Day 8 (for me) of #TIFF09, it’s all turning into a blur.
Happened to glance at my schedule & realized, just in nick of time, that I was heading to wrong theatre. Close call!
My Year Without Sex
1st film today was My Year Without Sex, a nice lil’ Australian flick. Saw director’s first film at #TIFF09 and loved it so saw her new one.
The Invention of Lying
Next up: The Invention of Lying, Ricky Gervais’ movie directing debut. Hope he’s there for Q&A!
Not a fan of the Winter Garden theatre. It’s nice but not right for movies. Seats uncomfortable & the no food or drink is bullshit.
Booo, no Gervais or Q&A at all, that’s disappointing. Film was great though! Mainstream but very funny & Gervais is great in it!
Up next is Irish film called ‘Perrier’s Bounty’ with Cillian Murphy, Jim Boradbent & Brendan Gleason. High hopes for this one
Plot: gangster named Perrier looks to exact revenge on a trio of fugitives responsible for the accid. death of one of his cronies.
Unfortunately, no one was there for Perriers Bounty. This late in the fest, it’s rare that films get Q&As. Pretty good film.
Enjoyed Cillian Murphy as usual, good little caper film. Tonight at 9:00: The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights.
The White Stripes: Under Great White Northern Lights
Documentary looks back on the White Stripes’ ambitious 2007 tour of Canada, during which they played in every province and territory.
The back of Jack White!
White Stripes film was great, with great performances and interesting stuff off the stage as well.
The band was there to introduce the film and the crowd was one of the rowdiest and most fun I’ve ever been in. Had a great time!
