The Church Strikes Back, Humor and Terror Tango
No one expects the Italian Inquisition. Least of all Menocchio (Charles Dean), the title character of the Berkeley Repertory Theatre's new play.

A Moneymaking Film Formula Is No ‘Chamber of Secrets'
Something that I've always thought the movie industry has sorely lacked has been sweeping, epic children's movies.

One of the great thrills of cinephilia is the opportunity to take a fellow movie lover's hand and be swept into nostalgia mode: catching that long-forgotten innocence of ole-time movie fun, peering down the halls of Hollywood heaven, soaking the splendid Technicolor rays. Among the great modern directors is often where you find the deepest passion for those classical movie traditions.
