My TIFF 2017 Reviews


Another Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is in the record books, having spent 7 days watching a total of 14 movies (and one In Conversation with Gael Garcia Bernal).  I did miss one film (the sole documentary I was able to schedule – Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami) due to a flight delay.

Below, in the order I viewed them, are my quick thoughts, Oscar season potential and rating of each film on a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being the best).  You’ll notice that I saw many films about women and several directed by them, which showed TIFF’s commitment to featuring women’s vision and voices at the festival. 

I, Tonya – This Craig Gillespie directed biopic/satire about Tonya Harding exceeded my expectations.  Margot Robbie was very convincing (and somewhat sympathetic) as the damaged Olympian who deals with a complex relationship with her tough love mother (a scene stealing Allison Janney), her abusive first love and husband, Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan) and her passion for figure skating.  It’s also hysterically funny in some scenes as well as very sad.  Robbie did some of her own skating, but clearly they digitally placed her head onto Tonya’s body or a skating double for harder moves like jumps and spins.  In terms of Oscar buzz, Robbie and Janney may get nominations for their strong performances. (4/5)


Molly’s Game – This film is immensely entertaining, and a win for Aaron Sorkin as a director and Jessica Chastain in the title role.  Chastain plays Molly Bloom who ran an underground poker game in NY and LA and winds up in trouble with the FBI.  She does very well with Sorkin’s fast paced dialogue and makes the audience root for Molly.  Idris Elba is also very good as her lawyer as well as Kevin Costner in a smaller role as her psychologist dad.  My only critique is that it could be edited a bit.  Chastain may get nominated for lead actress and Sorkin for the script. (4/5)

The Children Act – Another strong female lead in this British import, starring Emma Thompson as a no nonsense family court judge whose life is turned upside down when she gets involved in a case regarding a 17 year old Jehovah’s witness (Fionn Whitehead) who refuses a live saving blood transfusion.  Thompson is riveting in the role as well as Whitehead whose life she saves and the impact that has on both of them.  The weaker part of the film involves a subplot about her husband (Stanley Tucci) wanting to have an affair but it doesn’t distract from the overall level of the production.  Thompson may nab a nomination, but the field is crowded already. (3.5/5)

The Current War – This was a disappointment, despite a strong cast including Benedict Cumberbatch as Thomas Edison, Michael Shannon as George Westinghouse, Nicholas Hoult as Nikola Tesla and Katherine Waterston as Mrs. Westinghouse.  Pardon the pun, but a film about the race to bring electricity to the masses should be more electric.  I wasn’t that invested in Edison and cared more about Westinghouse.  The film is visually stunning but the characters weren’t as compelling nor was the story.  The audience response was pretty tepid and Miramax honcho Harvey Weinstein didn’t look too happy at the premiere. Oscar chances are pretty slim, IMO. (3/5)



Mary Shelley – Director Haifa Al-Mansour (who comes from Saudi Arabia) lends her sensitive vision to the author’s love story with her eventual husband, the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley (the impossibly pretty Douglas Booth). She is most effective in documenting the inspiration for Frankenstein, which was published anonymously at 18. Elle Fanning does a convincing job as Mary and for the most part the movie succeeds as a period piece.  However, I didn’t care for Tom Sturridge’s performance as a cruel Lord Byron which made him look more like a 1970s rock star (complete with eyeliner, fluid sexuality and an ego to match) than an early 19th century poet.  Still, the story of finding her voice in her writing is inspiring for a lot of young women, who I hope see the film.  I don’t see this getting much Oscar buzz but you never know.  (3.5/5)

Submergence – I really didn’t know what to make of Wim Wender’s love story between an oceanographer (Alicia Vikander) and a water engineer/British spy (James McAcoy).  Told mostly in flashbacks, it’s beautifully shot in Normandy, France and they are both compelling to watch as two intellectuals fall in love.  Then they get separated since he’s going on a mission in North Africa and she’s going on a deep dive to prove that life thrives miles down in the ocean.  He’s captured and tortured by terrorists (while thinking of her) and she spends a lot of time checking her phone, wondering why he’s ghosted her.   Not sure of any Oscar contention here. (3/5)

