  1. Kickstarter Films at TIFF 2014

    If you're thinking about heading to the Toronto International Film Festival this week, you might already have a very long list of films you want to check out. Or maybe you're just putting one together now. Or maybe you're feeling really wild, and plan on rolling the dice and drifting from screen to screen, hoping to discover some gems. Well: as is increasingly common these days, there are a few Kickstarter-funded films being shown at TIFF this year, and they're all very much worth seeing, whether you already planned to or not. May we suggest one of the films below?

    Ned Rifle by Hal Hartley

    Ned Rifle is the final film in Hal Hartley's Henry Fool trilogy (the previous two films Henry Fool and Fay Grim are on Netflix if you want to catch up), which concludes Hartley's look at the lives of the Grim Family, a troubled group that lives in Woodside, Queens. There's plenty of familial strife, all of it worth watching. See when and where you can watch it right here.
