In Theaters. You know things are looking grim when the most promising mainstream release of the week is the third film in an animated series. OK, we do get the Oscar nominated short films, so that’s something, but we are clearly still in the winter of our discontent — again. Next week promises to be […]
In Theaters. Count your blessings for movies that are still playing, movies that are being brought back, and Charlie Kaufman.

This is one those movies that you “have” to see or suffer a violent loss of pop culture social status.
