Saturday Night Movie Recommendations with Abe

Welcome to a weekly feature here at Movies With Abe. I'm going to be providing a handy guide to a few choice movies currently playing in NYC as well as several films newly released on DVD. I’ll also aim to comment on those films I have not yet had the chance to see, and I invite you to add in your thoughts on any films I haven’t seen in the comments below. Understandably, some weeks will have considerably fewer releases to address than others.

Now Playing in NYC

The only notable film out this week is Dark Shadows, which I’m not rushing to see but could see being decent.

New to DVD

Nothing to report this week!

Now on Netflix Instant Streaming

After a slew of releases last week, there’s just one that I have to comment on this week. Refer to previous editions of Saturday Night Movie Recommendations with Abe for more options.

Ajami (recommended): This 2009 nominee for Best Foreign Film is Israel’s least impressive entry from the past couple of years, but it’s still a strong if somewhat jumbled portrayal of multicultural Jaffa, featuring standout performances from non-professionals actors.
