    Speaking Parts

    ★★★★

    Lives spent staring into camera lenses and TV screens. Glass and cathode visions as separations from truth, substitutions for intimacy. Realities just adjacent to our own. Was Egoyan clairvoyant or were we, even 1989, already lost in the airwaves?

  • House of Darkness

    House of Darkness

    ★★★½

    Credit to Kevin Smith, maybe, for realizing that Justin Long—doofy, endearingly hatable (or hatably endearing)—makes the perfect target for terrorization. Credit to Neil LaBute for his talky, topical (and tight at 88 minutes) recontextualization of The Three Weird Sisters.
