Angela Review


Bad
A 10-year-old Christian Scientist girl tries to convince her 6-year-old sister that Satan is watching them all the time. As hopelessly artsy as it sounds, this is just plain morose, self-indulgent, and pointless filmmaking.

Reissued on DVD to take advantage of writer/director Rebecca Miller's new cachet courtesy of Personal Velocity, this inauspicious debt longs to be Heavenly Creatures -- or less explicably, Like Water for Chocolate, is the DVD case heralds. Too bad it's a third-rate indie, well photographed but ultimately not worth watching for either its precocious stars or its ham-fisted stars.

The Substance Of Fire Review


Good
"The substance of fire," apparently, is the printed word, in this play-adapted work about a man who is slowly ripping apart his publishing house, and his family to boot. Ron Rifkin appears in a rare -- perhaps unprecedented -- starring role, while Tony Goldwyn, Timothy Hutton, and Sarah Jessica Parker play the kiddies. Be warned this one's largely a melancholy exercise for drama students, but some nice performances help cut through the gooey histrionics to make the film somewhat worthwhile.
