My TIFF 2011 Film Schedule

4 September 2011 No Comment

Well, the long, hard battle with Maxweb is over, and I came out relativly unscathed. At least I didn’t suffer like those poor folks who spent 12+ hours camping out for tickets at the box office. I’m dedicated, but clearly not that dedicated.

Below is my film schedule. I’ve got lots of other things on tap, and may check out a few free art shows/movies as well, but this is what I’m confirmed for.

Except: Movies with a “>” I’ve as of yet been able to secure tickets to. I’ll either give up, or Rush Line them.
If you’re more used to TIFFr, see my schedule here.

My one-line summary of why I’m seeing each movie; (in viewing order)

My TIFF 2011 Schedule

We Need to Talk About Kevin
My BTIFFF (Best TIFF Friend) Ahli told me it got great reviews at Cannes, and Tilda Swinton is awesome.

A Dangerous Method
Viggo, Cronenberg, Keira, Vincent and Fassbender. Still haven’t got tickets, but plan on waiting in the Rush line All Day Long if need be.

Drive
Ryan Gosling is so hot right now, also Ahli said she’s pay for my ticket if I went with her (even though this one is definitely getting a Theatrical release).

Death of a Superhero
I love Andy Serkis, and I think this is going to be a very touching film, that I wouldn’t otherwise get to see.

Livid
If TIFF has taught me anything over the years, it’s that the French are amazing a really F’d up horror films. See: Sheitan & Frontier(s).

Comic-Con: Episode IV
Gatta love Spurlock and his Popcorn Documentaries. He obviously know his demographic, and I look forward to vicariously visiting San Diego Comic-Con with @Anzi, who’ll see this with me.

Intruders
Reminds me very much of TIFF10’s Insidious. Hoping it’s not just a paycheque movie for Clive Owen.

Superclásico
I’m likely to see anything Danish, and it just so happens that Ole Christian Madsen was the director of Flame & Citron of TIFF08, which I liked very much.

That Summer
I had a free day, and I love Monica Bellucci, so here we are. Another film I’d not be able to see if it weren’t for the ‘fest.

Take Shelter
Ahli suggested it, and I needed something to take my Boyfriend to, so we’re going to this. (He requested something without subtitles… pfft)

The Incident
Two french horror/thrillers in one festival!? Oh Colin Geddes you’re, hands down, my favorite TIFF programmer.

Voilet & Daisy
The oscar-winning writer of Precious (which was all the rage at TIFF09) follows up with his directorial debut; a story about teenage girl assassins (Saoirse Ronan & Alexis Bledel). Sounds good to me!

Melancholia
Despite my aversion to Kirstin Dunst, I adore Lars Von Trier, and everyone else in this film. I believe it’s coming to the Lightbox later in the Fall, so no big deal if I miss it during the Festival.

Martha Marcy May Marlene
This looks thrilling, and another little independent piece I wouldn’t get to see otherwise. Great reviews from Sundance. This director’s first Feature-Length, and hopefully award-winning film.

Sleeping Beauty
My final film of the festival, if I can get tickets. I feel like I’ll be too tired at this point to Rush for them, but we’ll see because this one looks very interesting, a debut film from a female director!

Now you know my plan, what are you seeing?
