Two reviews of movies opening this week just went up on About.com: David Gordon Green’s drama Snow Angels and the Jason Statham heist flick The Bank Job. This afternoon, I’m seeing Michael Haneke’s U.S. remake of his own Funny Games, and press screenings for New Directors/New Films start tomorrow.
In the meantime, a few items of note:
- Fresh off of etree, listen to a track from last week’s MMW show.
- David Hudson reports that Kriemhild was stabbed!
- Major Cyrillus’s Mystic Trip to Mars finds its tragic end, just in time for Commander Koenig’s birthday. Herzlichen Glückwunsch — just don’t celebrate with this guy! (NSFW)
- Dan Sallitt on Michael Clayton
- Lars von Trier’s music video for the Kingdom theme song.
- HiddenTrack’s Cover Wars feature Not Fade Away.
