TIFF Update

Yaseen Ali here. In short, I am alive and watching movies, a fact the sidebar can attest to. I figured I should post something to accompany those grades, if only to push down that Sex and the City tirade posted way back in June (!). Onto better shores.

So. Another exciting TIFF event has come and gone. I enjoyed myself these last few days, even if I didn't hand over my whole life to the festival this year like usual. Juggling a busy work schedule teaching at U of T and moving downtown from the suburbs at the beginning of the month, I had intuited correctly that doing any more than twelve films would be ludicrous. And moreover, I loved the breathing room I enjoyed in between screenings.

I plan to write one or two full-length reviews (most likely for Lorna's Silence and Disgrace), but if you want to ask any specific questions, feel free to use the Comments space. It's always more fun that way, in my opinion.

Since I don't have internet at my new place, my updates will be a little erratic, but stay tuned.
