From the short list of 28 films we’ve now made our 1st and 2nd choices for the five films we’ll see. Here they are:
- The Ape (Apan) (tiff) or The Trotsky (tiff)
- Triage (tiff) or Up In The Air (tiff)
- The Road (tiff) or Peter Berg Presents: King’s Ransom (tiff)
- Whip It (tiff) or Accident (Yi Ngoi) (tiff)
- Leslie, My Name Is Evil (tiff) or The Front Line (La Prima Linea) (tiff)
We feel pretty good about those picks. The Peter Berg one seems a little out of place, but we wanted one documentary and Nellie has a sentimental attachment to the Gretzky story. “I lived through that!” is what she said, I believe.
Too bad we only have time to see five, but whatever happens I think it’ll be a solid five.
[UPDATE] Changed our third selection to Valhalla Rising (tiff) as our first choice, and The Road as second choice.
