Philosophy professor Walter Zarrow is wounded during a mugging. In an effort to escape he rings buzzers indiscriminately, waking Sam, a middle aged father of two having an affair in the city. Sam reluctantly answers Zarrow's pleas, and Zarrow loses consciousness in his arms. Through an exploration of why these men, along with the mugger, and an addict named Joe, come together, we explore New York City. The experience of Zarrow, Sam, Joe and Zarrow's assailant ripple quickly out to include the connected lives of a housewife struggling with alcoholism, a stoner teen desperate to lose his virginity, a brilliant but failed writer fighting addiction, two parents confronting the prospect of terminal illness, and a brilliant grad student who wounds herself to feel alive.

The story of how a man's life was changed by an operation that had him literally being told he was a child was so dramatic and surprising, I have to say I was actually surprised at the end. It is an interesting story that is not overly cliche, I think that the only thing that was a little too forced was the ending, but that was probably due to the limited time in which I had the chance to watch it. It was definitely a film I would recommend to anyone who is into the thought-provoking genre. It definitely shows the side of the medical profession that is not always portrayed, and the impact that one's decisions have on others. I would definitely recommend this film to anyone who is into the thought-provoking genre. The film is not a horror film, but I do think it is a great film for a change.

Another movie that I think has been made on a shoestring budget, and that has a story line that is hard to follow. This movie has a very unique premise - a guy and a girl are trying to make a film that will make a difference, but this story takes place in the very middle of the action, and it's a slow moving story. I did like it, but I wouldn't really recommend it for anyone who doesn't like movies with plot twists. The actors did a good job in this film, but I thought that the directing was a little weak, and the acting was also not great.

Anesthesia is a movie that is not a typical Michael Moore film. It has a great idea and a good cast. The acting is pretty good, but Moore really does nothing to make this film any better. I felt that Moore would have been better off doing something else. The idea of a movie about an anesthesia group is a good one, and the film does a good job of showing what anesthesiologists do. However, Moore just does not have enough depth in this film. The film really could have been better. It is a very good idea though, and I would recommend this film to anyone.

I really like this movie. It's very unusual for a German film to be based on a novel, but it's very well done. It is a bit long and at times the script drags a bit. But the story is not so complicated and it is very well acted, especially by the two main actors. I really like the way the movie portrays a lot of the problems faced by people in a country with a lot of crime. It's a bit depressing, but I think that is what the movie wanted to achieve. The scene where she meets the mad doctor is also very good, and that's a very good way to show the connection between these two characters. I also like the way the film presents the way the people in the town react to the situation.

This is one of the best films I have ever seen. I don't think it's too often that a film is able to induce a full-on emotional response in me that I don't even know I have. The plot, in a nutshell, is this: a young man is found murdered in his apartment and police are unable to find the killer. The question then becomes: is it him? The film has a great sense of place and atmosphere, and is very well shot. The direction is quite good, and the performances are quite good, especially by Jack Nicholson, who always manages to give the most understated and subtle performances, and yet never comes across as an actor who is out of place. I'm not usually a big fan of Ryan O'Neal, but he does a good job here, and is a lot more believable than I would have thought. The film is not without its flaws. The plot has a few holes in it, but they don't seem too big to me. The pacing is a little slow, but I think that was the only real flaw of the film. The acting, while not amazing, is good. The film is also very realistic. I didn't feel like I was watching a made-for-TV movie, or that I was watching something that was supposed to be a movie, because it was so realistic. The violence, while it is never graphic, is realistic. There are some very powerful scenes, and there is a lot of blood. Overall, I would definitely recommend this film.

Husband and wife, Peter and Julie, have been married for 14 years. After their divorce, they are trying to rebuild their lives. While working at the same hospital, Peter is diagnosed with ALS. He needs to use a machine that is used to control the flow of his blood. When the machine becomes useless, he becomes a quadriplegic. Julie gets her own machine, which is used to control blood flow. While both are trying to maintain a happy marriage, they come to the realization that they are going to have to take a new approach to their marriage. When I first saw this film, I thought it was a very interesting and well made film. However, after watching it several times, I found it to be very overrated. The acting was very good, but the script was very weak. It was predictable and I found myself wondering why the two couples would stay together. They were not good characters and I found the dialogue to be very cheesy. The acting was not that great either. The writing was also over the top. The ending was also very cheesy and I found it very hard to believe that the husband would be happy with his wife. Overall, I found this to be an overrated film. It is a good movie for those who like romance, but it is not a good film for those who want to see a good film. My rating: * out of *. 90 minutes. No sexual content. R for violence.

