The Oscar Flicks Are Upon Us! Clooney! Leo! Marilyn! Schtupping!
My incisive new column takes you through the wealth of quality entries invading the cineplex while aiming for the gold:
George Clooney playing the kind of imperfect-but-lovable character he specializes in, and doing it with his customary charm and subtlety.
People singing and dancing without sound.
An unhinged doctor using sex-change surgery as revenge.
A mishandled girl who joins a sex-and-violence cult.
A blond screen legend who looks better in a dress than that tortured FBI chief.
And a sad, hollow man who bangs himself into oblivion, but has the time of his life doing so.
All in 3-D!
Please buy the mug on the way out.
