Posted by · 8:42 am · December 2nd, 2009

This installment of New York Times critic A.O. Scott’s Critics’ Picks landed last week sometime, but I just now stumbled across an embed.  “Aguirre, the Wrath of God” has a firm place in my top 15 films of all time, so it goes without saying, I was interested.  I thought I’d pass along:

    Go to atthemoviestv.com. So far, though, they’re only up to 5. They’re revealing a pick each week.

    I saw that, RE: Wild Things, earlier in the week. All I could do is ask: Really?

    Me no likey. Herzog is sucks and “Aguirre” is not any better than the terrible and terribly pretentious “Cobra Verde”.
