I’ll be attending press conferences for Woody Allen‘s Vicky Cristina Barcelona at 2:30 pm and James Toback‘s Tyson at 4 pm. I’m trying to bang out a Tyson piece as we speak. There’s an Indiana Jones party starting at 5:30 pm (I saw George Lucas the other night at the Kung Fu Panda party.) There’s a party being thrown by the Turkish ministry starting at 9 pm — presumably an opportunity to speak with Three Monkeys director Nuri Bilge Ceylan. I was told last week I might get into the Vanity Fair party at the Hotel du Cap, but that’s starting to look dicey.
There’s also Pablo Larrain‘s Tony Manero, which is having a Director’s Fortnight showing at 10 pm this evening. I missed the 8:30 am screening of Walter SallesLinha de Passe. I don’t have to make journalistic history every day. I can just attend a few things and shufle around and write what I write when I get to it.
