RELEASES! Trouble with the curve (2012); Chasing Mavericks (2012) | The Bigamist (1953)

November 20, 2012

After a horrible weekend without interesting releases the next is not looks like better. However, the Ang Lee’s comeback, Life of Pi, is near and I am sure that this will be one of the best American films of the year. At any rate, if we want to watch a release we could chose between these two films with similar theme: sports. Enjoy this!

Trouble with the curve (2012) by Robert Lorenz

The Robert Lorenz’s debut is been released in our country starring Clint Eastwood, indeed, he was his assistant director in the beautiful The Bridges of Madison County (1995)or in the awarded Mystic River (2003). This is a nice story about improvement and sportsmanship. It looks like a film friendly.

Chasing Mavericks (2012) by Curtis Hanson

Despite the sad Hanson’s trajectory, this filmmaker is the director of one of the masterpieces at 90s: L.A. Confidential. An excellent movie from which there is no trace in his later films. What a pity. If the previous movie is about baseball, this is about surfing so it is not only appropriate to the season in which hits theaters. Anyway, seems very entertaining.

The Bigamist (1953) by Ida Lupino

We will always have… the classics! And we must remember that Ida Lupino is been honored in Filmoteca. Ida Lupino’s case is not very common in Hollywood  where directors mostly male in the Golden Age. The Bigamist is a classic drama with Ida Lupino as director and actress, at the same time and with a curious gossip: the story was written by Collier Young, recently divorced from Lupino, only to remarry her co-star – Joan Fontaine!
