Anne Thompson at Variety has some strong opinions of "The Savages," a film by Tamara Jenkins starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Laura Linney and Philip BoscoWrites Thompson, "On second viewing, as good as Philip Seymour Hoffman is, I realized that it's Laura Linney's movie. (Hoffman will go after a best actor nod for Before the Devil Knows Your Dead.) If Angelina Jolie or Cate Blanchett falls out, Linney could be a dark horse replacement for best actress. She's always good, and she's due (she was nominated twice, for supporting for Kinsey and lead for You Can Count On Me). Philip Bosco also nails the silent and reactive role of the unsympathetic, demented dad."

I'm not sure when this film will arrive in Little Rock.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
