Cinecast #35: The Secrets Garden
Tuesday, 06 September 2005 01:00
That's right,  I'm the guy from The English Patient

It's unanimous: "The Constant Gardener" is the best directed movie of the year -- or, the best directed first half anyway. "Gardener," a romantic thriller set mainly in an impoverished region of Kenya, is Fernando Meirelles' follow-up to his brilliant 2002 debut "City of God." Meirelles shows himself to be a detailed and visually inventive director, but his strengths are of little help once the film launches into the plot-heavy and perhaps exploitative second half. Sam and Adam still want you to see the first half. It's that good. Or better yet, just rent "City of God."

Also on the show, Listener Feedback, Massacre Theatre -- presented by Movies -- and a preview of Friday's Top 5 Book Adaptations.

Music by Waco Brothers courtesy of Bloodshot Records ... Cinecast theme music by Age of the Rifle.
