Edgar Chaput

A native of Montréal, Québec, Edgar has been writing about film since 2008. At first relegated to a personal blog back when those things were all the rage, he eventually became a Sound on Sight staff member in late 2011, a site managed by non-other than Ricky D himself. Theatrical reviews, festival coverage, film noir and martial arts flicks columns, he even co-hosted the previous incarnation of Sordid Cinema for a couple of years from 2012 to 2014 with Ricky and Simon Howell. He now offers his services to CutPrintFilm, and still writes about film noir after all these years. His true cinematic love however, his unshakable obsession, is the 007 franchise. After all, nobody does it better.

Is the Toronto International Film Festival worth attending in person? You bet.

TIFF 2017: ‘The Journey’ Is A Creative Exploration Of Post-War Iraq And Its People

Smart, well acted, and touching in surprising ways despite its subject matter, 'The Journey' is well worth taking.

TIFF 2017: ‘Three Peaks’ Is A Complex, Unnerving Story Of A Family’s Decomposition

'Three Peaks' is a fascinating, and at times disconcerting character piece about the struggle to be a family.

TIFF 2017: ‘The Ritual’ is David Bruckner’s Rite of Passage Into Feature-Length Horror

David Bruckner once again makes a case for himself as one of the more talented, confident horror film directors modern cinema has to offer with 'The Ritual.'

TIFF 2017: ‘Valley of Shadows’ Is Gorgeous, But Too Languid To Be Fully Effective

'Valley of Shadows' is by no means a poor film. An apt argument might be that it is too challenging for its own good.

TIFF 2017: ‘Five Fingers for Marseilles’ Is a Great Western By Way of Rural...

'Five Fingers for Marseilles' both pleases and surprises. Western fans will get what they want, as will movie lovers that want an action film with a legitimately different flavour.
