First Cancon

When I watch the sex scenes in Year of the Carnivore I feel a bit like when I watch a conversation in The Office. I’m uncomfortable because everything takes as long as it does during ‘actual’ coitus. The opening of a condom and the application to the phallus is awkward, graceless and awesome.

Cristin Milioti was quirky in a kind of Amelie-esque performance. The detail her character put into her department store detective costumes reminded me of the way I feel sometimes, as I dress for work – I am creating a facade based on what is expected of me.

Not as good at last year’s first film – $9.99 – but not everyone can have stop-motion sex.

This is not an official TIFF site. If it was I would not have to wait in so many lineups with my festival knapsack full of water, snacks, sunscreen and other supplies.
