What I’ve been watching: July films

Talk about travel broadening the mind! During my trip to NZ this month I’ve feel as though I’ve had my own mini film festival, with only one real duffer:

Blancanieves (2012, directed by Pablo Berger);

Monsieur Lazhar (2011, directed by Philippe Falardeau);

Zwei Leben (2012, directed by Georg Maas);

Hitchcock (2012, directed by Sacha Gervasi);

The Headless Woman (2008, directed by Lucrecia Martel);

Familia Rodante (2004, directed by Pablo Trapero);

Globe on Screen: Twelfth Night (2012, directed by Tim Carroll);

Before Sunrise (1995, directed by Richard Linklater);

Before Sunset (2004, directed by Richard Linklater);

After Life (1998, directed by Hirozaku Kore-Eda);

Twice Born (2012, directed by Sergio Castellitto and by a long way the duffer);

Before Midnight (2013, directed by Richard Linklater);

The Sapphires (2012, directed by Wayne Blair);

Promised Land (2012, directed by Gus Van Sant);

Winter of Discontent (2012, directed by Ibrahim El-Batout);

The Smallest Show On Earth (1957, directed by Basil Dearden)

Frances Ha (2012, directed by Noah Baumbach).
