($39.95 Blu-ray, $29.95 DVD, The Criterion Collection)
Revisit Lena Dunham’s pre-Girls breakthrough, as she plays Aura, a flaky, self-entitled college graduate who moves back in with her artist mom and insufferable younger sister.
Criterion discs are always 100% on point.
I wouldn’t say that the Drive disc was one of the best this year – it was a bit too light on the bonus features (I heard Criterion’s going to get their hands on it at a later date, but that just might be a rumor), but goddamn if it wasn’t my favorite movie of last year.
Weekend was the best of the lot, for me (I don’t want a sequel, though, as the ending was perfect and one of the reasons it was both so poignant and also lingered forever in the memory. No, PLEASE, no sequel).
We Were Here was the most moving and inspirational.
The Avengers was the most entertaining, by far.
Drive I adored on first viewing, then I watched it another four times in the next two weeks and eventually couldn’t shake the suspicion that beyond looking great and having a beautiful kind of melancholy throughout, it was pretty empty and really amounted to nothing much at all, sadly.
