I finally watched Kim Ki-Duk's The Isle this evening. It was almost very good. I'm not sure how I feel about the last shot, and its overt symbolism; it was intriguing, but the shot that preceeded it, of the man disappearing into the green oasis in the middle of the lake, was so perfect that I wish it had ended there instead.

I really wish I could have seen it in the theater; the audience reactions must have been priceless.

The worst e-mail I received to day was a festival rejection, which wasn't so bad in and of itself - we're certainly used to them at this point, and it's not too hard to ignore them right now. And even if we get rejected from every other festival we submit to, we're still better off than we were in December, when we were about ready to sweep the movie under the rug.

The best e-mail I received today was from Jonathan Rosenbaum, writing to say he would do his best to catch one of the Deadroom screenings.
