Dallas IFF: Wednesday (4/14) – 'Lemmy'

DIFF begins down the final stretch, and it just gets better every day. "I'm not qualified to do anything else." Greg Olliver and Wes Orshoski's documentary on Motorhead front man Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister is not so much a fully-realized personal history or detailed portrait as much as an intense love fest.  Lemmy takes a tour...

Dallas IFF: Thursday (4/8) – Opening Night, 'A Town Called Panic'

The 2010 Dallas International Film Festival got off to a rousing start as the Angelika Dallas center was host to multiple showcases (and a few celebrities, too).  Some of the night's screenings went off without a hitch (see below), while others hit technical snags:  apparently both screen and projection issues marred the presentation of Bill...
