Jurassic Park III

2001 / 92min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: JOE JOHNSTON

CAST: SAM NEILL, WILLIAM H. MACY, TéA LEONI

The strangest item on co-screenwriter Alexander Payne’s CV, the third outing of Spielberg’s resurrected dinos franchise (and first without Spielberg at the helm) ups the dosage of psychodrama, with rich and strange couple William H. Macy and Téa Leoni hiring Sam Neill’s Dr. Alan Grant for a tour of InGen’s latest isle experiment, while concealing secret motives for their trip. Criticized upon release, it looks positively fresh, ingenious, and handmade in the era of careful committee retreads and “legasequels.”
