Milky Way Liberation Front

Another strong contender for best title of the festival, this is a cute, funny little Korean film about a guy struggling to get his feature film debut made – or indeed, written.

There’s a slightly twitchy cross-cutting of stories/timelines/fact/fiction that could get irritating, but luckily it’s executed with enough irreverence to be endearing. Lots of nice comic touches, with a particularly neat central concept, whereby the central character (who loses his girlfirend because he talks too much), attempting to write about a character with aphasia, first develops aphasia, and then finds himself making sounds like musical instruments when he attempts to speak (only able to be understood when heard through electronic equipment).
