    TIFF Review: 'Black And White' Starring Kevin Costner, Octavia Spencer, Anthony Mackie, Gillian Jacobs And More

    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.

    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...

    TIFF Interview: Chris Rock Talks 'Top Five,' A Comedian's True Self & Fame As The New Cocaine

    There’s no question that Chris Rock is really f*cking funny. If you’ve witnessed his standup in person, you know it can be paralytically funny (I experienced it once and almost developed a hernia). But the comedian is also an accomplished writer/director who has made three feature-length films now, ...

    TIFF Review: ‘Samba’ Starring Omar Sy, Tahar Rahim & Charlotte Gainsbourg

    French directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano have been working side by side since the mid 2000s, but stormed into popularity with their 2011 hit “The Intouchables.” Breaking local box-office records with a story about a quadriplegic aristocrat and his impoverished caretaker, it appears that st...

    TIFF Review: 'St. Vincent' Starring Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts & Chris O'Dowd

    Imagine Herman Blume from "Rushmore" if he were even crankier, broke, drunker and even more irresponsible, and that's Vincent, played with ease by Bill Murray. Taking the lead in "St. Vincent," it seems like the role he's been gearing up to play ever since his career was given an energy boost in Wes...

    TIFF Review: Dan Gilroy’s ‘Nightcrawler’ Starring Jake Gyllenhaal & Rene Russo

    The best thing to ever happen to Jake Gyllenhaal’s career is “Prince of Persia.” A blockbuster flop, following years of auditioning for big budget projects, the sting of ‘Persia’ made the young actor finally realize Hollywood was trying to square peg him into cookie-cutter leading man roles. He almo...

    TIFF Review: ‘The Drop’ Starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace & James Gandolfini

    If the imagined stereotype of modern-day Brooklyn is bearded hipsters buying vinyl in Williamsburg, casually pushing Bugaboos down the street and attending trendy brunches, then those tourists have never been to the Brooklyn of "The Drop," a tucked-away corner of the five boroughs where everything b...
