This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Aug. 9-11, 2013)

Because of embargoes (those happy little restrictions on when critics can post reviews, good or bad), a lot of our critics aren’t able to share links with you until release day. Here are some last-minute reviews for this weekend’s upcoming films. We’ve kept in all the reviews posted yesterday as well so you can have more help in deciding what to see (if you haven’t already).

Our critics have been hard at work reviewing the latest films. Here is a look at what’s coming out this weekend (in select cities, check your local listings) and what else may be in theaters right now.

2013 Films Not Yet In Theaters

The Congress

Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz

  • Excerpt: The Congress might be a little more ambiguous than most audiences will want or expect, but it’s ultimately a thought-provoking journey about personal identity: the image of ourselves that we present to the world, and the one we discover inside our own minds.

Facing Fear

David Bax @ Battleship Pretension

  • Excerpt: Cohen not only lucked into a most fascinating human interest story. He has used it to convince all of us that, human and fallible though we may be, we are capable of facing the nearly impossible decision and of doing the right thing.

The Last Elvis (El último Elvis)

Marcio Sallem @ Em Cartaz [Portuguese]

Mere Dad Ki Maruti

[New Today] Kathy Gibson @ Access Bollywood
