    TIFF Review: Kevin Smith's Horror Story 'Tusk,' Starring Justin Long, Michael Parks & Johnny Depp

    It's might be hard to grasp, given how much of his movies are composed of inactive camerawork and marginal production design, just how much of a true filmmaker Kevin Smith really is. He's a storyteller at heart. While some of his more recent material has been marginal, this is a man whose 1994 debut...

    TIFF Review: Susanne Bier’s 'A Second Chance' Featuring ‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

    The whirlwind of festival scheduling can, at times, align the most unexpectedly parallel screenings back-to-back. This is what happened today, when we saw one Danish female filmmaker’s new film and followed it with another Danish female filmmaker’s new film. Lone Schrefig dug into dark British tradi...

    TIFF Review: Noah Baumbach's 'While We're Young' Starring Ben Stiller, Naomi Watts, Adam Driver & Amanda Seyfried

    It's too bad Judd Apatow has already taken the title "This Is 40" because that's the perfect description of Noah Baumbach's "While We're Young." The writer/director has previously explored midlife crisis, malaise and discontent in efforts like "Margot At The Wedding" and "Greenberg," but his latest ...

    TIFF Review: François Ozon’s 'The New Girlfriend' Starring Romain Duris & Anaïs Demoustier

    Tone has always been an issue for François Ozon, the hit-or-miss filmmaker behind “Swimming Pool,” “In the House,” “8 Women” and “Young and Beautiful.” His work can be playful and dark, comical and serious, silly and harsh, often at the same time. When it works, as in “Swimming Pool” and the underra...

    TIFF Review: Lone Scherfig's 'The Riot Club' With Sam Claflin, Max Irons, Jessica Brown Findlay & More

    Remember “An Education”? The 2009 movie that dashed for Oscar glory, made Carey Mulligan into a star, gracefully walked the tightrope of suspense and coming-of-age and showcased the directing talents of Danish provocateur-esse Lone Scherfig? If you liked it as much as some of us with The Playlist di...

    It was almost a decade ago when Paul Haggis' "Crash" premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and began its journey to the Academy Awards, where it would win three statues, including the Oscar for Best Picture. The backlash was swift, with the intervening years (somewhat unfairly) paint...

    TIFF Review: Jason Reitman's 'Men, Women & Children' Starring Adam Sandler, Ansel Elgort, Jennifer Garner & More

    In 2010, a South Korean couple was arrested for starving their three-month-old daughter to death, neglecting her as they hit internet cafés to play an online game. It's a story referenced in "Men, Women & Children" by Jennifer Garner's hypervigilant, tech-wary Mom to other parents in the neighborhoo...

    TIFF Review: Mia Hansen-Løve’s French DJ Drama ‘Eden’ With Greta Gerwig & Brady Corbet

    Her career as a director may still be considered short, but Mia Hansen-Løve already has a reputation for capturing the intimacy of relationships. This year, she’s following up 2011’s festival darling “Goodbye First Love” with a much more personal story, intimate in a wholly different way than her pr...
