New Releases, 17 March 2009

Before we get to this week's releases it should be said that last week had one of the best New Movie Tuesdays ever, but it was also one of the worst weeks for working computers. There was no post as a result, but don't let that stop you from watching movies--SYNECDOCHE NEW YORK, HAPPY-GO-LUCKY, RACHEL GETTING MARRIED, MILK and LET THE RIGHT ONE IN all came out. All critically acclaimed, all played at Ragtag and all are worth a watch. But let's get on with this week's business shall we? Okay.

Penelope Cruz and Ben Kingsley star in this film which is probably about a beautiful young woman having an affair with a rugged, older, shorter, balder man

Unsettling thriller from Germany. Pretty sure it's Germany.

Hey--they made a movie about a comic book. Hot dog!

Documentary about kids, cancer, healthy eating practices and other riveting, edge-of-your-seat topics

Akira Kurosawa's first color feature, a film about street people in Tokyo. Ebert's 1975 review is the first link, and the second is a thoughtful essay on the film by Jamie S. Rich

All right people, that's all the movies this time. Have a great week, and keep on...doing whatever you're doing, I don't know what that is.
