Aaaaalll right! Giggity giggity giggity! I'm too excited for Indiana Jones to do a real recap of yesterday. Like I said, I had to stay up until 3:30 in the morning to get them so I was a bit tired the next day. In fact, that day, which I believe is day four in my adventures, could be summed up in one word: frustration.
I got up to see an older Japanese film that was playing in one of the sidebar festivals. I stood in line for a while to see it and was impressed that the line was so long. I finally got settled into my seat only to discover that it was the same gloomy/creepy Turkish film that I saw the day before! Because they close the doors on all of these screenings, that pretty much ruined that time slot for movie watching.
I wandered around the market looking for folks, unable to find them. I will post a picture of the insanity that is the film market as soon as I find my USB cable. Updated- USB found. Imagine about 30 hallways like the two below. And this year is supposed to be a "quiet" one here:
I went home and got dressed up for the evening. Then the sky opened up and dumped rain on everyone, forcing me to spend an unreasonable amount of money on an umbrella.
I wandered some more, waiting for some friends to get out of a screening. We grabbed dinner and tried to get into some parties, where we were repeatedly denied access.
But I don't particularly care about all of that. Like I said, I get to see Indy. After tonight, though, I will be a bit more aggressive about the marketing of LOOP (which includes muscling my way into parties where I think the buyers might be hanging out).
Oh, and I also happened upon Woody Allen and his entourage being herded into their private cars after his screening. He was the only one I actually recognized, but Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, and Patricia Clarkson were apparently there. Again, photos are forthcoming (though I don't think they include any recognizable stars).
