St. Petersburg Times: Weekend

August 23, 2001

If it’s too bold, you’re too old Kevin Smith takes moviegoers on a wild ride in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Just try to keep up. Jay and Silent Bob kicks *#%&!

Cover story
Inspired rebellion
Those who can get past the sure-to-offend language that powers Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back are in for a treat.

'Deep End' is deeply satisfying
Exquisite acting, rich cinematography and score, a dramatic plot: This movie brings unexpected, but welcome, chills to summer's dog days.

Family Movie Guide
The Family Movie Guide should be used along with the Motion Picture Association of America rating system for selecting movies suitable for children.

The 'Curse' of an aging actor
The Curse of the Jade Scorpion suffers from warmed-over Woody Allen the actor. He's too old for his role, and his character unbelievable. And Allen the director tries a bit too hard to conjure up old triumphs.

Renowned artist's work on display at USF
Robert Mapplethorpe's figure in Untitled #1 takes on the appearance of bronze sculpture, not surprising in light of the fact that the artist studied sculpture first, switching to photography only after he purchased a camera to document his efforts. His art, unlike documentary photography, has been described as "stark formalism."
