Ohh we're halfway there, ohh livin' in a theatre chair.
My oh my, doesn’t time fly when you’re sitting in dark screening rooms cut off from reality? TIFF is halfway done, and we hope you’ve been treating any seat sores since, you guessed it, there are still a ton of movies to see. First off we’ve got Ingrid Veninger’s latest and best film to date i am a good person/i am a bad person (), a dark satire of the life of an indie filmmaker and her daughter. (If that piques your interest you can also read our Q&A with the Canadian director.) And if sexual angst and repression doesn’t sound like a hoot then… well, you’re right. But Steve McQueen gets into all that with Shame (). Since we seem to be working in decreasing star order, Seth Rogen’s buzzed-about cancer comedy 50/50 () unfortunately lacks the latter half of that equation. But Joseph Gordon-Levitt shaves his head, if that’s worth something.
If none of that tickles your fancy hop on over here for a whack of reviews of films that are playing today.
Want more TIFF? We’ve got you covered.
