| Captivating premier at TIFF
Just saw the premiere at TIFF last night. In fact, it was my very first viewing in TIFF -- ever. And wasn't disappointed, not in the least. Before the premier, Xavier Dolan, Gaspard Ulliel and others made themselves available for photos. They were standing two feet away. I didn't recognize anyone, so just moved along. Too bad. I should have taken at least one photo. They were also available to answer questions after the film. A truly enjoyable experience.

What about Juste La Fin du Monde? It was captivating and thought provoking to say the least. Surely, I'm not like any of those characters. But the more I watched, I more I was drawn in. Then I saw myself in them, just a word here and there. But it was enough, even terrifying. What would you do under the same circumstances? And if anyone thinks this could never remotely happen in real life, think again.

You should go and see It's Only the End of the World. This film is not for the faint of heart.

My only complaint -- the theatre was too loud. You could hear a pin drop if nothing was playing. Everyone was captivated. The volume could have been turned down.
