HotDocs: Family Nightmare + Francophrenia

May 3, 2012 | By

Just uploaded – more HotDocs capsule reviews: Dustin Guy Defa’s Family Nightmare [M] (2011) and James Franco & Ian Olds’ Francophrenia (Or Don’t Kill Me, I Know Where the Baby Is) [M] (2012).

Just started today: Toronto Jewish Film Festival, with the first film music sidebar screenings to begin this Saturday. Read Eric Veillete’s piece, though one correction: the Alex North-related screening isn’t Streetcar Named Desire, but The Last Butterfly (1990).

Of note to monkey fans: a rare 35mm archival print screening of the original 1968 Planet of the Apes, with composer Mychael Danna providing introductory insight into Jerry Goldsmith’s remarkable score.

Current mental state: not bad, but this goddamn weather system is making it another Advil Day.

Link of the moment: Planet of the Apes colouring book gallery. Not mine, but I still have the ones I coloured when I was 10. I managed to draw within the lines. Most of the time.

That is all.
