Late Night Shopping Review


Good
Oddly enough, there's little shopping at all in Late Night Shopping. How could there be? The four Brits whom the film resolves around all work at night -- so obviously they'd have to do their shopping during the day.

That little inconsistency is only the first of hundreds you'll find in this virtually unseen flick, which features some engaging characters and performances but blows it all with a script that alternates between illogical and just plain dumb.

Love Actually Review


Very Good
I can only presume that the British calendar is so uniquely screwy that it allows for a Christmas movie to open a week after Halloween. Or maybe Love Actually is just in a universe of its own... one in which the prime minister is inaugurated in November and where an adverb can be used to modify a noun.

But a little oddness is forgivable: Directing a movie is a strange place for Richard Curtis, who's written umpteen Brit-friendly movies and TV shows over the years but hasn't directed one, until now.

Aimée & Jaguar Review


OK
There's no Aimée and no Jaguar in this oh-so-serious German production about a lesbian Jew named Felice (Maria Schrader) and the very German mother-of-four (Juliane Köhler) she falls in love with all during the Battle of Berlin. Through interminable repetition, we watch this unlikely romance develop while the Gestapo tracks down Felice and she plays nice with her underground lesbian films. Based on a true story, though that doesn't really make it all that compelling.

Anatomy 2 Review


Weak
When young medical student Jo Hauser (Barnaby Metschurat) leaves his small town and his crippled brother for an internship at a Berlin hospital, he quickly becomes aware of Professor Muller-LaRousse (Herbert Knaup), who holds sway as a famous neurosurgeon revered by a group of doctors chosen to be part of his secret clan. Its purpose is to assist his revolutionary development of computer-controlled muscle replacement and is based on disavowing the Hippocratic Oath as an undesirable obstruction to advanced science, like his project to build body parts for a master race.

Hauser is eventually invited to join and, after accepting all legal responsibility for anything that may come of it, embraces the rare privilege of being one of the insiders and an experimental guinea pig. Sexy doctor Viktoria (Heike Makatsch) takes the innocent intern under her wing and inside her panties for a chemically enhanced morale boost in the lab. It's her job to keep him loyal and beyond the reach of nurse Lee (beautiful Filipina Rosie Alvarez), a stable, sensitive type who has fallen for the finer attributes of the young intern. Lee remains his island of sensibility even when she discovers that her boy has volunteered to have synthetic muscles implanted in his legs in order to beat everyone on the soccer field. It's not too long before unrestrained experimentation turns diabolical and homicidal, as does any reason to take any of it seriously.

Love Actually Review


OK

"Love Actually" is terminally precious. Chirpy "classic" pop songs populate every third scene. It has no structure, just a jumble of interconnected stories -- some little dramas, some little comedies -- about love, flirtation, courtship and heartbreak, all of which will pay off just in time for a lovely London Christmas.

It's the kind of pandering, populist movie in which Hugh Grant, playing the prime minister of England, joyously shakes his booty to The Pointer Sisters' "Jump (For My Love)" until he suddenly, to his great embarrassment, realizes he's being watched. It offers no real surprises except in how and when it reveals the inevitable six degrees of separation between each anecdotal yarn -- none of which has enough substance to ever stand on its own (nor would you want them to!).

And yet, you'd have to be a terrible grump to not like "Love Actually" at least a little.

AimÉe & Jaguar Review


OK

Maybe I'm just thick, but the stirring and tragic lesbians-under-the-Third-Reich romantic tear-jerker "Aimée and Jaguar" seemed awfully vague to me about some important points.

For instance, it wasn't until I read the press kit that I realized one of the lovers -- pet name Jaguar, real name Felice, played by Maria Schrader -- was a part of the Jewish underground.

I knew she was Jewish, obviously. That's a large part of this based-on-fact film. It's clear that she's very secretive toward Aimée -- real name Lilly, played by Juliane Kohler -- the Nazi officer's housewife whom she befriended, seduced and fell in love with.
