» Bad Lieutenant, Whip It, Michael Moore Off to Toronto

by S.T. VanAirsdale, published on July 28, 2009 9:10 AM

The year’s most anticipated directorial debut, documentary and remake (or whatever they’re calling it) were all announced this morning as invitees to the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival. Of all of them, I think the one featuring Nicolas Cage as a crackhead cop might have the longest line outside the theater, but maybe I’m underestimating the appeal of Ellen Page roller derby epics. Help sort it out after the jump.

Werner Herzog’s batshit riff on Bad Lieutenant — a/k/a Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, a/k/a The Thinking Man’s Streets of Blood — will make its North American debut at the festival, which has welcomed the auteur for years. The same goes for TIFF regular Michael Moore, whose latest shit-stirring, Oscar-hopeful doc Capitalism: A Love Story will bow up north.

Other boldface selections announced today include the world premieres of Drew Barrymore’s roller-derby directing effort Whip It and the Coen Brothers’ A Serious Man, the latter being touted as “exploring questions of faith, familial responsibility, delinquent behavior, dental phenomena, academia, mortality and Judaism — and intersections thereof.” Oh enough — you had me at “dental phenomena.” More titles to come in the weeks ahead…
