TIFF Grades — Day 10
CALIFORNIA DREAMIN, Cristian Nemescu, Romania — 6
ANGEL, Francois Ozon, France — 8
THE SUN ALSO RISES, Jiang Wen, China — 5
MY WINNIPEG, Guy Maddin, Canada — 8
JUST LIKE HOME, Lone Sherfig, Denmark — 3
So that’s everything I saw in this year’s TIFF. The grades make it clear that this was a pretty awesome festival, as expected and hyped. Of the 44 films seen, I have five films graded at 9 and another seven at 8 (plus THE VIRGIN SPRING). With only two films graded lower than 3. By contrast, in 2004 (probably the worst year since I started going), I had only two 9-grades, five 8-grades, with another five grades lower than 3.
I’ll get started on the three remaining days of capsules, plus one essay, when I get back to Washington on Sunday, Morpheus willing.
