This is actually the second week in which I've been all excited to see This Must Be the Place but it hasn't been at the shop. Last week was understandable, since I got the release dates mixed up. Today wasn't, because it was actually supposed to come out tomorrow, but it is M.I.A. Instead, I only have The Lady and The Woman in Black to watch. This week's release slate is so funny - on one hand we have The Lady and The Woman in Black, and on the other we have Man on a Ledge and Men in Black 3. And then we have The Woman in Black and Men in Black 3. Of course I'd notice that.

I'm not very into fragrance advertisements but oh wow, this has melted my heart. Like, after I saw it, I made a point of wearing white and purple to the show. Jessica Chastain is the most beautiful woman in the world. End of story. And the fact that this is made by Nicolas Winding Refn also excites me.
As per usual, Ryan's TIFF coverage was fantastic. One day I'm gonna get there. One day.
Also at TIFF with some brilliant coverage was Tom Clift. And now he's off to soak up some more festival goodness. Which makes me feel sad because I didn't even go to the NZFF.
While I've been working hard at Little Shop of Horrors, Ruth has been working hard at a short film project, Weeding In. Check out her behind-the-scenes post.
Scott reviews Dredd, which I'm surprisingly looking forward to seeing - mainly because our man Karl Urban is doing so well for himself.
Alex, who also happens to be the blog of the month, has a couple of lists of the most game-changing Best Picture winners and the least deserving winners. I love Oscar-y lists.
A little while back Mette looked at the colourful costumes from The Wizard of Oz. Now there's a show I'd love to do.
Nikhat offers up three mini reviews on Margaret, 2 Days in New York and Bachelorette - three films which I really look forward to seeing, especially the latter.
The Kid in the Front Row takes a look back at Cemetery Junction, one of the most underrated films like, ever.
After TIFF happened, what is now hot on your radar? Mine is currently Silver Linings Playbook, although I'm now extra excited for The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Looper, Dredd, Cloud Atlas, Much Ado About Nothing, The Place Beyond the Pines, Rust and Bone, Seven Psychopaths and Smashed.
