I arose at 7 am (after crashing three and a half hours earlier) to catch this morning’s Beanpole screening at 8:30 am. I went home to write but nothing would come — too whipped. So I hit the local Carrefour for a couple of things. I finally got down to the Beanpole review around 2 pm, but finishing meant blowing off the 4 pm screening of Mati Diop‘s Atlantique (aka Atlantics), which was probably a bad idea considering the rave reviews. (The French-Senegalese Diop is the first black woman to have a film in competition here.) Now it’s pushing seven, and I’m determined to catch a 90-minute nap before seeing Ken Loach‘s Sorry We Missed You at 10 pm.
