SWAMP DEVIL is the story of young Melanie Blaime (played by Cindy Sampson) and her father Howard (portrayed by the venerable Bruce Dern). After a long estrangement from her father for reasons not entirely clear, Melanie returns to her childhood home of Gibbington, Vermont to confront the realization that her father is wanted for murder. As Melanie digs a little more deeply into the stories of the past, she uncovers a tale wound about the town like Spanish moss, that is composed of secrets and lies, murder and revenge.

Ben W (mx) wrote: [b]Me and You and Everyone We Know[/b] - One of the better films of 2005 so far, this small yet meaningful film follows strange and different tangents all revolving around shoesalesman Richard Swersey. Through flowing dialogue, a wonderful visual style, and a great soundtrack, [i]Me and You and Everyone We Know[/i] allows us to see into the complacency of our lives and our unwillingness to change it, but with a certain drive, it can be accomplished. A feel-good quirky film that doesn't feel forced, this is definitely a movie for everyone I know. [b]The Thin Red Line[/b] - This powerful anti-war film was unjustly overshadowed by the more action-based [i]Saving Private Ryan[/i] of the same time and war. However, the differences between the two are huge. [i]The Thin Red Line[/i] makes us feel greatly and deeply for our soldiers caught up in a war and lost in heart. It's as though none can quite comprehend why this great evil called war is so "necessary," for aren't we all humans, are we not all innately good? What causes this evil? A slow and moving film, this should not be missed. [b]Decasia: The State of Decay[/b] - Quite possibly one of the most amazing films I've ever seen. In the opening twenty minutes or so, I saw little other than some shockingly beautiful yet utterly dry decayed film, and then comes up a storm. The circular motion of what many of the clips had clued me in that this film was so much more than what I had initially thought, so I turned on my brain and continued to watch in a trance-like state. This film ultimately speaks of the circular motion of creation and decay---from creation only comes decay and destruction, and from destruction comes creation---all without uttering a single word. A masterpiece, plain and simple. [b]Lady Snowblood[/b] - Stylish and cool, I think this movie was a bit too much for me. It's constant use of handheld cameras bothered me and its dull cinematography bored me, but that qualm aside, this is a really fun samurai flick. Bloody and ultra-violent, a Kill Bill fan wouldn't be lost. [b]28 Days Later[/b] - This film instantelly captivated me. The use of a DV camera makes for a shocking sense of realism and its fast-paced visuals get the viewer's heart apounding. The acting is surprisingly good for a zombie movie (I know, not technically zombies) as it is coming from Cillian Murphy, one of the coolest actors around today. Then comes the soundtrack---the use of Godspeed You Black Emperor is thrilling and gives the film a whole new depth to it. A very entertaining and heart-pounding movie.

Dana D (au) wrote: Kiefer Sutherland, you are the most fantastic actor on the planet. Ever since I first saw this movie, I have been watching and re-watching scenes that gripped me and haven't let go yet. Despite the fact that this film reeks of low-budget from afar, and despite the fact that the flashbacks are beyond ridiculous and without purpose, this film bares such emotion, such loss, such depth. Viewers are forced to step into the mind of a homosexual man suffering from AIDS, forced to love and respect and honor him for his struggles, his heartache, and his transformation. Kiefer Sutherland creates a character that hurts on a level far from superficial, and the viewer constantly seeks to understand just why this man is the way he is. Why does the texture of his food concern him so much, and why does he treat his sister like garbage over the silliest things? But then he turns around and can be the most loving man on the planet. And in the end, I learned. I realized. And I felt for myself everything this man had lost. And I could love him for that.In the end, it was all Kiefer. Kyra Sedgwick was just there to facilitate Keifer's demonstration of every emotion humanity can experience. And, I know it's silly, but every time Kiefer called Kyra "darling", the tears came. It's amazing how one minute I feel hatred toward Kiefer's character for the manner in which he treats his own sister, and the next, I am feeling all warm and fuzzy inside at just how sweet he is. This is such a daring movie, and I love it.

Como sucede con la mayoria de historias cortas adaptadas al cine, se siente el alargamiento, pero "Impostor" logra mantener el ritmo y ofrecer unos giros sorpresivos. No es la gran pelicula pero entretiene de principio a fin.

Adam T (it) wrote: A technicolor update of The Philadelphia Story, it doesn't feel as sharp and snappy as the 1940 film but the three main players- Sinatra, Crosby, and the lovely Grace Kelly (in her final film role) have such a good time that it is certainly worth viewing.Louis Armstrong and his band provide the musical numbers including the memorable 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?'.
