Toronto Film Festival Video Blog #1: Labor Day, The Fifth Estate And Blue Is The Warmest Color

Now we’re hitting our stride. When you can schedule back-to-back screenings of Jason Reitman’s satisfying Labor Day with Jean-Marc Vallee’s eye-opening Dallas Buyers Club, you know that the Toronto International Film Festival finally is firing on all cylinders.

I’ll have a full review of Dallas Buyers on the site Saturday afternoon. In the meantime, I took a break in-between screenings to fill you in on Reitman’s latest – a definite step toward maturity for the Juno and Up In the Air director – as well as the Palme d’Or winner Blue is the Warmest Color, and more on Bill Condon’s The Fifth Estate.

Toronto coverage rolls on. I really appreciate you tracking this year’s festival through Cinema Blend. Plenty more to come:
