NEW IN THEATRES...
* Henri-Georges Clouzot's Inferno, the amazing tale of a film director and the movie that burned away. For two nights only at the NW Film Center!
* Let Me In, an exercise in redundancy. I'm debating between "No thanks, I'd rather stay outside," and "Fine, but once you're in, stay in!"
* The Social Network--Sorkin? Fincher? Me and this movie are totally friends.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* The Magician, a chilly philosophical entertainment from Ingmar Bergman. Part horror, part mystery, totally great. (Also at DVD Talk).
* Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, WWII-era David Bowie yaoi. (Also at DVD Talk).
THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...
* The Law, this late '50s genre-buster from Jules Dassin is wicked fun. Gina Lollobrigida can pull a knife on me any time.
* Secretary, a sweet romance in weird kid's clothing. Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader are amazing, but this Blu-Ray reissue could have been better.
Current Soundtrack: The Airborne Toxic Event, All I Ever Wanted
