- It is visually stunning. It is incredibly intense, suspenseful— it’s got everything going for it. I would put Meru on the top of any list that has to do with mountaineering.
- It’s very Hitchcockian in a way. It reminds me of Vertigo.
End of the Tour, R
- A very interesting insight into the impact fame has on a sensitive, creative individual
- After gunshots suffered in a concentration camp necessitate facial reconstruction surgery, a woman tries to reconnect with her husband.
7 Chinese Brothers, not rated
- Unassuming but witty comedy with Jason Schwartzman as a floundering job hopper
- Breathtaking documentary about the perilous relationship between three men and a mountain
Jimmy's Hall, PG-13
- For 25 years, British filmmaker Ken Loach has been making films of unbelievable quality. He’s a guy who puts his money where his heart is.
End of Tour, R
- The film is basically a love letter to (David Foster Wallace).
Digging for Fire,
- I really kind of like this movie a lot. This is about a married couple…the reference here is looking for the fire in their relationship, which they’ve kind of lost. It’s about passion.
