Movie Review by AJ
June 28th, 2006

You know, usually when a movie is as pretentious as The Door in the Floor is, it at least has some good ideas behind it. Take 8 1/2, for example; I didn't like it, but I appreciated the thoughts behind it. I can't say the same for The Door in the Floor. There are no good ideas here, just a mediocre script that rehashes a lot of things we've seen before in similar films to only middling effect. In fact, the only reason that the film isn't truly bad is that all of the performances are quite good. Jeff Bridges makes an otherwise repelling and dull character an interesting (if familiar) person, Jon Foster is quite winning, and Kim Basinger brings a certain undefinable uniqueness to her character that makes her a tapestry of secrets, lies, and deception. But I'm sorry, nothing here is new, and I don't really care. I wish I knew why all of this very talented people did.
