There’s a movie for every taste but it helps to know what you’re looking for. Here are some suggestions that might please those on your list.
If you’re like me and love a good mystery you can’t go wrong with three new foreign films: The Secret in Their Eyes (Argentinean), where a retired lawyer re-opens a closed case with surprising results, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Swedish) and Girl Who Played with Fire (Swedish), both from the popular books by Stieg Larsson.
And if you want something fun try the great HBO comedy series Bored to Death or Robert Downey Jr. as a very energetic Sherlock Holmes. For the younger set watch for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World which is due out in DVD in November. City Island is another film that is sure to please.
For great documentaries the variety is amazing! Everything from the delightful Babies to Michael Jackson’s This is it to Bill Maher’s Religulous or Michael Moore’s Capitalism: a Love Story to the incredible Oceans.
