Border Crossing
AFS Essential Cinema presents 3 Mexicanas en Hollywood
Screens Story  December 28, 2007, by Belinda Acosta
"...So it's a treat to see Vélez's first feature film in the series, 1927's The Gaucho, starring the legendary Douglas Fairbanks. It's almost impossible to take your eyes off the charming and agile Fairbanks (here, playing a wily leader of a band of bandits), but Vélez absolutely sparkles, matching him, frame for frame, with her own commanding screen presence..."

Screens Story  December 3, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...Kirby Warnock's documentary "Border Bandits" examines this thoroughly whitewashed era in Texas history through the eyes and voice of his late grandfather Roland Warnock, who witnessed the murder of two unarmed Hispanic men, 68-year-old Jesus Bazan and Antonio Longoria, by a group of Texas Rangers on Sept. 30, 1915..."

The Bicycle Thief
Screens Story  July 25, 1997
"...But what about darker, more politically oriented classical Hollywood movies that passed themselves off as melodramas, or noirs, or Westerns --anything but what their displaced subject matter subtly articulated? Case in point is 1952's Western Rancho Notorious (D: Fritz Lang; with Marlene Dietrich, Arthur Kennedy, Mel Ferrer), which for a first-time, contemporary viewer should do far more than raise eyebrows. Here's a flick about a mysterious ranch hideout known only to those few in the know as Chuck-a-luck, in which Marlene Dietrich plays Altar Keane, a former good-time girl of the Wild West who runs a ring of bandits given sanctuary at the ranch as long as they give Dietrich the obligatory 10 percent cut..."

Slouching Towards Gomorrah
At the Intersection of Jazz and Lounge
Music Story  June 6, 1997, by Michael Bertin
"...Yet, even if nobody delves any further into the music or buys any CDs, even if it's Absolut and not Blue Note making out like bandits, even if nobody drops a dime into the music once they leave the club, again, the people are there and they are there in large numbers. There is a tremendous opportunity for players to capitalize on this lounge trend, or this contagious pretension, or this synthetic nostalgia and revivalism, or whatever it is...."

"...They have brutal roads, with lots of dead animals and crazy driving. They [the crew's Ethiopian handlers] were keen that we wouldn't travel the roads at night because of bandits, they wanted us to get out before nightfall..."

Anthology horror from Mexico
DAILY Screens  November 10, 2015, by Richard Whittaker
"...By contrast, Edgar Nito's "Jaral de Berrios" is a period piece of horses and repeating rifles with two bandits in the desert. Bar the gruesomeness of the bullet hole one has in his gut, this doesn't immediately seem like horror fodder..."

The highlight of the journey will be a Halloween Train Robbery, where in a surprising twist of fate, the "bandits" will stick up the passengers to pass out treats and goodies! Also of interest are the many creatures that begin to stir in the evening hours at the zoo..."

(Re)learning Japanese
One was a hardworking Renaissance man, a student of literature. The other was a hard-living military veteran, a cameraman-in-training who stumbled into acting after his grizzled mug and gruff mien won a talent search. Together, Akira Kurosawa and Toshiro Mifune created some of the Japanese cinema's most enduring treasures.

"...The film's most direct descendant is The Magnificent Seven, but it resonates throughout the action and adventure genres: in Reservoir Dogs, in The Wild Bunch, in Delta Force, in countless movies about sieges and soldiers of fortune. (Washington Post critic Desson Howe calls it "the greatest action movie ever made.") A village, beset by bandits, recruits seven ronin for defense, offering food as payment..."

Rory Cochrane in Love & a .45 Love and a .45
Screens Story  November 8, 1996
"...A recent, homegrown addition to a long line of films in the lovers-on-the-lam genre, Love and a .45 is smaller than most; the simplicity of the script freshens a plot we've seen so many times before. This is not to say the film isn't over-the-top in the character department -- following bumbling yet likeable trailer-home bandits Starlene and Watty Watts as they run for the border leaves us laughing even in the face of a considerable amount of violence..."
