    Had Araki chosen to illuminate, rather than exploit, the traumatic aftermath of child molestation, his wallow in the horrors of Mysterious Skin might have had a purpose. As it stands, his film is just another trashy look at America as the land of imbecilic perverts.

    Undiscovered promotes one of the stupidest visions of the entertainment industry since "American Idol" opened the celebrity gateway to the dregs of the karaoke generation.

    Writer/director Wayne Kramer's approach to storytelling is to withhold any information that might give away the plot.

    For the most part, the film is a chaotic blur of disconnected movement that re-creates the feeling of an unforgettably bad concert experience.

    Mostly unfabulous.

    The most ridiculous period film since rappers took on the Old West in "Posse."

    There is a point, however, at which the movie becomes simply sickening. Between the electric shocks and hot-iron branding, feats of grossness are accomplished that are so vile even the hardiest among the cast cannot suppress the upchuck.

    The actors, all unprofessional with the exception of Kim Chan as the Zen master, step on each other's clipped lines so regularly that it becomes a stylistic affectation, like Mamet directing Beckett.

    When the little girl tells her decapititated doll, "It's not just a bad dream," she is right. It's just a bad movie.

    It is a pretentious and incoherent blend of ghost story and frontier adventure that becomes more preposterous and idiotic with each passing scene.

    • 25 Bill White
    A gruelingly dull slog through basic horror-movie conventions, should be dumped in the Seine.

    Before the movie reaches its climax, it has created a mess that requires divine intervention.

    Exploitive while it pretends to be empathetic.

    The film's one original moment comes when Bluto has a conversation with a cow. The rest of it, from the distorting lens used randomly to suggest unreality, to the twist ending lifted verbatim from the superior "High Tension," is about as imaginative as a portobello steak with onions.

    Plays like a pilot for a situation comedy about a 40-year-old carpenter who decides to return to the boxing ring.

    When the veterans of this war are finally allowed to tell their own stories, we will have something worth listening to. Body of War is just election year claptrap.

    What finally sinks the film is that the more it tries to dazzle us, the more uninterested we become.

    The inconsistencies and continuity errors are staggering.

    A disaster on all levels.

    There is potential for laughs in a satire of rich people spending big money on religious galas, but that is not even the real subject of the picture.

    This shambling mess -- offers nothing but a lesson in how not to make a movie.
