But seriously: While working the fest for three different publications, finishing a feature story I should have completed before leaving Houston, and reconnecting with old friends in the Great White North, I have been lax in my posting. Sorry about that. Hope to get back into the blogging groove over the next few days. In the meantime: Kudos to Anthony Breznican of USA for taking on one of the toughest interview subjects in showbiz -- Tommy Lee Jones -- and getting some blunt talk from the Oscar-winning actor about In the Valley of Elah, one of the very best films I saw at Toronto. The money quote: "There are many questions raised by the movie, but they all boil down to one big question, and that's the big question in front of everybody in the country... It's inescapable. It makes no sense to talk around it or avoid talking about it …
"That question is: To what extent are you engaged in a fraudulent war, you as an American citizen?"
