Episode 147

11th October 2010

Noel Murray and Scott Tobias of The AV Club share their picks from the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival.

Episode notes

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.

Noel and Scott joined us from CIUT in Toronto – our thanks to the station and to Chris Berube, who engineered our session.
