TIFF 2011 gets a closer and 100 more films


The world premiere of Machine Gun Preacher, starring Gerard Butler, has been announced as a gala at TIFF.

TIFF 2011 gets a closing night film and also a host of new star-laden attractions as the festival announces more than 100 new elements of its Sept. 8-18 lineup.

We’ll likely see Toronto appearances by Robert De Niro, Catherine Deneuve, Shahid Kapoor, Nicole Kidman, Nicolas Cage, Clive Owen, Bill Nighy, Andy Serkis, Rachel Weisz, Gerard Butler, Ralph Fiennes, Isabelle Huppert, Saoirse Ronan and James Gandolfini, among many others. (The full list of some 500 celebrity TIFF visitors is scheduled for release Aug. 23.)

David Hare’s Page Eight, the British director’s first feature in 14 years, will bring down the TIFF curtain Sept. 18 with a thriller about a veteran MI5 officer (Nighy) forced to confront 21st-century security threats.

It’s one of eight new Galas, most of them world premieres, as TIFF locks in its most popular program. The other Gala additions are:

Killer Elite (Gary McKendry): Tough guys Robert De Niro, Clive Owen and Jason Statham share the screen, and the explosions, in this globetrotting adventure of retired spies vs. bad guys.

Machine Gun Preacher (Marc Forster): Gerard Butler stars as a reformed drug dealer who becomes a saviour of kidnapped and orphaned children. (The film was previously announced as a Special Presentation.)

Trespass (Joel Schumacher): Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman team as husband and wife for this home-invasion drama.

Beloved (Christophe Honoré): Catherine Deneuve and Chiara Mastroianni star in this “elegy to femininity and passion with musical outbursts” set in 1960s Paris and modern-day London.

Hysteria (Tanya Wexler): Laughs, and maybe a few blushes, are promised in this rom-com about the man who invented the first electro-mechanical vibrator. Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hugh Dancy, Jonathan Pryce and Rupert Everett share the buzz.

The Awakening (Nick Murphy): A ghost thriller tantalizingly compared to The Others and The Orphanage, about a séance debunker (Rebecca Hall) called to investigate troubling matters at a boys’ boarding school. Dominic West and Imelda Staunton co-star.

Winnie (Darrell J. Roodt): Saint or sinner? A study of the puzzle of Winnie Mandela, whose struggle for democracy in South Africa often took different and more controversial paths than that of her ex-husband Nelson. Jennifer Hudson, Terrence Howard, Elias Koteas and Wendy Crewson star.

The festival also announced 18 more Special Presentations, completing the roster of another top section. The additions include Ian FitzGibbon’s Death of a Superhero, which will likely bring a visit from CGI star Andy Serkis (Rise of the Planet of the Apes); Whit Stillman’s Damsels in Distress, the first film in 13 years from this American cultural chronicler; and Julia Leigh’s arresting debut Sleeping Beauty, which rocked the Cannes competition with its disturbing sexual frankness.

Other notable films and directors added to this critic’s choice section include The Cardboard Village (Ermanno Olmi), In Darkness (Agnieszka Holland), Life Without Principle (Johnnie To), Mausam (Seasons of Love) (Pankaj Kapoor), Rebellion (Mathieu Kassovitz) and Wuthering Heights (Andrea Arnold).

The festival also announced 51 additions to its Contemporary World Cinema program. Highlights include the Cannes competition entry Footnote (Joseph Cedar), the recent Locarno hit Goodbye First Love (Mia Hansen-Løve) and the Cuban-set zombie Juan of the Dead (Alejandro Brugués),

TIFF also announced the lineup for its mainstream-provoking Visions section, which includes ALPS by Greece’s Yorgos Lanthimos, director of the critically acclaimed Dogtooth.

And the festival unveiled selections for its adventurous Wavelengths and Future Projections sections. The latter includes two installations that will likely attract many mainstream viewers: Memories of Idaho, by James Franco and Gus Van Sant, in which actor Franco and director Van Sant roam creatively over memories of My Own Private Idaho; and Mr. Brainwash in Toronto, a spray-can statement by the central figure of the hit Banksy doc Exit Through the Gift Shop.

She doesn't know which end is up, so to speak.

Nay, vibrators are not electric toothbrushes. Where did the "teeth fall out" comment come from? Do you see words that are not there?

Julie, you asked me a sensible question (unlike DK and Dallas) so here is where I was going with the metaphor ...

banging your bones so hard (while #crewing) that your teeth fall out.

Nothing to do with bits up north or down south or toilets running anti-clockwise or seeing words that aren't there or even hearing voices!

I knew what you meant.

But it was more fun to make fun of you being all backwards, upside down and down under, my little Aussie pet.

Hehe...she said "down under".

I'm going to patent a backwards rotating vibrator and call it Nay.

The Nay 5000. Servicing ladies since 2011. Available at a Walmart near you. (In the electronics section because that's where they sell the batteries.)

Once you go backwards, you'll never go forward again.

All this in The Machine Gun Preacher thread.

I still have all my non-wisdom adult teeth. I must be missing something.

Speechless.



Oh wait ...

Dallas - I see shoes and a bonfire.
DK - I see Gerald licking your cheek and picking his nose simultaneously.
