The Killing of a Sacred Deer
The director of The Lobster returns with another salvo
Film Review  October 27, 2017, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The patriarchy gets another lashing from Yorgos Lanthimos in his latest film allegory The Killing of a Sacred Deer. The Greek filmmaker takes no prisoners in this story that is loosely connected to the Greek myth of Iphigenia, who was sacrificed to the gods by her father King Agamemnon..."

How to Kill a Sacred Deer
Barry Keoghan on good, evil, and Colin Farrell's beard
DAILY Screens  October 27, 2017, by Richard Whittaker
"...The idea of a vengeful god is not about supernatural cruelty: It instead adds some logic to the capricious whims of an unfeeling universe. When, as in The Killing of a Sacred Deer, that divine wrath comes from Barry Keoghan as a reserved but determined teenager, then a blindly arbitrary cosmos may seem preferable...."

Homeless Deer
Postmarks  April 23, 2004

Austin: Destroying Deer Habitat Since at Least the 19th Century
Postmarks  May 3, 2004
"...Dear Editor, Elisabeth Ruggles laments homeless deer bleating in distress outside her apartment, saying development demolished their habitat for "whatever it is [developers] are going to build" ["Postmarks," April 30]. Sympathizing with her broken heart, I hope she seriously considers its cause, gets it repaired, and moves on with her life..."

Out of the Furnace
The writer/director of Crazy Heart returns with an all-star cast for his sophomore effort, which takes place amid the rusted-out lives of America's steel belt.
Film Review  December 13, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...– one of many that belched smoke into the skies of the towns throughout America’s Rust Belt, leaving a permanent fog of gray soot in the atmosphere that grows ever more bleak as the mills and factories continue to downsize and close, leaving the region’s workers as hopeless as the landscape. With its settings and themes, the film that Out of the Furnace calls to mind more than any other is The Deer Hunter...."

This suburban melodrama arrives with an impressive pedigree but little originality.
Film Review  May 1, 2009, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...First-time director Martini co-wrote the script with his brother Steven, but the story, apart from using Lyme disease as a metaphor for the vague discontent that ails us all (or ailed us, since the film is set in the late Seventies), sheds little new light on our fatuous lives. Lymelife comes across as though someone tossed The Ice Storm, The Deer Hunter, and The Squid and the Whale in a blender and punched puree: The result is more watered-down mash than solid substance..."

Open Season
The animated Open Season is long on manic energy and bathroom humor but short on real storytelling, emotion, and characters.
Film Review  September 29, 2006, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...Open Season follows this formula to the letter; for directors Allers, Culton, and Stacchi, there’s obviously safety in box-office numbers. Open Season’s tale of a domesticated grizzly bear, Boog (Lawrence); his sidekick, Elliot (an antic mule deer voiced by Kutcher); and their quest to find their way back home after being deposited deep in the woods – fighting off a delusional hunter and becoming best friends as they go – is long on manic energy and bathroom humor but short on real storytelling, emotion, or characters..."

The Ring Two
Narrative listlessness and a lack of scares makes this mother-and-son reunion a shabby affair.
Film Review  March 25, 2005, by Marc Savlov
"...The Ring Two suffers from narrative listlessness and a general sense of "so what?" Worse than that, however, is the utter lack of scares. This is, after all, a horror film, and one expects at least one or two good frissons along the way, but no, the creepiest scene we get involves an angry deer and a lonely forest road..."

Silver City
John Sayles adds his cinematic two cents to this election year’s plethora of politically minded movies.
Film Review  September 17, 2004, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...In Silver City the locale is Colorado and the subject is a fictitious gubernatorial campaign. The candidate is Dickie Pilager, who is brilliantly played by Chris Cooper (Adaptation) in a near mimicry of the speech patterns of our current grammatically challenged president and his deer-caught-in-the-headlights look whenever the discussion strays off script..."

Film Review  June 26, 1998, by Marc Savlov
"...Once there, Jimmy stumbles on the summer home of the ravioli kingpin, and, well, trouble naturally ensues. Shot in the traditional NYC grit-o-vision, Veronis manages to keep things light and breezy until about a third of the way through, when the film takes a turn into the netherworld of deer-laden dream imagery and mano-a-mano emotional meltdown..."

The War at Home
It's one of those terrific behind-the-scenes snafus Hollywood manages to pull on occasion: a major studio fails to give any significant marketing push to a small, powerfully affecting film, partly...
Film Review  May 16, 1997, by Marc Savlov
"...All four of the leads are perfect here, with Bates' high-strung, petulant Maurine Collier coming across as June Cleaver gone to hell, and Sheen's patriarch a no-nonsense all-American dad, clueless in the face of this wartime broadside that's engulfed his precious home. The War at Home isn't perfect; at times an overt preachiness comes to the fore, and Jeremy's backstory sometimes seems thin and questionable, but those minor quibbles aside, it's undoubtedly one of the most riveting portrayals of Vietnam's impact on the American family since Michael Cimino's The Deer Hunter..."

Speedy Ortiz
Foil Deer (Carpark)
Music Story  November 5, 2015, by Libby Webster
"...Massachusetts outfit Speedy Ortiz's sophomore album is a biting, brooding affair: a Nineties feminist soundscape stippled with dissonance often verging on sinister, and wielding brainy guitar lines and lyrics. The tracks on Foil Deer thus hover between vulnerable and aggressive..."

Safety in Words
If there is drama in Laura Furman's stories, Robin Bradford writes, it is not usually the life and death kind. It is the daily, wearing, ineffable drama of living as a human island among others who invariably seem more attractive, more connected, or simply more "normal."

Wasted Wildlife?
Are diseased elk imported to Texas a threat to Texas wildlife?
News Story  November 9, 2001, by Dan Oko
"...Over the past few years, elk ranches across the country have seen a rise in the number of reported instances of CWD, a fatal disease related to Mad Cow Disease that causes elk and deer to lose weight, slobber, and act strangely. The elk ranches either provide "canned hunts," breed the animals for meat or to sell to other ranchers, or in some cases harvest their antlers, which are used in Asian medicine and are considered quite valuable..."

SXSW Film Reviews
Like The Sweet Hereafter, red deer is a meditative tale of loss and redemption which seeks answers in the unexplained events of everyday life. Unlike that 1997 critics favorite, however, red deer lacks the visual appeal to sustain this slowgoing narrative.

"...Squirrels you would expect to encounter on the grounds of Laguna Gloria, and perchance deer or even the odd fox, but feral hogs? And they don't just happen to be there; they've been imported to the spot by the Austin Museum of Art-Arthouse, which wants you to come on over and nuzzle up to the beasts. You needn't fear getting gored or trampled, though; these "tush hogs," as they're colloquially known down South, have no tusks or even legs..."
