The Strange Case of Angelica (Manoel de Oliveira, 2010). I dunno, maybe this director is just getting old. (full review 4/15)
Rio (Carlos Saldanha, 2011). Save the Blue Macaw. Seriously. (full review 4/15)
The Trip (Michael Winterbottom, 2011). Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon on a road trip. Among other things, how interesting to see a film in which male characters seek out the homes of Coleridge and Wordsworth while competing with Sean Connery impersonations. (full review 6/?)
Potiche (Francois Ozon, 2010). Buncha French royalty, including Denueve, Depardieu, and Luchini, in a very kooky 1977-vintage women’s lib picture, more or less. (full review 4/15)
Rembrandt’s J’Accuse (Peter Greenaway, 2008). Crazy little essay film by Greenaway, starring his disembodied head listing the reasons The Nightwatch is a real-life murder mystery. When he pronounces “J’Accuse,” Greenaway says “zaccooz.”
Winter in Wartime (Martin Koolhoven, 2008). WWII yarn from Holland, about a hidden Allied pilot and a very resourceful kid. (full review 4/15)
At What a Feeling!, a look at Rocky III.