Woman Walks Ahead – The second Jessica Chastain film I saw here was the weaker of the two. Beautifully shot by director Susanna White and another good performance by Chastain as a Catherine Weldon, a merry widow who travels from NY to Standing Rock in the late 1880s to paint Sitting Bull’s portrait.  She and Sitting Bull (native Canadian actor Michael Greyeyes) develop a strong bond while the townspeople and the US Army (led by Sam Rockwell) try to discourage her from helping the Lakota people, with whom they want to sign a treaty to give up most of their land.  While sensitively acted and shot, the story is a bit too romanticized and takes too many liberties with the real story.  (3.5/5)

Downsizing – From what I’ve read, Alexander Payne’s fable about a man who literally shrinks his life was a polarizing entry at the festival.  I was on the side that really enjoyed it, mostly because it was so funny and I enjoyed the performances by Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz and breakout star Hong Chau.  Where the film may not gel is that it has a hard time deciding what it is – a character study, unexpected love story, sci-fi climate change morality tale or a satire on consumerism.  It might do well on the screenplay and directing categories for the Oscars.  I’m hoping Chau gets a supporting actress nod as a political dissident turned cleaning lady who changes the main character’s life, she’s that good. (4/5)

Darkest Hour – Joe Wright’s WWII era biopic of Winston Churchill was what I would call a prestige entry with Gary Oldman’s expert portrayal of Churchill as he becomes Britain’s Prime Minister and navigates fraught political waters.  The main dramatic arc revolves around whether Britain negotiates peace with Germany and Italy over a period of a few weeks, leading up to the evacuation of troops at Dunkirk (the subject of Christopher Nolan’s recent film).  What could’ve been a dry history lesson is instead riveting mostly due to the performances, writing and the fast pace.  I also enjoyed Downton Abbey’s Lily James as Churchill’s secretary who becomes the audience’s surrogate.   Kristin Scott Thomas is wonderful as Mrs. Churchill and I would’ve liked to see more of her.  Ben Mendelsohn brings some humanity to King George VI, but the film belongs to Oldman, who I hope wins the best actor Oscar. (4.5/5)  


The Shape of Water – Although this didn’t win the Grolsch People’s Choice award (which went to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, with Frances McDormand), this was a festival favorite among audiences and critics.  Guillermo del Toro directs Sally Hawkins in a sure to be Oscar nominated role, a mute woman who is a janitor at a government lab in 1960s Baltimore (shot in Toronto).  She falls in love with a merman creature who is being held there and helps him escape, along with the help of her gay best friend (Richard Jenkins) and sassy co-worker played by Octavia Spencer.  Michael Shannon is the villainous boss and Michael Stuhlbarg plays a Russian scientist who also wants to save the creature.  The plot sounds a bit silly but the film works mixing many genres, ranging from horror to 1930s musicals, while celebrating otherness.  There is some typecasting, especially with Shannon and Spencer, but the film really belongs to Hawkins who communicates every emotion she feels without words. (4/5)

If You Saw His Heart – This film was probably one of my least favorites, which is a shame because Gael Garcia Bernal is a great actor and favorite of mine, but this is not a great addition to his resume.  I’m not sure if it was the direction (by first time French director Joan Chemla) or the lackluster story of a gypsy who loses his best friend in an accident and then lives in a run- down hotel while committing petty crimes to pay rent and trying to avoid his best friend’s brother, who blames him for the death.  He meets a beautiful woman who may be mentally unstable and falls for her.  It was nicely shot and Chemla creates a mood, but without a compelling story, this one goes nowhere and lacks, um, heart.  I did enjoy the interview with him the following evening, though and thankfully they focused on some of his other work. (2/5)


Professor Marston & the Wonder Women:  This is a somewhat conventional biopic of William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans), a psychology professor who created the Wonder Woman comics in the 1940s.  Director Angela Robinson shows the inspiration for his famous work in the form of his brilliant feminist wife (a stellar Rebecca Hall) and a beautiful teaching assistant (Bella Heathcote). They become a long term threesome with several children, while trying to hide their unconventional relationship from the public.  There’s some mild kink and BDSM themes but the film never feels exploitative since the focus is on the love the trio have for each other.  Will it get any Oscar love?  A slim shot for Rebecca Hall to sneak in a nomination for supporting actress. (3.5/5)

