There has to be a certain detachment when it comes to slicing open a human body. After all, it looks just like your own body and once you cut into the skin, you get to the inner mechanics and it can either be fascinating or repulsive. The art of pathology requires that emotional detachment while at the same time can remain fascinating as one tries to determine the cause of death.
While a fascinating premise for a character study, 20th-Century Fox’s Pathology used it more as a backdrop for a thriller that failed to thrill. The movie opened last spring to middling reviews and was immediately rejected by the movie going audience, vanishing after 21 days and earning a meager $109,045 at the box office.The movie, starring Milo Ventimiglia, was released on DVD this past week by 20th and it can be a diverting experience. Unless, of course, you like characterization. »

With such variety this week, we could be tempted to go nuts and combine them into one super movie. Osama Bin Laden would have 88 minutes to paint an anamorphic picture that disproved Darwinism while riding the winner of the Kentucky Derby through ancient China with his gay lover who is also an Oscar nominated composer moonlighting as a zombie stripper...we smell a Golden Globe!
Utilizing the painting technique of anamorphosis, whereby the nature of an image changes depending on the viewer's vantage point, filmmaker Henry Miller marks his directorial debut with this intricate and cerebral thriller that reads like "Saw" by way of "The Da Vinci Code." Willem Dafoe stars as the dogged but haunted Detective Aubray, on the trail of carefully placed clues and elaborate puzzles, trying to catch a serial killer whose crimes bare a striking resemblance to an old »
