THIS WEEK IN THEATRES...
* Two Lovers, a rough and often tough-going romantic tale about the ups and downs of the heart. With Joaquin Phoenix and Gwyneth Paltrow.
* Over at my Criterion blog, I also review Revanche, an Oscar-nominee for Best Foreign Language Film this year. It's an excellent dramatic crime picture.
And don't forget my PIFF reviews. Three more movies will be up tomorrow.
THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...
* Cannery Row, a Steinbeck adaptation that falls short of the mark thanks to a strained and hokey stylistic nostalgia. With Nick Nolte and Debra Winger.
* A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, an interesting but all too familiar coming-of-age tale that asks you to believe that Shia LaBeouf will become Robert Downey Jr.
* Hobson's Choice - Criterion Collection, a wonderful comedy from director David Lean and actor Charles Laughton. (Also at Criterion Confessions.)
* Natalie Wood Signature Collection, a new boxed set that is mostly full of misses from the Warners back catalogue. It does contain the new edition of Splendor in the Grass, though.
Current Soundtrack: "Jeopardy" on TV