Mudbound:  Director Dee Rees (if you’re counting, this is the fifth film I saw at the festival directed by a woman) takes many narratives and has them gel beautifully in this film about two families, one white, one black who co-exist on a Mississippi farm in the 1940s.  The main narrative is about the friendship between two WWII soldiers (Garrett Hedlund and Jason Mitchell) from the families who bond, despite the difference in their races.  Unfortunately, their friendship has devastating consequences.  There are also fantastic performances from the ensemble including Carey Mulligan, a de-glamorized Mary J. Blige, and Jason Clarke.  Although it takes place 70+ years ago, the inclusion of white supremacists makes it especially relevant.  Despite some brutal scenes towards the end, the film ends on an uplifting note.  I hope the film gets some Oscar nominations – perhaps for picture, direction, screenplay and supporting actor nods. (4.5/5) 

Eye on Juliet:  My final TIFF film was an indie from Canadian director Kim Ngyuen.  Gordon (Joe Cole), lives in Detroit and just was dumped by his girlfriend.  He works as a hexapod operator (a robot that is sort of like a drone but it doesn’t fly and has six legs) that guards an oil pipeline in North Africa.  During his surveillance sessions he keeps seeing a young woman named Ayusha. (Juliet3000 becomes her code name) Intrigued by her story (she is trying to escape an arranged marriage with an older man by leaving with her boyfriend), Gordon decides to buck protocol to help her.  The film is a bit fanciful, especially the ending, but overall was charming and showed how technology can bring people together who otherwise would’ve never crossed paths.  Not expecting Oscars for this one, but hope it finds an audience. (3.5/5)

Most of the films I saw had some merit and many of them will most likely be showered with accolades come Oscar season.  I am not done yet with festival season, as I am planning to see a few more during the New York Film Festival (NYFF) including Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird (which was well received at TIFF) next month.  I will be sure to post my thoughts!

Sixteen years ago today our country was attacked, crumbling NYC's World Trade Center.

I turned this controversial photo upside-down in 2011 to celebrate the 10th year and today marks 15 years of resilience; Also a symbol of rising peace. Flagship 1 WTC stands at the symbolic height of 1776, the year when we Americans declared our independence and "all men created equal," now once again, 1776 beautifying NYC's skyline. This photo is symbolic for our rising towers, faith and independence. I share this post (update it a bit) every anniversary year.
For those born on 9/11 or near that date, please visit birthdaySpirit.org ~~  no matter what your age, visit birthdaySpirit.org and celebrate all goodness born on this tragic day of mourning. You can even register to stay up to date on happenings and things about 9/11 birthday members.

Emotionally charged, mixed feelings - 2001 to 2015. From Poet Laureate, Billy Collins' prose commemorating all of the 9/11 victims, "The Names," posted below, to one of the most provocative, unforgettable images by Associated Press photographer Richard Drew, of a man falling from the twin towers, positioned perfectly in the middle. 

The photo was taken at about 9:41 am on 9/11/01 -- 15 minutes before the 1st building, the South tower, collapsed. Videos would show that the falling man was actually a tumbling man in the air and this is one moment in his time that was captured.

Note how perfectly straight, positioned in the middle and parallel to the burning towers the falling man is. The above photo was branded distasteful and voyeuristic -- never to be shown again, yet the incredible "falling man" is still around.

For those of 

you 

wondering 

how our 

WTC 

looked before 

9/11/01, 

here's a 

photo 

by 

photographer 

Joseph Lopes 

taken in 1979.  




There is much up side today. By the 11th anniversary (2012) the new multi-billion-dollar World Trade Center, was back up in lower Manhattan's skyline.

One World Trade Center (formerly known as the Freedom Tower) which was completed on August 30, 2012 and the final component spire installed on May 10, 2013.

