So I go back to work tomorrow and will have to answer the inevitable question “so what was the best movie you saw?”
Here’s the thing about TIFF – while you do get your fair share of mainstream picks, you also get a lot of pedophilia, incest and tears. Not necessarily the types of movies that you would rec to the boss. So this posting is mostly to help remind me at a glance what I watched and liked – and also to help me when I am building my schedule during TIFF10.
When thinking about my approach for next year, I did have a moment of – why not just make it an all Jane/Thom/Colin festival – but then I wouldn’t have seen the totally awesome Cell 211.
So for now to help me remember what (and who) I liked, I’m going to list the movies I saw, separated by programmer with the ones I would watch again/recommend in bold.
Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans
Year of the Carnivore
Waking Sleeping Beauty
Schmatta: Rags to Riches to Rags
Up in the Air
