"...While not always dramatically successful, The Song of Sway Lake earns big points for originality. The film has a distinctive tone, look, and setting, which are supported by strong performances (one of them by the greatly missed Elizabeth Peña, who died in 2014, making this her final film appearance – somehow appropriate to this movie about how the past can impinge on the present)...."
"...At the relatively new and always packed Sway Modern Thai restaurant on South First, they offer a special family-style feast called Moo Sway. It is only available twice a day, and must be reserved in advance...."
"...Thailand's Songkran festival takes its name from the Sanskrit word for "astrological passage" and commemorates the coming of the New Year. The kitchen at Sway offers an enticing list of special menu items to enhance the celebration...."
"...Six years later and now with a third location, New Waterloo's modern Thai restaurant Sway is well on its way to building an empire, all under its neon lotus flower sigil...."
"...Sway is hosting their first ever pop-up with chefs Retno Pratiwi and Peter Gelling of Boston’s Kaki Lima. Sway executive chef Martin Wilda will be collaborating on the meal featuring traditional Indonesian street food like Gulai Brussels sprouts, sambal hijau, acar, and more..."
"...This film’s humanistic subplots bring to mind both Saving Private Ryan and the unfairly forgotten 1970 gem Kelly’s Heroes, but to be fair, Bondarchuk’s film is very much its own, unique tale. (Although like Spielberg’s take on the darkest aspects of World War II, Stalingrad is bookended by the narration of one of the latter-day progeny of the stricken, titular city; flashbacks ensue.) Russian patriotism and military pride hold sway in Bondarchuk’s IMAX 3-D apocalypse, but so, too, does a cordite-scented romance, sacred remembrance, and the lessons (un-)learned upon the corpses of millions...."
"...Long after his death, Hitchcock’s contradictions continue to hold us in his sway. Both a consummate showman and a savvy artist, Hitchcock can be all things to all people..."
"...But back to that flood: With it, Anderson and his co-writer Roman Coppola have crafted an elegant and emphatic metaphor for adolescence, that tumultuous province of firsts and lasts. It's the end of the world as they know it and suddenly, too, a new world for the taking – an elating contradiction perfectly in step with this ever-tender film's sway between antic and woebegone...."
"...Bite-size facts about mountaintop mining are splashed on the screen, but no substantiating sources are for the information are credited. I don’t so much disagree with the statements as doubt whether this piece of advocacy journalism has the goods to sway any doubters..."
"...She, like many of his conquests, is an admiring student, many years his junior. Consuela is not unlike the others who annually fall sway to his lust, yet there is a quality about her that stirs Kepesh’s dormant desires for love and commitment, an awakening he finds all the more disturbing for having believed such impulses to have been vanquished decades ago, when he chose to leave his wife and son..."
"...One might be inclined to call the ever-tippling Sebastian a playboy, but he’s too guileless for that, and too puppyishly besotted with Charles. (As with the novel, the parameters of their friendship are never explicitly laid out, although the film does introduce a drunken kiss.) The film’s first passage, with its bucolic setting and collegial passes by way of naked fountain dips, is fine enough, but Brideshead Revisited becomes a far more interesting picture when it puts the frolicking aside to explore the insidious sway of Sebastian’s homestead of Brideshead, which is as much an idea as it is a house (and more like a mausoleum than a place to call home)..."
"...In the midst of all these harrumphing old men, and trying with all the hortatory earnestness of youth to rouse their snoozing indignation, stands abolitionist William Wilberforce (Gruffudd), who must be the most handsome member of Parliament in the history of Great Britain. With his leading-man looks, unshakable conviction, and dulcet voice, young Wilberforce has charms to soothe his rivals, but he’s sorely lacking the political guile necessary to sway their opinions..."
"...The problem is not that Bruno and Sonia are teenage parents. The problem is that Bruno is an opportunist and an abuser of goodwill, an emotional child who wheedles and schemes and squirms, and Sonia is too much in his sway..."
"...One suspects that von Trotta, whose films throughout the decades have paid special attention to women’s issues, views Rosenstrasse as an unheralded example of the power of women working together. Yet, not only does von Trotta fail to capture the sway and drama of the Rosenstrasse resistance in this movie, she also muddies the human fictional drama she creates as our passageway through these events..."
"..."We’re all beautiful, lonely people," he coos. Jonathan, who’s in love with Bobby, looks on in horror, but there’s such a powerful sway about the sweet-natured Bobby that no one can resist him..."
"...Schickel, Time magazine’s longtime film critic, has crafted what must be the final word on Chaplin’s life and work. Narrated by Sydney Pollack and more than two hours long, it’s both a veritable treasure trove of little-seen footage from both Chaplin’s screen work and his none-too-private life, and it goes a tremendous way toward explaining why the recent re-release of Chaplin’s masterpiece Modern Times (opening in Austin next week at the Dobie) still somehow holds sway over the imagination of audiences like few, if any, modern comedies can..."
