Year Released: 2004
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 105 minutes

Joe Scott is both hilarious and fearless. In “Ocean Front Property” he has created a bitter, small character in the form of Rick.

“Flesh Wounds” proudly sets itself up as the kind of film that’s willing to pose questions without answering them, and for about ten minutes out of the twenty-five, it really works…

NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM – NEW ORDER OF THE AGES – CONNECT THE DOTZ – PART 2 (DVD)

2 Stars
Year Released: 2004
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 58 minutes

The problem with reviewing a film like this is attempting to break it down into its individual components. It seems unfair, as this film obviously is meant to be experienced as a whole – educating and enlightening, and causing people to break out into spontaneous discussions for days afterwards…

HOMELAND SECURITY

1 Stars
Year Released: 2003
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 11 minutes

An honest discussion of homeland security, and the Patriot Act, and what they really mean could make for an interesting film.

It’s a universe where dance is the only language, and I would have loved to see it come to a real conclusion rather than offering me a five-minute dance recital…
