Even though The Protector is technically a hold-over from last week, I've got seven new reviews for this Friday night, including ones for The Rock's football melodrama, a British wedding industry mockumentary, an upcoming Argentinean noir, and Bobcat Goldthwait's bestiality-related rom-com.
Yet the most interesting criticism-related news of my week was that, on Tuesday afternoon, I saw the film that will, in all likelihood, top my Worst of the Year list - a thoroughly incompetent, incoherent, and awful low-budget effort called They're Just My Friends. It's my first-ever ZERO-star review for Slant.
The Protector (Slant magazine)
As many of you have probably noticed, I've also been really busy posting blog reviews, of which the most recent are The Last King of Scotland, Shortbus, and the sterling Memories of Murder. All can be found below.
And keep an eye out for the beginning of my New York Film Festival coverage, coming next week.
