Boris: Heavy Rocks
The essential Boris
DAILY Music  June 26, 2008, by Austin Powell
"...Tracking down every album released by Boris makes finding a needle in a haystack seem like a time (and cost) efficient endeavor. The Japanese trio has released countless recordings through labels on both sides of the Atlantic, from Drag City, Important, and Hydra Head in the U.S..."

Farewell, Boris
Boris drummer Atsuo breaks the sound (and language) barrier.
DAILY Music  March 23, 2007, by Austin Powell
"...Even watching Boris soundcheck during South by Southwest felt like a blessing from the southern lord. The Japanese trio, who played their only U.S..."

Levitation Live Shot: Boris, Sunn O))), Sleep
An endurance test of both appreciation and relief
DAILY Music  May 1, 2016, by Michael Toland
"...Originally scheduled to share the Levitation Tent on Saturday night, Boris, Sunn 0))), and headliner Sleep instead took over a sold-out Mohawk last night for five hours of droning doom...."

Spotlight: Boris
Japenese metal trio Boris lurch into drone
Music Story  March 16, 2007, by Austin Powell
"..."Maybe we connect to the world with drone music," posits Atsuo, drummer and vocalist for Japanese metal trio Boris, via e-mail and a translator. "It's the impression of chaotic sound..."

Austin Psych Fest Live (Saturday): Boris/Masaki Batoh’s Brain Pulse Music
Mad scientists and psych-rock hurricanes
DAILY Music  April 28, 2013, by Michael Toland
"...Taking a break from its last few years’ worth of work with guitar god Michio Kurihara, Boris has been touring the States with a two-pronged show that’s one part experimental drone, with an emphasis on its early LP Flood, and one part more overtly song-oriented material. Given the furious psych rawk hurricane the band usually dispenses, the overall mellow vibe to this set came as a welcome surprise...."

Mabuta no Ura
The Japanese rainbow spectrum of Boris' amplifier worship
Music Story  June 27, 2008, by Austin Powell
"...A mask of gray smoke clouds the Mohawk stage, thickening the mid-October air. The three members of Boris slowly crystallize out of the haze, as if stepping through the gauze of a parallel universe..."

Step Inside
The Cult’s Ian Astbury on Boris and "The End"
DAILY Music  September 10, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...Two nights after Boris and SunnO))) served Sunday communion, ATP presented an encore rendition of Altar at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple. The occasion also served as the world premiere of Boris’ new collaboration with the Cult's Ian Astbury, BXI, an unlikely meeting point between the Japanese trio’s Heavy Rocks and the latter’s operatic brooding...."

Within These Walls
A chat with Damon Krukowski and Michio Kurihara.
DAILY Music  October 19, 2007, by Austin Powell
"...Progressing from their work in seminal shoegaze group Galaxie 500, the movements are accentuated once more with the peripheral brushstrokes of Michio Kurihara’s electric guitar. Off the Record recently spoke with Damon Krukowski about communicating with Kurihara, the influence of Frank Sinatra, and sharing a bill with Japan’s doom masters Boris..."

The Seagull
Chekhov's tale of Muscovite misery takes unsteady flight.

Film Review  June 1, 2018, by Steve Davis
"...He shines the spotlight on even the most peripheral of players at least once during the course of each of his works. The standouts here are a snaky Stoll as the passively manipulative Boris, Irina’s handsome and accomplished paramour who becomes Konstantin’s rival for the affections of the the naive Nina (Ronan), and Moss’ amazing turn as the vodka-swilling, snuff-snorting Masha..."

The Mummy
Tom Cruise does the monster mash

Film Review  June 9, 2017, by Marc Savlov
"...Not counting 2004’s execrable Van Helsing, this umpteenth iteration of the 1932 Boris Karloff shocker is Universal’s initial foray into rebooting their classic movie monsters, now dubbed “Dark Universe.” It’s big, it’s slick, it’s very, very Hollywood, but it’s just not that good a film. It’s not even as much fun – and monster movies, as opposed to horror movies, should be fun – as the 1999 Brendan Fraser vehicle of the same name...."

