For me, Saturday’s big winner was Matt Reeves‘ Let Me In, as I briefly noted in an iPhone jotting yesterday afternoon. Today I’ll be trying to catch Emilio Estevez‘s The Way, The Conspirator, Submarine, Errol Morris‘s Tabloid, Patricio Guzman‘s Nostalgia for the Light and perhaps a re-encounter with Alex Gibney‘s Client 9. What is that, six films? Sure thing.
In Contention‘s Kris Tapley, filing from his Los Angeles home, has been keeping better tabs on what’s been happening overall than myself. Here’s his summary about reactions to Let Me In and to Clint Eastwood‘s Hereafter, which, according to Tapley’s understanding, landed “with a thud.” Here’s another about responses to 127 Hours, Passion Play, Made in Dagenham and The Way.
