Movie Review: Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work

In the previous millennium, when I was an idealistic young thing attending Barnard College, the women’s college affiliated with Columbia University, there was a lot of talk about who before us had walked the hallowed halls: anthropologist Margaret Mead, writers Edna St. Vincent Millay, Zora Neale Thurston, Francine du Plessix Gray, Patricia Highsmith and...

Movie Review: Best Worst Movie

I finally got to view the documentary Best Worst Movie.  Most film types had an opportunity to see it at various festivals last year, and now the movie is showing in limited engagements across the nation. If it comes to your town, see it, immediately. Best Worst Movie is funny, poignant, awkward, endearing, and...

The Films of John Huston: The Battle of San Pietro, Let There Be Light

The Films of John Huston: The Battle of San Pietro, Let There Be Light

Okay, finishing up the documentaries this week with two stellar, if unnerving, entries: 1945’s The Battle of San Pietro and 1946’s Let There Be Light. I mentioned last week that Report from the Aleutians came under some scrutiny from the Army, but these two were lucky to have seen the light of day (pun...

Movie Review: Exit Through the Gift Shop

Movie Review: Exit Through the Gift Shop

It is said that art is eternal, but street art is by nature ephemeral, effaced immediately or soon thereafter by law enforcement, building managers, rival taggers and forces of nature. What longevity it is able to attain comes mostly via documentation by photographers and videographers. And that is where Thierry Guetta—a portly, middle-aged Frenchman...

SXSW Review: ‘World Peace…and Other 4th-grade achievements’

Chris Farina’s World Peace…and Other 4th Grade Achievements is one of the more fascinating documentaries you will ever see. Over the course of eight weeks, students in 4th-grade teacher John Hunter’s Charlottesville, Virginia class take on the roles of nation leaders, UN representatives, the World Bank, tribal chieftans who negotiate the trade rights to their...

Type Fast, Write Hard, and Leave a Good Looking Blog

Type Fast, Write Hard, and Leave a Good Looking Blog

Warning: Goodshit is not safe for work, kids, or judgmental people.  Seriously. GoodShit is Fred Lapides: postroad at hotmail.com.  Fred, as it turns out, isn’t your typical blogger.  He posted a story of mine on his website a few days ago, and the traffic jumped up considerably.  Naturally, I wrote to thank him, and...

SXSW (Nearly Complete) Review:  Rise, Ride, Roar

SXSW (Nearly Complete) Review:  Rise, Ride, Roar

Please allow me to preface this breezy, casual, semi-incomplete review of sorts by saying that I missed the last fifteen minutes of this film in order to catch a plane (I am incredibly antsy about catching flights… I blame my dad.)  I was the designated time watcher of the group (not an easy feat...

SXSW Review: ‘American: The Bill Hicks Story’

SXSW Review: ‘American: The Bill Hicks Story’

I’ve never heard of Bill Hicks before this movie. In fact, when I first heard about the film, I thought it was a fan mockumentary about Kevin Smith’s character Gil Hicks, the sorry sap from Mallrats whose idea of showing a girl a nice time opened with letting her shop at the places she...
