Saw a burning rash of a blistering film last night – and there ain’t no ointment going to ease the sensation it’ll give. “In The Cut”, just superb. The second half of ’03 is proving to be a better ground for releases. "Pirates", "Nemo", "T3", "In America", "Seabiscuit", "Cabin Fever", and now the Meg Ryan number, it nearly soothes the pain of the junkish "Hulk" of releases pre-mid year. Here’s today’s who’s, what’s, where’s and for how much you going to pay me to do that!
