Surprise, surprise…there’s a whole boatload of stuff opening this weekend that gets the (much sought after, I’m sure) Reverse Shot stamp of approval. In fact, it’s nearly enough to make one emerge from the cinephilic doldrums that has been keeping us enervated for so long. No, you don’t have to see Borat for the fifth time for a good belly laugh: just hop on to the latest vehicle for the Christopher Guest Community Players, the deliciously depressing For Your Consideration; you don’t need to mourn the dearth of semi-polemical debate stirrers either, now that Linklater’s decidedly un deliciously depressing Fast Food Nation, which Linklater eases down your throat like a hot toddy full of castor oil, is out—two takes: here and here; and by Jove, there’s even a really good frickin’ James Bond movie playing!
Additionally, with Two or Three Things I Know About Her back on the big screen in a new print, and the Jacques Rivette and Rossellini retrospectives (read more right here on this blog) ongoing, there’s simply no excuse to remain a slave to the Netflix queue.
