Plan My Mega Movie Weekend!
Thanks to a little show which ate my life for six weeks, I am woefully behind in my Oscar Contender movie watching. I've made it to a few screenings (reviews on the way soon!), but there are over ten films out right now that I need to see. I've got to get my popcorn-eatin', Ebert-imitatin' ass to the multiplex.
Help me, Obi Wans...which ones do you recommend? What should I see first? Second? Third? I'm planning a four or five movie weekend. I don't usually listen to critics (ironic, isn't it?), but I ALWAYS listen to ModFab readers. Because they're smarter.
- Absolute Wilson
- Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan
- Death of a President
- Flags of Our Fathers
- A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints
- Little Children
- Marie Antoinette
- The Prestige
- Running With Scissors
- Aguirre, The Wrath of God (which is playing at Film Forum with a new print, and it's one of my top ten films of all time, so I may have to go)
- Already seen The Departed (pretty good), Shortbus (also pretty good), The Last King of Scotland (great) and The Queen (not sure what all the fuss is about)
