The English lesbian period piece about the supernatural, taboo and the like set around a woman's prison. It is prisoner for a different time with a bit of in-cell snogging and hard dykish prison guards. Made for TV, but I saw it as part of the Mardi Gras Film Festival. Interesting enough, but not terribly engaging.
Daniel Day-Lewis is brilliant in the lead role in Lincoln and you can tell that the actor has huge admiration for his character. This is a powerful and compelling portrayal of the man who would become a legend and change the course of history in the US - but it is Day-Lewis' performance that makes it great.
Denzel Washington does a great job in conveying the pull of the bottle for an alcoholic. The crash scene is exhilarating and from there the film is full of long takes and no special effects with a real commitment from the whole cast.
It hasn't gotten amazing reviews and I agree that it isn't realy Hitchcockian enough - but in the end this is polished and a breezy effort at an insight into the big man. It will delight film buff's more than the average punter I guess.
The biggest question about The Cold Light of Day is why someone like Sigourney Weaver would let herself get caught up in this mess. Bruce Willis should also know a action flick stinker when he reads a script. The premise for tension here is just so poorly established that I really didn't care what happened to this guys family.
