Toronto 2013: Critics' Scorecard
With TIFF officially wrapped, we look at how the festival's most high-profile films have fared with critics ahead of awards season.
Arriving at a key moment in the movie year, the Toronto International Film Festival heralds the onset of Awards Season, with hundreds of films -- from Cannes smashes, festival darlings and left-field debuts -- mingling with Hollywood's prestige hopefuls. TIFF can confirm the trajectory of critical heavy-hitters (Blue is the Warmest Color, Gravity), highlight future cult favorites (Under the Skin, The Double) and, of course, crown the unofficial front-runner in the forthcoming Oscar race (that'll be 12 Years A Slave). Here's a look at how the critics have responded to the more notable films that played at the festival. (Where reviews are available.)
