TIFF 2011, Today, I will board a plane to Canada, where he’ll take care of my seventh consecutive year, Toronto International Film Festival. As expected, TIFF has scheduled a treasure trove of film events, making it almost impossible to cover all the movies on a wish list. Is the next “king’s speech” waiting to unspool to TIFF? We’ll know soon.
I have been busy in the weeks before the festival this year, our average Alley Awards with extensive previews of movies waiting to be major player in the Oscar race this year. You know the titles so far: Alexander Payne, “descendants,” George Clooney “The Ides of March”, “The Artist” by Michel Hazanavicius, Brad Pitt, “Moneyball” and “Albert Nobbs,” with a winning performance by Glenn Close.
But every film festival programming promises surprises, and TIFF 2011 should be no different. Some films could begin this year’s festival flying under the radar, but emerge with rumors of value. Is a bed on schedule TIFF, or a film that has attracted attention, however, is about to explode?
Here are 10 movies that I keep my eyes to see how they play in TIFF format. We may be talking about them more than the Oscar season over the rolls, or they may disappear under media scrutiny to the north of the border. Anything is possible on the eve of this spectacular film festival. So what does the future hold for the following?
I’m cheating a little right off the bat because I have seen Jonathan Levine’s comedy, cancer, and I think Joseph Gordon-Levitt gives a performance worthy of awards as an editor of NPR young man who discovers he has cancer. People also come out of this talking about Seth Rogen, Anjelica Huston and Anna Kendrick, all excellent in their support. But Levitt show. Be sure to catch.
“Machine Gun Preacher”
A trusted source tells me the biography of Marc Forster, the drug dealer became a missionary Sam Childers is a successful business of a competitor Oscar. However, Forster has sort of training actors for nominations (Johnny Depp) and Victoria (Halle Berry), so it is not beyond the realm of possibility that he does the same with Gerard Butler.
Another film that was able to catch a pre-TIFF. By all accounts, the director Nicolas Winding Refn has made a genre film that plays smart and fresh and frenetic, with the crowd. I’ll have a full review once the site starts TIFF, but I’ll go on record as saying Albert Brooks can get the best actor Oscar nomination for his role as gangster FilmDistrict malice if you play your cards.
First actress Kirsten Dunst won the Best Actress at Cannes for her role as the blushing bride. However, that and a dollar will give you four quarters. While Lars von Trier, often plays very well with critics, it is unclear if an end-of-the-world drama can lead to the goodwill of the North American Cannes.
Ralph Fiennes directs an adaptation of William Shakespeare, with a performance worthy of an Oscar for Vanessa Redgrave. Or so I’m listening.
Michael Shannon, Jessica Chastain and the ubiquitous star in a touching drama about a man obsessed with conflict with a pending storm. A Cannes and Sundance favorite (which was nominated for the Jury Prize at last), “Shelter” critical Internet has on his side. You can gain more followers in TIFF?
Another title from Sundance (and winner of the Grand Jury) with the heat of the festival, Drake Doremus romance stars Anton Yelchin and “It” girl Felicity Jones as lovers of a lasting relationship transcontinental.
The big question surrounding last of Steve McQueen, or not, wet the provocative drama reportedly can get U.S. distribution. After that, I’ve been wondering how the story of a sex addict to play with more members of the Academy, no matter how good Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan, certainly are. Even with very good reviews, this story will take some time to get ahead, but I have a feeling we’ll be talking about “shame” for a while.
The latest from director Fernando Meirelles, which I hope is closer to the “City of God” or “The Constant Gardener” that “blindness.” A screenplay by Peter Morgan will help.
At first glance, it sounds like a genre thriller about a renegade police (Woody Harrelson), trying to stay ahead of corruption in his department. But when you realize that Harrelson is meeting with “The Messenger” director Oren Moverman, and are working on a story by James Ellroy, understand why I’m paying attention.
And this is not even making room for Sarah Polley “Take this waltz” (you can not lose), Pedro Almodovar, “The skin I live in,” the comedy “Butter,” the horror film shown “We have talk About Kevin, “the Sundance hit” Pariah “, or Sean Durkin” Martha Marcy May Marlene, “I have said is a masterpiece. Such is the problem with TIFF … good to have, unless you’re trying to keep a schedule in order.
Please bookmark the site and visit often. I’ll write from TIFF whenever I have a spare moment, and we will be covering these titles and much more all-season long.
