Wrap Up Coverage From Telluride 2011 As Well, Including 'The Descendants' 'Albert Nobbs' & 'Butter'



While there are two more days officially left on the Venice Film Festival schedule, for us, the Lido is now closed. Our man in the field, U.K. writer Oliver Lyttelton did a bang-up job and delivered what felt like 20 reviews in nine days, and at a rapid and coherent clip no less. While the Toronto International Film Festival kicks off today, we've already seen many of the highlights of the fall film festival that you're highly anticipating.

We saw films by some of the world's greatest auteurs, Roman Polanski, David Cronenberg, Steven Soderbergh, new pictures by on-the-rise directors like Steve McQueen, Yorgos Lanthimos, Andrea Arnold, and movies featuring the likes of Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, George Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, Abbie Cornish, Al Pacino, Jessica Chastain and many, many more (obviously that's just a small taste).

So to keep it short and simple, in case you missed them, below, here's a quick recap of what we saw in Venice.

Reviews from Venice:

George Clooney's "Ides Of March" starring Ryan Gosling.
Roman Polanski's "Carnage" starring Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly.
Madonna's "W.E." starring Abbie Cornish,James D'Arcy, Oscar Isaac and Andrea Riseborough.
David Cronenberg's "A Dangerous Method" starring Keira Knightley, Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender.
Greek filmmaker's Yorgos Lanthimos' "Alps," the highly anticipated follow-up to his breakthrough film, "Dogtooth."
Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion" starring Kate Winslet, Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Marion Cotillard, Jude Law and Laurence Fishburne.
British director Steve McQueen's "Shame" starring Carey Mulligan and Michael Fassbender.
Al Pacino's "Wilde Salome" starring himself and "The Tree of Life" star Jessica Chastain.
The spy film "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" featuring Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, John Hurt, Benedict Cumberbatch, Mark Strong and Toby Jones as directed by "Let The Right One In" Swedish filmmaker Tomas Alfredson.
Todd Solondz's "Dark Horse" starring Mia Farrow, Jordan Gelber, Justin Bartha, Selma Blair and Christopher Walken.
Andrea Arnold's highly anticipated adaptation of "Wuthering Heights."

And many, many more. You can see all our Venice coverage here by following this link.

While we're at it we were also in Telluride this weekend. We saw:
Alexander Payne's "The Descendants" starring George Clooney.
"Butter" starring Jennifer Garner, Hugh Jackman and Olivia Wilde.
And lastly, "Albert Nobbs" starring Glenn Close, Mia Wasikowska and Aaron Johnson.

Whew, that's a lot of films in the span of one week. We hope you enjoyed our coverage. We'll be giving you plenty more from TIFF this week and next.
