Well, sorta. Some of the characters in this film reminded me of some of
the ones in "Pulp Fiction". That and the fact that "Pulp Fiction" told
different stories as well and would occasionally make me laugh.
In "Burning Palms", we get five tales that all take place around Los
Angeles. The synopsis states that they all interlace but that's a
crock, don't believe it. Only one character, Dr. Shelly (Doherty),
shows up in more than one story... and the patients of hers never even
crossed paths. I couldn't think of a better place to set an anthology
film than L.A. (well, maybe Las Vegas, but that would have cost a lot
more) because of all the weird goings-on and the very eclectic mix of
people they have running around there.
Let's break this thing down and see what we got here, shall we?
Segment 1 - "The Green-Eyed Monster" - Dedra (Pike) and Dennis
(McDermott) await the arrival of Dennis' daughter, Chloe (Meade). Apon
arrival, Dedra can't get over the fact that Dennis and Chloe are close.
Very close. Probably the most disturbing tale but unfortunately, the
end result wasn't exactly the pay-off I was hoping for as it left some
Segment 2 - "This Little Piggy" - Chad (Hoffman) and Ginny (Chung) are
your average couple but Ginny feels a little insecure because Chad
likes big breasts -- so, she agrees to a sex act to hopefully put her
mind at ease. It does not. In fact, it drives her completely bonkers.
This one is my second favorite segment of the movie, a very funny tale
that would have had a better shock ending had they cut one short scene
Segment 3 - "Buyers Remorse" - Tom (Mount) and Geri (Macdissi) are a
gay couple in West Hollywood who want to adopt a child. They acquire a
little African-American girl (who they callously name Mahogany) via the
Black Market. There's something off about her and these two guys
obviously shouldn't be in possession of a child. The story itself is
not all that great, but the dialog and antics of Mount and Macdissi
are, which more than make up for it for me. Ending could have used a
little polishing as well, but again, I'm not complaining -- this one
kept me entertained and laughing.
Segment 4 - "Kangaroo Court" - Mary Jane (Bell) looks after three tween
boys in a mansion, complete with maids (Barraza, Vega). When something
of value to one of the maids goes missing, the brattiest kid turns the
living room into a courtroom and stages his own "Court TV" (only real)
to get to the bottom of things. Lake Bell is the only reason to watch
here, she's got some pretty funny lines and the big reveal at the end
wasn't all that shocking or disturbing.
Segment 5 - "Man Eater" - The second most disturbing tale opens with
the rape of Sarah Cotton (Saldana). And that's not even the disturbing
part. She finds a wallet in her home of one Robert Kane (Stahl), the
man who violated her. She tracks him down and has plans of her own...
Overall, this was a fun one to watch. It held my interest all the way
through and I had some good laughs throughout. The film would have
flowed better had they put the stories in this order: Kangaroo Court,
This Little Piggy, The Green-Eyed Monster, Buyers Remorse and then Man
Eater. It's important in anthology films to have your weakest link
first... in order to build up each story, as they get more and more
shocking. And it would have rated higher if they would have connected
the stories somehow, it could have easily been done. As I said before,
Doherty does show up in two of the segments and she was highly annoying
in both. I do recommend it as long as you're not easily offended by sex
acts (Buyers Remorse) -- there is no nudity in that segment but it is
heavily implied and more. For more reviews, visit www.soveryterry.com
