Does salesman's gasless engine run on snake oil?
- Based on Richard Price's bestselling novel, which opens as a bruised and
bloodied white woman named Brenda Martin stumbles into a Dempsey, New Jersey,
emergency room, claiming that a black man stole her car with her four-year-old
son in the backseat. Veteran detective Lorenzo Council is assigned to
investigate the case, and despite reservations about Brenda's story, he
launches an all-out search for the abducted boy. Jesse Haus, an ambitious
young reporter for the local newspaper, also suspects that Brenda is hiding
something, and she befriends the grief-stricken mother in an attempt to break
the biggest story of her career. But as the search for the alleged carjacker
intensifies, smoldering racial tensions between the predominantly black city
of Dempsey and its mostly white neighbor, Gannon, threaten to explode.

No Inhibitions (2002)
This is yet another soft-core made by hard-core performers, and with a
hard-core plot. This time, April Hannah finds an ancient Indian fetish while
she's raking in her garden. It has an odd magical effect, at least on blondes.
It makes them immediately take off their clothes, then have sex with
themselves, or, better yet, anyone nearby. She fondles first the talisman,
then herself while fantasizing about sex with Dawn Arellano. She contacts her
old anthropology professor on the net, and he identifies it as one of four
identical such fetishes that he knows about. She then watches neighbor Alana
Evans fondle it, and have sex with the pool cleaner. She again contacts the
professor, and he relates stories of the other women who have found one,
including Lola, Lexi, Nina Ferrari and Roxanne Hall.
No Inhibitions begins with a 12 minute sequence with no dialogue at all.
All dialogue occurs in inside locations, which is much easier than looping or
recording live outdoor sound. The sex scenes are tepid, but the nudity is shot
in clear light, and is comprehensive. Tonight, we have April Hannah, Dawn
Arellano and Alana Evans.
This one has also escaped the attention of IMDb. It contains some lovely
women, and doesn't have much in the way of a story or dialogue to distract
you. In fact, it might be best watched without sound. This is a C-, barely,
assuming a genre of soft-core sex film.
Yesterday's clips/caps come from Manderlay (2005).
Manderlay, written and directed by Lars Von Trier, is a surprising film, not
in the least by its form. It is more a filmed stage play than a movie. All the
action takes place in a hangar where the spectators can see the whole stage or
parts of it, depending on what is lit, just like in a theater. That and the
length of the feature, more than two hours, mean that the interest of the viewer
must be grasped by a remarkable story told in captivating dialogues.
This kind of film isn't really my cup of tea, but when the aforementioned
positives are present, as in Inserts, then I have no trouble at all with it.
That is also the case with Manderlay, even more so than in Inserts, because the
theme of the movie is much more important and interesting. It deals with racism
and social structures between blacks and whites in the US in the 1930's. Let me
elucidate a little bit without giving too much away.
Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), her dad and their mob leave Dogville and move to
Manderlay, a cotton plantation in Alabama where slavery still seems to exist.
Grace is disgusted by this and liberates the slaves by force. Seeing that they
don't leave the plantation but remain passive, she takes things into her own
hands and becomes the leader of the plantation, introduces new ways of
decision-making but has no consideration for the structures that were in place
before her arrival.
The question that Grace never asks herself is why the black people remain
passive and continue to behave like slaves. She assumes they don't know any
better and feels obliged to guide them, as if she were a patronizing politically
correct person from the present day. The question I asked myself as a spectator
was whether or not Lars Von Trier was going to keep portraying black people as
unmotivated, ill-informed and passive during the entire movie, the way racists
see them, or would he offer some kind of catharsis or denouement that reversed
the aforementionned perception. Will white Grace realize that she is a slave as
well, a slave of whitey's system at that? Watch the movie and you'll know.
As for the actors, they were all excellent, especially Bryce Dallas Howard,
the only lead role in this film. This young actress encompasses a whole palette
of emotions and expressions, ranging from gentle and soft-spoken to tough and
tenacious. This movie was for her a great opportunity to show off her talent, so
I would be surprised if the future weren't bright for her.
I have already established that the strong points of this film are the
weighty themes and the elaboration of those themes through intelligent and
interesting dialogue. I cannot however rest silently about its weak point,
namely the technical part. In some parts this excellent movie is hampered by
color shifts for no reason within the same scene, depending on which takes were
used in the final edit. Some scenes are out of focus. I know that Von Trier
doesn't care much about such things, but if he did, his film would only have
been even better. Notwithstanding the technical flaws, this film remains an
excellent piece of work that rates a solid B on the Scoopy scale.
Nudity report: Bryce Dallas Howard is completely naked in one scene that even
includes an open crotch shot. Several black men are naked as well showing mostly
buns, but occasionally a penis is briefly visible.
So much for nostalgia for yesterday.
Here are today's clips:
Dann reports on Doom:
Hollywood has had varying degrees of success
turning video games into movies. With 2005's Doom, the results were
mediocre. The biggest problem was that this action/thriller didn't have
... or thrills.
In 2025, Marines are sent to a laboratory on Mars to see what went
wrong. They discover that an experiment had caused people to become
infected with a virus that turned them into inhuman beasts. They must do
everything possible, "with extreme prejudice", to keep the beasts from
returning to, and infecting, earth.
Some great special effects, ass-kicking action sequences, and cool
looking creatures, but far too much time was wasted with the Marines
looking for these critters, and not enough time was spent actually
fighting them. Oh yes, and it had a nude scene, very brief, in the unrated
version. Still, I found it disappointing, especially compared to other
games-to-movies like the two Resident Evil flicks, which I liked

Last night's Grammy Awards opened with Madonna performing with the cartoon
group The Gorillaz, but the most surreal moment came during the tribute to Sly
Stone, who gave up performing in 1987 after battling drug problems because, his
brother said, "He wanted to be normal." He reemerged playing "I Want To Take
You Higher," dressed in a shiny silver
and purple robe and a huge blond Mohawk.
* For the Grammys, that IS normal.
* It was surreal because he was dressed much too conservatively for the Grammys.
* His fashion designer must be battling drug problems.
* The show opened with a creepy, vaguely human-looking cartoon figure that
never ages, and then the Gorillaz came out and joined Madonna.
