Off the Menu: The Last Days of Chasen’s (1997)

The real stars of Off the Menu are not the stars. They are the 'United Nations' of Chasen's staff, most of whom worked there for over 30 years.

Fat Man and Little Boy (1989)

The viewer is left feeling that the Manhattan Project would have been a fantastic topic for a miniseries, but is an awful one for a 120-minute studio flick.

Casa de los Babys (2003)

The movie, which focuses on a group of U.S. women arrived in an unidentified Latin American country to adopt children, is as much about cultural imperialism and racism as it is about women and babies.

Doggy Poo (2003)

Doggy Poo is the tale of a newborn mound of mutt mush that questions its place in the cosmic pecking order.

Day of the Dead (1985)

The 'domesticated' zombie Bud has learned to appreciate the most important elements of modern culture: classical music, Stephen King novels, and handguns.
