looks great, i can't wait. i wonder what tricks they have up their sleeve for the rest of it.

im a bit surprised that koreeda's new film is here. people ive asked about it have been trashing it all over the place. but maybe it's weird little masterpiece.

I'm wondering about the rest of the schedule too. I wonder if it's at all related to that mystery film on 2/20.I'm also hoping they don't wait until Thursday and make City of Life and Death just a closing film. I'm kinda looking forward to Air Doll. I'm hoping it's more unexpected than unformed.

I second that about AIR DOLL. And OVER THE EDGE is going to be a pretty amazing screening as well. I hope Matt Dillon shows up.

Do they typically fill in some of the slots with Berlinale titles? If so, Koji Wakamatsu's CATERPILLAR seems like a possibility.

Good question, Berlinale is probably too soon, Viennale is a possibility. They tend to be the overlooked stuff from last year that didn't make it into NYFF or the country-specific film programs.
