In Darkness Review


Excellent
Based on the true story of Polish Jews who hid in the sewers of Lvov for 14 months, this film can't help but grip us tightly for nearly two and a half hours. Fortunately, the filmmakers deepen the characters and situations beyond movie conventions.

Poldek (Wirckiewicz) works in the Lvov sewers with his young sidekick Szczepek (Skonieczny). When the Nazis begin to systematically clear out the Jewish ghetto, either murdering them or shipping them off to the camps, a handful of Jews escape into the sewers, where Poldek and Szczepek agree to help them for a price. But as the months go on, Poldek becomes increasingly involved in their lives, causing stress with his wife (Preis) back home and making him very nervous around his soldier pal Bortnik (Zurawski).

Run Lola Run Review


Excellent
After all that running, Lola had better be in shape. Indeed, relatively unknown German filmmaker Tom Tykwer has put this film through such an exhaustive workout that not only is it in tip top condition for viewing, it'll leave you a little out of breath when it's over.

A simple Rashomon meets Go tale of a lost sack of cash and twenty minutes to find 100,000 Deutsche Marks to replace it, Run Lola Run (aka Lola Rennt) follows Lola (Potente), the girlfriend of a hapless guy, Manni (Bleibtreu), a low-down on the organized crime totem pole. When Manni foolishly leaves said cash on the subway, Lola figures it's up to her to fix the situation before Manni does something even more stupid in the next 20 minutes, before the appointed time for the money drop.

Anatomy 2 Review


Grim
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.

Run Lola Run Review


Excellent

Every tick of the 81 minutes in "Run Lola Run" is pounding with kinetic energy and double-espresso adrenaline, like a marathon inside a rave inside a fusion reactor.

It's a movie that takes hold of not just your senses -- like a roller coaster does -- but your brain and spirit as well, tripping the mind fantastic with cascading freeform flashes of anticipation, panic, passion, desperation, hesitation, fear and fervor that is at once utterly exhilarating and absolutely exhausting.

The film, a festival circuit smash hit from Germany that's already become a pop culture phenomenon in Europe, is deceptively simple in design:
