This is the view from my hotel window:
I am currently at the Pesaro Film Festival, Italy, which is devoting a (don't laugh) focus on all my movies.
One of the first things I heard when I arrived this morning was a booming greeting from the German film critic Olaf Moller:"Lips to Lips is a Brechtian masterpiece!"
The very first film festival I attended (Hawaii in 2000) also had a great view, if I recall. There are 2 other Malaysians here with me and we travel by bicycle! (It's been at least a decade for me but it's true, you never forget!).
Tomorrow I will attend two of my screenings and answer questions. A special highlight is the Friday night world premiere of Susuk. I hope a special guest of the festival, Italian frightmeister Dario Argento, can turn up.
Another highlight would be the fact that I was just asked, over a great pasta lunch, whether I wanted to guest-DJ the festival closing party together with Argento's composer! It didn't take long for me to say Si.
