Summer of Sam (1999)

It was a hot time in the city. The days sweltered and the nights vibrated with the latest craze, disco. In the Bronx in 1977, the Yankees were headed for a pennant, a Con Ed blackout inspired looting, assaulting, and arresting, and the .44 killer was shooting young dark-haired women and their dates as they necked in their parked cars.


Just One Time (1999)

Janger and co-writer Jennifer Vandever's screenplay ultimately compromises its sexual politics in order to make the film both gay- and straight-friendly. And yet, 'Just One Time' still has an underlying appeal due to its terrific ensemble cast and Janger's talent as a director, able to handle the film's occasional shifts in tone, between the more serious moments shared by Amy and Anthony, and the lighter touches of comedy, such as the guys' excursion to the gay bar.
