The end of silent films and the birth of talkies, sign me up! I've seen the trailer for this on the big screen and you can rest assured I will be pushing to see what looks to be a fantastic historical piece shot in stunning black and white.
Polanski knows how to spin a good drama and with this cast its hard to believe CARNAGE will not measure up.
Usually I'm a sucker for historical pieces but something about this retrospect on J. Edgar hasn't grabbed my attention. Don't think that means I won't check it out, its Clint Eastwood, of course I'm watching it.
This has the potential to be one the this year's best political pieces. Luc Besson hasn't blown me away in quite some time yet this just looks real special plus Michelle Yeoh and David Thewlis are extraordinary actors.
Never been much of a Marilyn Monroe fan but with Michelle Williams and dame Judi Dench involved this might be worth a look.
Though I haven't seen HUNGER, from what I've heard, SHAME is a sight to behold. Outside of my carnal desires to see the hyped eroticism both Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan are incredible actors that I would watch in practically anything they committed to.
Ralph Fiennes adapting Shakespeare, sold.
I have a man crush on both Jay and Mark Duplass. Everything they've put their hands on I've enjoyed and with them casting Jason Segel and Ed Helms I am thoroughly excited to see how this comedy turns out.
The reviews are out and while they haven't been all positive I'm ready to see Lars von Trier's latest theatrically.
Mexican drug cartels, beauty queens mixed together in a crime drama, not to sound too alpha male but this sounds exactly like what the doctor ordered.
Ballet in 3D, yup, I'm there!
I'm dying to see this movie. Tilda Swinton can do no wrong and based off buzz from Sundance and Fantastic Fest this is a movie not to be missed in 2011.
High praise coming from Fantastic Fest puts this film near the top of my must see list at AFI FEST.
Gael García Bernal is one of those actors that I have to see whatever he's done. Match that with a interesting synopsis and what looks to be breath-taking cinematography, THE LONELIEST PLANET is something I will be making an effort to check out.
Greta Gerwig is an actor that I have my eyes set on, each new role she takes on has been charming and sophisticated. You'd think I might be less interested in THE DISH AND THE SPOON with her in yet another romantic role but you would be incorrect.
This first still (pictured above) from the film along with the title WUSS have me intrigued enough to want to see this tale about a substitute teacher.
After DOGTOOTH director Yorgos Lanthimos has my undivided attention and this concept just sounds plain mind-boggling. Really looking forward to seeing how this twisted tale turns out.
This sounds intriguing and definitely worth a look.
Sci-fi, ding ding ding ding!
I have a sneaking suspicion this may be worth a look.
Director Nacho Vigalondo is another young director that has my full attention. TIMECRIMES is one of my favorites and after a solid amount of buzz coming from Fantastic Fest this year you can bet your bottom dollar I will be making it a priority to see Nacho's latest film.
The synopsis alone has me lures me in add the fact that Joshua Marston is directing and I certain will make an effort to see this drama.
This is a must see! The imagery and synopsis instantly attract my attention.
Highly touted at Fantastic Fest means this is a top priority at AFI FEST.
A number of very good friends absolutely loved this movie which means I must see it so I can share in the pleasure.
Look at the image (pictured above), that alone is reason enough to be peeing my pants in anticipation for this film. I've heard nothing but praise about it and its been a film I've wanted to see since hearing buzz from Austin's South by Southwest Film Festival. There is nothing that will stop me from seeing this asap.
Remember AFI FEST 2011 runs November 3-10 and free tickets will be made available to the general public on October 27th at 10 a.m. PDT.