This is a strong, detailed, and very well directed drama. It is worth watching.

The cinematography, the score, and the overall style of the movie is reminiscent of "The Crying Game", "The Godfather", and "Casablanca", all of which were great movies. I don't want to give away too much of the story, but I will say that the movie is very well-acted. The characters are all believable, and I believe that the actors are able to capture the emotions of their characters. The story is well-paced, and the movie keeps you guessing about what is going to happen next. It is not very long, but the movie is really engaging. I enjoyed it very much, and would recommend it to anyone.

When I first saw this movie in theater, I was taken aback. I had never heard of it, but I was so enthralled by the story that I just had to see it. I have seen this movie more than ten times and I still get teary-eyed every time. The acting is so-so, but the story is so-so, and the ending so-so. It's a sad movie, but it's a good one. I highly recommend it.

This is a nice little film that gives you an insight into the many facets of sex. Although it is a film with a high budget, the actors are good, the photography is excellent, and the script is great. The movie is a little slow in parts but it's worth seeing.

I don't really understand why some people like this movie so much. I think it's the whole whole thing of seeing "what happens when a person is shot by police" - it's all very well and interesting but it's really not that interesting and the director didn't do anything special. It's a very bad movie about a very bad time in the history of the USA. I guess that's what I'm saying but I'm not sure. I'm not a big fan of Sean Penn but he's not bad in this movie, not a good movie at all. I would say it's a good movie, but I'm not sure it's good.

What a great movie! The music is really good and I really loved the scenes of the London riots. I just think the story is a bit stretched and could have used more work. But it was a great movie. The only thing I didn't like was that it was a bit long, but I think it was necessary to show what happened in the movie. The only thing I didn't like was that the narrator didn't say much, but the movie is a long one. I recommend it to anyone who likes a good movie. It is a shame that this movie didn't get an Oscar for best picture, but I think it was a great movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

This is one of those movies that has been passed over by the masses. This is because of the extremely high IMDb rating. I mean, this is the type of movie that could have been made for a fraction of the money, and it would have been a great movie. So I say, pay the full price, and get yourself a real movie. This movie is more about the characters than the plot, and that's what makes it so great. It's about relationships, and it's about how someone can get stuck with someone, even though they are a complete stranger. The acting in this movie is very good, especially the two leads, and the supporting cast. But the movie is also about how people can be so close, and how their lives are very different, and the idea that you can't find your true self when you are in that relationship, and how that can cause all sorts of problems. In a nutshell, it's a great movie, but I have to say, the movie is just too long. It's like a few hours, but I think they could have cut out a few scenes, and made the movie a little shorter. But I think this movie is definitely worth watching. I think people will enjoy it, and the acting is great. I give it a 7 out of 10.

This is a movie about an elderly man named Moses and his young son and wife. Moses is a long time man who has seen too many lives in his lifetime and knows that life has many endings. He is a man who is a survivor. He is a man who has seen his life's "normal" end, but does not like to think of it as "normal". He is not used to being a man and does not know how to deal with the idea of dying. His son has grown up in the care of his Aunt Sarah and is looking forward to the day he is old enough to take his own life. The story goes back and forth between these two characters and their interactions. The story takes place over several years and does not end with a happy ending. This is a movie about a man who has lived a life of not being able to express himself and yet is still able to express himself. The movie deals with the end of a relationship and the need to know the person you love. The acting is very good. The plot is simple but does not lack substance. The director and writer did a wonderful job of conveying the message through the dialogue. The music is not too good but does not distract from the story. Overall, this is a movie that will leave you wondering about life and love. It is not a movie that will leave you with a message, but will leave you wondering about life and love.

Not a lot of people seem to be very interested in this movie, but if you're looking for something that isn't exactly what you're expecting, then this movie is for you. It's not really that interesting, but it's more of a drama than a thriller, with a couple of very good performances, a few good scenes and a few nice twists. For me, the story is predictable, but that doesn't matter because the characters are well-played. What really sells the movie is the chemistry between the main characters, which is very well done. The acting is very good, even though some of the characters were a little bit over-the-top. The story is a little bit slow, but the acting is good, so it's not that bad. This is a very underrated movie, and I would recommend it to anyone who has a chance to see it.

