5 HORRIFIC SEAN PENN FLICK PICKS! - ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE CAMERA IN "THE CROSSING GUARD"

Jack - on a vengeance,
he must get his man.
David Morse is his man,
a rehabilitated gentle giant.
Robin Penn wants to free him.
In this great scene, she tries to 
get him to step outside himself
and dance. And oh, can she dance!
Priscilla Barnes in a rare
appearance as a stripper.
Have I whet your appetite yet? Our first pick of the lot is this Sean Penn directed film, an understated masterpiece of a film, albeit dark in tone at times. Sean Penn, one of the greatest American actors of all time gets lifted up this weekend as we try and point your way to some Penn flicks you've never seen. Of the 4 films he's directed, this one is, in this not-so-humble fans opinion, the best of the lot, perhaps even edging out Into The Wild, another.....Horror!!

MOVIE REVIEW : 'Crossing Guard' Allows Emotion to Be Its Guide

Sean Penn brings the same visceral intensity and raw emotionality to writing and directing as he does to acting, and while that may sound like a good thing, it finally isn't. "The Crossing Guard," Penn's second film behind the camera, is a troubling, troublesome movie whose makeshift structure cannot contain the powerful flood of passions that he and his cast have poured into it.

Movie Review - - FILM REVIEW;From Sean Penn, a Raw Style and a Vision - NYTimes.com

Sean Penn is a slugger of a film maker, whether pummeling his audience with the obvious or hammering home the heartfelt and true. His second feature, "The Crossing Guard," has the same brute force that made his "Indian Runner" such a gripping oddity, bearing the distinctive stamp of Mr. Penn's raw, searching style.

It's the Chupacabra, run for your lives....THE HORROR!!
