EDITOR’S NOTE

Hair today, oil block tomorrow Spirits predict the future ho would think getting your hair cut could halt an oil spill? Now it can, thanks to a handful of Island salons who are rallying together to put all those clippings to good use. DANIELLE With increasing concerns of POPE the Enbridge Northern Gateway news@ Pipeline Project, 12 Victoria mondaymag.com and five Nanaimo salons have started gathering snipped hair — the most effective material to create hair booms and hair mats on shorelines for oil cleanup — in the case of an oil spill on the West Coast. Many of the same salons donated hair to clean up the Gulf Coast BP oil spill in 2010, and recognize that the hair grown right here on the West Coast can be put to use close to home in the event of a spill. Green Circle Salons has offered to store the hair in Burnaby, and will hand over the stockpile in the event of a spill. Human hair behaves much like the fur and feathers seen on oil-covered wildlife after a spill — it absorbs and clings to oil. “Until now, our industry’s waste has gone to landfills because it’s not like typical commercial or office waste,” says Jennifer Hennessey with Green Circle Salons. “We are diverting, literally, football fields full of waste each month.” Green Circle has been collecting hair from Ontario salons for over three years, but has just launched its operations in Metro Vancouver, Victoria and Nanaimo. “We can do this, one salon at a time,” says Hennessey. “We encourage each and every customer to ask their salon to become a Green Circle Salon member. Not only do we re-purpose the hair for oil spill cleanup, but we also pick up their foils, colour tubes and excess chemicals that would have otherwise gone into landfills or down the drain. These chemicals simply don’t belong in our waterways.” Participating Victoria salons include Aveda Institute, Carreiro the Studio, DesignHouse Salon, Gemi/ Phoenica Styles, Hive Hair, Kazen Hair & Beauty, Lab Salon, Luv Salon, On the Fringe, Parlour Salon, The Gallery, Wiink2 for Hair & Body. See GreenCircleSalons.ca for an updated list.

n ancient Britain, Halloween marked the end of the year when crops were no longer harvested and winter’s first cold breath arrived to chill the blood. On that night, between the old and the new, it was believed that the veil between the world of the living and that of the dead became transparent and malleable. Spirits of the dead were able to walk amongst the living, whispering secrets of the future yet to unfold. GRANT My Celtic ancestors encouraged this spiritual interacMcKENZIE tion by building sacred bonfires and wearing costumes of animal heads and skins, while attempting to tell each editor@ other’s fortunes. Trick or treat depended on whether the mondaymag.com fortune was good news or not. In those dark days, these prophecies were an important source of comfort and direction during the long, dark winter. If that same veil was lifted today, what wisdom would the dead have to tell us about the future? Let’s see. ■ Two years after the public referendum, the City of Victoria will finally accept a bid to rebuild the Johnson Street Bridge. Nobody will be happy with the decision, cost or design, but we’ll celebrate its official opening anyway. ■ The Liberal government will face its worst defeat in history during the spring election. Liberal faithful will try to point blame at Premier Christy Clark, while knowing full well that she inherited a sackful of manure and simply couldn’t make it smell like popcorn. The NDP will crow about how everything will be different now that they are in charge. We’ll switch back to the antiquated GST + PST tax system (a decision made emotionally rather than wisely), and then, suddenly, Enbridge will be given approval to build its pipeline through B.C. We’ll be told it’s for our own good in order to balance the budget and clear out some of that massive Liberal debt. Minimum wage will not be raised and shocked voters will realize for the umpteenth time that what parties say to get elected is entirely different from what they do once in office. ■ NDP nominee Murray Rankin will win the Nov. 26 byelection to replace outgoing Victoria MP Denise Savoie. His victory music will be “Your Boat’s Lost At Sea” by The Rankin Family as a message aimed directly at the ruling Tories. ■ Marijuana will remain illegal despite evermore higher-profile citizens, intellectuals and government leaders joining the call for deregulation and taxation. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, however, will keep the issue in his back pocket in case he needs to make it an election promise in 2015 to keep control of the majority. ■ Grant McKenzie will win millions on the lottery and won’t be able to stop smiling. Hmm, maybe my crystal ball is a little foggy. M

FUNDS TO EASE THE PAIN With news of the death of a 13-year-old Sooke boy who was hit by a pickup truck on Sooke Road last week, the surrounding community has heaved together to offer the only condolence it really can: fundraising for a grief-stricken single mother who can’t yet return to work, but has three other children to care for, along with looming bills and rent to pay. Troy Thompson, 31, was one of the first on the scene when AJ (Adam Jessie) Wakeling stepped off a bus with his twin brother, then crossed a street and was hit by a motorist. Thompson’s role quickly unfolded as support for Wakeling’s mother, Yannick Aubin, who remained in shock at the scene. “You feel helpless, because there is nothing you can say to someone in that situation — what can you Sale Effective Nov. 1st thru 7th, 2012

say? — but I did my best to pick her up off the pavement and just be there,” says Thompson. In an effort to do more, Thompson has started the Facebook page “Fund raising for AJ Wakeling,” which directs members to the online communitycreated fundraising page fundrazr.com/campaigns/ bNVE4. So far, Thompson’s page has gained 729 members in only a few days. More than $2,000 has been raised for the family.

