My CIFF Saturday by the Numbers

March 23rd, 2009

Not that I’m keeping track or anything… but here are some interesting totals RE the films I saw on the first Saturday of the 33rd CIFF (mind you, I’m not complaining about any of these - it’s just an interesting factoid):

Number of films watched: 7 (beginning with the 9:15 a.m. screening of La Belle Personne and ending with Tokyo at Midnight)

Films showing men’s naked bums: 4 & men at the urinal: 3 (funny, I saw a lot more naked men than women this weekend - in the US it’s usually the other way around)

Movies with vomiting: 4

Times I saw marine life killed: 2 (of course, they were documentaries)

Features with big-time kissing scenes: 4

Movies in which at least one person smoked: 7 (that’s right, all of them - and it seems more remarkable somehow these days)

Sunday, Children of Invention scored nil on the above criteria (well, it is a family movie), as did Generation Rx.  I’ll let you know how the rest of the week turns out…
