"Normal Life"

Normal Life (1996) is a story of a man's obsession with a mentally unstable woman. It is a crime drama. It is a film directed by none other than John McNaughton, and then released on cable TV. It is supposedly based on an actual crime spree. Luke Perry is a cop, but a misfit, who loves books, and doesn't fit in with his fellow officers. He watches as Ashley Judd breaks up with a boyfriend in a bar, then shatters a glass and cuts her hand. Luke comes to her rescue, and resolves to be her savior. She definitely needs one. Although beautiful and bright, she is frigid, self destructive, and a heavy user of both drugs and booze. After they marry, Perry finds out that she is also addicted to maxing out credit cards, doesn't cook or clean, is suicidal, and craves excitement. When he loses his job at the cop shop, he turns to bank robbing, and discovers he is very good at it.

Judd accidently sees him doing it, and demands to rob banks with him. They find themselves with enough money to live happily ever after, but she is now addicted to the thrill, and the unhappy ending becomes inevitable. Judd is wearing only a pair of panties through much of the film, and gives many views of her breasts in good light. The film opens with their capture, and is a flashback to the two years leading up to it. It is a fascinating study in her manic depressive self destructive behavior and his obsession with her. This is a C+.

    First, I'm not interested in fakes, and second, I can assure you this is NOT Jennifer Garner. Having said all that, let me add that I still think this zipped .wmv is pretty cool.

I suppose I have been in about 70 countries, and if I had to rank all the countries I have visited based upon the beauty of the women, Venezuela would be in the top five, maybe the top three.

Jay and Silent Bob have about as much screen time as they had in Clerks. This is Dante and Randal's flick all the way."

    • The international trailer for Off the Map
      • "Across the ancient high desert landscape of northern New Mexico, an extraordinary family embarks on a lyrical journey of self-discovery that reveals unexpected moments of grace and the unpredictable but enduring nature of love. In Campbell Scott's 'Off the Map,' the poetry of a time and a place marked by simplicity comes into full bloom.

        It's 1974 and the harshly beautiful wilds of Taos are home to 11-year-old Bo Groden (Valentina de Angelis) and her free-thinking family. While constantly yearning for escape from her sparse environment, Bo passes the time with flair and imagination. She's a crack shot with a rifle and a bow and arrow, an artful plunderer of wallets and briefcases, and the compelling mistress of ceremonies for a moonlit three-ring circus of her own invention. Bo's home is an entrancing, challenging place that she will one day transcend to become the woman she was destined to be.

        Arlene (Joan Allen), Bo's warm, earthy, and eccentric mother, raises most of the family's food in her vegetable garden -- which she prefers to tend in the nude. Meanwhile, Bo's father, Charley (Sam Elliott), the embodiment of Old West masculinity, is losing the battle with his inner demons.

        When William Gibbs (Jim True-Frost) arrives, a hapless IRS agent with demons of his own, he soon proves to be a catalyst in the lives of the family during this watershed summer. Embraced by the Grodens' idyllic, peculiar world, Gibbs eventually abandons an investigation into the Grodens' tax history and realizes he has fallen in love with both the place and its people.

        In a surge of creative energy, Gibbs dips a brush in paint and pours his feelings out on canvas, discovering a long hidden talent for artistic expression. The Grodens, too, make their own discoveries over the course of this memorable season -- the mysteries of love and loss, the power of family unity, and the eternal truth that in New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment, anything is possible."

    • The yellow asterisks indicate that I wrote the review, and am deluded into thinking it includes humor.
    • If there is a white asterisk, it means that there isn't any significant humor, but I inexplicably determined there might be something else of interest.
