Baggage Claimant

Francois and friends, doing god's workThis isn’t the first time I’ve had luggage go missing during an international flight, but it’s certainly the longest it’s taken for the airline to find and deliver said luggage. Like, fifty-nine hours and counting. And what I’m counting is the dwindling number of my remaining clothes.

Aaaanyway. I’m sure my fourteenth call to Air Canada’s outsourced telephone bank will bring me a little closer to resolving this endless nightmare. In the meantime, here’s my latest Sympatico/MSN gallery, running down nine great movies about moviemaking that you’ll be much better off seeing instead of “What Just Happened?” and “Zack and Miri Make a Porno”.

Oh, and here’s Friday’s NOW Daily piece about Cinematheque Ontario’s new Nagisa Oshima retrospective, which somehow slipped my mind when I was building the other day’s post. Probably because I was worrying about my missing pants.

  1. Great list! So many favorites on it…”Well that happened”, “Let me tell you why I’m UNIQUELY qualified”, etc. Makes me want to check out the couple I haven’t seen.

  2. I’ve never understood the popularity of Get Shorty. I’ve never thought much of it. I’d substitute Barton Fink.

    Or maybe In the Soup, that other low-budget indie about the making of a low-budget indie that Steve Buscemi made a couple years prior to Living in Oblivion.
