Hey all, this week we have a real treat on dvd, a flick that flew way way under the radar when it came out for what seemed like a few days, but it's a real great movie and my obvious PICK OF THE WEEK. It is:
This intimate road movie about a guy who's recently lost his mother and is on a search for his brother through the Pacific Northwest and California is a tour de force of acting and emotion. It hits all the right marks and has a fantastic cast including Lou Taylor Pucci, Zooey Deschanel, Jena Malone, Maura Tierney, and Judy Greer. Seek it out and thank me later!
-Some other good stuff out this week includes the incredibly well made home invasion horror flick The Strangers, Marvel's pseudo-reboot of The Incredible Hulk, and the latest in Kevin Smith's Q and A movies, this one called A Threevening with Kevin Smith. If you dig Kevin Smith, this isn't to be missed.
-Also out is the uneven ensemble film The Stone Angel and the rather terrible Creationism documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.
-My vintage pick this week is Into the Wild, which was robbed of a load of nominations last year, but is still just as powerful a film this year. If you've never seen it yet, go and give it a shot today!
