this passably enjoyable medical thriller, Hayden Christensen is a man who
remains fully awake, albeit paralyzed, during open-heart surgery; to make
matters worse, the doctors may be botching the operation on purpose. Jessica Alba
plays Christensen's love interest, and as the absurdities pile up you can keep
yourself awake by ogling the drop-dead gorgeous leads.
Lost in the Fire: In Susanne Bier's impeccably constructed drama, a recent
widow (Halle Berry) invites her husband's junkie friend (Benicio Del Toro) to
live with her family. Del Toro offers the most intricately mapped depiction of
addiction and strained humanity ever put on screen.
