Synopsis


Forever Mine
Writer/director Paul Schrader explored his well-documented interest in film noir with this modern-day crime story. A horribly disfigured man named Manuel Esquema (Joseph Fiennes) is called upon to help out Mark Brice (Ray Liotta), a former city councilman in a wealthy New York community. Brice has been accused of some serious financial irregularities, and Esquema is the sort of "fixer" who might be able to make his problems go away. Mark, however, doesn't recognize Esquema as the former Alan Ripley, who was working as a towel boy at the Florida resort where Mark and his wife Ella (Gretchen Mol) were honeymooning shortly after their marriage. Alan became obsessed with Ella the moment he saw her, and before long the two were engaged in a torrid affair. Ripley urged Ella to leave Mark for him, but she refused; Ripley followed them to New York, and when Ella eventually confessed her infidelity to Mark, he responded by shooting off half of Alan's face. Alan survives and builds a new (and sinister) life for himself, but when Mark hires Esquema to help him, the former Alan's obsession with Ella blooms anew. Forever Mine was screened in competition at the 1999 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Ministry of Vengeance
A Vietnam War veteran (John Schneider) renounces the military for a priest's habit, but after his wife and daughter are killed by terrorists in Rome (and the government does nothing), the hero returns to violent means. ~ John Bush, Rovi

When an immoral hot-rodder, Johnny Varron (Jack Nicholson), is embittered by his friend Dave's (Robert Bean) betrayal of their wild and reckless life, he kidnaps Dave's girlfriend Nancy (Georgianne Carter) and takes her on a dangerous, high-speed romp while attempting to evade capture by the local cops. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi

Demolition High
This actioner is set at a California high school and centers on the courage of misunderstood and ostracized newcomer from New York who proves himself a fearless and creative leader in the face of terrorism. Lenny hasn't been in the school long. Branded a troublemaker by teachers, bullied by jocks and ignored by the girls, his new West Coast life is a shambles until the terrorists, who have just robbed a nuclear plant, show up and take almost everyone hostage. Lenny is among the few who are not captured. It is he who rallies the other stragglers and begins luring the terrorists individually into the school where they are killed in clever and gory ways while outside the school the military and the police, led by Lenny's father, scramble and bicker uselessly amongst themselves. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Street Corner Justice
In this exciting actioner, maverick ex-Philadelphia cop Mike "Street" Justus lands in Southern California, rounds up a gang of ex-cons who owe him favors and violently purges a Los Angeles suburb of the hard-core crooks who plague it. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Bad Cop Chronicles #1: Confessions of a Police Captain
Two lawmen play a game of cat and mouse when one suspects the other of being implicated in a murder in this Italian crime drama. Lomunno (Luciano Lorcas, aka Luciano Catenacci) is a notorious underworld kingpin who, along with several of his bodyguards, is killed by LiPuma (Adolfo Lastretti), who then turns his gun on himself. An investigation reveals that LiPuma was a dangerous mental patient with a grudge against the mobster who had very recently been released from a state institution. District Attorney Traini (Franco Nero) is convinced something's not right, and he suspects that police detective Captain Buonavilla (Martin Balsam), who for years had been obsessed with taking Dubrosio off the streets, might have been responsible for LiPuma's release. Buonavilla, however, believes that sometimes justice is more important than strictly following the rules -- and he thinks Traini might have his own hidden agenda. Confessione di un Commissario di Polizia al Procuratore della Repubblica (aka Confessions Of A Police Captain) was one of four Italian features Martin Balsam would star in during the year of 1972. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
