What are people saying?

  • Adam GR's rating of the film The Shaft

    Naomi Watts took her worst gig directly between standout stints in Ellie Parker and Mulholland Dr to play the world's worst reporter and woman. James Marshall, that sweet misunderstood face, appears from obscurity to show the trials of an elevator repairman's life. This movie's about elevators. And somehow 9/11 pre-9/11. The worst ending of a movie maybe ever. Aerosmith's "Love in an Elevator" plays us out. Elevators
