week in film and tv 2.26.2011

 

exit through the gift shop (2010)

interesting documentary about street artists with a twist at the end. it portrays the works of banksy and shepard fairey (obey giant) among others. without giving too much away, just watch it. this film is up for an oscar and will likely win.

 

the runaways (2010)

music biographies are among my favorite kind of films. i had no idea that the runaways existed before joan jett and the heartbreakers. i liked this one and still can’t believe that dakota fanning is not a little girl anymore.

 

 

i’m still here (2010)

this is a horrible movie about joaquin phoenix’s transition from actor to rapper. joaquin starts to look like zach galifianakis (whom i love) halfway through and there are strange conversations with edward james olmos, sean combs, and ben stiller. it all seems forced and phony. and he can’t rap for crap. so it’s gotta be a hoax.

 

 

long way round (2004)

this is the second time we’ve watched this series. i love ewan mcgregor and michael loves motorcycles so it works out. it is an incredible journey of two friends riding motorcycles from london to new york. there is a second series, long way down, where ewan and charley ride from scotland to all the way down to south africa.

  1. i love long way round! i had a huge crush on charley by the end and my love for ewan remained strong (like anything could change that!). that had to have been a pretty amazing experience.
