Here are the movies i saw in the past month i wish i could write a review about, if i had time. Instead, just a quick one-liner will have to do.
- Coco Before Chanel (2009) was very disappointing and boring.
- Hunger (2008) was like a punch in the stomach. Very impressive Cinema Realite, even if i can't buy into the politics.
- Bug (2006) was a major surprise... I have always wanted to see it but it never was a priority. Big mistake. Major creepy horror that starts as a plain drama piece.
- Women In Trouble (2009) was a fun indie chick flick with a twist. I enjoyed it a lot.
- Invention Of Lying, The (2009) was better than expected, with some very funny moments.
- Che, Part 1: The Argentine (2008) and Che, Part 2: Guerrilla (2008) were disappointing, boring and oh so biased.
- Testament Of Dr. Mabuse, The (1933) and M (1931) were fantastic. I had never seen those.
- Soul Power (2008) was fantastic.... great music and documentary if you like African music, Soul and Funk, and Muhammad Ali.
- Away From Her (2006) blew my mind away... simple love story that is very powerful and tender.
- Triangle (2009) a very nice time warp horror story. Very enjoyable little horror film with a ton of twists.
- Forbidden Photos Of A Lady Above Suspicion (1970) is a gorgeous Italian giallo with memorable music, cinematography, set and costume design.
- House Of The Devil, The (2009) is a great throw-back to 80's horror. It's a wonderful homage to the genre.
- New York, I Love You (2009) is a companion to Paris, I Love You (2006) from a few years ago. Very sweet and very NY.
- Up In The Air (2009) is driven by great performances, a heart, and a good story.
- Precious (2009) is damn scary. Could be classified as a horror film if it went just a little bit further.
