Haiku Movie Reviews II (the independents)

My friend Laurie and I have accidentally formed a movie-going club of two. We've been lucky and unlucky at the same time as there's quite a lot of good independents to see lately and not enough freelance work between the two of us. Hence: matinees. And Haiku Movie Reviews for you.

The White Ribbon directed by Michael Haneke

The town is rotten
with unfathomable crimes
The town is the world

Crazy Heart directed by Scott Cooper

Jeff Bridges drinks, plays,
sings, crashes, limps, yearns, fucks up,
goes country for real

An Education directed by Lone Scherfig

Jenny--smart, sixteen
falls for shiny surfaces
the dark underneath

Fish Tank directed by Andrea Arnold

Y'r fifteen and pissed
Mom's boyfriend is kind and hot
Is he? maybe not
