Film Review: ‘The Guilty’ (dir. Antoine Fuqua) | TIFF 2021

It’s a simple enough premise, but what is done within the timeframe of this film honestly made for some of the most thrilling, intense, fully consuming work I’ve ever seen.

Film Review: ‘The Starling’ (dir. Theodore Melfi) | TIFF 2021

Grief comes in all of shapes and sizes. I thought The Starling took a very thoughtful approach to tackling such a sensitive topic but in an effectively touching yet humorous way. When it doesn’t take itself too seriously, it’s firing on all cylinders in the best of ways.

Film Review: ‘The Electrical Life of Louis Wain’ (dir. Will Sharpe) | TIFF 2021

The quirkiness is dialed up to ten, and it’s all the better for it. That just makes the sadness at the center of it all feel all the more whimsical.

Film Review: ‘The Wheel’ (dir. Steve Pink) | TIFF 2021

Relationships are hard. There are challenges that are unique to every pair of two people, especially when there’s something putting that relationship at a strain. The Wheel is at its best when it paints an honest picture through that lens.

Film Review: ‘Scarborough’ (dir. Shasha Nakhai + Rich Williamson) | TIFF 2021

This is going to sound super abstract, but Scarborough is a film about what it means to be human. It’s so real that it’s unreal. Realer than life. There is a whole world within this film. I grew so attached to these characters, and I went on the emotional rollercoaster that these characters took me on.
