Within the past couple weeks we have seen some excellent movies, here are some we especially feel are worth mentioning:
First film in awhile that Steve Buscemi has directed, featuring many actors you're all familiar with (ie - Liv Tyler, Casey Affleck, Kevin Corrigan, Seymour Castle). Jose could empathize with Jim's character, not having the sunniest outlook on life yet finding someone who forces you to change that.
Kelly viewed this film at SoHo's famed Angelika Theater while in NYC last weekend. While undeniably disturbing, its characters and graphic scenes left a very lasting impression. Warning: please don't see this movie on a date!
Thank You For Smoking
Based on the best-selling novel of the same name. Overall, a strong cast (where Aaron Eckhart and Rob Lowe give especially memorable performances) working from a witty script. Examines the underbelly of Big Tobacco and the hypocrisy across the board in major corporations.
My Date With Drew
An endearing documentary-esque film that made us both laugh and cringe through its entirety. One man, virtually penniless in Hollywood, on an epic quest to obtain a date with his lifelong crush, Drew Barrymore.
Preview: Duck Season
We will be seeing this Mexican film tomorrow evening to take advantage of Cleveland Cinema's $5 showings on Mondays.
