Critical Week: Now I'm a belieber!
This left the week's most challenging and interesting film as Confessions, an artful, offbeat Japanese revenge thriller. Comments on two other high-profile films were specifically embargoed by their distributors, so I can't really say anything about them yet, besides this: Matt Damon and Emily Blunt star in the fantasy-thriller The Adjustment Bureau, and Johnny Depp and Isla Fisher lend their voices to the animated comedy Rango.
This coming week, we'll be seeing Julie Taymor's all-star take on Shakespeare's The Tempest, Liam Neeson in the action thriller Unknown, Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell in Roman-era action in The Eagle, the Farrelly Brothers' buddy comedy Hall Pass and Wim Wenders' 3D Pina Bausch doc, cleverly titled Pina. But of course, the most important thing this week is this year's Oscar ceremony, which is coming on Sunday night. Is it in 3D too this year?
