    Her One Little Secret

    Sleeping Dogs Lie (First Look) Writer-director Bobcat Goldthwait takes a subversive concept (honesty is overrated) and marries it to an outrageous scenario (a woman's family learns that she once, uh, performed for a dog) to create . . . a romanti...

    Stinging Sensation - Artist Gwyneth Scally swims with the jellyfish

    After nine years in the desert, the feel of the cool ocean water lapping at my toes is a faded childhood memory. Growing up on Long Island, I spent summers along the sandy shores, picking up purple-streaked shells and poking at the runny carcasses of...

    Walking on Water - Jelly side up

    Painter Gwyneth Scally, 33, is accustomed to walking in two worlds. She has degrees in English literature and studio art. Shes a self-professed atheist who went to Catholic school. And she lives in the barren desert, despite her love of the sea. Rai...

    My Name Is Mud - Like its muck-puddles, MotorStorm is a shallow mess

    In the poem "In Just-," e.e. cummings described the world as "mud-luscious" and "puddle-wonderful" -- words so perfectly befitting MotorStorm's gorgeously sloppy off-road hijinks, the game's designers probably had them tacked up on a wall somewhere. ...

    Tomorrow's Misery Today

    Children of Men (Universal) Set in a tomorrow that looks like yesterday, Alfonso Cuarn's wrenching adaptation of P.D. James' novel feels more like documentary than fiction. In the movie's world, women have gone barren, and immigrants are tossed i...

    Working Classy - A well-maid play

    On paper, Richard Dresser's Augusta sounds a whole lot more dreary than it turns out to be. Thanks to some fine acting and smooth direction, this comedy about the travails of the lower-income working class not only entertains, but reveals subtleties ...

    Christ Complex - The Son's a control freak, too

    I suppose it could happen to anyone: You spend a good chunk of your professional life getting paid to pretend you're Christ, and after awhile you start believing you can part the Red Sea. At least that's what I'm hoping is behind the Christ complex i...

    Hell on Wheels - Ghost Rider will drive you up the wall

    There's one similarity between Ghost Rider and most videogame movie tie-ins: Get too close to either, and your ass will probably get burnt. Though it stars goofy Nic Cage and Sam Elliott sound-alikes, Ghost Rider claims only to be an offshoot of t...

    Diamonds in the Rough

    Blood Diamond (Warner Bros.) Ed Zwick's Blood Diamond, about the civil war over diamonds that devastated Sierra Leone in the late 1990s, plays like a guilt-ridden Jerry Bruckheimer movie. It's little more than action-adventure pulp drenched in som...

    Emerald City - Wallow in your shamrock holiday

    Green Day is coming, and we ain't talking about the punk band, brah. Nope, it's the annual alcoholic extravaganza known as St. Patrick's Day, where liquor and leprechauns collide in one clamorous Celtic craic. Everyone can have a wee bit of Irish in ...

    Closer to Perfect - We'd love it even more if we could hear it
