We're a little late this week, but we hope it's worth the wait, as Cal has been to the London Film Festival, bringing news of films by Christian Petzold, Andrei Zvyagintsev, Francois Ozon, and a doozy of a performance by Reese Witherspoon. The week's reviews consist of IRA thriller "'71," starring everyone's favourite young actor, Jack O'Connell, and scriptwriting comedy "The Rewrite," which was somewhat overshadowed by Marisa Tomei's jeans. Cal saw Susan Sarandon play Sheriff in religious serial killer drama "The Calling," which just about escaped the dreaded "F" grade, while we also had time to discuss Stephen Frears' BFI Fellowship, Lindsay Lohan's theatre stint, and Michelle Pfeiffer's history at the Oscars. Elsewhere, we argue about the main concerns of Billy Wilder's "Sunset Boulevard," pimp an underseen German exorcist drama, and chat about the eclectic cast of Judd Apatow's upcoming film, the title of which greatly amuses Pete.
