30 ANTICIPATED FILMS AND TELLURIDE
Business Insider has posted a story that focuses on 30 films that they think are the most anticipated films for the fall season. Among them are films that I have had on my TFF #44 radar:
Battle of the Sexes
Blade Runner 2049
Call Me By Your Name
Untitled Paul Thomas Anderson Film (Phantom Thread)
Here's the link to the complete article.

The Dayton/Faris film Battle of the Sexes has a lot of potential TFF heat this last couple of weeks. Last Friday the film was at the #4 spot on my second edition of Ten Bets for 2017.
In the midst of the heat, I stumbled across this story from Entertainment Weekly in which Emma Stone, who plays Billie Jean King in the film, suggests that there are parallels between the film and our current social status.
Check out that story from EW here.
That's it for Monday. And a warning here. Tuesday's post is likely to hit later in the morning than normal. Don't panic...just got to drive home.
