A movie about a relationship...that's worse than yours. Seth (Stewart), a sitcom writer-producer, meets Chelsea (Wilson), an interior decorator, at his best friend's (Bellamy) wedding. He's immediately sexually attracted to her while she's instantly attracted to his single-ness. They both ditch their wedding dates and start their own date that same night. The two become a couple, appearing very happy until after a couple of years of postponing a marriage proposal. When Chelsea realizes that Seth wants to remain single and together, she becomes quite bitter. In the next hour of the movie, the two engage in behavior that makes the War of the Roses look like child's play.
Seth Winnick has it all: a successful career in television, good friends, and a passionate relationship with beautiful Chelsea, but he has no intention to marry her. Outraged, the obsessive Chelsea retaliates by filing a palimony lawsuit against him. While waiting for their court date, Chelsea torments Seth as they continue to share an apartment. .

Chris L (us) wrote: While many reviews seem to focus on the tangental aspects of this film - journalism, the real life Guerin, war on drugs - this film is much more than this. For those bemoaning the lack of real information, then they need to watch the DVD extras where the real life Guerin is interviewed, and clips from news footage of the time can be seen. These items reaffirm that director and producer followed closely the true story. From a cinematic aspect I was impressed that not one set was used in this film - all the shots are true location shots, even those inside houses. From an acting standpoint, Blanchett proves that as the only non-Irish actor in the film, she can fully immerse herself into any role and deliver. From a story standpoint, any warm blooded viewer will realize that while Guerin's story is not unique, it is the actions and committment of journalists like her that bring us the real stories of the day - in fact, watching stories from imbedded reporters in Iraq it is easy to forget that their lives are on the line - this films reminds us vividly that there are those who do not want us to read these stories, and are willing to kill journalists to keep the silence. This is not a hollywood action film, but more of a photo-journalistic essay showing us what can go on behind the story we read in the Sunday paper.

Dylan C (ag) wrote: indie horror film could have been a straight-out scarefest if it weren't for a third act that trades all the suspense and tension created for a monstrous deer. We're introduced to a family of three: George (Jake Weber), Kim (Patricia Clarkson), and their young boy Miles (Erik Per Sullivan), who are spending the winter weekend at a cabin in the woods. On their way there they hit a deer and run into an unstable hunter. The next day, they go into the town and Miles is given a small wooden figure, which he's told is a Wendigo, a Native American spirit with an insatiable hunger. The boy has nightmares about the unstable hunter and Wendigo, which are the film's highlight. These sequences are grade-A horror, perfectly horrifying and scary. Unfortunately in the film's third act, director Larry Fessenden brings out the Wendigo, which is much less scary than what we imagine it to be. He also ends the film without answering any of our questions about the outcome of some of the characters or the reason why the Wendigo is in the film. Fessenden could have either left the Wendigo off screen completely, leaving us more unsettled and creeped out, or he could have shown us the Wendigo and advanced the plot by explaining it's purpose in the film. As it is, the film feels like it's about a family dealing with an unhappy hunter; the Wendigo is unnecessary and when we're introduced to this devilishly interesting creature and then given nothing more than a warning about it, we feel cheated. Regardless, I recommend Wendigo because it contains some of the scariest scenes I've ever seen in a movie. The soundtrack is perfectly seductive and mysterious and the acting is top-notch. The cinematographer Terry Stacey should also be complemented on his beautiful depiction of the snowy woods. This film reminded me of The Shining, in it's setting, and The Blair Witch Project, for it's realistic "there's something in the woods" feel. Wendigo is one the scariest horror films in recent memory, it' on a shame it's third act drags it down from being a masterpiece.
