The two steadily begin to develop a strong bond, as Kate is able to see Bec’s true appreciation for every part of life, and feels a little more alive because of it.

13 Moons Review


Terrible
Rarely have so many great actors come together in a film to create so few worth watching.

13 Moons is another dud from indie director Alexandre Rockwell (he was the one director in Four Rooms who you'd never even heard of; his 1992 film In the Soup remains his sole worthwhile credit). Rockwell is probably better known for his ex-wife (Jennifer Beals, to whom he was married from 1986 to 1996) than for his directing.

Palookaville Review


Good
Very cute and quirky, this indie comedy has three friends haplessly trying to make a go at it as crooks. Funny (yet done better in Small Time Crooks), these guys are so clueless they actually rent old heist movies to get tips on robbing an armored car. Naturally, the whole town seems to pop in on them to watch alongside. Very pleasant but it's a road we've been down a time or two before (and since). But let me point one thing out: Whatever they did to make Frances McDormand look so damn hot, well, it worked.

Playing God Review


Grim
Extremely uneven movie about a defrocked L.A. surgeon/drug addict (Duchovny) who falls in with a two-bit mobster (Hutton) and his gorgeous moll (Jolie). A curious premise and a strong antihero are wasted, though, because Playing God has virtually no plot to speak of, which, you know, can be a hindrance to a movie from time to time.
