For the first time I’ve been granted press accreditation for the Toronto International Film Festival®, recognised as one of the largest and most prestigious film festivals in the world. So, I had the opportunity to watch and review a bunch of movies. This article features two short reviews of To the Ends of the Earth (Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Japan/Uzbekistan, drama/sci-fi; original title: Tabi no Owari Sekai no Hajimari) and Resin (Daniel Borgman, Denmark, horror; original title: Harpiks).
