Taste of Cherry
Film Review October 16, 1998, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Exactly what we are to make of the men's successive increase in age or their different warring nationalities is obscure. Perhaps the same could be said for the unstated motives of Badii, who never explains or justifies what had led to his momentous decision (although 90 minutes in that bleak landscape might be enough to drive anyone to the final exit -- it's not insignificant that Badii's gravesite is next to the only tree on the horizon)..."
The Sixth Street Load-In Policy
Music Story May 1, 1998, by Christopher Hess
"..."We made the alleys on the north and south sides of Sixth Street commercial loading zones specifically for the use of band people on nights when the street is closed - to use them as a way to load and unload their equipment in the clubs. Clubs are required by fire standards to have more than one exit, and that's usually a rear exit, and that's where they need to go."..."
City of Angels
Film Review April 17, 1998, by Steve Davis
For many cinephiles, the notion of an Americanized remake of Wim Wenders' haunting film about an angel that aspires to become human, Wings of Desire, is nothing short of blasphemous....
"...While the storyline is more or less the same -- witnessing the mysteries of the human race, a celestial spirit yearns for mortal experience -- the emphasis in City of Angels is more on simple romance than lofty questions of eternity. Set in Los Angeles rather than Berlin, the film's first half appropriates a few of the visual and aural concepts of Wenders' work, although the sight of angels resting on a freeway exit sign, as opposed to perched atop the Reichstag eagle, is a less arresting one..."

Film Review August 22, 1997, by Marc Savlov
A spaceship returns to Earth after seven years in limbo.
"...Event Horizon is an amusing foray into the cloudy realm of sci-fi/horror hybrids, if only because you can catch a glimpse of the occasional shamefaced parent leading a squalling and terrified tot out of the theatre and over to the slightly less gory Free Willy 3 that's unspooling next door. There were indeed several walkouts at the Event Horizon screening I attended, most of which were attributable to families who obviously had not a clue what they were letting themselves in for, though I suspect more than a few folks chose to exit thanks in part to Phillip Eisner's glaring over-reliance on horror show clichés and Fishburne's frightening and perpetually knitted brow..."
A Lone Star's Path to Heaven's Gate
May 16, 1997
"..."No way was this their choice," says John Knapp of Trancenet, a "cult awareness" website, "This was murder." But there is little possibility that the members were literally murdered. The Heaven's Gate website refers to the "laying down" of bodies, and the willful shedding of "containers," and the members made "exit statements" on video..."

The Brady Bunch Movie
Film Review February 24, 1995, by Steve Davis
"...The cast has a good time, with some of the performances uncannily capturing the originals: Christine Taylor is a dead ringer for Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia on television, while Cole's cadence and delivery sound eerily like the late Robert Reed, who played Mike Brady, the architect who designed a house with only one bathroom for six kids. Special mention should also go to Smart as the lush living next door, who lusts after every Brady with a penis (her exit line to Greg and Peter about making a sandwich is inspired beyond belief), and to RuPaul, who works it as a junior high school guidance counselor who relishes teen angst..."
Sleepless in Seattle
Film Review June 25, 1993, by Marjorie Baumgarten
One of the signature love stories of the Nineties, Sleepless in Seattle basks in the idea of romantic love while also tweaking the notion.
"...Starring: Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, Bill Pullman, Ross Malinger, Rosie O'Donnell, Rob Reiner and Carey Lowell. What is there to say about a picture hailed as “the date movie of the summer” that leaves you cold and running for the exit when all those around you are laughing their heads off? That you're having an off night? That your date is less than ideal? That you are right and the world is wrong? That the world is right and you're a mess? Vacillating between these conclusions, I haven't yet been able to pick the right one..."
An American Tail: Fievel Goes West
Film Review November 29, 1991, by Marjorie Baumgarten
Produced by Steven Spielberg, this animated film follows the further adventures of the Mousekewitz family, who came to America to escape the cat pogroms.
"...“Noisy” is the word Siskel and Ebert used repeatedly while reviewing this movie and I can't come up with anything more descriptive. Kids are likely to exit not knowing what to make of this movie: there's nothing really likable about it, though there's nothing patently dislikable about it either...."

The 28 files detail IA's investigation into a September 2017 incident in which Hawley used "threatening" and "confrontational" language toward a female medic over scheduling concerns, and used his physical size as an imposition on her (he stood in a doorway she was trying to exit and crumpled a piece of paper in front of her face); and two interviews by Jeff Steele of ATCEMS's Office of Professional Conduct investigating allegations that Hawley joined medics and cadets on a fitness drill in early January, rammed his head into a female medic's butt, and kept it there for what the medic said was two or three flights of stairs – reportedly as a way to encourage her to move faster...."

A Broken Trust at the Alamo Drafthouse
After executive mismanagement of sexual harassment accusations, the movie chain reconsiders what it means to do the right thing
Screens Story March 1, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...But the company crash came last September – or rather it began a year earlier, when Devin Faraci, editor of in-house movie news publication Birth.Movies.Death., resigned after being accused of sexually assaulting and harassing several women. The Alamo was applauded at the time for its swift response; yet in September 2017, film podcaster George Hickman found Faraci's byline on film descriptions for the Drafthouse-run Fantastic Fest, and the company confirmed he had in fact been rehired as a copywriter only four months after his ignominious exit..."
