Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'A Dangerous Method'

David Cronenberg's latest is a chilly study of the creative and competitive triangle between Sigmund Freud (Viggo Mortensen), Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender), and the lesser-known Sabina Spielrein (Keira Knightly) in the early years of the 20th century.

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'The Day'

Can a cannibal ever truly be redeemed? For the answer to this Augustinian question I guess you could watch The Day, but it's probably better to just let that be one of life's unaswerables.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Into the Abyss'

In his documentaries especially, Herzog throws the supposed regulations out completely, ditching any pretense toward objectivity or “documentation” for a decidedly first-person perspective

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Sons of Norway'

Sons of Norway, mockingly named after a Norwegian cultural heritage preservation society, tells the story of the role punk music and culture influenced a young boy on the cusp of his adolescence in 1978.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'The Descendants'

This is a mature and well-executed study of what happens when people die and leave us with their messes to clean up.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Kill List'

Kill List is the single most demented horror film I have seen in years, and maybe also the very best.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Martha Marcy May Marlene'

An exquisite, terrifying, and marvelously vertiginous film, Martha Marcy May Marlene is my favourite movie of the Festival, and may stand up as my favourite picture of the year.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Elles'

Although in some ways a seductive feminist study of sex, power, and commerce -- for Binoche is writing this article for money, we cannot forget -- the overall impression by film's end is one of bewilderment rather than contemplation.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Dark Horse'

Todd Solondz (Happiness, Life During Wartime) understands tackiness on a deeper level than just about everyone else in the business besides John Waters.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'The Kid With a Bike'

This quiet little tour de force about a troubled young boy has bewitched the critics at this year's Festival.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Take This Waltz'

Take This Waltz is set in Polley's native Toronto and it makes wide use of that city's funky west end for its locations and local musicians for its score (a real treat for this Torontonian).

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Pearl Jam Twenty'

Documentaries made by non-documentarians can be exhilarating since, new to the form, the filmmakers tend to break old rules and push into interesting territory. But they can also wind up looking something like Pearl Jam Twenty.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'The Ides of March'

This dark, angry movie wants to be a smart, keep-you-guessing political thriller but winds up a wildly improbable and deeply cynical melodrama.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Melancholia'

"The earth is evil. We don't need to grieve for it." So declares a luminous Kirsten Dunst in Danish provocateur Lars von Trier's best and most powerful film yet.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Moneyball'

Expect Brad Pitt to get some award season attention for his playful portrayal of real life Oakland A's GM Billy Beane, a man trying to find a way to win a game with a stacked deck.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Where Do We Go Now?'

An enchanting, brilliant, and heartbreaking film about civil war and its indelible legacy, this Lebanese masterwork utterly slayed me.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Once Upon a Time in Anatolia'

A languid, patience-testing three-hour police procedural that spends its entire first 90 minutes in the literal (and, of course, figurative) dark, this one is not for everyone.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Lipstikka'

The story of two Palestinian refugees (one Christian and one Muslim) and their tumultuous, tortured relationship over 30 years, this provocative picture almost works.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Think of Me'

Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) gives a breakout film performance as a single mother struggling to make ends meet in seedy Las Vegas.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'The Loneliest Planet'

This archetypal art house film follows two mostly non-verbal tourists as they hike through the Caucuses under mostly overcast skies.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'My Worst Nightmare'

Quite uncomfortably, the film uses class stereotypes aggressively and persistently, relying upon them as scaffolding for this faux-existential narrative about awakening and self-actualization.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'The Island President'

This is one of those documentaries designed to make you march out of the theatre and do something to change the world.

Film

Toronto International Film Festival 2011: 'Burning Man'

This is a perfectly devastating Australian film about the horror of loss and the futility of refusing to face up to grief.

Film

11 Things to Look Forward to at the Toronto International Film Festival

A mix of art house experiments, mainstream confections, grand costume dramas, sex-soaked character studies, apocalyptic horror, intimate human drama, political satires, rock 'n' roll documentaries, and a little Werner Herzog for good measure.
