Revanche (2008)
Götz Spielmann
Austria
121 minutes
___

A solid drama from Austrian director Götz Spielmann!  Johannes Krisch delivers a near perfect performance as the revenge-fueled thief.  His relationship with is father is particularly captivating.  Overall, an interesting twist on the cop/robber formula.

POM Wonderful Presents:  The Greatest Movie Ever Sold (2011)
Morgan Spurlock
United States
90 minutes 
___

Super Size Me's Morgan Spurlock strikes again with this documentary about advertising and product placement in movie and television.  Though not as informative as his previous work, TGMES is still interesting (and troubling).

Piranha (2010)
Alexandre Aja
United States
88 minutes
___

Switch your brain to “off” and enjoy the dumb fun that is Piranha (minus the pointless 3D).  Feminists beware.

Fringe - Season 1 (2008)
J.J. Abrams, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Creators)
United States
20 episodes x approx. 44 minutes
___

J.J. Abrams does it again!  Although I only got hooked after the first six episodes, Fringe is one of my favourite shows right now.

Silent Movie (1976)
Mel Brooks
United States
87 minutes
___

Features some funny visual jokes and cameos (Marcel Marceau!), but overall it felt like a waste of my time.  Stitching a few sketches together just doesn’t cut if for me.

The Mechanic (1972)
Michael Winner
United States
100 minutes
___

Features one of the most abrupt ending I have ever seen, but apart from that the original Mechanic is a solid Bronson movie.  The very first scene, which is dialogue-free, is particularly interesting.

A classic thriller.  The Happening was better though.  Just kidding.

Bad Lieutenant (1992)
Abel Ferrara
United States
96 minutes
___

This depressing descent into Hell of a corrupt and drug addicted lieutenant is both fascinating and devastating.  Abel Ferrara’s long take aesthetic really highlights Harvey Keitel’s flawless performance which is often built on improvisation (or at least it feels like it).  This is best illustrated in the intense church scene where Keitel’s character confronts Jesus.

The Squid and the Whale (2005)
Noah Baumbach
United States
81 minutes 
___

A quirky comedy with incredibly flawed but ultimately lovable characters.  Jeff Daniels is excellent as the frustrated and bourgeois writer/father.  The movie’s feel and aesthetic is reminiscent of Wes Anderson’s universe (after all, Baumbach did write Fantastic Mr. Fox and Life Aquatic for Anderson).
