The Watch (Akiva Schaffer, 2012). A film formerly known as Neighborhood Watch, until events transpired. Many funny intentions here, and a few unnerving ones, but maybe these guys need to mix it up a little. (full review 7/27)
Galileo (Joseph Losey, 1975). One of those odd American Film Theatre productions, this one the Brecht play that Losey had directed onstage decades before. It sounds interesting to put Topol in the lead role, although the staginess of the play suggests a crafty technician like Charles Laughton for the part.
Alps (Giorgos Lanthimos, 2011). Follow-up from the guy who did Dogtooth. Not quite the same as that film, but similar enough to be plenty sinister. (full review 7/27)
