Arts Story  July 3, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...Misdeeds know no season, but when a curiously large number of new mystery and true crime books slated for summer release was dumped off at the Chronicle offices like so many dead bodies, it seemed an optimum time to indulge our love for the unlawful. Thus, we give you July Is Crime Month, four weeks' worth of Chronicle writers and editors going down those "mean streets" and sharing what they've found there: reviews of recent crime fiction and nonfiction, interviews with authors and publishers in the field, plugs for upcoming crime-related readings and screenings, and appreciations of classic crime sagas – and their creators – in print and onscreen..."

Good Luck Penny
News Story  December 11, 1998, by Kayte VanScoy
"...Roger Scaggs' fingerprints were later lifted from two of the plastic drawers.

Go for Sisters
John Sayles' new film, which stars Edward James Olmos and LisaGay Hamilton, is the indie film icon's best work in years.
Film Review  December 6, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Still, Go for Sisters goes down so many blind alleyways in its quest to find Bernice’s son that the film sometimes feels more like an encyclopedia of social woes than a crime drama. Sequences like the visit to Fontayne’s prison girlfriend (who is now out of jail and has a child and a husband who knows nothing about her lesbian dalliance) and the Tijuana scene in which the women are shown the tunnel that crosses over to the U.S..."

Outside In
Jay Duplass and Edie Falco in a story of post-prison re-integration.
Film Review  May 25, 2018, by Kimberley Jones
"...One of the great strengths of their sensitive, contained script is that it respects the audience to piece together context without a giant info dump, and to intuit an emotion without having it broadcast via monologue. And one of the frustrations of the script’s restraint is that it steers so wide of melodrama it sometimes bypasses the drama altogether – see: Carol’s strained marriage to whatshisface – or, oppositely, creates a sense of suspense that doesn’t pay off, as in the slow-drip reveal of Chris’ long-ago crime...."

In America
The masterful storyteller Jim Sheridan, along with a wonderful cast, tell the story of a family whom you'll never forget.
Film Review  December 19, 2003, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...New York’s Hell’s Kitchen is not the kind of place people generally go when seeking spiritual renewal or even something as simple as a more positive outlook on life. Amid the tenements and crime and poverty and junkies, people who wander into the neighborhood’s clutches from elsewhere are not guaranteed safe egress; in fact, it’s more likely they’ll be sucked into the district’s downward spiral than elevated by its street rot and social decay..."
