Where's Marlowe? Review


Good
If you're going to make yet another mockumentary of something, it's good to pick a topic that hasn't been done to death, at least, and that's where Where's Marlowe? manages to succeed. Parroting the private eye genre, with Miguel Ferrer as our Sam Spade wannabe, a documentary crew follows him around until it becomes obvious he is so hapless that he is going to lose his whole business. To salvage the situation, the crew decides to join Ferrer's crew and help him finish his last few cases -- ensuring they still have a movie but breaking the detached and unbiased role of a documentary crew. Up until this point, the movie's a lot of silly fun, goofing on both documentary and P.I. cliches with aplomb. But after this point the movie becomes all about the actual case... alternately meaningless, confusing, and just plain stupid. Where's Marlowe? Who cares?

Dopamine Review


Very Good
This film takes the chemistry behind romantic attraction as the leading ingredient in the struggle between the sexes. It puts a guy who is too intellectual for his own good together with a gal who is more inclined toward emotional fulfillment.

The guy is Rand (John Livingston), a computer graphics designer working with two partners on a 3-D animated bird figure (Koy Koy) that learns from and responds to voiced expressions, taking the concept of interactivity to a higher level. They're doing the breakthrough work for a Japanese client who asks them to install the software in a kindergarten class for a real world test of the product. Rand balks, worried that his creation may not be ready for public exposure, but his partners in the San Francisco startup venture, Winston (Bruno Campos) and Johnson (Reuben Grundy), recognize the wisdom behind the request and override Rand's objections.
