This week’s highlights include four strong character films defined by great acting performances, including Noomi Rapace in the Swedish version of the complex psychological thriller THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO.

This Valentine’s week, celebrate with four films that all take a different, non-traditional view of love and romance in the modern age. From a story of prostitution gone awry to a dark tale of love in a fantasy world, we’ve got films more interesting than your typical V-Day fare. If you’re not into the whole Hallmark holiday thing at all, may we suggest Tommy Lee Jones in a modern western instead?

This week’s theme is… nymphomania! Ok, so only two of our five featured films focus on characters who go beyond simple promiscuity, but that’s 50% more than a normal week. In addition, we’ve got Daniel Day-Lewis, Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner and the story behind one of post-punk music’s biggest fallen icons. Unfortunately not all in the same film, but hey, you’ve got to pace yourself. We’ve got all week together.

Also on tap, a sexy (but literary!) romp through Paris, one of the best Stephen King film adaptations ever, and Alan Cumming and Jennifer Jason-Leigh at each other’s throats.

One of the most influential, successful stars in Hollywood is also — luckily for fans of innovative filmmaking — not afraid to take risks. Though he has starred in the kind of huge, slick hits that have established him as a dashing leading man, his tastes have always veered more political, more satirical. In THE PERFECT STORM — airing Sunday at 10P on Sundance Channel — Clooney is the captain of a Massachusetts fishing boat desperately holding onto a dying industry who goes out for one more big catch with a hurricane and two other massive weather events bearing down. But nothing could capsize this megastar’s compellingly diverse, endlessly entertaining body of work. It was hard to whittle it down, but here are five of our very favorite Clooney indie roles.
