Continuing my movie reviews in 140 characters or fewer:
- Restrepo (2010)
Harrowing documentary following a platoon of US soldiers deployed in Afghanistan’s Korengal Valley. Disturbing yet very touching.
- 127 Hours (2010)
Boyle sometimes goes a little over board with his style choices, but beneath all that lies a great performance by Franco. Good score, too.
- Alice in Wonderland (2010)
The story and the performances unfortunately drown in a design overflow that wears off its novelty way too soon.
- Blue Valentine (2010)
Chronicling the sweet beginning and bitter ending of a relationship with stunning, sometimes uncomfortable performances by Williams and Gosling.
- True Grit (2010)
Hailee Steinfeld dominates the film and it’s a joy to watch her act on one level with greats Bridges, Damon and Brolin. Beautifully shot.
