Salt, with Angelina Jolie. Fine summer spy fun. Don't expect anything too deep. The NYT is right on target. Recommended.
Inception. Cool, original and fun. Certainly one of the better movies I have seen this year but it is not as good as Matrix. I think the NYT is a bit too hard on the film, but otherwise captures the issues pretty well. Highly recommended.
Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work. A fascinating look into what it is like to live the life of Joan. She is crazy in her way, and an astounding workaholic, but I came away from the movie with more empathy than when I went in, and not just because she has a library full of real books. The NYT review again hits the right note. Recommended.
