Director: Yasuaki Nakajima. With Yasuaki Nakajima, Jacqueline Bowman, Moises Morales. (72 min.)
Sterritt ** A handful of survivors fight one another for survival after a third world war. Dark, eccentric, silly.
Director: Ron Rice. With Taylor Mead, Linda Evanoff, Eric Nord, Ella Henry. (70 min.)
Sterritt **** A giant of "underground" film made this 1960 tragicomedy about a man on the fringes of American society. Mead's acting has been compared with that of Buster Keaton and Charles Chaplin, and that's not as large a stretch as it sounds.
Director: Tim Fywell. With Michelle Trachtenberg, Joan Cusack, Kim Cattrall, Trevor Blumas. (98 min.)
Sterritt *** Should our high-school heroine stick with physics, which everyone says is her calling, or become a figure skater, which entices her when she tries to work out its aerodynamics in scientific terms? Trite but nice, this enjoyable comedy-drama has good-spirited warmth toward almost all its characters, from the domineering moms to the daughters beginning to find themselves. And it's great to see so many smart girls in a Hollywood movie!
Director: Woody Allen. With Radha Mitchell, Will Ferrell, Chloë Sevigny, Wallace Shawn. (100 min.)
Sterritt *** See review, at right.
Director: Joe Maggio. With Clint Jordan, Kirstin Russell, Eleanor Hutchins, Dudley Findlay Jr. (91 min.)
