Cave of Forgotten Dreams
The prolific and occasionally profound Werner Herzog explores the Chauvet Caves in southern France, where 32,000-year-old paintings of galloping horses and woolly mammoths were discovered just a decade or so ago, revealing much about humankind and the nature of art and all sorts of things to wax Herzogian about. A hugely fascinating doc, even if the 3-D cameras have been rendered 2-D for its Philadelphia-area run.
The Double Hour A sublimely tricky head-spinner of a thriller, set in Turin, Italy, where a beautiful Slovenian working as a hotel maid meets up with a mysterious ex-cop. The two leads, Ksenia Rappoport and Filippo Timi, nabbed the big acting prizes at the Venice Film Festival, and deservedly so. A great neo-noir. No MPAA rating
