Based on the novel Derby Girl by Shauna Cross (who also scripted), Whip It marks the feature film directorial debut of Drew Barrymore. The dramedy follows teenager Bliss Cavendar (Ellen Page) who is looking for a way out of her dead-end hometown of Bodeen, Texas. Bliss' well-meaning but domineering mother Brooke (Marcia Gay Harden) is convinced that her daughter's only ticket out is to win the local Miss Blue Bonnet Pageant, but Bliss yearns for something other than her mom's debutante dreams or working as a waitress at the Oink Joint.

The original version of The Eye was a solid ghost picture, steeped in local culture and grounded in reality. It wasn't a classic, but it was effective, cycling through familiar rounds of slowly building tension followed by inevitable release. The overall atmosphere was gloomy, with only the faintest glimmer of hope. The new version of The Eye is a patchwork quilt that doesn't hold together with the same degree of focus (apologies in advance: it's difficult to avoid ocular references). There are suggestions of ambition, of a desire to infuse the heroine with greater control of her own destiny, but in the end the new version is neither better nor worse than the original -- just different.

Hard Candy is the kind of uncompromising independent motion picture that is likely to foster ambivalence in a significant portion of its audience. Admittedly, the film doesn't stand up well to a careful postmortem (many psychological thrillers don't), but it remains powerful and disturbing during the viewing experience, with flaws only surfacing after the credits have rolled. This movie will be most appreciated by those who don't demand viewer identification with an on-screen individual, because neither of Hard Candy's characters is the sort of person a healthy movie-goer would sympathize with.

There was a time, long before cable and VCRs, when live local news was one of the biggest commodities television stations had to sell. During this era, news anchors were judged far less by their journalistic skills than by their ability to convey trustworthiness. After all, we invited these men into our homes every evening, and believed every word they spoke. What we perhaps did not recognize was that these men were often petty and egotistical, and their sole redeeming qualities were that they could look good on camera and read flawlessly from a teleprompter. Such a man was Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell), the immensely popular anchor of San Diego's Channel 4 evening news.
Although Vera Drake is about the downfall of an abortionist working during a time when the law in England decreed that it was unlawful to perform an "unauthorized" operation, this isn't really an "abortion movie." That's the context, but the tale is a lot closer to a Greek tragedy than a sermon. As always, Mike Leigh keeps his camera firmly fixed on his central character. We see her, warts and all, at her best and worst, and her tragic flaw - that of willful obliviousness - is too obvious to miss.
Before I discuss the film and the work of lead actress Imelda Staunton, it is worth saying something about how Leigh handles the matter of abortion. By setting the movie in 1951, he sidesteps many of the thorny issues of contemporary movies about this subject. While the film is openly critical of the circumstances in the early 1950s that allowed women of wealth to have safe, comfortable procedures in clinics while poorer women were forced to resort to "back alley" operations, it does not take a stand on the "rightness" or "wrongness" of abortion in general. It treats it as a fact of existence that will not go away regardless of what the law says. Leigh's goal here is to dramatize, not preach. (For purposes of comparison, Vera Drake is less strident in its views of abortion than John Irving's Oscar-nominated The Cider House Rules, which dealt, albeit peripherally, with the same subject.)

Mission to Mars
Forget The Bonfire of the Vanities. With Mission to Mars, director Brian De Palma has reached a new nadir. Easily the worst movie to date of 2000 (although the year is still young...), Mission to Mars beats out such worthy contenders as Supernova, Eye of the Beholder, and Isn't She Great. Ineptly directed, badly acted, and scripted with an eye towards stupidity and incoherence, the film is worthwhile only to those who are in desperate need of a nap. And, as is often the case when a big budget, high profile motion picture self-destructs, this one does so in spectacular fashion. Sifting through the rubble, the only salvagable element is Ennio Morricone's score - music that, while not among the composer's top work, is infinitely better than anything else in this misbegotten movie.

Snow Angels tries to build an ensemble drama around a central tragedy. However, while individual aspects of the film work well on their own terms, the production as a whole lacks focus. Director David Gordon Green (All the Real Girls) gives us glimpses into the lives of the characters populating his canvas but there's a feeling that he's only scratching the surfaces of stories that have deeper undercurrents. And, frankly, Snow Angels is a downer. This isn't inherently a negative - after all, some of the cinema's most powerful motion pictures are downbeat. However, in this case, there's no emotional force behind all the gloom - just a sense that something's missing.

Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai illustrates that, in some bizarre way, artsy films can be subject to the same major flaws that often afflict Hollywood blockbusters. It's typical for a big budget motion picture to ignore logic and consistency in order to boost the level of adrenaline. Ghost Dog, the latest from iconoclast director Jim Jarmusch, commits the same sin, albeit for radically different reasons. Jarmusch is so infatuated with his subject matter and thematic content that he force-feeds his plot through a pair of totally incomprehensible twists (one near the beginning and one at the end) in order to make statements and get things moving in a particular direction. As a result, only the most ardent Jarmusch fan will be able to suspend disbelief, and the movie turns into an exercise in ideas rather than an excursion along a stable narrative route.

Forced to proceed on foot, Jack and Stephanie find the gothic Wayside Inn, where they try to phone for help. At the inn, they meet the occupants of the other car, the engaged couple Leslie and Randy. Because the phones are inoperative, both couples are forced to spend the night at the inn, which is staffed only by the eccentric proprieter Betty, her creepy son Pete (who develops an instant attraction for Leslie), and the gruff caretaker Stewart.
