Bodies, Rest & Motion Review


Good
The early '90s were a bonanza for indie filmmakers. Digital video hadn't hit the scene yet, so producers had to raise a lot of money to buy film and equipment, and they often got access to indie-friendly celebs to help them with the picture. Bodies, Rest & Motion is a high-end indie archetype, and it's populated by nothing but stars. The story is also proto-'90s-indie: Four aimless slackers, each with a spurious agenda, couple, de-couple, and go nuts at random. The driving force, if you can call it that, is Tim Roth's sudden urge to leave Arizona for Butte, Montana ("The city of the future!"), which culminates in his girlfriend (Bridget Fonda) sleeping with the guy (Eric Stoltz) who comes to paint their house. Because in 1993, that's just what you did. It's overall well-acted but often too stupid to bear.

Bed Of Roses Review


Weak
Stalker guy delivers flowers to girl he spies late one night. No, it's a romantic comedy! Short on comedy, but still a romance, I suppose. Bed of Roses, starring the badly mismatched Christian Slater and Mary Stuart Masterson, tries so hard to be that Very Special Date Movie but fails all around. The dramatic moments are scary, the characters are unbelievable, their "problems" are pathetic. Only the soundtrack makes much of an impact.
