Are you game?

‘Game Changer’ at BMoCA breaks some rules

By Elizabeth Miller

A basketball in the middle of the floor is a standing invitation — pick me up and give me a toss, it says. Some did. Then they turned toward the basket, took one look and realized that a single shot could shatter the hoop and backboard, formed by a circular fluorescent blue lightbulb and a vintage mirror.

Mean streets and dark nights

‘Double Indemnity’ and the existential abyss of film noir

By Michael J. Casey

Film noir gained popularity in the early 1940s, just as America entered the war and the moviegoing public was looking for something darker to sink their teeth into. Lucky for them, Hollywood recently gained an influx of European émigrés fleeing the Nazi Party.

Reel To Reel

A 40-year-old father’s life is complicated when the mother of his two children moves to New York. Since he can’t bear them growing up far away from him, he decides to move there as well, and also fathers a child for his lesbian friends, marries a Chinese woman for a green card and falls back in love with an old flame.

‘Korengal’ returns to the Valley of Death

By Michael J. Casey

And come they do. The soldiers of Restrepo take fire every single day of the year. Forty-two American servicemen, as well as many Afghan soldiers, have died in that valley, earning it the nickname “The Valley of Death.” Fittingly, the base Restrepo was named after one of the fallen, Juan Restrepo.

Revisiting ‘The Lost World’

By Michael J. Casey

There once was a time in the not-too-distant cinematic past where the world was still largely undiscovered and areas of the planet were a mystery to modern man. What beasts lived on these islands? What creatures were in these jungles? What was out there, lurking in the shadows? This theme cropped up again last month when Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla.

‘Snowpiercer’ is a glimpse into an odd future

By Ryan Syrek

In quite possibly the most literal scifi metaphor ever, the rich live lives of luxury at the front of the train. The poor are bound to the back, where they are crammed in tight quarters, eating “protein bars” made of stuff that makes hot dog ingredients sound delicious.

Only fans of choice will choose ‘Obvious Child’

By Ryan Syrek

Donna is a woman without artifice, comfortable telling rooms full of strangers about her flatulence. When her boyfriend, Ryan (Paul Briganti), dumps her, Donna goes on a bender that includes the most uncomfortable stand-up routine not performed by a former Seinfeld.

‘The Signal’ is icky good

By Ryan Syrek

For a movie reviewer, having a favorite genre kinda feels like a parent having a favorite child; oh, they totally do, they’re just not supposed to talk about it. Well, just like your mom told your sister when you were out of earshot, if all other genres were out of the room, I’d totally tell indie sci-fi that it’s my favorite.

Miners Alley goes old school with Simon’s ‘Odd Couple’

By Gary Zeidner

Given the myriad ways in which other directors have put their stamp on this ageless tale — from turning Felix and Oscar into women to utilizing the Kabuki form — director Robert Kramer’s decision to stage this Miners Alley Playhouse production in the play’s original 1965 New York City setting is inspired and heightens both the many similarities and striking juxtapositions between then and now.

Feline behavioral expert and trainer Samantha Martin puts on a live show of trained cats (all orphans or rescues) walking tight-ropes, riding skateboards, traversing an agility course and performing in a “cat band,” all while being adorable.

Now in its 57th season, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival is enjoying a wellearned renaissance.

‘I Hate Hamlet’ is an inside joke, inside a reference, wrapped in an annotation

By Josh Gross

There’s an unnamed but pervasive phenomenon widely known by literary agents, publishers and film and theater festival submissions agents that is best summarized as “early novel syndrome,” in which someone with a clear and focused talent for writing/acting/filmmaking turns their sights on the only story they yet know: the struggle to create whatever it is they’re trying to create.

‘The Tempest’ shows balance in delivering the best of the Bard

By Elizabeth Miller

That The Tempest weaves through murderous plots, attempted rape, enslavement, ill-fated lovers and split families — the territory of tragedies, to be sure, and escapes relatively unscathed as something closer to a comedy is a testament to the strength of Shakespeare as a writer. By some counts, this final work by the Bard is his best, a victory lap demonstrating his mastery in capturing the human character.
