School For Seduction Review


Good
It's one of those lighthearted films which can only be described as "cute." And in fact, its premise ought to feel awfully familiar to you by now. In School for Seduction, the impossibly gorgeous Kelly Brook stars as one Sophia Rosselini, an Italian sexpot who arrives in Newcastle, England, to host a "seduction" class for the local working girls. In between classes, the film teaches us about the personal struggles of the gals (namely their troubles with men, hence the need for a seduction class), and eventually they come into their own.

Now this formula has been employed far and wide (and has become particularly popular in UK comedies), spurred on by the success of The Full Monty. Now we've got Shall We Dance?, Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing & Charm School, and Seduction.

Velvet Goldmine Review


OK
Todd, you've done better than this. In Velvet Goldmine, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers stars as, well, Ziggy Stardust in the era of Glam Rock -- bisexual with McGregor's Curt Wild (think Kurt Cobain if he was into glitter) and wife Collette. 15 or so years after the death of glam, the drippy, mopey reporter Bale is sent to do a "whatever happened to..." story. Haynes is obviously very in love with this era to have invented this little story. Too bad the script is so dumb and lifeless (the alien origin of Oscar Wilde is even alleged) that none of that emotion comes across. Snooze.

Pandaemonium Review


Good
How'd Coleridge and Wordsworth write all that nutty poetry? By getting high off of helium, nitrous oxide, opium, and its ilk. Julien Temple's ambitious film is nonetheless perplexing, a Kafka-meets-Coming Home story of friendship and betrayal as well as war (the French revolution) and drugs. It's awesome to look at, but its historical accuracy seems iffy at best. And it's far too long.
