my week at the movies: ‘The White Ribbon’

I’ve got precisely one screening this week, which is actually one more than I was expecting — major holiday weeks are dead zones, and I’ve already seen just about everything opening. But the crazy scheduling earlier in the month meant I had to put off till today a screening of The White Ribbon (now playing in the U.K.; opens in the U.S. on December 30), from German filmmaker Michael Haneke, who also gave us Funny Games and Caché. I’ll write a review soon, but in the meantime, here’s what I just tweeted:

MaryAnn Johanson must be a simple bourgeois American, because she can’t see Michael Haneke’s THE WHITE RIBBON as anything other than pointless and cynical

I’ve still got a pile of awards screeners of movies I haven’t yet seen, so perhaps I can get to a few of those this week amidst all the holiday prep…
