TIFF 2013: Latest From Alain Guiraudie, Cristi Puiu, Claire Denis & Catherine Breillat Added to Line-Up

Thanks to the inquisitive nature of one of our most unabashedly hardcore cinephile writers on the site (Blake you’re a hawk!), we’ve uncovered a slew of title offerings for this year’s TIFF (a little ahead of what should be the final announcement wave) and we’ve got a grab-bag of mention-worthy items from beloved auteurs. Among the titles (see list below – here’s our source) we find carry-over items from Cannes in Alain Guiraudie’s Stranger by the Lake, Rithy Panh’s The Missing Image, Guillaume Canet’s Blood Ties and Claire Denis’ Bastards (among one of our top films for 2013 – see pic above), while from Venice, we have the just-inserted Patrice Leconte title, A Promise and what will easily be among the most sought after TIFF 2013 coverage items in Catherine Breillat’s Abus de faiblesse.
