Catch up with two movies from my 2006 Top 10 list.
The Death of Mr. Lazarescu is screening sporadically at the IFC Center through next week. (It's also available on DVD - for my take on the hierarchy of viewing formats, see the Lazarescu entry on my Top Ten list below.)
Peep the details at http://www.ifccenter.com/event?eventid=999865
Also screening soon is the magnificent Pedro Costa movie Colossal Youth, at Walter Reade on Friday, February 16 at 6:15 and Sunday, February 18 at 1:30. Prioritize this, as Costa's movies don't show up stateside too often.
Colossal Youth is part of the Film Comment Selects series, which offers its typical array of solid and varied fare from around the world. Kudos to Film Comment and Lincoln Center for giving some screen time to stuff that didn't make it to commercial screens last year.
