Melancholia and The Skin I Live In

Two Films to Ruin Your Holiday Season

Midnight in Paris

Woody Allen still has a little gas left in the tank; while Midnight in Paris is not a great film, it is the best thing he has done in a long time.

Man on Wire

On August 7, 1974, an obscure French tightrope walker by the name of Philippe Petit did the unthinkable, walking between the two World Trade Center Towers on a tightrope.

In the Shadow of the Moon

Most of these surviving astronauts of the Apollo Moon Project participated in this documentary. The personal story told by these men was as enlightening as it was moving.

Real Steel

Lightweight, brain dead entertainment that is actually fun if accompanied by boys 20 years of age and younger

The Ides of March

Kill the Irishman

Without question, Kill the Irishman deserves to be ranked with The Godfather films as one of the best gangster movies in the history of Hollywood.

50/50

Recommended. A lovely little film whose pathos renders its admitted shortcomings largely insignificant.

What’s Your Number?

Likely to be shown in Dante’s Ninth Rung of Hell should Satan believe that someone might be having an unexpected good time.
