FOREIGN FILM OF THE WEEK
This looks like an intriguing, low budget sci-fil flick from Spain. A man accidentally travels back to the past and meets himself there. In the process, he meets a naked girl in the midst of a forest, a weird guy whose face is covered by a pink bandage, and a disturbing mansion on top of a hill. All of these pieces create an unpredictable jigsaw where terror, drama and suspense lead to an unthinkable crime. Critics are saying Timecrimes
is nifty little thriller, yet somewhat predictable.
AN AUTHENTIC AMERICAN CRIME DRAMA
What Doesn't Kill You
This is good pick if you like American crime dramas. What Doesn't Kill You
stars Mark Ruffalo (Brian) and Ethan Hawke (Paulie) as friends who grew up like brothers on the gritty streets of South Boston. They do whatever it takes to survive while living by the code in their dog-eat-dog neighborhood. Petty crimes and misdemeanors grow into more serious offenses, and eventually, they fall under sway to organized crime boss Pat Kelly. Critics are saying that it may not be such an original story, but it is performed well.
A GRUMPY OLD MAN VS. ASIAN PUNK GANGSTERS
Clint Eastwood needs a vacation. In Gran Torino
, Walt Kowalski is a grumpy, borderline-hateful, Korean War veteran who can't get along with either his kids or his neighbors. As the plot thickens, he gets entangled with young Asian gang members who obviously haven't seen his old-school classics. Critics are saying it's unpretentious and a funny humanist drama.
