Cold Souls Review


Excellent
Like a collision of Charlie Kaufman and Woody Allen, this dark comedy is a surreal gem, astutely examining the issue of identity. And it gives the cast, especially Giamatti, terrific characters to sink their teeth into.

Paul Giamatti (as himself) is a New York actor rehearsing for a stage production of Uncle Vanya. Understandably, the play is depressing him, so he decides to put his soul in storage and lighten up. He finds a facility in the Yellow Pages, and the staff there (Strathairn and Ambrose) help him to desoul his body, although he's a little unnerved when, in a jar, his soul looks like a common chick pea. Meanwhile, Nina (Korzun) is a mule transporting souls between Russia and America, which causes rather serious complications for Paul.

Gunner Palace Review


Good
For all the Iraq war news filling up newspapers, magazines, nightly broadcasts, and the Internet feeds, it's stunning how little of it is truly on-the-ground frontline reporting. The mainstream press corps - which had celebrated its own bravery by being embedded with the military juggernaut that routed Saddam's army in record time - now contents itself with the bare minimum. Reporters based in fortified hotels call in their stories on the most recent car bombings, while anchors and commentators back in New York talk about what they think it all means. 24 hours of news, not much information.

One film that helps fight this dispiriting trend, the problematic but worthy documentary Gunner Palace, opened in September 2003 (four months after what the military termed "major combat" in Iraq had finished) sardonically noting, over footage of insurgents and explosions, "This is minor combat." The film shadows the 400 soldiers of the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Field Artillery Regiment of the 1st Armored Division, who have set up camp in one of Saddam's old palaces. It's a sublimely surreal home base, partially bombed-out and full of the soaring ceilings and tacky décor that typify such places (somewhere, somebody is hopefully planning a fake Extreme Makeover episode on just such a spot) - the swimming pool out back helps, too. That's where the soldiers, or gunners, kill time between patrols, floating on inner tubes under the Iraqi sun. As Jessie Potts (aka "The Mayor of Gunner Palace") puts it, "We dropped a bomb on it, now we party in it."

Diner Review


Excellent
Six guys try to make sense of their lives before one of them is married. But why would anyone want to marry Steve Guttenberg (in the only good role of his life, I think)? Witty and fun.
