This Week's Mercury Film Section
- THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN That sleeping lady is NOT IMPRESSED.
• THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN—The movie so nice they made it twice.
• TO ROME WITH LOVE—Woody Allen is still bumbling around Europe. He might be confused and disoriented. Please call his daughter if you see him.
• THE DO-DECA-PENTATHLON—Mumblecore and SportsCenter, together at last.
• GRAND ILLUSION—A fancy-pants restoration to celebrate the film's 75th anniversary. Jamie S. Rich also talks about all the other films it's influenced in this week's I'm Staying Home.
• SAVAGES—Remember when Oliver Stone occasionally made a good movie? Haha, jk. Most of us weren't even born back then! But hey, he's still making things. Terrible, terrible things.
There's more, as ever, in Film Shorts, including reviews of the insane-sounding The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye and the kinda boring-sounding El Velador: The Nightwatchman. Movie Times are here.
