Bodies, Rest & Motion Review


Good
The early '90s were a bonanza for indie filmmakers. Digital video hadn't hit the scene yet, so producers had to raise a lot of money to buy film and equipment, and they often got access to indie-friendly celebs to help them with the picture. Bodies, Rest & Motion is a high-end indie archetype, and it's populated by nothing but stars. The story is also proto-'90s-indie: Four aimless slackers, each with a spurious agenda, couple, de-couple, and go nuts at random. The driving force, if you can call it that, is Tim Roth's sudden urge to leave Arizona for Butte, Montana ("The city of the future!"), which culminates in his girlfriend (Bridget Fonda) sleeping with the guy (Eric Stoltz) who comes to paint their house. Because in 1993, that's just what you did. It's overall well-acted but often too stupid to bear.

Hi-Life Review


Weak
One guy (Scott) goes bar-hopping in New York, trying to raise $900 because some jerk (Stoltz) has to pay off a gambling debt. About as exciting as it sounds.