I've seen this movie at least 5 times, and I can't get enough of it. It is a very beautiful movie. There are many things I like about this movie. The beginning is slow, but then the movie takes a very beautiful turn. The movie starts out with a flashback, and the flashback is very interesting. The movie then continues on with a character who is in a mental institution, and then the movie takes a very beautiful turn, and the movie continues to be very emotional. This movie is very emotional, but the movie is not for everyone. It is very hard to watch the movie if you are sensitive to the concept of mental illness, but it is a movie that is worth seeing. It is also very romantic, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes a romantic movie. It is very worth seeing, and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a romantic movie. It is also very beautiful. The ending is very beautiful. It is a very beautiful movie, and it is very worth seeing.

The movie was pretty good. It was just a little slow, but for the most part, it was entertaining. The movie had a good plot, and the acting was good. The thing that I really enjoyed about the movie was the fact that it was made by an Italian director. He made a movie that was entertaining, and had a decent plot. I recommend this movie to anyone who is into crime and mystery movies. If you like this movie, I suggest you to check out "The Passion of the Christ".

Well. I've seen this movie a couple of times and I have to say that I really don't like it as much as I used to. The beginning is very good. The story is really good and the cast is really good. But then you realize that there is no point. The story is just too simple and not well developed. The characters are so shallow that they don't matter at all. There is no point to the story. The movie could have been great. But then the plot of the movie is just too shallow. I would have preferred a movie with a better story. And also a better cast. So, I would recommend you to watch this movie a couple of times and you will be able to understand it better. But you will feel sorry for yourself because you have to watch it a couple of times to be able to understand it. In the end, you will have a better movie. I do not like this movie but I still recommend it to people who are really interested in cinema. But don't watch it as a movie but as a good and interesting movie.

My favorite aspect of the movie is the way the director, William Friedkin, has worked with the actors. In order to create a character that's believable, the actor must be able to play it. Friedkin has done a wonderful job with these two. The performance of Ed Harris is absolutely fantastic, as well as that of Angela Bettis. This is a movie that you won't forget. Highly recommended. 10/10

This is a film I haven't seen since the late 80s and early 90s. It was one of the few films that I had to actually watch again and again because it was just so enjoyable. I remember it was a part of the back-to-school season when I was in high school and I couldn't get it out of my head. It was a time when I didn't really know anything about women or the sex industry but I was fascinated by it and thought it was fascinating. It was a strange time in my life, a time when I was in my early teens and I was watching it and really enjoying it. It had a really good feel to it and it really was a time when I really was "on" with everything that was going on. It was at that time that I actually thought that porn was "good" and that it was OK to be in it. It was really exciting to watch and I was watching it on a very large screen. I had a bunch of friends over to watch it and they all said it was very interesting and "awesome" but one of them told me that it was a bit violent. I had to say that I don't think it was very violent at all, it was just the way it was shot and edited that made it so exciting. It was really just an enjoyable time in my life when I had no idea what it was or what it was all about and it was just fun to watch. I still watch it now and it is just as good as it was then. It was one of the first films I really got into the sex industry and it was very interesting at the time and I think that it is still relevant and is still a very relevant time. It really was a great time in my life.

A bit of a "mother-son" movie, this is a gritty and sometimes downright depressing look at the problems of a criminalized youth. It's not a happy film, but it does get a little depressing and I think that's what the director was going for. It's a story about a kid who has been raised in a foster home, so he doesn't know how to deal with the world, or with his own identity. It's also a story about a kid who is not so sure of himself. And, there's a lot of crime in the movie, a lot of drug dealing. And there's a lot of police corruption. But it's not just about the crimes, but the problems in the foster home and the police, the family, and the school. It's about being different, feeling different, and a lot of feeling. It's a movie you have to watch and think about.

This movie was very good. It was funny, but not just because it had a great cast. It was well acted, and the story was very well done. I really enjoyed the movie, and if you like mysteries, you should definitely see it. I liked it, but I don't think it's perfect. I think the movie had a few problems. For example, the movie has a few things that I found odd, like how the teacher just disappeared without explanation, and the teacher says that he got a bad call from the principal. The other thing that I found odd was the reason the teacher disappeared, he just disappeared without explanation, and then he came back the next day. I know that this was a mystery, but there should have been a little more explanation of what happened. Overall, this movie was very good, and it was worth watching. I recommend it to anyone who likes mystery or crime movies.

