Berlin , quickshots, best, worst and in between

by Alex Deleon With some 400 films to choose from one might say that everybody sees a different festival over a ten day period. Of the official competition films two were early walkouts. Ralph Fiennes' "Coriolanus"  and the Bela Tarr entry  "A Torinoi Lo" (The Turin Horse) -- arguably the most bleak, depressing , and boring film ever made. It's all about two miserable people livinng in a miserable life in a miserable hut somewhere in the middle of nowhere and tr...
