TIFF11 Reviews: Wim Wender's Pina , U2 Doc From the Sky Down
Yesterday was Day 1 of TIFF, but it was more of a strange half day where we only watched two movies and only one that had its TIFF premiere, which was Wim Wender's Pina . For whatever reason, TIFF's opening night seeme to be off on a German kick, between that and the Opening Night Selection, Davis Guggenheim's U2 portrait From the Sky Down , which focuses on their "Achtung Baby" album mostly recorded in Berlin, and then Werner Herzog was back at TIFF with his new documentary Into the Abyss .
The other movie we saw yesterday was the Brad Pitt baseball movie Moneyball . You can read our thoughts on that here as well as read reviews of Ryan Gosling's two movies at TIFF, Nicolas Refn's Drive and George Clooney's The Ides of March (by clicking on their respective title.)http://www.comingsoon.net/news/torontonews.php?id=81884
