    You’re Next, Carré Blanc (450/259)

    by  • 9/16/2011 • TIFF 2011 • 0 Comments

    YOU’RE NEXT – The programmer tells a story by way of introduction to the film, about how the film makers had attended Midnight Madness last year as part of TIFF, and had decided that they HAD to make a Midnight Madness film, and started pre-production in early October, and finished the sound mix within days […]

    I’m Yours (448/258)

    by  • 9/15/2011 • TIFF 2011 • 0 Comments

    I’M YOURS – A Canadian road movie. What have I got myself into? Grabbed a nice large coffee on the way in, just in case. It wasn’t all that bad, though. Sure, the characters have muddled motivations, but they aren’t simple. Not everything in the backstory is explained, not everything is tied up at the […]

    Livid (443/256)

    by  • 9/13/2011 • TIFF 2011 • 0 Comments

    LIVID – This is a bit confusing, and I might have to watch it again. It builds rather slowly for what feels like hour, before anything happens, and the action is not as grand or lengthy as I’d have imagined – it’s over much too quickly, and there are a lot of questions unanswered at […]

    Twiggy, God Bless America, Hick (440/254)

    by  • 9/11/2011 • TIFF 2011 • 0 Comments

    GOD BLESS AMERICA – It’s a film about rude people, inconsiderate people, and evil people who make others dance for their amusement. It’s also a film about shooting those motherfuckers right in their empty fucking heads. It’s a fantastic film in so many ways. Maybe it’s a meaner version of FALLING DOWN, but the crimes […]

    TIFF Lottery Results

    by  • 8/31/2011 • TIFF 2011 • 0 Comments

    A lot of my 2nd choices were toss-ups with the 1st choices in those time slots, so I’m happy to end up with no vouchers and have to try to come up with 3rd choices for some pretty tight spots. These are the shows that I have tickets for at this time. I missed out […]

    TIFF Movies I think I Want to See

    by  • 8/26/2011 • TIFF 2011 • 1 Comment

    Next year? Buying the full Midnight Madness package of films – assuming that I can buy the not-actually-the-midnight-showings versions if I can’t use a week of vacation time for TIFF. Next year, if I take the time off, either the 50 ticket flex or the 30 ticket version plus the Midnight Madness pack. It confuses […]
