    ★★★½

    this years tiff had an odd series of director's attempting to try new genres but this seems to be the most successful of them all.

    he announced his newest film after the screening so let's hope he returns to form.

    “Remember when we first came here? We talked about our big life plan.”

    Looking for me, has always been a VERY personal show. The show was on air during my last two years of high school, when I still was closeted in the bigoted purgatory that…
