The Best of TIFF 2021

24 Sep 2021

THE BEST OF TIFF 2021

2021 marks the return of the Toronto International film Festival to in-persons screenings after the Pandemic limited last year’s TIFF to on-line only.  Yet the cinemas were empty due to capacity restrictions.  As would be expected, the quality of films this year is lacklustre, yet there are sufficient outstanding films that can make the Top 10 of any critics’s list.

Below are my TOP 10 of TIFF 2021.  For complete capsule descriptions of these films, please click on the link below:
