Another slim picking week, that is if you’re not into some well-known directors. Sources are IMDB and Box Office Mojo.
Red Hook Summer [dir. Spike Lee]
Time to go back to Brooklyn. After Do the Right Thing, I think Lee has had a very interesting time, doing everything from heist movies to sex comedies to war dramas, but what I don’t like about it is how few the good movies are. It looks great, but the vibe I’m getting from the digital cinematography holds me back.
2 Days in New York [dir. Julie Delpy]
Ooh, Woody Allen as a French girl! (kidding) I have been a fan of Delpy ever since Before Sunrise, my favorite romance movie along with Before Sunset, but it’s a shame how her career never quite took off. I haven’t seen 2 Days in Paris, but to anyone who has seen it, does it look like more of the same? Still seeing it because of Delpy.
Other movies are:Meet the Fokkens [dirs. Gabrielle Provaas, Rob Schröder]
Goats [dir. Christopher Neil]
The Green Wave [dir. Ali Samadi Ahadi]
Looks like a Waltz with Bashir rip-off, not that I liked that movie…
And there’s a Max and the Junkmen and a Total Recall re-release.
I’m really glad for this thread as most of these films would fly under my radar if it wasn’t here.
I like animation and animated documentaries are particularly compelling to me, all the more weird since I don’t like documentaries. I would like to see The Green Wave quite a bit.
The others I’m not too interested in.
Red Hook is my most anticipated film of the year, expecting big things from it.
