Early November has been a highlight of my year for as long as the @AFI has been doing their film festival in Hollywood. They posted the schedule today, and as usual there's too much to see. I have a 9-5 job now. So I can't do those four-movie days like I used to. I'll sadly miss: CAROL, THE FORBIDDEN ROOM, DHEEPAN & MEDITERRANEA.
