Termite Art in The Village Voice: Vol. LI, No. 3

R. Emmet Sweeney on 24 Hours on Craigslist

"Personalities motor the film, whether it's the sardonic Vietnam vet searching for a 270 lb. woman or the Ethel Merman impersonator seeking a bass player for his classic rock band."

Matt Singer on Glory Road

"...the team's accomplishments are here diluted into fodder for another of the producer's feel-good man-weepies."

Singer on Last Holiday

"How in the hell did the new Queen Latifah movie, a tired-looking remake of an Alec Guinness chestnut, become the story of a working-class African American woman— from New Orleans!—taking revenge on Washington insiders who cater to special-interest groups while ignoring the poor?"

Pete L'Official on Tristan & Isolde

"I dub thee tolerable."
