TIFF 2018: Widows Is A Better Kind Of Heist Film

Widows

Widows

While Liam Neeson is in the new film Widows by ace director Steve McQueen it’s important to note that nobody in his family gets kidnapped, requiring him to embark on an elaborate revenge quest.

In fact, Neeson’s quite secondary in Widows, as it focuses on Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez and Elizabeth Debicki, the partners of a failed heist crew who now have to take over where their men left off.

Sarah loved this film when she saw it at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.

Living A Real-Life Twin Peaks

RIP Laura Palmer

RIP Laura Palmer

When Twin Peaks debuted in 1990 it basically launched a genre — pretty blonde girl gets murdered in small town, everything goes bonkers.

But what if you actually lived in a real town where something like that happened?

Sarah did. She lived in Welland, Ontario around the time the truly evil pair of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka were terrorizing the Niagara area.

She wrote about what it was like at that time in a feature story for Consequence of Sound’s Twin Peaks Week series.

La La Land

La La Land

Big deal Hollywood musical film La La Land is making all sorts of film critics swoon at the notion of romantic old school sing-dance movies.

Sarah, the half of Team Risky Fuel who doesn’t think such movies are stupid, calls the film “gorgeous, often delightful, and quite satisfying.”

Mascots

Mascots

Christopher Guest, the master of the mockumentary, has released a new film covering the world of competitive mascotting called, coincidentally, Mascots.

The film will break little new ground for anyone familiar with the likes of Best In Show and A Mighty Wind. But what it does showcase is a master at his craft once again creating something solidly entertaining.

Sarah reviewed the film for Consequence Of Sound.
