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.

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.

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.

Maybe I was too young at the time to read the book, but seeing the movie as an adult didn't make this story easier to swallow. The story is about an ex slave haunted by the trauma and terror of her past life. Having been brutalized savagely by her slave masters, she made a desperate choice which resulted in the death of her own children. Now, with a new life and a teen daughter, she is haunted, literally by a spirit that may have something to do with the mysterious young woman that has just entered her family's life.
