John Hawkes can do no wrong in my eyes. He put in a couple of fantastically sinister performances last year in Winter’s Bone and Martha Marcy. This year looks like he is going to blow up.
First up is this indie drama, Arcadia
After that is The Sessions, where his performance is already generating some Oscar buzz
Really interesting read for a lazy Sunday. Story about a girl who goes in search of the buried money from the film Fargo. But actually that’s not the real story.

Taken from The Band’s last gig, filmed by Scorsese in San Fran. As the only Southerner in the band you can really see how much the song means to Helm.
Have a bit of a soft spot for time travel science-fiction. Im expecting this to be one of the best films of 2012. Loved Rian Johnson’s previous collaboration with JGL in Brick.
Director Paul Feig walks us through each episode of the classic TV show Freaks and Geeks.

If you like the The Wire and have an interest in cinematography, then you should watch this.
