    Here’s the full #TIFF14 Mission List: 16 films to see at the Toronto International Film Festival.

    All 16 titles on the Mission List are world premiere feature-length films. All are currently without distribution in Canada or the US. I’ve chosen no more than two films per country, and all films,…

    We need to transform the way we see the world through films.

    Looking forward to #TIFF, who will I shoot this year? #ViggoMortensen #easternpromises #ahistoryofviolence #hidalgo #cuervo #blackandwhite #portrait #celebrity #actor #toronto #tiff2014

    Toronto International Film Festival 2014 will become a memorable event.

    Viggo brings his amazing work ‘Loin des Hommes’, Mr. Cumberbatch crowned with remarkable performance shows us ‘The Imitation Game’, brilliant writer / director Bennett Miller’s new masterpiece ‘Foxcatcher’ appears and David Cronenberg welcomes them with ‘Maps to the Stars’.

    TIFF 2014 looks like cinematic paradise.

    ‘What I Believe’ from Interzone, #8, Summer 1984.

    A prose poem, originally published in French

    via: jgballard.ca

    “In a totally sane society, madness is the only freedom.” from ‘Running Wild’

    Our past sin (I’m a Japanese…) forced JIm Graham (J.G.Ballard) into a tight corner and gave him a terrible pain. But ironically enough, his unique ideology, sense of values and aesthetics have been made by our shameful history of war (World War II). In his mind, Western culture and Eastern culture have been united with each other, I think. His painful experience in a concentration camp has given him a gift for writing.

    If you don’t read his autobiographical novel ‘Empire of the Sun’, please read it or watch the movie directed by Steven Spielberg.

    Anyway, I am very sorry for Ballard’s tough boyhood.

    ….I’m ashamed of my country.

    ヴィゴさまっ!!セクシーすぎるーーー!

    My favorite Viggo….

    Aztec Camera, Crowded House, Sinéad O’Connor,… good old 80’s….

    I love their ‘Four Seasons in One Day’ too. Delicate and beautiful melody.

    X+Y, directed by Morgan Matthews. UK 

    Number 14 of 16 films on The Mission List.

    If you’re looking for a movie that just makes you feel good, see X+Y. This story about a math prodigy on the autism spectrum is warm, funny and deeply emotional. More than feel good, this British film also makes you imagine what you’re capable of.

    Get more information on X+Yhere at the TIFF website.

    Here’s where you can see X+Y:

    Fri, Sep 5, 9:00pm Ryerson

    Sun, Sep 7, 12:15pm TIFF Bell Lightbox Cinema 2

    Sun, Sep 14, 3:30pm Scotiabank Theatre Cinema 1

    The Mission List: 16 films to see at the Toronto International Film Festival

    All 16 titles on the Mission List are world premiere feature-length films. All are currently without distribution in Canada or the US. I’ve chosen no more than two films per country, and all films, in my view, fulfill TIFF’s mission:

    Transform the way people see the world through film.
