Film School Finals

My favorite new reality show of the year, Film School, concludes its run tomorrow night (Friday, at 10:30 P.M. on Independent Film Channel). One of the four filmmakers has dropped out of school, and all three of the remaining film students have completed their 10-minute films. Will they be watchable? Find out tomorrow.

And if you think these film students are loopy, see what happens to famous directors who have big budgets to work with. Lost in La Mancha is a fascinating look at Terry Gilliam's ill-fated attempt to mount a film version of Don Quixote. Also on IFC, this Monday at 9:15 P.M.
