The final line-up for the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival has been announced.  The festival runs from September 6 - September 15.  Here's what Anne Thompson of Variety has to say about some of the top festival entries:

I've already screened Julie Taymor's audacious Beatles musical Across the Universe (a must-see, no matter how far out it gets); Tamara Jenkins' Sundance hit The Savages, which should get noms for Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laua Linney; Neil Jordan's smart psychological actioner The Brave One (which should earn Jodie Foster serious Oscar buzz for her performance as a vengeful victim of violence); Terry George's intense drama Reservation Road, which pits Mark Ruffalo against Joaquin Phoenix; Julian Schnabel's exquisitely crafted French-language The Diving Bell and the Butterfly; Paul Haggis's In the Valley of Elah (a strong Oscar contender thanks to a fierce performance by Tommy Lee Jones); the Coen brothers' No Country for Old Men (also starring Jones, it should last through the entire Oscar season; Javier Bardem will score many kudos, no matter what).

Jeff Wells of Hollywood-Elsewhere has a list of 55 must see films at the festival.

  • 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.
