Film Review  October 7, 2011, by Marc Savlov
"...Laugh if you must, but Koteas has built a solid, character-driven CV from small but memorable roles in films as varied as Gattaca, Fallen, and Shutter Island. Cook Jr., instantly recognizable from House on Haunted Hill, Rosemary's Baby, and pretty much every TV cop show ever made prior to his death, mined similar territory in his day..."

From her window seat, she watches Tom with his new wife Anna (Ferguson), frolicking in the yard with their new baby, and also the idyllic-seeming couple two doors down, Scott (Evans) and Megan (Bennett)..."

Film Review  May 16, 1997, by Alison Macor
"...If there is such a thing as Divine Intervention, it should have interceded before writer-director Daniel Taplitz's feature debut made it to the theatres. Despite a fairly bankable cast and the financial backing of Hollywood's own King Midas, executive producer Ivan Reitman (director of Fathers' Day and Dave, producer of National Lampoon's Animal House and Ghostbusters), Commandments lacks the ability to effectively blend the dramatic and comedic talents of stars Aidan Quinn and Courteney Cox..."

Feel-Good Generations
There's a reason scholar Rachel Maines, the author of The Technology of Orgasm: "Hysteria," the Vibrator, and Women's Sexual Satisfaction has survived the various assualts on her intellectual freedom: She's smart, she's funny, and she also "dances circles around reactionary clod-like thinking."
Books Story  September 10, 1999, by Lindsey Lane
"...After receiving her degree, Maines took a job as assistant professor at Clarkson University in northern New York. Because her teaching duties were light, she continued her research on the vibrator, trying to find a museum that might house a collection of these historic devices..."

"...In early May 2008, a woman’s dead body was discovered in an unoccupied New Hampshire farmhouse by someone peering through the window, intrigued by the “For Sale” sign out front. Apparently dead for several months, the decomposing remains were nevertheless easy to identify due to the two handwritten notebooks left “to whomever finds my body,” which detailed the woman’s thoughts and experiences while squatting in the empty house..."

Henry Poole Is Here
Director Mark Pellington has turned soft with this corny, redemptive, and/or inspirational tale that stars Luke Wilson.
starhalfstar
Film Review  August 15, 2008, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...Though his latest, Henry Poole Is Here, is full of all his usual ultrastylized, ultradark visual experimentation – an aesthetic that makes viewers feel like they’re drowning in an ocean of uncomfortable childhood memories – its story couldn’t be more corny, redemptive, or inspirational. Wilson plays Henry Poole, a bloated, unshaven drunk who buys a house in his old neighborhood and spends his days in quiet self-loathing, hoping not to be bothered..."

The Life Before Her Eyes
Although Uma Thurman and Evan Rachel Wood deliver strong performances, this film from the director of House of Sand and Fog is a muddled affront.
starhalfstar
Film Review  April 25, 2008, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...All of which makes it difficult to discuss in a review without disclosing the movie's big reveal, even though Perelman drops numerous overt clues along the way. The film is adapted by screenwriter Emil Stern from a novel by Laura Kasischke, but the film's texture seems to be all Perelman, who follows up House of Sand and Fog with this sophomore effort..."

The Amityville Horror
A dream home on Long Island is not all it's cracked up to be: The family inside sees dead people.
starhalfstar
Film Review  April 15, 2005, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Although the original Amityville Horror represents no great triumph of style or acting, it is an effective little tingler whose frights are steady, implied, and cumulative: We don’t see the things that go bump in the night so much as hear, feel, and sense them. In both films, the intrepid Lutz family (mother, stepfather, three kids, and a dog) purchase a house in which grisly murders occurred the year before, and in both films it takes 28 days before the family runs screaming from its dream home..."

The Conspirator
Robert Redford directs this historical movie about the trial of Mary Surratt, who was convicted of conspiracy to assassinate Abraham Lincoln.

Film Review  April 15, 2011, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Handled with the patient deliberateness that is one of the hallmarks of Redford’s directing career, The Conspirator illuminates historical events, if only by the sepia-toned gas lamps of mid-19th century America. The film is devoted to the trial of Mary Surratt (Wright), the owner of the boarding house where John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of Abraham Lincoln, met frequently with his confederates to plan their actions..."

Film Review  January 30, 1998, by Marc Savlov
"...Director Chappelle (Thieves Quarter) lays on the spook factor heavy in the first 30 minutes or so, but the film quickly devolves into a simplistic slash 'n' bash shoot-'em-up which goes nowhere fast. It's immensely unsatisfying given the caliber of actors involved, and although KNB effects house coughs up some wonderfully disgusting work, the whole enterprise seems rushed and oddly incomplete..."
