NEW IN THEATRES...
* Django Unchained. Quentin Tarantino continues to play his perfect game.
* Jack Reacher, a no-nonsense action pic from Tom Cruise and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie.
I also wrote this article for the mini Wes Anderson film festival coming to Portland for Christmas!
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* Brazil, for those who wish the Mayans were right, Terry Gilliam shows us why in his oddball portrait of the future. (Also at DVD Talk.)
* Following, the debut from Christopher Nolan is a knotted, if unexceptional, crime picture.
* Rembrandt, Charles Laughton stars as the painter in the last of a quartet of Alexander Korda directed biopics.
* Two with Paul Robeson, Sanders of the River and Jericho. One directed by Zoltan Korda, brother to Alexander.
THIS WEEK IN BD/DVD REVIEWS...
* Beloved Infidel, a stick-up-the-butt portrait of F. Scott Fitzgerald's last love affair. Starring Gregory Peck and Deborah Kerr.
* Upstairs Downstairs: Season 2, the reboot of the BBC perennial is the smarter ancestor to Downton Abbey. So of course it got cancelled.
* The Well-Digger's Daughter, esteemed French actor Daniel Auteuil adapts Marcel Pagnol.
Current Soundtrack: Flying Lotus, Los Angeles; Rodriguez, "Cause"
