Toronto Fest: 9 to Watch (and more)

ReelPolitik By Anthony Kaufman | ReelPolitik September 7, 2010 at 2:17AM

For the Wall Street Journal Online (and hence, targeted more to mainstream consumers), here is my Toronto Film Festival Nine Films to Watch, which includes usual suspects such as "Black Swan" and "127 Hours," but I've also thrown in Errol Morris' doc "Tabloid" (I'm a fan) and the new "Brighton Rock" update, starring Sam Riley (I'm a fan of both the actor, and of course, author Graham Greene, who wrote the 1938 book on which the film is based). I could also have equally noted John Cameron Mitchel's "Rabbit Hole" (I did namecheck Nicole Kidman with that film in mind).

For those interested in my more personal indie-minded tastes, I've heard good things about Canadian director Denis Villeneuve's."Incendies," and I'm curious about up-and-coming U.S. director Arielle Javitch’s first feature "Look, Stranger," starring Anamaria Marinca ("4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days"), and keeping with the Romanian New Wave, Bogdan George Apetri's recent Locarno premiere "Outbound."
