Boxhagener Platz (2010) ✭✭✭✭
Slice of East German life circa-1968. Grim yet very funny. Gudrun Ritter is a scream.
Nights of Alice (2010) ✭✭½
French TV time waster. Good to see the great Machu Meril again (She was Godard's Une femme Marie in 1964), but the film has too many subplots and a draggy pace. Plus it's dumb.
Michelle Williams is great here as a runaway wife, but the movie falls a bit flat. Sarah Polley is a decent director and I expected more.
