Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff


25th Hour -- Spike Lee's newest joint has Edward Norton as a New York drug dealer getting ready to do seven years in the hoosegow. On his last day and night of freedom, he's seen drinking with his two best pals (Barry Pepper, Philip Seymour Hoffman), each with issues of their own; sharing some meaningful time with his dad (Brian Cox); and trying to figure out whether it was his girlfriend (Rosario Dawson) who turned him in. (ES) Rated: R





Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind -- Anyone who watched The Gong Show (or The Dating Game or The Newlywed Game) needs to see this bio-pic on the life and odd times of their creator, Chuck Barris. As wonderfully played by Sam Rockwell, he's nervous, shy, full of himself, brilliant in a strange way, and maybe even quite dangerous. The film, based on his book, suggests that Barris did game shows as his day gig, and killed for the CIA during his down town. Terrifically acted (by Drew Barrymore and George Clooney, who also directed). (ES) Rated: R





Darkness Falls -- The premise lies somewhere between The Blair Witch Project and The Ring: a regional folk legend about a dead woman wreaks havoc with those living in the here and now. In the tiny seaside town of Darkness Falls a century-and-a-half ago, children bring their baby teeth to a kind neighbor woman who rewards them with a gold coin (consider it the first incarnation of the Tooth Fairy). But when two children go missing, the woman is blamed and hanged for her alleged crime. Fast forward to the present, sometimes with fatal consequences. Rated: PG-13





Far From Heaven -- Two-and-a-half months after its theatrical release, the critically acclaimed film about an unraveling 1950s suburban family finally comes to Spokane. The Whitakers (Julianne Moore and Dennis Quaid) are the perfect couple, with their two children, the latest in home appliances and a whirlwind social schedule. But when Frank (Quaid) realizes he's in love with another man, Cathy (Moore) feels the bright enamel of her life beginning to crack. Turning to her African-American gardener (Dennis Haysbert) for support, she courts the disapproval of her social circle and her community. Directed by Todd Haynes. Rated PG-13





& lt;i & Capsule reviews are written by Ed Symkus (ES) and Ray Pride (RP), unless otherwise noted. & lt;/i &

The world could always use another cautionary tale about bachelor parties. This time it's Jason Lee as the groom-to-be, who has just woken up next to Julia Stiles (incidentally, not his intended). Rated: PG-13
