The Maine International Film Festival starts in a couple of weeks, and for the first time in about three years, I'll actually be free to go. The movie I'm looking forward to the most? THE TEN.
This year's mid-life achievement award is going to Bud Cort of HAROLD AND MAUDE fame. Despite HAROLD, which is one of the best love stories ever told - too bad it has that annoying Cat Stevens soundtrack, Cort is a pretty disappointing choice considering previous receipients include Jonathan Demme and fucking Terrance Malick! They get Malick to come out of whatever cave he hides in to accept an award and the best they can do this year is Bud Cort? Oh well.
