States of Control Review


Excellent
Michelangelo Antonioni's L'Avventura might have a hell of a time being released in theaters today. His trilogy of films starring the beautiful actress Monica Vitti (expanded into a quartet if you include Red Desert) contemplate the experience of a bored, frustrated woman in a heavily industrialized society ruled by false ideals of consumerism and power. The end of the world was not an apocalyptic fire, but a deadening malaise waking up in the dawn of the dead. There's no exit, whittling away the days with the distraction of fast food and shopping malls.

In 1960, L'Avventura was a box office smash despite its harsh critical reception at Cannes, where frustrated critics misunderstood its open-ended message for pure emptiness. What they lacked the ability to see was that very emptiness becoming the core message. This can also be said for Zack Winestine's challenging new film, States of Control, which picks up right where Antonioni left off. The times have changed, and this heroine, Lisa (brilliantly played by Jennifer van Dyck, Series 7) is not content to live a life of passive alienatation. She's gonna blow her superficial life apart and create something authentic and new, no matter what the cost.

The Jackal Review


Weak
If you can get past Diane Venora's laughable turn as a Russian agent (isn't that why we have Lena Olin?), you might find enough guilty pleasure in the cacophonous remake The Jackal to have a good time. Bruce Willis chews even more scenery as the villain than Richard Gere does as his Irish nemesis. Together they end up with quite an impressive body count -- watch especially for an early performance from the always entertaining Jack Black.
