    Sid & Nancy


    A charming love story about a couple of happy, healthy kids with a bright future.

    It's Alive

    Schlock master Larry Cohen’s bizarre 1974 mutant baby horror film ended up making multiple millions and got two sequels and a remake. It’s an oddly affecting piece of ridiculousness, with strong performances and gloomy atmosphere in spite of centering on a homicidal newborn leading dozens and dozens of cops on a merry chase all over Los Angeles. How? Such questions, as usual, are of no interest whatsoever to Cohen or any of the characters, which is refreshingly hilarious.

    Manufacturing Dissent

    A movie by pussies for pussies.

    By which I mean, anyone who watches Michael Moore's films and is SHOCKED to discover that

    1. he's an angry polemicist, not a journalist
    2. his filmmaking is sometimes unfair to its subjects
    3. he has manipulated facts in pursuit of a larger truth
    4. he has a bigger ego than his slob persona suggests
    5. his films have made him rich
    6. he is, in some ways, a morally compromised human being
