The 50 buzziest films of TIFF 2012: we slice through the hype so you don’t have to

The 50 buzziest films of TIFF 2012
Single tickets for the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival go on sale this Sunday, September 2. And with a record 372 films being screened (146 of them world premieres), it can be daunting trying to figure out which ones are actually worth the $20 (or $40, for galas and special presentations) and hours in line. The solution: our guide to the 50 most talked-about movies at the festival this year, in which we scrutinize the advance hype (and the buzz from Sundance, Berlin, Cannes and Venice) to separate the must-sees from the flicks that only a mother could love.

TIFF Teaser: Passion, Brian de Palma’s film about a really bad (but really sexy) boss

Brian de Palma’s recent efforts (The Black Dahlia, Mission to Mars) may not have lived up to his earlier works, but we’re still hoping that Passion will be a renaissance for the director. Noomi Rapace plays a young businesswoman who must contend with the sadistic mind games of her boss (Rachel McAdams)—mind games which apparently include girl-on-girl make-outs and shadowy boudoirs straight from the set of Eyes Wide Shut. This Sapphic game of cat-and-mouse follows the (successful) formula of Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan: Oscar-nominated director, professional intrigue, murder and a much-talked-about lesbian love scene that will crowd the lines at your local arthouse cinema with high-fiving frat boys.

More images revealed of Rachel McAdams on the set of Brian De Palma’s Passion (and they’re so, so weird)

Not too long ago, we revealed the first image from Brian De Palma’s Passion: a steamy shot of Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace on the verge of making out. Now, new images have been made public from the set, including McAdams looking sinister in a shower (what is she thinking?), adorning a creepy mask akin to the Nip/Tuck carver’s and a titillating look-at-how-irritated-I-am-sitting-around-in-expensive-lingerie shot. This movie is going to be weird (and probably amazing).

A super-sexy image of Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace, from Brian De Palma’s film Passion, is revealed

Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace (Image: Still from Passion)

Brian De Palma’s Passion, set to debut at the Cannes Film Festival, looks absolutely steamy. The first image from the movie was revealed this week, and understandably it involves castmates Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace on the verge of making out. (It is a film tease, after all.) The movie is an erotic thriller set in the world of international finance, with money- and power-hungry Christine (McAdams) playing games with her innocent, lovely and easily exploited protégé Isabelle (Rapace). Of course, while a film about seduction, manipulation, dominance and humiliation would be good on its own, there’s also the addition of a murder plot to look forward to. Could it be? A film sexier than this summer’s Cosmopolis?
