Rather than hang around Manhattan and attend and cover the New York Film Festival I decided last weekend to pack it in and return to Los Angeles. My flight leaves late this afternoon and arrives this evening. I’ve seen Captain Phillips, of course, and I gather I’ll be able to see Ben Stiller‘s The Secret Life of Walter Mitty in Los Angeles concurrent with its NYFF showing. I’m presuming that a day-and-date LA screening of Spike Jonze‘s Her will also kick into place.
