The Weekender: Free Your Mind

Movie of the Week

Wally Pfister, the Oscar-winning cinematographer of Inception and Moneyball either nails his directorial debut, a cyber-thriller, with nail-biting precision. Or it just completely falls off the rails, wasting its talented cast. I hope it’s the former.

Also opening:
A Haunted House 2
Heaven is for Real

Dom Hemingway – Angelika Dallas, Angelika Plano
The Railway Man – Angelika Plano, The Magnolia
Under the Skin – Angelika Dallas

Blu-ray Pick

Double Indemnity
Double Indemnity
Another week, another Billy Wilder classic. This is the film noir prototype, the very best example of its genre. Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck are simply magnificent as the frog and the scorpion, respectively. It’s dark, ugly but ultimately entertaining and rewarding. Hard to believe this came out 70 years ago.
