THE LION KING is beautiful ... and completely pointless. So long as we keep shoving ourselves into theatres for the safe and familiar, though, Disney will be happy to feed our desire for maximum comfort and zero surprises. Enjoy!

Year after TIFF saw its chief depart, @VIFFest announces exec director Jacqueline Dupuis to step down after eight years. From my perch in T.O., VIFF's accomplished great things, including Future//Present, maybe the most exciting film program in Canada.

It's almost time: #TIFF19 to announce first slate of gala and special presentation films on July 23 (albeit by press release instead of typical media conference; this is a sorta continuation from last year, when planned opening presser was cancelled in wake of Danforth shooting).

Cooper's A STAR IS BORN looks, against perhaps all odds, pretty damn good (well, it will depend on your tolerance for Bradley Cooper in hats). Lady Gaga, in two minutes, seems like a movie star. This is a lock for #TIFF18 ... or it *should* be. #CinemaCon
