The Girl on the Train (Andre Techine, 2009). Fine offering from Techine, with a pair of heavyweight French actors (Catherine Deneuve and Michel Blanc) providing support to Emilie Dequenne (who looks very different now from her award-winning Rosetta debut). The director’s elliptical style suits the main character’s quick-shifting way of moving through the world. (full review 3/5)
The Crazies (Breck Eisner, 2010). Once it hustles past a few initial logic-leaps, this thing really gets into a pretty good groove. Not exactly a revelation, but a clean and mostly sober take on George Romero’s original, and sturdy people in the front lines (Timothy Olyphant, Radha Mitchell).
