Blogging from the Toronto International Film Festival all week!
I'm hitting the Toronto International Film Festival hard for the next ten days and will be blogging and twittering from all the lines that they don't kick me out of for excessive drinking in public! Right now, I'm at Jack Astor's above Yonge & Dundas Square, waiting for my first movie to begin. It's Passion Play, playing at 9pm at the Ryerson Theatre, starring Mickey Rourke, Bill Murray and Megan Fox (well, two outta three ain't bad). It's the word premiere for this one, and I'm thrilled to see two of my favourite actors in the same film, and excited at the prospect that both will be in attendance. Is there something wrong with me that I'm least interested in Megan Fox out of that threesome? She's no Kim Basinger, but Fox better not mash this up for Mickey and Bill. That's the Big Leagues, sister, not Triple-A. I've heard nothing re: buzz about this film, so that means it'll be a sleeper or it will blow. Kelly Lynch is in it too, a reunion between her and Mickey from the early 1990s flick Desperate Hours (which also starred Anthony Hopkins). Other films I'll be attending at TIFF: 127 Hours; Rabbit Hole (John Cameron Mitchell directs!); American Beauty; Casino Jack; The Butcher, the Chef, and the Swordsman; Never Let Me Go; Passion Play; Meek's Cut Off. Check back for all the goods!
