Tully on Tanner on Tanner

I shook Robert Altman's hand two hours ago.

Just got back from the "Tanner on Tanner" premiere and party. Have to say, I was skeptical going into it, but I was pleasantly surprised. It took a completely different approach than I would have predicted, but it worked nonetheless. In typical Altman fashion, this was as much a commentary on the ridiculous outbreak of "documentaries" as it was on the ridiculousness of the political process itself. Another fine achievement.

At the after-party, I avoided the free liquor once again--seriously, I'm waiting to wake up from this dream, but for now I am LOVING feeling stable, healthy, and (relatively) comfortable within my own skin--and had a good time. As I said before, I was introduced to Mr. Altman before I left and I stammered through something about how it was darker than I had expected, but I really enjoyed the new series.

Tomorrow morning is another master/personal hero: Mike Leigh. I plan on giving a more thorough report about NYFF films later in the week, but will briefly say that Saturday night's "Undertow" screening and after-party, and especially the after-after-party, will be remembered for a long time to come. Good fuckin' times!
