Viridian Ventures
Take nothing but pictures; leave nothing but carbon footprints?
Features Story  May 25, 2007, by Kate X Messer


Lady Macbeth
A violent, desperate housewife plots murder
starstar
Film Review  July 28, 2017, by Steve Davis
"...The character’s near-sociopathic drive to defy the misogynistic social norms that imprisoned women of her position and time is ripe with possibility, so why does Lady Macbeth ultimately feel like a gimmick, and an unsatisfying one at that? With no backstory to inform the psychology of its homicidal central character, the movie dictates that you sympathize with Katherine after witnessing the humiliations she endures at the hand of both her husband and the father-in-law who purchased her, and yet recoil with a perverse sense of admiration at the lengths to which she will go to counter such dehumanizing cruelty. By the time an innocent is sacrificed in the film’s third act, Katherine is drained of any sympathy or motive, and the movie ventures into the melodramatic territory it so carefully avoids up to that point..."

Smurfs: The Lost Village
The little blue critters are back

Film Review  April 7, 2017, by Marc Savlov
"...All’s well that ends well, but not really, because now the purposeless protagonist has to track down a mysterious being she briefly glimpsed in the Forbidden Forest. Determinedly setting out on her own – except for the four clownish man-Smurfs who tag along to make sure nothing bad happens to their blond goddess – she evades Gargamel’s clutches and ventures off into unknown territory with predictable results..."

Captain Phillips
Tom Hanks is at his best in this multidimensional thriller that grabs real life by the throat.
starstarstarstar
Film Review  October 11, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Captain Phillips ventures out to high seas and takes the audience along for a tense, claustrophobic ride. Based on true events from 2009 in which the U.S.-flagged cargo ship Maersk Alabama was captured for ransom by Somali pirates, the film also draws from Captain Richard Phillips’ recounting of the experience in his book A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea..."

American Mary
The plastic surgery performed in this horror film gives real meaning to going under the knife.
star
Film Review  May 31, 2013, by Steve Davis
"...American Mary ventures into genre territory only briefly, after its unlicensed practitioner is drugged and raped by an authority figure for no apparent reason. (The film’s spotty script is rife with many such WTF moments.) She exacts vengeance on her perpetrator with the zeal of Dr..."

The Innkeepers
With slow-burn shudders, Ti West's haunted-inn story provides a stellar model for creeping dread.
starstarstarhalfstar
Film Review  February 3, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...What makes The Innkeepers such an unnerving experience isn't the outright horror but rather the lack of it. West mines every single floorboard creek and shadowy corridor for maximum frisson; this film ventures far beyond creepy and into the rarely explored land of genuine, incremental fear..."

Shrek Forever After
What’s an ogre with a midlife crisis to do? The Shrek series closes by reminding us "it's a wonderful life."
starstarhalfstar
Film Review  May 21, 2010, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Shrek’s depression is ripe for the picking when he’s offered a deal by Rumpelstiltskin (Dohrn) that allows him to be a scary ogre for a day in exchange for any past day in his life. With this, Shrek ventures into It’s a Wonderful Life territory, getting to see what the community would be like for others had he never been born..."

Lars and the Real Girl
This movie's high-concept premise would be easy to dismiss were it not so flawlessly executed.
starstarstarhalfstar
Film Review  October 26, 2007, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Painfully reticent, Lars shocks his family and community when, out of the blue, he introduces them to the wheelchair-bound Bianca, a lifelike sex doll with whom he forges a chaste romantic relationship. Despite opportunities galore for smutty gags, Lars and the Real Girl never ventures down this path, staying on its best behavior in matters of courtship and film ratings..."

Tamala 2010: A Punk Cat in Space
This new anime import marks a break with the Japanese traditions and invents a wholly original and kittenish appeal.
starstarstarstar
Film Review  September 26, 2003, by Marc Savlov
"...Everything you’ve come to expect from animé, and therefore everything that has curdled that most prolific of Japanese cinematic pop culture traditions, is missing. In their absence is the surreal, almost childlike story of Tamala, a young kitten from "Meguro City, Tokyo, Cat Earth, Feline Galaxy," who disobeys her human, anaconda-loving mother one day and ventures into space in search of the Orion Galaxy..."

star
Film Review  January 17, 2003, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...In National Security, Lawrence delivers his nonstop mugging and Zahn provides decent foil as Lawrence's reluctant partner in crime-stopping, but the film nevertheless falls flatter than, well, a Hollywood comedy release in January. It's directed by Dennis Dugan with all the flair he failed to display in such previous ventures as Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy, and Saving Silverman, and it was scripted by Jay Scherick and David Ronn, the same writing team who previously gave us the witless comedies Serving Sara and I Spy..."

Film Review  October 16, 1998, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...It's storytelling at its most irresistible, a sinewy saga that seamlessly snakes the boundary lines separating ghost tale from family epic and historical drama from psychological subjectivism. At nearly three hours running time, the movie covers a lot of turf though it infrequently ventures past the front gate of Sethe's home at 124 Bluestone Road..."

"...His energy, vitality and curiosities expand to fill every scene, pleasurably captivating the audience much like the spell he casts over the young artiste. Adolpho is so taken with Joe's charisma that he's able to partake in the criminal cash-raising ventures that Joe leads him into..."

Film Review  June 11, 1993, by Pamela Bruce
"...Further complications arise when an ally tribe request the Ganiga's assistance in a tribal war, and all work on the plantation ceases, leaving a thoroughly frustrated Leahy caught between the old world of his tribal roots and the modern, neocolonial values that made him successful. Shot in 16mm with a low budget, this documentary manages to avoid the cheap look usually associated with such ventures through good sound quality and smooth transitions..."
