"New Moon" [C]
There's some sort of compulsion for those who live in the Pacific Northwest to watch just about anything set or filmed there. That's the only excuse I have for actually sitting through this from beginning to end. The scenic photography is often fantastic. But that's it. The story is opaque. The motivation of the central characters is incomprehensible. The pace is glacial. The acting is monotonal. It's all rather monotonous.