Additional complexes include 7 World Trade Center, three other high-rise office buildings, a museum and memorial, and a transportation hub similar in size to Grand Central Terminal. The Four World Trade Center opened to tenants and public on  November 13, 2013. The 9/11 memorial is complete, and the museum opened May 21, 2014. Three World Trade Center open in 2015 and the $4 billion Transportation Hub, the most expensive ever also called "Oculus" (originally opened back in 1903) reopened  March 4, 2016.  Two World Trade Center's full construction has been placed on hold until tenants can be found; It began construction in June 2008 and is still expected to be completed by 2020. Three World Trade Center, in the very center of  the new WTC began construction in 2010 and is scheduled to open by 2018 (earlier than anticipated). As posted by wtc.com "The defining aspect of 3 WTC is its load-sharing system of diamond-shaped bracing, which helps to articulate the building's east-west configuration. This allows unimpeded 360-degree panoramic views of New York."  WTC overview photo above by Joe Woolhead, Silverstein Properties

Budgeted at 3.9 billion upon completion, flagship, One World Trade Center, formerly known as the Freedom Tower, has been opened since November 3, 2014. At 104 stories (1368 feet high), the decorative architectural spire atop makes the building stand at the symbolic height of 1,776 feet. Observation decks will adorn the 100th, 101st and 102nd floors. Tenants so far include magazine publisher Conde Nast and the federal government's General Services Administration. Visit time lapse of 1 WTC video animation of rebuilding 1 WTC.

At 72 stories (977ft high) Four World Trade Center, was the first office building to open, (October 2013). First tenants were Port Authority, the Bistate agency that owns the trade center site and lost its headquarters when the twin towers were attacked. According to many articles and documentaries, there were about 200 people who jumped to their deaths, some were able to be identified only for the victim’s families and to provide closure for them. But there was no time to recover or identify those who were forced to jump prior to the collapse of the towers. We lost almost 3,000 lives that day.

Where were you on 9/11/2001?
I was working on Wall Street( on the corner of Wall and Water Streets). It was a beautiful, clear skied morning. I arrived early as I usually do and was at my desk on the computer when I heard a loud bang and felt rumbling underneath my desk at 8:46 a.m. I shouted "What was that?" Then 15 minutes later another bang, as some fellow employees arrived - initially we thought it was from a missile. Hard to imagine it would be the biggest single attack on American lives. I still keep asking myself "how could this be?" I was curious and ran outside to see what was happening.

As I was walking on Water St. and reached Liberty St., it was at about 10:00 am, I saw large billows of gray smoke, appearing to turn day to night, enveloping hundreds if not thousands of people running for their lives – apparently heading towards the river. I asked some folks what is happening and all were in shock. With all the commotion, all they could say while they were running was “it’s down, it’s down.” At that moment, I thought another plane came down. I ran back to the office and learned from colleagues that the South tower collapsed (incidentally, this was the 2nd building hit). The North tower (1st building hit) collapsed at about 30 minutes later. And the world would never be the same.


"The Names" poem by Billy Collins posted below:
Yesterday, I lay awake in the palm of the night.
A soft rain stole in, unhelped by any breeze,
And when I saw the silver glaze on the windows,
I started with A, with Ackerman, as it happened,
Then Baxter and Calabro,
Davis and Eberling, names falling into place
As droplets fell through the dark.
Names printed on the ceiling of the night.
Names slipping around a watery bend.
Twenty-six willows on the banks of a stream.
In the morning, I walked out barefoot
Among thousands of flowers
Heavy with dew like the eyes of tears,
And each had a name --
Fiori inscribed on a yellow petal
Then Gonzalez and Han, Ishikawa and Jenkins.
Names written in the air
And stitched into the cloth of the day.
A name under a photograph taped to a mailbox.
Monogram on a torn shirt,
I see you spelled out on storefront windows
And on the bright unfurled awnings of this city.
I say the syllables as I turn a corner --
Kelly and Lee,
Medina, Nardella, and O'Connor.
When I peer into the woods,
I see a thick tangle where letters are hidden
As in a puzzle concocted for children.
Parker and Quigley in the twigs of an ash,
Rizzo, Schubert, Torres, and Upton,
Secrets in the boughs of an ancient maple.
Names written in the pale sky.
Names rising in the updraft amid buildings.
Names silent in stone
Or cried out behind a door.
Names blown over the earth and out to sea.
In the evening -- weakening light, the last swallows.
A boy on a lake lifts his oars.
A woman by a window puts a match to a candle,
And the names are outlined on the rose clouds --
Vanacore and Wallace,
(let X stand, if it can, for the ones unfound)
Then Young and Ziminsky, the final jolt of Z.
Names etched on the head of a pin.
One name spanning a bridge, another undergoing a tunnel.
A blue name needled into the skin.
Names of citizens, workers, mothers and fathers,
The bright-eyed daughter, the quick son.
Alphabet of names in a green field.
Names in the small tracks of birds.
Names lifted from a hat
Or balanced on the tip of the tongue.
Names wheeled into the dim warehouse of memory.
So many names, there is barely room on the walls of the heart

