Happy friday

Some trailers today:

- Two for Hong Kong New Waver Patrick Tam's After This Our Exile, which has been winning awards all over Asia.

- US trailer for Hot Fuzz, the latest film from the Shaun of the Dead team of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg. Looks to be a sharp take on the buddy action/serial killer genre. Where else can you see a man drop kick an old lady?

- There's also the latest teaser for the new Danny Boyle film "Sunshine," starring Gillian Murphy, Michelle Yeoh, and Hiroyuki Sanada.

- A German producer has come out and attack German film critics for bashing his two latest films - "Perfume - The Story of a Murderer" and "Mein Fuehrer: The Truly Truest Truth about Adolf Hitler" - despite being box office successes. Report from Twitch is here.

- Two recommendations - the brilliant Children of Men, which has some of the greatest long takes since Paul Thomas Anderson's Magnolia, and the funky new album from Khalil Fong, which includes what is already one of my favorite songs for 2007 ("Foursome," a duet with the not-so-Mandarin-proficient Fiona Sit).
