Panic Room | DVD | (28/10/2002)
from £4.22 | Saving you £15.77 (78.90%) | RRP
An effective exercise in "confined cinema", Panic Room is a finely crafted thriller that ultimately transcends the thinness of its premise. David Koepp's screenplay is basically Wait Until Dark on steroids, so director David Fincher (Seven, The Game) compensates with elaborate CGI-assisted camera moves, jazzing up his visuals. A relocated New York divorcée (Jodie Foster) and her diabetic daughter (Kristen Stewart) fight for their lives against a trio of tenacious burglars (Jared Leto, Forest Whitaker, Dwight Yoakam) in their new Manhattan townhouse. They're safe in a customised, impenetrable "panic room", but the burglars want what's in the room's safe, so mother and daughter (and Koepp and Fincher) must find clever ways to turn the tables and persevere. Suspense and intelligence are admirably maintained, with Foster (who replaced the then-injured Nicole Kidman) relying on her Silence of the Lambs resourcefulness. It's not as viscerally satisfying as Fincher's previous thrillers, but Panic Room definitely holds the viewer's attention. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com
Chapter 27 | DVD | (28/04/2008)
from £4.75 | Saving you £11.24 (70.30%) | RRP
The question 'where were you when you heard John Lennon was killed?' has been asked by millions of people all over the world since the legendary ex-Beatle and humanitarian was shot dead by Mark David Chapman on 8 December 1980. Chapter 27 is first-time writer-director JP Schaefer's own version of the reasons behind the killing. An official selection at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival Chapter 27 stars Hollywood hot properties Jared Leto (Panic Room Lord of War Fight Club) who famously put on 67 pounds to play the part of Chapman and Lindsay Lohan (Mean Girls Bobby) who shines as a hardcore Lennon fan. Following the events leading up to the moment Chapman shot Lennon five times in the back after the singer had autographed an album cover for him Chapter 27 is a play on JD Salinger's classic novel The Catcher in the Rye which ends on chapter 26. Chapman related and modeled his life after the book's main character Holden Caulfield and it was the book he held onto at the time he infamously shot John Lennon. Chapman claimed the book held the reasons behind the heinous act. Portraying Chapman's mental collapse as his demons win over Chapter 27 is shocking thought-provoking and ultimately essential viewing for fans not only of the legendary musician but anyone who want to know more about one of the twentieth century's most talked about events.
