Kubrick does Stephan
King. Rated #107 in the IMDB top 250, and
considered by many to be a masterpiece of horror,
I find this to be Stanley's worst effort. Yes,
the photography and lighting is pure Kubrick
genius, and Nicholson goes mad very convincingly,
but Duvall as his wife is not even a little bit
endearing, the pace is a lot like watching grass
grow, and the film is about twice as long as the
plot line. The exposure is a ghost (Lia Beldam)
that kisses Nicholson then turns into a
decomposing old woman.
Nicholson, his wife and young son become
off-season caretakers for a snow-bound hotel.
Resident ghosts soon drive Jack insane.

Dark Harbor is dark indeed, but not very good.
I bickering couple on their way to their private
island for the weekend pick up an odd tramp. The
three of them plot against each other. There is
some decent scenery, lots of talking, and very
little acting. This is the only exposure ever
from Polly Walker. See image one for a side view
of most of her breast. She is still very active,
so hopefully she will elect to show us more.
The ending of the film is a little bit of a
surprise, but did not take my breath away.
Frankly, there was not a single character to like
and the film was way too talky. I figured if
anyone died, it would likely make the world a

|Comments and movie review by
Caps from "Simpatico". There is no
nudity but Kimberly Williams looks beautiful.
This is a story of bribery, blackmail and the
fixing of horse races. There are two threads
running in parallel. In the current version the
characters are played by Jeff Bridges (Liam),
Nick Nolte (Vinny) and Sharon Stone (Rosie).
Rosie is married to Liam who is a successful
businessman while Vinny is a down and out.
However he has the photographs and contacts Liam.
While Liam searches for the photographs, Vinny
contacts Rosie and asks her to leave with him.
She refuses and ends up shooting the horse while
Liam and Vinny make up or at least have had
enough of the world.
The second story
introduces us to the background of the
relationship between the three. Kimberly Williams
is alluring as the young Rosie. They win large
sums by swapping a good horse for a nag that has
long odds. When the Race Commissioner Sims
(Albert Finney) cottons on to the plot they first
attempt to bribe him. When that fails he is
seduced by Rosie and secretly photographed by
Vinny. The photographs are used to blackmail
Sims. However Rosie is affected by having to
humiliate herself and clearly holds a grudge
against Vinny who came up with the idea. Her
subsequent behaviour creates the situation
changes the lives of Vinny and Liam and
eventually her own.
In the final race the trio make another large
winning and call it a day but Rosie leaves with
Liam leaving Vinny, who had just proposed to her,
behind. Rosie also reports the fixing to the
papers which leads to the humiliation of Sims.
I enjoyed this movie and although the presence
of two storylines requires concentration it is
well acted and scripted.
There was no nudity in this movie. There is a
solitary sex scene between Williams and Finney. I
guess this was a really "essential to the
plot sex scene" I have included caps from
the sex scene and some facial caps as well of
Kimberly Williams who as usual looks beautiful
and much younger than she is.
