Film Review  March 29, 2002, by Kimberley Jones
"...Say what you will of David Fincher's films – too violent, too loud, too flashy, too convoluted – but like a toothy rottweiler with its eyes fixed firmly below the belt, David Fincher's films get you by the ball sac and don't let go. Coming off of Fight Club, a cultural zeitgeist that closed out the last century, Fincher has delivered another attention-getter in Panic Room, a chilly, squirmy suspense thriller, a self-proclaimed “popcorn” flick..."

Film Review  January 11, 2019, by Matthew Monagle
"...So how will horror fans receive Escape Room, a film that promises little but packs a surprisingly effective punch?

When she receives a cryptic invitation to participate in a new escape room, she finds herself among an odd assortment of teammates..."

The Disappointments Room
Kate Beckinsale moves into a haunted house
star
Film Review  September 16, 2016, by Marc Savlov
"...You’ve seen this movie before, many times, in various iterations with woefully diminishing returns, scare-wise, and so let’s just say The Disappointments Room is aptly titled. I’d like to think in an alternate universe, it’s the attic in Bleak House where master of horror and humanity Guillermo del Toro closets away his cinematic phantasms, notions that didn’t … quite … work..."

Room
Emma Donoghue's screen adaptation of her bestseller is a knockout

Film Review  November 6, 2015, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...One of the most absorbing, thrilling, and emotionally anguishing yet restorative movies I’ve seen, Room should be entered by all means. Nevertheless, it is a difficult film to discuss with viewers who are not familiar with the plot of Emma Donoghue’s bestselling book on which it is based..."

Green Room
Punks and Nazi skinheads meet in this tense yet lovely kick in the teeth
starstarstarstar
Film Review  April 22, 2016, by Josh Kupecki
"...We all have our squeamish pressure points, be it teeth, or maybe eyes, perhaps fingernails: some scenario that sends that unmistakable frisson rolling through our body. I would hazard a guess and say that director Jeremy Saulnier is very familiar with those pressure points, because his new film Green Room, the follow-up to his breakout indie hit Blue Ruin, is one long, wicked meditation on that very sensation...."

Room 237
Pet theories about what really went down at the Overlook Hotel abound in this documentary about Stanley Kubrick's intentions in The Shining.
starstarhalfstar
Film Review  April 5, 2013, by Kimberley Jones
"...Stanley Kubrick didn’t like to explain his movies, which isn’t to say he didn’t leave plenty of room for interpretation in 2001, Eyes Wide Shut, and The Shining, that eternal terrorizer. There are no hard answers in Room 237, a feature-length, sporadically engaging exploration of the latter, and certainly no endorsement from the Kubrick estate or distributor Warner Bros..."

Room
Room wears the skin of a psychological thriller, but plays out as something far darker, weirder, and more distancing. The film was invited to Cannes and earned Independent Spirit Award nominations for its Austin artists, Kyle Henry and Cyndi Williams.

Film Review  April 7, 2006, by Kimberley Jones
"...In fact, he’s been around a while – as a film programmer, a documentarian (American Cowboy, University Inc.), and an editor (Manito). But Room, which played at Cannes and Sundance last year and netted two Independent Spirit Awards nominations this year, marks new territory for Henry: his narrative feature debut..."

The War Room
Political campaigns and cinema vérité make strange bedfellows. Spin doctoring and strategic planning seem at odds with the documentarian's reveal-all approach to filmmaking. Given these inherent tensions, it's no surprise...

Film Review  November 26, 1993, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Given these inherent tensions, it's no surprise that the hand-held cameras of husband and wife team, Pennebaker (Don't Look Back, Monterey Pop) and Hegedus (Town Bloody Hall), found their way behind the scenes of the 1992 Clinton campaign. Mainly, the film focuses on James Carville and George Stephanopoulos, Clinton's ace strategists who helmed the command post (or the War Room) at campaign headquarters..."

Film Review  June 11, 2004, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Each side accuses the other, and emotions escalate until a breakdown or impasse makes any abridgement in the gulf of understanding all but impossible. That may not be exactly what is meant when we refer to the Gulf War (again), but it does bring up the double meaning of the title Control Room..."

