Hunky Dory Review


Good
With a lively recreation of 1970s South Wales, this relatively standard nostalgic teen drama holds our interest through its colourful settings and characters. Although without a clear central figure, the film feels rather diffuse.

Viv (Driver) is an unorthodox drama teacher at a Swansea school, where she encourages her students to express themselves.

I love a good thriller. And no one makes good thrillers any more. Enter Simpatico, with a cast boasting both Nick Nolte and Jeff Bridges, not to mention Albert Finney and Sharon Stone -- all set among the intrigue of a scandal involving horse racing, blackmail, and steamy sex. How could this miss?

The Velocity Of Gary Review


Terrible
I'd love to say that The Velocity of Gary is a critically-maligned, widely-hated, yet underrated film. Looks like the critics and the audiences were right. This is pure, unadulterated junk. I can stand "art movies." It's the lack of plot, asinine characters, and overall idiocy of Gary that makes this a wretched example of indie filmmaking.
