EntreLobos (AmongWolves) tells the remarkable story of a poor country boy named Marcos, who at the age of 7 is handed over to his father's employer, a rich landowner, who in turn delivers him to a life of labor with a hermetic goatherd in an isolated valley. The old man, who lives in a cave, is unused to human company and at first seems not very interested in having a live-in apprentice. The boy, who was abused by his parents, is frightened and equally aloof initially. Despite this, the shepherd begins teaching Marcos how to herd the goats, as well as how to care for himself and how to survive in the wilderness by trapping and fishing.

Charlie Hunnam and Chris O'Dowd play two brothers, Frank and Bruce - one is a nice guy who's wife stood him up at the altar, the other is an asshole who used footage from said embarrassing wedding and uploaded it for millions to see. Frank is back from rehab, but he's still a jerk and manages to film Frank and his new love interest Lassie (Lizzy Caplan) while trying to have sex, which of course, also gets uploaded and goes viral. Hunnam is English, O'Down is Irish, and they're playing two American brothers. Caplan was cast as the slightly rebellious girl next door, you know the drill, the same character could be played by Zooey Deschanel or Alison Brie. Plenty of loopholes in the script and an abundance of cliched dialogues taken from your typical romantic comedy, and once it's over, it leaves you with a 'oh what the fuck, that's it?' feeling. At least you get to see Ron Pearlman as the ugliest transsexual ever. I was fortunate enough to have seen The Watch before this,which features Richard Ayoade, and even though this is better, the only thing I want now is more I.T. Crowd with Ayoade and O'Dowd, and not these slightly quirky, almost indie romantic comedies.

John H (au) wrote: SIMON OF THE DESERT is patched together from the fragments of a feature begun by Bunuel but cancelled mid-stream because of missing resources, and it shows. Even for a surrealist feature, it lacks coherence (yes, surrealist features have coherence... shut it) and is made up entirely of rough edges and unfinished ideas. But the Bunuelian dryness and wryness is still there, and the subtle lampooning of religious fanaticism is spot on. Yet it's not quite as damning a satire as, say, the secular DISCREET CHARM or EXTERMINATING ANGEL; its affection for Simon is real in spite of his delusion, and there's an odd sense of loss about him during the finale. Pier Paolo Pasolini once said that he was "an unbeliever with a profound nostalgia for belief". SIMON may reveal that to also be true of Bunuel... at least a little.
