Must see rentals

Since another weekend is upon us, I thought I would share some movie recommendations.

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen  is a wonderful movie – it’s a renter.  Though I’m disappointed I didn’t see it on the big screen -especially the State.  The only movie I’ve seen lately that wasn’t a fail in some way or another.  It was actually complete and whole, yet subtly complex; made a serious mockery out of the media.  But what I admired most was the ‘hope’ that resonated throughout the entire film.  It was nice, very refreshing.

The Intouchables  is also quite good.  However, the subject matter is quite heavy and profound.  I wasn’t ready for it.  That’s probably a good thing.  Probably would’ve talked myself  (and my wife ) out of seeing it.  There would’ve been hell to pay for that.  It’s also the first movie I’ve seen with all subtitles.  I’m not opposed to subtitled films.  I just don’t like to work that hard when I watch a movie.
