Keeping Track (May 24, 2012)
by HELEN GEIB
Last Week at the Movies
The Avengers (2d viewing)
Last Week at Home
Maybe- Korean indie that might have worked as a short film
500 Days of Summer- at a party to celebrate the film club’s 500th event
Near Dark- starting a Kathryn Bigelow retrospective in the film club
The Big Swindle- Korean con game movie with a cool flashback structure
Lifting King Kong- remarkably weepy sports drama
The Taking of Pelham One Two Three- loved the final shot of Matthau’s Lt. Garber
Killer Elite- draws interesting institutional parallels between “good” and “bad” guys
Once Upon a Time (2008)- lighthearted adventure set in Seoul in the last days of the Japanese occupation
New in Theaters This Weekend
MIB 3 and Chernobyl Diaries. It works out well for me that I don’t want to see either of these, as Memorial Day weekend means Cinevent.
What have you been watching? What are you looking forward to?
