  • Catch That Kid Review
    By:

    While the Catch That Kid players may be appealing, the rest of the film misses out its potential to be a hip, pubescent heist flick. The only thing to "catch" in this film is perhaps a cold--from sitting in the theater with the 'tweener set.

  • The Man From Elysian Fields Review
    By:

    The Man From Elysian Fields is another independent film which manages to pique your curiosity and intellect, even if the ending doesn't live up to the rest of the film. Most importantly, it's good to see Andy Garcia large and in charge once again.

    HOLLYWOOD, Oct. 27, 2000 -- He's baaack! After virtually disappearing from the scene since 1997's "Jackie Brown," director Quentin Tarantino, who single-handedly started a genre trend with 1994's "Pulp Fiction," will finally return to the helm with his next project "Kill Bill," The Hollywood Reporter says. The project, also written by Tarantino, is said to be a revenge film intended as a starring vehicle for actress Uma Thurman, whom he directed to an Oscar-nominated turn in "Pulp Fiction." Mira

Synopsis
Byron Tiller, happily married with a young child, is a writer whose last novel has ended up in the remainder bins. Down on his luck and struggling to make ends meet, he keeps bashing away, refusing to admit that perhaps he is not that good. One day, at wit's end and feeling sorry for himself, he meets someone who has actually read his book: a rather elegant looking Englishman who introduces himself as Luther Fox. Luther runs an escort agency Elysian Fields, which provides extremely wealthy women with attractive, intelligent dates. Desperate for any job- and Luther guarantees good pay and convinces him that it can be only temporary -Byron reluctantly agrees, keeping the whole thing hidden from his wife. He soon finds himself face-to-face with an extremely attractive woman, whose aging husband is a Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist grappling with a novel that may be his last. Before long, Byron finds himself immersed in a world that he finds almost impossible to believe and even harder to explain.
