    Toronto Review: Why 'Joe' Is a Comeback For Both Nicolas Cage and David Gordon Green

    A dozen years ago, Nicolas Cage was still considered a serious actor and David Gordon Green was considered a promising new filmmaker.

    TIFF Review: Eli Roth's Cannibal Horror Tale 'The Green Inferno'

    When Eli Roth first appeared on the scene a decade ago, he looked like he might just be the savior the horror genre was looking for. A wave of hype preceded his debut "Cabin Fever," thanks to a raucous reception at TIFF Midnight Madness, a seal of approval from David Lynch and from Roth himself, who...

    TIFF Review: 'Hateship Loveship' Starring Kristin Wiig, Guy Pearce, Hailee Steinfeld & More

    Following the smash success of "Bridesmaids," Kristen Wiig has actively subverted the obvious expectations of the career choices that would follow a hit film.

    Toronto Review: Daniel Radcliffe And Zoe Kazan Share Fine Chemistry In 'The F Word,' But the Jokes Aren't So Lucky

    Canadian director Michael Dowse's movies tend to revolve around vulgar, garrulous individuals driven to ridiculous extremes, from the hotheaded hockey player in 2011's "Goon" to the headbangers at the center of "Fubar" and "Fubar II."

    TIFF Review: 'Standing Aside, Watching'

    The heroine’s name is Antigone, but the myths at work in “Standing Aside, Watching,” are those of the American western, a western one whose heroine has more cojones than a dozen Gary Coopers. The film? A model of urgent, contemporary storytelling by Greek director Yorgos Servetas, with a sometimes s...

    Toronto Review: 'Therese,' Starring Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaac and Jessica Lange, Fails On Every Level

    Give a bunch of American actors -- Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaac and Jessica Lange -- a classic Parisian text and they implausibly turn out their best British accents.
