This week, because of the lack of new films hitting cinemas, I passed the time by watching a couple of classics (Les Diaboliques and Network) for the first time. I also re-watched Y Tu Mama Tambien and The Sting. I also grouped together the best performances of the year (here) and booked flights and tickets to MIFF. Today I'm going to check out Sunshine and Orangers.
Check out the top articles of the week (after the jump):
Univarn @ A Life in Equinox shares his feelings on the use of "Well that's two hours of my life I'll never get back."
Sam Bowron @ A Nightmare on Samityville Street reviews Devil, a film that wasn't quite as bad as I expected.
Nick Prigge presents a pretty solid case as to why he believes Keira Knightley's performance in Atonement isn't too bad @ Anomalous Material. Far from a Knightley fan, and with my interest wavering following Saoirse Ronan's exit from the film, I'm not that easily swayed. But its certainly an entertaining read.
Thomas Caldwell recently caught a screening of Taxi Driver. Check out what he had to say @ Cinema Autopsy.
James Blake Ewing @ Cinema Sights is a great writer. Check out his review of Somewhere, Sofia Coppola's film from last year that I have continued to warm to.
Stevee @ Cinematic Paradox gives Blue Valentine the 'I was Perfect' rating. It's a wonderful film.
Alex @ Film Forager reviews the Andrei Tarkovsky classic, Stalker. I have to watch that film again.
Sam Fragoso has had another busy week @ Duke and the Movies. Amongst his reviews are Horrible Bosses and Cinema Paradiso.
Tom Clift @ Movie Reviews by Tom Clift didn't like Tree of Life. At all. People have been walking out of my cinema all week with varying degrees of disgruntlement. Tom's is an exceedingly well written negative response.
Colin Harris @ Pick 'n' Mix Flix gives David Schwimmer's new film, Trust, a perfect 10/10. I'm intrigued.
Finally, The Mad Hatter reflects on the Summer of Film @ The Dark of the Matinee.
