Movie Review: Orlando – Tilda Swinton

Tilda Swinton is amazing in Orlando as the son of Queen Elizabeth I who lives for 400 years, the first half as a man, the second half as a woman. Her transformation and the nuances of her facial expressions are amazing. What’s amazing is how subtle her transformations are. She starts out gawky and awkward and slowly gains grace as the years pass. It’s extremely believable.

Tilda Swinton. TILDA SWINTON. Need I say more?

See it! Gender-bending Tilda Swinton, damn.

Movie Review: Steal This Movie

Steal This Movie.
Pretty good informative look at the life of 60’s radical Abbie Hoffman. The character (played by D’Onofrio) becomes more interesting as the movie progresses; it starts out a bit too-much-informationy. Janeane Garofalo is great as Anita Hoffman. Sadly, I have been deprived of the last fifteen minutes through an evil conspiracy of VCR and DVD players.

[EDIT] When did I have a VCR? Not in many moons.

See it if you like docudramas.

Movie Review: Nunzio’s Second Cousin

In Boys Life II, Nunzio’s Second Cousin (short) D’Onofrio plays a gay cop who terrorizes some would-be gay bashers, forcing one to have dinner with him and his wacky mom. Harsh, interesting, unpredictable, and very well-acted. I found it hard to watch, a little gut-wrenching, but worthwhile.

See it if you can handle a downer.
