Movie Recommendation of the Week (Again): Metroland

A while back I wrote an article on some of the best acting performances by Christian Bale.   Among them was his performance in this week’s movie recommendation:  Metroland.  I actually recommended this back in September but I just saw it again so I thought I’d remind everyone.

Here’s what I wrote last time:

First of all I just want to mention how British this movie is. I don’t know how else to describe it really. But honestly it’s a great movie for all you young married dudes out there who feel your life is kind of stagnant.

It’s the story of Chris (Bale) who is a young suburbanite questioning his current life. The sudden reappearance of his best friend Toni, after ten years absence, causes Chris to remember his past, to question some of his lifestyle decisions and to re-evaluate his life and marriage to Marion.

Plus for some reason Christian Bale is naked in this movie? I certainly didn’t see that one coming. Anyway, it’s a cool flick that kind of makes you think a lot. No I’m not saying to go out there and cheat on your wife and make radical changes. But I will say it’s one of those movies that makes you say “what if?”

You should check it out.  I just wanted to also add that I’m starting to get psyched to see Dark Knight Rises.  Who else is starting to get jitters?
