Published Feb 19, 2010If your weekend plans include a little movie watching, Exclaim! has got you covered. Check out all the latest DVD reviews over at our Recently Reviewed motion section.
Those Coen brothers have done it again with A Serious Man, their most recent film about a professor whose wife prepares to leave him, while his brother won't move out of his house. In The Damned United, Michael Sheen plays Brian Clough, the former manager of British football (read: soccer) franchise, Leeds United, in this sports drama based on the best-selling book.
Socially doomed and mildly twisted Robert Mutt (Josh Pearce) becomes king of his insane asylum after an attempt at taking his own life in You Might As Well Live, a (perhaps surprisingly) charming comedy. And if it's charming you're looking for, check out Amreeka, the story of a Palestinian family who must adapt to life in America and the cultural alienation that comes with it, with some endearingly funny bits of culture shock along the way.
Also out for your viewing pleasure this week: The Time Traveler's Wife, No Impact Man, $9.99 and Bronson.
Our Exclaim!-recommended pick of the week is Ong Bak 2: The Beginning, which stars (and was directed by) Thai martial artist Tony Jaa. If you need some convincing on this one, wait until you see Tony Jaa sprint across a stampede of elephants.
