NEW IN THEATRES...
* Argo, Ben Affleck takes a true story about a fake movie and turns it into genuine cinema.
* Seven Pyschopaths, the comedy is dark and funny, the action appropriately visceral, but the second film from the director of In Bruges isn't as smart as it thinks it is.
* Sinister, half a good horror movie, half a bad one, and the better half doesn't make it worth the time.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* In the Mood for Love, the beautiful tribute to unfulfilled romance by Wong Kar-Wai is now on Blu-Ray. (Also at DVD Talk.)
* Street of Shame, the final film in Kenji Mizoguchi's Lost Women also happens to be the Japanese director's last.
THIS WEEK IN BD/DVD REVIEWS:
* Confessions of an Opium Eater, in which Vincent Price goes on a trip through Chinatown.
* Detachment, an arty drama about teachers overstuffs the lesson plan, but Adrien Brody and thre rest of the cast are great.
* The English Beat: Live at the US Festival '82 & '83, two concert from the band's classic line-up
* Fear and Desire, the "lost" first film of Stanley Kubrick.
