Girl, Interrupted [C] Film Geek: This film, made in the Portland (Oregon) area, is obviously a low budget affair, and the seams do show in a few areas. The music is cheap throughout, the camera work less polished than a film with more time to shoot, and some of the performances a little broad. That said, it's not a bad film, with an ending that you think is going one way, but then goes another in the final shot. It's embarrassing how many of the film references I recognized in the movie, but let's not dwell... A Nightmare on Elm Street: Much more effective and genuinely scary than I had expected it to be. Largely due to the later points of crossover, I've heard this series compared to the much lesser Friday the 13th franchise, but Craven's brand of horror is much more mature and interesting. At times, however, what Freddy can and can't do is a little vague, resulting in an ending that is more confusing than scary. Additionally, the adults behave believably until the end, when the police across the street blow of the female lead even though she is yelling, smashing windows, setting of loud and bright explosions, and I can't even remember what else. Girl, Interrupted: I admit, I expected to hate this movie before seeing it, but it turns out that it wasn't as bad as I had expected. Jolie plays her role well, before the writing lets her character become a bit obvious. Ryder is less effective, but I've never been particularly drawn to her as an actress. At most times, Goldberg is the glue holding the whole affair together (Vanessa Redgrave, Kurtwood Smith, and Jeffrey Tambor help, but their roles are limited) Sometimes everything is too sentimental, and too pat. Other times it's a more complex film. It's never consistent, though, and a couple of montages too easily gloss over things I would have rather explored in greater detail.
