An embarrassment of riches

The Toronto International Film Festival, the best and most accessible film festival in North America (if not the world), has unveiled the complete lineup for its 31st edition, running Sept. 7-16. My only complaint? David Lynch's secrecy-shrouded Inland Empire is not on the list (insert tantrum here).

But there are plenty of filmmakers to pick up the slack: Pedro Almodovar, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Paul Verhoeven, Patrice Leconte, Werner Herzog, Ken Loach, Leon Ichaso, Christopher Guest, Darren Aronofsky, Kenneth Branagh, Guillermo Del Toro, Mira Nair ... an embarrassment of riches, really. If you've never attended this festival and care at all about movies, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

Why isn't the new Lynch film playing? I am dying to see what he has been working on. Lynch stuff always amazes me. And i am especially looking foward to Del Toro's Pan's Labrynth and Aronofsky's The Fountain. I hope those are as good as they seem to be. Unfortunately I have no way of making it to the festival, so i'll just wait for the official theatrical release like most others.


Are you going to the Film Festival? Will you be posting reviews?

Too... many... movies.

I'd most want to see "For Your Consideration."

As for "Inland Empire," go to Venice. Or New York.
