NEW MOVIES!  AUGUST 19 - AUGUST 25, 2014
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 (USA, PG-13) - I like my SPIDER-MAN movies trashy, filled with teenage-level romantic drama and crammed to the brim with villains. If you feel like I do, then this fine cinematic accomplishment might just win out over SPIDER-MAN 3 in your estimation.
DIRECTED BY: Marc Webb
STARRING: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Campbell Scott, Embeth Davidtz, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti, Sally Field
METASCORE: 53, based on 49 Critics
FADING GIGOLO (USA, R) - Fiovarante takes to the corner to help out his cash-strapped friend, Murray. The gigolo is John Turturro and Murray is Woody Allen. I hear this one is rather endearing.
DIRECTED BY: John Turturro
STARRING: John Turturro, Woody Allen, Sharon Stone, Sofia Vergara, Vanessa Paradis, Liev Schreiber
METASCORE: 58, based on 38 Critics
*ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE (USA, R) - A depressed musician and his lover, Tilda Swinton, are shacked up away from the world. Then her wild sister comes into their lives and things get interesting. Oh yeah, and they're all centuries-old vampires. This is one of those movies I'm going to watch more than once. You'll see.
DIRECTED BY: Jim Jarmusch
STARRING: Jim Jarmusch, Tom Hiddleston, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Jeffrey Wright
METASCORE: 77, based on 40 Critics
THE QUIET ONES (UK, PG-13) - A group of researchers attempt to coax "unspeakable secrets" from a tortured young girl. Now, if you're following really closely then your cliché tally would come to 3. While I love what Hammer Films is trying to do, this one is a bit of a misfire.
DIRECTED BY: John Pogue
STARRING: Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Olivia Cooke, Erin Richards
METASCORE: 41, based on 24 Critics
GO FOR SISTERS (USA, Not Rated) - Fontayne calls up an old friend with whom she has lost contact. The friend is currently working as a parole officer. She also requests the help of a disgraced cop. Why does she need their help? Her son has gone missing at the Mexican border and that's not a good sign.
DIRECTED BY: John Sayles
STARRING: Lisa Gay Hamilton, Edward James Olmos, Yolonda Ross, Hilary Barraford, Mahershala Ali
METASCORE: 59, based on 23 Critics
#THE SACRAMENT (USA, R) - In recent years, Ti West has been the brightest beacon in horror, so this new one is kind of a big deal, at least to me. Found footage, cult communes, reunited siblings, and a struggle to survive - I'm in.
DIRECTED BY: Ti West
STARRING: Joe Swanberg, Amy Seimetz, Kate Lyn Sheil, AJ Bowen, Kentucker Audley
METASCORE: 51, based on 20 Critics
ROSEMARY'S BABY (USA, Not Rated) - Somehow, I don't think the powers-that-be thought mainstream TV audiences would take to the slow-paced, atmospheric, ambiguous nature of the original film. Meaning, much of what I loved about the original is probs gone.
DIRECTED BY: Agnieszka Holland
STARRING: Zoe Saldana, Patrick J. Adams, Jason Isaacs, Carole Bouquet, Christina Cole
METASCORE: 51, based on 27 Critics
12 O'CLOCK BOYS (USA, Not Rated) - This is a documentary about the 12 O'Clock Boys, an illegal dirt bike gang in Baltimore. Pug, a 13-year-old boy who has just lost his older brother, turns to the gang for guidance. This is an interesting glance at life in one of the most dangerous and economically depressed cities in the United States.
DIRECTED BY: Lotfy Nathan
METASCORE: 68, based on 20 Critics
FAUST (Russia, Not Rated) - This one takes place in the early 19th century. Faust desires to be a gentleman of the enlightened variety. He also desires lady Margarete. So, naturally, he sells his soul to the devil. This arty version of the old fable is the latest film from the director of RUSSIAN ARK.
DIRECTED BY: Aleksandr Sokurov
STARRING: Johannes Zeiler, Anton Adasinsky, Isolda Dychauk, Hanna Schygulla
METASCORE: 65, based on 16 Critics
^THE EMPTY HOURS (Mexico, Unrated) - Sebastian is 17 and in charge of his uncle's Mexican motel for extra-marital affairs and midnight rendezvous. One of the regulars, Miranda, is constantly made to wait by her lover. During their free time, Miranda and Sebastian develop some unruly twitterpation for one another.
DIRECTED BY: Aaron Fernandez Lesur
STARRING: Kristyan Ferrer, Adriana Paz
METASCORE: 81, based on 7 Critics
A PROMISE (France, Not Rated) - A married woman falls in love with her husband's friend right at the start of WWI. The war and their respective personal matters make it hard to be together. Well, that and the fact that she's a married woman and he's a friend of the husband. All is not fair in war and lust.
DIRECTED BY: Patrice Leconte
STARRING: Rebecca Hall, Alan Rickman, Richard Madden, Maggie Steed
METASCORE: 36, based on 7 Critics
WHEN I SAW YOU (Jordan, Not Rated) - The year is 1967 and tens of thousands of refugees from Pakistan have fled to Jordan. These refugees are living in camps and prefab houses waiting until the day they can return to their homeland. One of them is an eleven-year-old boy who has become separated from his father.
DIRECTED BY: Annemarie Jacir
STARRING: Mahmoud Asfa, Ruba Blal, Saleh Bakri
METASCORE: 71, based on 6 Critics
   
TO KILL A MAN (Chile, Not Rated) - Jorge is a middle class family man. However, his neighborhood has been taken over by thugs. As a diabetic, Jorge is pretty ticked off when these junkies mug him for his insulin needle one night. So he decides to take matters into his own hands and do a little cleansing of the streets.
DIRECTED BY: Alejandro Fernandez Almendras
STARRING: Daniel Antivilo, Daniel Candia, Ariel Mateluna, Alejandra Yañez
