    Telluride XL Day Five: 'Nebraska,' 'Gravity,' 'Prisoners' and a Toast to the 40th Anniversary Fest

    I try not to beat myself up during a film festival. I try to adopt the Zen-like mantra of "wherever you are is the place you're supposed to be." Choosing one movie over another is not a life-or-death situation, and eventually one can usually see anything one wants.
