As some of you may know, I’m an avid film lover. You may also know that I have been volunteering at TIFF (The Toronto International Film Festival) every year for the past 4 years. Well, it’s time to make it 5 years in a row this year! I thought I’d celebrate my 5-year volunteer-a-versary by highlighting the films that I have watched and reviewed over the past 4 years! Without further ado, click the film titles below to see all of the TIFF films I have reviewed from years past!

1920, rural Ireland. Anglo Irish twins Rachel and Edward share a strange existence in their crumbling family estate. Each night, the property becomes the domain of a sinister presence which enforces three rules upon the twins: they must be in bed by midnight; they may not permit an outsider past the threshold; if one attempts to escape, the life of the other is placed in jeopardy. When troubled war veteran Sean returns to the nearby village, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious Rachel, who in turn begins to break the rules set out by The Lodgers. The consequences pull Rachel into a deadly confrontation with her brother – and with the curse that haunts them.
Three Christs follows Dr. Alan Stone who is treating three paranoid schizophrenic patients at the Ypsilanti State Hospital in Michigan, each of whom believed they were Jesus Christ. What transpires is both comic and deeply moving.
