A Week In Film #336: Burning out

The Hunting Party title screen
The Hunting Party
Silly and offensively simplistic ‘journalist saves the world’ nonsense, with American war reporter (Richard Gere) tracking down a Serbian war criminal (Ljubomir Kerekeš), ably assisted by sidekicks Terrence Howard and Jesse Eisenberg. Directed by Richard Shepard (The Matador).

Siberian Education title screen
Siberian Education
Sort of Once Upon A Time In The Soviet Union, only not as interesting as that makes it sound. An Italian production of a Russian novel, with international talent like Peter Stomare and John Malkovich wasted. Directed by Gabriele Salvatores, who nabbed an Oscar for Mediterraneo.
