Matt writes: Despite the COVID-19 pandemic preventing our writers from attending the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival in person this year, our Managing Editor Brian Tallerico is still screening all of the highlights remotely. Keep your eyes peeled each day for his latest dispatches from the festival, which kicked off September 10th and runs through Sunday, September 20th. A few of the hotly anticipated titles he's reviewed thus far are Francis Lee's "Ammonite," starring Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan, Regina King's "One Night in Miami," starring Leslie Odom Jr., and ChloƩ Zhao's "Nomadland," starring Frances McDormand.

Matt writes: Sometimes the job of a critic is to provide a platform for films not receiving their deserved attention from audiences. In light of its underwhelming box office numbers, I'd like to place a spotlight on one of the year's most acclaimed movies, Olivia Wilde's "Booksmart," a wonderful comedy about teenage friends encouraged to break the rules in their final hours as high schoolers.
