BEGINNERS

12/7/2011

 
Gentle, sometimes funny yarn about an artist, his recently deceased / dying parents, and his commitment phobic French girlfriend. Kinda quirky, sweet story about love: romantic and familial.

BEAUTIFUL BOY

10/25/2011

 
Maria Bello is a beauty, and an amazing actress in this sad story about the parents of a young mass murderer.  If you're committed to the hand-held camera, this is the way to do it.

EVERYTHING MUST GO

10/5/2011

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

Limited, monochromatic animation for adults from Bill Plympton. 'S okay.

Dark, funny, weird; great cast, art direction & cinematography. Writer director Todd Solondz takes chances with taboo topics. His writing is tight. See it!

TRUST

7/31/2011

 
Liana Liberatois gives a stellar performance as a fourteen year-old who falls victim to an internet pedaphiliac. Clive Owen (and the rest of her family) suffers beautifully in this well-crafted drama.
