What About Bob?
Don't hate Bob Schneider because of his Lovely Creatures
Music Story  October 2, 2009, by Margaret Moser
"..."When I was young, I had this idea that if I got successful, that would change my life and everything would be great. Not only have I given up on the idea that that's going to happen to me in a huge way, I've also given up the idea that if it happened, it would matter..."

Even though this documentary about a choral group of lovable octogenarians whose perform songs by Sonic Youth and the Talking Heads sounds gimmicky, it is really about something to which we can all relate: our own mortality.
Film Review  April 18, 2008, by Steve Davis
"...A documentary about a choral group of lovable octogenarians whose repertoire includes songs by Sonic Youth and the Talking Heads? It sounds gimmicky, scary even. But despite an occasional lapse into nudge-nudge jokes about geriatric sex, incontinence, and the driving skills of the elderly, Young@Heart eschews the clichés about old people for something that we can all relate to: our own mortality..."

The Passion of Bob Stoops
DAILY Sports  October 9, 2007, by Joe O'Connell
"...The Sooners, like the Horns, incur a lot of needless penalties. In the end both teams are young and prone to mistakes, not the sort that make it to the national championship game, and not even to the Big 12 title match...."

Arts Story  July 16, 2010, by Robert Faires
"...The native of Detroit arrived in Austin in the Seventies, following stints in Martin, Tenn., where he launched the Vanguard Theatre at the University of Tennessee at Martin, and San Antonio, where he taught theatre at Trinity University and co-founded the First Repertory Company, where he worked with Jaston Williams and Joe Sears early in their careers. Moving up I-35, he served as a professor of drama and theatre arts at Austin Community College and artistic director for the Zachary Scott Theatre Center, where he gave work in the costume shop to a young Stephen MacMillan Moser..."

Fifty years ago, Dylan and the Band went electric at Austin's Municipal Auditorium

In Memory of Bob Eckhardt: 1913-2001
A fighter for justice is remembered by family and friends.
News Story  November 23, 2001, by Michael King
"...Eckhardt's familial obituary gracefully sums up his House career: "Eckhardt was one of the last of a breed of brilliant and eloquent populist politicians who often found themselves in the minority on a variety of issues at the Texas State House. His generation of young liberal politicians essentially wrote the book on effective liberal minority obstructionist politics within a conservative legislative body..."

Somebody Up There Likes Me
Bob Byington's filmed-in-Austin, indie comedy takes place over decades as a guy wanders through life with (scene-stealing) coaching from his best friend, played by Nick Offerman.
Film Review  April 5, 2013, by Leah Churner
"...On the upside, all the right actors are in the right places: Poulson, who had minor roles in Byington's two previous films, plays Max, a drowsy ne'er-do-well, a neo-Dorian Gray whose access to the contents of the aforementioned suitcase keeps him perennially young. Max's stoic attitude behooves him; just look at what happens to his wife, Lyla (Weixler), a once-sweet girl whose optimistic expectations set her up for snowballing bitterness in middle age..."

From the Vaults: Jonathan Demme's Music Docs
Neil Young, Talking Heads, Hitchcock, & the one that got away

A Christmas Story
Ralphie wants nothing more for Christmas than a Red Ryder 200-shot, range-model air rifle, but he must convince Mom and Dad that, if lucky enough to receive this “Holy Grail of Christmas presents,” he won't shoot his eye out.
Film Review  December 16, 1994, by Alison Macor
"...Watching A Christmas Story can help. For those who haven't seen this classic holiday tale, the film tells the story of Ralphie (Billingsley), a young boy who wants nothing more for Christmas than a Red Ryder 200-shot, range-model air rifle..."

Raining Stones
This politically scathing British film by director Ken Loach (Riff-Raff) might best be described as “kitchen-sink comedy,” named after the late-1950s to '60s British school of principled filmmaking that focused...
Film Review  June 10, 1994, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Bob doesn't even last one night as a club bouncer before he becomes the bouncee. Complicating his straits is the fact that he wants to buy his young daughter a new dress for her first communion -- an impossible extravagance that becomes his primary obsession..."

Lost in Translation
Sofia Coppola spins a unique tale about a yearning, indelible love-affair-that-isn’t between characters played by Bill Murray and this season's It Girl Scarlett Johansson.
Film Review  September 26, 2003, by Kimberley Jones
"...We grew up watching him in SNL reruns, crooning about Star Wars, or in goofball comedies like Ghostbusters, cracking wise through a sliming. He always had an edge – my God, that smirk – but as he settles into middle age and enjoys the attentions of a new wave of hugely talented young filmmakers like Wes Anderson and Sofia Coppola, it’s what’s underneath the smirk that counts..."

Cold in July
A dream lineup is one of many treats in this East Texas neo-noir based on a Joe Lansdale book.
Film Review  June 6, 2014, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Still, Richard is sickened by the killing, which resulted, in truth, from his jumpy trigger finger. He foolishly goes to the cemetery to witness the burial, where the dead man’s father, Ben Russell (Shepard) – a rough character who has just been released from prison – threatens the life of Richard’s young son..."

