The movies to watch at TIFF 2012
American movie star Ben Affleck exercises his directorial muscle once more after excellent work on Gone Baby Gone and The Town. This time, he directs and stars in a dramatized account of the Iran hostage crisis of 1979, one of Canada’s finest moments in the annals of international espionage.
While it looks trashy, with Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and friends as bikini-clad petty criminals, the movie grabs your attention through its creator. Harmony Korine (Kids, Gummo, Julien Donkey-Boy) is an American provocateur.
The plot points for this unlikely international collaboration are dizzying. But Susan Sarandon, who has a small support role, says that this movie has enormous promise, based on her brief glimpses at the work of German Tom Tykwer (Run Lola run) and American siblings Andy and Lana Wachowski (The Matrix).
London-born Irish playwright Martin McDonagh is a bloody genius. His last feature film, In Bruges, is a criminal masterpiece. So I expect nothing less from this crazy new opus, with Colin Farrell back and a great support cast that includes Christoper Walken and Sam Rockwell.
