    The Runaways

    Not Girl Scouts

    "You dogs would be lucky to get a gig singing in the shower. Go sell girl scout cookies." Manager Kim Fowley


    The last half of the '70's was a time of growth for me, away from rock 'n roll and toward family and profession. For the Runaways, the first all-girl arena-filling rock band, it was a time of the sex, drugs, and . . . well, you know the clich? already.

    Terribly Happy

    Terribly good noir

    Terribly Happy is a terribly good Danish Oscar submission, remade by the original director, Henrik Ruben Genz, honoring the noir tradition with an off-center hero cop, a small town full of figurative dirt easily hidden by its voracious bog, a blonde femme fatale in the Hitchcock tradition, and a low-key cinematography that captures the desolate, anarchic lowland of South Jute.
