The Toronto International Film Festival adds sixty new films to its previously announced titles, including titles in the Documentary, Midnight Madness, Vanguard, Kids and Cinematheque programs, as well as the ten films from Mumbai playing in City to City. Still not listed in the official line-up is Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master,” which reportedly has a slot. Count on Harvey Weinstein to seek yet another splashy headline after holding out for solo stories on Venice.
Among the films filling out the 2012 edition of TIFF are Martin McDonagh’s latest exploration of comedic violence, “Seven Psychopaths,” Don Coscarelli’s horror comedy “John Dies at the End,” starring Paul Giamatti, Norwegian director Eva Sørhaug’s murder exploration “90 Minutes” and Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s Mexico vacation thriller, “Here Comes the Devil.”
Docs include Alex Gibney’s Vatican expose “Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God,” Janet Tobias’ “No Place on Earth,” Matthew Cooke’s “How to Make Money Selling Drugs,” Marina Zenovich’s long-awaited sequel, “Roman Polanski: Odd Man Out,” and Dror Moreh’s look at the Israeli Secret Service, “The Gatekeepers,” which was just acquired by SPC.
Cannes debuts showing at Toronto include Ken Burns, David McMahon and Sarah Burns’ reexamination of what really happened to “The Central Park Five,” and Ben Wheatley’s must-see road trip gone wrong, “Sightseers.”
Restored classics playing in the new Cinematheque program include Alfred Hitchcock’s “Dail M for Murder,” Roman Polanski’s “Tess,” Larry Kent’s “The Bitter Ash” and Roberto Rossellini’s “Stromboli.”
