IN THE FADE and THE LITTLE HOURS
Welcome to the 23rd and final edition of my 2017 Melbourne International Film Festival (a.k.a. MIFF) audio reviews. In the one, I share my thoughts on the revenge thriller IN THE FADE and the raunchy period comedy THE LITTLE HOURS.
Well, that’s it! That are all 46 films that I have seen at MIFF this year. While it was a busy and tiring two weeks for me, I had an absolute ball nonetheless. I want to thank everyone for listening all my audio reviews on all the films that I saw at the festival this year, I really do appreciate it. Be sure to check all of them out right here at this link. I can’t wait to do it again next year. Now without further ado, here’s is my list of my top 10 films that I saw at MIFF 2017. Enjoy!
