Memorial Day Weekend Link Roundup

As the Summer draws to its (unofficial) close, there seems to be little in the way of worthy cinematic offerings hitting theaters over the next couple of weeks. Of the three films I've reviewed lately for Slant Magazine, I can't in good conscience recommend any. Opening this weekend in New York is Takashi Miike's spaghetti western pastiche, Sukiyaki Western Django while Claude Miller's irrelevant Holocaust film A Secret and Robert Cary's intriguing but disappointing Save Me open the following week. New York moviegoers would be better advised to take in the new digital restoration of Carl Theodor Dreyer's Day of Wrath at the IFC Center or catch up with Azazel Jacobs' Momma's Man at the Angelika.
