Movie Reviews

United Press International - 7/10 by Cathy Burke Bill presents his story of 5 Corners with a delicate mix of passion and humor, satire and devotion. It's the story of a time in America that became a crossroads for a generation, as well as for a unique neighborhood called 5 Corners.
User Review - 6/10 by Edith N Shanley's script, while often quite funny, doesn't really come together as a cohesive effort (and the humor does clash with the story's more melodramatic elements), but Foster and Turturro are very good, and the film's cinematography captures the time period well.
User Review - 4/10 by Jim H When the man who tried to rape her is released from prison, a woman elicits the help of a man who has sworn off violence. This is how not to do exposition. Three different characters tells the same story about what happened before the film's events, and this isn't like Rashomon in which the characters' stories differ. Then, we have a tangential murder of a schoolteacher, which is a plot line that falls through the cracks until the deus ex machina, and four other characters who go on a date. The basic point is this: the story, penned by John Patrick Shanley, is a mess. John Turturro plays a great street tough, and he brings humanity to a role that requires him to do inhuman things - often without explanation. I also like Tim Robbins's performance even though his character is inconsistent. Overall, I think this film is about violence and responsible responses to it, but it's hard to tell because of all the bad writing.
