NEW IN THEATRES...
* The Other Woman, in which Natalie Portman gets really, really sad. Really.
* Paul, the new Simon Pegg/Nick Frost comedy takes on sci-fi as the genre of choice, and though it's funny, you will miss Edgar Wright.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* The Double Life of Veronique, revisiting Krzysztof Kieślowski's masterful film on Blu-Ray.
* Topsy-Turvy, Mike Leigh's impressive dramatization of Gilbert & Sullivan writing The Mikado. (Also at DVD Talk.)
THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...
* Heartbreaker, a rom-com that reminds us that the French make crappy movies, too.
* Sunday in New York, a flaccid 1960s romantic comedy with a very non-flaccid, sexy Jane Fonda.
* Teen A Go Go, a DIY documentary on 1960s Texas garage bands.
* Two in the Wave, a documentary about Francois Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard that mostly preaches to the choir, but is still entertaining.
