(fr) wrote: This is one of those movies that you watch when you are bored and don't want to watch something that makes you think too much. The overall film was a bit slow, but was creative. I think the acting was good enough to keep you involved in the story, though don't expect anything amazing from this movie.

(de) wrote: Brilliantly written and skilfully directed with a cast of then-unknowns, Rip-Off is the definitive 'youth' movie - a hidden gem that never really got the credit it deserved. Uproaringly hilarious at times and painfully poignant at others, it's a remarkable study of the things that young people do for affirmation. Don Scardino stars - he now diredcts 30 Rock and it also includes the brilliant Mike Kukulewich and Toronto sportscaster Peter Gross
(au) wrote: i don't have a lot to say about this except that is a thoroughly entertaining movie that moves very briskly with moments of genuine terror and tension in a realistic, third world context with some coming of age young adult movie tropes thrown in
(fr) wrote: Great movie. I'm not sure where the notion of it being predictable is concerned, as I have not seen a similar plot unfold, then again I am not in the practice of watching art school movies. Seeing this receive a 36% on the tomatometer and kung fu panda 2 getting 81%, something is wrong here.

(ru) wrote: Great coming of age in sex tale that every adolescent teen should probably watch. Along with the debacle about finding out about sex, Ryan Merriman's character learns about his family, the sin that runs deep called adultery, and forgiveness. Gretchen Mol turns in a great performance as the object of lust turned object of love. The rest of the no-name cast turns in great performances as sometimes stock but, underneath the surface characters. This is one of those great family movies that goes under the radar for its R rating, basically because of the content and language. To me, its mild and a bit of an egregious error on the part of the ratings folks because of its slice-of-life storytelling. This probably went under everyone's radar in 2000 because of its small release and lack of star power in the cast. However, the story and hijinks of the kids make it well worth the time.

(ru) wrote: Sad tale of a luckless man and the woman who stands by him no matter what. Of course the acting is very fine and the direction good but the hopelessness of the film makes it more something to appreciate then actually enjoy.

(au) wrote: Whether drolling moralizing in "Metropolitan" or oozing with phobic sleeze on "Gilmore Girls", actor Chris Eigeman has always frolicked in irony. But in 2006, he wrote and directed "Turn the River", a film of immensely bitter sincerity. It presents a boy, Gulls (Jaymie Dornan) with two fates, each one leading to the same place--a world where he is forced to lie to protect his parents. The only difference is that his father's lies ("Yes, we did go to mass") are legal while his mother's ("Pretend you're sick so we can sneak into Canada") are not. Kailey, the mother, is played by Famke Janssen and it is her presence and the universe she inhabits that makes "Turn the River" stand above the current plethora of bitterly hopeless independant films. Kailey lives and breathes pool--when she's not playing for gas or hotel money, she sleeps on a pool table in the backroom of a pool hall run by Mr. Quinette (Rip Torn). It's the place where she plans to rig a game and win the money that'll help her illegally spirit Gully away from his quasi-abusive father. Needless to say, the world of "Turn the River" is a bleak, with little room for the humor or heroic poetry that makes movies an overwhelmingly popular artform. And yet for some reason, I would be happy to spend another film there. After serenely charging "X-Men" and "Star Trek", Janssen's name reverberates with good vibes. But "Turn the River" shows her in a new light--here she plays a character who is angry, clumsy, unpolished, and irrational. But inspite of all these theatrical qualities, Janssen offers a performance that feels thoroughly unstudied. Just watch her head drop to the floor after a weary Kailey wins a pool game--where a less instinctual performer would exagerate the motion, Janssen bends her neck with minimal emphasis, making the moment of rest appear unplanned and all the more real. As is her relationship to Gully. I knew I loved "Turn the River" the moment I watched him run into her arms in a park. It is the place where they meet in secret (Kailey doesn't have custody or visitation rights), where he tells about school and they tickle each other's noses. It is so clear that they are meant to be together and that the only thing preventing that is fate and Kailey's recklessness. It is clear that she loves Gully unconditionally and she is his greatest mentor, just as Mr. Quinette is hers (Torn is a modern sage: a wise man who passionately works to steer his pupil in the right direction, but recognizes that he must allow her to make even life-threatening mistakes). It is a cruel irony that Kailey's plan to help Gully escape his often abusive father will hurt him so deeply, even if escape is what mother and son both want. But ultimately, Eigeman's film is a celebration of the sweetness of the relationship between mother and son, as shown in the final scene which backtracks to the moment when Gully received a letter from his mother for the first time. In Eigeman's film, it is the things that cannot last which are more worth celebrating. **** :)
