VIFF 2012 review: 10 + 10
Not everyone in this giant omnibus of five-minute films from Taiwan’s directorial community is a beginner (Hou Hsiao-hsien is one of the contributors), and much of the material is universal (a couple of mini thrillers plus a condensed war movie). There are also a number of entries, such as the one dealing with the Taiwanese flag, that are aimed squarely at insiders. Still, there’s plenty of good stuff for outsiders as well.
Granville, September 27 (6 p.m.); Pacific Cinémathèque, September 30 (3:45 p.m.); Vogue, October 3 (11:30 a.m.)
