Blood in the Face
Without a zombie in sight, this is the best horror film in years. Co-directors Anne Bohlen (Roger & Me), Kevin Rafferty (director of The Atomic Cafe) and James Ridgeway (D.C....
Film Review  June 21, 1991, by Marc Savlov
"...columnist for the Village Voice) have taken their cameras deep into the black heart of professional racism in America. Blood in the Face chronicles the truly bizarre goings-on during a weekend gathering at pastor Bob Miles' farm in Cohoctah, Michigan -- just a Molotov's throw away from Michael Moore's infamous hometown of Flint (the perpetually rotund Moore makes a cameo here, grilling a vivacious young Nazi-ette)..."

Pow, Right in the Face!
Laura Spector and Chadwick Gray get all personal with art
DAILY Design  September 30, 2011, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Well, everybody needs a pasttime, right? But Laura Spector and Chadwick Gray, when they find these works of art, also re-create them. She paints them on his face and body. Yeah, not many people with a pasttime like that, hey? But what's best – besides how basically charming these two globetrotting artists & provocateurs are – is that Spector's painting skills are pretty damned epic, would be impressive even if she weren't using her partner as a goddam living canvas. Caution: MAJOR SKILLS AHEAD. Anyway, listen: Spector and Gray will be talking about what it takes to do That Thing That They Do, in a public and entertaining pitch for support, at Jerry's Artarama on Saturday from noon 'til 2pm. Join us there, won't you?..."

"Daily Afflictions": You Deserve a Slap in the Face Today
Books Story  March 15, 2002, by Katherine Tanney
"...Imagine standing before the mirror each day, face to face with yourself, and declaring, "It's not whether I arrive; it's how I lose my way," or "I will find that special person who is wrong for me in just the right way." Imagine calling a therapist because you feel too good about yourself. Unmanageably successful..."

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas
Vera Farmiga is a knockout in this otherwise predictable and emotionally manipulative story about the horror of the German concentration camps.
Film Review  November 21, 2008, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...Cardinal and predictable. Because what kind of person wouldn’t be moved by children from opposite sides of a war struggling to overcome towering inhumanity and age-old bigotry in the name of friendship? And what kind of filmmaker wouldn’t therefore be tempted to squeeze that emotional vulnerability for all it is worth? The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is safe filmmaking all the way, hinting at enough incomprehensible brutality to get hearts aching but unwilling to force audiences to actually stare that brutality in the face, lest sympathy give way to horror..."

Babe: Pig in the City
It befits the director of Mad Max and The Road Warrior that this sequel to his Academy Award-nominated Babe is a far more boisterous affair than its predecessor. Whereas audiences'...
Film Review  November 27, 1998, by Marc Savlov
"...Hoggett being strip-searched by the Drug Enforcement Agency. If the first film was a gentle parable for children and adults alike, then Babe: Pig in the City -- its brash city cousin -- is a surrealistic, occasionally grim tale of valor in the face of terrifically bad odds..."

Late in the Evening
Live review of Paul Simon at the Cedar Park Center
DAILY Music  November 7, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Simon’s homage to George Harrison in the encore with “Here Comes the Sun” was heartfelt but misguided in the face of 20 other of his own songs that would’ve pleased the full house better, but opening the second half of the show with “Sounds of Silence” solo acoustic and then the band coming on for “Kodachrome” had already left everyone a little light-headed...."

Cracks in the Ceiling
An extended Q&A with Ann Richards biographer Jan Reid
DAILY Books  October 25, 2012, by Michael King
"...I think some of the distance came because, I didn’t know anything about her Dallas experiences, or her unpleasant experiences coming face-to-face with LBJ or Jimmy Carter, or being so close to the Kennedy assassination. When I found all that, and found myself writing, I had 200 pages and I hadn’t even gotten her out of Dallas yet..."

A Shot in the Arm
DAILY Music  May 13, 2008, by Raoul Hernandez
"...As Wilco’s lovably hangdog air traffic controller steadily scales Dylanesque heights of musical worship, the mantle continues to bow his shoulders even when cloaked in a green pinstriped sports jacket. Fortunately, he’s been saved by rock & roll, literally – by his own sung admission – so once he launched into opener “Sunken Treasure,” his clenched face loosened and finally broke into a sheepish grin just prior to “Handshake Drugs,” which tore the first of two sold-out shows a new blowhole..."

"..."Real situations involving real people" is what ultimately pulls Woolf to events like the Donegal contest. It just so happens that the real people Woolf stumbled upon in Shamrock are men like Richard Smith, the town's normally smooth-faced "chief fuzzer." Smith has entered the contest -- and won -- every 10 years since 1958..."

Rumble in the Bronx
This fast-paced, funny film served as America's introduction to Jackie Chan and the hyperactive world of Hong Kong action filmmaking.
Film Review  February 23, 1996, by Joey O'Bryan
"...There's also ample comedy on display, including a memorable episode with a two-way mirror and an unforgettable moment when co-star Mui, pushed to the breaking point after her supermarket has been demolished for the umpteenth time, throws a hysterical temper tantrum amidst the rubble. Still, Rumble in the Bronx has its share of problems, and they are hardly subtle: a paper-thin, why-bother story line; the smiley-face squalor of the Canadian locations which guilelessly try to stand in for the Bronx; and, last but most certainly not least, the sometimes unbearable, always absurd English dubbing..."

