Flashdance Review


Zero
1983 was a sleepy year in the midst of the first Reagan administration, but it was also the year of Flashdance. What America needed was a healthy dose of off-the-shoulder sweatshirts, leg warmers, and tight butts and inviting crotches gyrating in extreme close up. Barbara Bush and Al Haig must have been plotzing.

Flashdance is an exercise in Cinderellaesque teenage female wish fulfillment so preposterous that it shoots right over the top and is ultimately richly entertaining in spite of its ridiculousness. All you have to do it get past the main message, which is that finding success in life is not just about your talent. It's about your talent plus your ability to snag a rich and powerful boyfriend and put out. With production values courtesy of the legendary Simpson and Bruckheimer and a screenplay co-written by the polymorphously perverse Joe Eszterhas, you know you're in for quite a ride.

The Hidden Review


Very Good
Fun yet predictable spin on the evil-alien-jumping-from-human-body-to-body-and-the-good-alien-out-to-kill-it genre. Kyle MacLachlan is engaging as the unsure-in-a-human-body alien, and the series of hosts our villain inhabits are also a lot of fun -- notably including Claudia Christian as "a zoned-out stripper." Good, clean, Sunday-afternoon fun.

Finding Forrester Review


Good
They're already calling it "Good Will Hunting in the hood," and it's for good reason. Gus Van Sant's latest takes us back to the inner city (or The Bronx, at least) for a second verse of that feel-good feeling, with none other than Sean Connery as a crotchety old shut-in who teaches (and learns from, natch) a local teen (Rob Brown) who sneaks into his apartment.

If you've seen the trailer, you know the story. The local Bronx kids live in fear of "the window," a ghostlike man who stares down at them creepily while they shoot hoops. On a dare, young Jamal (Brown) sneaks into the place, finding it cluttered with books. He's given a scare and Jamal runs off, leaving his backpack behind.

High Roller: The Stu Ungar Story Review


OK
God forbid the marketing guy who decided to title this film Stuey (it has mercifully been changed), a biopic about legendary and tragic poker champ Stu Ungar.

Stu -- or Stuey, if you must -- won three World Series of Poker Championships, a feat which has not been equalled. Stu was also a hardcore drug addict and generally a lousy guy, virtually catatonic in the years leading up to his death. But he was a card player first, unmatched at reading his opponents and incredibly lucky at getting the cards he needed.

Lovely & Amazing Review


Weak

In the 1996 modest and little-seen relationship comedy delight "Walking and Talking," writer-director Nicole Holofcener demonstrated a preternatural knack for capturing the bonds between women with her candid and vicarious style of emotion honesty and funny, true-to-life dialogue. But her second independent film, "Lovely and Amazing," fails to find the same spark as it eavesdrops on a family of gratingly neurotic and insecure women.

Sad-eyed Brenda Blethyn, a specialist at screwed-up moms ("Little Voice," "Secrets and Lies"), is the emotionally messy matriarch, who spends most of the movie in the hospital due to complications from liposuction surgery. Doped up on painkillers and more depressed than usual (in part because her flirtations with her plastic surgeon aren't getting anywhere), she still has complaints about her daughters at the ready.

"One's really f**ked up," she tells the doctor, "and the other one isn't married."
