radio daze — heads up!

I will be appearing on the CBC Radio show BC Almanac this Friday — around 1:30pm PST — to talk about the Oscars.

Fortunately, I have managed to see just about all the nominated feature films; the two remaining exceptions are:

  1. Curse of the Golden Flower (nominated for costume design; it has already left Vancouver)
  2. After the Wedding (nominated for foreign language film; it has not come to Vancouver yet)

I have also seen three of the five nominated animated shorts, but I have not seen any of the live-action or documentary shorts.

Now I just have to find me a babysitter for that afternoon.

FEB 23 UPDATE: For a limited time only, you can hear the chat via the RealAudio file here, beginning around the 26-minute mark.

    Strangely, the foreign-language category is the only one in which I’ve seen all nominated films. After the Wedding is my favourite of the five (I saw it at the Toronto festival), though I expect The Lives of Others to win, or failing that, Pan’s Labyrinth.

    Somewhat off-topic I have a question for you; it’s a little random but I thought you might be a good person to ask.

    What does the title of A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints allude to? Is it a famous book for kids about saints? And if so, from what era? It kind of rings a bell and has been bugging me.
