  • The Sessions, screening this week at the Chicago International Film Festival

Last week our package for the Chicago International Film Festival included 25 new reviews, and this week our package includes ten new reviews. If you look at the online version of our package, where the two weeks are combined, it comes to 35 reviews. Of course, it’s unseemly to brag about the size of your package. But when you’ve got a package as big as our package, people ought to know just how large, how incredibly enormous, your package is.