Pawn Sacrifice
Fictionalized tale of famed chess bout between Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky
starstar
Film Review  September 25, 2015, by Kimberley Jones
"...You don’t exactly have to go searching for Bobby Fischer in this fictionalized account of the chess master’s world championship bout against the Soviet Boris Spassky – Fischer fills nearly every frame of the film, from nervous boy genius to troubled teen genius to paranoiac racist adult genius. Tobey Maguire plays him in this latter incarnation..."

Mood Indigo
Michel Gondry's latest presents us with an elaborate yet handmade artifice that's thoroughly charming until its color drains away.

Film Review  August 15, 2014, by Kimberley Jones
"...For a short while they live an especially charmed life, surrounded by witty and attentive friends. The blindingly charismatic Nicolas (Sy) is counsel and in many ways caretaker to the daffy pair, while new lovers Chick (Elmaleh) and Alise (Maïga) bond over their shared love of the philosopher “Jean-Sol Partre.” (The film is adapted from the 1947 novel L’Écume des Jours by the French surrealist Boris Vian, a contemporary of Sartre.)..."

Frankenweenie
Tim Burton’s animated, black-and-white movie about a boy and his dog is sweetly filtered through the lens of Frankenstein and other famous monsters.

Film Review  October 5, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...Rzykruski (Ed Wood's Bela Lugosi himself, Martin Landau) – mainly that electricity is a life-giving force. Luckily, Victor's hometown of New Holland has an abundance of thunderstorms, and before you can say "Boris Karloff's real name was William Henry Pratt!", a stitched-and-neck-bolted Sparky is re-animated and running around Vincent's attic laboratory..."

Men in Black 3
Josh Brolin's spooky good impersonation of the younger Tommy Lee Jones is the only fresh thing happening in this sequel.

Film Review  May 25, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...I won't bore you with the plot details. Suffice it to say, Agent J (Will Smith, aging in reverse, apparently) must travel back in time to July 16, 1969 (Google it) to prevent an invasion of the present-day planet Earth by an alien armada led by Boris "the Animal" (played by Flight of the Conchords’ Clement, buried under inches of foam rubber)..."

Whatever Works
Confessions of a cranky misanthrope.

Film Review  July 3, 2009, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...After five years of making films abroad, Allen returns to his old stomping grounds of Manhattan for his latest comedy, Whatever Works. The lead character, Boris Yellnikoff, is a familiar Allen curmudgeon, but instead of casting himself as he so often does, Allen this time casts Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm’s David as his onscreen narrator substitute (who, in typical Allen film mode, frequently speaks directly to the audience)..."

The Brothers Bloom
Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo are cast as the best con men in the world whose current swindle involves an eccentric heiress (Rachel Weisz) in this sophomore effort by the writer/director of Brick.

Film Review  May 29, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...His nervy debut, Brick, was a high school suburban noir: Dashiell Hammett in the mouths of babes and a house of cards fixed to tumble at the first strong wind (surprise: it never did). His follow-up, a con-man caper with the spiritual prints of Paper Moon, Butch Cassidy, and Boris and Natasha, isn’t as strenuously cerebral as Brick – still, gold stars for anybody who catches the filmmaker’s references to Joyce and Homer – nor does it, in the end, altogether hang together..."

Film Review  June 30, 2000, by Marc Savlov
"...Squirrel (voiced by June Foray) and Bullwinkle J. Moose (voiced by Keith Scott) return after a 35-year absence in this wildly uneven but occasionally hilarious updating that takes the animated duo and pits them once again against their arch-nemeses Natasha Fatale (Russo), Boris Badanov (Alexander), and Fearless Leader (De Niro) -- though this time the baddies are, obviously, flesh and blood characters..."

This second installment in what looks to be an ongoing series is about as “family entertainment” as you can get. Granted, sometimes that's a good thing, but when the directors...

Film Review  August 21, 1998, by Marc Savlov
"...Josh also learns the value of trusting the new man in his mother's life and so on, but director Martin (helmer of many Highlander episodes) is working from a bit of a pulpit, allowing for none of the subtlety that should flow seamlessly from the work. Instead, he plays the comedic elements broadly, with the likes of SNL alum Dunn and Anzilotti as a pair of Boris and Natasha-esque Russkie no-goodniks out to capture Buddy and force him to perform in their traveling circus..."
