NEW IN THEATRES...
* Cave of Forgotten Dreams, Werner Herzog's 3D documentary about the Chauvet Caves. My favorite movie of the year so far.
* Thor, another winner from Marvel. Kenneth Branagh's adaptation of the comic is mighty fun.
* The NW Film Center in Portland is also starting a festival of twelve films starring Catherine Deneuve. I picked some of my favorites for the Portland Mercury. Read "The Two Faces of Deneuve."
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, Terry Gilliam's odd and entertaining adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson. (Also at DVD Talk.)
* Kes, an involving coming-of-age drama from Ken Loach, starring a boy and his falcon. (Also at DVD Talk.)
* Smiles of a Summer Night, the fetching romantic comedy from Ingmar Bergman. (Also at DVD Talk.)
THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...
* The Captive City, Robert Wise's by-numbers anti-crime PSA from the 1950s.
* Not as a Stranger, starring Robert Mitchum as a doctor who can heal anything but his own bad impulses. Directed by Stanley Kramer.
