Angela Review


Bad
A 10-year-old Christian Scientist girl tries to convince her 6-year-old sister that Satan is watching them all the time. As hopelessly artsy as it sounds, this is just plain morose, self-indulgent, and pointless filmmaking.

Reissued on DVD to take advantage of writer/director Rebecca Miller's new cachet courtesy of Personal Velocity, this inauspicious debt longs to be Heavenly Creatures -- or less explicably, Like Water for Chocolate, is the DVD case heralds. Too bad it's a third-rate indie, well photographed but ultimately not worth watching for either its precocious stars or its ham-fisted stars.

I Shot Andy Warhol Review


OK
Perverse (yet true!) biopic of Valerie Solanas (Taylor), a homeless lesbian prostitute feminist militant manhater New Yorker who gave Andy Warhol a copy of her play and then shot him when he wouldn't give it back.

Jaded Review


Bad
One of the most atrocious "thrillers" in recent memory, Jaded stars a buxom Carla Gugino as the victim of a brutal rape -- committed by two women!!! Ill-conceived from the very beginning (from casting Aida Turturro as a "tough" detective and Christopher McDonald as a wacky bar owner), the film actually tries to make its central message the issue that legal "rape" can't occur between two women -- it's "sodomy" instead. A movie about semantics? Never mind the cheesecake, I'm gonna pass on this one. Makes the similar (and bad) Body Shots look like a masterpiece.

Water Drops On Burning Rocks Review


Very Good
Four people are in a room dancing, Charlie's Angels style, fingers pointed like shooting guns and booties shaking. Heads bob up and down in time with the pop and fizz funk of the German record playing in the background.

Styled like a music video, we cut back and forth between all four of them swinging in sync with the rhythm and performing their individual motions with campy grandeur. After three or four minutes of this highly amusing, sexually charged romp and stomp in the living room, the middle aged businessman (obviously the leader of the group) abruptly turns off the record. "All right, that's enough. Everybody to the bedroom!" The women rush offscreen, giggling and squealing.

Fast Food, Fast Women Review


Weak
My brother describes Anna Levine as "Skeletor," and damn if that isn't pretty near the truth. And Levine's not just scary to look at, she's a poor actress and a bad dancer. The fact that Amos Kollek's script is stilted and his direction is iffy makes matters worse, but unfortunately Fast Food, Fast Women is just a vain attempt at making a movie about the perils of romance in the modern age. It of course succeeds at exposing none of them.
