For old folkies, there is Todd Haynes’ I’m Not There, in which a starry cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale and Heath Ledger portray the many facets of Bob Dylan.

For old rockers, Murray Lerner has assembled his documentary Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who, which has the blessing of founding member Pete Townshend.

And, for old opera queens, there is Callas Assoluta, a new documentary by Philippe Kohly that looks at the life, music and fabulous gowns of legendary opera diva Maria Callas. Right after Toronto, the film will get simultaneous screenings at the Palais Garnier in Paris and Teatro alla Scala in Milan on Sept. 16 to mark the 30th anniversary of Callas’s death.

I’m sorry, but I’m not an “old opera queen”. At least not according to the definition of “opera queen” that I’ve read. Am I missing something? Is there another definition? Are they just trying to be witty? I can’t relate. Heck, I don’t even fit the “old” part. Or do I …? :-(

Read elsewhere: Strauss Oboe Concerto . . . It Rocks!

Now that I can relate to! :-)
