Prelude To A "TIFF"

Welcome to Movieforum's new home for up-to-the-minute coverage of the 3oth annual Toronto International Film Festival. Regular reports (I'll aspire to "daily", but no promises, what with Midnight Madness and all...) will begin Thursday, Sept. 8 via the miracle of e-blogging, starting with the North American premiere of Shane Black's noir pastiche "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang", starring Robert Downey Jr., and Val Kilmer.

Keep visiting for informed and unapologetically prejudiced opinions on more than two dozen planned films including David Cronenberg's "A History Of Violence", Terry Gilliam's "Tideland", Lars von Trier's "Manderlay", Steven Soderbergh's "Bubble", Neil Jordan's "Breakfast On Pluto", Eli Roth's "Hostel", Roman Polanski's "Oliver", Park Chan Wook's "Sympathy For Lady Vengeance", Atom Egoyan's "Where The Truth Lies", Mary Harron's "The Notorious Betty Page", and of course, Sturla Gunnerson's "Beowulf And Grendel".
