M-L's occasional ramblings.

I know it's been mentioned in other blogs, but if you're in Toronto in the next couple of weeks, you should check out the Warhol exhibit at the AGO. The exhibit is guest-curated by David Cronenberg. This means that you listen to Cronenberg's commentary from a handheld museum listening device as you walk through the exhibit at your own pace. It is very, very interesting and deserves much props, even if you have no interest in Warhol or Cronenberg. Cronenberg's anecdotes and discussion are well worth the admission price. It sounds corny but I felt like he was giving me a personal tour. It's obvious he is a huge fan and that Warhol has influenced his film making. I'm thinking of the "Disasters" especially. This exhibit is probably the best thing I've seen at the AGO.
