Soooo many good movies.. I'm missing out on this years Stockholm Film Festival (for the first time in 6 years!) so LFF sounded like a good substitute. But I decided to work instead as I need the money... ;(

But damn if I don't want to go now...MicMacs, Bunny and the Bull, Metropia, The Road, Valhalla Rising, Up in the Air, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Cold Souls, The Limits of Control, Mother...
