This week, I’m recommending an arty thriller, The American with George Clooney and two gritty crime dramas – the true story Mesrine: Killer Instinct and the Aussie fictional Animal Kingdom. For a date movie, there is the charming and relatively smart romantic comedy Going the Distance. The hardhitting documentary The Tillman Story is one of the year’s best.
For trailers and other choices, see Movies to See Right Now.
My DVD of the Week is one of the year’s best so far: Ajami. For my recent DVD choices (including trailers), see DVDs of the Week.
Movies on TV include Underworld USA, Soylent Green, Sunset Boulevard and What’s Up, Tiger Lily? all coming up on TCM.
