Actually the recap does mention one title (Peggy Ahwesh's newest, which she liked) and also names the maker of the booed film (if not the film itself). But I think the recap could still be interesting or useful without a list of titles, and it's perhaps more so for not getting bogged down in specifics or targeting individual filmmakers for opprobrium. This little post is really just a footnote to her widely circulated broadside from a few years ago, although while there she was concerned primarily with the limited inclusion of films by women (an omission that Mark appears to have worked to address), her complaint now seems to be more general. And since people have been griping (generally) about TIE and other festivals here lately, perhaps a little general griping about Views could be tolerated as well.

But your point about the Facebook thing being only semi-dialogic or open is well taken. Guess Facebook won't set us all free after all.

The kind of amusing thing about the Facebook page is that it's so far a pretty insular discussion. Unless you are friends with Su, you can't take part. In an attempt to participate, I sent a request when the thread first appeared and so far it hasn't been accepted. The recap doesn't say anything about any film shown but is more a generalized complaint about the programming, and a cheer for someone who booed during a film (and a boo for the person who told the booer their behavior was disrespectful).

See Su Friedrich's Facebook page for a brief but wonderfully contrary recap.

Iíll have something on selected films from Views in Senses of Cinema at some point. Copy is due end of October, but not sure when itíll be published (SoC is online).

And Genevieve Yue is writing something for Reverse Shot (also online).

I was wondering if anyone might be able to point me towards any coverage of Views that I haven't come across and/or if those who had the opportunity to attend would be willing to share their thoughts (on the films, on the program as a whole, on interesting discussions that might have taken place, anything really) with the list (or if preferred, privately off-list). There were the overviews by Manohla Dargis and Tony Pipolo, both lovely, and maybe one or two scattered articles on a few specific films, but other than that I have found very little. If so, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time...
