My TIFF - Day 3

music: Placebo - Happy You're Gone

Hunger. I saw only one film, and my choice proved to be the right one. Hunger is absolutely mind-blowing. It's so intense! I love the opening scene, I love the shift from those scenes of extreme violence to a relaxed (at first) discussion between Bobby Sands and the priest. And I loved it how, once Sands started his hunger strike, everyone in the movie theater was quiet until the end (even those jerks who were laughing when there was nothing to laugh at; plus: how can anyone eat while watching a film like this?! seriously! this was definitely not a 'festival public').
