Three movies to watch (maybe) this weekend?

I saw the first two on the plane back from Burkina last month. I guess I can give them reasonably positive recommendations since I didn’t turn them off (but I was on a 10 hour flight): Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep and Steven Soderbergh’s Side Effects (pretty standard TV movie, actually).  I have very vivid memories of and would recommend over these films Soderbergh’s biopic Che, which had all the flaws attributed to it (too boring, too crafty in “overlooking” a lot of the bad stuff, too weird with the inexplicable New York scenes.  And Che delivers some decent hisotory and piques more interest in history (so does Redford’s film, in a good way).
