Man(agement) Slaughter

Horrible Bosses

Let’s face it: Nobody likes their job anymore. For the past few years, those of us lucky enough to punch a clock have clung to our job like a leaky rubber raft in a sea of economic uncertainty. We keep waiting for a bigger, better boat to rescue us, but none ever do. Meanwhile, our raft has started micromanaging us. “Don’t stand up and look around,” it nags. “Just be happy you’re here,” it says....

Norwegian Troll Binge

Troll Hunter

Seemingly assembled from the recycled limbs and organs of cult films from various genres, Troll Hunter is an endearing little Frankenstein’s monster of a movie. Although writer/director André Øvredal uses the exhausted imaginative crutch that is the fake-documentary format, he does so with alternating strokes of whimsy and horror. Had his bearded, burly central character been less stoically...

Cutting Room for July 6

  • You may not know it, but I’m a poet. Don’t let that stale and uninspired rhyme fool you, I’ve been a participant and fan of slam poetry since I learned how to wield awkward political metaphors with staccato delivery.

Hymn and Awe

The Tree of Life

In distinguishing between pretentious, inaccessible, pseudo-artistic prattle and actual works of genius, audiences ultimately wind up relying on Supreme Court justice Potter Stewart’s infamous method of determining what is and isn’t pornography: “I know it when I see it.” At the precise moment when writer/director Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life becomes transcendent for some, it becomes...

Cutting Room for June 29

  • Film Streams at the Ruth Sokolof Theater (filmstreams.org) is promising what thousands of dollars in plastic surgeries and ritual sacrifices to pagan gods have not delivered: immortality. At least, that’s what I presume they’re offering with Forever Young, their ongoing series of family and children’s movies that run from July 9 to October 6. Beginning with Mia and the Migoo, the series also...

Headline Blues

Page One

I won’t feign objectivity. Although director Andrew Rossi’s documentary Page One may center on The New York Times’ ongoing fight for survival, it’s more than that. The film is a snapshot of the collision between new media and mainstream journalism…with the latter as the bug, and the former as the windshield. Because there’s a chance you risked smudging your fingers to read this review, you know...
