Our own Erik Davis is over in Berlin, overdosing on cinema and typing his fingers off into the wee smas bringing you reviews and dispatches from the Berlinale. Erik can't be everywhere in Berlin at once, though, so we thought we'd check in with some other folks who are hanging out at the Berlinale to see what other folks think about what they're seeing there.

Checking in with one of my own regular reads, Daily Green Cine, the blog "joined at the hip" with DVD-rental service Green Cine always has interesting things to say about the world of indie film, so naturally they have some dispatches from Berlin. David Hudson and his daughter, Adrienne, have a great back-and-forth exchange about Park Chan-wook's (Oldboy) latest film, I'm a Cyborg But That's Okay. David was going to walk out of the screening about a half-hour in; he ended up staying and was glad he did, although he wasn't that wild about the film overall. Daughter Adrienne had a much different take on the film. Oh, and -- bonus! -- David confesses that he's yet to be really blown away by Park Chan-wook! It takes guts to stand up and openly admit you don't get the appeal of a filmmaker everyone else seems to be on the bandwagon for, so hooray for David for having the critical integrity not to just go along with the pack.
