My favorite films were Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Parasite, Motherless Brooklyn and Tell Me Who I Am. This festival prompts me to create a new rating called, Sigma-Beta Endorphin for those films that are better than Sigma, but not great like the Beta-endorphin films. The Sigma-Beta films I really enjoyed were Those Who Remained, Pain and Glory, First Cow, and Lyrebird.The new rating is a work in progress.
Even though the Q&A on Saturday with Martin Scorsese highlighting it before the film, Varda by Agnes, was excellent, Sunday was really my Q&A day. Starting with Edward Norton, Willem Dafoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw with Motherless Brooklyn, then Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne with The Aeronauts and concluding with Guy Pearce, Claes Bang and Vicky Krieps with Lyrebird. Very informative day, making me happy I stayed for the Q&A's.
