What's the best thing about being Jerry Lewis? “When I open my eyes in the morning, I'm a hit!” Lewis tells Daily Herald film critic Dann Gire in an email interview for the comedy icon's on-stage appearance at the Paramount Theatre in Aurora. Lewis, 88, explains why he still goes out on stage and why he won't release his controversial Nazi concentration camp drama “The Day the Clown Cried.”
Keaton nails quirky tale of artistic redemption
Alejandro G. Iñárritu shot “Birdman” in 30 fleet days with Emmanuel Lubezki's superior camera work effortlessly piecing the story together in a seemingly seamless single take, or at least close to it. It's the kind of daring, accomplished work that critics and Oscar voters notice — along with other delectable cinematic elements to behold in “Birdman,” such as Michael Keaton's performance.
'John' a Wick-ed, action-packed tale of stylish revenge
Just when we thought we'd had quite enough of retired cops, hitmen and special-ops agents forced back into active duty to mete out justice, Chad Stahelski's “John Wick” shoots us between the eyes with an old-fashioned revenge tale directed with tongue-in-cheek humor, choreographed with bone-breakingly realistic stunts, and edited on Red Bull. Keanu Reeves stars as a retired Russian killer.
'Dear White People' addresses race with comic touch
“Satire is the weapon of reason,” one character tells another in “Dear White People,” a movie that exemplifies that sentiment with a potent combination of playfulness and pointed cultural critique. This alternately thoughtful and hilarious comedy of campus manners is the bracingly candid brainchild of first-time filmmaker Justin Simien, who has created that rarity in American society: a movie that simultaneously sends up the national “conversation about race” while advancing the conversation itself.
‘23 Blast’ fumbles faith-based football tale
Faith meets football in the film "23 Blast," the fact-based story of a high school player blinded by an aggressive eye infection. Just as the teen reaches his nadir of self-pity, his coach devises an outlandish plan for him to rejoin the team. It's a sweet story, but not nearly as strong as it could have been in more experienced hands.

full story »The ‘Last Madman of Rock ’N’ Roll’ finally restsI am positive the image of Paul Revere (actually, his real name was Paul Revere Dick) that came into the minds of those who knew him, when they learned of his death, was one with a huge smile. It was infectious, warm and evoked a sense of happiness even before the music began to play. I consider myself very fortunate to have worked with him and the other boys of the band in Revolutionary War costumes who took the stage at The Arcada Theatre many times.
