Film Festivals 2000

A broad spectrum of films this year offered up Miyazaki's beautiful anime 'Princess Mononoke', kiwi comedy 'Magik and Rose', and also from a New Zealand director, Alison McLean's wonderful 'Jesus' Son'. Eric Bana piled on the pounds for his role as 'Chopper' and Christian Bale played a different kind of maniac in 'American Psycho'. The Dogme team brought us the deliciously disturbing 'Celebration' and from China came the sumptuous historical epic 'The Emperor and the Assassin'.
