* Killer Joe, a depraved new scorcher from William Friedkin, starring Matthew McConaughey his most finger-lickin' good role.
* Lawless, Nick Cave writes, John Hillcoat directs, and Tom Hardy stars. Mm-hmm.
* Oslo, August 31, a heartfelt new personal drama from the director of Reprise.
* Sleepwalk with Me, in which Mike Birbiglia tries to make friends and influence them to understand his problems.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* Love on the Run, the conclusion of Francois Truffaut's Antoine Doinel series and my personal relationship to them (for now).
* Maidstone and Other Films by Norman Mailer. As a director, Norman Mailer makes a pretty good novelist. (Also at DVD Talk.)
THIS WEEK IN BD/DVD REVIEWS...
* Fernando Di Leo's Madness, starring Joe Dallesandro as a human 2x4. It's neither mad nor is it any good. Discuss.
* Looney Tunes Mouse Chronicles: The Chuck Jones Collection, gathering the director's Sniffles and Hubie & Bertie cartoons under one cover.
* Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, an astonishing remodel of the police drama as existential parable. From Nuri Bilge Ceylan, the director of Climates. Best movie of this whole batch!
Current Soundtrack: Pet Shop Boys, Format
