FUTURE OF THE IRISH FILM INDUSTRY!
Watching a short on the RTÉ website called Crossword and it really is shit. Is this the future of our film industry? Crap shorts that rip off stuff like Amélie. Stupid and annoying voiceover, titles melting on screen, and absolutley zero narrative. Then there's the obligatory plinky piano soundtrack. They couldn't even get the parrot to say 'absolutely' when earlier in the film they said it could. This is how bad Irish cinema really is when rubbish like this gets accepted for funding and a TV screening.
Rather sad article in today's Irish Independent newspaper about Ireland's most overrated female film director. She's been abroad...
