Review: 9

9 awakens. The world he enters is much different than our own. There are no humans left. 8 other sackcloth dolls roam "the emptiness" trying to scrounge food and supplies while avoiding "the beast". And that's about all you know for a good portion of this film. 9 is an interesting little film that begins light on story and then slams you against the wall with an incredible one and a deep, deep meditation on humanity. This is a cartoon, but it's certainly not one to take the kiddos to.

Review: Sunshine Cleaning

Let me get something out there now. I want to make Amy Adams my wife. She's insanely beautiful and has a quality about her that just seems so real and genuine that you can't help but be drawn to her. She has this fantastic ability to be so kind and compassionate in every single role and it's truly something I've never been able to figure out. And of course, that is exactly the case in Sunshine Cleaning.
