Sleepwalk with Me

From A to Zzzz, comedian Mike Birbiglia’s account of his noctural disorder is a sleeper hit.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Early in Sleepwalk with Me, protagonist Matt Pandamiglio (comedian Mike Birbiglia, more or less playing himself) addresses via narration the feelings his character holds for his live-in girlfriend, Abby (Lauren Ambrose, Wanderlust) with the lines, “I think falling in love for the first time is such a transcendent feeling. It's like pizza-flavored ice cream: Your brain can't even process that level of joy.”

This Is 40

Middle age seems muddle-aged in Judd Apatow's familial comedy.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach
Judd Apatow has given us some hilariously raunchy comedies, but This Is 40 finds the writer-director in his grown-up mode, at least in intent, extracting the funny from the advent of middle age. But his understanding of life in the 40s isn’t necessarily the universal kind.

‘Land’ ho!

Look, up in the sky! It’s local artist Rick Sinnett, working on ‘This Land,’ a mural adorning the outside of Rocktown Climbing Gym.


Visual Arts

Liz Blood

Drive Interstate 40 just south of Bricktown, and you might see artist Rick Sinnett. He’s the one swinging from a rope anchored to the top of Rocktown Climbing Gym, wrangling a 5-gallon bucket of paint as he works on his latest mural, This Land.

This movie is not.


Action

Rod Lott
In the case of This Girl Is Badass, the young woman in question is bike messenger Jukkalan (Jeeja Yanin, Chocolate). Indeed, she is.

This Is the End

If only that were true ...


Comedy

Louis Fowler
To me, few things are as annoying as being stuck in a conversation with a group of stoners who’ve spent most of the day tokin’ it up.

Stories We Tell

Family matters.


Documentary

Rod Lott
Stories We Tell is not only one of the year's best documentaries, but one of the format's more unique exercises of our time. You may have seen a story of this type before — just not told in this imaginative a fashion. I was reminded of the rush I felt encountering Errol Morris' The Thin Blue Line or Michael Moore's Roger & Me in the late 1980s, and thinking, "Wow, a documentary can be like this, too?"
