Last Exit To Brooklyn Review


Good
A little meandering, a little lost, and a lot grim, Uli Edel's cult classic tells a handful of stories against the backdrop of World War II and massive corruption in New York City. The centerpiece of the story is a hooker/conwoman (Jennifer Jason Leigh in an infamous role) who falls in love with one of her customers, an army guy who's about to ship out. Her personal struggle with detachment and her horrific past (and inevitable future) make the rest of the film -- which features rioting and a somewhat out of place vignette about one character's hidden homosexuality -- fade away.

Olympia (1998) Review


OK
Bizarre as it sounds, Olympia tells the wacky story of a Mexican soap opera star (Olympia) who heads north to try her hand as an Olympic javelin thrower. Her trainer, a former taco-costume character, falls in love. Nuttiness ensues. A low-budget film shot in Texas, Olympia has moments of hilarity but is saddled by a plot of little consequence. Olympia's journey is never entirely serious, saddled further by a slapstick scenario. Her trainer (Jason Andrews) ostensibly learns about life and love... but it never really comes across on the screen. So-so at best.