CHEAP DRINK THE BEST KIND Try to withhold your gasps: people are less likely to buy high-alcohol drinks if they are more expensive. Research by UVic’s Centre for Addictions Research of BC (CARBC) and the Centre for Addictions and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto shows that people still pick saving money over getting drunk. The two groups followed sales data in Saskatchewan before and after a price-hike implementation. A 10 per cent increase in price resulted in a 22 per cent decrease in sales for high alcohol (6.5 per cent and up) beer. Coolers and cocktails also saw large reductions in sales, at 13.2 per cent and 21.3 per cent respectively. Funny enough, Alberta showed no change in per-capita alcohol consumption before and after the increase was implemented. Dr. Tim Stockwell, CARBC’s director and lead author of the report, says it’s quite easy for provinces to implement these kinds of policies because of government monopoly arrangements. “Saskatchewan’s new approach is right up there as one of the best. Their approach applies to all beverages, including spirits,” Stockwell says. “In B.C., minimum prices of spirits are the only ones that get adjusted with any regularity, so there’s been a shift towards cheaper beer, coolers and wine.” While price increases may be deterrents (in some locations), it does not reflect the social factors that lead to alcohol abuse, apart from a cursory connection to low-income populations. The implications of the study are geared toward policy makers, although riskier consumers, heavy and young drinkers, are cited as more inclined to purchase cheap alcohol.

MAIL Stopping a bully before torment begins

Re: Editor's Note: Mistakes are part of life, Oct. 25-31 I read at least 13 papers a week, and so in the last three weeks I have read many letters and editorals on this subject. As a young gay man in Junior and High School in the early ’70s in Victoria, for my friends and me, bullying was normal. It is rare when an adult can write to young people in such a way that you know they are listening. My wish is that parents and teachers pass this Editor’s Note onto their children and students to read. Your words may have stopped a bully from being a bully or maybe made someone stand up and refuse to be bullied. COLIN CRAIG, VICTORIA

And when you ask, that's when you'll know the true value of a friend." It was only by accident that I read this commentary, but it was no accident that I

Insightful message, but Another insightful message to help boost our awareness about "at risk" youth. I loved the article and always enjoy reading what you write. However, I don't agree with the word "weak" (in ‘from the weakest to the strongest’] to describe these young girls and boys. The adjective "vulnerable" seems more appropriate. The last thing any of us needs to be called is weak. Just being alive makes all of us vulnerable. We become weakened by the system, by illnesses, by stress, by lack of support, exposure ... and on it goes. If we are to evolve as a species, we must stop the war against vulnerable groups. We must understand that anything can happen to anyone at anytime. We are one. NELLIE M. POWER, VICTORIA

Caring people create change Re: Enbridge protest shortsighted, Letters - Oct. 25 - 31 News Flash: The 3,500 folks who showed up on the legislative lawn last Monday are concerned about our environment. It was not an "anti-prosperity" protest, but rather an anti-exploitation (of our natural resources) protest. There are far more economical opportunities in creating "green" initiatives and promoting renewable and sustainable businesses than in pillaging the last few drops of oil from Mother Earth. If we kill off all our treasured sea-life, blackening our magnificent coastlines with crude oil, what would attract tourists to this jewel of the west? How does that bring in the money? Change happens when caring folks get off the couch and make a stand. NANCY RAYCROFT, VICTORIA

Sowing seeds of job-loss fear With the current shaky state of many national economies, our provincial and federal governments have become adept at sowing fear of lost job opportunities

and economic ruin in individuals such as Mr. Perry whenever someone has the temerity to question the advisability of embarking on industrial projects such as the Northern Gateway Pipeline. The pipeline project will actually provide relatively short-term jobs in the construction phase, and few long-term pipeline maintenance jobs. For this we are asked to risk the huge economic (and environmental) loss of the north coast commercial and sportsfishing industries, and eco-tourism should a tanker spill bitumen during the treacherous journey through Douglas Channel. MURRAY GOODE, SAANICH

Oil disasters mean job boost Mr. Perry considers opposition to the proposed Enbridge pipeline shortsighted because it prevents job creation. To pipeline opponents, the jobs the project would bring simply aren't worth the risk. If job creation trumped all other concerns, and if this project went through, we might as well hope for plenty of disasters. Think of all the clean-up jobs this would create!

