It's not for me to judge how a world premiere should be held, or where. And if I'm there, and take at least one photo that I'm willing to upload... then I suppose there's a journal to be written. About that one photo. (Which, ironically or perhaps fittingly in this case, is not a very good photo.)
So, this was a World Premiere. It really was.
That said, I don't want to mention the name of the movie having its World Premiere because I don't think I should do a better job of promoting their film (...blurriness of the photo notwithstanding) than they did. So I won't.
Here's how it went down, from a car door to a hotel entrance:
So... that was the end result of an uncharacteristic 3 hours of optimism from me, and a World Premiere from the organisers.
I doubt I'll allow such an error on my part to be repeated. Normal cynical, rational behaviour is expected to resume shortly.
Until next time!
