THE SKIN I LIVE IN

3/13/2012

 
Almodóvar reunites with Banderas, trades camp for lightweight horror, and sticks with themes of betrayal and sexual identity. Looks and sounds great, but the story is so far-out, and too many rapes. Weird, violent. Didn't love it, but can't stop thinking about it.

LIKE CRAZY

Long distance romance is hard to do. Once again, gorgeous ladies love an average guy. Not bad, if you enjoy this genre. Even better when you consider the budget: under $250K.

Great boxing film noir staring John Garfield. Innovative fight photography. Must see!
 

SENNA

Great movie, probably the most exciting documentary: ever. Don't need to love cars, or racing to appreciate the life of Brazilian Formula One driver Ayrton Senna. Can't wait to see it again!

It's good.

Exotic animal ownership is examined from both sides of the cage. It's good, but not for the super-sensitive big cat lovers.

Won an Oscar for best documentary. It's old school talking head interviews, and archival footage, narrated by Harvey Fierstein. Great piece of history about a major player in the Civil Rights Movement.
