Cutting Room for May 18

  • Am I the only one who assumes that “D-BOX” seats are reserved for faux-hawk wearing loud-talkers who dress in glittery Ed Hardy shirts? Turns out, they’re not. They’re actually “motion technology” movie theater seats that “pitch, roll and heave in perfect sync with the action taking place onscreen.” The pitching and rolling sounds like fun, but heaving in one’s seat seems like a...

Gotta Serve Somebody

Of Gods and Men

Although Of Gods and Men, a dramatization of the fate of Trappist monks in a civil war-torn Algeria in the mid-‘90s resonates deeply with recent history in the Middle East, its power and scope is much broader than that. French director Xavier Beauvois and co-writer Etienne Comar combine themes of colonization and rebellion, poverty and corruption, terrorism and pacifism into a riveting, yet...

Girl’s Club

Bridesmaids

Bridesmaids is the anti-chick-flick. There are no hopeless romantics here; no star-crossed lovers or coincidental interventions from Cupid. It's a picture about love, friendship and change, but without any of the frothy cuteness or frilly emotional waste. There is, however, plenty of tennis court violence, mile-high pill-popping and girl-on-girl vomiting. And, believe it or not, it finds time...

School 57, Where Are You?

You don’t need Facebook in Moscow. Keeping track of classmates is easy — you simply stomp up the stairs to the cramped apartment where your old friend used to live and, odds are, they’re still there. What’s hard is keeping up with the capitalist pace of new Russia while having grown up back in the U.S.S.R., or feigning surprise when a documentary sheds light on this problem. In My...

Cutting Room for May 11

  • Once I asked an ex-girlfriend if she liked Fellini and she said she preferred ravioli. If she’s out there reading this, I recommend highly that she check out Amarcod, director Federico Fellini’s 1973 Academy Award-winning flick, at Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater (filmstreams.org) on May 17 at 7 p.m. The film is a joint presentation with the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts and will be...

<p>Thor, starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, flirts with spectacular  — unfortunately, Hollywood execs have them flirting too much with each other.<br /> .  </p>
Mjolnir? I Hardly Knew Her!

Thor

Someone tell the soulless, suit-wearing executive of suck who perpetually insists upon shoehorning a wafer-thin, nausea-inducing love story into each and every action-heavy motion picture that he’s basically dropping a turd into a pool party. The lasses and dudes who comprise the core audience have never swayed an uninterested buddy into attending a comic book flick by promising an...
