TIFF 2007

9-18-2007 Sorry for the delay in posting this – it's funny how momentum screeches to a halt as soon as TIFF ends. Even the number of hits per day to this diary has dropped off dramatically since Frida…
9-15-2007 At last! The festival is over! I know, shocking that a comment like that would come from me, right? As I've said repeatedly during TIFF 2007, I was just too pooped to enjoy it properly, I…
9-14-2007 Know what's SUPER-fun? Know what makes for an excellent movie-watching experience? Standing in line outside during a sudden rainstorm and getting soaked from the knees down (God bless my …
9-13-2007 The Wailing Wall. The Great Wall of China. All impressive walls. But the most formidable wall of all is the one into which I ran face-first today: the "Okay, I cannot TIFF for one mo…

9-10-2007 Today was Eric and Dan's last full day in Toronto. They leave tomorrow and I'm fairly certain the marquee lights at the fest will not shine as brightly once they're gone. I'm sad. I began t…
9-9-2007 I have insomnia. Or, perhaps, not insomnia but some kind of freaky sleep situation where I can't fall asleep at night and I can't stay asleep in the morning. For the past few days, my body's …
It's not every day that you can say your first order of business is going to the movies with Charlize Theron, but that's exactly what we did at 3:00 PM today. Joining the 'Lize in support of their new…
