The Last Exorcism Review


Excellent
The best thing about this film is the way it continually subverts our expectations. It tells an unnerving story in a disarmingly natural way that's thoroughly believable, all without resorting to corny movie hokum. Until the end, that is.

Rev Cotton Marcus (Fabian) has been a preacher since he was a little boy, following in the footsteps of his father (Wright) to hold his congregation in the palm of his hand and exorcise demons when necessary. But a crisis has undermined his faith, so he hires a TV crew (Bahr and Grimes) to document the the ridiculous trickery he uses to perform one final exorcism. But nothing about this possessed girl (Bell), her father (Herthum) or brother (Jones) is as expected. And Cotton starts to doubt that there's a logical explanation.

Mail Order Wife Review


Very Good
Not too long ago, I attended the wedding of my best friend from high school. Iit was my first. These days, one shouldn't be surprised by this, but I sure as hell am. I sat at the outside ceremony in my dressiest shirt, watching the guy I spent most of my time with in high school make the biggest of all commitments. We talked after the ceremony and I knew that he was sincere in his tearful vows. As much as I think marriage before you can rent a car from Hertz isn't the wisest action, I felt like he wanted to make her happy and that she wanted to make him happy. One can't say the same for the two grooms and their wife in Huck Botko and Andrew Gurland's Mail Order Wife.

First off: It's a mockumentary. Don't start thinking Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy; think Remy Belvaux and Andre Bonzel's Man Bites Dog. Adrian (Adrian Martinez) has agreed to let a three-man crew to follow him as he orders, weds, and begins to live with a Chinese Mail order bride, in exchange for a little help with the cost. After three months of sending letters, Lichi (Eugenia Yuan) comes to America and weds Adrian. We start seeing subtle sadistic behavior in Adrian as he makes her watch his snake devour a mouse and then attempts to get her tubes tied... without telling her. Things get darker and flat-out creepy after that, and she begins to see the documentary's director Andrew (Andrew Gurland). They date and eventually get married too, and things start off well, but it's all downhill from there, and boy, do I mean it.
