Into the Forest Review

Ellen Page and Evan Rachel Wood are in top form in Patricia Rozema's small scale survival tale Into the Forest.

The Call Review

For the first two thirds of it's running time The Call is a smart and clever B-movie proceedural that benefits from some great performances, but just like how a real life 911 operator very rarely finds out how a call ends after they hang up, you might not want to stick around to see how this thing ends.

This week, action and misery seem to be the themes as Andrew Parker takes on Shame and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, while Noah Taylor looks at The Divide, and Phil Brown watches Contraband

The Divide Review

The Divide is a psychological thriller about post-apocalyptic survival that is often horrifying and all around nightmarish. From claustrophobia to torture, radiation sickness and murder, this movie is intentionally void of anything that makes an audience feel comfortable or at ease for longer than one or two brief moments. On this level it's an achievement, but ultimately the story suffers from a shapeless script.

The Divide Review

The Divide is a psychological thriller about post-apocalyptic survival that is often horrifying and all around nightmarish. From claustrophobia to torture, radiation sickness and murder, the only thing comfortable about this movie was how snugly it fit into the middle of Toronto After Dark’s line-up.
