I was excited when Couples Retreat first popped on my radar a few months ago. I mean, coupling the Vaughn | Favreau | Billingsley team with Demiurge Jason Bateman seemed like a match made in mainstream comedy heaven, right? Nope. Michael Sheen has quietly become a top-notch, see-everything-he-does actor. I know more about the Bible than I do about soccer, but I'll queue up for The Damned United just to see Sheen. It's already being written: An Education will produce one of the next great stars and that star is Carey Mulligan.

Where the hell has Chris Rock been lately? Apparently, he's been making Good Hair, a documentary that explores the ornate, complex and socially-motivated hairstyles within the African-American community. Peter and Vandy feels about ten years too late: an indie love story set in New York City. Seems tired to me, but I'll show up for Jess Weixler and Jesse L. Martin. Given the recent death of master photographer Julius Shulman,
Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Shulman couldn't be a more timely look at an American original.
