Today, the first full day of the 2013 Telluride Film Festival, was one of no small expenditure. A 6:30 wake-up and 2 and 1/2 hours of writing. Picked up festival pass and waited in line for a full hour to get on the bus to the Patron’s Picnic. Enjoyed brunch for about 90 minutes, give or take. Uploaded photos to HE, barely made it to 2:30 pm screening of Labor Day at Chuck Jones. Learned on gondola that volunteers are referring to Werner Herzog cinema as “the Zog.” Back down to village, wrote scattershot review of Labor Day, just made it to 7 pm screening of Inside Llewyn Davis at Galaxy. Had to leave 25 minutes before it ended to make 9 pm screening of Erroll Morris‘s The Unknown Known, his Fog of War-ish Donald Rumsfeld doc. Decided against attending 11:45 pm screening of Jonathan Glazer‘s Under The Skin — too whipped. It’s now just after midnight and I need six. Up again tomorrow at 6:30.

Friday plan: Five TBA screenings slated, the first one starting at 4 pm. Alleged/possible 12 Years A Slave TBA screening at ‘the Zog” at 5:30 pm. Possibly start day with a 9 am screening of Gia Coppola‘s Palo Alto. Writing break from 11:30 to 2:30 pm. Under The Skin screening at Chuck Jones at 7:30 pm. Galapagos Affair doc at 9:30 pm.
