Art house

Artists and musicians carve out elbow room wherever they can, from spare bedrooms and empty garages to posh studio spaces and art cooperatives.

‘Dirty’ job

You don't want to see the film that was set in Stillwater.


CFN

Gazette staff
Opening Friday in select cities (read: likely not ours) is the dramedy “Dirty Girl,” which we only mention because it’s set in Norman, and definitely not because it looks like there’s a scene in which the leading lady might be forced to strip for some quick cash.

Higher Ground

Can she get an 'Amen'?


Drama

Rod Lott
Many Christians’ condemnation of Hollywood is that Hollywood output often condemns Christianity. “Higher Ground,” the directorial debut of actress Vera Farmiga (“Source Code”), is not one of those movies.

Life, Above All

In ‘Life, Above All,’ the impact of AIDS is rarely stated, but often heard.


Drama

Phil Bacharach

AIDS is rarely mentioned in “Life, Above All.” It’s referred to obliquely — a “bug,” “the other thing” — but its grim presence is always felt. When a character finally does call it by name, late in the movie, the effect is startling.
