and the wind made it a perfect impressionistic canvas.

the best thing was the wagon.
a massive animal. and so vulnerable.
today is the last day of the film festival,only two more to go. I gave away two tickets. that makes it about 26 films I have seen.
Like eating cake all the time, and being whipped emotionally from one side of the room to another every few hours. I loved it.

You either stand around and wait for the really good moments to take photos of the stars, or you go see the movie. I see the movies, but I have to say it's getting a little hard not to catch papparazzi fever. Robert Duvall, Viggo Mortensen and young Kodi Smit-McPhee were there for The Road and when I was coming out of that film there was Drew Barrymore.
The Road is a good, maybe great movie. I read the book so I am not sure if I saw it the same way someone who has not read it.
It takes place after some unnamed cataclysm. It is the story of two survivors, a man and his son. I don't think it will be popular in the US.
I asked one of the producers where it was filmed, because the landscape is so monumentally blasted--some places were Mt St Helens, Pittsburgh, and worst of all, in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans.
