    Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal In Surprising 'Prisoners'

    TIFF Review: 'Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon' Is An Entertaining & Moving Doc About The Legendary Agent

    It's probably safe to say that it's no mere coincidence that the subtitle of "Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon" recalls "Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy." Both men—one real, one fictional—are products of the '70s, a decade when drugs and women were easy, and outrageous behavior was routi...

    TIFF 2013 Review: Jahmil Qubeka's Thriller 'Of Good Report' Brands Him A Director To Watch

    The reasons for its controversial initial banning in the filmmaker's native South Africa, are easily identified, although for those who've been exposed to far more gratuitous displays of sexuality and violence on screen (there's an abundance of that here in the USA), Jahmil X.T.
