Everything I Wrote from TIFF 2019

21 09 2019

TIFF 2019 with sign.pngI always told myself that Marshall and the Movies would never become just a repository for links to pieces I’ve written elsewhere, and yet, here we are again…

I saw 35 films from the TIFF 2019 selection between screeners, pre-screenings and on-the-ground festival coverage. (I saw 23 films there in 5 days, for those curious!) I’m grateful as always to have a chance to share my thoughts on some of the most exciting new films debuting and getting an opportunity to help shape the early conversations around them. Thanks to the many editors who gave me the opportunity to contribute!

Since everyone is going to ask, my favorites were “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” “Knives Out” and “Waves.” Among the highest profile titles, I also really enjoyed “Jojo Rabbit,” “A Hidden Life,” “Just Mercy,” “Bad Education,” “Synchronic” and “Sound of Metal.” Some foreign-directed gems to look out for are “The Other Lamb,” “The County,” “Wet Season” and “The Audition.”
