This week's film festival previews, Guardian

3rd Mar 2011

With the advent of CGI there's very little real action in movies today. If you want to see real thrills then this is the event for you. Films here are mostly documentaries and mostly short, compiled into themed programmes; there's less need for plot when you have incredible scenes of parkour, surfing, skateboarding, biking, mountaineering, kayaking and people generally taking things to the max. Of the longer films, there's Ocean's 14 about a man-powered Atlantic crossing; One Crazy Ride, on motorbiking across India; and Mustang – A Journey Of Transformation, about a Tibetan monastery where Buddhists find their life of peaceful introspection at risk from modern culture … to the max.
