Another movie we’ve raved about recently, Black Dynamite is blackspoitation with a post-modern twist. Looking for all the world like the type of film Grindhouse wanted to be (but never quite was), this could make us forget the Shaft remake.
See it because: Michael Jai White’s star turn makes it all come together.
Mary And Max
How to describe this one? Well, let’s start with a rough plot – Mary (voiced by Toni Colette) is a lonely eight-year-old girl living in the suburbs of Sydney who has an unusual pen pal: 44-year-old, severely obese Max (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who lives in New York.
Spanning 20 years of their friendship, Mary And Max promises everything from religious issues, agoraphobia, taxidermy and dogs having sex. Oh, and did we mention it was Claymation?
See it because: It’s the older, weirder take on Wallace And Gromit’s turf.