It's easy to fall into the trap of expecting too much of an indie film. But this one is worth the wait. It's a great story of a young man who is forced to leave his home after a drug deal gone bad, and goes on to live with his uncle and aunt in a small town. As the story progresses we see the loss of innocence and the beginnings of the changes that occur. The film is a little slow in the beginning, but once the action starts, it's a blast. It's a simple tale, but it has a good message about the war on drugs and the problems that come with it. The acting is good. I'm not a huge fan of Anne Hathaway, but I did like her in this. She was believable and very strong. I thought that she handled the role of the drug dealer very well. She was convincing and put her all into her role. She deserved an Oscar nomination for her performance. Her older sister is also very good, and she also had a good performance. The story is very well written, and it keeps you interested. It's a very simple film, but it's well worth the time to watch. I highly recommend it.

I am very surprised that this film did not receive more attention from the critics. I think it is a very good film that is easily one of the best I have seen this year. The characters are very realistic and the acting is excellent. I do not think that the director was trying to be a "Thriller" director. This film is more of a "docu-drama" that is well-done. I was surprised that this film did not receive a lot of attention from the critics, but I am glad that I did not watch the critics' comments on this film. The film is definitely worth watching. I give it a 9/10.

This is a really cool movie, not for everyone, but definitely for those who appreciate a great film. I didn't know what to expect going into this film, I've seen some really good films, and this one is definitely in that category. The film has some really great things going for it, and there are definitely a lot of funny moments in the film, but also some really sad moments. The acting is also pretty good, and some of the characters are really well written. The story is also pretty good, but the ending is a little bit predictable. All in all, I'd definitely recommend this film to anyone who is into independent films or just movies that are really well written and directed. It's definitely one of the better films I've seen in a while.

I had a lot of fun watching this movie. I have seen it twice and it gets better with each viewing. It's not an outstanding movie but it has its moments. My favorite scene is when they show the accident and the guy with the red eye wakes up in the hospital. I don't know how I missed this scene in the movie but I have it on tape and I watched it again today. It is a great scene that shows the trauma of the accident and the victim's pain and how much they are affected. The movie is not perfect but it is very well done. The main character is very believable and the acting is very good. If you like a good thriller, you will like this movie. I give it a 7 out of 10.

I went into the theater with some expectations for this movie. I thought it would be a typical Hollywood movie with typical Hollywood actors. But, I was pleasantly surprised. The story was original and the actors did a great job. The characters were not stereotypical, and I felt that they lived in the real world. The movie was actually very interesting. It was a good movie, but it could have been a lot better. The movie was in 3-D, which I didn't like. The 3-D made the movie look like it was in 3-D. It was distracting and annoying. I would recommend it to anyone who is into movies about the social issues of today.

Anesthesia is the story of a man, who, by the grace of God, is able to end his life by killing himself. By the end of the film, I wasn't sure whether he was actually doing it or was merely pretending. The film is a bit slow moving at times, but I found it to be an intriguing and thought provoking film. Overall, it is an intriguing film and deserves a watch.

It's hard to know where to start in terms of reviewing this movie. I went into the theater expecting a well-made movie about the power of imagination and the personal journey of a young woman. I was very pleasantly surprised. This movie was truly a beautiful and touching story about a young woman who came to terms with the loss of her mother. Her father was a disabled man who lived alone in a dilapidated house in a remote area of Virginia. She was raised by her mother's best friend and her father was in a wheelchair. Her mother never did get along with her father and she felt that she was not being cared for and that her mother was neglecting her. The movie follows the life of her mother, as she tries to work through her loss of her husband and her daughter's death. The story begins with her trying to explain to her daughter what her mother did and how her mother did it. The movie is very moving and the ending was so sad. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good movie.

I had a hard time finding this movie on video, I was looking for a film I could watch with my son, but couldn't find anything. Then I came across this movie and decided to give it a shot. I am not a huge fan of Cary Grant, I find him to be a little over the top in his acting. This movie however is a far cry from his more serious roles, and he has a lot of fun in this movie. This movie is very suspenseful and the last half hour or so is a real roller coaster. I give this movie a 9 out of 10.
