WE MET IN A CINEMA, YOU FELL FROM MY VIEW

Not as many this week, but hey, everyone needs a break?



THIS WEEK IN THEATRES...

* Ashes of Time Redux, the restoration of Wong Kar-Wai's martial artist stunner. I was very excited to see this, as you will likely read! [Edit: Now with correct link.]

UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...

I'm keeping on with my goal of one horror movie a week until Halloween, don't worry. This week isn't over yet!

* Missing, the Costa-Gavras docudrama with Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek. Oh, the memories!

THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...

* Ludwig, the gigantic Luchino Visconti biography of the mad king of Bavaria. This took a while to get through, which is why I slowed down some. (Plus, I have some big sets I am starting, too.)

* Mondays in the Sun, a Javier Bardem vehicle about men struggling with unemployment in Spain. A surprisingly meaningful drama with good characters and a balance of humor.



Current Soundtrack: Pink Floyd's original Peel Session from 1970. Download it here.

Current Mood:
