Officially the most refreshing breath of air at this year’s TIFF, Nick Cassavetes’ new feature ‘Yellow’, is a step into crazy terrritory, far from his recent romantic comedy fare and "Alpha Dog." Away from traditional ways of telling stories, and towards a different type of perspective, a very different type of view, as he admitted to in the Q&A. You can’t but feel almost like a child trying to talk or review this movie because of how infectiously zany it is; think "Young Adult" on Vicodin and acid. Leading lady Heather Wahiquist puts her all into a truly memorable leading performance, and no wonder; she co-wrote the screenplay with Cassavetes. But the winner has to be the imagination behind the trippiness.

Staring production way back in the fall of 2010, it has been a long time coming for Nick Cassavetes' drug drama "Yellow," but it's now headed to TIFF and a strong handful of images have arrived, though curiously, aside from Sienna Miller, not much is seen of the extended ensemble.

In the red corner! Four-time Academy Award nominee, one-time Academy Award Winner Anthony Hopkins! In the blue corner! You've seen him in everything from "The Hunger Games" to "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy," but you've never seen him like this... It's Toby Jones! Yes, the battle of the biopics is gearing up, and the favorite is certainly "Hitchcock," which sees Hopkins play the great director in a film set against the making of "Psycho." But while we wait to see if it'll make it to theaters in time for Oscars qualification, the underdog is sneaking up.

While it seems like we've been getting various peeks at "The Girl" for a while now, it appears that the movie about the movies is even closer than we thought, and of course to fan those flames, two more stills have dropped in advance of the enticing picture.

Toby Jones must get a little frustrated when he starts making a biopic. The chamelonic character actor got the role of a lifetime when he played Truman Capote in "Infamous" (giving a terrific performance in the process), but despite a starry cast including Sandra Bullock and Daniel Craig, had his thunder stolen when the film's release was delayed for nearly a year, allowing "Capote," starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, to sweep in with acclaim, and an Oscar victory.

It looks like Justin Long has been working his little book of phone numbers hard. The upcoming film "A Case Of You," which he co-wrote, has already lined up an impressive cast with Evan Rachel Wood, Peter Dinklage, Sam Rockwell, Vince Vaughn, Busy Phillips and Keir O'Donnell (who also co-wrote the script along with Justin's brother Chris, who is a co-producer) and now two more names have come along.

Considering he's the most instantly recognizable and iconic filmmaker of all time (bar perhaps Charlie Chaplin), a man whose silhouette alone became a brand name, it's surprising that no one has ever made a film about Alfred Hitchcock, especially considering the particular obsessions in his films seem thematically rife for a biographical approach. But it seems that finally, over 30 years after his death, the time has come. Anthony Hopkins and "Anvil" director Sasha Gervasi are planning "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho," from a script from "Black Swan" scribe John McLaughlin (a project once earmarked for "Glee" and "American Horror Story" mastermind Ryan Murphy; consider that a bullet dodged).

Sienna Miller To Star In Oscar Nominee Rachid Bouchareb's 'Just Like A Woman'

While he walked away empty handed at the Oscars on Sunday night, the nomination certainly put director Rachid Bouchareb on the map and, for those who have been following his career, recognition from the Academy seemed pretty much inevitable. His last few films have tackled some heavy topics including WWII ("Indigènes"), terror attacks ("London River") and the Algerian revolution (the Oscar-nominated "Outside the Law"). But for this next effort, Bouchareb is taking a decidedly lighter path.

Sienna Miller has had an interesting, if not entirely satisfying, career so far. Having been dismissed by many as yet another model-turned-actress after early roles in "Alfie" and "Layer Cake," she proved to be a far more interesting proposition, with an excellent performance in a terrible film, "Factory Girl." She's since proved that wasn't a fluke, with strong work on stage in "As You Like It" and "After Miss Julie," and two very good performances in Steve Buscemi's "Interview" and John Maybury's "The Edge Of Love", stealing the show from Keira Knightley in the latter.
