Richard Linklater's drama about a young boy growing into manhood is also a film about the fleeting nature of existence.
I haven't been able to post as much as I'd like recently (and I've got some real juicy Opening Shots waiting) because I've been so busy doing reviews for the Chicago Sun-Times and RogerEbert.com, to help pick up some of the slack while Roger is resting and recovering. (See message from Chaz here -- kind of a teaser trailer for Roger's own progress reports!) This week I've got reviews of Woody Allen's "Scoop" and Betty Thomas's "John Tucker Must Die." You'll never guess which one I thought was funnier. I've already written three more for next week: "Little Miss Sunshine," "The Night Listener" and "The Descent." More about that last one, especially, in the next few days...
A review of "Extant" and "Hemlock Grove."
