This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Sep. 21-23, 2012)

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.

2012 Films Not Yet In Theaters

L’ Affaire Dumont

Jean-François Vandeuren @ Panorama-cinema.com [French]

Aqui y Alla

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ SpiritualityandPractice.com

  • Excerpt: A spiritual drama that puts two faces on Mexican poverty and then makes it possible for us to see these characters as our brother and sister rather than as strangers.

Artifact

Kenneth R. Morefield @ 1More Film Blog

  • Excerpt: Given the target audience’s love for Jared Leto and Thirty Seconds to Mars, the built in animosity towards record (or any) executives, and the universal love of David versus Goliath stories, Artifact ought to have been a slam dunk.

Doctored

Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ SpiritualityandPractice.com

  • Excerpt: A hard-hitting attack on the medical establishment and the pharmaceutical industry’s continuing attacks on alternative therapies.

Greetings from Tim Buckley

[New Today]
Stephen Saito @ The Moveable Fest

  • Excerpt: A surprisingly moving lead performance from Penn Badgley and low-key storytelling from director Dan Algrant make this snapshot from the tragically short lives of singer/songwriters Tim and Jeff Buckley a sound success.

Just 45 Minutes from Broadway

[New Today]
Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews

  • Excerpt: If you want a fly-on-the-wall view into the private lives of theatre royalty, this is the movie for you.

Passion

[New Today]
Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder

The Sleeping Voice

Samuel Castro @ Ochoymedio.info [Spanish]

  • Excerpt: La voz dormida se concentra, con sensibilidad, en las historias de las mujeres que sufrieron la época posterior a la Guerra Civil Española

Thanks For Sharing

[New Today]
Kenneth R. Morefield @ 1More Film Blog

  • Excerpt: Addiction, however unpleasant it might be, is a small price to pay for the acquisition of the types of steadfast, loyal, and lifelong friends one acquires in support groups.

To The Wonder

[New Today]
Alan Bacchus @ Daily Film Dose

  • Excerpt: With almost no dialogue, a wisp of a story and a vigorous repetition of images and sound Terrence Malick has entered full-on self-indulgent mode in this relative quickie from the revered enigmatic director. However beautiful and elegant the imagery is, given the issues noted above we can feel the director’s hand at work creating a greater disconnect between style and substance than in any of his previous films.

2011 Films

Margaret

Norm Schrager @ Meet In the Lobby

  • Excerpt: Three hours is awfully ambitious for a talky drama, but necessary for achieving the character depth Lonergan shoots for.
