A Beachwood Halloween

Some very scary options for Halloween this year.

Pure Carnage, All Night Long

By Scott Gordon
Re-create the Music Box Massacre in the confines of your own home this weekend. You won't be sorry.

Filming at the Edge of the World

By Marilyn Ferdinand
The Chicago International Film Festival seemed like a festival in flux this year, but it's still an underappreciated treasure, and an especially gratifying one when foreign-born residents of the city come out to see a movie in their native language.

Guest Stars

By Marilyn Ferdinand
Meeting the creators behind such works as Night of the Living Dorks and Learning to Swallow may be the best thing about attending film festivals, and even the most modest fans of the cinema should avail themselves of the chance to do so.

Barista! Back in the Grind

By Maude Perkins
I explained that anytime you put something in your mouth - or even get in your car to drive to the local coffee shop - you are putting your life at risk. And I warned him not to sue. Problem solved.

Love and the Dirty Old Man

By Marilyn Ferdinand
Peter O'Toole plays a character very close to himself, an elderly actor of renown, who takes one more shot at love with a barely legal girl.

The Chicago Way

By Marilyn Ferdinand
The original 1927 film version of Chicago is available only to scholars through a UCLA archive; but Chicago festival-goers got a rare treat to see a restored print.

And the Hugo Goes To . . .

By Marilyn Ferdinand
Once again, Ferdy didn't guess right on the Chicago International Film Festival's Gold Hugo Award Winners.

The Elusive Quality of Truthiness

By Marilyn Ferdinand
The Balkan 12:08 East of Bucharest is clearly the superior film about truthiness amid today's triad. The Italian filmmaking slump, meanwhile, continues.

Boot Straps and Black Boys

By Marilyn Ferdinand
Shoot the Messenger opens with a black man saying in an angry and anguished tone, "Everything bad that has happened in my life has happened because of black people."

Barista! Our Ennobling Mission

By Maude Perkins
I don't know what utopian coffee village employs our trainer, but my observation to the class was that not everyone wants to have their day enriched by a chipper barista; especially not the pre-caffeinated majority that is our customer base.

Deep in the Heart of Dixie

By Marilyn Ferdinand
The Dixie Chicks show us that some all-American girls from the South are liberal and can distrust and dislike the government. This is educational for both the super-patriots from country music's stronghold states and liberals in other parts of the country who look at the South as the land of rednecks.

Cab #5884

The driver seemed a risk-averse sort until he tried to deliver me to an El train already waiting at its station. Then we had a little fun.

Barista! Tales From the Coffee Front

By Maude Perkins
The pastry case looked a little weak, my manager said. Maybe we ought to do something about it. We meant me.

Posted on October 9, 2006

A Talent for Torment

By Marilyn Ferdinand
It sucks to be young. In three parts.

Posted on October 9, 2006

Soul In Flames

By Marilyn Ferdinand
In Requiem, an extraordinary movie about the real-life exorcism of a German girl, a director asks his presumably skeptical audience to suspend judgement. It works.

Posted on October 8, 2006

Corruption and Comedy

By Marilyn Ferdinand
Greedy, stupid, condescending men are lining their pockets with taxpayer money in countries all over the world. The Piranha is out to stop them.

Posted on October 7, 2006

Better Than Fiction

By Marilyn Ferdinand
Dustin Hoffman is deserving of honor, but unfortunately his latest work will open as the new Will Ferrell movie.

Posted on October 5, 2006

Life at Work

By J. Bird
Remember the Clinton years when you could lose your job and have a new one five minutes later? Sigh.

Posted on October 5, 2006

Starbucks City

By The Beachwood Coffee Affairs Desk
Starbucks announced plans to build 250 more Starbucks' in Chicago. We figured out where.
