TIFF 2010 Day 5

I’m back at the Elgin for “Another Year”, and looking forward to chocolate.

Here are the Lindt girls

Back in the Elgin. Hey, there's Yakov

Another Year
A year in the life of Tom and Gerri, a happy and balanced couple whose circle of friends all seem to have dysfunctional relationships. Outstanding performances, especially Jim Broadbent, and terrific characters… but ultimately this is a slice of life movie, and I really detest slice of life movies. They have no plot cohesion and no endings, and this film is no exception. The director and actors were in attendance, but oddly enough there was no Q&A. 5/10.

John Carpenter’s The Ward
Five girls are confined to a psychiatric institution and… it’s haunted! Ooooh, scary. Mostly standard fare scare fest, but with a pretty good ending (it would have been better had I not seen a similar ending in a different film). I’m glad that he’s finally chosen a younger, fresher cast, and didn’t score the film himself. The old ways were good back in the day, but Carpenter has needed to move on for a long long time and it’s great that he’s finally been able to do it; he’s got a better film for it. Carpenter was not able to attend the screening in person ;^( due to jury duty, but he did send a video message for the audience. 6/10
