The highlight social event of the fest, so far: the annual Sony Pictures Classics dinner last night. I sat with the Dardenne Brothers, which was a real treat, and right near Wong Kar Wai. As everyone around me has already heard, I witnessed him taking off his sunglasses while reading the menu. WKW is pictured here chatting with Jonathan Demme. It was also great to catch up with some other terrific SPC filmmakers, including friends Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden (“Sugar”) and Charlie Kaufman (“Synecdoche, New York”).