KIERAN REPORT

Clark brings Alberta rainmaker to town remier Christy C l a r k must be a lot more desperate than she’s letting on. It appears she has been forced to swallow her pride BRIAN and hire one of AlKIERAN berta Premier Allison bkieran@ Redford’s hand-memondaymag.com down political toy boys. Clark, who is having a spitting match with Redford over sharing tar-sands wealth, actually recruited her Alberta counterpart’s idle rainmaker Stephen Carter to perform unnatural political acts on this side of the border, starting with a cloak-and-dagger appearance at the party’s Whistler convention. Back in September, Alberta political blogger David Climenhaga predicted that Carter was poised for a new challenge in B.C. Climenhaga told his readers there was a good chance of “Carter showing up in Victoria with a smile on his face and a nice apartment overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca.” Carter takes credit for engineering Redford’s leadership campaign against front-runner Gary Mar, her election cam-

P

paign against front-running Wildrose Party leader Danielle Smith and for Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi’s campaign against front-runner Ric McIver. Climenhaga suggests Carter has been accorded way more credit for these saves than he actually deserves. The Alberta wunderkind believes British Columbians really want to like Clark, but we “just don’t know what it is she’s in government for.” Very insightful. His initial cavalier advice to Liberals at a behind-closed-doors session was to ignore the pollsters, media pundits and political scientists who he calls “the Holy Trinity of incompetence.” This has most certainly endeared him to Clark who hates pollsters as much as she hates NDPers. Maybe a made-in-Alberta solution is timely. Clearly, the advice Clark is getting here at home is skewed all to hell. During her pitch to convention delegates — “We have a big vision, a bold vision for our province, not a modest agenda, a bold one” — she claimed she can reverse her party’s death spiral if the remaining foot soldiers under her command get out and sell the Jobs Plan she says has created “57,000 new jobs” since being launched. That was a whopper even by Alberta standards. And, it prompted some of the loathed media pundits to do a little fact checking. It became instantly appar-

ent that Clark’s Jobs Plan claims do not square with Statistics Canada. Ottawa’s current labour force statistics indicate that unemployment in B.C. has actually increased over the past year to seven per cent. Full-time employment increased about 44,000 since the jobs plan was introduced, but part-time employment dropped 15,000 for a net increase of less than 30,000 jobs — nowhere near the 57,000 Clark takes credit for. I think the premier should have shopped for help on this side of the Rockies. I would have recommended her predecessor’s former chief of staff Martyn Brown, notwithstanding the fact that Gordon Campbell’s former consigliere has been pumping lead into Clark ever since he left government. Just before the convention, Brown wrote: “Step outside the tiny convention hall and beyond the din of the party faithful, and it all soon sounds like distortion.” Now that’s prescient. He has also reminded Liberals that “some 75 per cent of B.C. voters now plan to vote for parties other than the one in power. What they want, above all, is a real vision for a better British Columbia that is backed by specific policies and initiatives.” That’s the kind of tough love they need, not that glib Alberta crude.

CITY WATCHDOG

TROY TUCKER, Victoria

Thousands rally, but masked artists face heat ast week thousands of people gathered on the lawn of the legislature for what was billed by organizers as “one of the largest acts of civil disobedience in Canadian history.” This action consisted of erecting a black banner on stakes driven into the sacred ground of our provincial government’s seat to symbolize the proposed pipeline. SIMON The goal of this illegal action was to lure NATTRASS the Victoria police into playing the antagsnattrass@ onist and arresting a few dozen protesmondaymag.com tors under the watchful eye of the media. When VicPD refused to play along, the long-awaited act of defiance garnered little more than a cheer from the crowd and a few bored stares from unmoving officers. Meanwhile, a small group of local activists created a different kind of protest in a quiet corner of the lawn. The purpose, according to one organizer, was to create space to discuss the effectiveness of the protest and explore other forms of opposition.

