Film Recommendations of the Week...

Clean and Sober
Release date August 8, 1988.
Running time 2 hours 4 minutes.

Michael Keaton's best and most underrated performance. He plays real estate agent Darryl Poynter, a man with severe drug and work-related issues who goes into drug rehab trying to escape the consequences that come from living such a toxic lifestyle. He then realizes during the course of his thirty day treatment that he can't fast-talk and con his way out of the mess he's made.

Morgan Freeman also stars in this film in an outstanding performance as Keaton's drug counselor.

Release date July 13, 2001.
Running time 1 hour 57 minutes.

Here is some more deviant asocial behavior for your viewing pleasure. Based on a true story, this film tells the tale of a group of dysfunctional, out-of-control teenagers who plan and execute the murder of an abusive peer whose behavior has everyone sick and tired. The acting is very good and at times has a documentary-type flow, which make the scenes of sex and violence that much more disturbing. The absolutely mahvelous looking Bijou Phillips plays the role of an out-of-control teenager caught up in this tale of juvenile delinquency that would have James Dean rolling in his grave.