Page Two: A Small Hurricane of Emotions
Jonathan Demme's Bob Marley Stay With the Rhythm pushes beyond the boundaries of the screen
Columns  July 17, 2009, by Louis Black
"...Since his first effort in 1980, the Suburban Lawns doing "Gidget Goes to Hell," he's made any number of music videos and worked with such artists as Bruce Springsteen, Suzanne Vega, the Neville Brothers, New Order, and the Feelies. Along the way, Demme also made a number of longer-form music films, including a short film on Ginger Baker (one of his first directing efforts), Sin City: Artists United Against Apartheid, and Neil Young Trunk Show..."

Stir it Up: Finally, there's an authoritative film biography of Bob Marley.
Film Review  April 20, 2012, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The noted filmmaker was the original director attached to this project before disagreements with the producers led to his replacement by Macdonald. Without knowing any of the details, one might presume that Demme – who is as esteemed for the originality of the music documentaries he has made with such figures as the Talking Heads and Neil Young as he is for his Oscar win for The Silence of the Lambs – proffered an approach that hewed less to the strictly chronological, biographical structure used by Macdonald..."

My Boyfriend's Back
Shot here in Austin and nearby Round Rock under the far better title of Johnny Zombie, this sophomore effort from the previously brilliant Balaban (remember Parents?) takes the notion of...
Film Review  August 13, 1993, by Marc Savlov
"...Balaban apparently thought that this new angle -- boy zombie taken for granted by friends and family -- would be a hoot, and it is for a few minutes, but this slight film ends up becoming more annoying than anything else, and it does that at an alarming pace. Even Lowery, a talented young guy who was one of the best things about last summer's School Ties, seems to have nowhere to go here, trapped in a parody of a cliché with a lousy ending and sub-par zombie effects..."

Midge Ure Completely Solo
Synth-pop Scot on DIY, Band Aid 30, and Ian McLagan
DAILY Music  January 16, 2015, by Tim Stegall
"...I’m kinda giving myself this ridiculous task of touring America completely unaided: No crew, no tour manager, none of the normal people who would point me in the right direction and tell me what to do. I’m experiencing this for myself, so that when I go back to the UK and talk to young songwriters and young musicians who hope to make a living out of it, I can tell them all the pitfalls that I may encounter over the next few months...."

"...On their wedding day in Winnipeg, Canada, 1940, Edna Ragland – "Rassy" – beams, anything but self-conscious, while Scott Young's barely unturned lips cede all curvature to his arched eyebrows and knowing look. Eldest son Bob favors his mother in a family portrait circa 1954, "Say cheese" replaced by pre-Elvis pout..."

Sex Drive
Sex Drive is part endearing emo love story, part gross-out semen gag-fest, and, very occasionally, a smart, inspired, non-sequitur-laden hoot.

"...This tale of two city kids taken on vacation to Glenork, in rural British Columbia, by their cellular phone-addicted, divorced dad is about as old as the Loch Ness legend. Young, lonely Ashley (Wayne) is befriended by Orky, the monster living in the hamlet's glacier-carved lake, after she feeds him Oreos..."

When the Game Stands Tall
It's all teamwork to the impediment of characterization in this sports drama based the 151-game winning streak of high school football coach Bob Ladouceur.
Film Review  August 22, 2014, by Kimberley Jones
"...As a training manual for young athletes on the paramountcy of teamwork, When the Game Stands Tall may be useful viewing, but as a gripping drama, it’s dodgy at best. Loosely based on sportswriter Neil Hayes’ book about high school football coach Bob Ladouceur, who led his De La Salle Spartans to a historic 151-game winning streak, the script (by Scott Marshall Smith) wisely includes the game that broke the streak..."

I'm Not There
This meditation on Bob Dylan is infused with love – not the slavish kind but a true-eyed tribute to the artist who belongs to nobody and everybody at once.
Film Review  November 23, 2007, by Kimberley Jones
"...Starring: Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Marcus Carl Franklin, Richard Gere, Heath Ledger, Ben Whishaw, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Bruce Greenwood, Michelle Williams and Julianne Moore. “I don’t belong to anybody,” goes a verse from the titular song, which may very well be the point, or at least one of them, in a film that was “inspired by the many lives of Bob Dylan.” Nobody here’s named Bob, per se, but we get six incarnations that represent cycles in the life of the artist formally known as Robert Zimmerman, from a young strummer’s worship at the altar of folk to renunciation and his own reluctant ascension to idol status (don’t forget the detours into sex, drugs, and Allen Ginsberg)..."

Papa: Hemingway in Cuba

Jennifer Garner stars in this satire about a woman who'll stop at nothing to win the Iowa state butter-carving competition.
Film Review  October 5, 2012, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...When Laura discovers her husband philandering with a hooker named Brooke (Wilde, who steals every one of her scenes), she decides to retaliate by taking up the trowel herself and entering the contest. Not to be bested, Brooke also enters, although both women’s arteries to success are clogged by the prowess of the butter-carving natural, Destiny (Shahidi), a young African-American orphan living with new foster parents (Corddry and Silverston) in Iowa..."

