Like some of its characters, 'Violet Tendencies' at times is a little much, from the wild sex parties and “biss”-stained textiles (don’t ask) to bawdy references to the female anatomy. Its saving graces, though, are the snarky one-liners, dazzling views of New York City and Mindy Cohn’s...More>>

King's Speech, The (Blu-ray Review)   27 Apr, 2011

Leave it to German verisimilitude nearly 70 years ago to one-up the current fascination for posting videos of abhorrent human behavior on TV or the Web. (Street Date 3/8/11)More>>

Queen, The (DVD Review)   15 Apr, 2007

The quiet tug between modernism and tradition is at play in 'The Queen,' an excellent film that uses the extraordinary occasion of Princess Diana's death in 1997 to examine the monarchy's role in a populist society. More>>

Two in the Wave (DVD Review)   14 Mar, 2011

With Jean-Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut as its stars, their dual collaborator Jean-Pierre Leaud as a featured player, historical tide changing (cinematic and political) plus film clips galore, there’s no way this biographical documentary about the French New Wave can fail to be interesting,...More>>

Behind the Burly Q (DVD Review)   11 Apr, 2011

On balance, the mostly aged former burlesque strippers that filmmaker Leslie Zemeckis interviews for this talking-heads remembrance claim to have had a jolly good time of it and speak of the now quaint old profession with fondness. (Street Date 4/12/11)More>>