Happy 135th Labor Day America (or 123nd when it became an official holiday); Do you still wear white after Labor Day? See Pantone's 2017 Fall Colors, from Grenadine Red to Tawny Autumn Maple!

“Labor day is a great American holiday that people celebrate by going out and buying products made in China.” ~~ David Letterman,
American television host and comedian; Host of CBS Late Show with David Letterman, recently surpassing Johnny Carson for having the longest late-night hosting career in the USA, on the irony of Labor Day

Today is Labor Day. Happy 135th Labor Day America! Let’s admit it, this holiday has been amazingly ironic over the past decade and a half:

Imagine American’s celebrating workers, particularly in light of our country’s high unemployment rates which are a lot higher than our government reports.

Stats and economy aside, all across America, this holiday which was once symbolic for back to school, the end of the summer and the archaic fashion trend – where wearing white after Labor Day is a fashion faux pas – have all been passé for years. Fashion trends rarely pay attention to this rule.

Also back to school shopping is now done during the end of July and month of August.

According to Pantone Color Institute® "Fall 2017: the theme for fall is individuality and blends from a spectrum of Grenadine Red to Tawny Autumn Maple with a few surprise colors in-between will delight all fashionistas.  Image below includes the spectrum for PANTONE'S COLOR PICKS FOR FALL 2017.

Eight minute PANTONE FALL FASHION COLOR video below:

"Bookended by a dynamic Grenadine red and a tawny autumn Maple, the color palette for Fall 2017 leans more to warmth. While comforting enveloping colors and ease are crucial to the seasonal feeling, standout shades including a pale pink Ballet Slipper, a refreshing Golden Lime and a bright Marina blue. These hues add a striking touch when paired with classic autumnal shades of Navy Peony, Neutral Gray, Butterrum and Tweny Port."   ~~ Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute®

Will you be incorporating the Pantone 2017 Color of the Year in work and wardrobe?


Labor Day also marks the beginning of bargain shopping and also when sports excitement begins as the NFL and college football seasons begin.

For the many attentive parents and their children, it's the end of summer reading programs and making sure all of their children's book reports and other assignments are in order!


In a world of digital, it is also a great idea to use the internet for exciting news and interesting ideas. SchoolsNYC.org, SummerReading.org, and Scholastic.com are very helpful sites.

So much happens over the summer and discussing a few books (or just 1)that your child has read, (a simple question will do) is a great refresher and memory exercise. This also best prepares your child for the first day of school.

What about vacation? Talk about a great memory or event during summer family visits and travels.

HISTORY (sources: Wikipedia.org and HISTORY Channel)

One hundred and thirty three years ago (1882), Matthew Maguire, a machinist, first proposed the holiday while serving as secretary of the CLU (Central Labor Union) of New York. Others argue that it was first proposed by Peter J. McGuire of the American Federation of Labor in May 1882, after witnessing the annuallabour festival held in Toronto, Canada. Oregon was the first state to make it a holiday on February 21, 1887. By the time it became a federal holiday in 1894, thirty states officially celebrated Labor Day.

In the United States, Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.

In many countries, the working classes sought to make May Day an official holiday, and their efforts largely succeeded. In the United States and Canada, however, the official holiday for workers is Labor Day in September. This day was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, who organized the first parade in New York City.

After the Haymarket Massacre, US President Grover Cleveland feared that commemorating Labor Day on May 1 could become an opportunity to commemorate the affair. Thus, in 1887, it was established as an official holiday in September to support the Labor Day that the Knights favored.
