Defending quality film

It’s been a fairly disappointing year for film so far, not much in the way of seriously funny comedy or anything with any real meat to it or new ideas. But there’s a potential little gem being premiered at the Toronto Film Festival (which starts next week) that might just cover all those bases.

Defendor stars Woody Harrelson playing Arthur Poppington AKA Defendor, a fake superhero with no special powers and weapons that consist of marbles and lime juice, who is on the trail of drug and weapons dealer Captain Industry, who may or may not actually exist. If the film lives up to the trailer (below) it’ll be well worth a watch.
