For anyone interested the final GFDF16 dogageddon count was 13 dog deaths. Good year for movies, bad year for dogs.
Quietly dignified portrayal of a man disappearing into nothing as he’s pushed into the margins of society and homelessness. Very sparse dialogue, tight fractal shots through windows and doorways, as if the character only exists in the indifferent gazes of those around him, as he becomes an extra in the background of his own story.
Also there was a Q&A with Richard Gere afterward, and he seems like an awfully nice chap. He hugged a lady who called him hot. Made her day.
Having a blast!
Just wanna say I thought the Frightfest shorts have been of an even higher standard than the features, really good selection. My favourites were KEEN-wah, about a vegan zombie finding love, and Portal to Hell!, Rowdy Roddy Piper’s last role as a janitor battling Cthulhu.