What We Do in the Shadows
Cleverly executed, this vampire spoof by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, is a lot of fun.
Film Review  February 27, 2015, by Marc Savlov
"...A gently parodic tone prevails throughout what is ultimately a pretty sweet take on bloodsuckers, even as Deacon and Nick flap their way through a “bat fight” (exactly what it sounds like) and the vamps face off against a pack of similarly esteem-challenged werewolves led by Conchords manager Rhys Darby...."

A Walk in the Woods
Robert Redford and Nick Nolte walk the Appalachian Trail in Bill Bryson's memoir
Film Review  September 4, 2015, by Marjorie Baumgarten

What nylon mascara can do for a soul
DAILY Design  November 9, 2009, by Cindy Widner
"...It was easy peasy and lighthearted and made me feel all spontaneous and freedom rock. I don't know if it's the "nylon formula" or the superlong brush or the smiley-face color of the package or, most likely, some minuscule generational alignment, but I'm going to go ahead and credit this one to the mascara..."

Alone in the Dark
There's a certain majesty to German director Boll's style of filmmaking: a freedom from art, talent, skill of any formal kind, and the sheer pigheadedness to keep going at any cost.

Film Review  February 4, 2005, by Marc Savlov
"...The story, which liberally borrows from Peter Hyams' 1997 The Relic as well as Aliens, Tremors, and even William Castle's chestnut (and John Waters' fave) The Tingler, is as senseless as the direction, but the real fun begins even before then, with one of the longest – perhaps the longest – opening expository crawls ever endured. Over the course of the verbiage, we're informed that an ancient Native American race known as the Abkani long ago discovered a portal to another, more evil world, before promptly vanishing off the face of the earth..."

I, for one, can’t wait to stick my face into a bowl of bacon ramen (when no one is looking) while steeped in good old Austin nostalgia...."

Devil in the Details
Why Is 'Talented Amateur Historian' Leon Day Obsessed With the Death of Ambrose Bierce?
Books Story  May 17, 2002, by James McWilliams
"...In another "authoritative" biography of Bierce published in 1929, the author -- Walter Neale -- argued that Bierce left Laredo, crawled off into a cave (perhaps in the Grand Canyon) and killed himself in order to hoax the world. On the surface, the theory sounds less insane than it seems..."

The Luckiest Girl in the World
An interview with Sissy Spacek, inducted into the first annual Texas Film Hall of Fame on March 9.
Screens Story  March 9, 2001, by Margaret Moser
"...That's the beauty of acting in movies. Film visually freezes the actor in the role and thus the enduring appeal of the screen image: Think of Spacek in Carrie when the pig's blood hits, wowing 'em on the Opry stage as Loretta Lynn, or the reflection of Rose's stricken face in a window in The Straight Story..."

Film Review  July 24, 1998, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Augustin Robert (Ben Daniels, who is also currently onscreen in Madeline) is a product of the Age of Enlightenment, a logical chap who seems a bit peeved by his assignment to escort an artist/scholar (Piccoli) whom Bonaparte has sent to paint and record the land's monuments and antiquities. The two become lost in a sandstorm, and face doom once the artist uses the last of their water to mix his paints..."

"...In last week’s KU game, reserve quarterback Case McCoy engineered two fourth quarter drives for the 21-17 win with 12 seconds left. But even after such heroics in the face of what would’ve been a long flight home on Laughing Stock Airways (“plenty of room for the tail between your legs”), MCCoy’s name on the depth chart remains Justin Case...."

"..."And you were the kindest of them all." The implications – Sada was formerly a prostitute, but a kind one – are unnerving, but not as unnerving as what happens next.

"...electricity? Where was that again, Tbilisi? My friends and associates were very polite, but I know they felt a bit sorry for me that I had so much committed to such an unlikely venture. I knew that I had something worthwhile, spectacular even, but it was difficult to communicate that until the film was actually executed, and hard to maintain faith in the face of all the politeness...."

"...The city converted the floor into a "hospital within a hospital" after the Catholic Church ordered Seton to stop providing reproductive health care services to indigent women at Brack. The religious edict may have been a slap in the face to many Austin women, but it was manna from heaven for UTMB, which jumped at the opportunity to begin carving a capital city niche...."

Jason Reitman (Not) Versus the Internet
Men, Women & Children director on the use and abuse of tech
DAILY Screens  October 17, 2014, by Richard Whittaker
"...Reitman found himself working on a different narrative grammar than his early, wordier work like Up in the Air, one in which digital communication is constant, but face-to-face conversations are rare. When he started location-scouting in Austin, he quickly realized how much the digital world had changed physical interactions: “There were new schools that didn’t have lockers..."

A Bloodcurdling Day in the Neighborhood: ANC Council Candidates Forum
Tense ANC candidates forum on Wedensday.
DAILY News  March 28, 2008, by Wells Dunbar
"...Seeing as we're facing a gantlet of upcoming forums, Wednesday night's Austin Neighborhoods Council City Council candidate forum may already be old news. But as perhaps the most well-attended and intense vetting of the candidates to date, it was a seriously substantive discussion – if not a window into the concerns of the voting homeownerati this election. Place 4 hopeful Cid Galindo was first unto the breach, given (like all his fellow speakers) two minutes for an intro, then 13 minutes to face a barrage of detailed ANC questions, with a hard time limit of a minute on each answer enforced..."

He's decked out in what must be his Sunday dress best – a dirt-brown leisure suit with the collar of a colorful Western shirt carefully flattened over its, wide, angular lapels – and his hair has that slicked-back sheen reserved for the Saturday night dance and the 11 o'clock service at the Baptist church..."
