Just saw Atanarjuat

Just saw Atanarjuat ("The Fast Runner"), the Inuit film. Fantastic. It's got the best parts of both a documentary and an epic saga. Don't be deterred by the three hour running time: have patience. The film does keep moving (the first twenty minutes are the worst, actually), and it's really worth it. Now playing at a tiny art house near you.
