It’s Kicking In

If he's buying, you're drinkingMy day is getting off to a slowish start, as I’m nursing a slight hangover from the “Eastern Promises” party last night. (On a related note, following Negro Modelo with prosecco is a really bad idea.)

Don’t worry, I’ll shake it off soon enough. Lots of stuff to do today — screenings of “Margot at the Wedding” and “Cleaner” and “Walk All Over Me”, and an interview with Craig Gillespie, whose “Lars and the Real Girl” is the best film I’ve seen at this year’s festival. Seriously, I said so in today’s Metro capsules.

I’ve been looking forward to this for weeks — and even more so since last week, when I saw Gillespie’s earlier effort, “Mr. Woodcock”, which is slouching onto the screen this Friday after a long time on New Line’s shelf, and is decidedly not one of the year’s best films.

I hope he doesn’t throw things at me when I ask about it …
