CHEREE, CHEREE, MY COMIC BOOK FANTASY
* Chéri, the lacklustre reteaming of Stephen Frears, Christopher Hampton, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* I Am Curious - Yellow, a look at the 1967 Swedish film notorious for being used to challenge U.S. obscenity laws.
THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...
* Brief Encounter (1974), a BBC remake with Richard Burton and Sophia Loren that holds its own against the older David Lean version.
* Eastbound & Down - The Complete First Season, the latest release from HBO's TV division is the perfect vehicle for comedian Danny McBride. Raunchy, mean-spirited fun! Includes three episodes directed by David Gordon Green.
* I Want to Go Home, Alain Resnais' flaccid collaboration with Jules Feiffer, a portrait of an aging cartoonist. The worst yet of the 1980s Resnais movies I've reviewed recently--and thankfully the last.
* Lookin' to Get Out: Extended Version, a little-known later work from Hal Ashby gets a new airing.
WARNING: Definitely NSFW...
Current Soundtrack: The Boo Radleys, Giant Steps
