Mini's First Time

Mini's First Time

In life, there are perpetual ups and downs. Example: After playing Lex Luthor with enough menacing glee to sustain a franchise let alone one film, Kevin Spacey goes and puts his hard earned time and...

Kiss Me Again

Kiss Me Again

William Tyler Smith filmed most of his second film Kiss Me Again in Williamsburgh, Brooklyn; the same place where I make my residence. It's a small section of Brooklyn that houses hipsters, young post-college parents,...

Who Killed the Electric Car?

Who Killed the Electric Car?

According to everyone, from Al Gore to Michael Moore to Oliver Stone, in the not so distant future, we're all going to bear witness to a mighty big shit storm (academics have adorably nicknamed this...

Lemming

Lemming

The plight and paranoia of young marriage (and adulthood) has found a giddy practitioner in German director Dominik Moll. Moll's second film, With a Friend Like Harry..., took a very direct approach to the idea...

Bandidas

Bandidas

In the history of really silly wigs, Dwight Yoakam's long, crimped black hair in Bandidas has gone and snuck its way into the top ten. It's part of the silliness of the film that stops...

Kinky Boots

Kinky Boots

I'd like to believe that my heart is open to even the most ill-conceived of English charmers. By all technical merits, both 2003's Love Actually and 2005's Layer Cake are absolute garbage, but if either...

The Notorious Bettie Page

The Notorious Bettie Page

Whether she knew it or not, Bettie Page was breaking a lot of taboos when she started posing in bondage films and photos (maybe she knew but just decided to not care?). Current trends in...

London

There are basic things that constitute a successful script by Hollywood standards. Remember, I said successful, not good or terrible, just successful. The main character must go through certain actions and must change is the...

Who's Camus Anyway?

Who's Camus Anyway?

Cry_wolf

AOL Instant Messenger has denied me the following screennames on the basis that someone else has them: "Bicker4," "PhantomK678," "GrizzMan," "Korgon27," "Giglifan2," and "PandaBear." Besides the heartbreak that I suffered because I couldn't express my...

Manderlay

Manderlay

You should be very suspicious of anyone who owns Dogville and no other Lars Von Trier film. It's a ruse, a hoax, and a ploy, a way for that pretentious NYU philosophy major with the...

Oliver Twist

Oliver Twist

At the end of a good year, I will have read three books. This has nothing to do with any sort of laziness or lack of literary enjoyment; this is simply my quota. When I...

Edward Scissorhands

If anyone, Tim Burton needs a serious haircut. In most interviews, he looks like he's been dragged from a two week bender (got a better explanation for those obnoxious shades?). For a man who has...
