Here we are with another (probably my last) Sydney Film Festival critic and fan poll. I asked a number of friends, acquaintances, film critics and film buffs, to send me a list of every film they saw at this year’ Sydney Film Festival with a 1-5 star rating. I tallied up the results and have laid them out below. Thanks to everyone who took the time to participate.
In addition to what Sam, Shaun and I put together here on An Online Universe, there was a lot more fantastic coverage of this year’s festival. Here are some other sites to check out – 4:3 Film (Conor Bateman + many other contributors), Screen-Space (Simon Foster), The Cue Dot Confessions (Mike Scott), The Limerick Review (Lisa Malouf), Trespass Magazine (Alex Doneau), ccpopculture (Dave Crewe) and Graffiti With Punctuation (Blake Howard).
While there weren’t that many five star grades given this year (Tehran Taxi with 4 and Me & Earl & the Dying Girl with 3, topped that list), the quality of the festival is clear in that many films scored a 3.5+ average. In the table after the jump I have only included films with four or more grades, but first I have included a list of those with three or less (votes/ave).
