This should be interesting.

The last time I went to a film festival without a badge was Sundance 2001, and after two days onsite, that changed.  I'm not sure I can expect the same sort of miracle from the Toronto International Film Festival, but that's not going to deter me.

In a little over an hour, I'm out the door, on the way to the airport, and then on a red-eye overnight to Toronto, where I'll arrive tomorrow morning around 9:30 AM.  I'm hoping to kick off the festival with "The Invention Of Lying" and wrap it up next Wednesday with... well, we'll see when we get there.

In the meantime, I've got films like "Up In The Air," "The Imaginarium Of Dr. Parnassus," "Ondine," "A Serious Man," and "The Men Who Stare At Goats" to see, along with the films I have no idea about yet, which always end up being a favorite part of any festival experience.

I'll be here to share it all with you in the days ahead, and I'll have some more reviews for you tomorrow, before the festival gets started, just to clear the decks.

See you soon...
