jackass number two

jackass: the movie
director: jeff tremaine
It's clear why Johnny Knoxville is the star: he's obnoxious, but endearingly so -- while many of his colleaugues are just reckless dopes, whose exploits are amazing, but with whom you probably wouldn't want to hang out. At the beginning of the film, when a "don't try this at home" type warning came on the screen, a kid at the front of the theatre piped up "yeah, right," which made me a little nervous, since I have to share a neighborhood with him and his nutjob pals.

james ellroy's feast of death
director: vikram jayanti
Interesting documentary about the obsessions that fuel
Ellroy's dark labyrinthine novels; the centerpiece of the film
being a round table discussion between Ellroy and several
LAPD homicide detectives. It is no frills filmmaking, nothing
fancy here, that allows Ellroy to propel the film forward with
his own intensity.

jay and silent bob strike back
director: kevin smith
This is not a very good movie but it still cracked me up. Sort of the film equivalent of a special crossover issue of your favorite comic book where all you heroes team up to fight a common foe......or so I would imagine.

jesus' son
director: alison maclean
A dreamy meandering series of vignettes about an oddball know only as Fuckhead, this film has it moments but you're gonna wish for more of them. The lead character is interesting enough and the film is visually beautiful but it still winds up being less than the sum of its parts.

joe gould's secret
director: stanley tucci
Things start of promising enough, as Tucci playing Joseph Mitchell befriends the title character who is writing a history of the world based on conversations and eavesdropping. After a great set-up the film just plods along to a predictable conclusion with moments of insight and depth along the way….not bad but nothing to get very excited about either.

juno
director: jason reitman
Miss Juno and her wild band are apparently in the hip Indie film of the season. At times, it felt like Indie Film 101, but I still liked it and was especially moved by the lead character's quirky and quite unlikely journey to a state that I can only describe as grace.
