Catching up at TIFF 2002

The 2002 Toronto International Film Festival is quickly becoming history as events begin to wind down and some of the guests start to depart. Today, one of the darker days in history and a tough time for many, marks the point in the festival when last year’s red carpets were removed and things took a much lower key in respect to the events in New York. With that in mind I went to see a film called 11’09″01 last night (which will be a Gala presentation tonight).

Planning my strategy for TIFF

To start off my festival experience, I went to see Nick Nolte in The Good Thief–a film that easily swept me off my feet and totally surprised me. I am so surprised by how much I loved this film. I’m working on the review still, but I hope to have it up tomorrow morning before I run out to the first films of the morning. Unfortunately, I got some bad news tonight.
