shadow of the vampire
director: e. elias merhige
Pretentious, snoozy, and ultimately hollow at the center, this
film has "Straight to Video" stamped all over it. John Malkovich
is decent and Willem Defoe is highly entertaining but nothing
in this film really seems to work the way it was intended, had
I seen it on Showtime for free: I might have felt differently.

mr. death-the rise and fall of fred a leuchter jr
director: errol morris
A very well made and chilling documentary about an expert in the tools of capital punishment who becomes a Holocaust denier. Leuchter makes a fascinating subject for a documentary, his quiet detachment and ambiguous motives will haunt you long after the film is over.