"...Where did these guys come from? And why are they so popular? Bittersweet Motel gamely tries to answer those two core questions but I'm still as mystified as I was going in. Isn't one Grateful Dead enough? There's little here to sway the anti-Phish crowds, but audiences unfamiliar with the band's work will likely find all this Woodstockana vaguely appealing, especially in the wake of last year's ghastly, abusive Woodstock '99..."
"...As with the music of The Presidents of the United States of America, protracted exposure to manic whimsicality can be a serious headache-maker. But as a weekend group outing, when a giddy openness to juvenilia in all forms is holding sway, this might be just your ticket...."
"...Loomis, though this time the role is hardly more than an extended cameo (Pleasence died shortly after filming wrapped, and the film is dedicated to his memory). To be fair, the film has a sense of uniformity to it: from the acting, to the lighting, to every other aspect of the production, mediocrity holds sway over all..."
"...With time, their newly acquired skill teaches them discipline, fraternity and selflessness and enables them to rid the school of the drug scourge and, eventually, graduate. But mostly they get to kick and flip and jump and sway....."
"...At almost three hours length, The Best Intentions is a lush period piece that manages to keep the audience more or less absorbed despite its lengthy running time. Trapped in turn-of-the-century Sweden, where a rigid class-system holds sway, Henrik finds himself running up against the indomitable will of Anna's mother, a powerful matriarch who feels it would be beneath her daughter's standing to marry this meek little theologian..."
"...So, the upshot is thus: if you're a fan of Spalding Gray's performance work, you're likely to enjoy this piece despite its structural problems and appreciate the one-on-one engagement between storyteller and audience. If you're inclined to find Gray a tad too precious and self-absorbed, Monster won't do anything to sway you from those beliefs...."
"...This will require swaying local decisions, and the votes of new reps in new seats like John Carter and Dan Gattis, in the non-cities with non-polities that GOP redistricting pretends are real places. (Where, exactly, is the "core" of the new Dist..."
"...Sway1417 S. First, 326-1999 Sun.-Wed., 11am-10pm; Thu.-Sat., 11am-11pm www.swayaustin.com..."
"...My own Texas-bred, debilitating ophidiophobia always meant avoiding them at all costs – that is until I saw a heart-stopping picture on Facebook that gave me pause. Gabe Hernandez, sous chef at Sway, posted a photo of a skinned, coiled rattler on a plate, ready for the grill, with some vibrant accoutrements..."
"...As of yesterday, December 5, Sway’s third location in West Lake Hills is open. Complete with late night hours and a rooftop bar that functions as a private event space and boasts impressive views of downtown Austin, guests can sip cocktails and enjoy savory bites from a condensed food menu..."
"...So be engaging and talk to your server and bartender. They will work to nail the pairing in the moment. Sway: Nate Wales..."
"...The Stones in Cologne. Love You Live, partied in Paris '76-'77, crushing bootleg Brussels Affair 1973, and the Wembley chorus on 1991's Flashpoint all held exotic sway in the gatefold reveries of a Stones native..."
"...Chase Gintner of Sway..."
"...Once upon a time, Henry Ford handed out a copy with every new Ford purchased, and Adolf Hitler paraphrased portions in his own writings. Today it remains a top-seller among white-supremacist and some black-separatist organizations, and can be seen to still hold sway over certain media and political mouthpieces in various parts of the world..."
"...If you're looking to have a substantial rainy day meal, and if it's not coming down too hard, you could sit outside on the patio at Sway and eat spicy Thai salads, raw and vibrant with lime juice. This is best enjoyed on weekend days when you can go for a muddy walk in the park with someone cute, then head over to wash down oysters and wild boar ribs with Tiger beer, the sharpness of the flavors carving out a space in the funk of jungle heat..."
"...Beverage director JR Mocanu's drinks are equally innovative. Order the Sif's Song, tomato- and caper berry-infused aquavit served with a simple syrup of thyme, sea salt, orange peel, and black pepper. Sway1417 S..."
"...Down the road in San Antonio, chef Quealy Watson at Hot Joy takes a classic red tomato curry redolent of fragrant Thai basil, makrut lime, coconut milk, and fish sauce, and adds tripe for a distinctive South Texas flair. (Offal is not alien to Thai cuisine, but the choice here is both transparent and deliberate.) Sway here in Austin gives a similar Texan goose to an already-hybrid dish, the prawn miange..."
