TIFF Update

So many movie trailers you guys! I feel like I've already been through the entire film festival. (I just watched over 90 trailers)

As mentioned in yesterday's post, I'm having a really hard time fitting all the movies I want to see into a schedule.  Part of the problem is that I want to see every movie, but it's also due to the fact that I'm much better prepared this year.  Each year I tweak my festival preparation process and as I get more efficient and delve further into my film research, I ensure that I don't end up missing something from the list of films.

Here are two more films, that I'd like to check out this year:


Both this movie and the film the F Word were pretty high on my list of 'want to see', both also coincidentally star Daniel Radcliffe, (not the reason I  wanted to see them), they both only have two showings, both of the opening showings conflict with other films on my list, and the seconding showing of both of these films conflict with each other so I can only chose one.    The F Word is a romantic comedy directed by Michael Dowse (It's All Gone Pete Tong, FUBAR, and Goon) and was shot in Toronto.  While I would have enjoyed seeing the different Toronto locations, the story/subject of Horns appeals to me more.  What really put Horns over the edge is the comparison to Twin Peaks in the synopsis on the TIFF website.

After the brutal murder of his girlfriend, Daniel Radcliffe's character Ignatius, is blamed by many in his small town for her death.  He awakens one morning to find horns growing from his head and finds that everyone starts confessing their darkest, ugliest secrets.  As he learns to come to terms with his new found power, he also realizes that perhaps he can use it to find his girlfriend's real killer.

Only Lovers Left Alive

Here is the description from the TIFF wesbite:
A reclusive, Bowie-like rock star (Tom Hiddleston) — who also happens to be a centuries-old vampire — has his moody, nocturnal reverie disturbed by clamouring fans, a visit from his bloodsucking belle (Tilda Swinton) and the jibes of her irascible sister (Mia Wasikowska).

It's Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton, do I need to say more?

I'm going to be up for a little while longer, going through the TIFF schedule, trailers and my movie picks.  Tickets go on sale September 1st so I have ensure that I have my schedule and back-up schedule ready>

After I get my tickets all sorted out, I may do I post highlighting the films I wanted to see be either was unable to obtain tickets or unable to go due to scheduling conflicts.

  1. That would be really hard to decide which to see. The two you mentioned here sound really good. I hadn't heard of them before. :O

    I hope you have a good time with whatever you choose to see. :D
