When Fast Five is in my top ten faves of 2011 then it’s obviously been a rough year at the movies. Summer is quickly winding down, which means that awards season is ramping up and thus there are a lot of promising films on the fall release slate. Here are the ten films that I’m most looking forward to…
1. The Skin I Live In (10/14) The new film from Pedro Almodovar stars Antonio Banderas as a plastic surgeon who creates an indestructible synthetic skin. It’s being touted as a horror film, I’m excited.
7. The Artist (11/23) By now you’ve probably read about this silent Cannes favorite from the director/star team of the OSS 117 films (the first of which is brilliant, the second hit-or-miss). Expect lots of Oscar buzz that doesn’t pan out.
Did I leave out anything of note? Let me know in the comments!
