The Cement Garden

After the death of her husband, the mother of Julie, Jack, Sue and Tom begins to suffer from a mysterious illness. Aware that she is going to have to go into hospital she opens a bank account for the children, so that they can be financially self-sufficient and will be able to avoid being taken into care by the authorities. Unfortunately she also dies and Julie and Jack (the older, teenage children) decide to hide her body in the basement so that they can have free reign of their household. Soon Tom has taken to dressing as a girl whilst Sue has become increasingly reticent, confiding only to her diary, meanwhile Jack and Julie sense an attraction developing for each other. However Julie's new beau, Derek, threatens to unearth the many dark secrets within this family as he becomes increasingly suspicious of Jack.

Merol Kim C (gb) wrote: Coldwater is now one of my favorite drama films. It is a satisfying take on a coming-of-age, young masculinity themed storyline that was just so darn effective that it had a chilling and lingering effect in the end. First of all, the critics are absolutely correct in saying that Coldwater is a film of great performances. And I must say that lead actor P.J. Boudousqu (As Brad Lunders) stole the show. He blew me away because his skill in acting is by far one of the best I've seen. Other notable performances include James C. Burns as the head of the reform facility and Nicholas Bateman as a troubled trustee. Likewise, as stellar as the acting is the film's cinematography. This made the film visually beautiful. What's more is that its execution is handled well, filling thrills scene after scene and emotions frame by frame. However, there were several times that the film made a "hit-and-miss" pattern in delivery and the drive to the climax became unsteady after its first hour. Still, its general impact to me is enough to contain the flaws behind bars. Overall, Coldwater is promising in spite of its blemishes and director Vincent Greshaw has pulled off one fascinating drama. 4/5 :-)

But you must know that this film was also based on the real sisters who were fed up with their irresponsible and alcoholic mother and her abusive boyfriend. So they plot to set free themselves from the messed up life as they think they deserve better.It was supposed to be a television movie, but later it saw a limited theatrical release and a mixed response from all quarters. I liked the film, for its strong content, but the weakness lies in the first half. The beginning was a very poor quality of presentation, the next half was the reason I favoured it where it erupts while the narration nearing the conclusion.Since no one knows the details about the real sisters, the characters were altered in the movie as the cast desired to attack few things to complete it. Both, Abigail Breslin and Georgie Henley were not bad, but it's hard to believe these child actors are all grown up. In a few years, they will be in the lead! Anyway, this film is worth a watch, especially true stories like this fascinates me. We could learn about our world and its society, what other people went through in their lives and the reason behind those stuffs.7/10

Tor M (gb) wrote: Well presented story of a very interesting dude. An incredible artist that's possibly at his best when doing simple, or kind of ugly work. Still he can make amazing stuff that's pretty, detailed and huge as well. As most documentaries it's interesting and fascinating, but not an amazing experience.I'm very glad i saw it - now I know the story of this great artist. Cool with small features by Saber and the Obey-guy as well.7 out of 10 tags.

Stefan R (es) wrote: Kinky, but somehow boring about it.

Madison S (kr) wrote: A typical gothic film: laudnam addictions, dark underworld, murder, science, and an underlying sexuality. The names of the characters are really sweet though (Dr. Bolton, Ressurection Joe, Black Ben, Scrivener Sam, etc.) A beautiful Criterion transfer.

Jen H (ag) wrote: The story is a bit meaningless and under-developed--more apt on a Saturday-morning serial. I probably could be a bit more critical of how Stallone played Rocky. He comes across as mentally impaired for large chunks of the film, when he talks about fear, I wasn't sure if that was just crazy talk, or he was being serious. For all the restraint, character growth and maturity, the last fight though is a bit dishonest to the rest of the movie.For all its fault, it is undeniably Rocky though, and the spirit of Rocky is still evident throughout the film. I feel it should be credited for attempting to do something unique with the Rocky mythos
