Three Film Monday

Early start to the day. Good walking weather, though. Met a neighbour near the beginning of the line, so got my favourite seat at Ryerson. "All the Kings' Men" was long and very intense, with fine performances by Jude Law, Anthony Hopkins and Sean Penn. I want to order the original version from 1949 with Broderick Crawford from the Library and compare. It was rated 4 stars in my Movie book. Ran to the Elgin where Josie was waiting to see her first Festival Film, "For Your Consideration" with some of the old cast from Waiting for Guffman, and Best in Show...Catherine O'Hara, Eugene Levy and others. An audience of fans enjoyed it very much, and many of the cast and director, Christopher Guest, were there for a funny Q&A. On to the next...the Paramount for the final film of the day "The Book of Revelation", a very intense Aussie film about a dancer and his abduction by 3 females. The producer, director and one actress were in attendance and tried to explain and offer commentary at the Q&A. More tomorrow.
