Movie Reviews

Surprisingly good!
Morgan's Mom | 08/09/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"When the blurb about this DVD says it has an all-star cast, it's not kidding. Each of these short vignettes has not one but several bona fide stars, from Cate Blanchette as a young woman coming unglued over dinner to James Gandolfini as a man waking up from a drunken stupor to find that his wife has left him and, quite literally, taken EVERYTHING. I have to admit that I didn't expect much at all from this DVD, in part because I'd never heard of it and in part because it came from the bottom of the bargain bin at Wal-Mart. However, it really is surprisingly good. The vignettes themselves are a bit uneven - my favorites were "Standing Room Only" (a wordless, nearly slapstick piece starring Hugh Jackman) and "Euston Road" (a short and clever tale of a down-on-his-luck gambler who isn't quite what he seems). Even if there are only a few of the pieces that you really, really enjoy, for the $5 used DVD price, you can't go wrong. Give Stories of Lost Souls a try."
Don't buy it -- the cast is wasted here!

"As another reviewer indicates, this is truly terrible stuff, an embarrassment to the cast for sure. It's as if the writer-directors shared the same persuasive agent, and somehow the project, despite the amateurish scripts, had great early word-of-mouth, and the actors said "yes." Poor them. It wants to be a contemporary, British Twilight Zone, and misses by a mile because of the twin evils of dreadful writing and directing, on every single vignette. My copy goes straight to ebay."

"In every story, I kept waiting for something interesting to happen, and it never did. The description on the DVD sounded like they should be scary, or at least a little twisted, but nothing ever really happened. As the other reviews say, the actors talent is wasted."
Not so good
Susan G. Reed | 06/28/2009
(1 out of 5 stars)

"With all of the talent in this production I thought I couldn't lose. I was wrong. The actors (particularly Gandolfini and Knightley) did their part. It was the plots that were lacking. Too choppy, not enough time to care about the characters. Too bad, waste of great talent."
