Our favorite release this week is the latest from David Fincher, an adaptation of the bestselling thriller GONE GIRL (@ BLU SALE). Ben Affleck plays a struggling writer who's accused of murdering his rich, glamourous wife (Rosamund Pike) when she suddenly goes missing on their anniversary. Fincher is one of cinema's great misanthropes, and this is a tawdry mystery that doubles as a treatise on relationships. Kind of like Fincher's "Taming of the Shrew".

 

Our other favorite is from the Heroes at the Criterion Collection, Rainer Werner Fassbinder's THE BITTER TEARS OF PETRA VON KANT (@ BLU SALE). One of the prolific Fassbinder's best films, it's also a queer expressionist masterpiece without a single male character.

 

And don't forget the new biopic of one of Seattle's favorite sons, JIMI: ALL IS BY MY SIDE (@ BLU SALE), from the writer of 12 YEARS A SLAVE.

FINDING FELA (@ BLU SALE) is a new documentary about music pioneer Fela Kuti. Herzog and Kinski try to build an opera house in the Amazon in FITZCARRALDO (@ BLU SALE).

Viggo Mortensen in a Patricia Highsmith spy thriller in THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY (BLU). Jason Reitman's latest drama MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN.
