Not Coming Soon to a Theater Near You…

The Toronto Film Festival gave liberals a lesson in cause and effect this year.

Cause: Politics takes spotlight at Toronto film festival

Political and religious conflict and humanitarian crisis were portrayed in several movies at the Toronto film festival on Sunday including “Elizabeth: The Golden Age” that premieres on Sunday night.

Effect: Toronto film festival fails to excite buyers

…The festival, heavy this year with political films, saw a mass exodus of buyers beginning Tuesday, the anniversary of September 11. The events of September 11 brought Toronto to a halt six years ago, but they weren’t even mentioned this week. Instead, it was the weak sales climate that most concerned attendees.

“A lot of people wasted a lot of money coming up here,” said a studio executive who hadn’t acquired any Toronto features. “The available films were very disappointing. It was the weakest festival in my long memory.”

Not even a crockumentary from Michael Moore, darling of the liberal left, could generate interest.

The screening was held in a theater with a capacity of about 580. I arrived very early, fearing the thing might be crowded — but I’d be surprised if there were 100 people there, maybe even as few as 50. Is Moore losing some of his magic with the festival-going press, which he could always count on for a reasonable amount of support, or at least some copy? I could almost hear tumbleweeds blowing through that theater

I guess liberal propaganda just doesn’t sell like it used to.
