Before we begin, here’s an overview of what I watched in September. Now, here are this week’s articles.

Many reviews have been published on Rian Johnson’s Looper. Ryan McNeil does a particularly fine job.

Bob Turnbull has been providing some fun, well-written coverage of TIFF.

While The A.V. Club certainly does need any more recognition than it already receives, this recent article discussing the trendsetting, influential comedy/drama Louie is particularly inspired.

Colin reviews David Fincher’s The Game, on Criterion.

It doesn’t seem like Robot & Frank will be playing in a theater near me anytime soon. But Blake’s positive review gives me hope that someday I’ll be able to get around to it.

Roger Ebert gave Richard Gere’s latest film Arbitrage four stars. My interest continues to sustain after reading Aaron’s review of the film.

Oscar seasons is coming. For some, it has already begun: the 85th foreign film submissions.

Graffiti with Punctuation, a well-made and written Australian based website, hires Andy Buckle.

Nostra talks about and views all things Ryan Gosling.

Classic Hitchcock, so many say. Eric reviews Notorious.

    Thanks for the link love. I am surprised by that review by Roger Ebert. Wasn’t planning on watching it as I saw some negative reviews, but might have to give it a chance.

    Thanks for the mention Sam. Have you gotten a chance to see The Game on Criterion?

    I walked into Arbitrage with low expectations, and walked out thoroughly impressed! Glad you enjoyed my review, Duke.

    Hey, cool – I made the list! Thanks Sam…

    I might actually finish my coverage tonight…B-) Then it’s on to an October filled with horror…
