the best part of the otherwise abysmal "Trapped Ashes"
10 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Leo (the usually absurdly great John Saxon) gets to tell of him and his friend, Stanley. With parallels to Stanley Kubrick's early career (not the supernatural tinge to it obviously) this was the most interesting of the quintet of stories that comprised the film "Trapped Ashes". But it's a bit on the dry side and doesn't really fit in with the other four stories in that film in the least. Also since this tale can be seen apart from that film in other places, I'd recommend that rather than sitting through that whole film merely for this one part simply because "Trapped Ashes" on a whole was pretty abysmal.

My Grade: C-
