    THE FANTASTICKS:


    GREGORY HORROR SHOW: THE NIGHTMARE BEGINS... (VOLUME 1) (reviewed by
    Neal Solon, overall score 56/100):
    "Gregory Horror Show- The Nightmare Begins... tries to present itself as
    a show about choices; about the perils of escapism. It is about how our
    choices define and affect our reality, and having seen the show once, I
    cannot imagine choosing to spend another hour of my life on it."

    GREGORY HORROR SHOW: THE GUEST FROM HELL (VOLUME 2) (reviewed by Neal
    Solon, overall score 63/100):
    "While the court still holds that your money and time can certainly be
    put to better use elsewhere, if you happen to have an inexplicable
    desire to see what this show is all about, this volume is a better place
    to start than the first."

    HOW ARNOLD WON THE WEST (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall score 75/100):
    "Cooke gets lost in the hoopla and the histrionics, unable to provide
    the perspective or the passion that would make all this muckraking
    necessary. She was blessed with one hell of a story, but How Arnold Won
    the West mismanages a lot of the obvious anarchy committed by both sides
    to repeatedly let the pumped-up lunkhead hang himself."

    LANA'S RAIN (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 83/100):
    "I'm not unsympathetic toward Lana's hard slog down Chicago's mean
    streets, but the whole shebang didn't strike me as an authentic look at
    the day-to-day travails of immigrants. Or at least the legal immigrants.
    Because, seriously, are there a lot of forlorn Eastern European women
    out there who haplessly hitched their destiny to their one-eyed scumbag
    mobster brother?"

    LIGHTHOUSES OF NORTH AMERICA (reviewed by David Johnson, overall
    score 80/100):
    "Lighthouses of North America will scratch that itch for lighthouse
    lovers, but for folks who are uninterested, you'd probably rather retile
    your bathroom floor."

    LOVING GLANCES (reviewed by Jesse Ataide, overall score 79/100):
    "Before the charming little Serbian romantic comedy Loving Glances
    begins, a brief credit flashes across the screen dedicating the film to
    Rene Clair. The reference may be lost on some viewers, but it's a
    fitting tribute, as Loving Glances has much in common with the
    innovative French director's light comedy classics, such as Under the
    Roof of Paris"

    SPRIGGAN: SPECIAL EDITION (reviewed by Brett Cullum, overall
    score 89/100):
    "Spriggan plays out like an Indiana Jones movie or maybe a James Bond
    adventure, and never gets too convoluted or complicated. I see it as a
    great introduction to the genre if you haven't been an anime fan before,
    or an enjoyable entry in the form that emulates a typical action film."

    SUNDAY (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 80/100):
    "The budget for Sunday was almost nil, and this is reflected in the
    look of the film. There's an intentionally gritty, grainy visual
    scheme, which actually serves to help the storytelling, bringing a
    documentary feel to many scenes, especially those taking place in the
    homeless shelter."

    TRY TO REMEMBER: THE FANTASTICKS (reviewed by Amanda DeWees, overall
    score 83/100):
    "For the many devoted fans of this musical, this documentary should be a
    pleasantly nostalgic experience, a testament to the love the show
    inspired over its long life."
