TIFF 2007 (Vickie’s diary): Last day of the fest… Finally!!!!

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 think. So, as strange as it may sound, I’m actually quite relieved that the whole thing is done. …

TIFF 2007 (Vickie’s diary): Bob Dylan(s), Rambow, and a second wind.

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 umbrella for what flimsy protection it provided during the windy downpour) and THEN sitting through a movie inside the Ryerson Theatre, where temperatures always feel …

TIFF 2007 (Vickie’s diary): Losing momentum and experiencing Woody Allen déjà vu.

9-12-2007 I’m having a very hard time maintaining momentum as TIFF 2007 winds down. I find myself increasingly disinterested in my selections this year, and skipping movies rather frequently without even trying to sell my tickets in a rush line. I just can’t be bothered. Maybe it’s exhaustion, maybe it’s distraction, maybe it’s some kind …

TIFF 2007 (Vickie’s diary): Are the audiences dwindling? (and OW! my neck!)

9-11-2007 Okay, so, somehow and somewhere I must have turned my head in the wrong way and secretly wrenched my neck, because I woke up this morning mostly unable to turn my head to the left. Like, at all, without pain. Ask me how much fun this made watching movies today. First up was Breakfast …

TIFF 2007 (Vickie’s diary): Already, the most wretched of the fest.

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 this dark (literally and figuratively) day with The Jane Austen Book Club (6/8), a very sweet, fun, light-hearted romantic …

TIFF 2007 (Vickie’s diary): Vickie has insomnia, but still catches some flicks.

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 decided to wake me around 6:30am, regardless of when I hit the hay the night before, and then …
