Rolling Stone (7/14/94, p.110) - 3.5 Stars - "...Amid an altogether first-rate record that's both raw and disciplined...those more direct songs strip away the catalog of eccentricities and circle behind the enigma to reveal the man, David Byrne..."Spin (9/94, p.141) - Highly Recommended - "...No longer practicing cross-cultural cryogenics, Byrne simply dashes DAVID BYRNE with essence brought back from his musical travels..."Entertainment Weekly (5/27/94, p.88) - "...this fourth solo album since the [Talking] Heads' demise is his most stripped-down effort in ages....It's nice to hear a gimmick-free Byrne, but bear in mind that straightforward songs from this guy are still fairly twisted by any reasonable standard..." - Rating: B+Dirty Linen (12/94-1/95, p.69) - "...The former Talking Head is in fine form, sounding unusually desperate in his appealingly vulnerable way, imparting mega poetry (sometimes in a slithery sing-speak) that from other mouths would most certainly sound affected..."Option (10/94, p.96) - "...this album gives a whole new musical framework to his persona. Lyrical themes are still skewed; a poetic look at an alternate universe in which love is never what it seems..."0.1437657

"Moreau is bewitching -- she simply breathes her role, without a hint of vanity." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly "[The film's] energies are devoted, for the most part, not to dissecting childhood traumas or recirculating stale cultural gossip, but rather to examining the alchemy by which perception is transformed into vision."New York Times "What makes SERAPHINE, directed and co-written by Martin Provost, so exceptional is that it neither condescends to nor romanticizes its subject....Powered by a performance of a lifetime by Belgium-born actress Moreau, it allows us to meet this singular person on her own terms."Los Angeles Times "[The film] benefits greatly from Moreau's powerfully complex lead performance. The actress beautifully manages the difficult feats of illuminating the darker reaches of her character's mind..."Hollywood Reporter 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Its honesty and purity derive not primarily from any correspondence to the facts of her life or essence of her creativity but from the aesthetic integrity and formal unity of the movie itself."Box Office "Seraphine Louis was a renowned primitivist painter....Provost and Moreau emphasize their subject's earthiness..."A.V. Club 4 stars out of 4 -- "SERAPHINE arrives from France as the year's most honored film....Moreau plays Seraphine as a straight-ahead charger, a little stooped, marching always with energy, plunging into work, not saying much, shy, but very much who she is."Chicago Sun-Times "[T]o look at the almost religious ecstasy on Moreau's face is to feel the artist's passion and be inspired by it."Washington Post Included in Chicago Sun-Times's "The Best Foreign Films Of 2009" -- "SERAPHINE is built upon one of the year's most acclaimed performances, by Yolande Moreau."Chicago Sun-Times0.1198047

Rolling Stone (p.70) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "With its skewed pop melodies, home-brewed sonic trickery and blazing fingerpicking, UNDER THE SKIN is a mesmerizing return to the side of Buckingham that birthed the proto-indie-pop strangeness of 1979's TUSK."Rolling Stone (p.108) - Ranked #42 in Rolling Stone's "The Top 50 Albums Of 2006" -- "[T]he eccentricity of SKIN suits Buckingham's reflections on his past life and current blessings."Entertainment Weekly (p.70) - "His fingerpicking is impossibly frantic in its nervous virtuosity, and each near-whisper is miked to sound like a scream. It's the spartan-yet-gonzo sound of a guy remembering he can go his own way." -- Grade: B+No Depression (p.100) - "His relentless fingerpicking is powerful on 'Not Too Late' and 'Shut Us Down'; his vocal overdubbing is inspired on 'Show You How' and 'Cast Away Dreams'."(p.133) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "A proper solo affair featuring Buckingham's breathy vocals, acoustic guitar and little else, UNDER THE SKIN knits accessible Buckingham together with his more daring side."Mojo (Publisher) (p.118) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "It is in essence a modern folk record, its minimalist beauty reminiscent of Nick Drake or John Martyn..."0.1099318

OCTAGON brings visions of humor, filth and most of the ill aspects that one conjures up while on acid....a quality album with the proper ingredients....you must keep your mind and ears on point at all times..."Melody Maker (5/25/96, p.50) - Bloody Essential - "...While commercial American hip hop is slithering into an insipid mire of soulless, identikit swingbeat, Dr. Octagon has made an album swathed in character....Get yer prescription fixed."Rap Pages (3/96, p.34) - 8 (out of 10) - "...Dr. Octagon...dares to venture where no man has gone before, and manages to get into that universe all real men love to go into....Then there's scratching..."New York Times (Publisher) (7/16/96, p.C13) - "...definitely among the most progressive rap projects to be released in the past year....DR. OCTAGON sounds at first like an American answer to the trip-hop musician Tricky....But DR. OCTAGON actually exists in an orbit of its own..."NME (Magazine) (5/25/96, p.53) - 7 (out of 10) - "...`Nineteen strong doses of pure, undiluted hip-hop'...steeped in the kind of abstract atmospheres the finest Wax tracks boast....he rides the grooves with all the flow and assured attitude of the seasoned pro he is..."0.09584377

Total Film "[I]t's Yu's visual flourishes that enable the movie to take flight....With a rich palette of period detail, taking in colourful townscapes and lush rural vignettes."

"Hoffman's portrayal of the petite yet outsize Truman Capote...is impeccable -- it's bound for awards..."Entertainment Weekly "[A] fascinating and fine-grained reconstruction....Not only does Mr. Hoffman achieve an impressive physical and vocal transformation...but he also conveys, with clarity and subtlety, the complexities of Capote's temperament."New York Times 5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he movie steers its own delicate course through the ethical minefields of 'faction' with consummate skill....It's Hoffman's film -- a tour de force..."Uncut "Hoffman's unmissable and unforgettable performance as Truman Capote should make him the frontrunner for every Best Actor prize in the book."Rolling Stone "[I]t's a stark, complex and ultimately stunning examination of a man who exploited others for professional gain and the emotional price he paid."Movieline's Hollywood Life 4 stars out of 5 -- "Beautifully shot and flawlessly acted; this captures the essence of the iconic novel and also brings a lingering poignancy to a portrait of a man as troubled and haunted as the novel's subjects."Ultimate DVD "[R]apt, absorbing and thrillingly perceptive....CAPOTE honors its subject by doing just what Truman Capote did. It teases, fascinates, and haunts." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly "The complexity of a gifted author, as well as his self-aggrandizing nature, are what the film focuses on.
