CARRIE ➡️ BREAKING THE WAVES ➡️
STATIONS OF THE CROSS ★★★★½ Composed evisceration of religious oppression.
NYMPHOMANIAC: VOLUME I [long version] ★★★½☆ The first part of Lars von Trier's sex opus played uncut yesterday. Surprisingly playful. Stellan Skarsgård is the essential element. Loquacious erudition, but nagging sense of lack of depth.
HISTORY OF FEAR ★½☆☆☆ Not close to being an epitome of such a bold title. Sub-sub-Michael Haneke
THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY [stars embargo until world premier]
Mildly disappointing directorial debut of Hossein Amini (DRIVE, THE WINGS OF THE DOVE). Viggo Mortensen and Oscar Isaac fight over underused Kirsten Dunst.
