After gawking at the wonders of nature -- the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, the Valley of the Gods, and Monument Valley -- and no moving images, I was more than ready to immerse myself in celluloid once again. Once I arrived in town, I found myself wishing I’d thrown that Criterion boxed set of Sacha Guitry into my luggage. I’m not the Telluride regular I wish I was – the person that always seems to be next to me in the line-up that has been to every SHOW since 1974 – but I seem to remember that, even a few years ago, I never knew a thing until the little catalogues were passed out on Friday morning.
This year I get the Press Release at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday morning in my email inbox, and within seconds, it seems, there are links all over Facebook. I’m overwhelmed by the riches of the line-up. As usual, there are too many films, too little time, even as you imagine seeing everything.
