WINTER 2003

LYDIA and JAN'S MIDWINTER FILM FESTIVAL

JAN 20 THRU FEB 29, 2003 
ALBANY, NY 
The cold weather has driven us inside, especially since we've just recently
returned from Argentina where it was the middle of the summer. Besides,
we didn't see enough movies in Buenos Aires anyhow. 

LYDIA - World's largest street

JAN - Sandboard el maestro

Rating System - In view of the weather in Albany which has driven us into the movie theater in the first place, we will use a temperature rating for our reviews based on the following scale in degrees Fahrenheit: 

  •     33   The best - thawed us out 
  •     20   OK - but didn't change anything 
  •     10   Bad - made us colder 
  •       0   Awful - chilled us to the bone 
  •    -10   Egad - how much worse can it get?
