While we continue to remain truly puzzled as to why Xavier Dolan's gorgeous, sprawling and lovely "Laurence Anyways" is continously unable to secure a U.S. distribution deal, the young filmmaker left Toronto with a prize under his arm. His latest film took home the Best Canadian Feature Film from TIFF, and as usual, Dolan is plowing ahead on his next project. This spring it was announced he would tackling the adaptation of the play "Tom a la Ferme," but after that he's got some big plans. Very big plans.

This Christmas will mark whole two years since the last Coen Brothers' film, an absence that's somewhat foreign to us consdering the pair had a prolific run of consecutive films between 2007 and 2010 with "No Country For Old Men," "Burn After Reading," "A Serious Man" and "True Grit." While we've been working under the impression the brothers' latest effort, "Inside Llewyn Davis," would be unveiled next year at the earliest, star Oscar Isaac has thrown a spanner in the works as he recently "hinted that we may indeed see the Coens' movie by year's end although they've yet to announce who may be distributing it domestically."

After the cinematic wasteland that was August, September is shaping up to be much better, especially with Rian Johnson’s “Looper” arriving at the end of the month.

While we continue to wait patiently for "Only God Forgives," Nicolas Winding Refn seems to be spending a good part of his 2012 shooting beautiful women in fashion spots. Nice work if you get it.

It’s back-to-school season, in the real world and in Movieland, as art continues to imitate life. As you (or your kids, or a friend, or maybe just some random person on the corner) get back into the swing of the classroom, you can watch the big screen stars do the same thing! We do mean this literally, as two films this weekend are set within the hallowed walls of institutions of learning. But there are plenty of protagonists receiving informal educations (to Scientology… question mark?), learning new trades, and reintroducing themselves to the world as well. So go hit the books, then the theaters. Or vice versa: we won’t tattle.
