NEW IN THEATRES...
* Attack the Block, the ultimate summer movie shows up just in time for fall. (Unless you were lucky enough to get it in your town earlier, of course...)
* Contagion, in which Steven Soderbergh makes sure you'll never touch yourself again. On the face. ON THE FACE!!! But seriously, this movie is awesome.
* Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life, a biopic of Serge Gainsbourg from French cartoonist Joan Sfarr. It can't quite sustain its inventiveness, but I liked it all the same.
* Higher Ground, actress Vera Farmiga tackles feminism and faith in her directorial debut.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* The Warped World of Koreyoshi Kurahara, an Eclipse set collecting five of the Japanese films from the 1960s. (Also at DVD Talk.)
THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...
* David Holzman's Diary: Special Edition, Jim McBride's seminal indie movie from the late 1960s.
* A Fistful of Dollars, the stylistically explosive beginning of the Leone/Eastwood "Man with No Name" films.
* If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front, a thought-provoking documentary about controversial radicalism.
* Let's Do It Again, a musical remake of The Awful Truth starring Jane Wyman and Ray Milland.
* One Minute to Zero, Robert Mitchum makes love to Ann Blyth and hits the snooze button in this Korean War drama.
Current Soundtrack: John's Children, "Smashed Block;" Serge Gainsbourg, Serge Gainsbourg (Best Of)
