The latest installment of my increasingly delirious Berlinale Journal is up, covering Elegy, Kirschblueten, Elite Squad, Heavy Metal in Baghdad, Sparrow, and United Red Army. Writing it cost me the screening of Mike Leigh’s Happy Go Lucky, now a favorite for the Golden Bear — hopefully, I can catch a repeat. Since then, I’ve seen Hong Sangsoo’s Night and Day (****), Errol Morris’ Standard Operating Procedure (***), an absinthe-fueled screening of the Kinski doc Jesus Christus Erloeser (****), and Madonna’s Filth and Wisdom (a very surprising ***). Stay tuned for more.
