Drive


Action

Rod Lott
To race right to the finish line, as it were, “Drive” is — so far — the year’s best film and a new crime classic.

Texas Killing Fields

Don’t mess with ‘Texas,’ a crime story whose limited release is criminal.

The Outlaw Brothers

Kickin’!


Action

Rod Lott
In the heyday of DVD, 20th Century Fox brought a lot of contemporary Asian actioners to disc in affordable, collectible editions under the “Hong Kong Legends” banner: Eastern Condors, Magnificent Butchers, Knockabout, In the Line of Duty 4, City Hunter, Naked Killer, My Lucky Stars. Watching The Outlaw Brothers reminded me of those glorious times.

SXSW 2013: Horse Thief / Colourmusic

Horse Thief takes the reins, while Colourmusic paints music to be felt.


Music

Stephen Carradini
Horse Thief’s act of draping an Oklahoma flag over one of its amp stands may have just been a proud statement of local love, but it is also a reflection of its wide-open, rootsy, rock ’n’ roll sound. The band describes itself as a “psychedelic folk rock band,” and that description isn’t bad, either.

The Thief of Bagdad

Still magical, nearly 90 years later.


Action

Rod Lott
With the Cohen Film Collection, we may have another Criterion Collection-level provider of classic movies in the making, if its Blu-ray presentation of The Thief of Bagdad is any indication.

Horse Thief — Grow Deep, Grow Wild


Indie

Zach Hale
Psychedelic folk isn’t new, but it certainly is increasing in popularity. The surge has brought such weird-minded acts as Grizzly Bear and Animal Collective to the forefront, but the downside to any emerging movement is that it inevitably will seduce those who seek to piggyback on its success.

Identity Thief

Steals a few more moments than expected.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Hate not Identity Thief, as so many have for its ridiculous, unbelievable, utterly preposterous plot. Accept that it's a big-budget screwball comedy and you may find yourself — gasp! — enjoying it.
