This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Jun. 7-9, 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 Assassins

Marcio Sallem @ Em Cartaz [Portuguese]

The Exhibitionists

Mike Everleth @ Underground Film Journal

  • Excerpt: When a film such as The Exhibitionists opens with a quote from Jean Baudrillard, one can be assured that what happens on-screen for the next eighty-eight minutes will attempt to mix high class with a trash sensibility.

Faroeste Caboclo

Marcio Sallem @ Em Cartaz [Portuguese]

Fatal

[New Today] Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood

Flamingos

[New Today] Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live

  • Excerpt: Alli draws interesting parallels between the criminal lifestyle and relationships, touching on some pretty deep subjects. The downside comes in detours portraying the thief’s drug addiction as a series of music videos.

Hey Bartender

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ SpiritualityandPractice.com

  • Excerpt: A playful and entertaining probe of the cocktail renaissance in our time.

The Punk Singer

[New Today] Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood

The Rambler

[New Today] Marina Antunes @ Quiet Earth

Stress Position

[New Today] Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live

  • Excerpt: The film isn’t very successful in blurring fiction and reality, but it works fairly well as fiction. The political allegory also functions on a meta level, showing an abusive auteur taking his personal vision too far.

Yesterday Never Ends

[New Today] Brent McKnight @ Giant Freakin’ Robot
