Good Tuesday Everyone...
GOODBYE TELLURIDE #41
Sad to say, but The Telluride Film Festival has closed its doors for another year. Start the countdown to TFF #42!
AND NOW THE DANCE CALLED OSCAR
Regular readers of this space know that now that the festival has concluded that two things are about to happen. I'll go back to the regular twice a week publication schedule (Mondays and Thursdays) unless something special warrants a special post AND the focus of the blog shifts from the films that we puzzled about for six months to the actual films that played and their prospects for the upcoming awards season.
I know that plenty of TFFers couldn't care less about this or that Oscar prospect. I completely understand that but I do enjoy the awards season and how those films that showed at The SHOW will fare. As such, I have included a number of pieces of the "at first blush" variety from a number of the best Oscar/Awards thinkers and writers in the business. Enjoy!

THE PEOPLE'S TELLURIDE
The ratings from readers have begun to come in and this is your reminder to be a part of the annual rating compilation of the films you saw at Telluride. Please drop me a line with your rating of each of the films you saw using a 0-5 scale with "0" for the atrocious and "5" for the sublime. Send them to me via Twitter @Gort2 or email: email@example.com or as a comment to this post. I'll collate them and publish the results in the next week or so. It's fun!
