Tim Ryan, in line for All the King's Men

In the Queue: Tim Ryan

Sure, there may be celebrities everywhere, but often the most interesting people you meet at the Toronto International Film Festival are standing in front of you in line.

Who: Tim Ryan, Editor: Rotten Tomatoes
From: Los Angeles, California
In Line For: All the King's Men
Years at the Festival: First Year!

What are you looking forward to for this year's festival?
There's a lot of stuff. Always interested in Werner Herzog, really interested in Little Children, heard a lot of good things about that. The Fountain, of course. I was interested in the Kurt Cobain documentary. One of the other things: I was really interested in Babel and Pan's Labyrinth and both of those didn't disappoint at all. I really liked both of those a lot.

Any other thoughts you have about the festival or Toronto?
I think one of the most fascinating things is that you sort of come across the border and you're like, woah! Here's this great North American city that's kind of forgotten: well, of course you think about it, but I didn't really have any idea of the size and the scale, it's just a happening place. And I think one of the things is that — it's sad to say but it's true — Canda sort of flies under the radar sometimes, there's a lot of American people that don't think north of the border that much, but then they're here and they're like, "ah this is great."

The festival itself too is pretty accessible. The press screenings have been pretty well planned, and the movies so far have been good. There hasn't been a single day where I've thought, "ah, today looks a little boring." It's been pretty solid all the way through.
