Still working to get my groove back, but things are getting more focused, batteries are charging. I am keeping track of every week missed, still, so hopefully there will be a flurry of activity this summer.

In the meantime, I did see a couple of movies this past month and I ended up writing about them...


Bernie, Richard Linklater reteams with Jack Black for a semi-successful comedic take on the true crime genre.

The Dictator, Sacha Baron Cohen's latest is big on laughs and small on story, but if you like his stuff, the giggles win.

Men in Black III. What does that make? At least two times too many? Josh Brolin is pretty great, though.

Snow White and the Huntsmen. No glib line here. I actually like a review I wrote for once. I tried something different. Please read it.

* I also covered Portland's sixth-annual Queer Documentary Film Festival with a round-up of the event for the Mercury. I am hoping Jobriath A.D. gets out there and is seen by many, many people.


Fat City, an excellent boxing drama from John Huston, starring Stacy Keach and Jeff Bridges.

Spin a Dark Web, a 1956 British crime thriller, short on thrills but tall on Britishness. The photography stands out more than anything else.