The Hidden Room Theatre Is Working With a Presidential Assassin
Aside from that, Mrs. Lincoln, we reckon you’ll really enjoy the show

The Keeping Room
Slow-burn thriller is a Western with a feminist slant

Film Review  October 2, 2015, by Josh Kupecki
"...The slow-burn thriller The Keeping Room is deliberately paced, with muted moments highlighting the first half of the film. British director Daniel Barber (Harry Brown) portrays the hardship the three women face in dappled sunlight as they try to till fields and hunt for game..."

The Blue Room
Mathieu Amalric directs and stars in this Hitchcockian story of l'amour four.
starstarstarstar
Film Review  October 24, 2014, by Marc Savlov
"...For this, his feature debut behind the lens, Amalric has adapted (co-scripting with his partner and co-star Cléau) one of Gallic crime novelist Georges Simenon’s slimmer volumes into a fittingly tight and extremely entertaining movie. There’s more than a hint of both Alain Resnais’ subjectively labyrinthine plotting and Claude Chabrol’s Hitchcockian portraits of the dark underbelly of small-town life, but The Blue Room is at its duplicitous heart a vivid, chronologically complex depiction of l’amour fou gone terribly wrong...."

Fantastic Fest 2015: Green Room
Blue Ruin team pits punks against neo-Nazis
DAILY Screens  September 26, 2015, by Richard Whittaker
"...For anyone who thinks of Patrick Stewart as just Star Trek: The Next Generation's smooth-pated and soft-voiced diplomat Jean-Luc Picard, then his portrayal as merciless neo-Nazi leader Darcy in Jeremy Saulnier's Green Room may seem shocking. But in the long arc of his career, it makes perfect sense...."

Film Review  April 29, 2005, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...It’s a truism that things are done big in Texas, but who knew that approach applied to failures as well successes? The Enron debacle – the bankruptcy scandal that demolished the Houston corporation that was ranked the seventh largest in the country, and also devastated its swindled employees, stockholders, business associates, and even casual observers – is put under the microscope in Gibney’s documentary. Based on the book by Fortune writers Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room documents the collapse in vivid detail and with cinematic flourish..."

While capacities for Direct Events' other two venues, the Backyard and Austin Music Hall, hover between 2,000 and 3,000 depending on their configuration, La Zona Rosa, after extensive renovations, will feature a 450-person dining room/front stage area as well as a now-enclosed main room with a capacity of 1,500..."

Making 'Room' in the Cult Canon
Tommy Wiseau's so-bad-it's-sublime debut feature
Screens Story  May 1, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Tommy Wiseau, the enigmatic director, star, and co-executive producer of 2003's independently shot The Room, is emphatic when it comes to defending his hypnotically off-kilter un-mellow-drama. Its rapidly expanding cult audience ranks the film right up there with Troll 2 and Plan 9 From Outer Space in terms of exquisite awfulness, but The Room – a bizarre love triangle of red-hot passions and stone-cold line readings – is far from the worst movie ever made ....."

To get to the Drafting Room, the bar portion of the space, I had to walk through the middle of her setup and attempt to muffle my voice as I ordered Prosecco just a few feet away – not that the roar of the Parlor Room next door wasn't already making her inaudible..."

And the speaking that's done, with Terry embodying Houdini and Matney in the role of Doyle, is in those worthies' actual words: transcribed from materials in the deep archives of Austin's Harry Ransom Center...."

Christian melodrama likens prayer to war against the devil

Film Review  August 28, 2015, by Kimberley Jones
"...If nothing else, this Christian melodrama presents a novel idea for home renovation. How many of us have looked at the master closet and thought, wouldn’t this make a cozy prayer space?

"Alice Leora Briggs: The Room"
The printmaker disregards clean narrative in her masterly woodcuts based on poetry by Mark Strand
Arts Review  September 3, 2015, by Seth Orion Schwaiger
"..."You don't read poetry for the kind of truth that passes for truth in the workaday world," said the late Poet Laureate Mark Strand, in a Paris Review interview with Wallace Shawn. "You don't read a poem to find out how you get to 24th Street." Those words ring doubly true when viewing a recently published artist suite of 12 wood relief and chine collé prints by Alice Leora Briggs, each corresponding to a single line of Strand's poem "The Room." These works on display at Flatbed Press are printer's prints, to be sure, flexing the strengths and long narrative/illustrative tradition of the woodcut, but their vividness and textural intensity draw in the uninitiated with an equal pull..."
