IP Octavia. Boy did the Oscar documentary committee screw up in 1991 when they ignored both Paris is Burning and Madonna's Truth or Dare, two of the best docs of the entire decade. If you've never seen Paris... put it on your queues immediately.

In regards to Cannes... I am not good with time zone issues. Every time I hear a story from Cannes I feel as if I've been sucked into a calendrical black hole in which no days of the month or time zones exist. Even clocks and hours have been eradicated. Everything is happening all at once and not at all since it's far far away. I totally don't know what day it is anymore and I'm not even there. I can't imagine how crazy it is in the heart of it. This is a long way of saying I'll address the film festival again tomorrow. Today has been... weird.

A Charlie Kauffman TV series could be really awesome - Twin Peaks-esque perhaps.

That's what I always think (and hope for) whenever a successful filmmaker creates a TV show. I don't think that happens often though...

Faye Wong's comeback is due to her having spent half her retirement fund on her second daughter's operation for a cleft lip in the United States.
She feels that she can earn more money than her actor husband.
