THIS WEEK IN THEATRES...
* The Nanny Diaries, a thoroughly average but inoffensive new movie in which Scarlett Johansson proves her muscle, but the American Splendor directors don't match her (or their) potential.
THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...
* As You Like It, Kenneth Branagh's latest Shakespeare adaptation.
* House of Games - Criterion Collection, David Mamet's hardboiled, intellectual take on the con man genre.
* The Milky Way - Criterion Collection pits Luis Bunuel against religious dogma in a giddy celebration of heresy.
* Popeye the Sailor, 1933-1938: Volume One, a marvelous collection of symphonies of violence and the triumph of the little guy.
* Spring in a Small Town, a terrible DVD of an otherwise excellent Chinese film from 1948.
Current Soundtrack: Carla Thomas, Stax Profiles - Carla Thomas
Current Mood: annoyed (with my own bad handwriting)