L

Organizers were critical of the misguided theatrics of the international NGOs responsible for the Defend Our Coast rally, advocating instead for a new approach to protecting our bioregion. “People’s intentions were to go and ‘defend the coast,” but if we’re not addressing the systems that are attacking the coast or the indigenous people whose coast it is, then we’re not effective.” Despite their refusal to perform on the main stage, the Victoria police weren’t entirely absent from the day’s events. Officers arrested street performer Mikhail Miller — whose face was painted like a skull — and detained two fellow artists (dressed as a bird and a clown) on their way to the protest, informing them that it was illegal to wear a mask during the rally. “It was very invasive, and all we were doing was an artistic performance. I just didn’t feel like they had any right to be asking me for information.” Miller is correct — while a federal law is being considered to criminalize disguises in certain situations, VicPD jumped the gun with enforcement. A few weeks ago, I wrote that The Capital had been given a taste of real politics. After last week’s rally, local activists have shown that they can respond just as appropriately to political theatre. M

Victoria to lose unique music hub FORT STREET CAFÉ EVICTED FROM BUILDING he Fort Street Café has announced it will close Dec. 15, after the building’s landlord told the six-year-old business that it is no longer deemed suitable for the premises.

MOVEMBER: oothbrush, walrus, painter’s bru brush, lampseshoe, chevron, cookie cook duster, shade, horseshoe, lip sweater, man pelt — all names for what’s monly known as the mo more commonly moustache. m Over thee last few years, the moustache has been enjoying a resurgence, thanks inpart to the hipster phenomenon, but also due to Movember, the month-long campaign to raise funds and awareness about men’s health, notably prostate cancer and, more recently, mental health issues. Moustaches, or the lack thereof, get people talking — at least that’s the hope for the annual Movember campaign, launching Nov. 1 around the world. The idea is this: men shave their faces clean and register at Movember.com. Over the next 30 days, these “Mo Bros” selflessly search for sponsorship for their mo-growing efforts, all while grooming, trimming and waxing their brand new lip sweater into something stylish they can be proud MARY ELLEN GREEN of. arts@mondaymag.com One of these Mo Bros is Monday cover model Matt Morrison, night manager at Sugar Nightclub and owner of one of the most iconic moustaches in town — that is until last week, when he let Matthew Conrad of Victory Barber and Brand shave it for the cause. “It think it must be like what a hunter feels like when they’re about to take out a majestic elk in the wild,” says Conrad. “This is a beautiful creature I’m about to remove from the earth. I don’t hunt myself, but I imagine that’s how they feel.” Last year was the first time Morrison registered at Movember.com. “I’ve donated a portion of my tips every year, but this is the first year I’m really pushing it. I’ve got cards getting made saying, ‘Yes, I did have a fantastic moustache. How come I shaved it off? To raise awareness for men’s health,’” he says. “Every guy’s got a prostate and every guy’s got a brain, so it’s important to be aware of the health of both of them. Especially mental health issues; people are all like ‘That guy has a disorder and it’s a very big deal.’ No it’s not. A lot more people do than most people realize.” “Let’s face it,” adds Conrad. “The prostate has a pretty bad rap already. Anything we can do to make it more fun to talk about ... It’s an uncomfortable topic, it’s uncomfortable to check, it’s something we sweep under the rug. Girls talk about boobs and breast cancer all the time. It’s also a nice chance for men to grow a moustache and get their girlfriends off their back because they’re doing it for charity,” he says with a laugh. “Regardless of why you decide to grow a moustache, the fact is that it draws attention to something important.” The Movember campaign has picked up significant speed since its launch in Melbourne, Australia in 2004. Since then, more than two million participants have raised almost $300 million for its causes. Canadians came onboard in 2007 and Movember received official charity status in Canada in 2011. More than $64 million has been raised and allocated to men’s health initiatives in the areas of awareness, education, research and survivorship across Canada — almost $360,000 of that to various research studies at UVic since 2010.

use, provide you with a better shave once you learn how to use them, and they’re just classic — anything with a small element of danger makes it more masculine.” Victory Barber and Brand is a seven-chair, full-service barber shop, offering everything from a no-fuss barber’s buzzcut to the classic hot-lather shave, complete with hot towels, steam treatment, foamy lather, a straight-razor shave and a “renewed masculinity.”

