    In the Heat of the Night

    ★★★★½

    Ace directing and a compelling story. Way ahead of its time. A quiet movie that sizzles and burns with emotion and social urgency just under the surface.

    35mm at the Vista theater in LA. Brought me back to watching movies with my mother as a kid, quoting Steve Martin endlessly during the car rental sequence (my first major introduction of the many uses of the F word) and rolling with laughter at all the hijinks. Despite the farce, John Candy remains human and vulnerable and this film makes me feel good all over. Gobble gobble!

    ★★★★

    Belongs in a trilogy with Benny's Video and Afterschool. Haunting, absorbing work from an exciting independent American filmmaker.

    Green Room

    A film about nothing exploiting screen violence for entertainment and shock value. A clumsy script that thinks very highly of itself. A sack of shit.
