Anticipating Toronto, 8/29.

Toronto International Film Festival Update: Michael Guillén's had to tweak the page that bore his review of David Cronenberg's Eastern Promises due to a frustrating set of circumstances - i.e., 'tain't his fault - and for now, I refer you to Tom Huddleston at Not Coming to a Theater Near You, where he writes, "this is terrific, completely ludicrous but utterly enthralling, taking the pseudo-subversive preoccupations of it's predecessor and running with them."

Updated.

More from Fabfunk at AICN: "I would say it's one of his weaker films, but even his least charitable critics have to admit that this one has a strong hold."

Next stop: Twitch's gargantuan "One Stop TIFF Trailer Shop," sorted by program. Yowza.

Jonathan Rosenbaum picks three films he's looking forward to catching in Toronto. And that's just one quick entry picked from the roaring Doc Blog. Picking up these days are the Canadian Film Programmes Blog, the Continental Drift Blog, the Midnight Madness Blog and the actually quite hopping South Facing Blog. Then, of course, there are all these. September 6 through 15.

Tom Hall's looking forward to Shira Geffen and Etgar Keret's Meduzot (Jellyfish). Related: Cannes reviews of the Camera d'Or winner.

And now's a good time to be tracking TIFFReviews.com.
