Looking for good movie options this weekend?  Brian DePalma's Iraq film "Redacted" arrives at Market Street Cinema.  David Denby of The New Yorker writes, "“Redacted” is hell to sit through, but I think De Palma is bravely trying to imagine his way inside an atrocity, and that he’s onto something powerful with his multisided approach."  A.O. Scott of The New York Times somewhat agrees when he notes, "I am glad the movie was made, and I wish it were better."

"The Golden Compass" starring Nicole Kidman and  Daniel Craig also opens.  Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly opines, "Big, noisy, and fantastic yet curiously sodden, too, filled with talking animals, sparkly light showers, and vague hints of ''religious'' feeling that are never more than distant echoes, The Golden Compass is a snowbound mystical-whizbang kiddie ride that hovers somewhere between the loopy and the lugubrious."

I still haven't seen "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead."  It's tops on my list.  Enjoy.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
