|How I Live Now. This film was directed by the same guy who did 'Last King Of Scotland', so I had some high hopes. No comment.|

I don't want to say I'm feeling like I'm living GROUNDHOGS DAY (the movie), but each morning is turning into a kind of nice routine. The alarm goes off, I look around my turn of the century room in the bed and breakfast and think: movies today. Lots of movies. Not complaining...well maybe I am because out of five films, only one was worth seeing and hoping it gets the light of day it deserves. Let me start with that one - which was the last of the day.

Just a musing came to me today while watching a film set in New York (the otherwise thoroughly enjoyable 'Can A Song Change Your Life?' [see below]. Why is it so easy to park in movies? I don't know about you, but I can circle several blocks in San Francisco for a LONG time before parking. Anyway, as my grandmother would say, if that's my biggest problems with the movies I've been seeing here at TIFF, then...and its not. We're in the thick of it and thick is a good description. LOADS of movies we want to see booked on top of each other with masses and masses of the masses trying to get in. Yesterday was a mixed bag - mainly good.
|You Are Here. Owen Wilson and Zach Galifanakis are just plain mismatched both together and for the script as two close buddies struggling with being grown up men.|

My red-eye arrived late enough for me to keep the boss waiting. On the positive side, customs were fast, luggage arrived and its a pretty fall day here. Day One started out pretty scary as I left my iPhone in the limo. Got it back. That's living lucky. And we even got checked in time enough to rush to catch a screening. Too bad it was moved to tonight. Ok, so far things are incredibly disorganized in terms of the screening schedules. So many additions and changes its near impossible to figure where to go. Hoping its just typical first day confusion. This year there are so many movies to see, and so many scheduled on top of each other.
