    TIFF Review: ‘Elephant Song' Starring Xavier Dolan, Bruce Greenwood & Catherine Keener

    Directing and releasing five films across the last four years, with three of them premiering at Cannes, and another at Venice, you might understand why Xavier Dolan might not have time to return phone calls. And given the limited stateside distribution of his films, it might also be easy to forget t...

    TIFF Review: Hal Hartley's 'Ned Rifle' Starring Liam Aiken, Aubrey Plaza, Martin Donovan, Parker Posey & More

    By this point, you're either a Hal Hartley devotee, or you're not. The fiercely independent filmmaker established his voice on films like "Trust," "Flirt," and "The Unbelievable Truth," and for most of his career, stayed far away from the studio system (2001's underrated "No Such Thing" being an exc...

    TIFF Review: ‘X + Y’ Starring Asa Butterfield, Rafe Spall & Sally Hawkins

    There’s something impossibly charming about Morgan Matthews’ “ X+Y,” his debut as a fictional feature-length narrative director.

    TIFF Review: Chris Evans' Directorial Debut 'Before We Go' Co-Starring Alice Eve

    The plight of the actor-turned-director is an unpredictable one.

    TIFF Review: ‘Boychoir’ Starring Dustin Hoffman, Kathy Bates, Debra Winger & Josh Lucas

    Screenwriter Ben Ripley has followed up his time-traveling thriller “Source Code” in a most unpredictable way. From an adrenaline-fueled terrorist atmosphere to the private confines of a boy’s choir school, Ripley’s rather plainly titled “Boychoir” bursts with harmony and euphoric melody thanks to a...

    Julianne Moore Is Back in the Oscar Game

    Focus World's abrupt 2015 placement of Cronenberg's "Maps to the Stars" isn't keeping Cannes Best Actress winner Julianne Moore out of the Oscar game. She's back in the races with "Still Alice," Sony Pictures Classics' first TIFF buy and an awards usher for Moore, who plays a professor beset by earl...
