There is a new drug hitting the streets right now and it goes by the name Run Lola Run. The rush starts the second the lights dim on this kinetic...

Lola Versus
Greta Gerwig stars in this movie about thirtysomethings' troubles in life and love, but the conflict teased in the title never clearly emerges.
starstarhalfstar
Film Review  June 22, 2012, by Kimberley Jones
"...Versus what, precisely? Or is it whom? Made by the same creative team behind the likable micro-indie Breaking Upwards, Lola Versus roves similar terrain as that film – the altered landscape after a long-term couple ruptures – but can't seem to ferret out the conflict teased in the title...."

Nubian Queen Lola's Wall o' Gifts
A suggestion for your unique gift quest: This jailhouse art rocks.
DAILY Design  December 17, 2009, by Kate X Messer
"...NUBIAN QUEEN LOLA'S WALL O' GIFTS You're just going to buy something stupid that they are not going to use anyway, so you might as well do some good and get them something amazingly lovely, one-of-a-kind, totally unique, superfly, and for a good cause: gifts hand-crafted with love. While you are at it, you should consider backing up our commander-in-chief right now, because, frankly, with the gigantic teabag's worth of pushback our guy is getting up on Capitol Hill, it's time for us Yes We Canners to rep-re-sent..."

Nubian Queen Lola's Cajun Soul Food Cafe
Authentically delicious cultural enrichment
DAILY Food  February 11, 2013, by Carly Yansak
"...Nubian Queen Lola's Cajun Soul Food Cafe is a joint nestled on the corners of Rosewood and Lafayette. Small; scratchily painted; windows with bars over them, you could call it a hole in the wall I guess..."

Nubian Queen Lola's Cajun Kitchen
Lola Stephens feels she's blessed to have her cafe open, but trust us: Austin diners are the ones who are blessed

LOLA's La Clemenza di Tito: A Retelling
The quality of mercy is never not strained in this new adaptation of Mozart's late opera
Arts Review  March 8, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...It was an act of virtue you felt deserved to be rewarded, and in the original opera, it is: Tito's show of mercy to Sesto and his lover Vitellia – the murder plot's true author, who had seduced Sesto into taking Tito's life – is hailed by the Romans in a celebratory chorus. LOLA's version ended with that praise, but Herman provided counterpoint to it with new staging..."

DAILY The Gay Place  December 13, 2009, by Lola Houston

Cafe Au Lait
First-time French filmmaker Mathieu Kassovitz's Café au Lait bears more than a passing resemblance to Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It, both in terms of its basic plot and its...

Film Review  April 7, 1995, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Kassovitz not only wrote and directed but also co-stars in this French version of Elle's Gotta Have It. Julie Mauduech plays Lola (in Lee's movie the character was named Nola), the black woman at the center of this love triangle..."

Film Review  February 27, 2004, by Kimberley Jones
"...In this adaptation of Gail Parent’s teen novel, Lohan plays Mary Cep, a New York-born dreamer who fears her acting ambitions are dead in the water when her divorced mom (Headly) moves the family out to the Jersey suburbs. Mary survives in the ’burbs by taking the name Lola, inventing an exotic backstory, and befriending another dreamer, the mousy, inhibited Ella (Pill)..."

Love After Love
In her early films like Peppermint Soda and Entre Nous, French filmmaker Diane Kurys gravitated toward stories about female friendships and coming of age issues. In her current film, Love...

Film Review  November 25, 1994, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Another way of stating it is that Love After Love concerns a year in the lives of a bunch of well-off, non-monogamous French types. It stars the always lovely yet often inscrutable Isabelle Huppert as a successful novelist named Lola whose live-in love of many years, an architect named David (Giraudeau), also maintains a residence and responsibility for two children with another woman..."

Local Opera Local Artists' We Might Be Struck by Lightning
In this new pastiche chamber opera, LOLA takes us on a bold musical journey
Arts Review  August 24, 2017, by Michelle Haché
"...In We Might Be Struck by Lightning, Rebecca Herman, founding artistic producer of LOLA (Local Opera Local Artists), takes a unique approach to presenting art song. She's created two original storylines and woven through them compositions by Fauré, Brahms, Schubert, and others that relate to the characters' circumstances..."

