The stars have aligned for filmgoers this week. From recent memory, I can’t recall another week that has 5 cinema releases that could all be described as very good.

I should point out that I finally got a chance to upload my video from the Toronto Film Festival where I spoke with Alexander Payne and George Clooney. Check it out here...
