Cause for Alarm
An intelligent script and tightly realized tension eventually fizzle with an anticlimactic ending; still, Cause for Alarm is an interesting little "B" noir.

Rosalie Goes Shopping
Rosalie Goes Shopping -- starring German sex symbol Marianne Sägebrecht -- has a smirking preciousness that gets in the way of its broad satire of American consumerism.

Intern
Intern isn't a particularly deep movie, but, to paraphrase Karl Lagerfeld, fashion is not the same thing as feeding the hungry and curing the ill.

June 22, 2001 Screens Review by Jerry Renshaw

From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangman's Daughter
Yet another bloodbath featuring guns, vampires, and naked women.

June 8, 2001 Screens Review by Mike Emery

The Gold Diggers of 1933
On the surface, Gold Diggers is fluffy musical fare with Busby Berkeley's delightfully surreal production numbers, but the Great Depression left its mark on the film.

June 1, 2001 Screens Review by Jerry Renshaw

My Cousin Vinny
My Cousin Vinny combines a good dose of Northeastern pomposity and Southern ignorance to produce a great comedy.

June 1, 2001 Screens Review by Eli Kooris
