Tough Fight for Limited Releases

August 13th, 2004

Four more entries try for a slice of the limited release pie. And while there is certainly a wide range in movies coming out, it is expansion of two previously released films, Garden State and Napoleon Dynamite, that are getting all the news coverage.

Cowards Bend the Knee - Reviews
A Canadian film from the same director who did The Saddest Music in the World. This one may be equally as bizarre and even more critically acclaimed. The film has love, revenge, blue hands in a jar, murder, hairdressers, whores and of course, hockey. The film opens in one theatre in New York tonight.

Danny Deckchair - Reviews
Sweet, charming and light are being used to describe this film. Unfortunately, so are limp, lame and dumb. Rhys Ifans plays the titular character who ties a bunch a helium filled balloons to his deck chair and sails away to a new life. Unlikely to be the best movie you've seen this summer, nor will it be the worse. Solidly average.

Tom Dowd and the Language of Music - Reviews
A documentary about Tom Dowd, one of the most influential recording engineers. Tom Dowd helped create some of the most memorable Rock, Jazz and R&B songs as well as revolutionizing the recording process.

We Don't Live Here Anymore - Reviews
Charting the rough waters that arise when a man has an affair with his best friend's spouse, who just happens to be his wife's best friend. Reviews are very strong, especially among the Cream of the Crop reviewers. The film opens on seven screens tonight.
