Last Night Stand
Unfortunately, "Armageddon" isn't about the end of the world, it's about saving the world, which is pretty much what every other sci-fi disaster flick is about. Thank goodness for all those explosions. [07-13-98]
— Stacey Richter, TUCSON WEEKLY

Coming Soon
Rating this summer's many trailers. [06-22-98]
— Stacey Richter, TUCSON WEEKLY

Carrey'd Away
"The Truman Show" exploits and subverts so many Hollywood conventions that it seems to be one of those rare movies that manages to be both thought-provoking and entertaining. [06-15-98]
— Stacey Richter, TUCSON WEEKLY

"Almost" Isn't Good Enough
"Almost Heroes" is extraordinarily bad. It's clear that some sort of catastrophe marred the production of this film. [06-08-98]
— Stacey Richter, TUCSON WEEKLY

Recreational Habit
What we have here is a sort of love poem to getting wasted. [06-01-98]
— Stacey Richter, TUCSON WEEKLY

"The Spanish Prisoner," the latest film written and directed by David Mamet, puts his idiosyncratic style to good use. [05-11-98]
— Stacey Richter, TUCSON WEEKLY

— Stacey Richter, TUCSON WEEKLY

No Whitewash
"Primary Colors" captures the sleaze and shades of gray in American politics. [03-30-98]

Hop 'N' Go
Riding the rails during the Great Depression was dangerous; the trains themselves, the railroad detectives, and other vagrants were all potential threats. But that didn't stop these kids. [03-02-98]
— Stacey Richter, TUCSON WEEKLY

Watership Clowns
The imagery is obvious, and the psychology is beyond pop, but "Sphere" is so earnest and goofy that it has a kind of camp appeal. [02-23-98]
— Stacey Richter, TUCSON WEEKLY

Catching 22
"Zero Effect" is a gentle parody of noir detective movies and their devices. It floats on the basis of its dialogue, which is goofy rather than witty, and on the performances of its principal actors. [02-16-98]

— Stacey Richter, TUCSON WEEKLY

Show Quality
Director Barry Levinson can't decide if his audience is smart enough to get good, strong political satire. So he waters down his latest film, "Wag the Dog." [01-20-98]
— Stacey Richter, TUCSON WEEKLY

Magic Geriatrics
According to a recent spate of Hollywood romances, women in their thirties fall for men in their sixties - yeah, old enough to be their fathers - with the casual regularity of scheduling a haircut. [01-12-98]
