NEW IN THEATRES...
* The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo, an adapation of the Stieg Larsson novel that is largely successful thanks to an incomparable performance by Noomi Rapace. Starts in Portland this weekend at Cinema 21, who have really had an impressive calendar as of late.
* The Joneses, a flawed but mostly entertaining and original satire on the culture of consumption. With David Duchovny and Demi Moore.
* Kick-Ass, the adaptation of the Mark Millar/John Romita Jr. comic. For once, I think the movie is better than the source. Well, except for that JR Jr. art. You can't beat that!
For those curious about the comic, Floating World here in Portland tells me they have the hardcover back in stock and free KA T-shirts with purchase!
THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...
* The Fugitive Kind - Criterion Collection: Marlon Brando. Anna Magnani. Sidney Lumet. Tennessee Williams. What more do you need to know? (Also at Criterion Confessions.)
