  Midnight Eye feature: Yamagata International Documentary Film Festival 2003 report
As the film charts the weather patterns throughout the four seasons, and how they influence the plants' growth, we are treated to a parade of startling shots: the microscopic capture of diffusing pollen and the rice grains actually forming within the plant; time-lapse photos of clouds; the water rippling with the wind.
With so many films playing, not to mention the large number of seminars, discussion panels, live music events and opportunities for a quick drink or two taking place around the screenings, there was little chance of catching any more than a mere fraction of the films showing.
The resulting films were screened in public venues such as university campuses all over America, and indeed across the world, with the intention of working up viewers and forcing them to confront the issues of the day.

 Zatôichi (2003)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
This continues for much of the film, with minor characters coming and going, partly contributing to the overall story but also breaking up the flow with subplots that are never really explained or understood.
The film has a great thread surrounding Osei where he acts as a comic relief - all his stuff is very funny and it really helps to break the tension; it's just the things like the bodyguard's subplot - nothing explained yet quite a lot of weight put on him.
He is very funny throughout the film and his lack of background is not a problem as none of his strands call upon that like the others do.

 The Best of Films of 2003 -- In Film Australia
Debut twin artists the Spierig brothers have assigned the pennies of their small budget (the film was made for less than one million dollars) incredibly shrewdly, mastering a cool visual style with a plethora of gross-out effects at their disposal.
If I had to name a best film for 2003 it would be this brilliantly made low-budget Brazilian movie that rocked the art house circuit all the way to the Oscars, where it sneaked in a couple of nominations and came away predictably empty handed.

This is going to sound sad, but the only way I could guess at the age of the film was that Kempson’s grudging assistant Kate Beahan (Julie Egan) in the filing department has a big LCD flat screen on her computer, so I knew it wasn’t a very old film.
I thought the ending to the film where one of the murderers who has remained undiscovered for thirty years and is finally trapped, was particularly deep - that idea of Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment, where the guilty person can’t live with the crime they have committed, it festers within them, and ruins their life.
They drove that guy (one of the murderers) to a house that looked like a dolls house that was in someone’s garage earlier in the film, barged their way in and dragged the guy round the house trying to force him to tell them where they murdered the little boy.

 Kinoeye | Macedonia: 2003 Skopje Film Festival
Audiences are fed up with the deforming tendencies of the larger events by which fading names are glorified in the hope of increasing the glamour and prestige of the festival and political factors seem to over-ride aesthetic ones in the selection process.
Unfortunately, it's these negative trends that can do most to marginalise films from areas with smaller national film traditions, such as central, southeast or eastern Europe and make it seem as though both output and acheivement in these countries is very low, something that has greatly disappointed film professionals from these regions.
Thus, small festivals that are located in such parts of the world offer a particularly valuable outlet for evaluating the aesthetic acheivements of the surrounding area and provide an invaluable fourm for directors and socialise with other creative artists in their field.
