IN LIMITED RELEASE! A couple of quick facts about corn and sex: Corn is promiscuous. Corn “plays with itself,” essentially fertilizing its own kernels using its own tassel and silk. That big bite of juicy sweet corn you just bit off the cob is actually a big mouthful of ripened ovaries. Um, um. There’s good eatin’!

THE CHATEAU

IN THEATERS IN LIMITED RELEASE! I’m not quite sure why the French have such a ‘tude when it comes to Americans. Okay, we should take the blame for McDonald’s, Wal-Mart and Starbucks. But when you consider that we pretty much saved their bacon twice in the last century, you’d think they might cut us some slack…

THE LAST KISS (L’Ultimo Bacio)

OPENING IN NEW YORK THIS WEEKEND! “The Last Kiss” is very much a Hollywood romantic comedy, only without the American stars and with a lot more temper to it. Accessible and dealing with the most familiar of subject matters, “The Last Kiss” makes a good chick flick for guys who want to appear artsy by taking their date to a foreign language film…

COW MONKEY

SCREENING AT THE SF INDIEFEST MICROCINEMA, JULY 26TH! “Cow Monkey” is so stupid, it’s fun…

WAITING

An artsy-fartsy French film about a mother and daughter having the same boyfriend wickedly degenerates in seven minutes into an American tabloid TV show about the same trashed-out subjects…

THE DANGEROUS LIVES OF ALTAR BOYS

IN THEATERS IN LIMITED RELEASE! Director Peter Care enhances his narrative with superbly over-the-top animated sequences by Todd McFarlane featuring the Atomic Trinity in action against a demonic Sister Assumptia and her evil band of biker nuns! A far more accurate representation of adolescent life in the 70s than, say, “That 70s Show”…

KWIK STOP

“Falling in love will break your heart…” the soundtrack for “Kwik Stop” wails…

ONE THOUSAND YEARS

SXSW FIRST FILMS NARRATIVE REVIEW! Videotape is way too cheap. Because it’s so cheap, we’re all being subjected to this so-called “DV Revolution” in filmmaking…

MARTIN AND ORLOFF

SXSW FIRST FILMS NARRATIVE REVIEW! Brought to us courtesy of the improv troupe Upright Citizen’s Brigade, “Martin and Orloff” initially turns the dour field of psychiatry into an amusing, absurdist romp…
