thoroughly adequate

"Healer": A run-of-the-mill morality play about a man who finds redemption, loses it, then finds it again. Also contains some social commentary on the concept of religion as a business.

"Children's Zoo": A simple modern-day fairy tale revolving around a cute little girl who gets the chance to write her own happy ending. Some of the adult actors were kind of hammy, but it's watchable. The music is nice.

"Kentucky Rye": Jeffrey DeMunn has the perfect face to play the alcoholic weasel salesman who is the main character in this segment. His fate becomes pretty obvious partway through, but it was still fascinating to see how the story would get there. Philip Bruns is also great as the creepy bartender.
