Kylie Bax

First Lines: Gilbert Sorrentino - Imaginative Qualities of Actual Things


What if this young woman, who writes such bad poems, in competition with her husband, whose poems are equally bad, should stretch her remarkably long and well-made legs out before you, so that her skirt slips up to the tops of her stockings?

Daga Ziober

The Door in the Floor (2004)



A writer's young assistant becomes both pawn and catalyst in his boss's disintegrating household.

A marriage drama with some great performances, but a predictable plot.

Mayara Rubik Marchi

Pitch Black (2000)




A group of marooned space travelers struggle for survival on a seemingly lifeless sun-scorched world.

Above-average sci-fi thriller with some atmospheric visuals.
