I hardly feel I need to say anything more about this film after my glowing review, so simply go see this movie. I can’t imagine anyone not absolutely loving it.

This film is rated G
Jonah Hex

Based on seeing Jonah Hex, it would appear the theatrical and DVD roles have been reversed for some films (primarily some the geek culture films). It used to be that studios would look at DVD sales as an added bonus to big theatrical receipts. However, it now appears some films are released in theaters to get a bit of a cushion before their unrated DVD and Blu-ray releases hit the shelves promising added sex and violence, which I am sure is exactly what WB has planned for this title.

This film is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, disturbing images and sexual content.
Cyrus

I said just about everything I need to say about this film for the time being in my review as I will be interviewing Jay Duplass and John C. Reilly next week. Initially I loved Cyrus, but on a second viewing a couple of curiosities showed their face and while I still like it, there are some reservations, which I discuss in my review and will bring up in my interviews.

This film is rated R for language and some sexual material.
The Killer Inside Me

I don’t have anything to say about this one at the moment as I will be seeing it in just a few short hours on Friday morning. Hopefully I will have a review online soon, but for now I’ll simply offer the trailer below.

This film is rated R for disturbing brutal violence, aberrant sexual content and some graphic nudity.
I Am Love

I saw this film at the Seattle International Film Festival and I cannot agree with all the positive reviews floating around out there. I Am Love starts off with a mildly interesting story about a well-to-do Italian family dealing with the passage of time as Tancredi, the patriarch of the family, has just put one of his sons and his grandson in charge of the family business, leaving one son out in the cold. However, the film’s focus isn’t on this issue, but instead on Emma (Tilda Swinton) who can’t seem to keep her legs closed as this turns into a bit of Tilda Swinton softcore porn more than anything else. Sure, it’s a beautifully shot film, but worthless in my eyes.

I Am Love has been compared to the works of Luchino Visconti, but having only seen The Leopard for the first time just recently I can only assume that has to do with the visual style and the subtle nod using the name Tancredi. No matter, this movie didn’t interest me nearly enough to explore the comparisons any further or to even care.

This film is rated R for sexuality and nudity.
