LA PROMESSE (1996)

What a way to debut! The Dardenne brothers direct and Jérémie Renier stars. Violent family tale of petty criminals and illegal immigrants in Antwerp; gritty, awesome.
 

PITCH PERFECT

20 minutes too long, and not enough Adam DeVine. Good for a few laughs: perfect for Glee fans.

Fully expected to hate it, but found it watchable, apart from the rampant yellow-face, and non subtitled patois; so glad I didn't read the book. Great editing. It's long, but worth it. Pictured: David Gyasi. 
 
 
Follow a varied handful of horse trainers as they take wild mustangs from the open fields to a competition and auction in the Extreme Mustang Makeover Challenge; it's great: loved it!

ARGO

Ben Affleck was in danger of being eclipsed by cohort Matt Damon, but Argo helps even out their career trajectories. Mr. Affleck has taken a page out of Robert Mitchem's book and does very little acting, and it really works for him! Love the suspense; the era was beautifully reproduced, my favorite film of 2012, so far...
