TIFF BUZZ POLL: which film are you most excited to see?
After we narrowed down the 372 films screening at TIFF to the buzziest 50, we started wondering which movie sits at the top of the heap. Cloud Atlas has a stacked ensemble cast, a rousing five-minute-long trailer and some highly regarded literary source material to live up to, but On the Road has an even more beloved literary antecedent (and, in Kristen Stewart, a star with very devoted fans). Then there’s Looper, starring Bruce Willis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, which has netted the (free) hype that stems from opening the festival. Of course, The Master has many expecting standout performances from Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman—not to mention its Church of Scientology-tinged subject matter.
