Toronto Film Festival 2014

The Judge

  • Rated as: 3/5

Robert Downey Jr. stars in the sort of legal drama that shouts where it could whisper and stomps where it could tiptoe—not always disagreeably

The Drop

  • Rated as: 3/5

European actors (including future Mad Max Tom Hardy) do an uneven job bringing a "hey-yous-guys" Brooklyn crime drama to life.


  • Rated as: 5/5

Viciously funny, it twins the frenetic hunt for shocking footage with the career ambitions of a closet psycho, played by Jake Gyllenhaal.


  • Rated as: 3/5

One imagines the scariest thing to Kevin Smith would be the inability to speak—and that's exactly what he explores in this captivatingly weird horror-comedy.

The Equalizer

  • Rated as: 1/5

There’s some sad math happening when Hollywood tries to equalize one of its most distinctive leading men with generic action parts that even Liam Neeson would scowl at.

Men, Women & Children

  • Rated as: 2/5

An ensemble-acted shriek on the topic of Internet overconsumption, it's the first Jason Reitman film to make the director seem about 400 years old.


  • Rated as: 3/5

Reese Witherspoon seizes onto the role of Cheryl Strayed, spiritually broken and hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, with the talons of a hawk looking for shiny objects below.

The Duke of Burgundy

  • Rated as: 4/5

Britain’s Peter Strickland is a star student of '70s Eurotrash: He turns the soft-focus lesbian cuddling that once titillated weirdos on 42nd Street into something deeper.


  • Rated as: 3/5

Often on fire behind his Daily Show desk, Jon Stewart turns out to be a merely okay director, judging from this sincere yet serviceable political drama.
