Screen adapatation of Mozart's greatest opera. Don Giovanni, the infamous womanizer, makes one conquest after another until the ghost of Donna Anna's father, the Commendatore, (whom Giovanni killed) makes his appearance. He offers Giovanni one last chance to repent for his multitudinious improprieties. He will not change his ways So, he is sucked down into hell by evil spirits. High drama, hysterical comedy, magnificent music! (and unfortunately poor direction by film maker Joseph Losey. The final scene looks more like an industrial mishap than a supernatural event.)

It has so much spirit in the music of Alabama 1950.Danny Glover gives us a decent performance to move the story along, and works very well with Charles S. Dutton.I felt they could have come to a solution a bit sooner, and felt it had dragged in a couple of bits.Over all, I did enjoy the music.
jd c (jp) wrote: Excellent little crime thriller/mystery. An unknown hidden gem. Engaging performances, a tight solid script, and superb directing. For being shot on a shoestring budget this film certainly hits home. Forget "The Good Son" or "Joshua". Skeletons in the Closet crushes those films! "Treat Williams plays the father, raising his teenaged son (Jonathan Jackson) on the New Hampshire coast. The son is rebellious, like any teenager but almost dangerously so. Prone to keeping to himself and lashing out in a violent manner, when unsolved murders begin to turn up, Dad begins to suspect that his son may be involved." Don't expect any gore or any extreme violence. This film isn't about all of that. It focuses more on building suspenseful tension through the studies of creepy character development. It moves at a very slow pace but never falls flat, thanks to some wonderful acting and intriguing dialogue. This is the kind of film that will have you guessing till the very end. I highly recommend this movie.

After the box office explosions of The Blair Witch Project, The Sixth Sense and especially the Scream series, every idiot in Hollywood wanted to jump on the 'new-horror wave' bandwagon. After 'Scary Movie' poked all the holes in the horror genre, studios were left with horror movies that - all of a sudden - looked pretty damn stupid. When a serial killer begins slaughtering virgins at the "Cherry Falls" High School, the students run riot trying to have sex and protect themselves - in that order. As the terror mounts, as much as it does anyway, clues point to the obligatory terrible secret. The disappointment is in an ultimately anaemic feel. Cherry Falls sticks to the tried and true formula, bringing to mind words like adequate or functional. VERDICT: "Not So Hot" - [Negative Reaction] These films are truly terrible films. They are not the worst things ever made, but they are definitely awful and should not be seen by anyone. (Films that are rated 1.5 or 2 stars)
