In this week’s Village Voice film section, we see Joel Kinnaman (best known as street-wise Detective Stephen Holder the U.S. version of homicide procedural The Killing) twice: He gets the title role in the RoboCop redux and plays a “Gatsby-esque” semi-gangster in Easy Money: Hard to Kill. We also have a review of The New Black, a doc about gay marriage from an African-American perspective, and an interview with its director, Yoruba Richen.
There’s also the usual slate of Valentine’s Day fare, some of which is surprisingly moving and might be just what you’re looking for. Our critics liked best this week: Adult World (Emma Roberts and John Cusack) and Jimmy P: Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian (Benicio Del Toro as an alcoholic, shell-shocked WWII veteran prone to debilitating headaches and sight loss).
