"...Editor's note: On Friday and Saturday, Chronicle Associate News Editor Lee Nichols will be keeping an up-to-the-minute blog of the Texas Relays for Track & Field News magazine. The second day of the Texas Relays was the Diana Pickler show. The Washington State senior and Texas native – who won the Relays heptathlon title in 2005, only to lose it to her teammate/sister Julie last year – continued her momentum from yesterday and finished the seven-event contest with 6,205 points, well ahead of UT-San Antonio's Ryanne Dupree (5,818) and Julie (5,734)..."

Film Review  June 26, 1998, by Marc Savlov
"...Veronis' first feature is a strange amalgam of New York City deadpan schtick and edgy drama that never quite gels but isn't nearly as grating as the dark and dingy camerawork might make you think. It's part The Daytrippers and part Weekend at Bernie's, with more than a little indie chutzpah thrown in for good measure..."

The people who make and sell comic books had no way of knowing whether the public's interest in Spider-Man onscreen would generate any appetite for the wall-crawler in his four-color form, but this seemed like one way to find out..."

"...Or maybe not. DeCillo's second feature (his first being the underrated Brad Pitt vehicle Johnny Suede) is a caustic, witty, nightmarish look at what goes into the making of an indie film, from the endless screw-ups that transpire as the crew battles with backbiting, egomaniacal stars run amok, sexual politics on and off the set, and all the little horrors of day-to-day filmmaking on a shoestring budget..."

20,000 Days on Earth
This documentary (for which Nick Cave receives a script credit), gets inside the artist's notoriously fussy creative process.
starstarstarhalfstar
Film Review  October 3, 2014, by Marc Savlov
"...Kith and kin to the likes of Leonard Cohen and his much-admired Nina Simone, Cave remains, at 57, a quietly explosive presence whether onstage or off, a duality that becomes apparent here as we’re offered access to the various creative stages, from notebook birth to demo recording to live performance of the title track from the 2013 Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds album Push the Sky Away. Directors Forsyth and Pollard employ a simulacrum of the singer-songwriter/screenwriter/novelist’s literal 20,000th day alive to capture the sum of the parts of the whole of Cave’s work and world in a remarkably fascinating and strangely accessible way..."

Film Review  January 12, 2007, by Marrit Ingman
"...This true-crime yarn beaded with hot, young actors is like watching McG’s Fastlane on Xanax. Because it has the Cassavetes label and premiered at last year's Sundance, it flaunts a certain indie cred (also look for Harry Dean Stanton, who seems to have been rented by the day), but this film is way more about tits and ass and drugs and guns and California muscle cars and busting up house parties with kung fu than it is about deep characterization on the epic scale of Scarface..."

"...Based on the book by Austin writer/philanthropist Turk Pipkin and produced by Austin’s Elizabeth Avellán (Spy Kids, Sin City), this sugarcoated Christmas tale is reminiscent of an old Roy Rogers movie, a musical Western with a moral message – except that this version features Willie Nelson as a modern-day singing cowboy and saint (aptly named Nick). Filmed in Bastrop and in and around Austin, McCanlies’ newest work is an eye- and ear-candy treat for locals and live-music fans appreciative of Austin’s music roots and folksy allure..."
