DVD Roundup

What’s on DVD this week?  Why, quirky indie romcoms and pointless exercises in shocking behaviour, of course.

awaywego Away We Go – Sam Mendes (American Beauty, Revolutionary Road) goes indie in this quirky romcom starring Maya Rudolph, who was so terrible for so long on Saturday Night Live.

filthandwisdom Filth and Wisdom – Madonna’s directorial debut; apparently it’s all filth and no wisdom.   Roger Ebert called it “a pointless exercise in “shocking” behavior.”   Sounds like another movie out on DVD this week.  Namely….

gilfriend experience

The Girlfriend Experience – Steven Soderbergh’s latest experiment stars a “real” porn actress as a high class call girl in New York.   I tried to watch this(because of Soderbergh, not Sasha Grey) and it was so boring and wordy I gave up.

managementManagement – Steve Zahn, Jennifer Aniston and Woody Harrelson in a quirky indie romcom.   Aniston seems to be modelling her career after Woody Harrelson, so it’s about time they worked together.

Monsters vs. Aliens – kids won’t get the references to 70’s b-horror movies(at least, they shouldn’t)but their parents will (at least, they should.)

shrink Shrink – Witness a talented actor who has lost interest in acting.  Ever since Kevin Spacey left Hollywood to direct the Old Vic Theatre in London, his film performances have felt like called-in, “I just need the paycheck” efforts.   Is Shrink any better than “21” or “Superman Returns” or “United States of Leland?”  Probably not.
