Vera Farmiga, 1970s, exorcism and a haunted house, (forget the BS Salem Witchcraft part of the story.) The setting, art direction, characters and performances will please horror movie lightweights, like me: yes.
Danny Boyle directed, violent, nasty dark, psychological thriller vehicle for Rosario Dawson, who is amazing; co-starring James McAvoy and my favorite badassmofo Vincent Cassel: yes.
Film Noir, adaptation of a Cornell Woolrich novel, 81 minutes tight, great drunken flashback montage: yes!
If you don't mind an ambiguous and crappy ending, then you might enjoy this low budget attempt at psycho / time-travel / cultdom infiltration. The end is first surprising, then infuriating. Like a selfish lover who teases you to the brink of a mild yet satisfying orgasm, and leaves you hanging to go listen to bad music...
The novel was too wordy, couldn't get through it, but the movie is outstanding! Thrilling, dark, violent, Norwegian: yes!
Remember Meg Ryan? Bet she thought she could resuscitate her career with Jane Campion's dreadfully flawed attempt at an erotic, thriller, which is neither. BTW in "the cut" means "vagina" and yes, one of the characters actually delivers the title in a line. Awful.
The original that The Tourist was remade from. French thriller / romance: just okay.
Lots of Tom Cruise running: the best stride on screen. Brad Bird: you did it! Plus, it's funny. Yes!
Danny Glover, Jared Leto, Dennis Quaid, even Walt(on) Goggins are oh so young in this dated yet entertaining, suspenseful saga about a rouge FBI agent's pursuit of a devious serial killer. Trains and Colorado locations used to maximum. R. Lee Ermey (Full Metal Jacket) seems a bit cliche, but surrender and you'll love him by the end.
