If you've got movies you've been waiting to go out and see, you might want to do that this weekend, because I have three reviews in the pipeline for absolute must-see movies that open next Friday, and I still haven't even seen everything that is coming. It's one of the most packed release calendars of the year. Consider yourselves...warned!
* Bright Star, Jane Campion's portrait of the romance between John Keats (Ben Whishaw) and Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish).
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* The White Sheik, Fellini's first solo film feels like more of a warm-up for the next big race.
THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...
* Castle: The Complete First Season, the fun cop drama with Nathan Fillion as a mystery writer shadowing a real-life police detective, played with moxie by Stana Katic.
* Observe and Report, Jody Hill's divisive dark comedy. It made me laugh.
Current Soundtrack: The Daily Show, 9/23/09 episode; Paul Heaton, "Mitch (Virgin Radio Session)"
