My Toronto Festival Itinerary

After scrambling to pick the films that I wanted for about twelve hours and frantically faxing my order while contending with a flood at work, I got 46 of my 50 first choices... The four that I didn't get were Francis Ford Coppola's The Conversation (no biggie, really), Sokoruv's Russian Ark (Oct. Release in NYC), Brian De Palma's Femme Fatale (an early November release), and Neil Jordan's The Good Thief (which is a bit of a bummer, since I don't know when it's coming out).

Here's my tentative schedule. Hopefully, I'll be able to squeeze in one or two more films:
