Nice Guys Don’t Work in Hollywood: The Adventures of an Aesthete in the Movie Business — Curtis Harrington

But Harrington did!


Rod Lott
Curtis Harrington’s autobiography is how I imagine the man to have been: soft-spoken, honest and intelligent. Those wondering, “Who’s Curtis Harrington?” should know that is part of the book’s point. Here was a talented filmmaker who never quite got his due, for reasons that had nothing to do with creativity and everything to do with commerce. Here was an artist who worked in a system that had no interest in art.

Reel change

Molly Evans
With last Friday’s showing of the Norwegian adventure Kon-Tiki, the Oklahoma City Museum of Art reopened its 250-seat Noble Theater, debuting more than $160,000 of digital renovations.

Magic Magic

It could use some, use some


Rod Lott
Michael Cera … scary? It's one of the last adjectives I'd apply to Arrested Development's poster child of awkward pauses, yet in the odd thriller Magic Magic, the vibe he exudes is nothing if not uncomfortably creepy. Give him credit for not playing another Indie Mopey Hoodie Boy.

A Boy and His Dog

Overlooked in its time, the cult classic is unearthed and given the Blu-ray treatment. Don Johnson in hi-fi!


Patrick Crain
There is something truly remarkable about A Boy and His Dog: the ability to remain under the radar despite all its cultural touchstones, owing a debt of gratitude to L.Q. Jones’s adaptation of Harlan Ellison’s novella.

In the House

Sit, please! And stay a while.


Rod Lott
Pay no mind to the bland prepositional phrase serving as the title for In the House; the film by celebrated French writer/director François Ozon is built with plenty of layers.

Grand Moff Tarkin does Grand Guignol.


Rod Lott
During my summer vacation, I read the new book Offbeat: British Cinema's Curiosities, Obscurities and Forgotten Gems. It's the kind of volume I have to keep paper and pen next to me while reading, because I come across a lot of titles I must see, however difficult and rare.

Samson & Delilah

Down and out in Down Under.


Rod Lott
Samson & Delilah portrays a community so minute, so insular and so far removed from ours, it may as well be science fiction. Neither a documentary nor a remake of Cecil B. DeMille’s 1949 biblical epic, this Cannes Film Festival honoree depicts the dull, dreary life among dwellers of the Central Australian desert.
