So to say that the winners of the 2012 edition of Montreal's annual Festival des Filmes du Monde /World Film Festival were lost in the ensuing mainstream media's wildly hysterical "chickenlittling" cacophony may be similar to comparing "eastwooding" to serious political debate, that it is a mumbling and unclear understatement of the facts.
So by the miracle of the intranet DJ rushes to the scene to correct this unfair balance in that star crossed universe that is Hollywood.
