Movie recommendations for this week

On DVD, go out and rent Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It is funnier and much more charming than it has any right to be. The four leads are all good. Billy Baldwin continues his offbeat, obscure career renaissance that he began with 2005's The Squid and the Whale (also highly recommended... my brother). And, oh yeah, there's full frontal male nudity, if you are into that.

In the theatres, go see the 2006 French film Tell No One. It was just released here for the first time and is a first rate suspense thriller. It is more American than many European films, but definitely feels European, although, strangely, it doesn't feel that French. Perhaps because the story is an adaptation of an American novel? There is a bit of a Hollywood cop-out near the end, but it is probably necessary in order to bring things to a suitable, and understandable, resolution. Anyway, it is well worth your $12.75. Oh yeah, and there is also full frontal male nudity, if you are into that.
