* New this week: "Brotherhood of the Wolf" is the cinematic equivalent of fusion cuisine. It's not only that this French-language film was made by an internationally diverse production team, it's also that its very sensibility is an unapologetic melange, mixing elements of French, Asian and American cinema in ways that amuse and lead to indigestion. A cross-cultural hoot that no one should take too seriously, it's a film set in an imaginary 18th century, in which some people write with quill pens and others kick like Jackie Chan. It's based on a historic incident, a series of more than 100 brutal attacks by an unknown animal that understandably terrorized that region in the South of France.
