The first image is taken from a car driving around the city of Paris at the speed of light. "Killing Zoe" zooms from scene to scene and emotion to emotion throughout. The speed does not slow down for one minute during this wonderful ride.

I recently purchased a grilled cheese sandwich. All I wanted was some bread and cheese. Simple enough. After being handed the sandwich, I was on it like bats on a beehive hairdo. I wasn't expecting anything too fancy. No reason to call in Pasquale. However, they really went all out.
All right, here we are again, another year, another column. Not that I'm complaining, or anything. I like doing this sort of thing.

"Harvard on the Potomac" is no longer as new President Benjamin Ladner stepped into the AU public eye Wednesday at opening convocation. In his first major address to students, faculty and staff, Ladner saluted AU's past while speaking out against trying to imitate other universities.

The music of "The Crow" is so interwoven with the film that it is much more than the normal filler between dialogue. In an interview two-and-a-half years ago, Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits said he disliked soundtrack work because the music often became trapped by the sounds and circumstances of the film.
If you are someone who likes movies with a plot, character development, and continuity, "Barcelona" is not the movie for you. This new film written and directed by Whit Stillman, also the creator of the critically "disclaimed" "Metropolitan," is quite reminiscent of his past work ... unfortunately.
