The craft of acting is based on the performer’s ability to transform. An actor renounces to his own personality to inhabit the character’s skin. After watching Dallas Buyers Club, it is hard to think of any performances this year that exemplify that basic principle of the dramatic craft better than those in Jean-Marc Vallée’s latest work

Healing is a process more viable for the physical body than for the always-restless memory. Scars and wounds vanish into the past to be replaced by new skin, yet always leaving a mark. As minimal as that trace may be it becomes a permanent record of the pain endured. The size is correlated to that of the injury itself, some being naturally greater than others.

Late as usual. People are attending MIPCOM in Cannes and in November AFM in Santa Monica, and I’m only now getting around to writing about my own private Toronto.

Occasionally I chose films my friends were going to and that happened when my time was not demanding other things be done.
