Screens Column  March 1, 2002, by Marc Savlov
"...Anyone who's ever checked out Knowles' (in)famous Web site -- -- knows what to expect, although with Dreamworks honcho Mike DeLuca blurbing "Knowles is the Indiana Jones of film fandom" on the dust jacket, the stakes appear to be raised ("Quick, Harry, Nazis!").

Earnest Eighties bands get a second chance on XM Radio.
DAILY News  May 2, 2007, by Christopher Gray
"...Over the years, critical myth-making has largely confined itself to the not-getting-any camp (go figure), while the former is ignored if not outright abhorred – no one is asking Simple Minds to reunite at Coachella. But it's a good 20% of XM Radio's classic alternative channel Fred (XM 44), and you can make a decent-sized playlist – or mixtape, for those who remember such ancient notions – of these moody British Isle (and Commonwealth) bands who weren't afraid to take rock & roll seriously..."

"..."The title may be misleading," he admits. "I think the film is a lot more positive."

"...The steady pulse of drum machine keeps Echeverri's perfect elocution sashaying from elongated vowels to pointy consonants ("Ya Yo No"), the musical mix an impeccable steel twist of expert keyboard programs, coconut percussion, and steel strings.
