Today on Vulture Recommends: Five Movies You’ll Need to See to Appreciate the Big Fall Films


Just in case you missed out on the 101 level, Vulture editor Patti Greco is here with a remedial course in five movies you need to see to prep yourself for some big fall releases. For instance, did you ditch Marie Antoinette in theaters? You'll need to make it up before you see Lars von Trier's Melancholia, in which Dunst makes her return to leading-lady status. And check out John Huston's Freud: The Secret Passion: Necessary viewing if you could use a little brush-up on the German theories of mind before seeing David Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method, about the original egotist's relationship with Carl Jung. Incomplete work will not be accepted.
