THE F WORD

NOW Magazine - TIFF - - FILM FESTIVAL PREVIEW -

For my money, Michael Dowse is one of the best comic film­mak­ers work­ing, and cer­tainly the best in Canada. Films like Fubar and Goon have real heart be­sides all their dick and fart jokes, and that ten­der­ness seems ready to bub­ble to the fore here. Daniel Rad­cliffe plays a hope­less ro­man­tic who falls in love with an al­ready at­tached friend ( Zoe Kazan). But un­like crap like (500) Days Of Sum­mer, The F Word is sup­posed to chart the ac­tual flow of one- di­rec­tional af­fec­tions, where the guy’s yearn­ing is left to­tally un­re­cip­ro­cated. Sounds like a nec­es­sary in­ter­ven­tion in the whole un­der­dog rom-com canon. Septem­ber 7, 9 pm, Ry­er­son; Septem­ber 8, 11:30 am, Bloor
