Picks and Pans Review: Into the Homeland
HBO (Sat., Dec. 26, 8 p.m. ET)
It's not a movie. It's a nightmare—the kind you have when your fever goes over 102, the kind that never makes any sense, the kind you quickly forget (if you're lucky). Powers (Red Dawn) Boothe plays a cop who quits the force and becomes a drunk, divorced and miserable surf-shop proprietor. Then his daughter, named—get this—Ember Swallow, is missing and Boothe tracks her to a neo-Nazi camp run by Paul (Hanoi Hilton) LeMat. The movie tries to have a sassy attitude but ends up looking as silly as a kindergartner smoking. It wants to deliver a message about bigotry but ends up looking as intelligent as your average bumper sticker.
