TIFF 2010: It’s a Wrap

Monday, September 20th, 2010

I saw some films that surprised me (The Illusionist, A Night for Dying Tigers), some that were disappointing (Hereafter, Miral) and some that took my breath away with their vision and execution (Black Swan, I Saw the Devil).

After a full day of travel, I finally landed in Toronto around 10PM tonight.
