Sequel to Dracula 2000. Father Uffizi [Jason Scott Lee] hunts vampires. He travels the world to behead them with his bullwhip, but his ultimate goal is to find the first vampire, Dracula (revealed as Judas Iscariot in Dracula 2000), absolve Dracula's sins against Jesus, set his soul free, and end his unholy existence. So, when Dracula's charred body turns up in the New Orleans morgue, Uffizi heads there. Medical students, Liz Blaine [Diane Neal] and Luke [Jason London] are charged with autopsying the body. When they open the abdominal cavity, they find that the liver and other organs are white, suggesting to Luke that the person did not produce his own blood but got it elsewhere, i.e., a vampire.

It was equally erotic and emotional, while the spot on performances by Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci only add to the talent of the supporting cast, who come off as naturals. I enjoyed the underlying love stories and honesty portrayed in the adaptation of a real life couple who ran a "love ranch" in Reno, NV.

AJ F (gb) wrote: Sexy Beast is a master's course in dialogue. I watch this movie at least once a year or more just to study various scenes. Specifically, the scene where Don Logan (Ben Kingsley) is pressuring Gal (Ray Winstone) on the beach is one of my favorite tirades of all time. Don - "Talk to me,Gal. I'm here for you. I'm a good listener."BEATGal - "What can I say, Don? I've said it all. I'm retired."Don - "Shut up."A long abusive - yet poetic - stream of abuse follows.I wont write the entire scene line by line because it's full of swearing. But these small bit of dialogue alone is a good example This immediate switch up is a perfect example of the kind of psychological terrorism Don Logan deploys throughout damn near every moment he's on the screen. Both Kingsley and Winstone deliver amazing performances. So amazing the viewer believes Winstone's character is terrified of Kingsley despite a striking difference in physical size. This is something director, Jonathan Glazer, takes pains to occlude. For example, in the scene mentioned above, Kingsley stands on on a mound of sand so it looks like he towers over the other man. And it works, but only because Kingsley has such skill at inhabiting this character that Don Logan remains a ferocious presence throughout the film. I'll not add yet another synopsis of this movie to a site full of them. But I will say this: at it's heart, sexy beast is a love story hidden inside a gangster movie with 'the job' serving merely as the MacGuffin for a much deeper quest for both characters.Great flick for anyone to watch, but if you are a writer, this is a must-see film.

David H (ag) wrote: John Belushi's best "date movie," (well, probably his only date movie), especially if you grew up around Chicago in the late 70's and early 80's. Belushi portrays a Mike Royko type character (he was a hard-nosed journalist in Chicago at the time) that gets assigned a nature story so the mob doesn't whack him. Blair Brown is cute, and somehow it works. If you ever get roped into needing a romantic comedy, go for this one.

Amanda C (jp) wrote: Exquisite cinematography is the main reason to watch this film. It is truly gorgeous, with a fantastic colour palate and colour design. The film itself is fairly pedestrian, coming a little to close to overwrought melodrama, although it does stay clear of that for the most part. There is a distinct lack of conflict once Francis has converted, which turns the film towards a more meditative, zen feel, which while calming and overall enjoyable, makes Brother Sun, Sister Moon more fluff that substance.
