If the Harvard Exit hadn't closed, I'll bet Marron could have stuck around a while longer. I haven't hade a recent to venture above the QFC on Broadway for two years.

Except Kathy Fennessy *did* write about Mustang http://www.thestranger.com/film/feature/…

And several people wrote about Star Wars, including Charles.

I'm already seeing this posted all over Twitter by people who've never actually seen one of The Stranger's "New Column!" features before. Congratulations!
Actually it looks like commenter #1 may also never have read "New Column!" before.

I felt like I'd seen this movie before. Maybe Mazursky did a variation on it?

A thing about the movie that always made me laugh: the way the salesmen would back up any statement the other made with a "ya" or "nej." Like audible punctuation.
Jun 15, 2015 ratzkywatzky commented on Angst: Serial Killers Are So Uninteresting.
Charles is absolutely right about the music and the cinematography, but the *most* interesting thing about the movie is that the killer is "uninteresting, predictable, and limited." The problem with *all* serial killer movies are that the killers are meant to be interesting and resourceful, when there are really very few who are anything more than impulsive bunglers. No one will want to watch this movie for a thrill. I think it's the best serial killer movie ever made.

"one last look at that crazy Die Dritte Generation poster before the doors get chained shut."
I love that poster, too, but it would've been nice if The Stranger had gone to a writer who's actually attending SIFF to write the SIFF overviews. The posters have been gone from the walls of the Exit since before it shuttered as a theater the first time.
May 18, 2015 ratzkywatzky commented on SIFF 2015 Weekend in Review: There's More to Australia Than Mad Max.
Oh, no! Sounds like it's going to open *and* close during SIFF, just like Dead Man, 20 years ago (which I also skipped at SIFF because it was opening soon.)

I'll bet that house smelled really bad.

I'd want to know if a reviewer laughed at a comedy, and I'd want to know if a reviewer had creepy feelings that stuck around after a horror movie. That's absolutely pertinent to a review.
