It was a busy weekend for me at the Toronto Film Festival, to the point that I haven't had much time to really write about anything I've seen. But I did have to share, in photos, the totally surreal experience of seeing Morgan Spurlock's miserably titled but very enjoyable new documentary Comic Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope. I've barely recovered from attending San Diego Comic Con back in July, but heading up to the film's premiere I was greeted by the sight of not just Storm Troopers on the street, but a row of costumed heroes on the stairs going up to the theater. These look just like photos from Comic Con I've taken many times, but I can't tell you how weird it feels to see it in a new context, like showing up at a Fourth of July barbecue attended by Santa Claus.
