  1. Okay! Gala premiere of “Life Without Principle” in Toronto, I am SO there!!! If you guys want early reviews on your show, I’m winking right at you guys. I’ll probably make an exception to my TIFF ruling of watching one film per filmfest and catch a screening of “A Simple Life”.

  2. yeah, i checked the schedule for “life without principles” and the gala premiere is gonna be at the elgin theatre. that’s the problem. i’ve had a terrible experience at the elgin last year when i came to see “legend of the fist: the return of chen zhen”. the seats were uncomfortable. the screen was small. it just wasn’t the perfect spot for a movie viewing. but since johnnie to is gonna be there, it looks like i will have to go through the elgin again.
