If you rent one movie this year, make it Repo! the Genetic Opera. Not only is it a visually stunning ROCK OPERA, the concept just about blew my mind. It's set in the not too distant future wherein mass organ failures have given way to the genetic corporation, GENECO. The company will give you organs on loan and put you on a payment plan, but if you miss a payment the Repo Man will come reposess them. And then, well, you die.

There's so much more to the movie (complicated inner turmoil, teen angst, betrayal, regret, addiction, secrecy, power struggle...) but I don't want to give it away.

Okay, I know what you're thinking: Paris Hilton is in this movie, it can't possibly be good. I would have thought the same thing, but it's not true! She's actually good at playing her (biotch of a) character. Plus, there are so many other people who shine in this film (like, uh, SARAH EFFING BRIGHTMAN, the first lady of amazing singing) that it's totally worth seeing.

Go! See it! And then let's talk about it!
