Numb Review


Good
Matthew Perry introduces us to yet another medical malady that apparently occurs only in the movies: After smoking too much pot, he becomes alienated from the outside world and even his own body and is diagnosed with "depersonalization disorder." The "numb" of the title refers to his utter lack of care about anything that happens around him, and he has to really work at trying to interact with other people.

The Osterman Weekend Review


Good
Think The Big Chill, but if all but one of the attendees were Soviet secret agents... or are they??? Rutger Hauer plays the good guy for once, as a Hardball-style TV show host who becomes convinced by a vengeful CIA agent (John Hurt) that his pals (including Craig T. "Coach" Nelson as the titular Osterman -- "a nihilistic anarchist living on risiduals") are all KGB operatives. Sam Peckinpah's final movie is stylish, has loads of nudity and other debauchery, and makes virtually no sense at all. Cheers!
