Women and Men (and Meat)

1912507_728958173828714_971535015232984633_nToday is a Wednesday, so of course this evening I’ll be down at Harbourfront to introduce this week’s Free Flicks selection — Desk Set, the classic Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy battle-of-the-sexes comedy famously co-written by Nora Ephron’s parents. We start at 9 pm. It’s free! It’s by the water! My special guest will be National Post style writer and film critic Nathalie Atkinson! What else do you want from life?

Well, if you’re in a more modernist/minimalist frame of mind, you might consider Frank V. Ross’ Tiger Tail in Blue, an American indie making its Canadian premiere at Camera, also tonight at 9 pm. It’s the latest presentation by the guys at MDFF and The Seventh Art, who’ve kindly asked me to moderate the post-screening Q&A. So that’ll be nice, too. It’s not free, but the first 30 people pay just eight bucks; surely that’s a reasonable investment.

Oh, and one other thing : NOW asked me to write something about a restaurant that’s meaningful to me, so I wrote this thing here about Caplansky’s, which fits the bill nicely. Do enjoy.
