Something TIFF This Way Comes


The 2012 edition of TIFF is a little over a week away. I should have my festival schedule finalized by early next week. In the meantime, here are a few films playing at TIFF that have caught my eye.

Passion




Lore



Motorway




Blondie



Cloud Atlas




Berberian Sound Studio

    1. I am excited for Passion as well. De Palma can be hit or miss at times but I am intrigued by this one. As for Lore, I think that might be one of the hidden gems of the festival.

  2. Glad I'm not the only one which had Motorway catch their eye... I already have it scheduled, as well as Passion & Clout Atlas.

    I'm not that sold on Berberian, mainly because it strikes me as an odd remake to Blow Out (which I love) and I'm not sure it will be able to pull it off, but we'll see.

    1. The fact that Berberian has shades of Blow Out is exactly why I am keen on seeing it. The film looks like it has taken the concept in a much darker direction.

      Motorway is a film that looks like it could be fun in a Fast Five kind of way.

  3. Im really excited about Cloud Atlas and Passion. I have seen Love Crime of which Passion is based off of an while that is a good movie, it wasn't great. I think DePalma could pull of a good remake. Well I'm hoping he can

    1. It just looks like the type of film De Palma would excel at. It has shades of his 80s films, which I think is the period when he did his best work.
