    Having read your review, I now wished I hadn’t wimped out because of the weather and went to the Friday night screening I had a ticket for! That being said, I now question the validity of TIFF’s Top 10; how can a work that’s still in progress be deemed Top 10? All credibility with the TIFF lists is now questionable. It would be like the N.Y.Times reviewing that a book and stating it is the best of the year and…oh yeah…only read half of it and the author still isn’t sure how he wants to end it!!!

      Thanks for reading and do see the film when it eventually comes out this year. To be fair to TIFF and the director, the version that played at the festival and that was ultimately awarded a place in Canada’s Top 10 was finished. It is just that the film was bought by an American distributor at TIFF and the film is now testing with a new ending. It was originally shot for the film but Dowse went with the TIFF cut. The distributor is asking to test the new ending and title but the film was “finished” when it was considered for this list.

    Good review. Will be looking out for this when it has its theatrical release.

    Joseph – re your reply above, has the movie been tampered with since its TIFF debut? Inquiring minds want to know!
