Review/Film; Reflections and Envy in Good Twin, Bad Twin
NYTimes - over 23 years
In the moody, stylized films of Alan Rudolph, the world is an urban lonely-hearts club whose members drift through the city numb with longing. Even when fate delivers them to their ideal lovers, the odds are strong that the connection will be missed and that happily ever after will end up lonely ever after. So it goes in Mr. Rudolph's new film,

FROM time to time throughout "Poetic Justice," John Singleton's new romantic melodrama, a pretty, button-nosed South-Central Los Angeles beautician named Justice, played by the pop superstar Janet Jackson, muses about life and loneliness on the soundtrack.

FILM VIEW; What Gives 'White Men' Its Spring?
NYTimes - almost 25 years
Forget about "Hook." The true story of "Peter Pan: The Later Years" is "White Men Can't Jump," the hit film about two guys who leap through the air and don't wanna grow up. The Wendys who love them tell these overgrown boys to settle down and get jobs, as any self-respecting mother figure would. Depicting heroes who are pop-culture Peter Pans is a

Review/Film; Spike Lee's Comedy of Sorrow
NYTimes - over 25 years
ARTISTS remain forever separate and unequal. There's no way to legislate parity. As a black film maker, Spike Lee has one terrific advantage over his white contemporaries who, like him, came out of film schools. He not only knows how to make movies, but he also has something to make movies about: the pluralistic American society that is not quite

LEAD: Urban crises. Political corruption. Bureacratic incompetence. The homeless. What do you do when everything begins to seem utterly hopeless? Put them all into a sitcom, that's what.

The critics were undecided: Was Lena Horne simply incomparable or was she comparable to, say, Edwin Booth in ''Hamlet'' or Caruso in ''I Pagliacci''?
