Beautifully photographed ghost story set in 1950s Portugal. Lots of long takes that linger well after the actors have left the frame. Gorgeous, artistic trip back in time to a faraway place.

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS

10/9/2011

 
Smart move for the franchise. Michael Fassbender is a bad ass mofo, and McAvoy is great at placing two fingers to his temple and making me believe that he's reading somebody's mind. Lots of action and effects, the plot zooms along and constantly pounds out the theme of acceptance. Heavy use of the Cold War. Contains obligatory stripper character and lingerie clad hostess scenes.

Beautiful documentary from Patricio Guzmán about the simultaneous quest of astronomers for the origins of life in distant galaxies, and archeologists and mothers search for the remains of The Disappeared in Chile's Atacama desert. Cinematic, moving.

EVERYTHING MUST GO

It's okay. More of a drama than a comedy. Will Ferrell makes it watchable.

BOARDWALK EMPIRE

The second season promises to live up to the first. So many hard hard guys and gorgeous yet conniving dolls. Love it.

Wow, this is good. Loved all the music from Wire and New Order. Ambitious project that features a great performance by Édgar Ramírez as Carlos the Jackal: International Douche.
