TIFF 2008: Walkout Count - 1

So far I've only walked out of one film, Los Paranoicos / The Paranoids. This movie was a little too self-reflexive for me with its hapless protagonist working on a script during his kooky life. After about twenty minutes I started ignoring the subtitles to see if I could keep up with the dialogue based on my knowledge of Spanish. After ten more minutes, even that bored me. I doubt much more happened in the film.

happily, I traded in a ticket to said film hours before reading your review...

too bad, the film is excellent and the rest of the people in the theatre seemed to love it, especially the ending. if you would have stayed for the q&a also with the director you would have understood everything a lot better too.

You saw it at a different screening. There are no introductions / Q&A for P/I screenings.

But, there were plenty of walk outs in mine. :)
