My TIFF buddy Ken Morefield and I informally chatted on the phone about Blade Runner: The Final Cut for an intervew he has posted at Matthew’s House Project, delving into such issues as directors’ cuts, human values, and science fiction.
Apart from that, I’m immersed in writing up film descriptions for this year’s Palm Springs International Film Festival catalogue; the full line-up should be announced on December 23. Anyone else planning to attend?
And on a personal note, I’ve just had to painfully turn down an invitation to be an official guest of the Mexico City International Contemporary Film Festival next February due to personal obligations. Had it been any other time of the year, I would’ve leaped at the opportunity! Fingers crossed that I’ll have better luck in a year–it looks like a wonderful festival.
I’m hoping to catch up on posting a few reviews by the end of the year, and of course, keep an eye on this space for my annual best lists…
