Playing this week
Hellboy - Action by Guillermo del Toro. Ron Perlman stars as Hellboy, a demon summoned from hell by the Third Reich with help from an evil man named Grigori Rasputin (Karel Roden). But Hellboy is captured by the Americans, who, through the guidance of Professor Broom (John Hurt), raise him to become a compassionate young demon. All seems well until Rasputin returns, 60 years after the war, to recruit Hellboy for his latest plan to rule the world. Selma Blair also stars.
Fahrenheit 9/11 - Documentary by Michael Moore. As a work of cinema, truthfully it's not so good. But it's not for nothing that it's by far the most successful documentary in American history. Moore manages to get his hands on some amazing material: hilarious "off-the-record" footage of President Bush and his administration, as well as damning and upsetting evidence of shady goings-on. Is it biased? Is it worth seeing? Is it as good as everyone says it is? Most definitely yes, yes, and no.
