Dry Season

I haven't seen a theatrical release in a dog's age (two weeks) because I'm not interested in any of the current movies out there. During this blockbuster-release season, it seems fewer arthouse films are distributed. At my local artsy theater, even "The Break-Up" is playing along side "An Inconvenient Truth" and "I'm Your Man." The only films that I have been slightly interest in star Charlotte Rampling: "Lemming" and "Heading South." "Lemming," a French flick also starring Charlotte Gainsbourgh, who I adore, was in theaters for about three seconds, and I missed it. The storyline for "Heading South" sounds too much like "How Stella Got Her Groove Back," so I'm slightly hesitant. The only film coming out soon that I'm looking forward to is Woody Allen's "Scoop," and that won't be released until the 28th. Another week and a half of no movies!
