DIFF Reviews by Wyatt Head

I wrote a one sentence review for each of the films I saw at the Dallas International Film Festival as a thank you to a freind who got my family Star Passes. As a Junior in HS it is hard to fit in everything. As a young person I need an escape from my teenage life and I find that films offer me that. The Festival meant a lot to me and I hope other young people like myself can appreciate festing as much as I do. I was able to watch nineteen films at the festival. I have also included a film seperate from the festival that I just saw tonight in fact. I'm trying this review thing and seeing how it goes. I hope you enjoy the reviews and I wish you a great rest of the year.


Being Elmo: A Puppeteers Journey- The big red monster comes to life in this captivating biographical story about how Kevin Clash grew his lovable red fur.

Rainbow's End- An out of the box and hilarious documentary that will make you cry in your seat in a directionless way.

LBW- If you want to murder someone by drowning them, then just hold this DVD box underwater after you have fun recognizing Dallas.

Soul Surfer- An inspiring true legend that turns tragic loss into beneficial gain.

Most Valuable Players-A movie that makes even the most introverted high school student break into song and dance.

OK Buckaroos -As soon as Jerry Jeff Walker plucks the strings the adventure begins in this incredible movie journey.

Beautiful Boy-Fabulous director Shawn Ku shows the behind-the-scenes victims of a college massacre, the parents of the murderer, in an inside out and crystal clear masterpiece that will have the audience thinking in a brand new way.

Mumbai Diaries-A thrilling film about life, fear, and above all things compassion.

Age of the Dragons-Don't let that harpoon get you out of your seat in this action-packed Moby Dick adaptation.

It's About You-John Mellencamp's mind is truly exposed in this brilliant behind-the scenes look at his rhythmic tune.

The Interrupters-This captivating film gives its audience an intelligent look at the risk and rigor of being a violence interrupter.

Green Crayons-Very pathetic but true in this "back in second grade" adaption.

Legend of Beaver Dam-This film will rock your camping boots off while also knocking you out of the seat with its little boy scout surprise.

Worst Enemy-This film shows that everyday life can be lived by even the quirkiest person and that no matter how quirky you are love can still be found.

8 Bits-A fully locked and loaded machine gun that will truly spray the audience with pure action.

The Birds Upstairs-A bone-cracking masterpiece that's like Repunzel except with the Aves class.

If A Tree Falls-Saddening and motivating is this story of the true horrors that are going on right on our land and ruining the atmosphere.

Salvation Boulevard-Funny, crazy, and religious. Yep that pretty much wraps up this movie.

Cooper And The Castle Hills Gang-An adorable and cute family film that will make those young patrons voices audible.

(separate from festival)

Something Borrowed-We are reminded that a romance always has its twists in this innovative and relatable film.
