Louder Than Bombs TIFF 2015 review

Although a taut thriller like Night Moves is a change of pace for normally minimalist director Kelly Reichardt, it's even more thrilling thanks to her knack for slow burning character work.

The Double Special Presentation Director: Richard Ayoade After starting his directorial career with a pitch perfect recreation of bad 80s television in Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, Richard Ayoade has slid into to feature filmmaking by mimicking much artier affair.
