OK, so Daniel Radcliffe is really playing the younger version of Jon Hamm in "A Young Doctor's Notebook" - an adaptation of the short stories of Mikhail Bulgakov, heading to British TV in December. But hey - it's not December yet! So for those who prefer to see this as a bizarre and apparently not very comfortable bathroom liaison between the boy wizard and the advertising supremo, your moment has come.

Sally Potter is nothing if not original. She made her name writing and directing “Orlando” - an adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s novel, previously considered unfilmable due to its 400-year timespan and protagonist who changes gender at will.

So we know: The Iceland stuff is getting annoying. You get it, we're in Iceland and Bjork and Dario Argento are here too. But we capped off our trip to the Reykjavik International Film Festival with a few hours at what is truly one of the most glorious tourist attractions in the world: The Blue Lagoon.

And while we're on the subject of gay rights... I spent the past week in Iceland, where the Prime Minister, Johanna Sigurdardottir, is the world's first openly lesbian head of government. Since then, I've learned that Belgium is run by openly gay Prime Minister Elio de Rupo, making it the first country in the world to have an openly gay person as long term national leader (Johanna Sigurdardottir serves under a president). As Elio di Rupo said when he first came out, "I'm gay. So what?". But at the same time, it's a significant first which I can't see being replicated in the UK or US any time soon - and having previously not been aware of either, it felt like trivia worth sharing.

You'd be forgiven for not knowing that Sally Field had a gay son - she's never spoken about it before, presumably because it's none of anyone's business.

Dario Argento wasn't the only big winner at the Reykjavik International Film Festival. Matt Knott, contributor to both Indiewire and this blog, and a great partner in crime since we met at the most glorious film festival of all time (I'd also say he's an excellent filmmaker -- which is he -- but it might sound biased), won the festival's Golden Egg for best short film:

Arguably it is stretching the bounds of this column to claim Orlando, the eponymous protagonist of Sally Potter’s 1992 film, as a Heroine of Cinema.
