NEW IN THEATRES...
* Beginners, Mike Mills' exploration of mortality, love, and depression will catch you off guard. Naturally quirky and moving, it stars Ewan McGregor, Christopher Plummer, and Melanie Laurent.
* The Tree of Life, in which Terrence Malick wrestles with the universe, the All Father, and all fathers.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* Insignificance, Nicolas Roeg's historical fiction about the night Marilyn Monroe could have met Albert Einstein. (Also at DVD Talk)
* The Makioka Sisters, a soft Japanese drama about four siblings dealing with life, love, and an uncertain future just before World War II. (Also at DVD Talk)
THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...
* Carancho, an Argentinian twist on crime and romance, from the people who brought us Lion's Den.
* Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, a mixed bag of an animated film showcasing the Green Lantern Corps. Kind of for fans only, methinks.
* Marriage Italian Style, a strangely dark, yet intriguing, romantic "comedy" from Vittorio De Sica, reteaming Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni.
* Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre on Tour, a concert documentary about the influential feminist punk band. The DVD includes a ton of great bonus features.
Current Soundtrack: Depeche Mode, Tour of the Universe: Barcelona 20/21.11.09 Blu-Ray
