Oh, Canada

Midway through the Toronto film fest, and things are looking bleak

Heavyweight champ of the fest so far, however, is Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler, starring Mickey Rourke in a career-capping/resuscitating/redefining performance as an over-the-hill pro wrestler still grappling with opponents both physical and metaphysical. Simply put: Who'd have thought that one of the great movies of Toronto (and the year) would turn out to be a wildly original, existentialist tragicomedy decked out in frosted-blond hair extensions and spandex tights?
