    California, Here I Come: Baumbach's "Greenberg"

    There are those who claim that Punch-Drunk Love begs to be read as a deconstruction of Adam Sandler’s screen persona. While they might be right, it doesn't make Paul Thomas Anderson's dull slab of powder-blue whimsy any more bearable. So when I say that Noah Baumbach's latest film, Greenberg, feels like a culmination of sorts for its star, Ben Stiller, that's not in and of itself a ringing endorsement, although it’s certainly superior to the writer-director’s previous Margot at the Wedding.

    Dispatch from SXSW 2010—Three: Spiders From Mars

    Boasting two midnight movie–loving Alamo Drafthouse theaters as screening venues and having cultivated a relationship with Fantastic Fest, SXSW has always displayed a strong lineup of genre films. This year’s program leaned even more heavily towards science fiction, in general, and films dealing with space travel and alien life, in particular.
