Coming Distractions February 16th, 2010

Good Hair: I highly recommend you watch Good Hair. When Chris Rock's 6 year old daughter asked her dad why she doesn't have good hair, he set out to find out what "good hair" means to black women in America. He visits hairdressers' and barber shops, chats with famous people (Reverend Al Sharpton and Maya Angelou included), and attends an outrageous hair competition. Very funny stuff. And a well-crafted documentary to boot.

Coco Before Chanel: I want Coco apr├Ęs Chanel, where the focus is the fashion and not just the life of Coco. But Audrey Tautou's a cutie, so I'll probably watch it...

Revanche: "Whose fault is it if life doesn't go your way?" That should be the tagline for A Serious Man.

Hunger: Based on the 1981 IRA hunger strike led by Bobby Sands. Much anticipated (by me, at least). I expect that it will be well-made, and hard to watch (but not too hard, because it's only about 90 minutes long).

Law Abiding Citizen

Cabin Fever 2: Cabin Re-fevered? Directed by Ti West (House of the Devil), who wanted his name removed from the film after conflicts with the studio and producers, but no dice so he's publicly renounced the film. I liked Cabin Fever a lot. Though a lot of people disagree with me. Almost made me never want to shave my legs again. Almost.

Women in Trouble
