Escape from Tomorrow

With Escape from Tomorrow, one fears the story behind the movie would loom larger than the movie itself. Luckily, that is not the case. After all, it opens with a decapitation on Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster.

William Friedkin spends a lot of time in his 2013 memoir discussing why Sorcerer didn't click with critics and audiences even though he believes it to be better than his previous film, The Exorcist. Now that Warner Home Video has reissued Sorcerer on Blu-ray, we can see what Friedkin's fuss is all about.

Broadchurch: The Complete First Season

Welcome to the coastal resort of Broadchurch, population … oh, who can keep track, what will all the corpses? Yes, Broadchurch is yet another British television procedural involving the search for a murderer in a quaint little town, just like the limited series The Fall and Top of the Lake.

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones

Essentially part five in the ridiculously profitable horror franchise, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones continues the found-footage conceit of the other films. The difference is instead of the scares taking place in rich white suburbia, they do so in a junky apartment complex on a largely Latino side of Oxnard, Calif.

Four Sheets to the Wind

None November 1st, 2007


Reviewer's grade: B


On the day his father commits suicide, Cufe Smallhill's familiar world starts to change. Cufe (Cody Lightning) leaves his mother's house to visit his sister Miri (Tamara Podemski) in Tulsa, where she lives, works, steals, drinks and sleeps around. On his first day in town Cufe meets Francie (Laura Bailey), and Cufe starts coming out of his shell, realizing his world has many more possibilities than he ever thought.


Written and directed by Oklahoman Sterlin Harjo, "Four Sheets to the Wind" was shot on location in Holdenville and Tulsa. While not action-packed, the character-driven story has a steady impetus and subtle humor that draws one in, and the relatively unknown actors display a skill and sensitivity that speaks of good things for their future careers. It's screening at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art Thursday through Sunday, and Nov. 5 in Meacham Auditorium at the University of Oklahoma; Harjo will be present at the latter. R
