    movie review: Project Nim

    If movies about talking cars or warlike robots don’t interest you, Project Nim is the latest documentary (following Buck) to offer a satisfying, adult alternative. It tells a story that is both stranger and more thought-provoking than most Hollywood fare.

    dvd review: Back To The 1950s

    When I was growing up in the 1950s and 60s, the last thing I wanted to see was a “serious” movie. I eagerly awaited each new Jerry Lewis comedy and Walt Disney release, and when the newly-reconstituted Three Stooges started making feature films I was first in line to see them. I ...

    REVIEW | Planet of the Ape: James Marsh's "Project Nim"

    Although it promises to be the story of a communicative chimp, James Marsh's documentary "Project Nim" focuses on the human desire to speak with animals, rather than vice versa.
