A solid week sees 2014’s slow start gaining pace.
The Great Beauty. One of 2013 most highly praised movies will be subject to a more thorough examination tomorrow, as a part of our new greater emphasis on home video. It will surprise nary many to hear that Luca Bigazzi’s heavily lauded cinematography is perfectly at home in high definition.
Museum Hours. One of the real favourites of the festival season, Jem Cohen’s enigmatic picture looks set to find a wider audience on home video, following a limited theatrical run last Autumn.
You’re Next. Adam Wingard’s ‘Mumblegore’ indie horror plays like a post-modern Home Alone. Shami Vinson is the breakout star, while the ubiquitous Joe Swanberg is a highlight of the film’s supporting ensemble.
