The Last Exorcism

Disclaimer: I'm a former Catholic boy scared to hell by nuns.

According to the tacit rules of Blair Witch, The Last Exorcism passes the test. As Reverend Cotton Marcus (Patrick Fabian) performs his last exorcism in front of a documentary camera, young director Daniel Stamm makes it look real enough, as Blair Witch did, with the requisite jerky hand-held camera, low key lighting, and local-looking cast.

    Takers

    They'll take your money and run.

    If there were an "absurdist heist" Oscar, then Takers would take. It is a pit of clich?s: the weak link, meddling family members, troubled cops, and love triangle. Top it all off with a camera as jerky as the San Fran earthquake, and you have one failed caper.

    The American

    A Killer

    I enjoyed half of The American, a thriller starring George Clooney as Jack/Edward, a primo assassin pulling his last assignment in Italy. The latter part is full of logical holes and clich?s so as to compromise the above average grade I would have awarded the first part.
