Suggested New Titles For The Toronto “S” Man Movies

Suggested New Titles For The Toronto "S" Man Movies

One the ongoing jokes at this year’s Toronto Film Festival is the constant confusion between three films with very similar titles: Tom Ford’s “A Single Man,” The Coens’ “A Serious Man” and Brian Koppelman and David Levien’s “Solitary Man.” All of them high profile (to varying degrees – the former two very much so, the latter not as much) and two of them big acquisition titles – myself and many colleagues have consistently mixed them up in conversation, occasionally throwing non-existent title “A Simple Man” in the mix for no apparent reason.

To avoid confusion in the future – especially if any of them end up on awards ballots – I suggest an easy switch for all three films. Just keep it basic:

A Gay Man:

A Jewish Man:

Dirty Old Man:
