The 23rd Helsinki International Film Festival – Rakkautta & Anarkiaa

For the past two days I’ve been to The 23rd Helsinki International Film Festival with another Forced Perspective author, Juuso Uusimäki. We won’t cover the whole festival since it would be too expensive, but we have already seen 5 films and are going to see one more. Eventually both of us will publish reviews of these films and the first such review is already out: my take on Evangelion 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance. The reviews I write will be marked with “R&A by JL” (Rakkautta & Anarkiaa by Johannes Lauri) whereas Juuso’s texts will be marked with “R&A by JU”. This post will be updated with links to the reviews as they are published.

Johannes Lauri
Evangelion 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance
Summer Wars
Symbol
Love Exposure
Scott Pilgrim Vs The World
The Illusionist:
With great difficulty I have to admit I won’t be reviewing this wonderful little film. Charming art design for a funny yet utterly bittersweet tale that digs deep into Tati’s personal feelings. It was a great way to end the festival trip.

Juuso Uusimäki (ended up not doing the reviews due to lack of time)
Evangelion 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance
Summer Wars
Symbol
Love Exposure
Scott Pilgrim Vs The World
The Illusionist

PS: Rakkautta & Anarkiaa is the name the festival is better known for and it literally means Love & Anarchy in Finnish.
