TORONTO REPORT: DON'T GO BREAKING MY HEART 2


Johnnie To is an unlikely festival regular, not least with a comedy sequel like Don't Go Breaking My Heart 2. It was always gonna be a tough sell with critics, but varying responses have emerged from TIFF 2014 on the film, some of them predictably poor, some impressively good. Reviews come from Fernando F. Croce at MUBI's Notebook, Wesley Morris at Grantland, Scott Foundas at Variety, Jake Cole at The House Next Door, Mike D'Angelo at The Dissolve, Ben Nicholson at CineVue, Ignatiy Vishnevetsky at The A. V. Club and Deborah Young at The Hollywood Reporter.
