It's been a pretty lacklustre festival so far. I've only seen one good film, and I've already walked out of two. Yesterday I saw Destristed, two shorts about porn and censorship by Larry Clark and Gasper Noe. After the first one, the lights went up. I looked around, confused. Everybody started filing out of the theatre. Outside people gathered around a small notice that says the other short was cancelled. What? No announcements, no nothing? The Larry Clark short was quite interesting. Guys audition for a possible role in a porn film. They talk about their first sexual experiences and their views on porn. Then one guy is selecetd as the lead, and he interviews potential actresses. By the end he does it on camera with the woman of his choice. He fucks her in the ass and literally, shit happens. Gross!
