Exorcismus

Rite on!


Horror

Rod Lott
Spain’s English-language indie “Exorcismus” is what I wanted America’s big-budget “The Rite” to be: worth watching.

No bull

Get tempted by the flavors of Spain at this unique, enticing Bricktown restaurant.


Restaurant Reviews

Joshua Boydston
Bolero Spanish Grill & Tapas Bar faced many uncertainties when it opened in late 2009, and by that, I mean people uncertain of what tapas were.

HOOPS! (There it isn't)


CFN

Gazette staff
The NBA’s first work stoppage since 1998 isn’t stopping a slew of headlines raining down from the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Last Circus

Send in the clowns.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Álex de la Iglesia, Spain's clown prince of cinema, making a movie about warring clowns? It's such a natural, I'm surprised he hadn't done it before now.

The Hidden Face

Too bad the marketing doesn’t also hide the surprise.


Thriller

Rod Lott
When Adrián (Quim Gutiérrez) left Spain for a one-year conducting gig with the Bogotá Philharmonic, he took his adoring girlfriend, Belen, with him. But one day, he comes home to a video message of her announcing she's leaving him, and not to come looking for her. It's as enigmatic as it is out of left field.

Extraterrestrial

A close encounter of the awkward kind.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
One of the hotter tickets at last fall's Fantastic Fest was Extraterrestrial. I couldn't get in. I understood why at the time: It's the new film from Timecrimes director Nacho Vigalondo! Now that I've seen it, I wonder how many who did get in wish they hadn't. It's a huge disappointment.

Penumbra

Unlike the filmmakers’ previous thriller, you won’t break a ‘Sweat.’


Thriller

Rod Lott
Penumbra is Spanish for "partly in the shadows," which is how we first find the fourth-floor apartment that Margarita Sanchez (Cristina Brondo, Dario Argento's Do You Like Hitchcock?) shows to Jorge Kepler (Berta Muñiz), representative for a prospective renter willing to pay four times the going rate, and for a full year in advance.

Juan of the Dead

Experience the Cuban gristle crisis.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Don't call them "zombies" — call them "dissidents." That's one of a few well-aimed bits of political satire that populate the Spanish-language romp Juan of the Dead, but worry not: They're used sparingly and none come heavy-handed — a Castro polemic, this isn't.

Ten Thousand More Ways to Die: Spaghetti Western Collection

Saddle up ... for, oh, about 18 hours.


Western

Rod Lott
Anyone who believes public-domain DVD box sets don't contain any good movies, take note: You're dead wrong.
