TIFF 2008 Day 6

Flash of Genius
David and Goliath story of the man who invented the intermittent windshield wiper and the Ford Motor Company who stole his invention. Solid performances and emotionally gripping. 8/10

The Wrestler
A professional wrestler, 20 years past his prime, tries to find his place in life outside of the ring, but has difficulty. Terrific performances by Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei, and very intense wrestling matches. 9/10

Director Darren Aronofsky

Nothing but the Truth
Inspired by the Valerie Plame affair, this story focuses on the reporter who refuses to relinquish the identity of her source, and the consequences of those actions. Well executed with a great ending. 8.5/10

Director Rod Lurie
