Roseland Review


Good
Christopher Walken's appearance here -- in a very early role, a year before his breakout in The Deer Hunter -- is the primary (if not the only) reason to check out Roseland, which also happens to be an early Merchant-Ivory collaboration, too. Roseland is a movie about the eponymous New York dance hall, set in the 1970s (I'm estimating), and comprising three stories set in its cavernous environs.

Barely connected, the middle segment is Walken's -- cleverly titled "The Hustle" -- as he plays a gigolo working three different women, each with different needs and different issues. Walken hadn't created his signature speaking cadence yet, and it's shocking not only to hear him deliver lines in a relatively normal voice, but also with such a large pompadour. This is also Walken's first film where his masterful dancing is on display (see also 1981's Pennies from Heaven) -- and fans of "Weapon of Choice" will definitely want to check out a little vintage Walken high step here.

Brother Bear Review


Weak

Perhaps a better title would have been "Oh Brother! Bear."

Disney's latest assembly-line cartoon about an orphan hero learning generic life-affirming lessons to the bland light-rock melodies of Phil Collins, "Brother Bear" is so overloaded with musical montage sequences of Northwestern nature and lip-service touches of ancient Native American culture that there's hardly room left for character development.

Joaquin Phoenix provides the voice of Kenai, a sullen Indian teenager who is hell-bent on tracking and killing a bear he blames for his guardian big brother's death -- until he's transformed into a bear himself by the spirits, hell-bent on teaching him to grow up and not go off half-cocked.
