More Special Presentations were announced today, and this batch is a bit more interesting than the last one:

Werner Herzog has inexplicably made a sequel to (and/or re-make of... it's hard to tell) Bad Lieutenant, this one set in New Orleans and with Nic Cage instead of Harvey Keitel. There is a very good chance that this will be the funniest movie of the entire festival.

We get Michael Moore's latest, because Moore always brings his movies to TIFF. This one's about capitalism. Boo capitalism!

A Serious Man, the new film from the Coens, gets its world premiere. Shockingly, it's a period comedy, which would be a radical change of pace for the Coens. Yes, that was sarcasm.

Drew Barrymore makes her directorial debut with a roller derby comedy starring Ellen Page. I predict this will be the toughest ticket to get of the entire festival.
