Toronto: day "—7"

Today, we've got a the last couple of prefestival screenings down here in New York. This might be termed "Indian autumn" as it got down to the fifties overnight and the weather is awful. We're going to start posting reviews on Monday, these will be major films that have already opened in New York, but that's for later.

Meanwhile, I have to change a half a grand to canadian so I could pay the hotel bill in advance as they don't take credit cards. I stayed there last year, and that's the only drawback to an otherwise wonderful little place.

Meanwhile there are three films, the week's big releases that aren't having press screenings, They can't be THAT bad could they?

Hey there,

I came across your blog from the TIFF website. I work for a company called Ambient Vector. We make a product called Nakama that lets you take pictures and videos from your phone and publish them right up to your blog (even letting you use your voice to add comments on them) in a single step. We haven't launched this to the public yet, but since you're going to be at the film festival, we thought it's pretty likely that you'll be taking some cool pictures and videos with your phone, and it'd be cool to put them up on your blog!

The service is totally free... we just want to get your feedback on the product, and hopefully make it easier to share your film festival experience.

If you're interested, please send me a note at You can check out our blog at, or my own at if you'd like to learn a bit more about us. Thanks!
