The Song of Sway Lake
Period family drama is evocative, if sometimes lacking in clarity
Film Review  September 21, 2018, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Accompanying Ollie is Nikolai (Sheehan), a Russian immigrant possessed of an outsized and ingratiating personality. The film’s prologue is packed with background about the fictitious Sway family history, although its jumble of visual styles and wealth of information may prove more disruptive than welcoming to viewers..."

Faith and Fear at Fantastic Fest
Action director Gareth Evans returns to Wales for the chilling Apostle
Screens Story  September 20, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...It was also Pearce who designed the village itself, a rough-hewn settlement that was deliberately not supposed to be of one specific style. Evans said, "We didn't want it to feel purely British, so there's that American Gothic feel, houses on stilts, houses we can get under." That reflects the community, who were driven there by desperation and religious ecstasy, not because of a desire to be pioneers..."

"Ann Wood: Quick and Quiet" at Big Medium
The artist's solo show is like a large-scale, experiential temporary memorial, with fake flowers rotting in a gloomy exuberance
Arts Review  September 20, 2018, by Melany Jean
"...How I Hope to Die, a tripartite piece, fills a wall with the artist's preferences for her final exit in pop-up-style patterned paper and pom-poms. "Alone if possible." "Quick and quiet." "With my mouth shut tight." The words are sprawled in painstakingly push-pinned black pom-poms..."

The Nun
The Conjuring franchise heads to Romania
Film Review  September 14, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...But he can only do so much, especially with so many baffling decisions – interchangeable supporting nuns, inexplicable accent choices, painfully laugh-resistant jokes delivered by dashing village handyman Frenchie (Bloquet), and a denouement that peddles in medieval-style Catholicism as a bundle of superpowers and trinkets. At least Hardy seems to know that this is just a 90-minute fun house ride...."

Jennifer Garner assumes an Alias to get revenge
Film Review  September 14, 2018, by Matthew Monagle

A Simple Favor
Anna Kendrick turns unlikely sleuth in this deliciously twisted romp
Film Review  September 14, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...At this point, just strap in, because A Simple Favor's plot isn't just twisty: It's so labyrinthine that you expect a minotaur to pop up. With more red herrings and American Gothic hijinks than should be seemly in polite company, the murder-mystery influences are obvious in this homage/spoof of Gillian Flynn-style femmes fatale..."

"...The film is his homage to the classic, somewhat campy, sometimes menacing era of suburban murder mysteries, where dark secrets are revealed between widowed mommy vlogger Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) and the enigmatic Emily (Blake Lively).

Point Austin: In the Shadow of the Capitol
Council approves its latest budget with the Lege over its shoulder
News Column  September 13, 2018, by Michael King
"...Although September "budget readings" are officially scheduled for three days, prior to the 10-1 Council the occasion was mostly ceremonial, with the first day – even morning – serving to officially ratify decisions that had been incrementally made in the previous weeks. Although the debates over final details in both eras have often been similar, the change has been more than a question of style..."

Channeling Bonnie Parker
Postmarks  September 10, 2018
"...["Laura Pressley Rocks On," News, Sept. 7] I couldn't find the site with the quote you cited – "In the 1940s … no one questioned the right to bear arms or to have paper ballots." Yes, she does seem to be channeling Bonnie Parker, who with her partner in small-time robbery and murder of innocent, usually low-income citizens, loved guns and could never get their hands on enough high-power military-style firearms..."

Kydd Jones
Music Review  September 6, 2018, by Clara Wang
"...After stays in Atlanta and Brooklyn, both etched into his R&B-infused rhymes, the hometown hero returns triumphant. Opener "Day 1 Freestyle," produced by ATX's own OVO rep Eric Dingus, twists Drake's signature "Run around town with my woes" into "Run around town with my ex," a nod to Jones first gaining notoriety at North by Northeast in Toronto..."

Leon Bridges Comes Home
Texan evolves past retro soulman in a modern star
DAILY Music  September 2, 2018, by Jeremy Steinberger
"...Moments that made you want to dance were as vast as those that made you want to squeeze your squeeze, as many did when he came out for an encore performance of “River.” Similar to his delivery of the Coming Home standout in 2015, Bridges, his guitar, and backup singer Brittni Jessie held the stage alone. Three years ago, he couldn’t meld such a wide range of feeling, style, and emotion...."

Devolver Digital Reigns With Game of Thrones
Local gaming house taking its swiping game to Westeros

A Different Kind of Taco
Baja-style tacos are Rosarito’s specialty, and Austin’s obsession
Food Story  August 23, 2018, by Aaron Teel
"...Constantly on the move, Rosarito's Baja-style taco and ceviche trucks are making fresh waves in a scene grown somewhat stagnant with oversaturation. In 2014, when Carlos Acosta and his cousin Mauricio Davila first parked their brightly painted taco truck alongside the other food trucks then lining the empty lot at the southwest corner of Fifth and Colorado, they were just hoping to find their place in Austin's crowded taco scene, and to offer, as Acosta says, "a different kind of Mexican food from what [people are] accustomed to in Texas."..."

Their productions are contemporary in style and the world they present, even when the forms they use may be traditional..."

Justin Stewart
Music Review  August 23, 2018, by Doug Freeman
"..."Lucynda" lilts with galloping rhythms that evoke early Paul Simon, while "Nod of Knowing" sweeps the country dance hall floor and "Jesus #9" kicks like John Prine. Even the cover of Don Williams' cheesy "I Believe in You" works with Stewart's style, especially next to deep album gem "Yellow Umbrella." With Renaissance, Stewart steps up into an elite tier of local songwriters even if his eclectic sound makes him difficult to pin down...."

Point Austin: The Circus Returns to Town
Final-day filings bump up the list of wannabe Council candidates
News Column  August 23, 2018, by Michael King
"...Oddly enough, none of the district Council races appear quite so packed with wannabes, although I presume that's because you don't get as much ego-inflation in a district race. I know, I know – the national political obsession with amateurism means every last one of us is qualified to be "Mayor of Austin" (one dubious candidate, to be nameless here, has already fashioned himself a wrestling-style championship belt carrying the title)..."

Minding the Gap
Sundance-lauded Hulu skateboarder doc surpasses Thrasher equation
Film Review  August 17, 2018, by Danielle White
"...His proximity to the material makes for some rather questionable directorial decisions (he sometimes frames people’s faces too closely), and he’s an unassertive presence behind the lens. There’s a scene where Zach asks him if he wants to act like Bing is there or isn’t, and Bing replies, “Just do whatever you want.” The way he speaks to his interview subjects has the calming tone of a therapist or counselor rather than the probing or investigative style we are used to in documentary filmmaking..."
