The Texas Documentary Tour: Judy Irving's 'The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill'
Screens Story  September 9, 2005, by Anne S. Lewis
"...Big mistake. I'll stop before I begin waxing about how it's so much more than a film about a bunch of cherry-headed conures, other than to say that probably no one was more surprised by the way the film turned out than its Bay area filmmaker, Judy Irving (Dark Circle)...."

The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill
Well-considered, beautifully made, and often gripping in its narrative, this film examines a man's complex relationship with a flock of wild parrots.

Film Review  May 13, 2005, by Marrit Ingman
"...Directed by: Judy Irving. Could this summer’s breakout film star be Mark Bittner, a graying San Francisco hippie with no girlfriend, no apparent means of income, and no abdominal six-pack? He’s a regular guy in every sense of the term, and perhaps even less estimable at first glance, certainly among the feisty young go-getters in his scenic bayfront neighborhood..."

"...Gable (You Made Me Love You)." It would be two more years before The Wizard of Oz made her Dorothy of our hearts, and in a way, her life really was over after that. The three discs that follow the early years highlight what will always be some of the finest American pop music of the century from composers like Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Rogers and Hammerstein, George & Ira Gershwin, Jule Styne, Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer, Rodgers and Hart, and Lerner and Loewe, among others..."

Annie Get Your Gun
Zilker Theatre Productions' staging of 'Annie Get Your Gun' is delightful enough to make you feel there are no show people like show people
Arts Review  July 22, 2005, by Robert Faires
"...The point is proven again with Zilker Theatre Productions' staging of Annie Get Your Gun. When composer Irving Berlin and book writers Herbert and Dorothy Fields turned the spotlight on their ilk, they did so with a keen understanding of all the elements that make theatre special – this is, after all, the musical that gave us that rousing celebration of all things theatrical, "There's No Business Like Show Business" – but also with a wry appreciation of the ego and flimflammery involved in an art form that's all about convincing people what they're seeing is something other than it is..."

Insomnia, restlessness, and poetic triumphs of free association
Columns  February 10, 2012, by Louis Black
"...Knowing my meager attention span, from the beginning he is determined to get as many words into the conversation as he possibly can. His rants are poetic triumphs of free association, this time out about the health of our old pal Judy; how he doesn't care about the Super Bowl; stories of GG Allin's mom from Greg's wife, Edie, who once worked with her; references to Cormac McCarthy, John Irving, the Rolling Stones, World War II, Barry and the Remains, New Hampshire folklore, the American band Kaleidoscope (not to be confused with the similarly named British band), Sam & Dave, AM radio – a passionately stirred brew that is word-rich, with little care paid to details...."

Leonard Cohen
Lonesome Heroes, Bird on a Wire
Music Review  December 3, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...More a roundtable discussion than proper documentary, the near-two-hour Lonesome Heroes features scholars and critics examining the influences that shaped Montreal's prophetic poet songwriter. Aside from the obvious (Dylan, the Beat movement, early C&W), the film also focuses on Belgian singer Jacques Brel, the egoist eroticism of contemporary Irving Layton, and Spanish elegist Federico García Lorca, the latter cut with footage of Leonard Cohen performing his homage to the Spanish poet, "Take This Waltz," on Austin City Limits in the late Eighties..."

Gowns by Adrian
A tribute to Gowns by Adrian
Screens Review  June 29, 2001, by Stephen MacMillan Moser
"...Born in 1903, under the name Adrian Adolph Greenberg, he trained at New York's prestigious New York School of Fine and Applied Arts (now Parsons), and studied briefly in Paris, where he led a rather flamboyant existence and hung out with Erté and his ilk. Irving Berlin discovered him there and took Greenberg back to New York, where Berlin gave him a job designing for the Broadway hit Music Box Review in 1923..."

Latino Comedy Festival: Ripeness Is All
Arts Review  August 19, 1999
"...In one "class," Kaye couldn't possibly cover all the great songsmiths of Tin Pan Alley, but with a program that included such highlights of the Golden Age as Vincent Youmans & Irving Caesar's "Tea For Two," Fats Waller's "Keepin' Out of Mischief Now," Richard Rogers & Lorenz Hart's "Manhattan," George & Ira Gershwin's "They All Laughed," Cole Porter's "You're the Top," Harold Arlen & "Yip" Harburg's "Over the Rainbow," and Duke Ellington's "It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing" (which swung with a mighty jazz piano solo from accompanist Jeff Hellmer), Kaye's "Tribute" provided a winning introduction to the subject, a survey course right up our alley. -- Robert Faires..."

Screens Story  September 11, 1998
"...This admittedly loose adaptation of John Irving's A Prayer for Owen Meany tells the tale of a baby born so small the doctors predict he won't survive the night. They go on predicting while he outlasts each prediction to grow into a boy beset with dwarfism but secure in his faith that God has a plan for him and made him small for a reason..."
