Turns out animated Middle East is just as brown as real Middle East. Beautifully drawn though and if you aren't a crybaby about subtitles I don't see how you could fail to like this film.


That looks and sounds really interesting now! I may have to pick that up sometime!
DO IT!!! In fact I'm sure it's still in theatres if you have a good cinema in your area. You won't regret it one bit.

Capturing The Friedmans - A documentary about jewish father and son pedophiles from Great Neck, Long Island. I had high hopes that it'd be interesting but it turned out to be a car crash of a movie. The "fly-on-the-wall" home movies of a family in meltdown kinda the only half decent thing about it.

Death at a Funeral Hilarious. Very good. Enjoyed myself the whole way through.

City of Violence
Fun action movie with a clear love of action cinema that came before it, I enjoyed it immensely even if it's doing nothing new.

Veronica Voss (1982)
Gozo: The Life of Hunter S. Thompson (2007)
Richard Pryor: Here and Now (1983)

All very meh (although VV had its moments.) When Richard Pryor bases an act on his seven months of sobriety you know you're in trouble. I guess that covers drug use for January.

Take the Lead.

It was about Antonio Banderas teaching intercity black kids to ballroom dance.

Did I mention Antonio Banderas?

Body Of Lies Espionage drama with dirty tricks on all sides. Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe.

Pretty good with the appropriate twists and turns and a pro American bias.

A diversion.

I hope I never get tortured.

Passed Nana Glen today in Northern New South Wales where Russell Crowe lives. Probably the best country on the planet for my money.

Pineapple Express- I loved it. I laughed and laughed and was sober the whole time. Awesome movie. I love James Franco and Seth Rogen together.

Paranoid Park

Supplementing a short story that has little dialogue with a full length film of artistic cinema does not make for an entertaining or engaging experience.

Gus Van Sant does some interesting things, and granted I have seen worse artistic cinema. Not enough happens and not enough is said.

Actually would have made for an AWESOME short story or made for tv 1 hr movie.
