2014 Toronto Film Festival

2014 Toronto Film Festival Screening Schedule

I could be looking at 25+ new reviews in the next week

2014 Toronto Film Festival LineupIt's that time of year again and after missing this year's Cannes Film Festival, this will serve as my first and only time on the festival circuit since last year's Toronto Film Festival and my screening schedule is finally coming together.

To give you a better idea of what reviews to look forward to and approximately when you can expect them I'm posting my estimated schedule below along with a list of the six films from the festival that I've already seen and will be posting the reviews during the fest. You'll notice on the schedule there are a few films listed in bold red text, these are the screenings with scheduling conflicts. So if you see a film listed twice or in bold red text that's the reason.

Now let's have a look...

All told I could be looking at seeing somewhere around 23 movies, which combined with the six I've already seen is damned impressive. The likelihood of me seeing that many is a little slim as fatigue always sets in, but it's nice to dream... at least as I'm typing this on my way to Chicago right now... Stay tuned, there are a lot of reviews to come.

    I'm so fu*king jealous!

    I love this time of the year - excited for the reviews to start rolling in. Have a safe flight.

    That's a packed schedule...it's gotta be hard to get get in the right mindset to fully absord a movie when you have to go through 4 in a row type days.
    Have fun, looking forward to the reviews.

  • bramb600

    I'm seeing 27-32 or so.

    This is indeed a jealousy-inducing lineup, you lucky duck! It'll be a blast. But a couple of questions.... After having done 31 films in 6 days at SX last year, I know what a slog it can be by the end. Q: Will you be writing reviews for all of them and if so, where will you find the time, assuming you'll have to wait in line, eat and sleep at some point?

    I'm looking forward to The Look Of Silence, which is the follow up to The Act Of Killing, Red Army and Tales Of The Grim Sleeper. There's some wonderful docs this year.

  • MajorFilmFan

    I'm ridiculously jealous! I definitely want to see Men, Women and Children, Wild, The Imitation Game, Pawn Sacrifice, Foxcatcher, among others. But the movie I'm most intrigued to see is 99 Homes. After his mediocre 2013 film, I'm hoping "Homes" is a return to form for Bahrani. Hope you get to fit it into your schedule, Brad

    Always look forward to your festival coverage Brad!

  • MajorFilmFan

    I'm intrigued to see your reviews of Men, Women and Children and the Cobbler. I actually think Adam Sandler is a decent actor, given the right material. Punch Drunk Love, while not one of my favorite movies, is a movie I'm not afraid to admit I enjoy. Hell, even his more serious/darker comedies like Click and Spanglish are better than 99% of his "creative" output over the last decade. I really hope this is the year he can prove that he really CAN be a decent actor.

    Brad, You are not seeing St. Vincent ? I thought it was among your most anticipated.

    • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/ Brad Brevet

      I have some requests in for a separate screening, just waiting to see how it pans out. The only press screening is on the 12th, after I've left.

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/TheLastEquivocationofBrist/ Michael

    Hope you have an awesome time at the festival! Your coverage will help let me know what movies to look forward to whenever they actually play near me.

    "Then it's off to see Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children of which I'm getting more and more excited to see."

    That's what I like to hear. ;)

    Also, that looks like a potentially stellar Monday.

  • BradyD

    Have fun, big guy. Looking forward to your reviews.

    Brad, if you wanted to skip The Search for something more interesting, I wouldn't blame you. I doubt it'll get too many clicks, since it's already played at Cannes, and I've heard nothing but bad things. You shouldn't have to suffer through that.

    I'm pretty jelly Brad.

  • Steve C

    Can't wait to read all the reviews. Good luck Brad .

  • http://reelprojection.com/ GothamCity151

    A little disappointed you won't be seeing The Last 5 Years, as I'm very curious as to what you will think of it. I look forward to all the reviews, Brad!

  • Justin Golding

    Are you not going to get to see The Cobbler Brad?

  • http://www.ropeofsilicon.com/profile/TheLastEquivocationofBrist/ Michael

    Looks like your Tuesday got abbreviated :(
