I managed to see a great many films over the two-and-a-half weeks -with one outstanding work, several very good films, a few surprises and no real howlers. I didn't write about all of the films I saw (although there are a few more reviews I'll link to soon), but below are five on which I wanted scribble up a few words. (Star ratings, as an added indication for quick perusal, are out of five.)
