“At the level of metaphor Toronto is a prostitute”, Atom Egoyan

Film director Atom Egoyan insisted on shooting Toronto as Toronto for his film “Chloe”.  Our city is normally a chameleon, disguising itself as New York, Chicago, San Francisco or even Manchester in the movies.  We don’t often get to see our own architecture, skyline and grit on the big screen.  This is changing though, and Mr. Egoyan is leading the way.  “Flashpoint”, a police action series on CBS and CTV, is thoroughly Toronto; “Scott Pilgrim vs The World” and Egoyan’s “Chloe” are two recent features unabashedly set in Big TO.
