This week's reviewed movie is:
The Constant Gardener




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber



The Constant Gardener captures the chaotic quality of out-of-control politics of a major pharmaceutical firm conducting harmful tests on unsuspecting Kenyans in Africa.

It also has a hot romantic relationship with chemistry left over to burn.

This political thriller has plenty to offer and leaves you wondering how well we know the world around us, not to mention the people close to us.

For me, this is one of the best pictures of the year.

The Constant Gardener is an intelligent character-driven drama filled with intrigue and political heavy-handedness.

Told mainly in flashbacks, it's the story of a man possessed to find the truth.

But it's the fine acting and brilliant direction that make this one a cut above the rest.

It's an extraordinary thriller filled with political cover-ups, self-awareness, and the pangs of lost love.

The Constant Gardener is a tragic love story that focuses on the way medicines are tested in third-world nations and how corporate greed takes advantage of the poor & sick by attempting to cover up any bad side effects that might occur after testing.

The movie is fiction, but the incidents it looks at are based on real-world events from Asia & Africa.
