August movies

Well, I only made it to eight films in August. That's a woeful total! My ratio of good to bad was great though as five of the eight films I really liked including two films that will make my year end "best of" lists--the documentary Man On Wire and the edge of your seat French thriller Tell No One. I watched Tell No One yesterday afternoon and that was riveting and I'm betting it will be remade (and probably ruined) by an American director very soon.
