    TIFF Review: Benoît Jacquot's 'Three Hearts' Starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chiara Mastroianni & Catherine Deneuve

    The word "melodrama" tends to be used a pejorative these days, and that's because there are few movies or TV shows that execute the specifics of the genre well. When it works, an accomplished melodrama allows the audience to fully invest in the emotional lives of its characters, even if the plot mac...

    TIFF Review: ‘Elephant Song' Starring Xavier Dolan, Bruce Greenwood & Catherine Keener

    Directing and releasing five films across the last four years, with the three of them premiering at Cannes, and another at Venice, you might understand why Xavier Dolan might not have time to return phone calls. And give the limited stateside distribution of his films, it might also be easy to forge...

    Review: 'No Good Deed' Starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson

    At some point earlier this week Screen Gems, the low-budget genre arm of Sony Pictures, sent out an email saying that press screenings for their upcoming home invasion thriller "No Good Deed" had been shuttered because the twist ending was so seismic that they didn't want members of the press seeing...

    TIFF Review: Hal Hartley's 'Ned Rifle' Starring Liam Aiken, Aubrey Plaza, Martin Donovan, Parker Posey & More

    By this point, you're either a Hal Hartley devotee, or you're not. The fiercely independent filmmaker established his voice on films like "Trust," "Flirt," and "The Unbelievable Truth," and for most of his career, stayed far away from the studio system (2001's underrated "No Such Thing" being an exc...

    TIFF Review: ‘X + Y’ Starring Asa Butterfield, Rafe Spall & Sally Hawkins

    There’s something impossibly charming about Morgan Matthews’ “ X+Y,” his debut as a fictional feature-length narrative director. Much like the film’s core message and encompassing theme, this charm doesn’t come with an equation that leads to an easy solution, which only amplifies our satisfaction th...

    TIFF Review: Chris Evans' Directorial Debut 'Before We Go' Co-Starring Alice Eve

    The plight of the actor-turned-director is an unpredictable one. The desire to tell your own story, direct and write or star in it (or sometimes take on all of those roles) is a attractive lure, and can turn out very well.
