Seeking a Film for the Middle of the Year

Summer traditionally means blockbuster film season. While neither of the wide-release films I reviewed recently quite qualify for blockbuster status, these movies (the end-of-the-world rom-com Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and the self-discovery weepie People Like Us) should have you searching for better cinematic fare.

A Fresh Set of Reviews

From the self-absorption of a romantically-obsessed 29-year old woman to the post-fame life of '70s singer Paul Williams to the world-historical events of the Arab Spring, the films in my latest set of reviews cover a wide range of territory. They also - per the norm - vary rather considerably in quality, from the pretty good to the not so very hot at all.

Tahrir: Liberation Square (The L Magazine)
Lola Versus (Slant)
Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding (Slant)
Paul Williams Still Alive (Slant)
The Kite (Slant)
