    • "1408" directed by Mikael Hafstrom [review] 

      Prescott, Nicholas Adrian (Australian Broadcasting Corporation, 2007-11-22)
      1408 is a puzzling film, in many ways. It’s puzzling primarily because John Cusack is in it, and it’s not a very good film. This is an oddity, in my opinion; the ever-likeable Cusack very rarely steps out of line, usually ...

      Bramwell, Murray Ross (Adelaide Review, 2003-11)