"...Sixth) just in time for SXSW, another new Eastside venue has made its debut: Fair Market (1105 E. Fifth) is a new event facility brought to us by a joint partnership of longtime neighborhood businessman Richard Kooris of Pegalo Properties, Dennis McDaniel of Austin Fairchild Management, Jesse Herman and Delfo Trombetta of La Condesa and Sway, as well as James Moody and Graham Williams of Transmission Events..."
"...Gone are the days of chicken-fried steak and bland Tex-Mex. (OK, so maybe they're not gone, but they've taken a backseat.) Food at places like Uchi, Barley Swine, Foreign & Domestic, and Sway is about experimentation, novelty, and, increasingly, art...."
"...On the other side of the wooden table were contestants: Austin Finley of parkside; Chase Gintner of Sway; Casey Keese of Swift's Attic; and Matt "Gary" Lester of Foreign & Domestic. Each competitor’s work was very impressive, and eliminations were made based on small technicalities..."
"...Competing this time were the following: Joaquin Ceballos of Sway, Corey Macks of Parkside, Dan Gamoran of La Condesa, and Coliman Uribe of Swift's Attic. These contestants had completely different experiences from competitors in previous rounds..."
"...We're interested in highlighting new chefs," she says. Her list for this year includes Sway, Lenoir, and Hillside Farmacy..."
"...Friday night I had the opportunity to see for myself just how successful upscale Thai can be when I attended the Friends and Family dinner at Sway...."
"...Sway is making it easier to be the host or hostess with the most (or mostess) at home with $15 takeout specials like the one dozen chicken wings glazed with chili caramel, fish sauce, ginger, and cilantro, served with sides of buttermilk slaw, celery, and jasmine rice. They’ll also be showing the game on the rooftop bar of Sway Westlake, where the lovely skyline provides a nice distraction if you only ventured outside of the house because it’s Sunday funday...."
"...10) TIE: ELDORADO CAFE/SWAY Adding watermelon to a cocktail obviously makes it a health drink. If you're sweet, the Eldorado bartender might make you a secret menu Sandinista, but if not, opt for the Tamarindo..."
"...Cue D’Souza strolling around historic sites, with fashionable scarves and a look of perpetual questioning, as if he hasn’t already run the numbers and figured out the score. Look, this is a film that either speaks to you or not; it is not something that is going to sway you by telling heart-wrenching stories of Sophie Scholl or “seeing the other side,” by interviewing Richard Spencer, an interview that goes nowhere, that reveals D’Souza for what he is, someone who anticipates the answer as he asks the question..."
"...They smiled at one another as they crossed the stage hip-to-hip in a seated position, wiggling their haunches to move forward. The overall effect of this method of locomotion was strikingly similar to that of walking: sway, transfer weight, sway, transfer weight..."
"...Terry's, Hai Hospitality, and Snap Kitchen, among others. He describes designing the lighting element at Sway: "A deliberate lighting concept can make a big difference in making a small space feel special..."
"...New Haven-style pizzeria Salvation Pizza, fast-casual Indian eatery Tarka, and drunken Jenga hot spot Kung Fu Saloon. On the horizon: the third location of New Waterloo's upscale Thai eatery Sway; California tonkotsu shop Jinya Ramen; Dallas-based Velvet Taco; three-story oonce-ooncerie the Rose Room; and the second Second Bar + Kitchen...."
"...Attempting to put the past behind them, Jeanne is visited by the Devil (Nakadai) who takes the form of a small phallus. Promising her power and a hold on those who betrayed her (spoiler alert: Jean turns out to not be the greatest husband), she flees to the forest and becomes a witch, succumbing to the Devil, and eventually commanding respect and holding great sway over the village peasants, much to the annoyance of the Lord and his Mistress (Shimegi)..."
"...I slosh spoonfuls of pho onto my coffee table and drop heaps of rice onto my lap. The appearance of togarashi spiced quail on Sway's recent Songkran menu kickoff brought me to near tears..."
"...Sway is celebrating their third year anniversary with a special menu from executive chef Martin Wilda. Enjoy single battered frog legs, koi pla (a wild striped bass crudo with yuzu, coconut cream, marked lime, and roasted banana pepper), and brioche (we’ll let this one surprise you)..."
"...A “paper town” is a fictitious settlement on a map used to identify copyright infringements, but the above-it-all Margo uses the term here to criticize the middle-class life to which Quentin aspires. This condescending attitude might play if Margo possessed a crazy charisma that blinds others’ ability to see through her, but the badly miscast Delevingne communicates nothing to suggest the sway she holds over her lovesick admirer..."
"...We begin with Cambodia’s independence from being a French colony in 1953, that country still having a cultural sway over the music of the day. Soon, Afro-Cuban and American doo-wop start to influence the sound, and all of a sudden it’s 1965 and the U.S..."
