A look at punk rockers and fatherhood. Mainly centered around Pennywise singer Jim Lindberg and his desire to both be there for and to take care of his family. Using interviews with punkers about fatherhood, Jim and the film makers explore what it mean's for punkers to grow up. Maybe more interesting was look at men who were with out parents or without fathers and how wanting to be there for their kids has helped to heal old wounds and give lives meaning. Well worth checking out.
the set up is pretty basic, a SWAT team is being sent into an apartment tower to capture a crime boss, and things go wrong. The action is great, direct, fresh and fun. The film drives forward in the mode of action video games of the late 80s and early 90s, with each level finding survivors facing tougher and tougher foes. It's a solid action film and worth checking out.
who ever thought that Bergman would have made a film like this, with 50s style runaway teens doing everything they were warned about. Watchable and stunning, well worth checking out for anyone looking for a depiction of teen life in europe in the 1950s.
More akin to the Romero Dead films than the current crop of teeny bopper Vampire flicks, Stakeland is a gritty story of survival in an America in ruins. It's a stark, bleak film searching for humanity in a world in chaos. Long after my viewing of the film, it's images and incidents have stuck with me, and I look forward to revisiting it.
basically the competing sex friends film Friends with Benefits beats everything about this film by a mile. The major problem is the leads neither of whom are likable or interesting.
