Limited Selection

September 3rd, 2004

A Korean War Epic leads the limited releases this week, at least in terms of theatre count. But we are still in the awkward transition stage from Blockbuster Counter-Programming movies to Award Season Hopefuls. Things should pick up shortly.

Remember Me, My Love - Reviews
Italian film about a highly dysfunctional family in which individual aspirations a pulling the family apart. The film is earning the best reviews of the week, but at only 73% positive, it is not earning overwhelming praise. The film opens in only two theatres in New York City.

Tae Guik Gi: The Brotherhood of War - Reviews
The film is a war epic about the effects on the Korea War on two brothers who were drafted into the war. Made with an 8 figure budget, the battle scenes are impressive, but as the critics indicate, the emotional side is less compelling.

Warriors of Heaven and Earth - Reviews
The timing of this movie to follow Hero is not a coincidence. Unfortunately, it's going to take more than cross-movie promotion for this film to have the success of Hero.

Virgins - Reviews
It's not often a film will use date rape as the impetuous for a religious awakening, but this film does just that. Jessie is the black sheep of a religious family, but after she loses consciousness after a night of drinking, (and a blunt force trauma to the head courtesy a tree) she becomes pregnant. And being the most logical deduction you can make given the circumstances, she assumes she's carrying the Son of God.
