Critter cinema

Animals arrive in this week's new movie releases, including Pandas and Tehran Taboo

Let's start with the big new release: for some reason, there's a rooster in the poster for Blockers, a movie about parents trying to preserve their daughters' virginity. What's that about? (Cue Beavis & Butthead chuckle.)


Blockers 1.0

At the other end of the spectrum (in more ways than one), there's Tehran Taboo, playing in exactly one theater locally. No animal in the poster, but there's a cat who embodies a pretty powerful theme.

Foxtrot has an animal in the title, but no actual foxes, I'm guessing.

Gemini has a sort of metaphorical animal — the lost puppy who follows you home and trips your motion-detecting security lights.

But Pandas? Animal in title, poster, and film. Trifecta. Alas, unreviewed.

Also reviewed: Finding Your Feet.

Also unreviewed: A Quiet Place (which seems to promise critters of the nasty variety), Ramen Heads, The Miracle Season.
