NEW IN THEATRES...
* Hesher, Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as the title character. Hit an open chord, take off your shirt, and be a teenage dirtbag, baby.
Playing Portland at Cinema 21 starting this weekend.
* True Legend, a disappointing new action flick from the awesome martial arts choreographer Yuen Woo-Ping. Lame story, too much CGI.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* The Great Dictator, Charles Chaplin's daring comedy parody of Adolph Hitler still packs a punch today.
THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...
* The Misfits, John Huston directs Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe in their final screen roles. Also stars Eli Wallach and Montgomery Clift, in a script by Arthur Miller.
* The Unloved, Samantha Morton's softly rendered, heartfelt directorial debut.
