    So any Torontonians going to the screening of Videodrome tomorrow? There was a screening tonight at 9:15 and another tomorrow at 9:30. Cronenberg introduces the film, followed by a Q&A after the screening.

    I went to the screening tonight and it was fucking awesome. The print was a little beaten up, but it was interesting to hear Cronenberg talk about the production, reception, inspiration and casting for Videodrome. Another thing I never knew, but apparently Cronenberg hates watching his own films. He didn't sit in on the screening and said he hasn't seen Videodrome since 1982. He's a really funny guy, poking humor wherever he can and he was nice enough to sign autographs for people. Got him to sign my DVD of Videodrome.

    If anyone's in the area, there's another screening tomorrow night at 9:30. If you can, check it out. It's totally worth the admission price (only cost me $15).

    I don't know if I can make it tonight... dammit. I'll be thinking about it all day now.

    I think that the Lightbox will be showing a lot of good movies over the next few months. I'll have to keep an eye out.
