I'm back in New York after five hectic days at the Chicago International Film Festival. The Festival is still going strong until October 20, and whilst I really wish I could have stayed in town longer, Joe Swanberg will continue keeping his diary for us. And as I was too busy the past few days festivaling to actually write anything, I still have lots to post about – from party gossip to the details on Peirce Brosnan's disasterous post-Bond venture – so keep your eyes peeled. Below you'll find a quick guide to what we've already covered – and don't forget about our recent coverage of NYFF and Fantastic Fest as well.