Niagara, Niagara
Call it “grunge cinema,” “scuzz cinema,” “Gun Crazy cinema,” whatever you like: Two lonely, white-trash adolescents fall in love, shoot guns, commit crimes, and go on the lam, everything ultimately...
Film Review  April 3, 1998, by Steve Davis
"...Regardless, you never feel the urgency of this union of lost souls; their meeting is more happenstance than fateful. With some irony, the film's title (one of the traits of Tourette's syndrome is the repetition of words) refers to the traditional American destination of young lovers, a spectacular place for honeymooners with their whole lives ahead of them..."

Like a Hurricane
Jim Jarmusch + Neil Young + Crazy Horse
Screens Story  November 7, 1997, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Jim Jarmusch (l) and Neil Young Two months have passed since this interview with Jim Jarmusch took place in Toronto. Year of the Horse was the first film I saw after arriving in Canada for the film festival in September and Jarmusch's movie about the music of Neil Young & Crazy Horse set the perfect mood..."

Project Nim
The story of a science experiment in which a chimpanzee was raised as a human child is recounted in this heartbreaking documentary.
Film Review  December 9, 2011, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...“It was the Seventies,” says one of the couple’s children during an interview recorded for the film. (Still, breast-feeding a chimp in public must have been pretty outré, even in New York.) Next, Nim is moved to an estate near Columbia, where he is tended to by research assistants, many of whom are young women who have affairs with Terrace..."

Inside the Texas Wine Trade
Four Texas wineries are joining to launch Texas Fine Wine
Food Story  March 21, 2014, by Wes Marshall
"...Of course, we are a marketing group, not a cooperative winery, so we differ from one another quite a bit as well." Truth is, that's an understatement; their diversity is really an asset. "We are a group of like-minded wineries dedicated to making the best wines possible," Bob Young of Bending Branch told us..."

The Last Mimzy
Solid performances elevate this mild but hardly magical children's sci-fi story.
Film Review  March 23, 2007, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Starring: Chris O'Neil, Rhiannon Leigh Wryn, Joely Richardson, Timothy Hutton, Rainn Wilson, Kathryn Hahn, Michael Clarke Duncan and Kirsten Williamson. This children’s sci-fi movie should be palatable to the young and old alike, yet it’s ultimately more a mild diversion than a magical adventure..."

Batman Begins … and it's about time. The movie is great fun, and also a terrific relief.
Film Review  June 17, 2005, by Marc Savlov
"...Jonathan Crane. Nolan’s film is the first to delve deeply into privileged young Bruce Wayne’s radical, deeply Freudian transformation into Batman..."

By turns a campy goof on 1950s muscle-mag culture, a slackerly attempt at investigative journalism, and a heartfelt elegy to an inscrutable pop-culture obscurity, Thom Fitzgerald's semi-biopic often seems to...
Film Review  January 14, 2000, by Russell Smith
"...Mizer, a doting mama's boy who dressed like Clark Kent's less bohemian brother, espoused a Jack Armstrong-like code of traditional manly virtue and wholesomeness. He was also a closeted homosexual whose world-class feats of artistic sublimation produced as many as a million still photos and countless films featuring oiled and buffed young studs prancing around dressed as bikers, cowboys, Roman centurions, and the like..."

Dangerous Minds
Never mind that the movie's plot is a tired one and that the script doesn't even try to re-work this particular genre's clichés... like Pfeiffer's B-Boy stance on the film's...
Film Review  August 18, 1995, by Joey O'Bryan
"...As far as Pfeiffer's performance goes, she's got charm and pep to spare, but next to zero substance when it comes to exploring her character's particular hypocrisies and pretensions. About the only thing that keeps Dangerous Minds from being a total washout is the humor and energy of the young actors portraying Pfeiffer's students..."

Exit to Eden
There's limburger, there's Roquefort, there's gorgonzola, and there's Exit to Eden. This new film from director Marshall (Beaches) is pure cheese, and stinky cheese at that. It's freely adapted --...
Film Review  October 21, 1994, by Robert Faires
"...It looks like Marshall sought to do for bondage what he did for prostitution in Pretty Woman, i.e., sugar it up to make it yum-yum tasty for the mythical middlebrow masses. Delany is part of the plan: use her wholesome looks and TV image as a China Beach heroine to sell John & Jane Public on the idea that the dominatrix-next-door is just a sweet young miss..."

There Goes My Baby
Summer school has just let out at Westwood High in Los Angeles, casting the last stragglers from the graduating class of 1965 out into the grown-up world. The movie takes...
Film Review  September 9, 1994, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...It pushes historical accuracy by tossing in every aspect of cultural upheaval and then presenting them like a rotating background slide show. Amplifying this narrative sketchiness is the general inexperience of its ensemble cast of young actors, with only Dermot Mulroney and Kelli Williams bringing any real edges to their characters..."
