A Soldier's Daughter Never Cries 1998
A (dysfunctional) family living in France eventually moves back to the states, just as the daughter and adopted son enter the high school years.
Some good acting and a dark, if somewhat predictable, coming-of-age story.
One Night at McCool’s 2001
Andrew Dice Clay
Surprisingly intelligent comedy about a femme fatal who manipulates the lives of all the men who come in contact with her. I recommend it.
New York Doll 2005
Documentary about Arthur "Killer" Kane, bass player for the New York Dolls, recovering alcoholic and recent Mormon convert.
Pleasant surprise of a documentary. Poor Arthur. Not much of a Killer Kane, when we met him. Very nice man with a lot of resentment not well hidden. David Johansen looks and acts like the New York Doll he is/was. Still got that "coolness" but Arthur never succumbed to it.
And after finally re-capturing his former glory, he dies of leukemia.
