Critical Week: At world's end
More populist entertainment was had in the relentlessly hilarious Bridesmaids, starring Kristen Wiig, although the relentlessly unfunny Bad Teacher, starring Cameron Diaz wasn't nearly as much fun. The indie film this week was Jamie Thraves' Treacle Jr, a South London comedy-drama that's slightly uneven but will probably be praised like Thraves' The Low Down. The foreign film was David's Birthday, a moving but rather operatic drama from Italy. And the documentary was Born to Be Wild 3D, telling the superb stories of two women who rescue baby animals in breathtaking, razor-sharp Imax.
