TIFF 2010: LA VIDA ÚTIL (A USEFUL LIFE, 2010)—The MUBI Interview With Federico Veiroj

Federico Veiroj's A Useful Life was the first film at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival I heard applauded at its press screening, confirming—as Diana Sanchez had written in her program capsule—that "for anyone who loves cinema in its purest form, this film will be a revelation."

At an admirably unassuming 66 minutes, it will be challenging to fit A Useful Life into any model of theatrical distribution and it might end up being primarily a festival darling; in which case, I strongly encourage anyone in love with cinema not to miss the opportunity to watch this droll film at any festival where it's programmed.

My thanks to Danny Kasman and
MUBI for optioning my conversation with the charmingly affable Veiroj.
