TORONTO REPORT: THE FACE OF AN ANGEL


Michael Winterbottom can be very hit-or-miss as a director, and turns out so many films so often that it's easy to wonder how good he could be if he took a little more time and paid a little more care to his films. Amanda Knox trial drama The Face of an Angel, starring model Cara Delevingne never looked like one of his strongest propositions, but reviews out of TIFF are very promising. Here are some, from Ryland Aldrich at TwitchFilm, David Sexton at Evening Standard, Ben Nicholson at CineVue, Deborah Young at The Hollywood Reporter and Tomas Hachard at The House Next Door.
