Probably eager to get out of period costumes (Anna Karenina, Firelight, Braveheart) and in need of a holiday, Sophie Marceau (Lila) decided to star opposite David Spade (Dylan) in Lost and Found, a little film about a little dog, an irresistible French cellist and the malnourished guy next door....

The 10-piece (that's a five-piece horn section, mister!) Imperial Swing Orchestra will make your dancing feet giddy and fingers start to poppin'!

These Royal Oak indie pop kids have more hooks than a tackle box. Add to it the band's ability to add a sort of ethereal glow to pop-rock's earthiness and you and Cloud Car have the makings of an evening of happily humming and clapping along....

These reformed ska-punks (the band features former members of Aks Mamma and the Parka Kings) have discovered that soul music can save your very soul. Don't be afraid to dance when the horny horns, the big, driving R&B beat and the chop-chop guitar chops beckon you to the hardwood floor....

The Mirror

A school in Tehran ends its day by disgorging a noisy stream of young girls who, shepherded by a few of their teachers, rush across the busy thoroughfare which runs just aside the school’s gates. The camera follows their crossing before moving on to a leisurely 360-degree pan of the...

Pushing Tin

Posted By on Wed, Apr 28, 1999 at 12:00 AM

Add Pushing Tin to the list of films that should never be shown on airplanes. The air traffic controllers at the center of this movie are so uniformly high-strung and off-kilter that the idea of putting your life in their grasp is downright terrifying. But even though director Mike...
