The Canadian perspectives at this year's Toronto International Film Festival (September 10-20) range from documentaries (climate change crisis film "This Changes Everything") to highly anticipated biopics ("Born to Be Blue," starring Ethan Hawke as Chet Baker) and wondrously weird hybrids of narrative film and experimental art (Guy Maddin's "The Forbidden Room," which continues a festival sweep that began back at Sundance). In Robert Budreau's long-awaited "Born to Be Blue," Ethan Hawke stars as troubled jazz trumpeter Chet Baker in the 1960s. This is the first in a slate of three Special Presentations so far, which also includes Patricia Rozema's (who directed episodes of HBO dramas "In Treatment" and "Tell Me You Love Me") "Into the Forest," starring Evan Rachel Wood and Ellen Page (who also has "Freeheld" bowing in the main slate) as survivors fending for themselves amid a collapsing America. entwines »

There are the 1960s, and then there is "the Sixties," and they only overlap to a degree. Popular culture and popular history have turned the Sixties in America into a dreamscape of mop-topped British invaders, painted hippies, an escalating war in Vietnam, a moon landing, and massive social unrest. But before the rise of the flower children, there were men in suits and short haircuts, women in conservative dresses, and chaste movie musicals dominating at the box office. And it's not like the counterculture obliterated the culture that had already existed. The psychedelic-inflected comedy of "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" was the highest rated show of the 1968-69 season, but the top 10 also included "Gomer Pyle," "Bonanza," "Mayberry Rfd," "Family Affair," "Gunsmoke," "The Dean Martin Show," "Here's Lucy" and "The Beverly Hillbillies."
