After watching several mediocre films Spring was just what I needed. Imaginative, well written, interesting characters and an interesting story. The sci-fi aspect works, the romance works and I loved the setting. Very cool film with a great ending. I really liked this one.

Much is made of Kristen Wiig when she does drama. In Welcome to Me she plays a woman who loves TV talk shows. When she wins millions in the lottery she buys the ability to make her own talk show. She holds the crew and network hostage with her checkbook. The approach to the treatment of mental illness is awkward and not always respectful. This film left me flat.

Lost River is a weird ride. Desperate for money, a single mother travels to a secret city and works in a freak show of bizarre proportions. The production value is high and performances are great, but this is such a strange film.
