Keeping the Faith
Edward Norton, comic genius? Not quite, though this, Norton's first film behind the camera, is a self-assured romantic puffball that neither grates nor lingers too long in the memory. It's...

Great Are the Myths
Edward Norton introduces Leaves of Grass to Austin
Screens Story  September 24, 2010, by Cindy Widner
"...That's the kind of detail Leaves of Grass nails – unearthing the specifics of buried memory, things you think you forgot about until someone puts them out there, right in front of you, and the whole sense of an experience comes flooding back. It's an unexpected but pleasurable side effect of Tim Blake Nelson's movie, in which Edward Norton plays identical twins: one a brilliant pot grower (Brady) who still lives in their Oklahoma hometown and one a brilliant classics professor (Bill) who returns there when he receives news of his brother's death...."

The Incredible Hulk

"...Directed by: Louis Leterrier. Starring: Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt, Tim Blake Nelson, Ty Burrell and Christina Cabot..."

Down in the Valley
Sadly, this is less the epic modern Western it aspires to be than a muddled melodrama about a delusional drifter played by Edward Norton.

Underground comic Jim Norton has changed the way he looks but not the way he speaks his mind
Arts Story  April 21, 2016, by Sean L. Malin
"...Jim Norton has long been the face of sin and vice in the comedy community. Ribald, crude, and slick, his stand-up often feels like it was co-written by early Howard Stern and the unmarried version of Bill Burr..."

The Illusionist
Surprisingly, this atmospheric movie starring some of the greatest actors of our time is a dull and enervating bore.
Film Review  August 25, 2006, by Marjorie Baumgarten

Quick-Change Artist
Edward Norton does another character about-face in the gritty drama Stone
Screens Story  October 22, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"...It's not uncommon for an actor to have two films arrive in theatres – or your local video store – within the same month, but it is rare when a lead actor plays roles as diametrically opposed as those Edward Norton has in the upcoming Stone and Leaves of Grass, which was released on DVD Oct. 12..."

The Shawshank Redemption
Frank Darabont's debut feature based on the Stephen King novella receives a 10th anniversary reissue. The prison drama features standout performances by Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins.
Film Review  September 23, 1994, by Marc Savlov
"...It's here that he meets Red (Freeman), a grizzled lifer with little hope of parole, and the man who “knows how to get things”: cigarettes, booze, girlie mags, whatnot. Overseen by the dictatorial Warden Norton (Gunton), a bible-thumping hypocrite with a taste for easy money, and his right hand thug Captain Hadley (Brown), the prison is a nightmare factory of midnight beatings, corrupt politics, and desperate hopelessness, where bull queers target the weak “new fish” -- like Andy -- and take what they want by force while the guards look away..."

The Painted Veil
Set in China and starring Naomi Watts, Edward Norton, and Liev Schreiber, this melodic adaptation of W. Somerset Maugham's novel is the story of many things – but it is most of all the story of a marriage.

"...Meet his new pack: five dogs, left to fend for themselves. There’s Boss (Murray), Duke (Goldblum), and King (Balaban), with tension between resident outsider Chief (Cranston, channeling a variant of the affable surliness that served him so well in Last Flag Flying), and their de facto not-leader Rex (Norton)..."

The Secret World of Arrietty
This new animated film from Japan's Studio Ghibli is based on The Borrowers, a story about 4-inch-tall people who live undetected among their human hosts.
Film Review  February 24, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...If the premise of this Studio Ghibli-produced tale of tiny people living beneath the floorboards sounds familiar, that's because it's based on Mary Norton's young-adult novel The Borrowers, which has already been filmed multiple times for both film and television. The 1997 version starring John Goodman is probably the best-known of this perennial kidhood favorite, but The Secret World of Arrietty is by far the most magical and striking we've seen yet, due in no small part to the magnificent 2-D animation from Ghibli's animators..."

Tense and provocative piece about a parole officer
DAILY Screens  September 24, 2010, by Kimberley Jones

Young Che Guevara takes a road trip up the length of South America and discovers his humanity in this portrait of the future revolutionary as a young man.
Film Review  October 8, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...Dr. Goodlove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Proletariat might have been a better title for this ingratiatingly loopy origin story about prerevolutionary icon Ernesto "Che" Guevara (starring Y Tu Mamá También’s Bernal as that guy on your T-shirt) and pal Alberto Granado (de la Serna) and their historic, hysteric 8,000-mile sojourn from Buenos Aires to the northernmost sliver of Venezuela astride a rickety 1939 Norton 500 motorcycle in 1952..."

Jumping on the Bard-wagon
With the arrival of September, Austin is again awash in Shakespeare. Five productions -- from a minimalist Romeo and Juliet to a deconstructed comedy goofing on all the plays -- are currently playing Central Texas stages.
Arts Story  September 17, 1999, by Robi Polgar
"..."It's the movie," says Bill Sheffield, board member of the Austin Shakespeare Festival (ASF) and director of the Festival's second play of the season, Othello, when asked why there seems to be so much Shakespeare on Austin stages these days. He's being a little facetious, but when the same question is asked of Paul Norton, artistic director of ASF, whose As You Like It is running in repertory with Othello, Norton grins and comes up with the same response: "It's the movie."..."

The New Environmental Regime; Ripping Off the Pentagon
News Column  February 9, 2001, by Jim Hightower
"...As interior secretary, Gale Norton is supposed to be the steward of our national lands, forests, and waterways, shooing off the spoilers and speculators that constantly scheme to pollute these invaluable resources.

Arts Story  June 9, 2000, by Robi Polgar
"...The biggest drawback to being union in a city where so much theatre gets produced but only a handful of it can be described as fiscally professional is the "lack of constant opportunities to work," says union actor Paul Norton. Norton, artistic director of the Austin Shakespeare Festival, is a longtime member of both American and British Equity: "I made the commitment to become a union actor many years ago, and I do not take that commitment lightly..."
