Noel Murray and Scott Tobias of The AV Club share their picks from the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival. They discuss Sylvain Chomet’s The Illusionist, which is animated from a script by Jacques Tati. Also: Darren Aronofsky’s latest, Black Swan, which stars Natalie Portman as a ballerina struggling to find the passion to play the Black Swan in Swan Lake. In The Trip, director Michael Winterbottom supervises an impression-off between British comics Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.
They also say they had a number of disappointments at the festival, including It’s Kind of a Funny Story (despite a great turn from Zach Galifianakis) and Danny Boyle’s latest, 127 Hours. They also didn’t like the seriocomic Will Ferrel vehicle Everything Must Go.
