    Rob Zombie on Going for Broke With 'Lords of Salem' and Why Making a Third 'Halloween' Would Be "Masochistic"

    Rob Zombie impressed many (ourselves included) with his grisly and demented sophomore effort, "The Devil's Rejects," only to betray many admirers of that film with his tepid stab at the "Halloween" franchise. After helming the 2009 sequel to that reboot, new film "The Lo...

    TIFF Capsule Review: 'Just the Wind'

    After making the creepy sci-fi love story “Womb” with Eva Green in English, Hungarian director Benedek “Bence” Fliegauf returns to his home country and a much more realistic register with “Just the Wind.” Inspired by true events that occurred a couple of years ago, the film looks at the last day of a Romany family — composed of a mother (Katalin Toldi), her adolescent daughter (Gyongyi Lendvai) and her younger brother (Lajos Sarkany) — in a country where casual racism and verbal hatred of the Gypsy community have become such an accepted part of life that no one, not even the police and, to an...

    TIFF Capsule Review: 'As If We Were Catching a Cobra'

    The relationship between the Islamic world and newspaper cartoons has been a hot international topic ever since the Danish newspaper Jyllandss-Posten published cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed in 2009. Strangely, Paris-based Syrian director Hala Alabdalla chooses not to mention this incident in her documentary praising the work of caricature artists in Egypt and Syria. Yet she seems to have trouble cutting anything else out. It’s almost unfortunate for Alabdalla that the Arab Spring took place while she was in production, as it causes the director to lose focus on the subject at hand. While most of the interviews are at times ...
