Film Fan Fridays for Friday May 27, 2011

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday May 27, 2011!

In limited release this week we start off with two documentaries with L'Amour Fou centred on on fashion designer Yves Saint-Laurent and his ex-lover Pierre Berge and Bobby Fischer Against the World on the life of chess master bobby Fischer. We also have the end-of-world/survival horror The Collapsed, ensemble-cast friend comedy that also feels quite tragic Little White Lies / Les petits mouchoirs plus the Thursday May 26, 2011 release of The Invisible Eye / La mirada invisible.

In wide release this week we have starting things off early both releases of the week being Thursday May 26, 2011 and both are sequels: The Hangover Part II and Kung Fu Panda 2.

Be sure to check out my coverage of the World Wide Short Film Festival next week over at at Movie Moxie.

Have a great weekend!
