It was a rainy, gloomy Thursday, typical Wisconsin Film Festival weather, actually. And since it's one of film's lamest tropes, appropriate. Yet, the fest gained a second-day momentum, chugging along as buzz grew and the weekend loomed large. #wifilmfest is heating up as well, with tweets and posts ranging from giddy to cautionary to confounded. Two thing seems apparent: Kleenex stock is gaining on the WFF index and black-leather-clad screeners enjoy a good German child molestation-based thriller.
