LOCAL HERO (dir: Bill Forsyth, PG) - Bart says, "Folks come into the store all the time and ask me, 'What's a good movie?' It's a pretty dumbfounding question, because unless I know you and the kinds of movies you like, I won't have any clue as to how my idea of a good movie and your idea of a good movie might correspond. I've finally found a way out of this predicament. From now on, whenever anybody asks me what's a good movie, I will always answer, 'LOCAL HERO.' It's a gentle comedy about an American businessman who goes to a small coastal Scottish town to negotiate drilling rights for a big Texas oil magnate and ends up falling in love with the people there and their way of life. It's an absolutely perfect movie that literally every human being on the planet can enjoy. If you say you've seen it already and like it, then we have a basis for a discussion of what other movies you might like. If you say you've seen it and didn't like it, well then, you and I have nothing further to talk about."
ENTRE NOUS (dir: Diane Kurys, Not Rated) - Bart says, "It often gets placed on lists of 'lesbian movies,' but anyone going into it with those expectations will be disappointed. It's really just an ode to the power of female friendship, based on the lives of the director's parents immediately following WWII. Much of the film's appeal comes from the realistically drawn characters who are all flawed and make bad decisions, including the Jewish refugee played by house-favorite Isabelle Huppert, and Miou-Miou as the educated woman who opens her friend's eyes to what a jerk her husband is."
