Bros, Butts, and More at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festivalnew

As I write this, a little over halfway though this year's visit, I haven't yet had a defining Toronto fest moment. Sure, there was the moment I became aware of just how jaded I am -- when I passed by a mob of gawkers and flashbulbs and realized I didn't give a rat's ass about which celebrity had incited such a tizzy. But so far, I haven't seen a film that truly dazzled me.
