This week, the sad news from Colorado has us discussing the Dark Knight Rises again, and the effect that real life tragedies have on a film’s perception in the public. We connect that with our review of the new comedy The Watch, which was in the news months ago due to a title change because of a similarity to the Trayvon Martin shooting earlier this year. We continue the discussion of movies that have gone through changes because of connections to real life tragedies and some that confront these realities head on. Lastly, we discuss a strange film we caught last weekend, Possession, which is worth tracking down, and recommend you check out Take This Waltz, which is in theaters now. Lastly, we dig in to the Film Center’s latest series, Top Down, which starts tonight and runs through August.
