    TIFF 2010: Patricio Guzmán’s “Nostalgia for the Light”

    Chilean filmmaker Patricio Guzmán has based his entire career on the excavation of truth, whether it be personal or more importantly, national and political. Those familiar with his epic 1970s document The Battle of Chile or his more recent The Pinochet Case won’t be surprised that his latest film, the provocative and illuminating Nostalgia for the Light deals in part with the unending nightmare of his country’s past. But this eloquent, deeply felt cine-essay is something of a surprise in the way that it connects the thousands of murdered and disappeared Chileans from the era of Augusto Pinochet’s ruthless dictatorship to matters seemingly gr...

    Toronto Review | Afghan on the Lam: "Essential Killing"

    So little happens in Jerzy Skolimowski's "Essential Killing" that it barely exists as a movie. Instead, the story of an escaped Taliban fighter (Vincent Gallo) wandering through the forests of Europe meanders along as a succession of scenes. At times engrossing and not without palpable suspense, it ...

    The Emotional Q&A From Bell Lightbox Opener "Trigger"

    Emotions ran high in Toronto last night as the ten-years-in-the-making TIFF Bell Lightbox finally made its official debut as a screening venue. After a day long block party outside the building, a who's who of the city's film community gathered to witness Bruce MacDonald's "Trigger." Piers Handling noted the long list of Canadian cinematic talent associated with the film, from its director Bruce McDonald to its screenwriter Daniel MacIvor, to its cast that includes Molly Parker, Sarah Polley, Don McKellar, and Callum Keith Rennie. But the most notable person involved with "Trigger" is also the reason why last night's Lightbox debut was such...

    Eight Minutes In The Back of a Car With Mike Mills

    Here's the audio that goes with this interview with "Beginners" director Mike Mills, which took place in the back of a car while Mills was en route to a screening of the film... Mills is a charming guy, and has made a lovely little film in "Beginners." The film juggles chronologies as it details a pivotal period in the life of Oliver (Ewan McGregor), a man in his late thirties dealing with the death of his father (an endlessly charming Christopher Plummer). Through flashbacks, Mills shows the years leading up to Oliver's father's death - most notably in the fact that after Oliver's mother's death, his father decided to come out at age 75. ...

    Toronto Review | A Natural Museum In 3-D: Werner Herzog's "Cave of Forgotten Dreams"

    In recent years, Werner Herzog's sly observations on the ways the universe in wondrously strange documentaries such as "Grizzly Man" and "Encounters at the End of the World" have taken on cult status apart from his existing place in the history of German cinema. Viral videos contain uncanny imitatio...
