My Week in Film: March 18 to March 24

Here is what I watched this week.

In a Better World (dir. Susanne Bier, 2010)

This was the second time I’ve watched In a Better World since October. It is a great drama that stays with you long after watching it.

The Subject Was Roses (dir. Ulu Grosbard, 1968)

Fantastic performances from Jack Albertson, Patricia Neal, and Martin Sheen make this family drama worth seeing. You will also be amused by seeing Sheen in only his second screen role.
Casablanca (dir. Michael Curtiz, 1942)

My friends and I went to the 70th Anniversary screening of Casablanca on Wednesday night. Even though I’ve seen this movie a countless number of times and we were in the very front row, it didn’t matter. I love Casablanca and any opportunity to see it with an audience on the big screen is fantastic.

Drive (dir. Nicolas Winding Refn, 2011)

I was less enthralled by Drive this time around. Yet I still love certain sequences, especially the opening.

The Hunger Games (dir. Gary Ross, 2012)

The Hunger Games is a little rough in some places but I was pleasantly surprised by this adaptation of the book series. [Related post: 10 Observations About The Hunger Games]

  1. Hello there, just stumbled upon your blog…

    I’m jealous of you for seeing Casablanca on the big screen – living in a small town, I never have the opportunity to re-watch classics in cinema.
