I know you’ve seen it before but I just want to start here by describing for you what it’s like on a red carpet, because it’s important to understand the contrast.

I have a ticket tonight to Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape Of Water which just won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival this weekend and if I can be released from the red carpet I’m covering before 930pm, I’ll be able to see how it holds up against my favourite film, not only of TIFF, but of the year so far – Call Me By Your Name. Full Story
