    The Great Cash-In

    Walk the Line (Fox) No matter what a junkie does with his spare time -- say, redefine country music, or forge one of history's most enduring personas -- movies about junkies are a drag to watch. So it's too bad this Johnny Cash biopic is a by-the-...

    Water Sports - MCA director Cydney Payton gathers seaside views in a beautiful group show.

    Cydney Payton, director of Denver's Museum of Contemporary Art, is very adept at keeping all the balls in the air. I really don't know how she does it without going stark raving mad, but I admire her for it. With only a skeleton staff at the museum, ...

    Being and Nothingness - A Delicate Balance holds its own at Germinal.

    The setting is the living room of Tobias and Agnes, a wealthy East Coast couple, and the play is a twisted descendent of the classic drawing-room comedy, complete with elegant furniture and a much-frequented drinks table. There's even a properly rebe...

    Murder, She Wrote - The Smell of the Kill is a word to the wives.

    There's not much depth to The Smell of the Kill, but it's wonderfully malicious and a lot funnier than any of the sketch comedy I've seen lately. Nicky, Molly and Debra are thrown together once a month by their husbands' friendship; on this parti...

    All the President's Men

    All the President's Men (Warner Bros.) It's no mystery why Warner Bros. chose to rerelease All the President's Men now; at last we know how much -- which is to say how little -- Mark "Deep Throat" Felt really looked like Hal Holbrook. A new doc on...

    Law and Disorder - Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is guilty of being bizarre fun.

    Sony's approach with its handheld, the PlayStation Portable, is to carbon-copy its most popular titles for on-the-go gaming. "Enjoy Grand Theft Auto on PlayStation 2?" Sony seems to ask. "Well, here's a version for the PSP. Oh, you're a SOCOM fan? Su...

    Torino It Off - This horrible Winter Olympics game doesn't even medal.

    Ah, the Winter Olympics. The nip of drama in the Alpine air. The purity of amateur competition. Swedish women in full-body spandex. These are all things we enjoy about the winter games. Now for some things we don't: losing to Canada in hockey, male...
