New Zealand film festival wish list

The New Zealand film festival is again upon us, and although there is no new Neon Genesis Evangelion movie this year there are plenty of other great looking movies. Here's the ten that most interest me, with trailers where available:

1. Exit through the gift shop

Allegedly a documentary about the graffiti artist Bansky. Which reminds me, "Wall and Piece" is a great addition to any Coffee table.

2. Cyrus

A comedy with Jonah Hill and John C Riley, need I say more?

3. The Room

An hilarious inept melodrama with a dedicated cult following.

4. Birdemic: Shock and Terror

The other 'So-Bad-It's-Good' film at the festival is an amazingly low rent ripoff of The Birds. Featuring special effects that resemble 90s gif animations.

5-7. Carlos Pt1, 2 and 3

Epic drama following the life of Carlos the Jackal, one of the world's most notorious terrorists.

8. A film unfinished

Documentary examining an unfinished Nazi propaganda film.

9. Salam Rugby

Documentary about a Iranian woman's rugby team(?!).

10. Babies

Documentary about four babies. Not the kind of film I would normally be interested in, but taking Kirsty should earn me some brownie points.
