It’s always like this after TIFF. You think you can catch your breath, but a dozen movies open every week and only some of them were at the festival. Here we go again …
Bad Grandmas: Pam Grier! Florence Henderson! Judge Reinhold?
Blade Runner 2049: Gorgeous, thoughtful, moody, a little long.
Great Great Great: Sarah Kolasky owns this movie. Seriously.
Losing Our Religion: Documentary. It’s on CBC next week.
Loving Vincent: Van Gogh’s art speaks for itself. [Rad]
Lucky: Rest in power, Harry Dean Stanton.
The Mountain Between Us: Elba! Winslet! Get a better script!
My Little Pony: The Movie: Wait, Emily Blunt is in this?
Rebel in the Rye: J.D. Salinger would call this phony.
School Life: Educational documentary, aka In Loco Parentis.
Unarmed Verses: Knockout Toronto documentary from Charles Officer. [Rad]
Oh, and the 2017 edition of Cinefranco starts up at the Carlton tonight; I wrote a web piece about it, and I’ll add the link as soon as it goes live. Stand by!
