For the second year in a row, I have pushed it to the limit with the Toronto International Film Festival. 10 days, 10 movies. This time, because of smarter scheduling, it wasn't so exhausting, although by the end of the first 3 days, I had seen 6 movies (3 in one day).
Twenty years ago this week, a Category 5 chainsaw called Hurricane Andrew cut a swath of ruin like no storm before it. More than 28,000 homes were destroyed, 107,000 damaged - a toll that made it the nation's costliest natural catastrophe until Katrina in 2005. Fifteen people were killed in Miami-Dade alone.
