Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff


Jewish Film Festival -- Taking place Oct. 2-6 at the Met, the Jewish Film Festival offers three highly acclaimed films on Jewish culture and Jewish personages. Emma Goldman: An Exceedingly Dangerous Woman (not rated) profiles the grandmotherly anarchist and 20th-century societal pioneer. Gloomy Sunday (Rated: PG-13), inspired by the infamous "Hungarian Suicide Song," tells the story of a caf & eacute; owner, a pianist and a waitress embroiled in a WW-II era love triangle. And My Architect (Rated: PG) is the true story of an illegitimate son's search for the truth about his famous architect father. For film times, call the Met at 227-7638.





Ladder 49 -- When a veteran firefighter (Joaquin Phoenix) is trapped within a high-rise inferno, the chief (John Travolta) and his crew must figure out how to find and rescue him. The film plays out through as series of imaginatively presented flashbacks that chronicle the man's life -- in and out of the firehouse -- over the past decade, from deadly situations to goofy pranks. The story maintains a high degree of intensity but is flawed in its use of tired clich & eacute;s, some overacting, and an ending that's too maudlin. (ES) Rated PG-13





Shark Tale -- The newest underwater animated feature, this one from DreamWorks, tells of a dreamer fish named Oscar (voice of Will Smith), who thinks he'll get ahead in the world by taking credit for killing a bad guy shark, who was actually an accident victim. When the shark's crime boss father (Robert De Niro) hears of Oscar's bragging, it's score-settling time. Sounds nasty, but the film is quite funny, with plenty of positive messages for young viewers, and excellent computer animation. (ES) Rated PG
