TIFF Reviews: Wrestlers, Che, and Kevin Smith’s porno

leave a comment »

TIFF marches on and reviews keep flowing in. As mentioned in a previous blog post I am not in Toronto (sadly) and will not have the opportunity to view many of these films myself, at least not until the reach major distribution. Thus I bring you the best of the reviews from the web…

CHE (review by Twitch Films) – Steven Soderbergh’s two-part four-hour biopic Che doesn’t have a gorgeous Antonio Banderas complaining about all the howling hysterical sorrow over the death of Eva Peron. Nor will you see Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s band of disaffected youth rambling through Tokyo all wearing the same iconic Che t-shirt …more…

Zack and Miri Make a Porno (review by /film) – I have a theory that Kevin Smith’s Zack and Miri Make a Porno is actually just a chronology of Smith’s career so far as a filmmaker. The film starts off much like Clerks, with Seth Rogen trying to wake up for his dreadful job. Minutes later he is walking through the local mall with his roommate and best friend Miri, played by Elizabeth Banks, in a scene that is reminiscent of Mallrats …more…

The Wrestler (review by /film) – Some might say that The Wrestler is a departure from director Darren Aronofsky, while many others may look at it as an evolution. One thing is for sure, it’s very different, and certainly more mature than the filmmaker’s previous work. I’d love to compare it to Paul Thomas Anderson’s transition from films like Boogie Nights and Magnolia to There Will Be Blood. The Wrestler, like TWBB, strips it down to the bones …more…

All three of these films I consider to be ‘must watches’. It has been some years since so many films I am excited about are coming out at one time. The Wrestler, JCVD, CHE, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, Flame and Citron, RocknRolla, etc — needless to say this is going to be a busy fall for movie watching…
