8:00 am – Not many world premieres left at TIFF, but the Don’t Move pairing Sergio Castellitto and Penélope Cruz have teamed with Emile Hirsch for a melodrama that takes place in Sarajevo in Twice Born. [Eric Lavallee]
4:00 pm – Managed to hit 5 screenings yesterday—absolute best being the amazing Post Tenebras Lux—also quite liked Reality. Jesper Gandslandt’s Blondie and Froncous Ozon’s In the House (with Xavier Dolan in attendance) were both strange and interesting. And surprisingly, Barry Levinson’s The Bay was quite good. For today, I’ve three of my six screenings under my belt—the rather ponderous Rhino Season,, Ben Wheatley’s hilarious Sightseers, and Catherine Corsini’s rather banal Three Worlds.
Still to come today, Beyond the Hills, Laurence Anyways, and Come Out and Play. [Nicholas Bell]
5:00 pm – About to step in line at the beautifully restored Bloor Hot Docs Theater for one of my most anticipated titles of the fest – Room 237 – which I sadly missed at Sundance this year. I’m a big The Shining fan, and I love a crazy film theory, so I don’t see how I could go wrong here. Also caught The Fifth Season this afternoon, Leviathan this morning, and will be heading to the world premier of Twice Born tonight. [Jordan M. Smith]
