Toronto wraps up today

Posted By on Sat, Sep 16, 2006 at 9:09 AM

Today is the last day of the Toronto International Film Festival.  Based on what I've read, it appears that the following films have come out of the festival with hype and momentum leading into the fall wide-release season. (I'll post any updates from the TIFF here when I receive them).

Babel
Bobby
Little Children
The Last King of Scotland
Catch a Fire
Breaking and Entering
For Your Consideration
Children of Men
Volver

All of these films were on my Top 20 to see this fall list.  It looks like All the King's Men and A Good Year may not be all that good.  The Black Dahlia opened to very poor reviews (I'll see it tomorrow), so there's 3 of my 20 that appear to stink.  Let's hope this trend doesn't continue.

It doesn't look like we're not adding to the list much at this point.  Maybe Paris, je t'aime and Sherrybaby, although those are homer picks because they both star BSR IT girl Maggie Gyllenhaal.  Venus probably makes the list now because of Peter O'Toole's positive reviews. 

Any thoughts?

  • That Time of Year

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
