Opening this week...
DEAD SNOW, written by Stig Frode Henriksen and Tommy Wirkola, dir. by Tommy Wirkola
Premise: A ski vacation turns horrific for a group of medical students, as they find themselves confronted by an unimaginable menace: Nazi zombies.
Playing: IFC Center
Zombies. Zombies, I say! Nazi Zombies!
$9.99, written by Etgar Keret, dir. by Tatia Rosenthal
Premise: A stop-motion animated story about people living in a Syndey apartment complex looking for meaning in their lives.
Playing: Landmark Sunshine
WHATEVER WORKS, written and directed by Woody Allen
Premise: An eccentric older man encounters a Southern belle and promptly falls in love. But how will the couple, her family, and his New York City friends mix?
Playing: All over.
This was made from a shelved script Woody wrote in the 1970s, and from the early reviews it sounds like it was better off hidden away. But, it's Woody Allen, so I'll see it eventually. The logline, though... old man, young girl. And this was written before Soon-Yi?
