Judi Dench and Steve Coogan (zzzzz) are two unlikely companions on a journey to find her long lost son in the highly acclaimed new comedy from director Stephen Frears (zzzzz). Based on an incredible true story (zzzzz).
Vainglorious anti-porn pseudofeminism. I see through you, Joseph. A film that wants to have its cake, gobble it, then call James Franco to talk about the finer points of not only having your cake, but, also, eating it. One day they will choke. I haven’t watched this yet (I will), but I’m probably right, ha ha ha.
JEUNE ET JOLIE:
I shall be watching Jeune & Jolie for the simple fact that the story takes place over the course of a year and is divided into seasonal segments, each separated by a Françoise Hardy song. Simple pleasures.
FIRE IN THE BLOOD:
John Pilger: “Fire in the Blood is one of the most powerful, important and humane documentaries I have ever seen. It’s the story of ordinary people standing up to unaccountable power. The struggle to save millions from the ravages of untreated HIV is revealed as a struggle against the new lords of the world, transnational corporations, their greed and lies. Genuine hope is rare these days — you’ll find it in this film.”
SAVING MR BANKS:
Disney do Disney? Pitchfork once reviewed a Jet album by posting a YouTube video called ‘monkey peeing in his own mouth’. Get my drift?
