What I Watched, What You Watched #287


soft-skinOnly two movies this week, one you already know about, that being Chappie (read my review here), and the other is this coming Tuesday’s new Criterion Blu-ray release, Francois Truffaut‘s The Soft Skin and I’m going to tell you what, this is an excellent movie. I am going to write up a full review once I get through all the special features, but this is French New Wave by way of Alfred Hitchcock with a whiff of Gone Girl. Seriously, I loved the hell out of this movie and can’t wait to dig into everything the new release features.

Otherwise, I was going to see ’71 on Friday, but the 10 AM screening was something I just couldn’t make, which was quite upsetting since I really wanted to see that one. Hopefully I can find some time to fit it in the schedule once it hits Seattle theaters.

Hopefully your week’s were a little more productive than mine. As for this coming week, my only screening in theaters is Run All Night, but I suspect I’ll be seeing several at home and I also have an interview setup for Tuesday with It Follows director David Robert Mitchell. I’m looking forward to that.
