I plan on seeing the new noir crime thriller IN BRUGES this weekend. I also have last year's Beatles musical ACROSS THE UNIVERSE on dvd. I also have last year's independent high school satire ROCKET SCIENCE to check out on dvd.
Really looking forward to IN BRUGES. Roger Ebert gave it 4 stars and here's a link to his review:
Manohla Dargis in the New York Times (one of my other favorite critics) seemed to really like it as well. Here's her review:
I love stylish, dark, R-rated gangster thrillers like SNATCH, LOCK, STOCK & TWO SMOKING BARRELS, LAYER CAKE, SEXY BEAST, etc. I am hoping that IN BRUGES lives up to those titles above.
