Hi, I don't know whether I can express myself well in English since it's only my second language. But I'll try my best to introduce these films to you as they're really worth watching.

Before Sunset: It's the sequel of Before Sunrise, both written and directed by Richard Linklater and played by Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. Ethan plays an American guy named Jesse and Celine plays a French woman named Celine. In Before Sunrise, they meet each other on train and spend nearly one day together before parting to continue their own journey. In Before Sunset, they meet each other again after 9 years. I like this film because it has a lot of natural talking, making you feel that the two characters are really communicating and spiritually exchanging with each other.

Requiem for a Dream: This film is about addiction--addiction to drugs, addiction to losing weight...all are addictions to dreams that eventually lead to self-destruction. This film uses very strong visual images to tell the story. The background music is really great and combines well with the rhythmical editing.

I'm just an ordinary audience in the HKIFF, so I won't be able to interview anyone. But I'll discuss the films with some of my friends and I'll also write about the films in my blog.

I haven't watched the Woody Allen films that you've mentioned. But I've watched a few of his others, including Annie Hall and The Purple Rose of Cairo. I like these two a lot.Match Point is his latest film, starring Scarlett Johansson and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. But I don't know whether it's still showing in the US.

Happy Easter!

Hi, I haven't seen those movies recently. But I've bought Requiem for a Dream and I can re-watch it if you're interested in reviewing it together.
I guess the time for films to be shown in theatre is different in US and HK. So, it may be a bit hard to review films that are being shown in theatre. How about we choose films that have already released videos to do the review?
