Can't get enough "Bill And Ted's Excellent Adventure"? How about "Point Break?" "Speed"? "The Matrix"?

While Keanu Reeves isn't the most cerebral of actors, his distinct (and let's call it aloof) acting style still makes him an appealing fellow to watch on screen. Plus you can't deny how classic the majority of his films have become.

Toronto's TIFF Bell Lightbox has realized this oft-ignored fact, and starting January 11 is screening all of Reeves' films over a four-month period.

From high school headbanger ("Bill And Ted's") to wave-catching fed ("Point Break"), bomber-busting cop ("Speed") to futuristic saviour ("The Matrix"), the former Torontonian has boldly explored the many faces of "Whooooaaaaaa!" throughout his long and storied career.

As he prepares to make his return to large-scale action epics later this year with the sci-fi samurai flick "47 Ronin," the Lightbox celebrates the remarkable range of The One with this totally excellent, never bogus 11-film tribute.

Screening times are as follows: (For more information, visit TIFF Bell Lightbox's site.)
