Wild Things
The film is a fun, sexy never-ending game of double-cross.
starstarstar
Film Review  March 27, 1998, by Marc Savlov
"...McNaughton has come a long way since his personal high-water mark with 1990's Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, though you wouldn't know it from this teasey, cheesy mess. Still, like Henry, Wild Things is shot in a filter-heavy, smeary-lens fashion that makes the blinding Florida sunshine look positively grimy (how anyone ever gets a tan in this film is one of the great mysteries of the universe)..."

Film Review  September 3, 1993, by Marc Savlov
"...So it comes as a welcome surprise to realize that this new King film (the third thus far by Rob Reiner's Castle Rock production company) is -- collective sigh of relief -- genuinely entertaining, albeit in a weasely, “Sunday Afternoon Ain't Got Nothin' Better To Do” sort of way. Max von Sydow has a field day as demonic shop owner Leland Gaunt, a Hawthornesque curio store (the titular Needful Things) proprietor who blows into the small Maine town of Castle Rock one crisp fall day and immediately begins setting the townspeople against one another like so many human dominos..."

At Least Five Things You Should Know About, I Mean, If You Were Counting
The bimonthly literary/art/performative series Five Things happens Friday at the Art Authority
DAILY Books  June 3, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...It might take a sec to wrap your brain around the concept behind the regular series Five Things: We're gonna take a cue from the title and call it a multimedia thingy involving awesomely talented Austin folk, but cohost Stacy Muszynski's description of a "literati/musical/performative event" is a lot more elegant. The theme of this month's event is Photographs. Five authors – Amanda Eyre Ward, Jennifer Pashley, Aly Tadros, Perry Tyson Midkiff II (who, fyi, won second place in our last Austin Chronicle Short Story Contest for his terrific story "May the Passenger Pigeon Sing Thee to Thy Rest"), and Sigers Steele – will tell stories based on the photographs of five photographers – Mary Sledd, Suzi Q, Sarah Gonzalez, David Jewell, and David Hill – followed by music from the likes of Jamie Panzer, Legs Against Arms, and Zapata Sparrow..."

Bright Young Things
Actor and author Stephen Fry turns director for this colorful group snapshot of monied revelers in 1930s London.
starstarstar
Film Review  September 24, 2004, by Kimberley Jones
"...Starring: Emily Mortimer, Stephen Campbell Moore, James McAvoy, Michael Sheen, David Tennant, Fenella Woolgar, Dan Aykroyd, Jim Broadbent and Peter O’Toole. Bright Young Things begins with the camera, bobbing and weaving to the frenzied swing of "Sing Sing Sing," zooming in on crazy-angled close-ups of London’s wealthy set in the 1930s, the title’s "bright young things." (The film is adapted from Evelyn Waugh’s novel, the far gloomier-sounding Vile Bodies.) The costumed revelers are bathed in a ghoulish red haze, and, indeed, there’s something devilish to the witty banter and bountiful drink, but if this is meant to recall hell, then, baby, hell looks like a hell of a lot of fun..."

Film Review  March 4, 2000, by Marc Savlov
"...Just a rule of thumb I use, but it seems to work. Mike Nichols, a director who appears to want to be all things to all people these days (his last three films -- 1998's Primary Colors, 1996's The Birdcage, and 1994's Wolf – cover a pretty broad spectrum of filmmaking styles), has fashioned a throwback to the mid-Seventies with What Planet Are You From?, a film that answers the burning question: Can a horny alien make it with an emotionally battered 12-stepper and still lead his planet to universal conquest? Frankly, I don't remember asking the question in the first place, but surely someone did, somewhere..."
