"The Place Beyond the Pines."
Focus Features "The Place Beyond the Pines."

After ten days and hundreds of movies, the 2012 Toronto Film Festival is history. Audiences in Toronto picked their favorites -- David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook" as the best fiction film, Jared Leto's "Artifact" as the best documentary, and Martin McDonagh's "Seven Psychopaths" as the best midnight movie -- and so did Indiewire's critics. In just over a week, our crew of reviewers churned out dozens of reviews; when you factor in the movies they previously covered at Sundance, Cannes, and other festivals, the final tally is almost 100 pieces (our own lead film critic Eric Kohn -- who'll be off to Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas in a couple days -- reviewed more than 60 of them himself).

If you missed any of Indiewire's reviews, I've collected all of them here, with links to the full text and their Criticwire grades (the author's name or initials are in italics). And I'll be down in Fantastic Fest as well, so expect some coverage from Austin here as well.
