Omissions from BFI 57th London Film Festival


Whilst the line-up for this year’s festival is one of the best yet, it’s never going to please everyone, me included haha!

Here’s a few films that I would like to have seen included:

Snowpiercer (Joon-ho Bong)

Palo Alto (Gia Coppola)

The Wind Rises (Hayao Miyazaki)

Stray Dogs (Tsai Ming-liang)

Moebius (Kim Ki-Duk)

Prisoners (Denis Villeneuve)

Salinger (Shane Salerno)

Bastards (Claire Denis)

Blue Ruin (Jeremy Saulnier) – A personal favourite of mine from Cannes this year

I’m sure there are others too, but these sprang to mind from their recent screenings at other festivals.

  1. I’ll second the Tsai. Ridiculous omission. Did anyone start an e-petition yet?
