Sleeping Dogs Lie Review


OK
In rough, loose digital camerawork usually reserved for film school shorts, Melinda Page Hamilton (the nun from Desperate Housewives) stares lovingly, and curiously, at her dog as he rolls around on the floor. Then, without much warning, she proceeds to tie her hair back and perform oral sex on the dog. An act usually saved for the apogee of a John Waters film, this bit of sexual daring serves more as a touchstone in Sleeping Dogs Lie, the newest film from none other than Bob "Bobcat" Goldthwait.

Amy (Hamilton) has gone several years without talking or even acknowledging the act she performed on her dog. She's engaged to a nice, normal man named John (Bryce Johnson) and they are preparing to head to the hills of Hollywood to meet with her uptight parents. One night, while fooling around in Amy's father's car, John admits a small sexual indiscretion in the hopes of practicing full honesty in their relationship. However, when Amy admits her indiscretion to John and her junkie brother (Jack Plotnick), who is listening in, the result is not the welcoming forgiveness she was hoping for. Instead, it comes out to her parents (Geoffrey Pierson and Bonita Posehn) and their perfect perception of her gets warped, along with John's perception.

Harry and Max Review


Grim
Possibly the creepiest thing about Harry and Max - last year's Sundance scandal - is how resolutely normal it seems, once you get past the fact that it is a story about the tortured sexual relationship between two brothers. One would imagine that a film of this kind would take us from ominously shadowed flashbacks to increasingly lurid hints that finally culminate in a debauched final revelation of the brothers' secret. But instead, writer/director Christopher M√ľnch (The Hours and Times) shoots the whole thing in bright sunlight, usually outdoors, mostly just Harry and Max talking amiably about nothing, as brothers will do, nothing seeming at all awry. Then the fondling begins, neither of them really wanting to go through with it, yet neither wanting to stop, either. It's a portrait of a thoroughly damaged relationship that tries never to point the finger, but forgets along the way to tell a compelling story.

Harry (Bryce Johnson) and Max (Cole Williams) obviously come from a family with issues, the least of which is their mother (Michelle Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas), who has made them into bubblegum pop icons. Harry is, at 23 years old, over the hill for a boy band superstar, and trying to figure out what to do during that risky post-band/pre-solo career/Justin Timberlake phase. Right now, he's a borderline alcoholic with the requisitely distant and bitchy girlfriend, slouching towards tabloid self-destruction. Sixteen-year-old Max is the new apple of their mother's eye, his career just getting underway, due more to his cherub-like good looks than any singing ability. Harry is (to say the least) baffled by his sexuality, a blurred sort of bisexual whose identity has long been confused by all the times that he and Max fooled around when they were much younger. Max, on the other hand, is fully out of the closet, a precociously self-satisfied teen who vacillates between wanting to solve all his brother's problems and wanting to stay far away.

Harry & Max Review


Grim
The title characters in "Harry and Max" areboy-band brothers, one washed-up and clinging to a solo career and theother just making his first Teen Beat cover -- but you wouldn't know itfrom the story, which has nothing to do with their so-called musical careers.It takes place in the days surrounding a fraternal-bonding camping tripin which sexual histories and other goings-on are brought to the surface,including incest between the siblings.
