Following his review of week one, Digital Cinema Media’s resident film specialist, Tom Linay, sums up the second installment for shots magazine.
The 57th BFI London Film Festival in association with American Express is over for another year and this year’s edition will go down as one of the best ever. Record equaling numbers attended the festival and some of the world’s biggest stars came and supported their films.
The festival started off at an incredibly high standard, with Captain Phillips, Gravity and Inside Llewyn Davis just three of the highlights from the opening week. There were also UK premieres for All Is Lost starring Robert Redford, Jonathan Glazer’s first film in nine years, Under The Skin and the Palme d’Or winning Blue Is The Warmest Colour. The final five days had a lot to live up to, but miraculously, it did.
