Warm Welcome Waiting for Deviant, Morally Blind Neoleftist Ideologues If They Just Agree With Letter Writer
Postmarks  January 23, 2006
"...20 “Page Two,” "Prayer for the Common Man," you are guilty of astounding ignorance “howling up from this country out of the confusion of cheap rhetoric, meaningless polemics, and secularly driven holy visions.” This is evident by you and your fellow travelers consistently advocating ideologies any rational person would find mortally reprehensible, e.g., “neoleftist utopians, moral-relativist Marxists, and suicidal pacifist, chic anarchists.” Moreover, in your ideological delusions there is no “masquerading as equivocating, multicultural liberals/Democrats.” You are clearly self-described and mired in the fever swamp of pathological naiveté. History has proven these deviant neoleftist ideologies as genocidal..."

Rational Discourse: Neoleftist Utopian, Deviant Ideologies, Moral Malignancy, Fellow Travelers
Postmarks  November 9, 2005
"...Black is a neoleftist utopian who clings to moral relativism as the key ingredient to understanding the meaning of life. This makes it convenient for him and his ilk to find sympathy, tolerance, and acceptance of deviant ideologies such as Marxism, suicidal pacifism, anarchic chic, equivocating multiculturalism, and whatever ideology the mavens of social fashion may deem as admirable..."

The Defiant Deviant
The Austin Film Society and Alamo Drafthouse gang up for Bloodbath and Beyond: The Extreme Cinema of Takashi Miike and more
Screens Story  February 25, 2005, by Wells Dunbar

The Shape of Water
An unconventional love story from one of the best fabulists
Film Review  December 8, 2017, by Marc Savlov
"...No brief synopsis of The Shape of Water can fully convey the power of del Toro’s rhapsodically transgressive paeon to what society would deem deviant or amoral. Audiences familiar with his previous work, however, will discern a thematic streak that runs throughout the director’s filmography, increasingly humanist and humane the more it deals with nonhuman characters..."

Escape From Tomorrow
Shot guerrilla-style at Disneyland and Disney World, this surreal drama about a man's mental disintegration at "the happiest place on Earth" lands a spitball in the Mouse's eye.
Film Review  October 11, 2013, by Marc Savlov
"...Thrillingly, the film’s many minor imperfections – its no-budget camerawork, for example – work in its favor, messing with the audience’s head just as much as its out-of-control protagonist. Borderline deviant sexual imagery is everywhere, and you’ll never again look at Mickey’s phallically four-fingered hand in the same way...."

The Omen
Julia Stiles is miscast, although Mia Farrow delights in this unnecessary remake of a perfectly good child-as-Antichrist movie.
Film Review  June 9, 2006, by Marc Savlov
"...As Mrs. Baylock, the Antichrist's anti-Mary Poppins, she uses her own whippet-thin frame to gleeful, deviant effect..."

The Replacements
Everybody loves underdogs. Their stories inspire timeless tales, those of individuals who defy the odds, break all barriers, and become immortal -- if only for a moment. Usually the hero...
Film Review  August 11, 2000, by Kimberley Jones
"...The movie belongs to his rag-tag team of reprobates. Each is given his moment to shine, and shine they all do in their own deviant ways..."

Rock Opera
Locally filmed micro-budget feature tells a picaresque story about a punk guitarist who is trying to sell enough pot to finance a low-rent tour for his band. His journey instead takes him on a tour through the college-town underground.
Film Review  September 3, 1999, by Russell Smith
"...Starring: Jerry Don Clark, Ted Jarrell, Russell Porter, Paul Wright, Chad Holt, Rob Gasper and Louis Olmeda. This bracingly sordid slice of microbudget punk-rock cinema from Super-8 maestro Bob Ray makes it clear that, despite a step up to 16mm, the Austin-based, self-taught filmmaker hasn't compromised much of the flagrantly deviant sensibility he flaunted in earlier opuses such as Night of the Kung Fu Zombie Bastards From Hell! and Cocaine Ninja..."

Deviant Craft: False Fabric
Arts Review  June 13, 1997
"...Some are more aware that each carefully spun thread adds to a much larger picture and that each thread must mesh with the ones near it, otherwise the whole creation is full of deep rents and ragged holes. Which is why Deviant Craft, produced by Frontera@Hyde Park Theatre, is so amazing..."

The AggreGAYtor: September 6
Your daily dose of LGBTQ news
DAILY The Gay Place  September 6, 2012, by Brandon Watson
"...• Although I bristle at the idea of Franciscan University including homosexuality in a “deviant behavior” course, I kind of want to enroll. I could always use a few pointers...."

