After last week's bounty of movie releases, this week's major debuts were pretty lacklustre. I did review a few small things playing locally, however:
* A Cinema of Mutual Respect, a double-feature of international experimental cinema.
* A Spell to Ward Off the Darkness, a trippy existential exploration of the Scandinavian landscape and mindset.
* Winter in the Blood, a compelling indie drama about the Native American experience in the American midwest.
WATCH IT AT HOME...
* Equus, a bold adaptation of the modern classic by director Sidney Lumet.
* Master of the House, a charming silent drama from Carl Th. Dreyer.
* Paradise: Hope, the final installment of the Austrian Paradise trilogy.
In comics today...
* The fourth chapter of Archer Coe and the Thousand Natural Shocks went online today. Our hero is really in the thick of it now!
* You can also download the complete Liberty collection, featuring all the annuals benefitting the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. That includes the year I edited and wrote for.
You really want to go to a comic book shop and get the hardcover, though. That's a lot of comics to have under one package. Here's the info from Image Comics.
