TIFF Review Roundup: September 17

It's TIFF day 10 and the ink is gone from our ballpoint pen!

To quote Europe: it’s the final countdown. It’s the second to last full day of festival programming, which means it’s the second to last chance to catch TIFF flicks. We’ve taken extensive notes over the past two weeks so hopefully we can help you make the most of the waning hours of TIFF. One way is to take a trip into the depths of the male psyche with Tyrannosaur (). Sure, it should be avoided by dog lovers, but the debut film from actor-turned-writer/director Paddy Considine has the courage to stay bleak from start to finish. With a subheading on its review like “ah… who cares,” The Snows of Kilimanjaro () would be one to avoid. Obvious and sentimental, this attempt at exploring labour equity is about as revolutionary as a Wall Street broker. On the other end of the spectrum there’s The Descendants (), you know, that other George Clooney movie playing at TIFF. Confident, funny, and showcasing Clooney at his best, Alexander Payne’s latest won’t disappoint.

But hey, we’re only making some suggestions! More on what’s playing here.
