Shame

'Shame' on Oscar for ignoring this dangerous drama.


Drama

Rod Lott
Our daily life is defined by rituals. For you, that may mean a morning cup of coffee or a quick jog before bed. For Brandon Sullivan, the New York City-based protagonist of Shame, it means masturbating at work.

Haywire

The spy who loved me ... and kicked my ass.


Action

Rod Lott
Can Steven Soderbergh do a martial arts-fueled action thriller? That was rhetorical in a bear-crap way; the guy can do anything. Best known for Traffic and the Ocean's Eleven franchise, he's a director par excellence, even when the story goes to snuff in his experimental larks, like casting porn star Sasha Grey as the lead in 2009’s no-budget drama The Girlfriend Experience.

Shot with his own gun


CFN

Gazette staff
To loosely paraphrase the sentiment of the National Rifle Association: Guns don’t kill penises; felons with lousy luck do. Just ask Tavares Donnell Colbert, an ex-con recently arrested for possession of a firearm — but not before he had done gone and shot himself in the genitals.

Piranha 3DD

Wetter be good to me.


Horror

Rod Lott
As the junky, jokey follow-up to 2010's Piranha 3D (a remake of the Roger Corman drive-in classic of 1978), Piranha 3DD takes place a year after the prehistoric killer fish laid waste to a popular lake during spring break.

The Crimson Petal and the White

Oh, Sugar, Sugar.


Television series

Rod Lott
Four of the finest hours of entertainment this year can be found in The Crimson Petal and the White, an enchanting, seductive BBC miniseries based on Michel Faber’s best-selling novel. Set in London of 1874, in a time of cholera, it is, as co-star Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) states in a bonus interview, “a love story almost entirely bereft of love.”

Klown

One tart and tasty Danish!


Comedy

Rod Lott
That The Hangover director Todd Phillips has plans to helm an Americanization of the Danish comedy Klown (or Klovn) comes as neither a surprise nor a shock. I'd only be surprised if the remake can get within arm's length of equaling it.

The Inbetweeners Movie

Where's Clark Griswold when you need him?


Comedy

Rod Lott
Spun off from the hit British TV series that recently was remade poorly for MTV, The Inbetweeners Movie follows the original show’s core quartet of socially awkward lads on vacation — er, sorry: “on holiday.”

Lips ‘lust’


CFN

Gazette staff
At this point, it’s almost more shocking when there’s not any nudity in a Flaming Lips music video. So the recently released video for “You Lust” — the sprawling, 13-minute centerpiece of the Oklahoma City band’s excellent new album, The Terror — is basically just par for the course.

The Monk

I vow that it’s a gem.


Thriller

Rod Lott
For several years, I’ve intended to read Matthew G. Lewis' 1796 novel, The Monk. I even bought a snazzy trade-paperback edition with an introduction from Stephen King. Never got around to cracking it open.

The Canyons

True to its title, the film is a void.


Drama

Rod Lott
Paul Schrader’s The Canyons opens and closes with a montage of abandoned movie theaters. For this film in particular, that choice strikes one as symbolic in several ways: not only as a comment on the state of the industry, but on the state of The Canyons itself. You’re unlikely to find many 2013 films this empty.
