Southland Tales

Southland Tales
Since Donnie Darko insinuated itself into the canon of cult cinema with its much-buzzed Sundance premiere, a failed theatrical release and finally a strong following on DVD, the question has been what writer-director Richard Kelly would do next. Rumors swirled around Kelly's follow-up; it was over two-and-a-half hours long; it was a futuristic tale set in a fascist United States; actors like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Kevin Smith were all signed on to play various roles. It was being backed by Universal, a big change from Darko's indie origins. Now, after a Cannes premiere, Southland Tales has gone from rumor to reality. And the rumors were far more exciting than the reality of the film.

The Last Templar

The Last Templar
Midway through “The Last Templar,” a camel and rider pass right by F.B.I. agent Sean Daley (Scott Foley), who’s been stranded in the middle of a Turkish desert. Man and beast continue ambling toward the horizon without even registering our hero’s presence. While viewing the made-for-TV action/adventure film, I found that I could identify with Sean in that moment: I felt lost, exhausted and like a significant part of the plot had just passed me by and was heading who knows where.

About a Boy

About a Boy
Talk about an unenviable task... Universal Pictures has chosen About a Boy to be a sacrificial lamb, electing to open it on May 17, opposite Attack of the Clones. Maybe they're hoping that movie-goers disappointed by sell-outs at the latest Star Wars sequel will buy a ticket to this movie. Or maybe it's counter-programming, although the desire to see the Star Wars movies cuts across racial, class, gender, and generational boundaries. It's too bad that the distributor has matched About a Boy against such an undefeatable opponent - this movie is deserving of more exposure than it's likely to get. It may not be a "must-see" blockbuster, but it's better than a lot of what passes for summer entertainment.

Definitely, Maybe

Definitely, Maybe
In spite of an awkward title and an uninspired choice for the leading man, Definitely, Maybe nevertheless manages to charm with its bittersweet story of love and loss that ends on an upbeat and romantic note. The movie starts out as one thing but, via a sleight of hand that would impress a magician, it metamorphoses into something different. This romantic comedy/drama is structured in such a way that the outcome does not feel predetermined, and it's amazing how much a little unpredictability can result in increased character identification. It's also refreshing to watch a movie of this sort in which one doesn't know who represents "true love," who represents "romantic complications," and who might represent something else altogether. For writer/director Adam Brooks (who previously scripted the underrated Wimbledon), the ambitious result is not without flaws but, on the whole, it is a success.

Eurotrip

Eurotrip
It boggles the mind to consider that the fertile writing team of Alec Berg, David Mandel, and Jeff Schaffer, all of whom spent time scripting episodes of "Seinfeld," could turn out something as abysmally unfunny as Eurotrip. Then again, these guys were also responsible for The Cat in the Hat, so perhaps it's not all that surprising. At any rate, in the genre of teen sex films, Eurotrip doesn't set a new standard for lack of quality, but it comes close. The problem isn't that it spends 90 minutes marinating in lewdness and bad taste - those things are mandatory for this kind of movie - but that so many of the desperate jabs at humor fail to find their mark. Sex comedies need two obvious ingredients: sex and comedy. Eurotrip has some of the former (plenty of bare breasts and buns) but almost none of the latter.

I'm Not There

I'm Not There
Few figures in 20th century music are more deserving of the label "enigma" than Bob Dylan. Reclusive, frequently misunderstood, and never pigeonholed into a niche, Dylan has remained a mercurial figure for the entirety of his long career. So when filmmaker Todd Haynes (Far from Heaven) announced he was going to make a film that would deconstruct Dylan, there was reason for optimism. Unfortunately, the muddled reality, called I'm Not There, doesn't live up to the promise. To capture the essence of a sometimes pretentious, occasionally unfathomable artist, Haynes has made a sometimes pretentious, occasionally unfathomable film. Dylan fans will love it for the music, but that's about all the production has going for it. In the end, many viewers will leave with two impressions: the music is as good as it always has been and Dylan is a bigger asshole than one might have suspected.

The Odyssey

The Odyssey
The Odyssey, a high budget made-for-TV adaptation of Homer's epic adventure, is, by television standards, a monumental achievement. By theatrical standards, the special effects are ambitious but not overwhelming. Yet it's hard to deny that it captures the sweeping spirit of Homer's original poem with color and verve.

Armand Assante plays Odysseus, flawed hero of the Trojan War. When victory is won, he defies the gods with the sin of pride. Poseidon is angered and punishes him with the curse that he will never return home to his family and heritage. So he and his men are doomed to wander the Mediterranean Sea, bumping into powerful and deadly creatures that hamper his journey. Most of the episodes of Homer's poem are incorporated in some fashion. But one of the great ironies of the poem is that these adventures are told in flashback, Odysseus relating them to Telemachus, his son, after the fact. With what we know about Odysseus' character -- smart but devious -- it's entirely possible that his "real" adventures in the Mediterranean were fabricated in whole or in part. This television production adopts a more conventional storytelling style and has the adventures occur on scene such that there is no such doubt. Not necessarily a flaw in the show, but an interesting point to note.

Stone of Destiny

Stone of Destiny
Ian Hamilton (actor Charlie Cox), the protagonist and an ardent member of the Scottish nationalist organization, the Scottish Covenant Association, is very angry at what he sees as the political and economic subjugation of Scotland by England, and is sad that Scots are somewhat ashamed to be Scottish (symbolised by the description of Scotland as "North Britain" in, for example, a pub mirror shown in the film). After a petition to the British Parliament for the establishment of Scottish home rule is rejected, he decides to perform a symbolic act to put heart into the movement. With his friend, Bill Craig (Billy Boyd) he creates a daring scheme to bring the Stone of Destiny (a.k.a. the Stone of Scone) back to Scotland from Westminster Abbey in London, where it has resided for centuries following English military victories over the Scots in the Middle Ages.

Jason Ritter plays a video store clerk who works persistently to draw out a reclusive woman, played by Marianna Palka who often comes to the video store where he works and rents soft-core porn. Eventually, despite his strong optimism, her dislike of sex and resulting defensiveness drives them apart. It is revealed toward the end of the film that her dislike of both sex and relationships was fueled by sexual abuse at the hands of her father. It is implied throughout the film that this began early in her life, and continued into her adolescence. This abuse and most likely its large amounts of evidence are what causes her father to take care of all her needs such as her apartment, food, and other expenses. The film ends with a confrontation with her father, and ultimately Ritter's character reuniting with her, implying that she is prepared to be in a relationship with him.
