    Poetry and Puncture Wounds

    The Proposition (First Look) There's an old saying about Ginger Rogers, who did everything Fred Astaire did--but backwards and in heels. This Australian western seems to be saying something similar about gritty American westerns: You think that's ...

    I Am a Sex Addict (IFC) Caveh Zahedi has made a movie of our times -- a strange mix of self-absorption, shamelessness in the pursuit of fame, and sex. Most shocking of all is that it works. Part fiction and documentary, confessional and comedy, th...

    Willy and Wailin' - Classical Acting Company sells mixed messages in Death of a Salesman
