Continued Responses to TFF #41/Rate Those Films

Good Wednesday Everyone...

The ratings from readers have begun to come in and this is your reminder to be a part of the annual rating compilation of  the films you saw at Telluride.  Please drop me a line with your rating of each of the films you saw using a 0-5 scale with "0" for the atrocious and "5" for the sublime.  Send them to me via Twitter @Gort2 or email: or as a comment to this post.  I'll collate them and publish the results in the next week or so.  It's fun!

More tomorrow...
