Some will think that I've overlooked some that should have been in the TIFF 25. Films such as Ghost Town (Gervais is hilarious I'm sure, but its not even Indiewood, let alone indie), Management (Anniston in yet another romantic comedy), and Uncertainty (ok... this one looks really good too, and would totally make the list if it was called the TIFF 26!) will do well at the festival and beyond, but those 25 are it for this year!
