The Weekender: Everybody was Kung Fu fighting

Movie of the Week

The Raid 2
Gareth Evans returns with more beautifully choreographed insanity. While the first one wasn’t quite as great as its rapturous reviews suggested, it was still a blast and a completely different experience from American action flicks. This sequel picks up right where the original left off, so I’m expecting more of the same.

Also opening:
Draft Day
Rio 2

Finding Vivian Maier – The Magnolia
Jodorowsky’s Dune – Angelika Dallas, Angelika Plano
Joe* – Angelika Dallas, Angelika Plano

Sabrina (1954)
When people say, “They don’t make ’em like they used to,” they’re often referring to movies by Billy Wilder. Here’s a lovely romantic comedy that never, ever feels to cutesy or convoluted. And it’s impossible to beat the effortless chemistry of Humphrey Bogart, Audrey Hepburn and William Holden. Wilder has both a way with actors and a way with story that’s rarely matched these days. This is almost a perfect movie, so go buy it pronto.
