The Fifth Estate

Daniel Brühl and Benedict Cumberbatch in ‘The Fifth Estate,’ the opening film of this year’s edition

Once known as “The Festival of Festivals,” Toronto‘s the sort of event that you need to start indexing even before each edition begins. This year, while I carry on monitoring critical reaction, we’ll also have our own dispatchers, so: links from titles will take you to fresh, fall festival season roundups; links from other festival names (Cannes, nine times out of ten) will take you to earlier roundups; and links from the names of actual people will take you to our reviews, interviews, and so on.
