TIFF is shaping up to be, well, TIFF. Every year there’s a deluge of movies we want to see, and then there’s a deluge on top of that deluge so that your schedule is pretty much hopeless when it comes to seeing all the movies you want to catch at the festival. It’s an embarrassment of riches, and TIFF just piled more movies into their Galas and Special Presentations lineup.
Notable additions to their lineup include Peter Farrelly’s first drama Green Book, Paul Greengrass’ terrorism drama 22 July, Joel Edgerton’s Boy Erased, Nick Hamm’s thriller Driven, Jeremy Saulnier’s Hold the Dark, Jonah Hill’s coming-of-age movie Mid90s, and Sam Taylor-Johnson’s adaptation of A Million Little Pieces.
That being said, I know I’m a little greedy because I can still see the major omissions that are popping up at other festivals like Suspiria, The Favourite, and more. But with those films slated to open this fall, I won’t have to wait too much longer to see them.
