    Hooked on Hookers

    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...

    Monkey Trials - Super Monkey Ball Adventure takes a wrong turn

    What could be more fun than monkeys trapped in plastic hamster balls? That's the strange philosophy of Super Monkey Ball, a puzzle series that debuted in 2001. Much as with Marble Madness, the goal here is to cross the finish line without falling o...

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

    Like Willy Loman, Classical Acting Company's Death of a Salesman aspires to greatness and comes up well short of expectations. Arthur Miller's 1949 drama is the heaving granddaddy of American tragedies. The play demands so much from its actors, desig...

    Grateful Dead - Dead Rising's zombies will eat your brain--and your free time

    The mall in Dead Rising is pretty much like any other you've visited. There's a bunch of women's clothing stores, a movie theater, and of course the obligatory food court. The only real difference is that it's teeming with enough zombies to fill a...

    Terror-bly funny - Pocket Sandwich Theatre stirs up a boo-ha-ha with It's a Scream!

    Without actress Trista Wyly, the new show at the Pocket Sandwich Theatre would be just another ho-hum, pleasant little trifle. High art isn't this venue's specialty. Here it's low-brow comedy and melodrama most of the year, with the audience invited ...

    Tuttle Unbound - Artist Richard Tuttle looses a torrent of idiosyncracy

    There is vomit art. There is garage-sale art. And there is the work of Richard Tuttle. Neither one nor the other, Tuttle's art doesn't so much split the difference down the middle as it ignores the two extremes altogether. It is subtler than the wink...
