At this year’s film festival, if all goes to plan, we’ll be seeing five of these movies:
- Biutiful or Trust
- Beautiful Boy or Blame
- Cave of Forgotten Dreams or Let Me In
- Confessions or 127 Hours
- 13 Assassins or Amigo
The most frustrating part of this year (aside from the eternally unusable TIFF website) was finding out that the ‘premium’ screenings — into which ordinary movie-loving (as opposed to celebrity-slobbering) attendees are not allowed — are no longer limited to Roy Thomson Hall and the Elgin. We now find ourselves cut off from a few screenings at the Ryerson, Winter Garden and even the sad little Isabel Bader theatre.
If we get all our first picks we’ll have a nice little lineup, and a bad-ass samurai movie to close it out.
