More Berlinale Updates

In today’s NY Times, Dennis Lim surveys the Berlinale, know as the granddaddy of all film festivals. Along with comments about the well known figures like Scorsese, Polanski, Von Trier, and unique events like a screening of the magical new cut of METROPOLIS,  is this comment:

“Among the more adventurous films in the Forum section Yang Rui’s “Crossing the Mountain,” a portrait of a southwestern Chinese village, splits the difference between ethnography and avant-garde fiction. And Matt Porterfield’s “Putty Hill,” set among alienated kids in suburban Baltimore, also subverts its realist aesthetic with formal trickery, encouraging its actors to break the fourth wall. “
