It would be nice if Toronto Film Festival slackers like myself had a shot at seeing films they wanted to catch in Toronto but didn’t. Like Paul Verhoeven‘s Black Book, which Sony Classics has acquired for distribution in North America and other territories. I didn’t prioritize it in Toronto, frankly, because of mixed word of mouth…but then Variety‘s Robert Koehler convinced me it was worth seeing. Now comes an announcement that the Netherlands has submitted Black Book, a sexually- pronounced World War II drama, as its official foreign language entry for the Oscars.
