Ready for some new cinema releases? A couple to check out…
MY TOP PICKS TO SEE
My top pick to see this week is THE DOUBLE which tells the story of a clerk in a government agency who finds his unenviable life taking a turn for the horrific with the arrival of a new co-worker who is both his exact physical double and his opposite – confident, charismatic and seductive with women. Looks interesting.
OTHERS TO SEE
I didn’t think this was much of this movie – but a lot of people, including critics, don’t mind BAD NEIGHBOURS (just NEIGHBORS in the US). A couple with a newborn baby face unexpected difficulties after they are forced to live next to a fraternity house. **1/2 for me.
If you like food and just some good fun check out CHEF (which I will review shortly). A chef who loses his restaurant job starts up a food truck in an effort to reclaim his creative promise, while piecing back together his estranged family.
BELLE is not getting the high average scores I thought it would. An illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral is raised by her aristocratic great-uncle.
MAYBE MAYBE NOT
Don’t have much information about HEALING about – at the tail end of a 16-year sentence, an inmate is sent to a low-security, pre-release prison with a special program that pairs men with injured game birds. I’ll let you know more if I see it.
That’s it for this week. See you at the movies!
