Charlene deGuzman Tackles Sex and Love Addiction in SXSW Film Unlovable
Love is sickness, not the cure in this anti-rom-com
Screens Story  March 8, 2018, by Michael Agresta
"..."Because I was in recovery and in terrible withdrawal, in such emotional and physical pain, I turned to creativity," deGuzman said. Over the course of just a few days, deGuzman, who had never written a script before, produced a TV pilot script that would eventually become the basis of Unlovable, her first feature film..."

Body Parts
Director Red, whose previous credits include the screenplays for The Hitcher and Near Dark (two of the best horror/thrillers of the mid-eighties), spent a lot of time piloting a cab...
Film Review  August 9, 1991, by Marc Savlov
"...It's as if mid-script rewrites were done in the midst of shooting, without the benefit of informing anyone even remotely related to the film. Brad Dourif turns in another of his patented Unlovable Weirdo roles, and there's some hilariously unintentional humor here, but besides that, Body Parts is about as effective as a prosthetic nostril...."

Esther Pearl Watson
The artist's new UFO-centric paintings are rooted in the saucers her dad used to build
Arts Story  June 12, 2009, by Audra Schroeder
"...Awkwardness informs Watson's other projects, like the comic strip Unlovable. She created its plucky, sarcastic heroine, Tammy Pierce, after finding the tortured diary of a 15-year-old girl in a truck stop restroom, dated from the 1980s..."

Happy Endings
Movie about master manipulators and the people who love them is rife with surprises.
Film Review  July 29, 2005, by Kimberley Jones
"...Happy Endings is unabashedly sentimental (cheekily couched in a black-comic guise), with Roos acting as a sort of benevolent god over his characters. With the intertitles, he quietly tips over the fourth wall; in an early instance, he urges us to give Mamie a second chance, knowing that at first glance she appears unlovable..."

Slash director loves John waters and a sci-fi classic
Screens Story  June 16, 2016
"...The first is Joe Meno's amazing love letter to high school wannabe punks, Hairstyles of the Damned. The other is a comic book called Unlovable, by ex-Texan Esther Pearl Watson, and it's apparently based on some girl's actual high school diary that Watson found in a gas station bathroom and decided to illustrate...."

Joshua Ferris brings his working writer's style to Austin
DAILY Books  May 23, 2014, by Rod Machen
"...Paul is a mess: He’s an atheist who’s interested in religion, a quasi-Luddite obsessed with his iPhone, and a Red Sox fan living in New York. As the story moves forward, all of these contradictions create trouble for our unlovable main character...."

Music Story  March 18, 2011, by Margaret Moser
"...I noticed her, but it made no difference to me because I was in that unmanned state. For some reason, at my most unlovable – physically, I'm not attractive anyway – but I was at my ugliest, spiritually, at my most detestable [point], this girl who knew nothing about me insisted on loving me, or loving a part of me that she divined was still lovable...."

Guidance for Parentals Suggested
George Ratliff on Joshua
Screens Story  July 13, 2007, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Ratliff's film taps into some deeply rooted, and often unacknowledged, parental fears. What if a parent winds up truly disliking his or her child? Is there a point at which postpartum depression stops being a biological reaction and becomes an emotional response instead? Are some children genuinely unlovable? With that in mind, the movie is probably not advisable viewing for expectant parents...."

Book Reviews
The bad news: Melanie Haupt isn't satisfied with Sandra Cisneros' eagerly awaited epic. The good? Read on.
Books Story  October 4, 2002, by Melanie Haupt
"...In it, Cisneros charts the trials and tribulations of the Reyes family, traveling back and forth from Chicago to Mexico to San Antonio, dancing through the 20th century with an eye for scandal, sexy seductresses, and sweaty, stolen moments. Our narrator is Lala, a precocious girl who describes dusty family car trips to Mexico, recounts the endless machinations of her Awful Grandmother, Soledad, and, after her discovery of the unfinished, handmade silken shawl of brown -- a precious caramelo -- begins to knit her own tapestry, attempting to weave something beautiful out of some very unlovable people..."

Screens Review  August 4, 2000, by Sarah Hepola
"...He even pilfers lyrics from Mann's "Deathly" for dialogue: "Now that I've met you," the coke-addled Claudia (Walters) exclaims on her first date with police officer Jim Kurring (Reilly), "would you object to never seeing me again?" Notably, Mann's songs are about her record company and the torture of dealing with them, while Anderson admits his story stems from falling in love with singer-songwriter Fiona Apple and a year in which cancer came like a wave into his life. But songwriter and scriptwriter are wailing about the same emotions -- feeling unlovable, the pain of losing, the need to connect and the fear that it kicks up inside -- and as such, their art works hand in hand...."
