it's a thrill being back on the lido.  it is a beautiful festival.  perfectly run.  always putting the films first.  the audiences are generous and true cinema fans.

today i finally get some rest.  it's been a crazy few days filled with press and screenings.  folks seem very supportive.

mickey and evan are here and it's been a thrill showing them off.

tomorrow i fly to toronto.  hopefully the hurricane doesn't make us miss the premier!  anyone have any idea when and if it'll hit toronto?

see you all in north america soon.

the boss

just emerged from the dust bowl of burning man. it was a pretty unique experience. the last day was my favorite. not because of the big burn, but because the playa turned into a giant dust bowl. you could stare directly at the sun and it looked like a slightly bright moon. my shitty point and shoot couldn't capture it...

off to venice on wednesday. but i wanted to just share with you all the other music news i talked about in the past post. bruce springsteen wrote a beautiful original song for the closing the film. called THE WRESTLER it is a wonderful acoustic piece. makes me choke up every time i hear it. he really captured the spirit of the film and mickey's character in the piece.
