First up, Woody Allen’s “Midnight In Paris” a return to form for the director, lighthearted, had me smiling and laughing the entire time. And if you’re not already in love with Paris, you will be by this film’s end. The below trailer does a great job of setting it up without ruining the surprise. Beware, Owen Wilson is quite the revelation in this film:
Next, Terrence Malick’s “The Tree of Life” – which I have not seen, but am sold on entirely by the craftsmanship and artistry of this trailer. I personally have heard stories of the immensely moving experience this film can muster, and I, for one, cannot wait to experience it myself.
Next, Lars Von Trier’s “Melancholia” – being described as a “beautiful movie about the end of the world” – this filmmakers previous work “Antichrist” was so startling that I am greatly intrigued by his newest project:
Julia Leigh’s “Sleeping Beauty” starring Emily Browning – I know almost nothing about this movie except it appears an interesting take on an old classic, stripped of its sugar sweet, childish Disney upbringing and brought back to the dark roots of the story’s origin
