NEW IN THEATRES...
* Mesrine: Killer Instinct, the first part of an expertly executed crime epic straight outta France. Vincent Cassel plays the notorious bank robber Jacques Mesrine.
Playing Portland at Cinema 21 this week. Part 2 starts next week.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* I Fidanzati, Ermanno Olmi's 1962 romance is a charming surprise.
THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...
* Home, an interesting eco-parable with Isabelle Huppert that kind of goes nowhere.
* John Rabe, a fairly good WWII drama set during the Nanking Massacre.
* Laughology, a documentary on laughing that fails to contrive any mirth.
* The Square, a tense thriller from Australia that goes a few twists too far. The short film Spider included with the extras is the real gem here.
Current Soundtrack: Lupe Fiasco, "Paris, Tokyo;" La Roux, "Bulletproof;" The Drums, "Book of Stories"
