I actually thought this movie wasn't half-bad. It wasn't a movie I felt you needed to rush to the cinema to see, but as far as middling comedies go you could do much worse and a home video rental is probably the perfect way to watch it. You can read my "C+" review right here.
Here is a movie that should have been much better but instead of bucking the system it followed all the stereotypical pitfalls a thriller such as this can't seem to avoid. I gave it a "C-" when I reviewed it back in March, but I would still say anyone interested might want to give it a look. Ultimately it ends up more disappointing than it should be because there are legitimate moments of quality... the rest just brings it down
Jim Sturgess and Kirsten Dunst play Adam and Eden two teens pulled apart by a world with gravities that pull in opposite directions. Ten years later Adam sets out to find his one true love. Could be good?
Shoah (Criterion Collection)
At over nine hours long, Claude Lanzmann's Shoah is a documentary on the Holocaust that uses no archival footage, just first-person testimonies (of survivors and former Nazis, as well as other witnesses) to tell its story. I was hoping to review it for you, but alas, no review copy in sight.
I heard so much about this at last year's Cannes Film Festival. It went on to earn an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Language Feature and then when I finally saw it, it was such a non-starter I couldn't bring myself to say much more about it than to compliment it as "good" and move on.
