Bumping Off the Competition

September 2nd, 2005

A light week on the limited releases front with just four films, only one of which is opening in more than one theatre.

Games of Love and Chance - Reviews
The best reviewed release of the week with praise being heaped upon the cast of mostly newcomers. This is the sophomore effort from writer / director Abdel Kechiche, and he shows that Blame it on Voltaire was no fluke. The film opened on Wednesday at the IFC Center in New York City and should expand during the coming weeks.

Margaret Cho: Assassin - Reviews
Margret Cho's third concert film, but while her comedic touch is a lot more polished compared to her earlier work, the material has been used by a lot of comedians over the past few years and feels a bit stale. Even so, fans of hers will find plenty to enjoy here. Margret Cho: Assassin opens tonight in 8 theatres including the Quad Cinema in New York City and the Regent Showcase Theater in Hollywood.

Three Slaves Dancing - Reviews
A gay themed coming of age film from France. It's dark, gritty, realistic, as well as dull, banal and not particularly entertaining. Three Slaves Dancing opens tonight at the Angelika Film Center in New York City.

William Eggleston in the Real World - Reviews
A documentary about photographer William Eggleston, who was the first man to have a one-man exhibition of color photographs at the Museum of Modern Art. While most critics are giving the film a positive review, the reviews are not overwhelmingly positive. William Eggleston in the Real World opened on Wednesday at the Film Forum in New York City.
