Hollywood has put out a lot of crap lately, though I agree with Roger L. Simon that Winter’s Bone is excellent. Also worth taking a look at is Eichmann, a film that was just released to DVD that hardly anyone has seen or even heard of.
One of my readers in Poland bought this for me as a gift (thanks, Małgorzata), and I urge everyone here to either buy it or rent it.
Somehow the events depicted never cease to shock and appall me all over again whenever I’m forced to confront them. That’s as it should be, and it’s the reason films like this need to be made and seen by as many people as possible.
