Headhunters

Oslo can you go? To the depths of man’s darkest and deadliest desires, per this fun foreign crime thriller.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Compared to the continent of Europe, the rate of death by guns in America is six times higher. You wouldn’t know it based on the current wave of crime films from that half of the globe. Arguably kicked off by the worldwide success of Sweden’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, the movies generally are ballsier and bloodier and, therefore, better.

Naked Angels

This biker flick has no clothes.


Action

Rod Lott
For his productions, Roger Corman knew the market value of a great title. Naked Angels is one of them, but in the case, but it’s like putting icing on a pile of dog poop.

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.”

Animal Collective — Centipede HZ


Indie

Joshua Boydston
There really was no way for Animal Collective to match Merriweather Post Pavilion, widely considered the best album of 2009. It’s damn near impossible to bottle lightning twice, especially with the caustic and combustible ingredients the psych-rock band uses to build its ambitious opuses, in which indie electronics meet space rock.

For a Good Time, Call ...

For a movie about phone sex, 'For a Good Time, Call ...' is surprisingly all heart.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach
Bridesmaids was the shot across the bow, with HBO’s Girls the follow-up fusillade: Women can cuss, drink and drug with the best of ’em. In that spirit arrives For a Good Time, Call …, a comedy with the scenario of what happens when a pair of unlikely 20-somethings start a phone-sex service.

Goats

No kidding: David Duchovny's great in this.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Prep-school movies are the ultimate cinematic representations of White People Problems. Rich, entitled kids suffering because — in the case of Goats — they can’t score weed.
