Movie Reviews

For movie sophisticates only
Gary R. Lemons | Scottsdale, Arizona USA | 07/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I really think this is one of the best movies to come along in years. It is mysterious, creepy, and alarming but somehow it is also funny, endearing, and charming. How did the director combine so many different moods in one movie? This movie is a character development and mood type movie, not a plot type, so don't expect your typical American blood and guts killer type movie! Many people will not like this movie because they are so conditioned to nonstop action. This movie gives you time to reflect and enjoy the intriguing vivuals and eerie sound track. I loved it!"
A not so sweet hereafter
Brian D. Rubendall | Oakton, VA | 06/30/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Atom Egoyan followed up his masterpiece film "The Sweet Hereafter," with this strange movie about an unusual serial killer. Bob Hoskins gives a great performance as the man whose hobbies are gormet cooking and killing young girls. But he doesn't murder them outright, as young Felica discovers. She's come to his town seeking out the boyfriend who left her. With nowehere to go, she seemingly lucks out when Hoskins offers to allow her to stay at his large house. All of this sounds more intriguing than it ends up being on the screen. Though well acted, the movie moves slowly and ultimately just doesn't amount to all that much. Egoyan's movies are always literate, but this one is so to the point that you start to lose interest. There are no great moving moments like in "The Sweet Hereafter.""
A great film!

"This film was beautifully made, and the music is beautiful, too. Director Atom Egoyan's twist of the TV chef mother really adds some cinematic taste to the movie, though it does seem to confuse the story and the formation of Hilditch's personality. The ending is good. Personally, I think it is better than in the book. Bob Hoskins' performance is superb! This movie is a must-see only for his performance. I wonder why he was not even nominated for the Oscar. This reminds me of another mystery in 1987 when Hoskins swept almost every award with his performance in Neil Jordan's "Mona Lisa", then lost in the Oscar to Paul Newman's "The Color of Money"? Elaine Cassidy (Felicia) is a novice in film making, but surely not a novice in acting. She is great in the movie, too."
Gourmet Madness
Jules Brenner | Hollywood, CA, USA | 04/21/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Bob Hoskins splendidly plays a serial killer who is also a gourmet chef and manager of a catering service at a large factory. A respected and outwardly very respectable man whose mother was a TV personality chef whose influence has dominated him from childhood.Into his clutches falls a girl from Ireland pursuing the man who impregnated her and who she thinks is as much in love with her as she with him. The fun of the movie is in watching Hoskins develop her trust to the point where she stays with him in his home.The story is extremely well developed, a tight, concise study that is gripping from start to finish as we wrestle with the killer's intentions while fearing for his beautiful victim, played by Eileen Cassidy.The only off-note in this fine art house film is the final resolution where the plausability of the killer's dialogue and actions takes a turn completely inconsistent with the heretofore unerring observation of real human behavior and interaction. Suddenly, what comes out of Hoskin's mouth is anything that serves the writer/director's (Atom Egoyan) misdirection of what was needed for the denouement and finale. He should have given it more thought.The film, however, is worth seeing for all its other virtues and is highly recommended.~~ The Filmiliar Cineaste"
