This beautiful photo of the storm that would soon besiege the Venice Film Festival was taken by producer Julia Chasman (25th Hour, Driving Lessons). I was a little too rough on Indiewire‘s Anne Thompson earlier today by suggesting she wasn’t trying hard enough, etc. The festival’s wifi press room was shut down during the rainstorm, forcing everyone (including Anne) to stop filing what they were working on and go elsewhere for wifi. So I get it. Criticism withdrawn.
