That two-part episode of the ABC police drama wraps up Thursday (Sept. 12), and Sullivan is ending the series' year grateful to be showing different colors of Gail while staying true to the character's typically edgy, not exactly sociable persona.

I won't even begin to get into the plethora of animated short films announced today for Tiff's Canadia shorts blocks, because there is a wealth of interesting cinema spewing forth from the bowels of English and French Canada for this years edition of Tiff. Regulars Bruce McDonald, Michael Dowse, Denis Villeneuve, Robert Lapage, Bruce Sweeney and the documentary tag-team of Jennifer Baichwal & Edward Burtynsky all have new films, aloing with the current darling of Canuck cinema, Xavier Dolan. The multi-talented Jeff Barnaby's provocative looking First Nations film Rhymes For Young Ghouls (pictured below) gets its world premiere along with a film directed by prolific character actor Peter Stebbings and a surprisingly un-pornographic sounding new one from Canada's L'enfant terrible, Bruce Labruce. All of these...

The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival has announced its lineup of Canadian features, which includes The F Word from Michael Dowse (Goon) starring Daniel Radfliffe and Adam Driver ("Girls"), Xavier Dolan's new film Tom at the Farm and Denis Villeneuve's second film to be added to the festival Enemy, which stars one of his two leads in Prisoners (which is also premiering in Toronto), Jake Gyllenhaal. The F Word is also Daniel Radfliffe's third film in the fest after Horns from Alexandre Aja and Kill Your Darlings. F Word centers on Wallace (Radfliffe) who meets Chantry (Zoe Kazan) and it would be love at first sight, except she lives with her long-term boyfriend. So Wallace, acting with both best intentions -- and maybe a little denial -- discovers the dirtiest word in romance: friends. Dolan is coming off the fantastic Laurence Anyways and again wrote, directed and stars in »

With Kick-Ass 2 rolling into theatres, Stuart Heritage looks back at the original c-word sporting superhero comedy
Spoiler Alert: This blog is published ahead of the screening on Channel 4 tomorrow (Saturday) at 10pm. Do not read if you have not seen the film and don't want to know anything about it.
"With no power, comes no responsibility." – Dave Lizewski
