I Am David Review


Bad
Despite some recognition by minor festivals and to the joy of overprotective mothers, this story of a boy who escapes from a Bulgarian labor camp in 1952 comes as a mostly juvenile effort from people who are into sanitizing reality. Mostly it's unreal, bloodless, and boring, but as a sentimental fable designed not to shock the little ones, it can be considered a safe distraction.

Pre-teen David (Ben Tibber) has grown up a prisoner of fascists running a camp whose purpose appears to be the breaking up of rocks. His sole friend is Johannes (Jim Caviezel), an adult who mentors him as a father figure. When Johannes is shot dead over a stolen bar of soap, David is given instructions on how to escape, where to go, the advice to "trust no one," and a bag of essentials including a compass, a pocket knife, a bar of soap, and a sealed envelope for delivery to whoever meets him at his destination in Denmark.

Britannia Hospital Review


OK
It's hard to imagine a more scattered and absurd film, and Britannia Hospital must be a lot of fun if your mood has been chemically altered. Before the day is up at the kooky Britannia Hospital, there will be a mad scientist who not only creates a synthetic, talking brain but also hacks up Malcolm McDowell with a meat cleaver, there'll be protests, a labor strike, and the Queen of England will be on hand to witness it all. Crazy, and pretty much nonsense in the end. Check out The Kingdom TV series for a similar story done with more flair.
