Joan of Arc (France, 1999)

This one slipped under my radar and it’s not surprising audiences didn’t like it – the last 1/2 consists of the heroine being tortured and then burned (I’m not giving anything away am I? You’ve heard the story?). Actions sequences rarely thrill and while the presentation of Joan as a schizo-type borders on bonkers, Jovovich just pulls it off. Some great visuals and I love Hoffman’s turn as the Conscience – spot on on religion. (DVD) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0151137/
