* Beasts of the Southern Wild, a noble effort with great acting and beautiful cinematography, but overbearing music and a muddled script.
* The Dark Knight Rises, maybe the most anticipated movie of the year. But must what goes up also come down?

UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* Design for Living, a lithe comedy from Noël Coward, directed by Ernst Lubitisch. Love triangles at their most pointed!
* Le havre, a middling dramedy from Aki Kaurismäki
THIS WEEK IN BD/DVD REVIEWS...
* Treme: The Complete Second Season. HBO's most challenging show is a lot like life. And, hey, ain't life worth it?
Current Soundtrack: The Vaccines, "Teenage Icon;"
