Recommended Posts

Well, Peter, Ron, whaddaya think?

And with that, I'm off to Santa Fe to celebrate the 8th anniversary of my marriage to Anne. Have a good week, everyone. I may check in later this week when Anne inevitably discovers a great new book, like she always does on our vacations.

P.S.  I COULD BE WRONG.

Hmmm, I've seen all of the Top 22 films except for Dead Ringers (#6, 1988), Les Ordres (#7, 1974), Les Bons D

I just saw Spider yesterday. A British film made by Canadians. But very good. A bout of insomnia found me doublespeeding through it again to work out the real story.

Couldn't find another thread on it, but the search waters were rather muddied by Spider-man. Grr

TIFF organizers have released their list for 2006 (as opposed to the all-time lists Jeffrey linked to above). All ten films will be shown at the Cinematheque Ontario January 26 - February 3, and a publicist at the Pacific Cinematheque tells me they will be shown there, too, February 22 - 28.

FWIW, I have seen exactly half of this year's list -- two in regular release and three at the Vancouver festival (although I believe at least two of the festival films have since been released to regular theatres here, too) -- and Variety notes that, while this list DOES include lowbrow box-office successes like Trailer Park Boys: The Movie, it does NOT include the all-time home-grown box-office champ, Bon Cop, Bad Cop, which also came out this year.
