What's Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)

Gilbert Grape lives in Endora, a place where nothing much happens. The only times the police got something to do is when Gilbert's autistic brother Arnie tries to climb up on the watertower nearby. Taking care of Arnie is mostly Gilbert's task which can be pretty demanding, at least while you are working at the local grocery store. Then one day Becky and her grandmother passes through Endora getting trouble with the car. Gilbert falls in love with Becky, but gets problems when he tries to find time for his own private life. This film is a deeply moving glimpse into the frustration, sadness and triumph of love in what some would classify as a dysfunctional family. Leonardo DiCaprio was nominated for an Oscar and this is the movie that should have made him a star. He is unbelievably fabulous in it.

Yet another superbly awesome performance from John Depp. I'm actually becoming increasingly convinced that he simply can't be in a bad film. Per this one, it's about a writer who locks himself in a cabin after a breakup and becomes stocked by the worst of influences. It sounds a lot worse than it is.

By 'good' I don't mean cinematic masterpiece. I mean: a) I wasn't mad at it b) I was entertained c) i didn't feel like I had just wasted the last hour and a half Plus, you get to watch acting favs like Depp, Walken and Charles Dutton. The movie is a real time narrative about a guy (Depp) who gets tangled up in an assassination plot of a political figure. Christopher Walken plays the goon thats holding Depp's daughter hostage. If he doesn't kill the politico, his cute lil daughter gets it. yikes.

Having grown up not too far from Sleepy Hollow, I was more than familiar with the legend when I first watched this film. But director Tim Burton takes it another step creepier, making it all the more engrossing and intriguing. And, of course, Johnny Depp is the perfect Ichabod Crane, entranced by Christina Ricci's otherwordly countenance.