Top Ten Stage
Top Ten Theatrical Experiences of 1997
Arts Story  January 9, 1998, by Robert Faires
"...Deviant Craft (Frontera@Hyde Park Theatre), for the bold spirit of its actors and their mad, often hysterical attempts at "performing" The Tempest...."

Avengers: Infinity War
Earth's mightiest heroes face their greatest, most nuanced threat.
Film Review  April 27, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...But most importantly, this is Thanos' film, and under the makeup and CG, this is Brolin (previously glimpsed only in moments of menace and manipulation) striding through like a brilliant, broken force of nature. He conveys in flickers of emotion that his deviant mind is convinced he is the true hero, and that sundered worlds are just an inevitable cost of doing the right thing...."

GayBiGayGay showstoppers DavO and Krylon Superstar – aka Double Duchess – just can't quit us
Features Story  September 6, 2013, by Rob Cohen
"...The in-demand duo of Krylon Superstar and David "DavO" Richardson are one of the hottest acts on the queer circuit. Their raw, bold beats and brazenly queer, sex-positive messages on their debut EP Hey Girl! and their current booty bangers "Bucket Betch" and "Deviant" have taken them from the bedroom, where they created their first song on a whim, to stages across the country..."

Gang of Four
Kyle Henry's 'Fourplay' fights expectations about what sex should look like onscreen
Screens Story  February 8, 2013, by Brandon Watson
"...It's so often a titillating diversion, but it's not observed in detail to see how sexual acts can be transformative." With that in mind, he gave his two screenwriters, Jessica Hedrick and Henry's romantic partner, Carlos Treviño, a challenge. "I knew I wanted to make four short films that dealt with deviance and deviant sexual behavior," Henry says, "so I asked them what sort of sex they found deviant and what sort of characters would be able to subvert stereotypes..."

I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell
This collegiate coming-of-age comedy is about as exciting as near-beer.
Film Review  September 25, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Gosse's adaptation of twentysomething miscreant Tucker Max's bestselling chronicle of his debauched, sozzled, and epically uncool life story thus far (a follow-up is forthcoming) is, like its willfully antagonistic protagonist, something of a train wreck. A movie full of deviant behavior and random, testosterone-fueled, sex-mad chaos is no great sin in terms of Seventies-era National Lampoon filmmaking, of course..."

The new film from the South Korean director of Oldboy is a stunning feast for the senses but veers off-track with its overlong meditation on vampirism.
Film Review  August 14, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Thirst is alive with passion, to be sure. The priest, played by the excellent Song (The Host), and his reluctant paramour and eventual ally-cum-nemesis (Kim Ok-vin) are another strata of Park's continuing fascination with righteously deviant sexuality, but the film itself, shrouded as it is in equidistant subplots both hilarious and horrifying, is, at its core, unalive..."

Not reviewed at press time. Stars Çuba Gooding Jr. and Helen Mirren as passionate yet unlikely lovers, as well as assassins and stepmother and stepson. And if that's not enough drama, one of them also has a fatal disease.
Film Review  August 4, 2006, by Brian Clark
"...But what Daniels lacks in narrative ability, he attempts to make up for in shock value. Stylized violence and deviant erotica come in heavy doses, but it’s all soaked in pointed symbolism that makes Spielberg’s infamous orgasm/massacre juxtaposition in Munich seem as subtle as an Ozu film..."

Saw is indeed a horror movie, but not necessarily in the manner the filmmakers intended.
Film Review  October 29, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...James Wan’s directorial debut arrives with so much hype surrounding it that nothing in the film could ever be as shocking as the realization of just how undeserved that buzz actually is. Horror aficionados have been hearing for so long now about how distressing, disturbing, and downright deviant Saw was going to be that the level of anticipation was well-nigh on a par with any George Lucas project..."

How to Weave a Hanging Jury
Juror selection may explain the glaring racial bias in capital convictions
News Story  April 9, 2004, by Rita Radostitz
"...Young's recent article in the academic journal Deviant Behavior, "Guilty Until Proven Innocent: Conviction Orientation, Racial Attitudes, and Support for Capital Punishment," asserts that the process of jury selection in capital cases results in the selection of jurors who are generally in favor of the death penalty and thus has a significant impact on both convictions and death sentences...."

The Long Incubation of the Incubus
Playwright David Hancock and director Vicky Boone reveal how they developed the play The Incubus Archives over six years, through 11 sometimes radically different versions.
Arts Story  October 4, 2002, by Robert Faires
"...VB: I'm going to track it really quickly in my head: We got the draft in '96, then we did [Hancock's play] Deviant Craft in '97. In '97 we also worked on [Hancock's play] Race of the Ark Tattoo in Minneapolis, and then we worked on Race in Austin in '98, and at the end of '98 we segued back to this project..."
