Recently, the Toronto International Film Festival has announced the official lineup of Canadian films that will be playing this year. In no particular order, they are as follows:
Below Her Mouth – A Lesbian love story. What starts out as a simple affair turns into a complex relationship. Something tells me this is one of those movies that catches you off guard with a change of genre.
Black Code – Nobody can be safe anywhere. Not even on the Internet. And that’s what this film explores as we learn about agents who know what we’re up to. And I thought having a rare last name was risky.
It’s Only the End of the World – Or that’s what it feels like when a young writer named Lou returns home and tells his family he is dying. Directed by Xavier Dolan. I think Alex knows more about Dolan than I do.
70s Set Weirdos – A film by Bruce MacDonald. I can’t find out much else, it’s not up on IMDB yet.
All Governments Lie – The title speaks the truth. It’s a documentary about a journalist and their discoveries/activism over the buffoons who run our countries.
Two Lovers and a Bear – Up somewhere near the North pole starring two people named Roman and Lucy who find desire for each other. And there’s a polar bear involved somehow.
Anatomy of Violence – A documentary that explores gang rape and fights and New Delhi. So many documentaries on these subjects, yet so few people acknowledge their existence.
Window Horses – An animation about a young Canadian who finds out who her father is when she’s invited to a poetry contest in Iran. I hear this one is supposed to be amazing.
We Can’t Make the Same Mistake Twice – And yet everyone does. What’s the mistake in this one? You’ll have to watch to find out! (No, really, you will. I can’t find this one on IMDB either.)
