The Crossing Guard

Sean Penn's second outing as director has the same strengths and weaknesses as his first, THE INDIAN RUNNER. His emphasis on acting is welcome at a time when shallow, smirkingly self-referential performances threaten to become the Hollywood norm, but the film's slack pacing and narrative indiscipline undermine its intensity. It's all fireworks and no more
