It’s EU Film Festival time at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago and I’ll be seeing six of their many offerings this year. The Gene Siskel Film Center is a wonderful place to watch a film. The theaters are intimate and comfortable and they are always showing films you can’t see in wide release. It is a hidden gem of Chicago and I don’t use it nearly as much as I should.
I have a general idea of which films I will be seeing, but that’s likely subject to change as life gets in the way so I will refrain from saying up front which are on the agenda. As per usual with movies I see in the theater, I will be doing reviews for them all. The first one is “Amour Fou”. I can say that because I watched it yesterday. It is a little insane. Which is appropriate because it means “Insane Love”. The review will likely be up tomorrow as I’m still processing it.
