If You Only Knew Review


OK
Where else in the world do crazy, wacked-out romantic comedies invariably involve nutty roommate situations? Well, New York City, and If You Only Knew is no exception to the rule, following on the heels of some of its more capable brethren like Addicted to Love and Ed's Next Move. This time out, writer Johnathon Schaech is hot in pursuit of painter Alison Eastwood in a Village romance... ah, if only she didn't think he was gay! Moderately entertaining and certainly better than a lot of attempts at the genre.

Ten Benny Review


OK
A bizarre conflagration of GoodFellas, Moonstruck, and The Brothers McMullen, Ten Benny's story of three men coming of age in New Jersey is all over the map. At times it's good, at times it's unwatchable. As a whole, it's fair. The plotlines of gambling addiction and mob tyranny are pretty old, but like I say, it's not a horrible movie. Just not a great one.

Entropy Review


OK
Enjoyable despite being only midly comprehensible, Entropy gives us Steven Dorff as star -- and simultaneous on-screen narrator -- in a tour of his character's out-of-whack hipster-cum-filmmaker's life. While it's easy -- and forgivable -- to dismiss Entropy as dreck produced by Hollywood insiders, about Hollywood insiders, there are enough juicy moments in the film to merit giving it its due. Namely, Kelly Macdonald's charming performance as a brief love interest and a talking/smoking cat. U2's Bono guest-stars as himself.

Raging Bull Review


Essential
Twenty-five years since its release, Martin Scorsese's masterpiece Raging Bull has been crowned with so many critical laurels that another word in praise of it might seem hopelessly redundant. To claim that it puts to shame virtually any American film made since sounds about right, but it might be more worthwhile to note how the film showcases Scorsese's artistic genius in its purest form -- unsullied by ego, commercial pressures, or the self-doubt that can cloud a more jaded artist's vision. Raging Bull is a work of religious devotion by a filmmaker to his craft and an apotheosis of Scorsese's promise.

The film charts the life and career of boxer Jake LaMotta (Robert De Niro) from his rise to glory in the 1940s to his fall into washed-up grotesquery in the '50s, a lounge lizard parody of his former self. That LaMotta turns into the very sort of schmuck, fat-bellied and dissipated, that he would've abhorred in his youth marks one of Scorsese's most poignant treatments of his trademark theme of the individual struggling to transcend his worst instincts to achieve greatness and grace. Anger and bitterness are ever-present here, either churning at the film's surface or roiling just below in slow burn. LaMotta, the insecure hothead who chafes at the underworld hoods who've ensnared him, directs his rage outward in the form of sexual jealousy at his wife, Vickie (Cathy Moriarty), and through his tornado-like fury in the ring. The boxer's battle for self-acceptance even threatens the most meaningful and enduring relationship he's got, the one with his brother and manager, Joey (Joe Pesci); indeed, Raging Bull is, to a large extent, about the effect of blind ambition on our most meaningful, enduring relationships.
