Wavelengths, Midnight Madness, and Real-to-Reel Announced

It's safe to assume that most of the TIFF talk today will revolve around the Midnight Madness lineup and the probability of Megan Fox and Diablo Cody showing up to present Jennifer's Body. So is it weird that I'm much more excited by the prospect of seeing Ben Russell's first feature-length film, Let Each One Go Where He May? The Wavelengths program isn't short on names this year: Snow, Gehr, Godard, Apitchatpong, Straub, Farocki, Jennings, . . . Wow.

Press releases:

Also, it looks like Drew Barrymore's roller derby movie Whip It! has been unoffically confirmed in the entry for Bitch Slap (http://tiff.net/filmsandschedules/films/bitchslap): "Zoe Bell ... can be seen at this year’s Festival as a roller derby hellcat in Drew Barrymore’s Whip It!"

There's a similar slip in the writeup about Apitchatpong's short film in the Wavelengths program: "(see also his single-channel installation Phantoms of Nabua, presented as part of Future Projections)"

L'Enfer de Henri-Georges Clouzot sounds like a must-see.

No, Darren, it is not weird.

I just finished watching Ben's film all the way through.

Lord have mercy, is it good.

I have to say that I'm pretty psyched for the docs...Just the titles sound intriguing.

Don't know much about the non-sequel, non-Diablo Midnight Madness entries - I loved [rec], but I figure the sequel will be available fairly soon after the fest. Ong-Bak 2 sounds like great fight scenes broken up by a really, really awful storyline. Kinda like the first one.

And that Wavelengths 4 program does sound pretty interesting.

Dammit, I need more tickets...
