Q What do you want to see most at the festival?
A I try to look for a story that may be interesting but might not get a theatrical release. The one I just bought was for Che (Part 1).
Q So do you have tickets for Part 2 as well?
A I guess I have to. I don’t know, though; tickets are pretty expensive.
Q How did you pick the movies this year?
A Every year I’ve done it, I’ve just winged it last minute, which isn’t the way to go. A friend mentioned Che, and I’m a big fan of Che and what he’s done.
Q How many times have you been to the festival?
A I’ve been going for the last three years.
Q Do you have any tips for TIFF rookies?
A Do your research, for sure. It can be very complicated, and you really do have to schedule it out for yourself. So give yourself time to plan ahead.
Q Favourite director?
A Atom Egoyan. I’m a fan of his, especially his being a Canadian director.
Q Favourite movie of all time?
A Jurassic Park, to be honest, but I don’t know if that’s a good one. I just love dinosaurs.
Q What’s your favourite dinosaur, then?
A The triceratops, because no one else likes him. Maybe it’s the three horns.
Q Who is the most overrated actor working today?
A The funny guy, tall, ’70s Show … Ashton Kutcher! That guy, big time.
Q And the most underrated?
A I’m not sure if he’s still underrated, but I think Ryan Gosling is so talented, and I look up to him as an actor.
Q Do you read film critics?
A Not so much in the paper, but I really like watching Reel to Real [with Geoff Pevere and Richard Crouse; now cancelled] on Rogers.
Q If you were invisible, which celebrity would you stalk?
A Brad Pitt or George Clooney, to see what they are like just doing their own thing.
Q If you could be any movie character in real life who would it be?
A One of the dudes from Reservoir Dogs.
