Boy, It's been a while since I saw a movie that depressing (and that's counting the happy ending). Probably not since film class and either "new german cinema" or early Italian Neo-Realism.

That Said

It's a very good movie. Halle Berry will undoubtably get an Oscar nomination for playing the wife of a death row inmate and mother of a fat kid. Billy Bob now seems to be making a habit of playing these stoic loner types (see The Man Who Wasn't There).

And the vaunted sex scene? It's all that. And a bag of chips.

Rating: 9/10

I heard it was missing a minute and you had to fly to Europia to see it. What'd you hear?

I've not heard that about this movie.

I can tell you that in "Storytelling," the new movie by Todd Solonz had big problems with the MPAA.

Instead of cutting the sex scene between Selma Blair and Robert Wisdom, Solonz inserted a big red block over the "naughty bits." This was to keep the movie an R, instead of NC-17.

For more info, read Ebert's Answer Man column in today's Sun-Times (and also I believe syndicated around the country).

Here you go...

"I had to cut a minute to get the rating. I tried to convince them the scene was vital. It seems you can't have too much thrusting. We cut some out," Forster explained.

Well, having seen the scene in question, I wonder how provacative the missing footage must have been. :>

Cripes. Did you see what was on MTV right before Heat tonight? And they're complaining about thrusting in an R-rated movie?

I thought Todd was doing a good job of being a goofball in the house so that if he made it to the end, he'd get the fans vote. They had to pull Jim Norton because of scheduling problems. He had committed to something else.
