this week on 100 Films

2 new reviews were posted to 100 Films in a Year this week, and they were...

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009)
The original title translates as Men Who Hate Women, which is certainly very apt. The subject matter is grim and dark; horribly plausible, in fact. It’s unwaveringly depicted with some brutal, hard-to-watch scenes. They’re not exploitative though, as a lesser film merrily would be, and that makes them appropriate to the tale being told.

Synecdoche, New York (2008)
starts out like a relatively normal comedy/drama… but then weird touches begin to crop in. A house that’s on fire when a character buys it and continues to be on fire for the next several decades, for instance. No one in the film bats an eyelid. Then the really weird bit arrives... as Philip Seymour Hoffman’s theatre director begins to construct a life-size New York within a warehouse.

This week also sees a couple of other updates: firstly, the monthly summary for March -- in short: it's going well -- and secondly, I was nominated for a Stylish Blogger Award. Read about it (in the comments) on the about page. Plus, my review of The Girl Who Played With Fire will be available from midnight tonight.

More next Sunday.
