I did not get a chance to see Take the Lead or Friends with Money, either because of scheduling conflicts or because of the fact that life's too short.
Otherwise, we have Caveh Zahedi's I Am a Sex Addict, opening exclusively in San Francisco, the disappointing new film by the brothers Dardenne, L'Enfant, which won last year's Palme d'Or, and finally the latest in a 12 year-series of Tarantino knockoffs, Lucky Number Slevin, which only makes Brick look that much better.
Additionally, I had a very good sit-down with Brick star Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
In new DVDs, the high point is probably Anchor Bay's re-release of the British gangster classic The Long Good Friday, even though the Criterion version is still in print. Otherwise we have: Action: The Complete Series, from Sony; Jiri Menzel's Capricious Summer, from Facets; Marc Forster's crap thriller Stay (what's up with Ewan McGregor's pants?); and the director's cut of Peter Bogdanovich's The Thing Called Love, from Paramount.
