TIFF ’10: ‘Black Swan,’ here I come?

By Sean O’Connell I’m trying my best to meticulously plan out TIFF 2010. A fest this size easily can get away from you if you don’t stay disciplined. And I made it through Day One – a four-movie-in-three-venues day — with no hiccups, even though one venue changed at the last minute.

You roll with it.

Today started out on a bad first step, and I’m praying that’s not an omen. I didn’t get back from my back-to-back “Conviction” and “Never Let Me Go” screening until 11:30 last night. I stayed up to write, so I crashed somewhere around 1 a.m. Before passing out, I dialed down to the front desk and asked for a 6:30 a.m. wake-up call.

They called at 5:30 a.m.

I have never had that happen. What’s worse, I didn’t look at the clock until AFTER I’d gotten out of the shower. Fun.

So I’m up early. Which was my intention, as this morning is “Black Swan,” and I’m nervous enough about that one. It’s a hot title, and TIFF made it a “Press Priority” screening. That means muckity-mucks with more muck than me get first crack at seats. I wouldn’t be too pissed about not getting into “Black Swan” because there are screenings of “The King’s Speech” and “Inside Job” at the same time. Yeah, that’s how crazy stacked TIFF is this year. But those films start BEFORE “Swan,” so I’ll have to have a good idea if I’m in a great spot on the “Swan” line before I bail and try another film.

Such are the problems of TIFF.

So, I’m heading for Scotiabank. It’s two hours before “Black Swan” screens. With luck, I’ll have my opinion on Aronofsky’s ballet drama to share with y’all in four hours.

Wish me luck.
