TIFF 2011:

We Need to Talk about Kevin was my favorite film of those I caught at this years’ Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF 2011). Directed by Lynne Ramsay and starring Tilda Swinton, the film is based on the novel by Lionel Shriver.

I also enjoyed Tyrannosaur (the directing debut of actor Paddy Considine), Take Shelter (directed by Jeff Nichols and starring Jessica Chastain and Michael Shannon), The Hunter (directed by Daniel Nettheim and starring Willem Dafoe), and Melancholia (directed by Lars Von Trier and starring Kirsten Dunst, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Kiefer Sutherland and Alexander Skarsgård).
