Gloom and doom or freedom and connection? Inescapability of capitalist commercial society or existential forging of community? I think Kaufman's Lisa, the surprising beauty, is a statement that solipsism is not man's fate.
I saw three films in a row today at the Toronto International Film Festival that have generated heavy buzz in the early festival days of fall - and found that none of them actually has the makings of the awards-season juggernauts they're being touted as. In other words, don't believe the hype.
