TIFF 2017 - First Reviews.

Sep. 14th, 2017 10:38 pm

[personal profile] przed
We're well past the halfway mark for this year's film festival, so I thought I'd put up a couple of mini reviews of stuff seen so far.

Call Me By Your Name
This had great buzz coming out of Sundance, and it was not misplaced. It's a story of summer love, with precocious 17-year-old falling for his dad's 23 year-old grad student. It's also a gay love story without any coming out panic or inevitable tragic ending. And it's utterly gorgeous, set in and around a villa in northern Italy. The cast is uniformly wonderful, especially Armie Hammer as the grad student and Timothée Chalumet as the teen, but also Michael Stuhlbaarg as the main character's father, who has a lovely scene at the end showing his empathy for his son and his first love. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

I became a tennis fan watching Borg play at Wimbledon every year, so I was very much looking forward to this movie, examining his rivalry on the court with bad boy John McEnroe. And it was honestly everything I was hoping it was. There are flashbacks to both men as kids, coming up in the game, and a look at how their rivalry developed, but it all comes down to the insane Wimbledon final they played in 1980. The actor playing Borg, Sverrir Gudnason, is a dead ringer for Borg, and Shia LeBeouf was unexpectedly good as McEnroe. I've heard people in festival lines say they found it a bit dull, but those people are WRONG.

I, Tonya
This was my one ridiculous indulgence for the fest. I paid to see the premium screening of this biopic of figure skater Tonya Harding solely because Sebastian Stan is in it and I wanted to see him in person. But it turns out, the movie is really good and is getting great word at the fest. I put up an incredibly long post about the screening and my thoughts on the film on Tumblr, along with a pic I took of Stan and his co-star, Margot Robbie, but the short version is it's dark and funny and will make you really feel for what Harding went through in her life.

The Big Bad Fox and Other Tales
We managed to talk Ros into seeing this film in the kids sidebar at the fest. It's a French animated film with a Looney Tunes feel, and it's really fun. The trailer gives a good sense of its inspired lunacy. And as a bonus for me, the first of the three stories has a baby called Pauline! (My name is only popular in France, it seems.)

Submitting Your Drafts

Posted by krisserci5

Hi all.. . the time grows near . . .to begin thinking about . . .yes, you must think about . . Submitting Your Drafts!

As we are now getting ever closer to our deadline of 23rd September we thought we'd put up the details of what you need to do to submit your stories and art.


Send your completed story to the following email address:

Please use the following naming convention for the file:


We're expecting that your draft is complete at this point, though you can definitely tweak before your posting date.


Please send the rough draft of your art to the same addresses above. It's not necessary to have completed art by this point (though that would be lovely) but we would like to know that you're on the way to finishing.

Writers and Artists

Since our next step is to create the posting schedule, please let us know if there are any dates that we should absolutely avoid giving you.

We want to make sure everyone has a date they're comfortable with, and one on which they can easily get their story or art up.

We’ll do our best to accommodate any requests, but we’d like everyone to appreciate that we're aiming to spread the stories out as evenly as possible throughout the month.

Next steps

Once we have everyone's stories and art, we will be putting together the posting schedule. And when that's done, we'll be emailing everyone their posting date, along with details of how to create a post at ci5_boxoftricks with links to whichever location you’ve chosen to post your story and art to (LJ, Dreamwidth, The Automated Hatstand, AO3, etc).

Drop us a line at the address above if you have any questions or issues.

Thanks once again to everyone for participating. We can't wait to see everyone's contributions to the challenge.
