If you had asked me in July how the 2006 summer movie season was shaping up, I would have launched into a vicious rant about the sad state of contemporary popcorn filmmaking. But that was then, and thanks to some recent quality releases, I have since come to appreciate this past movie season for what it was: a lukewarm period that saw a handful of premium titles, and even one masterpiece.
Note that I am talking about the summer's wide releases. Indeed, I didn't see very many of the season's more obscure offerings, but I have no doubt that such titles as "The Proposition," "A Prairie Home Companion," "The Road to Guantanamo" and "Half Nelson" will provide for some engaging viewing when they are released on DVD in the coming months.
