THIS WEEK IN THEATRES...
* The Walker, Paul Schrader's new film never quite gets up to speed, despite some excellent performances by Woody Harrelson and Lauren Bacall.
THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...
* Film Noir: Five Classics from the Studio Vauluts, a handful of Kino noirish DVDs tossed in a box, proving the term classic is fluid. Includes work from Fritz Lang, Michael Powell, Anthony Mann, and Ida Lupino.
* The Last Legion, which surprises as light entertainment. A quest for swords, kicking some ass, and Aishwarya Rai.
* Perhaps Love, a Chinese film paying homage to Hollywood musicals. Directed by Peter Chan, with cinematography by Peter Pau and Christopher Doyle (!).
* Titanic - 10th Anniversary Edition. Spoiler Alert: The boat sinks.
In addition to that, I'm beginning to now add weekly new reviews to Criterion Confessions as the reprints dwindle. Three reprints added this week, but also, just in time for the holidays, Cecil B. DeMille's The King of Kings. Spoiler Alert: Jesus doesn't stay dead.
Current Soundtrack: Arcade Fire, Neon Bible
Current Mood: cold
