Ben and Daniel spoil The Umbrella Academy!
TIFF 2017: Cardinals Review
We talk to actors Dominic Purcell and Izaak Smith and director Damien Lee about their collaboration on the boxing film A Fighting Man, and about the film’s time shifting structure, how the characters very candidly relate to Purcell and Smith’s real life struggles, and why it took Lee almost twenty years to get around to making the film.
The Canadian indie drama Algonquin is a perfect example of a rare kind of film: the kind of idea that sounds terrible on paper or in a pitch, but one that works just fine in practice.
We talk to Jonathan Hayes, director of the Canadian drama Algonquin about the clashing egos within his film's characters, the concept of denial and distance within families, and how his film is now related directly to the work of Casablanca director Michael Curtiz.
