Today at Flavorpill, we scanned the list of movies accepted at the Venice Film Festival, and wished we could afford a ticket to go — specifically to finally see The Road. We swore to go out and buy a Brita after seeing these adorable adds asking people to use less bottled water. We were nostalgic for a time when having this birthday cake at our party would have made us the happiest person on earth. We were curious to see what Stephen Schwartz‘s newest project would sound like. We felt bad for Vladamir Nabokov, who is having his final novel published posthumously against his dying wishes. We checked out the trailer for Wes Anderson’s new film, The Fantastic Mr. Fox. We got excited that some original CSI vets may be returning to the show. And finally, we were amazed at the orchestra conducting talents of this child prodigy.
