  • Burns handles the more dramatic moments - divorce, accidental death, betrayal - with invention, using abrupt cuts and impressionistic editing to keep the film from settling into a rut. show more

  • Skateland is every coming-of-age-after-high-school movie you've ever seen with a formulaic plot and well-worn characters. show more

  • Less than compelling as drama -- but boy is this an impressive collection of wildly ugly hairstyles, moustaches, clothing and "earth tone" furniture from 1983. show more
