Tars Tarkas

Posted By on Wed, Jul 14, 1999 at 12:00 AM

The recombinant sounds created by Eric Gustafson (of Blue Dog acclaim) and Dean Western (of Larval and many other musical permutations) add an electronic wall of wash to a jazz base. Lovely, entrancing and you can sway to it, too!...

Arlington Road

Posted By on Wed, Jul 14, 1999 at 12:00 AM

When Prof. Michael Faraday (Jeff Bridges) lectures about the American Revolution at George Washington University, he isn’t thinking about 200 years ago. His all-too-contemporary class, made even more popular by an intense oratory style used to rile up his complacent students, is about domestic terrorism. Faraday’s passion has personal...

It’s Back to the Future in Wild Wild West as Monsieur Jules Verne, tired from his 80 Days Around the World, stops to catch his breath somewhere between West Virginia and Washington, D.C., tormented – for the first time – by the putrid thought that maybe "bigger" and "larger-than-life"...

Run Lola Run

Posted By on Wed, Jul 7, 1999 at 12:00 AM

One of the arguments currently espoused by film reviewers is that MTV, with its rapid, non sequitur editing style, has ruined the movies, turning them into fast-paced visual jumbles for an audience which can no longer tolerate anything less than constant stimulation.

In an era of dumbed-down cinema, films made for kids often suffer the worst fate, as formula stories are made even more mind-numbingly simplistic, or insidiously moronic characters – Barney, anyone? – are given free rein. Shiloh 2: Shiloh Season comes as a breath of fresh air, and not...
