Judging by the reactions to our review of Park Chan-Wook's "Stoker" out of the Sudance Film Festival, it seems that some of you only want to hear that this movie is the greatest. And admittedly, we were looking forward to it (certainly this writer was), and while commenters love to point to the other sites that have given the movie positive notices, that's a pretty tepid rebuttal all around. But as always, it's worth judging for yourself and you'll have your chance very soon, but until then are some new pics.

Judging by the reactions to our review of Park Chan-Wook's "Stoker" out of the Sudance Film Festival, it seems that some of you only want to hear that this movie is the greatest. And admittedly, we were looking forward to it (certainly this writer was), and while commenters love to point to the other sites that have given the movie positive notices, that's a pretty tepid rebuttal all around. As always, it's worth judging for yourself, and you'll have your chance very soon, but until then here are some new pics.

The film comes from the pen of Wentworth Miller and follows India (Mia Wasikowska), whose father dies in a car crash, leaving her to adjust to her newly moved in Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode) and her chilly mom (Nicole Kidman). Certainly, the potential for a Hitchcock-ian potboiler is there, but our man in Park City just couldn't roll with the film's style over anything else. He writes that the film "is beyond help...and only gets worse and worse as Charlie's true backstory is revealed, the logic goes out the window, and the visual chaos and soapy melodrama overwhelm the offended senses."

But you'll be able to determine for yourself if "Stoker" succeeds when it opens on March 1st.
