Auteur Watch - Nancy Savoca

Ah, my dear! How long it's been since I've been livin' La Vida Savoca. The early 90s are probably her favorite decade. Big Earth Day anniversary, Deee-Lite and Nirvana. It still seemed possible to fight the power and win back then. Not so much anymore. But in the final analysis, the only things of hers I've seen are the two biggies: Dogfight and Household Saints. NOT Boondock Saints. Oh, why did I have to throw that in? This is probably sexist of me, but I can't help but wonder: what would Nancy think of Lili Taylor's performance in Factotum? Would she be disappointed as I kind of was, or would she say You go, girl! Way to get in touch with your inner slut! I gotta go...
