TORONTO REPORT: PHOENIX


Lots of praise for Christian Petzold's Phoenix at TIFF, as expected. The German filmmaker hits another home run, following 2012's Barbara, and this ought to raise the talented director's international profile even further, alongside his formidable lead actor Nina Hoss, who also receives critical raves. Reviews come from Mike D'Angelo at The Dissolve, Mark Peranson at Cinema Scope, Jordan Mintzer at The Hollywood Reporter, Eric Kohn at IndieWire, Ignatiy Vishnevetsky at The A. V. Club and Jake Cole at The House Next Door.
