So, caught Kinsey on Sunday night at the Landmark. Pretty good, enjoyable movie. Yes, it falls into the archetype of 'misunderstood genius struggling against society.' However, it's saved from just that by good performances an a stellar supporting cast (some woefully underused.) I'd love to see nominations for both Laura Linney and John Lithgow. And oh, the theme of science vs. the religious right sure does ring true these days too.

Trailers:
* Bad Education - Well, it's Pedro "NC-17" Almodovar and altar boys, so you kind of know what you're getting into. Will wait for reviews.
* The Assassination of Richard Nixon - Mmmmaybe. I'm no Sean Penn fan, But I *am* a Don Cheadle fan.
* Hotel Rwanda - Always hard to psyche myself up for a movie about a real-life tragedy, but the trailer looked pretty good.
* Beyond the Sea - Kevin Spacey as Bobby Darin, and he does his own singing. That gets me to the table.
* A Very Long Engagement - Not 'Amelie 2,' sadly. But I'm a fan of both Jeunet and WW1, so I'm there.
