Top-5 movies of the week - 12.08 - 18.08

1."The Help"
Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon by novelist Kathryn Stockett, “The Help” stars Emma Stone (“Easy A”) as Skeeter, Academy Award-nominated Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny - three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed - even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times. Directed and written by Tate Taylor, “The Help” is deeply moving, filled with poignancy, humor and hope. It is a timeless and universal story about the ability to create change.

2."30 Minutes or Less"
In the action-comedy 30 Minutes or Less, Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is a small town pizza delivery guy whose mundane life collides with the big plans of two wanna-be criminal masterminds (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson). The volatile duo kidnaps Nick and forces him to rob a bank. With mere hours to pull off the impossible task, Nick enlists the help of his ex-best friend, Chet (Aziz Ansari). As the clock ticks, the two must deal with the police, hired assassins, flamethrowers, and their own tumultuous relationship.(Official website)

3."Final Destination 5"
Ok, they think it's still a horror or at least thriller, but it looks more like an absurd comedy, where every death is incredibly stupid. Synopsis: "In "Final Destination 5," Death is just as omnipresent as ever, first revealing its menacing reality to a group of coworkers headed for a corporate retreat. During the bus ride, Sam (Nicholas D'Agosto) has a premonition in which he and most of his friends, as well as numerous others, die in a horrific bridge collapse. When his vision ends, events begin to mirror what he had seen, and he frantically ushers as many of his colleagues—including his friend, Peter (Miles Fisher), and girlfriend, Molly (Emma Bell)—away from the disaster before Death can claim them."(Official website)

4."Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow" (2010)
As I admire architecture and art, I just couldn't miss this documentary. OVER YOUR CITIES GRASS WILL GROW bears witness to German artist Anselm Kiefer’s alchemical creative processes and renders as a film journey the personal universe he has built at his hill studio estate in the South of France. In 1993 Kiefer left Buchen, Germany for La Ribaute, a derelict silk factory near Barjac. From 2000 he began constructing a series of elaborate installations there. Like a strange, sprawling village, La Ribaute extends over 35 hectares and is composed of old industrial buildings and working studios that link to a network of underground tunnels dug out by Kiefer, which run underneath pavilions built to house paintings and installations.(Official website)

5."Senna" (2010)
Spanning his years as a Formula One racing driver from 1984 to his untimely death a decade later, Senna explores the life and work of the triple world champion, his physical and spiritual achievements on the track, his quest for perfection and the mythical status he has since attained.(Official website)
