FIPRESCI Critics' Choice: "D.O.A.P."

"After 10 days, 352 films, and 27,747 minutes," a Toronto International Film Festival press release announces, the "People's Choice Award" (bestowed in recent years upon such films as "American Beauty" and "Tsotsi"), went to "Bella," an American film directed by Alejandro Gomez Monteverde.

More prize winners here. And I'll be posting more of my own thoughts about this year's festival in the next few days.
