"...Shot almost entirely within the confines of Austin Film Society board member Deborah Green's labyrinthine Park City, Utah, mansion – the site of the society's annual Sundance Film Festival parties and the Austin film community's unofficial Utah headquarters – Lovers of Hate follows the sideways spiral of the woeful Rudy (Chris Doubek), a failed writer recently separated from his wife, Diana (Heather Kafka), who's had all the Rudy she can take and ends up falling for Paul (Alex Karpovsky), Rudy's sibling rival, a successful writer of children's books. Extremely awkward quasi-hilarity (and no small amount of self-loathing from virtually the entire, uniformly excellent cast) ensues...."
"...Returning this year as emcee is actor and Texas rancher Thomas Haden Church, whose notable appearances over the years include such films as Sideways and Spider-Man 3 and the TV miniseries Broken Trail, for which he received an Emmy...."
"...AC: You've moved to illustrated kids' books (although, again, that began with Opus with A Wish for Wings That Work) and now your first novel. What motivated that sideways shift?..."

"...Mentally, Byington has moved on to the next film, even if corporeally he's required to push this one still. The new film, called Seven Chinese Brothers, is a comedy about a man struggling to learn how to tell the truth; Jim Taylor (Sideways) will executive produce..."
"...The conversation dies while he fiddles with bottled waters and coffee cups. When he's ready for your interview, he walks over straight-on and leaning slightly sideways shakes your hand stronglike..."
"...The movie: The Adventures of Jody Shanan. The horses the "Indian" actors rode were terrified of all that gunfire! Some Indians fell off when the horses spooked and jumped sideways..."
"...However, if the pilot, which aired last Sunday, is any indication, Hung will be much more than a show about a man who is well-endowed. Considering it's executive produced by Dmitry Lipkin (the creator of FX's woefully underappreciated and now canceled The Riches) and Alexander Payne (director of the Oscar-winning Sideways), this should come as no surprise..."
"...Acevedo also took a couple sideways shots at the Travis Co. courthouse – seemingly both at the bench and the District Attorney's Office – saying that sending the cases through the federal system (where they would end up anyway in a joint operation), meant longer sentences and "no rocket docket here, no spank on the hands." The attitude in Austin is sometimes "dismissive" when it comes to drugs, but as a "major corridor" from Mexico through the U.S..."
"...• Recycling: A long-expected reorganization of Solid Waste Services was announced Friday, as 14-year Director William Rhodes was shuffled sideways to head up the new Code Compliance division; the city also appointed a new human resources director. See "Beside the Point."..."

Turns out the 22-year-old Poplawski is a raving anti-Semite, white supremacist, and gun fanatic who a few times posted comments to Jones' Infowars website (or the related Prison Planet), a connection initially discovered by the Anti-Defamation League as it tracked Poplawski's various Web names..."
"...But Wade's straightforward investigation soon began to go sideways. Vijay's father, Earl Staelin, called to say his son was acting strangely – crawling around on the floor when he already knew how to walk, for example..."

"...after a performance at Austin's Alamo Roadhouse in October 1978. Introduced here by KLBJ's Charlie Hodge, Cross and his fourpiece band opened the second show with "Never Be the Same." It was like stepping into an adult contemporary time machine set to 1980 – the last gasp of West Coast studio polish bravely asserting itself in the sneering faces of New Wavers with sideways haircuts..."
