Gun-shy (2003) Review


OK
Curious and bleak, Dito Tsintsadze's story of rank obsession will gain fans among thrill-seekers and rubberneckers alike, while leaving most moviegoers baffled.

Sophie Scholl Review


Excellent
It's not easy, taking situations of high import and rendering them into drama without reducing its participants to saints and demons. Especially when one is confronted with such a one as Sophie Magdalena Scholl, the real-life heroine so radiantly portrayed by Julia Jentsch in the martyr drama Sophie Scholl - a smart, strident beacon for those fighting oppression, you could do much worse, and many films do.

In 1943, the 21-year-old Scholl was a student in Munich and member of the White Rose anti-Nazi resistance group. On February 18, Sophie and her brother Hans (Fabian Hinrichs) were arrested for distributing leaflets at the local university. On February 22, the two of them, along with a third member, were sentenced to death and executed the same day. Marc Rothemund's sober film is about what happens during that short stretch of time, how these three go from non-violent writers of pamphlets to facing down an apoplectic Nazi judge, fairly spitting with fury at the mere sight of those who would defame the Führer and handing out executions like candy.
