It's ironic that shortly after writing the first paragraph about the too smart/too stupid divide of Labor Day releases, I saw GETAWAY. Guess which category that falls into. :)

That review will go up Friday.

BTW, since we're nearing September, will you be attending this year's Toronto International Film Festival?

So I take it you didn't like it very much?

No. It conflicts with my son's first day of (nursery) school.

Ouch. Just saw Getaway myself and man, it really is an incredibly stupid movie. Unfortunately, it's not stupid and entertaining, just plain old stupid. :(

Completely understandable, as family always comes first. That being said, I'm sad to read that, as I've liked to find out about your take on this year's film festival and its crop of films, especially the more obscure or foreign films.

Perhaps next year then?

I think you mean 'taut' and not 'taught' on the blurb for Closed Circuit on the front page.
