|"Why wasn't Gods and Monsters up for an
award? If it had been, writer-director Bill Condon's satisfying, inventive,
cinemaphile fantasy (based on Christopher Bram's novel Father of Frankenstein)
about the last years of Frankenstein director James Whale and a young gardener he
fancies, would have been a shoe-in for honors. It's got Death in Venice depth
and great performances by Ian McKellen and Brendan Fraser."

|"OK folks, I'm sure everyone is wanting to know what
I've seen thus far... Forget it, there is only one film that I have seen that the word,
"GREAT" cries out to be associated with... That is GODS & MONSTERS."

"Treasure Hunting at Sundance"
by Cara Mertes & Patricia Thomson
