    A Civil Action


    1. Putting "Take Me to the River" over the end credits is pretty damn crass.
    2. Whatever happened to David Thornton? His role here is about as big (i.e. small) as usual, but he really kills it.

    The Smell of Us


    U.S. premiere, Film Comment Selects, Walter Reade Theater.

    More of the horrid same from Larry Clark, who would probably make snuff films if he could do so without having to serve hard time afterwards. This is, by a significant margin, his most disjointed, grotesque, repellent feature film to date. And, he claims (disturbingly, but unsurprisingly), his most personal.

    Utter, nonsensical trash. Bring a nose plug.
