House of D

2006-03-30 13:23


An American artist living a bohemian existence in Paris, Tom Warshaw (David Duchovny) is trying to make sense of his troubled adult life by reflecting upon his extraordinary childhood...

The year is 1973, and thirteen-year-old Greenwich Village native Tommy Warshaw (Anton Yelchin) is on the brink of becoming a man. While his bereaved single mother (Tea Leoni) continues to mourn the death of his father, Tommy escapes his own grief by causing trouble at school and making afternoon meat deliveries with his best friend Pappas (Robin Williams), a mentally challenged janitor. Following the romantic advice offered by Lady (Erykah Badu) - incarcerated in the infamous Greenwich Village Women's House of Detention for shadowy reasons - Tommy even experiences his first taste of love.

Yet when an unexpected tragedy radically alters his world, Tommy must make a life-defining choice - one that will compel the adult Tom Warshaw, thirty years later, to confront his unfinished past.

What the critics are saying:

"The film looks and feels authentic, but Duchovny has powered his undeniably personal journey with a counterfeit heart."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

"House of D is the kind of movie that particularly makes me cringe, because it has such a shameless desire to please."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"The reasons to avoid House of D, David Duchovny's earnest, unwatchable coming-of-age drama, can best be summarized in a simple declarative sentence. Robin Williams plays a retarded janitor."
- A.O. Scott, New York Times

David Duchovny's directorial debut, starring Robin William, is sensitive, serious, sincere...and completely unwatchable.

House of D I found this movie funny, sensitive and completely watchable. I am a huge Robin Williams fan and do not generally like him in movies other than comedy. I was totally drawn into this film and found myself laughing, crying and then laughing again. I loved it! Highly

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone

2016-10-14 07:38

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
