Denzel Washington scores big in August Wilson's great American play
Film Review  December 23, 2016, by Marc Savlov
"...This is Denzel Washington’s third at bat behind the camera while directing himself and, holy smokes, does he knock it out of the park with a vicious, visceral performance that fairly sets the screen ablaze. Adapted from the canonical Pittsburgh-set play by August Wilson, Fences crackles with spitfire dialogue, blazing emotions, and worn-down, gut-punched humanity...."

AFS Doc Nights: Purgatorio
Screens Story  December 4, 2014, by Anne S. Lewis
"...And that he did in this remarkably nuanced film shot during a monthlong road trip along the border from Tijuana to South Texas. Actually more visual essay or meditation, sparsely punctuated by Reyes' first-person voiceover, Purgatorio juxtaposes stunning panoramas of the frontera's natural beauty with scenes that reveal the soul-crushing horror and material devastation that resulted when humans drew lines and fences went up..."

A Simple Favor
Anna Kendrick turns unlikely sleuth in this deliciously twisted romp
Film Review  September 14, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...It may seem a switch for the Freaks and Geeks creator who made his cinematic reputation with bawdy female-fronted comedies like Bridesmaids, but the clues are in the logo card for his production company, Feigco Entertainment: A woman in a stylish 1950s dress and white evening gloves, with oh-so-sharp garden shears behind her back. It’s the sense of something wicked afoot behind the white picket fences of suburbia, and it’s up to single mom turned amateur sleuth Stephanie Smothers (Kendrick) to get to the bottom of it all – that is, unless her own filthy secrets drag her down first...."

Film Review  January 29, 1993, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Arrogant though troubled Grandmaster Sanderson (Lambert) is the fulcrum of the story as he becomes both the murderer's sole contact and the police's prime suspect. Skerritt seemingly wanders in from his stint as small-town police chief on TV's Picket Fences to play (guess what!) a small-town police chief..."

Books Review  April 1, 2011, by Sarah Smith
"...Montecore deals in the sparkling tropes of contemporary fiction but very successfully grounds them in old-fashioned familial anguish. With style to spare and a keen take on the political turmoil of a region recently thrown into high-media focus, Montecore shows a young novelist swinging for the fences and hitting hard..."

Being diplomatic isn't being deceptive; it's being thoughtful and caring
Columns  March 14, 2018, by The Luv Doc
"...It troubles me that we (she) might have been alienating people over the years, and even though I know my partner might not care, I do. So, how do I go about mending fences with people who have written us off because of her behavior?

Raising deer, oryx, antelope, and more on central texas ranches
Food Story  June 7, 2002, by MM Pack
"...Driving just about anywhere in the Hill Country these days, you can hardly help but notice the fences. Not the old barbed wire ones, but the tall ones, often adorned with a ranch sign that includes the word "Exotics." (I always find myself peering into the brush behind those fences, hoping to catch a glimpse, of what I'm not sure.) And if you've eaten out much in the past few years, particularly in white-tablecloth restaurants, it's likely you've observed an increasing number of game dishes on menus..."

"...Along Bowman Drive in Round Rock the fences get tagged, cleaned, re-tagged, and re-cleaned at a clip that wouldn't be shocking except that this is so obviously a suburb. photograph by JOHN ANDERSON "[Suburbia] is going to waste its land, despoil the very qualities that attract so many families to it, and turn it into a slum, miscellaneously peppered with houses, hot-dog stands, and factories......"
