TIFF Review Roundup: September 9

It's TIFF day two, and have we got reviews for you!

Okay listen here: don’t expect all of these review roundups to be so forgiving. They’re not all bangers at TIFF. In fact, oftentimes, they’re mash. But today you lucked out, because we’re two-for-three bangers, between Bryan Wizemann’s stirring social drama Think of Me () and Guy Maddin’s digitally shot haunted house fantasia, Keyhole (). Best of all, though, is Jafar Panahi’s deeply touching, radically innovative love letter to cinema, and to his native Iran (the country that banned him from practicing cinema), This is not a Film (). Also premiering today is Lynne Ramsay’s much-anticipated We Need to Talk About Kevin (). The film has been dividing people since it premiered at Cannes earlier this year, and we find ourselves on the side of the divide where we don’t think it’s very good at all and, in fact, is quite bad. That said, you very well may like it. You’d just be wrong.