The 2014-15 Austin Critics Table Awards
Top honors to Salvage Vanguard's Thr3e Zisters, LOLA Austin's Femme Bohème, and Texas State's Kiss Me, Kate
Arts Story  June 4, 2015, by Robert Faires
"...That irreverent riff on Chekhov earned the most love in the Table's 23rd presentation of honors for notable artistic achievements, but close behind were LOLA Austin's La Femme Bohème and Texas State University Department of Theatre and Dance's Kiss Me, Kate with three awards each. Nine projects took home two prizes each: Ballet Austin's Belle Redux; Zach Theatre's Cenicienta; Half & Half Productions' Chicago; Hyde Park Theatre's The Christians; Theatre en Bloc's Cock; Physical Plant Theater's Everything Is Established; the Austin Classical Guitar/Conspirare/Texas Performing Arts collaboration How Little You Are; Performa/Dance's Ignite: Three Works; and Trouble Puppet Theatre's The Wars of Heaven, Part I..."

Band Aid
A couple works out their problems through song
starstarstar
Film Review  June 23, 2017, by Danielle White
"...Anyone who has attempted co-habitation knows full well that it’s never about the dishes, or the dirty socks on the floor; these points of conflict are merely manifestations of much deeper issues. And so it goes for Band Aid’s longtime couple Anna (Lister-Jones, Lola Versus) and Ben (Pally, Night Owls), whose relationship has hit a rough patch after a series of failures (or, ya know, what some of us call life)...."

The International
This conspiracy thriller starring Clive Owen and Naomi Watts never gets past second gear.
starstarhalfstar
Film Review  February 13, 2009, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...Wexler’s audience is Louis Salinger (Owen), an Interpol agent who’s been investigating IBBC for years but keeps running into dead ends and dead bodies, no matter which country he goes to (because this isn’t just a White House operation, like the one in All the President’s Men, or a joint White House/Army/Justice Department/Dallas Police Department/Cuban freedom fighter/Supreme Court operation, like the one in JFK). In this conspiracy (helmed by the director of Run Lola Run), everyone really is involved: governments, multinational corporations, military juntas, Hezbollah, drug cartels, the Mafia, the Illuminati, possibly the Masons and the Elks, and on and on and on..."

Paris, Je T'Aime
Eighteen short films by an international who’s-who of filmmakers make up this omnibus celebrating the joys and sorrows of love and Paris, organized by neighborhood.

Film Review  June 22, 2007, by Marrit Ingman
"...Eighteen short films by an international who’s who of filmmakers make up this omnibus celebrating the joys and sorrows of love and Paris, organized by neighborhood. Filmed in myriad styles, this “collective film” is based on a concept by producer Emmanuel Benbihy and underwoven by Pierre Adenot and Marie Sabbah’s nimble score, which morphs from the bemused pizzicato of Bruno Podalydès’ sidewalk love story in Montmartre to the creepy Bernard Herrmann stylings underneath Vincenzo Natali’s sexy pop-art vampire romp in "Quartier de la Madeleine." Tom Tykwer’s lyrical short film “True” appears here as “Faubourg Saint-Denis”; anchoring the techno fast-motion montage techniques of his Run Lola Run on a standout performance by Portman, Tykwer excavates the charred remains of a relationship..."

Kinky Boots
One man's ailing boot factory and a transvestite's need for extra-large thigh-highs become a perfect match in this British comedy about tolerance.
starstarstar
Film Review  May 19, 2006, by Marc Savlov
"...While scads of this English industrial town's residents depend on the company for their livelihood, it's equally clear that globalization has knocked them clear out of the running. Prodded by felicitous tomboy (and soon-to-be love interest) Lauren (Wonderland's Potts), Charlie discovers a bountiful niche market when he teams up with black transvestite Lola (Ejiofor), whose cross-dressing London cabaret is desperately in need of the titular, saucy footwear that's difficult to fine in a size 12EEE..."

The latest release in the Shooting Gallery series, the 1996 crime drama Non-Stop keeps busy enough for its brisk 82-minute running time. But 82 minutes is a long time to...

Film Review  December 8, 2000, by Marrit Ingman
"...Big, and an incipient gangland turf war likely to ignite a Tarantinoid tempest of testosterone and bullets in a climactic showdown conveniently located in that abandoned warehouse of yore. Subsequently, the film never quite takes flight; it feels more like a formal exercise than a spontaneous blast of adrenaline, unlike the (at times) strikingly similar (but far more assured) German import Run Lola Run..."
