Paging Dr. TIFF.

Congratulations to Jean-Marc Vallée, director of C.R.A.Z.Y., which won the Toronto-City Award for best Canadian feature at the TIFF yesterday... (Hey -- that's the one film I recommended you go see!) Boo to CP for describing the film as "a cinematic homage to the pop culture-saturated middle class of the 1970s." Whaaaat? Where did that line come from?

Oh, it comes from the TIFF's press release: "Vallée's wildly entertaining film is an ambitious and magical cinematic homage to the pop-culture-saturated middle class of the seventies." What a slightly condescending and totally inaccurate representation of what the film C.R.A.Z.Y. is...
