There were 255 movies in this year’s Toronto International Film Festival lineup, but only a handful of them will continue to generate conversations this fall, and just a fraction of that crowd will gain steam in Oscar season. That leaves us pondering a number of questions: With “The Shape of Water” winning the top prize at Venice and finding more fans at TIFF, does it have the edge on “Lady Bird”? How does “Darkest Hour” fit into this conversation, and could it topple the early momentum for “Dunkirk”? And what about all the movies we haven’t seen yet?
These are some of the topics tackled in the latest episode of Screen Talk, as co-hosts Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson unpack a dense week of movies.
