Schneider earned an acting prize at the Tribeca Fim Festival for his irresistible portrayal of Otto Wall, an ordinary guy in his late 30s who spent entire decades of his life uncertain what he wanted, but now, as a husband and father, is pretty sure he’s figured it all
The drama, which premiered on the festival circuit under the less emotional and more unfocused title Think of Me, is based on Wizemann's childhood experiences with his single mother in Las Vegas.
As a child of a single mother myself, I was drawn to the relationship between Angela (Lauren Ambrose) and her eight-year-old daughter Sunny, played by newcomer and Texan Audrey P. Scott. The duo's interactions with each other involve relatively little dialogue, and when they are having a conversation it feels trite and one-sided, making it apparent
That’s because Wizemann’s film is remarkably observant in its exploration of the factors that led this single mother, Angela, to commit such desperate acts. She embodies the anxiety and rage of a working class that feels utterly abandoned by its own country. It’s difficult to be a nurturing parent when you’re living from paycheck to paycheck while struggling to keep your head above water in a society consistently at odds with your needs. Yet instead of transforming the tale into a political polemic,
Ernest Borgnine's final film, The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vincente Fernandez has been released on Blu-ray on the Indican video label. The following is my review of the film's recent theatrical release:
The independent production is a modestly-budgeted family comedy/drama that presents the legendary Oscar-winner with the kind of showcase role that actors in their nineties almost never have. Borgnine makes the most of it, too, giving a terrific and moving performance that earned him the Best Actor award at last year's Newport Film Festival. Written and produced by Elia Petridis, Fernandez centers on Rex Page (Borgnine), a cantankerous old coot given to griping about every aspect of life. He seems oblivious to the fact that he has an adoring wife (June Squibb), a devoted middle-aged daughter (Dale Dickey) and and a worshipful granddaughter (Audrey P. Scott). Rex is frustrated by his failure
Ernest Borgnine's final film, The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vincente Fernandez, opens theatrically with a one-week run at the Laemmle Encino Town Center Theater beginning today.

Retired radio DJ, Rex Page (Ernest Borgnine's final role. The actor portrays a retired radio DJ who becomes a heroic figure to the Latin), always dreamed of being a Western movie cowboy. After suffering a back injury, Rex finds himself recovering at Rancho Park nursing home, a facility held in the villainous grip of local businessman Mr.
I found this story strange since John Hyams is currently making Universal Soldier: A New Dimension with Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Scott Adkins, Rus Blackwell, Mariah Bonner, Audrey P. Scott, David Jensen, Adam Sibley, James DuMont, Roy Jones Jr., Christopher Severio, Juli Erickson, and David Lee Valle. The film has not even been released yet. I thought Michael Jai White was starring in the film as well, reported here: Universal Soldier: A New Dimension: Michael Jai White joins Damme, Lundgren, but a quick check of his IMDb page and the Universal Soldier: A New Dimension
The film works as well as it does due to a tour de force performance by Lauren Ambrose who first came on my radar as Chicklet in Psycho Beach Party. Similar to Chicklet, it takes a smart person to play someone with a certain set of real world knowledge, while lacking a total understanding of her surroundings. Her performance is masterful. When in the presence of her daughter
Directed by Werner Herzog
In the context of a documentary that’s been billed as being about death row, “Tell me about an encounter with a squirrel” might seem like an entirely nonsensical interview demand. Yet, for the inimitably disarming Werner Herzog, it works like a charm, and succeeds in eliciting one of the many poignant moments that punctuate Into the Abyss. Actually less about death row than the general, fascinating fallout of a staggeringly senseless triple homicide, the film addresses all aspects of the event, from the initial investigation to the eventual execution of one of the young perpetrators, who is interviewed just days before he is scheduled to die. Herzog, certainly, is anti-capital punishment, but Into the Abyss is far from an “issue documentary” in the Michael Moore vein, and achieves a sensitive balance. This sensitivity, in turn, combined with Herzog’s ability to
