> Let me follow up my own post to say that what I'm missing in most if not all American films of recent years is tranquility, deliberateness. It looks like they are trying to appeal to impressionable teenagers with a lot of gimmicks, explosions, shooting and noise. Hollywood needs to calm down. They're mostly hysterical.
Your thoughts echo some of my own feelings on film today. Have you seen FROZEN RIVER, starring HOMICIDE's (TV) Melissa Leo? I thought it was an excellent crime film. It's about two women living on the edge of financial ruin, who take to trafficing illegal immigrants over the US/Canadian border.
