Socially Responsible Investing Discussion
Benedictine nun has included Wal-Mart, among others, in her targets.
DAILY News  October 25, 2007, by Lee Nichols
"...Late notice, but if you're free this afternoon, Jason Meeker of Responsible Growth for Northcross wants Austinites to know about a presentation being given this afternoon by Sister Susan Mika, a Benedictine nun from Saint Scholastica Monastery in Boerne about her Socially Responsible Investment Coalition (SRIC). (Hint: she might mention Wal-Mart.) Click on the link below for more details:..."

Ninja Assassin
No amount of fighting sticks and throwing stars can elevate this silly tale or its Korean pop-lite star Rain.

Film Review  November 27, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...That would be ginchy Korean pop-lite star Rain who plays Raizo, who was abducted as a child by the not even vaguely mysterious Ozuno Clan, and thereafter raised to be, like, totally unkillable and way superbuff. The convoluted and really, really lousy storyline has sexy, Berlin-based Interpol agent Mika Coretti (Harris) digging up connections between a recent spate of high-profile international assassinations and the Ozunus..."

The Match Factory Girl
With not even 70 minutes total running time and, seemingly, not more than two dozen total lines of dialogue, The Match Factory Girl spins a compelling narrative, a devastating cultural portrait, and an object lesson in the less-is-more school of storytelling.
Film Review  April 2, 1993, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...A shot sometimes lingers too long, or cuts too quickly, or foregrounds the apparently trivial -- a quirky, unpredictable rhythm and focus that disallow viewer comfort and safe distance. This visual style, along with his signature deadpan humor, has earned Aki Kaurismaki (who often works in conjunction with his brother Mika) a reputation as one of the seminal European filmmakers..."

Oh Lucy!
Japanese/U.S. identity comedy.
Film Review  April 20, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...It's a fleeting nothing that sends her delicately off-kilter, in the way of a spinning top, its trajectory growing ever wider and wilder. None of this is helped by her niece Mika (Kutsuna, Deadpool 2), a maid cafe hostess who convinces her to take English lessons from a guy called Joe (Hartnett)..."

Keanu Reeves is a samurai warrior fighting supernatural forces in this twist on the ancient Japanese tale.
Film Review  December 27, 2013, by Louis Black
"...The lord’s samurai fear and shun Kai, believing that he is half devil child. As he grows up slightly feral in Asano’s palace, Kai’s ally and developing love interest is Mika (Shibasaki), the lord’s only child..."

This Oscar-winner for Best Foreign Language Film is a gentle and comedically nuanced exercise in mourning from Japan.
Film Review  August 28, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...(That said, I still think Folman got the short end of the tombstone.) Motoki (Shall We Dance?) is perfectly cast as Daigo Kobayashi, a thirtysomething cellist who suffers the artistic cataclysm of his orchestra's disbandment due to "sparse" audience attendance. Fortune favors the forlorn in Takita's film, and so Daigo and his loving and lovely wife, Mika (the equally fine Hirosue), head to the Japanese backwater where he grew up and where his deceased mother's house awaits..."

The Other Side of Hope
Searching for a better tomorrow in Aki Kaurismäki's droll tale of immigrants and restaurants
Film Review  January 5, 2018, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Kaurismäki’s minimalist style is often compared to that of fellow auteur Jim Jarmusch, but you’ll also find in Kaurismäki’s work (Leningrad Cowboys Go America, The Match Factory Girl, Le Havre) the signature influences of silent comedians, Robert Bresson, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Sam Fuller, Jean-Luc Godard, Jean Renoir, and more. Kaurismäki, along with his brother Mika, who is also a filmmaker, are Finland’s most prolific and well-known directors, who together are responsible for shaping the lion’s share of that country’s international film footprint...."

Austin Opera's Madame Butterfly
The company delivers a lovely staging of this Puccini opera that builds to a heartbreaking finale
Arts Review  May 4, 2017, by Michelle Haché
"...Providing notable support are Michael Chioldi, an impressive baritone whose rich tone and gorgeous, dark timbre, coupled with his soulful, honest approach to Sharpless, makes his my favorite performance; mezzo-soprano Mika Shigematsu, who conveys a very noble and quiet strength within the character of Suzuki and creates my favorite moments of the production; and local baritone Austin Siebert, whose performance as both the Imperial Commissioner and Prince Yamadori is a surprise standout of the production, showing a warmth in tone that's well-suited to his versatility. The Austin Opera Chorus, rehearsed by Julian Reed, is clear and rich, and each chorus member has a well-defined character..."

The artist's VAC installation creates an afterimage for the afterworld
Arts Story  February 10, 2012, by Andy Campbell
"...Since then, a massive renovation revealed Louis Kahn-like cement vaults, transforming the humdrum institutional space into one that artists should be envious of, as well as awed and intimidated by. Previous installations by Amanda Ross-Ho, Ry Rocklen, and Mika Tajima all took up the challenge, admirably resulting in the creation of an art-materials factory, a set of strange carpet sculptures, and an homage to the poetics of refusal known as "slacking," respectively..."

The Mighty Finn
AFS Essential Cinema presents the Chilly Humorist of Finland: Aki Kaurismäki
Screens Story  November 13, 2009, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Having made movies for nearly three full decades, Kaurismäki has shown a productivity that is only rivaled by that of his older brother Mika, who is also a filmmaker. Though a few years younger than Mika, Aki's films were the first to connect internationally, and he achieved his first flush of widespread success with 1989's Leningrad Cowboys Go America, a film about a band with more style and determination than skill and smarts..."
