I dropped a hint about this a few days ago, but Renae and I will be venturing up north to the wilderness outpost that is Toronto to attend this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). And if this list of initial screenings is any indication, we made a wise choice. Heck, it’d be worth going just to see Invisible Waves, Pen-ek Ratanaruang’s follow-up to Last Life in the Universe (one of my fave films).
Other films include Ken Loach’s The Wind That Shakes the Barley (the big winner at this year’s Cannes), Kim Ki-Duk’s Time (A film by one of the world’s most divisive directors? How can I not be intrigued?), Babel (the latest from Alejandro Iñárritu, and one that’s garnered a number of raves), and Lights in the Dusk (Aki Kaurismäki’s follow-up to The Man Without A Past).
There are plenty of other titles I hope to see added in the coming months, so let’s keep our finger’s crossed. And as usual, no mention of what might be showing at Midnight Madness, but there are plenty of little birdies dropping hints as to what might be hitting festival screens in the wee hours of the morning. And they’re all very exciting.
