For the dog days of summer, two cool movies I recommend:

All I Want. Elijah Wood plays a backcountry seventeen year-old going to college and living in an apartment with two women, one an aspiring actress played by Mandy Moore (in a stretch from most of her other fare), and Franka Potente as a the mysterious photography student. Really bizarre, and a little hard to get into at first, but it's worth it.

Just a Little Harmless Sex. A man is driving home one night and picks up a hitchhiker. She ends up being a hooker and after he accepts oral sex from her, he ends up in jail. His wife has to bail him out and their marriage is on the rocks. It's the most boring plot in the movie. Both are planning nights out, the guy with male friends and the wife with female friends. Two of the friends happen to be ex-spouses (one being the always classic Jonathan Silverman). Meanwhile, Kimberly Williams has the always wonderful "ugly chick becomes cute, attracts guys" subplot. Quality SLANFARE (see the Simmons column from the below post for the reference).


Theme? We don't need no stinkin' theme!
