LUST IN THE MOVIES
Okay, there's not really much lust in these movies. Maybe a little. But it made a good title. It's my hoax on you!
THIS WEEK AT THE THEATRE...
* Black Book, in which Paul Verhoeven tries to make us think he's an artist, and only partially succeeds
* The Hoax, in which Richard Gere tries to makes us think he's an actor, and he made me believe. Could that be a bigger con than the one portrayed in this excellent movie?
* Grindhouse, in which many heads explode. My reaction may surprise longtime readers of this blog (you know, people who were here last week). Did Tarantino make it happen, or was my earlier post right?
You should also read David Walker's review of Grindhouse. Just like on 300, we fall on opposite sides in really interesting ways. He also has greater insight into the tradition the movie is referencing.
No DVD reviews this week. Such is life.
