Luke Dufour should go to this.,

Awards at film festivals on the same level as "Shadows of the Mind" mean nothing in the film industry. This was a movie that should have been left on the cutting room floor.

Sundance, Cannes, and TIFF is where it is at, ... all the others mean nothing.

Number One Son:

Just wondering where you watched the screening of the Story of Luke and what your credentials are to be able to state your opinion on film screenings? This one in particular.

The movie is being shown at 9:45 in the morning? Can't the organizers show this at a more appropriate time, like say in the evening, when most people go to the movies?

Icemantbi:

Story of Luke is one film of many in a six day film festival; not a regular movie playing at the Galaxy. Here is a link showing a tentative schedule of the films being presented:
