The Movie Gurus of Movie-Gurus.com are an internationally located co-operative group of Film lovers united by an interest in movies.
The staff screens feature length films and documentaries of an hour or more in length in theaters, at Film Festivals, and on DvD. Occasionally we also review notable shorts or collections. Unlike many other review sites, our reviews tend toward an in-depth analysis of the film, and offer a rating against a carefully considered 5 star (with halves) scale.
We hope you enjoy your visit, and welcome your questions and comments.
The 1995 film, ‘The Cure’, was directed by TV actor, Peter Horton (‘thirtysomething’). Like the acclaimed 2004 film, ‘Mean Creek’, ‘The Cure’ is a film about young people in difficult situations. The result – from a studio point of view – was a film that struggled to find an audience since ‘The Cure’ was too depressing for teenagers – even though it won a number of film festival and Young Artist Awards and even a Grammy nomination for its soundtrack – and too ‘young’ for grown-ups. Even ‘Mean Creek’ is saddled with an incomprehensible “R” rating which will preclude its best audience.
