“During the opening days here in Toronto, the biggest topic of conversation wasn’t the movies. It was that the up escalator at the primary press venue, the Scotiabank Theatre, wasn’t working. Every time you walked into this multiplex, you had to climb 75 steep stairs just to get to your screening. If you think film critics gripe about movies, you should have heard them on having to make like mountain goats.”
John Powers, Vogue.com‘s resident film critic, discusses the hardships faced at this year’s Toronto Film Festival.
