Ben Stiller stars in Tropic Thunder

What's It About? Media tycoon Elliot Carver sparks a war between China and the West so he can cover it in his TV, magazines and newspapers - and there's no prizes for guessing who's called in to stop him. Bond's showdown with the sadistic Dr Kaufman is 'delicious', there's a car park chase to die for and a motorbike scene that would have given Evel Knievel nightmares.

Ty Burr | Critic's Notebook Happenings at the Toronto International Film Festival

Seeing movies in groupings, as one does at a film festival, rather than singly, as one usually does in real life, discloses patterns: narrative echoes, thematic concordances, similarities of character or camera moves, the same song on two different soundtracks. This is especially true when we're talking about commercial Hollywood cinema -- profit-oriented craft as opposed to, you know, art -- which, for a variety of reasons, I'm focusing on more than is usual at this year's Toronto International Film Festival.
