Dispatch Five

That's a wrap. C'est une synthèse.

Except for JCVD, which finished screening before I arrived, I saw every film I wanted to see. Sauf pour JCVD, qui a pris fin le dépistage avant mon arrivée, j'ai vu tous les films que je voulais voir.

Slumdog Millionaire won the People's Choice Award, a decision I can support, unlike last year, when Eastern Promises won. Taudischien Millionnaire a remporté le People's Choice Prix, une décision je peux soutenir, contrairement à l'année dernière, lorsque Orientale Promesses a gagné.

I kinda want to hold my own film festival, even if it's just me renting out a theatre for a day and projecting a few DVDs. The problem is selling people on attending and where?

I have now spent 22 days of my life in Canada and seen 48 films in that time.

Back in the USSA tonight.
