WONDER WOMAN: THE JENNIFER WENGER INTERVIEW

Wenger is a natural talent who isn’t afraid to take chances. When I first watched “Confessions of a Superhero,” I thought she would be the one who goes all the way and would actually be able to have a career in the belly of the Hollywood monster…

FLOW

5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 84 minutes

If this documentary doesn’t cause you to rethink what you believe about water, you aren’t watching closely enough. You use it every day and you barely notice it, but there are people paying very close attention to those two facts and they do notice water usage, and what is happening under our noses because of them is the stuff out of nightmares…

WE ALL FALL DOWN

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2000

This is not exactly a happy movie, but its overall message is one of hope in the most barren of places…

STAAR: SHE’D RATHER BE A MISTRESS

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2007
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 52 minutes

For a mockumentary to work it has to be believable on some level. If the filmmakers were going for that here, they failed…

STRICTLY SEXUAL (A LOVE STORY)

3.5 Stars

If you avoid romantic comedies like you would a spastic proctologist, let this be the exception to the rule.

SHUTDOWN: THE RISE AND FALL OF “DIRECT ACTION TO STOP THE WAR”

3.5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 45 minutes

If civil disobedience, anti-war movements and direct action are things you are interested in, this is probably one the best documentaries to come out in a long time.

POISON SWEETHEARTS

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 70 minutes

There’s something about the spirit of this modern-day exploitation flick that tells me Quentin Tarantino would probably like it.

PLANET B-BOY (DVD)

4.5 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated

INSIDE DARKNESS

2 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 37 minutes

Ridiculous, basic, pretentious – just a few of the words that come to mind when viewing the short “Inside Darkness.”

PAURA: LUCIO FULCI REMEMBERED VOL. 1 (DVD)

4 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 127 minutes

This DVD has little value to anyone who isn’t familiar with the man’s many films. This isn’t a slam against it.

PAROLES ET MUSIQUE (LOVE SONGS) (DVD)

1 Stars
Year Released: 1984
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 107 minutes

Fans of Lambert and his role of Highlander are going to be a bit surprised by this film. Fans of Deneuve, who always seemed a bit overrated, will not be.

THE BEEKEEPER’S HONEY: INTERVIEW WITH MICHELLE MUELLER

After watching “The Beekeeper” I knew one thing: I had to know more about Michelle Mueller and what made her able to handle this character in a way that bordered on sublime.

EAST L.A. MARINE (DVD)

3 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 75 minutes

Tom Brokaw called the WWII veterans the “greatest generation.” Guy Gabaldon, a short Hispanic enamored with Japanese culture, would probably be ranked by Brokaw right at the top of that group.

GLENN BECK: UNELECTABLE

2 Stars
Year Released: 2008
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 105 minutes

Any rational person would read the title of this pro-Beck DVD release and think, “Thank God.”
