Top 3 Movies About Privacy/Surveillance (36:49)
Since the inception of government and security, the debate of surveillance and privacy has always been stirring. How far are we willing to go for the sake of security? Are we willing to risk potential harm for our right to privacy? Those are the questions that films, such as Snowden, as well as the films on our list this week tackle and grapple with at their core. There are many great contenders for this list and we found some great discussion when presenting our Top 3 this week. On that note, what would be your top 3?

– Toronto International Film Festival 2016 (1:21:16)

Of all the years to miss TIFF, this was *not* the year to skip out on this festival. Holy cow, the fall is looking even more promising after all the rumblings that came out of TIFF the last few weeks. We didn’t have enough time to discuss all the films we wanted to, but we briefly mentioned La La Land and a few others that people raved about during the festival.
