Great Expectations

I can see the whole world from here ...In this week’s MSN DVD column, I take a look at the latest films from Mike Leigh and the Coen brothers, and finds them to be considerably more than just “the latest films from Mike Leigh and the Coen brothers”.

Not that the Coens have been slouching or anything of late, but they do have a reputation for a certain sort of movie, which “True Grit” absolutely is — and yet, somehow, isn’t. And for those of us who think Leigh has been slouching of late, “Another Year” is the sort of movie I was hoping he still had in him.

You know what I mean, right? I dunno, I’m spending about 24 hours immersed in the world of Terrence Malick, so I’m feeling all back-to-front today.
