title: Feeling Minnesota function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: New Line Home Video starring: Keanu Reeves, Cameron Diaz, Vincent D’Onofrio, Delroy Lindo release year: 1996 film rating: Two-and-a-Half Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein ‘Feeling Minnesota’ is a fitfully engaging, genre-straddling tall tale that at various points embraces romance, film noir, road trip yarns and comedy of both the dark and slapstick varieties. The finale seems a bit arbitrary, or as though some linking footage was cut out, but there’s some fun to be had along the way.

title: They Shoot Horses, Don't They? function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Jane Fonda, Michael Sarrazin, Susannah York, Gig Young, Red Buttons, Bonnie Bedelia, Bruce Dern, Al Lewis, Michael Conrad release year: Four and a half stars film rating: 1969 reviewed by: Bill Warren Some great American movies have slipped between the cracks, and THEY SHOOT HORSES, DON'T THEY? is one of them. Based on Horace McCoy's 1935 novel, directed by Sydney Pollack and written by James Poe and Robert E. Thompson, this deeply engrossing, almost hypnotically fascinating movie was released by the short-lived ABC theatrical distribution arm. And so no one has had much incentive to promote it on video until now.

title: Two Lane Blacktop function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();  studio: Anchor Bay Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: James Taylor, Dennis Wilson, Warren Oates, Laurie Bird, Harry Dean Stanton, Rudy Wurlitzer, Bill Keller, Alan Vint release year: 1971 film rating: Four-and-a-half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Monte Hellman is one of the great cult directors of the last 40 years; his movies are highly regarded but rarely seen. He emerges from obscurity occasionally to direct a mysterious project, or, even more mysteriously, to turn up as executive producer of 'Reservoir Dogs.' Then he fades away again, the mystery man of movies.

title: Rebel Without A Cause function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Warners Home Video MPAA rating: NR starring: James Dean, Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo, Jim Backus, Ann Doran, Corey Allen, Dennis Hopper, Nick Adams release year: 1955 film rating: Four and a half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren By the time Rebel Without a Cause was in release, James Dean was dead, killed in an automobile accident (not his fault, despite Hollywood legends to the contrary) on September 9, 1955 -- but his legend was just beginning. Even today, 45 years after his death, his star burns as intensely as ever; with only three leading roles (this, East of Eden and Giant), Dean is still one of the most inspiring actors ever, to thousands, maybe millions, of alienated teenagers as well as to other actors.

title: Priest function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); <br> studio: Miramax Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Linus Roache, Tom Wilkinson, Robert Carlyle, Cathy Tyson release year: 1995 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein For a little movie, "Priest" certainly caused a big commotion when it was released in the U.S. in 1995. The alliance between Walt Disney Co. and Miramax Films was fairly new at the time, so Disney must have been especially startled when "Priest," a low-budget British acquisition, drew the wrath of a number of Catholic organizations, who made their displeasure known not only to distributor Miramax but also to parent company Disney. Miramax subsequently grew a couple of other arms to shield Disney from this sort of flak, but seven years later, it’s still easy to see what all the brouhaha was about.
