This week's premieres

Wrong Turn (Pach krvi) - Horror by Rob Schmidt. Did you miss the recent remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre? Well, you're in luck: Wrong Turn also has a backwoods American setting, screaming teenagers, and disfigured cannibals! And even if you did see The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, it doesn't matter. This one's set in West Virginia, not Texas, and its heroine is Eliza Dushku, not Jessica Biel.

21 Grams- Drama by Alejandro Gonzalez Inárritu. The English-language debut of Mexican director Inárritu, who made the fantastic, if rather unfocused, Amores perros. Much like that film, 21 Grams concerns itself with the way that seemingly disparate people can suddenly be thrust together by a terrible tragedy. Starring Sean Penn, Naomi Watts, and Benicio Del Toro.


The Dreamers (Snílci) - Drama by Bernardo Bertolucci. Though Bertolucci is responsible for some of film's most enduring works (The Conformist, Last Tango in Paris),

his latest, The Dreamers, could be seen as evidence that he has simply become a dirty old man. It may be set during the social upheaval of Paris in 1968, but its ultimate concern is the physical beauty of its frequently nude protagonists. And they certainly are beautiful. But this film is a love letter to cinema just as much as it is to them. So maybe it is empty. But who really cares?
