This year's Denver Film Festival has a diverse lineup of killer films both small and large. To select just ten meant I had to strain out promising titles like Lucifer, shot on tondoscope and directed by the provocative Gus Van Den Berghe, or special presentations like Mia Madre by Italian director Nanni Morreti.
