The Documentary Type
Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden? - Before you write this movie off as one that sounds like it was done by those guys that make stupid teen movies (I almost did), go watch the trailer. It’s done by the guy who made Supersize Me, and chronicles his quest to find Osama Bin Laden. And the trailer plays Gogol Bordello music.
Planet B-Boy - A documentary on the breakdancing culture. This movie looks awesome.
Young at Heart - A group of elderly people in New England sing covers of great rock songs. This is a must-see.
The Artsy Type
Les Chansons D'Amour - I’m really excited about this one. Three people are each in love with the other two and have a fascinating relationship. French musicals ftw.
The Visitor - College professor with a ho-hum life accidentally meets a young couple, and his life gets turned around when as they become friends. This movie looks really good.
Smart People - The trailer didn’t impress me all that much, but I really want this movie to be a good one. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
O Ano em que Meus Pais Saíram De Férias - A Brazilian boy is taken in by his Jewish grandfather’s neighbor (?) when his parents are exiled. I can’t put my finger on it, but something about this movie really appeals to me.
Backseat - Two guys go on a roadtrip to get away from life and have wild antics along the way. This movie will probably either be really good or pretty dumb, so I hope for the former.
Son of Rambow - A movie about two boys filming a movie. It wowed the crowds at Sundance, and I think “delightful” would be a good word to describe it. They asked us to help promote the movie through Graffiti, and I wish we could’ve :(.
The Exciting Type
Roman De Gare - Follows the stories of three people, who may not be exactly who they claim to be. I’m not sure if this is going to be a thriller, but it seems pretty exciting, and clever. I’m excited to see Dominique Pinon.
Flawless - I love bank robbery movies! This one stars an unlikely duo trying to pull an inside job.
Spiral - I personally will not be watching this, but if you’re into creepy, disturbing horror movies then this one’s for you.
The Funny Type
Priceless - Huzzah! Another rockstar French cast. It’s a remake of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and it looks like it won’t disappoint. That, and I love Audrey Tautou.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall - 40 Year Old Virgin? Knocked Up? Superbad? Yeah, their new one is coming out. Go watch it.
You Don’t Mess with the Zohan - I haven’t been excited for an Adam Sandler movie in a while, but this one sure does look fun.
Be Kind Rewind - A movie about Jack Black making movies? Heck yes!
