Friday Link Round-Up: Week 2

It's that time again, folks. Here are some of the latest reviews, recommendations and interviews from the esteemed critics and bloggers attending this year's EIFF!

Our Filmhouse colleagues have been dutifully doling out daily recommendations from the EIFF programme. Click through for their recommendations for the final weekend.

At The List, Niki Boyle has a great pitch for Life After Beth: ‘Imagine The Graduate, but with zombies.’ Catch the final screening tonight.

The List also had good things to say about several of our Best of the Fest films. Check out A Most Wanted Man reviewed by Hannah McGill, Henry Northmore's take on The Green Inferno, and Matthew Turner's review of In Order of Disappearance.

The Skinny team has also been hard at work. Josh Slater-Williams recommends I Believe in Unicorns, which has its final screening tomorrow. Chris Fyvie gave 4 stars to Coherence, on tonight. Meanwhile The Skeleton Twins, one of our Best of the Fest, got the thumbs-up from Jamie Dunn.

The Guardian reviewer Andrew Pulver gave A Dangerous Game a 4-star first look review. Catch it again this Sunday in Best of the Fest.

On Filmuforia, Matthew Turner interviews Jim Mickle, director of another Best of the Fest film – Cold in July.

From out and about at EIFF, The Scotsman shared some footage (or "proof"!) of Darth Vader's visit to Edinburgh for the Empire Magazine screening of The Empire Strikes Back.

Also over at The Scotsman, film critic Alistair Harkness gave Best of the Fest film Palo Alto the 4-star treatment. He also enjoyed Nic Cage's "complex portrait of a formerly bad man trying to do the right thing" in Joe.

Out in the blogosphere, a Shhh... reviewer recommends We Are MonsterCineVue's Patrick Gamble gave Snowpiercer the 5-star treatment ahead of its double-Best of the Fest screenings this Sunday. Meanwhile David Cairns encourages you to meet That Guy Dick Miller before the Festival's end (it's on today at 2.15pm).
