The Potluck Film Fest: Eat My Shorts!

The 11 movies and three short films brought to my Potluck Film Festival in May averaged 68% on my Flickchart, with all but two making it into the top half but only three higher than 80%. Mike Seaman and Rachel Gilbert split the top two slots, with Osama and Much Ado About Nothing coming in close at 86% and 85%, respectively. Nigel Druitt's monthly pick again hovered near the middle of my chart, while another of Ty Tag's personal favorites impressed in moments but not as a whole.
