MYSTERIES FLASHING AMBER GO GREEN WHEN YOU ANSWER
NEW IN THEATRES...
* Green Lantern. You will believe that space can be realllllly boring. And Earth. And everything else.
* Submarine, a quirky, heartfelt coming-of-age drama set in Wales.
* The Trip, Steve Coogan on a very funny roadtrip with his pal Rob Brydon. Directed by Michael Winterbottom.
Portlanders can catch The Trip at Cinema 21.
Also opening in Portland this weekend is the Italian film The Double Hour, an excellent crime drama I reviewed at PIFF.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* Fish Tank, Andrea Arnold's portrait of a girl struggling with growing up to fast.
Might make an interesting double-feature with Submarine, actually.
THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...
* Despair, a Vladimir Nabokov adaptation from writer Tom Stoppard and director Rainer Werner Fassbender, starring Dirk Bogarde. And it's as weird as that combination would suggest.
* Laila, a silent Norwegian epic from 1929.
* Public Speaking, Martin Scorsese's documentary about author Fran Lebowitz. Engaging and funny.
Current Soundtrack: various B-sides and sessions from Pains of Being Pure at Heart
