Remember those high school days? When the first and foremost thing upon the brain was "losin' it"?

Good Morning Little Schoolgirl

This was one of the best movies I saw at this year’s film festival, and will likely stand as one of the best I see this year. Go see it when it hits theatres, and prepare to laugh like crazy…

Colder Than You

With the Toronto Film Festival behind me, and the chillier weather greeting my morning commutes to work, my mind has started looking a bit more down the road. Specifically to the glut of great fall movies that are on the way. Part of me thinks it’s a shame that the studios save all these gems...

Thanks, That Was Fun

So another Toronto International Film Festival is behind us…maybe now I can get back to watching movies at a normal pace! I had a great time this year, and count 18 out of my 20 films as ones I would recommend – a much higher ratio than usual! I’d like to think that I’m just...

Reaction: JOY DIVISION

What a difference a week makes. Last Saturday, I sat down to watch Anton Corbijn’s CONTROL knowing precious little about Joy Division. This week, I went with friends to watch the documentary JOY DIVISION ( * * 1/2 ), and felt like somewhat of a seasoned expert as I watched much of the same material...

Reaction: BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU’RE DEAD

No red carpet in sight…lots of tickets available…programmers getting into the Anti-Piracy-“Yarrrrgh“. It must be day ten. With day ten, come the leftovers. The good-looking, under-delivering films that end off this front-end-loaded festival. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve seen a handful of good movies on the last day (IN AMERICA, THE COOLER, WHEN THE LEVEES...

Reaction: AMAZING JOURNEY – THE STORY OF THE WHO

After a while, you need to reset. After a string of exposing yourself to all sorts of new information, you find yourself needing to go back to something familiar to cleanse the palette, to take some comfort and digest everything you’ve just consumed. In this respect, AMAZING JOURNEY – THE STORY OF THE WHO (...

Reaction: MISTER LONELY

This one is going to be short and sweet – I really didn’t like MISTER LONELY ( * ). The movie is primarily about a group of people who are all impersonators. They all live together at a massive estate, where they hope to put on a performance for whatever audience they might get. Think...

Tired Eyes

Thoughts on a Friday AfternoonSeveral signs are telling me that this year’s Toronto Film festival is almost done…the fact that this morning no cast or crew turned up for the second screening of RESERVATION ROAD – hell the red carpet was even rolled up…the fact that the applause is thinning out for the “thanks volunteers”...
