Before I tell you about January, let me remind you that My Week with Marilyn opens Friday, December 23. I know it's been all doom and gloom lately here at Ragtag (murderous cults & apocalypses, financial and worldly), but I'm hoping Marilyn will be a bit of Hollywood fun, as we'll see her onset at Laurence Olivier's The Prince And The Showgirl.
Here's Peter Bradshaw's 4-star review from the Guardian.
Now, here's what we're trying to lock down for January:
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy Based on John le Carré's 1974 spy novel (the first in the Karla Trilogy). It's been adapted for the screen before, but I'm sure this 2011 version will be excellent. Great story, great cast, and it's from the director who brought us one of the best vampire films in the last few years--Let the Right One In (Tomas Alfredson). A five-star Bradshaw review.
Carnage Roman Polanski's new film about two couples and their brawling children. This looks like fun.
A Dangerous Method From David Cronenberg. Michael Fassbender's Carl Jung against Viggo Mortensen's Sigmund Freud.
