Talk about an interesting cast worth watching. It stars Black Thought from the Roots, Naomie Harris, Rosario Dawson and Paul Dano as residents of a poverty stricken neighborhood in North Philladelphia (Philly! Woot!). The movie follows interconnected stories of love, relationships and poverty in this slice of life American tale. Looks powerful! In theaters March 6th 2009.

  • I refuse to see this movie mostly because I'm terrified it could actually happen in my lifetime.

Especially when you're safe inside and your contaminated lover is yelling at you to let him/ her in. Hmmmmm? What do you do?

Night Shamalayan's best, it has what I would dare to say is one of the best suspense scenes in cinema. That's a big accomplishment. It's the scene where Joaquin Pheonix's character is watching tv in the closet. I won't ruin it for you, just watch it.

Maria is a Colombian teenager who's been dealt a really crappy hand. She works a factory job to help support her family, lives in a cramped home, and gets pregnant by her boyfriend. So to make money she makes the poor and highly dangerous decision of becoming a drug mule. Thats right, swallowing 60 bags of heroin and flying into New York City. Ugggggggg.

This is a terrific movie from the 80's starring Harrison Ford, Helen Mirren and River Pheonix that I need to watch again. Ford plays a married man who charismatically lectures on the hypocrisy and corruption of America to anyone who will listen. Especially his family. So He decides to take his family back to nature and live off the land in the rural rainforest of South America. Trouble arises when he buts heads with missionaries and bandits. The movie is kind of told through the eyes of the son played by Pheonix as he sees his father become unglued and his family threatened.

Gritty, gripping and an utterly magnetic turn by Ryan Gosling (who has done nothing but the highest quality work since this film introduced him). Gosling plays Danny Balint, a neo-nazi skinhead who is living an impossibly contradictory life because he's also a Jew. Violent, articulate and terrifyingly charismatic, Balint's only saving grace (weakness?) is what drives his hatred - his Judaism. This isn't an easy film and saying that is a vast understatement. It's brutally violent, frightening but also important.
