Best Released Movies Of October

Snowpiercer (November 22nd) — Chris Evans turns in an amazing performance as Curtis, the leader of a band of merry dystopian future revolutionaries. The Captain America movies only give you a hint of what a genuinely good actor he is—and now, between Snowpiercer and Sunshine, he’s been in two of the best sci-fi movies from the past ten years. And let’s not even talk about Iceman, where he manages to hold his own—even outperform, in some scenes—scenery-chewing dynamo Michael Shannon, for Chrissakes. And the wizard behind the curtain is Bong Joon-Ho, who directed the excellent Mother and The Host. The man is good.

The One I Love (2014) (November 29th) — The One I Love stars Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss. They play a married couple, but their marriage is troubled. They seek the assistance of a marriage counselor, played by Ted Danson, who recommends a weekend retreat in a cottage where he frequently sends couples. It has very good results. That is all I can tell you about the plot of The One I Love, because all the ensuing revelations in the film should be experienced rather than described. I will only say that it’s a film about identity, and about who we are, and how others perceive us, and how we perceive ourselves, and all the gaps between perceptions and realities.

Best Released TV Season of October

Doc Marten (November 15th) — It’s really the ninth season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, but that show needs no boost from us. Meanwhile, Doc Marten is the ultimate old woman’s Sunday evening programme. Martin Ellingham (Martin Clunes) is a famous surgeon who develops a crippling fear of blood during surgery one day. Unable to maintain his high-level position, he takes a job as General Practitioner in Port Wenn, the tiny Cornwall town where he spent happy summers with his Aunt as a child. Unfortunately, Doc’s parents were rigid and horrible, and he has something akin to Asperger’s syndrome — his lack of bedside manner or appreciation for the rhythms and culture of small-town life causes all sorts of hi-jinks, misunderstandings and drama.
