Vanishing on 7th Street has so much going for it, I vacillate between feeling bad that I can't quite recommend it and feeling enraged that it's not as good as it should be. For most of its runtime, it's a film of great style, great performances, and thoughtful explorations of well-worn character types. It punctuates intense dialogue scenes with thrilling moments of action and horror. It has one of the best opening sequences I've ever seen (even if it borrows a bit from the first Left Behind book--though, thankfully, it doesn't slide into hokey fundamentalist propaganda). It's the type of movie I'd enthusiastically recommend if not for two things: its shadow people, and its ending. http://www.theparallaxreview.com/in_t...
