Trust Movies has fallen down on the job of late. He apologizes for this and promises to start doing a better job covering new DVD releases of note -- which was, in fact, how he began his reviewing career some years back. The opportunity to cover new films and interview their directors seems to be presenting itself more often. This can be awfully enticing, but as the economy continues to tailspin, with jobs disappearing and money growing tighter, there'll be more DVD watching and less venturing out to cinemas for most of us. So here's a heads-up on a couple of just-released movies worth your consideration.
|Also worth viewing is NOBEL SON, the older film from Randall Miller that, for some reason, received a more recent theatrical release than did his later and immensely pleasurable Bottle Shock. "Son" received short shrift from many critics upon its theatrical opening a few months ago, but don't let that stop you from renting this "fun" ride from Mr. Miller, who, on the basis of these two movies seems happy to provide us with what might be called "entertainments" -- diversions, distractions -- for our debauched age.|
