HAMMER & TICKLE – A COMMUNIST JOKE BOOK by Ben Lewis
Sure! Who else? Urban painting? So 80’s! The Hip-Hop Project? Puah! The world according to Sesame Street? Ha! I mean, come on, its clear. Educational insight, building awareness, emotional to tears, well realized and loads of good jokes! It’s made to be a winner! I never been in a cinema so much as I been this week. And think, this year I’m done with movies (wait, cause I should see The parfum and Little Miss Sunshine. And Volver. And Open Season. And The Fountain again… hmmm).
But it was more than worth it, specially thinking that I will maybe not have had another chance to see some of the those movies (Big Bad Swim, Swinger Club, ODZ) and for this I am deeply thankful to the organizers of the Zurich Film Festival! Keep it up and looking forward for the third edition.
