Toronto 2011. Real to Reel + Mavericks Previews

  • MUBI
There are a couple of reasons for revisiting the Toronto International Film Festival's lineup for its documentary program, Real to Reel. One of them is Aj Schnack's interview with Thom Powers, Tiff's Documentary and Mavericks Programmer, posted just hours after the Mavericks lineup was announced on Tuesday. Discussing the highlights of both programs, they touch on another reason: Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory is making all sorts of headlines. Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky's third film chronicling the odyssey of Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley Jr, aka the West Memphis Three, through the labyrinth of the Us legal system, follows Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills (1996) and Paradise Lost 2: Revelations (2000). All three films deal with what Powers calls in his Programmer's Note "an 18-year-old murder case that has become an iconic example of a legal witch hunt." In 1993, when all three men were still teens,

“The first newspaper article Nick Pileggi showed me was about the police covering a domestic fight on a Las Vegas lawn one Sunday morning,” explained American filmmaker Martin Scorsese regarding the origins of Casino (1995). “In the article it slowly began to unravel, this incredible ten-year adventure that all these people were having, culminating in this husband and wife arguing on their lawn, with her smashing his car, the police arriving, and the FBI taking pictures.” Pileggi served as the co-screenwriter for the cinematic adaptation of his book about Sam “Ace” Rothstein (Robert De Niro), a top gambling handicapper, who is sent by the Mob to manage the day-to-day operations of a Las Vegas casino. “The Tangiers is fictional but there were four – the Stardust, the Fremont,
