Beautiful Ohio Review


Very Good
It's virtually impossible to watch Beautiful Ohio without films like The Ice Storm and The Squid and the Whale unspooling in your mind at the same time. That's not a criticism; it's a tip of the hat to first-time director (and actor and brother of Rob, and ex-husband of Hilary Swank) Chad Lowe, who takes an intelligent Ethan Canin script about a troubled family and gives it just enough early-'70s period piece touches to make it the equal of the aforementioned earlier films.

The Messerman family of suburban Ohio, circa 1973, is a little bit weird. Dad Simon (William Hurt) is a frustrated intellectual who earns a living as an insurance salesman but fancies himself as a great mind and is prone to speaking in brilliant quotations from geniuses of the past. His wife Judith (Rita Wilson) is just as enamored of her own intellect and has a deep love of classical music. Their older son Clive (David Call) is a supersmart math geek/long-haired hippie who breezes through statewide math competitions without even giving a damn. He's more into sparking up bongs in his bedroom with his luscious girlfriend Sandra (Michelle Trachtenberg) and his best friend Elliot (Hale Appleman), with whom he shares a secret language. Somewhat lost in the shuffle is the younger teenage son, William (Brett Davern), who is both amused and put off by his family's eccentric behavior.

Floating Review


Excellent
It might be wandering, it might be inconsistent, and it might have questionable editing (that's putting it mildly), but dammit I enjoyed Floating. This dark coming-of-age story has a lower-class underachiever (Norman Reedus) dealing with a crippled widower father (Will Lyman), stoner friends, and the new rich kid across from the lake where they all live, with Reedus's Van trying to make sense of his future during another wasted summer after highschool. The title isn't just a reference to Van's swimming ability, it's a metaphor for his life, and the movie doesn't take the easy way out in helping him out of his rut. Very interesting if you're a patient viewer.

The Apartment Complex Review


Good
Atmospheric non-thriller about a guy driven mad by a Hollywood apartment complex and its nutty residents. Passable flick but hardly memorable.

Acceptable Risk Review


Weak
While his wife was busy winning an Oscar for Boys Don't Cry, poor Chad Lowe was crying in the audience -- and not just because he was happy for Hilary Swank, but because he had to star in this made-for-the-Superstation-WTBS atrocity, Acceptable Risk.

Sure, you're probably saying that worse movies about Salem witch trial-era fungi that resurface 300 years later, are turned into experimental medicine by researchers for use as brain medicing, and then slowly turn the subjects into violent madmen have been made. And if there were any other movies about evil witch spores, you'd probably be right. But as it stands, Risk falls into every common pitfall of low-grade horror movies: a nonsensical setup, no rationale or explanation for the plot, a series of "mysterious" events designed solely to scare you, and a relatively pat ending.

Unfaithful Review


OK

For about five minutes at the beginning of its Third Act, the adultery-fueled sexual potboiler "Unfaithful" seems to mull over the possibility of becoming more than just a glossy, tawdry, yuppie bodice-ripper.

The suburban New York couple, played by Diane Lane and Richard Gere, whose marriage has come unglued because of the wife's fling with a seductive young Lothario, realize as their eyes meet across a crowded gathering at their home that they both know each other's worst secret and they could be dangerous to one other.

At this moment, director Adrian Lyne has a chance to twist "Unfaithful" into a subtle psychological puzzle, a game of trust and mistrust. But such intellectual aspirations have never been Lyne's cup of tea. The director of "9 1/2 Weeks," "Fatal Attraction," "Indecent Proposal" and the 1998 "Lolita" remake, he's always been far more interested in psychosexual sensationalism than emotional-cerebral exploration. Just as he's beginning to delve more deeply into these characters' conscience, Lyne fogs up the lens again and gets lost in the motivational ambiguity.
