Well, that was a hell of a ride.
I never thought I’d be name-checked in BlogTO and POV on the same day — well, ever — but that happened on Friday, along with the general outpouring of support for my departure from NOW and congratulations on the new gig at TIFF.
I’m genuinely touched by it all, and more than a little overwhelmed, and more than anything it makes me feel like I made the right choice.
And as I promised, Someone Else’s Movie isn’t going anywhere; this week’s episode dropped right on schedule, and it’s filled with pure joy as Kristin Booth steps up for Rob Reiner’s The Princess Bride, a movie that is just as charming, sweet and weird as it was when we first encountered it 35 years ago.
Which, amazingly enough, was right around the time I started reviewing movies in newspapers, bringing everything full circle. Sometimes things just line up, you know?
Anyway, give it a listen. You can subscribe at all the usual spots — Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher — or download it directly from the web. Kristin’s great and the movie’s a delight. Take some time to feel good this week.
