TIFF ’10: Additional thoughts on Aronofsky’s ‘Black Swan’

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: So “The King’s Speech” didn’t happen. But it gave me time to come back to the room and write. Since “Black Swan” has been on my mind from the minute it ended this morning, I wanted to try and elaborate more on its power, its sheer force,[...]

TIFF ’10: ‘The King’s Speech,’ here I come?

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: This worked for me this morning with “Black Swan,” so as I attempt to work my way into another anticipated screening, I’m going to post to the site and see if the TIFF gods are smiling down on me. Because Toronto is stacked with buzzworthy titles, it’s possible[...]

TIFF ’10: Others weigh in on ‘Black Swan,’ Bardem’s ‘Biutiful’ performance

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: Every once in a while, screenings have to be sacrificed to make way for writing time. Today’s schedule drastically shifted following “Black Swan,” after Katey Rich of Cinema Blend warned me off one movie (thanks, Katie) and Drew McWeeny of HitFix directed me to toward another (thanks, Drew). And[...]

Freida Pinto film ‘Miral’ a hard sell for Weinsteins

HollywoodNews.com: After wowing award season voters with his 2007 title “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,” director Julian Schnabel’s “Miral” looks to stir some agita for the Weinstein Company.

TIFF ’10: ‘Black Swan’ blows me away

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: I have no time. Absolutely none. I’m running to the next screening. But I tweeted the following on Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan,” and wanted to share it with you here: @Sean_OConnell BLACK SWAN: Unreal. Aronofsky is the master of those consumed by their ambitious dreams. Hard to imagine[...]

TIFF ’10: ‘Black Swan,’ here I come?

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: I’m trying my best to meticulously plan out TIFF 2010. A fest this size easily can get away from you if you don’t stay disciplined. And I made it through Day One – a four-movie-in-three-venues day — with no hiccups, even though one venue changed at the[...]

TIFF ’10: ‘Conviction’ fights the good fight, while ‘Never Let Me Go’ offers sci-fi from the heart

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: Sometimes you know exactly what you are going to get from a film before you even step foot in the theater. Tony Goldwyn’s “Conviction” delivers that type of movie-going experience. What you see in the official synopsis is what you will see on the screen. Nothing more,[...]

TIFF ’10: Affleck anchors ‘The Town,’ and there’s real beauty in ‘Biutiful’

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: A bleak start to the Toronto International Film Festival … not due to quality, but due to content. I don’t have time to dig too deeply into either film from this morning, as I’m running out the door to an evening double feature. But here are quick[...]

TIFF ’10: Day One brings Bardem’s ‘Biutiful,’ Ben’s ‘The Town’ and ‘Never Let Me Go’

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: And so it begins. I’m heading out the door, diving into the 35th Toronto International Film Festival. I’m looking at four- and five-film days initially, so reports will be short and infrequent. Unless there’s wireless internet access at the Scotiabank. (Oh please, TIFF gods, let there be wireless[...]

TIFF ’10: Diving into The Book on the night before the fest

By Sean O’Connell Hollywoodnews.com: This is my first official report from the 35th Toronto International Film Festival. Some posts will be short. Others will be long. This one will remain brief because, well, the festival doesn’t start until tomorrow. But this evening, I’m hunkering down with The Book. Though this is my[...]
