Massive Toronto Film Fest Blow-Out, or something... 



My Festival Schedule  


Psychic Festival Preview - Just riding the buzz here, really and prognosticating wildly, for better or worse, in an attempt to shirk the annoying preview prose that kept creeping up when I tried to write about this stuff normally. Please don't take this seriously. If I really thought Japon was going to be awful, I wouldn't plan on going to see it.  


Festival Diary (the real meat & potatoes) - hopefully I'll link to my daily updates from here once the festival actually begins. If not, please pretend the capsules from my preview are my actual opinions until I get back.
