Ringing in Columbus Day in Columbus Circle probably would have been more exciting were the holiday not most notable for celebrating a mass murderer of Native Americans and a universally reviled Sopranos episode. Luckily, the party had nothing to with the holiday (though paramount classics buzz was overpowered by who-has-the-day-off buzz). We were at the Stone Rose for Kodak’s closing night celebration for (an impressive) NYFF and Michael Haneke’s Cache. The smooth classiness of the guests and locale were a welcome change from the fun-but-crowded hijinks of Thursday’s Killer Films celebration; even though both parties were filled with many of the same people, the different vibes made each unique. So, party planners out there – I think more uptown venues should be explored. Just because the NYFF is over, we don’t have to wait till March to have an event above 28th street.
