Today’s Toronto rundown: Joel and Ethan Coen‘s Burn After Reading at 9 am, which will necessitate blowing off a 9:30 screening of The Secret Life of Bees and a 9:45 screening of Waltz With Bashir (which I missed in Cannes). A writing period from 11 to 12:30 (which will necessitate not seeing Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist) follows, and then comes Ed Harris‘s Appaloosa at 1 pm. (I saw Rachel Getting Married in Los Angeles so missing the 1:45 screening of this Jonathan Demme film is of no concern.)
Then comes a battle between Witch Hunt and O’Horten at 5 and 5:30, respectively. (I’ll be thinking and deciding right up to the showtimes.) The last film of the day is a public showing of Guillermo Arriaga‘s The Burning Plain, which will be followed by a chat with Arriaga and then, most likely, a party or two.
