Hands of a Stranger

Semi-gripping thriller.


Thriller

Rod Lott
After ruining his golden phalanges in an auto accident, concert pianist Vernon Paris (James Noah, Black Sheep) gets replacement mitts "donated" by a guy fatally shot thrice on the studio backlot street. The renegade medical procedure is dangerous, experimental and performed by a surgeon (Paul Lukather, Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter) who assures us, "I've transplanted other hands, yes."

The Immigrant

Director James Gray offers stellar melodrama of a foreigner’s journey in America.


Drama

Phil Bacharach
In the cacophony of high-concept movies and TV, there’s something to be said for the spare beauty of old-fashioned melodrama. The Immigrant, now playing exclusively at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, covers familiar territory: A wide-eyed ingénue in the big city falls prey to the clutches of a bad man. Yet that familiarity is part of what makes these stories so powerful. They speak to things — temptation, suffering and redemption — deeply rooted in our collective being.