RENEWED MASCULINITY

After

(so long as it grows back)

MALE GROOMING Conrad opened Victory Barber and Brand in the Atrium building on Blanshard in July 2011, with a strong focus on male grooming, but not the Maxim Magazine version of masculinity. “There were a lot of men that were falling through the cracks, who couldn’t get what they want in a salon and couldn’t get a good haircut at a barber shop. We seem to have filled that hole,” says Conrad. “We don’t play to the contrived cliches of a barber shop — we don’t have porno mags, we don’t have sports on TV, because that’s what masculinity has been propped-up to look like now. It’s a super-shallow concept of masculinity. If you really look at those things, it’s an immature concept of masculinity — those are things that you do as a teenager — and part of the reason why we have a generation of grown-up boys now instead of a generation of grown men is because nobody really showed them that it’s time to grow into manhood, and

that’s what we’re doing here, we’re moving past the grownup boy and seeing what it looks like to be a gentleman, and sometimes that can be as simple as grooming.” Indeed. Conrad was inspired to open the modern barber shop thanks, in part, to a box of stuff he inherited from his grandfather when he passed away a couple of years ago. “My generation grew up with men deriving their style from the ’60s and ’70s, and if you look back there was a real disconnect with masculine grooming in that time. Women’s styles on men were really prevalent and so we really lost touch there,” says Conrad. “[My grandfather] had brushes and pomades, he always carried a comb and he had a safety razor. He was 95 years old when he died and he still used a safety razor — a screwtogether contraption that has a housing that holds a single razor blade. They’re slightly more dangerous than what we use now, but at the same time, they’re so much cheaper to

“I’ve been a hairdresser for 17 years, and before we opened this thing, the peak of men’s grooming, as far as hairdressers go, culminated in two words: Manscaping and Metrosexual — and both of those words are an absolute pox on our sex,” says Conrad. “It’s emasculating and it’s a problem that these cutesy marketing words are sucking any masculinity left out of any man who wants to be groomed —they turn them all into douchebags or Nancyboys and there’s nothing masculine left about being well put together. My grandfather wasn’t either of those things, he was never manscaped and he was not a metrosexual, but he was well-groomed every day of his life because he knew that part of being a gentleman is about presenting your best self to the world. We need to make it not only acceptable, but cool again, taking that gentile approach to life. When you present your best self to the world, you behave that way.” And Morrison feels the same way. “I think that metrosexual is used in a derogatory way and it sounds kind of homophobic — but what’s wrong with taking time to invest in your appearance and look good. Women do it. Here at the nightclub, you see women taking an hour to get ready and the guys spend maybe five minutes.” “No one’s ever said to me ’You groom your moustache? That’s not very manly.’ People respond well to the moustache. It’s usually ‘That’s a very manly moustache’ ... It’s also an instant personality ... Otherwise, I’m the average white guy, regular build with brown hair — I got nothing. But the guy with the giant moustache? Everyone knows who that is.” M MONDAY MAGAZINE NOVEMBER 1 - NOVEMBER 7 mondaymag.com

DRINKUP couple year s ago, most people wouldn’t have recognized a wine aerator if it fell out of the cupboard and landed on their head, but it seems lately, no self-respecting wine aficionado can do without one. Do they make a difference? Yes, they do, especially with reds. Though people often open a bottle of red to let it breathe, that is the equivalent of opening your car window a crack — it won’t make much difference as there is little surface area exposed. In order to aerate wine properly, you must decant it, though once you have done so, the older the wine, the sooner the clock starts ticking. Younger wines with higher tannin levels last a little longer. Wine aerators force air into wine more quickly, so instead of waiting 15 minutes after pouring a glass for it to breathe, you can

Finish with white and dark chocolate brioche pudding and raspberry coulis; Grand Marnier mousse with a crisp almond Amaretti cookie or vanilla bean panna cotta with wild berry compote.

MONDAY GUIDE > FILM & CINEMA OPEN CINEMA SCREENS PLAY AGAIN In collaboration with Habitat Acquisition Trust, Open Cinema presents Play Again, a documentary that explores the changing landscape of childhood as it relates to technology and nature. The film follows six young people liberated from their usual 5 to 15 hours of screen time (from computers to cell phones) as they get a hearty dose of nature. The changes these youth experience are immediate, inspiring and a little terrifying. According to the film, most children spend up to five months per year in front of a screen. They only have three and a half minutes of meaningful conversation with parents per week. Ninety per cent of their time is spent indoors. Sadly, most will not have this experience with nature and in truth no one knows what the consequences will be. As the film states early on, “This is a very large experiment that we’re enacting as a society.” Play Again is filled with these findings and Open Cinema is offering a space to do more than just watch. The screening will include a follow-up discussion between audience and a specially selected panel. Lisa Lockerbie, a teacher from Sooke Nature Kindergarten, Todd Carnahan of Habitat Acquisition Trust and David Segal of Power To Be adventure programs will be on the panel. Dr. Richard Kool, associate professor for environment and sustainability at Royal Roads University, will be the moderator. The technology being discussed won’t be shied away from, however. The café-style theatre will feature a Tweetchat wall projection during the post-screening discussion, which will also be streamed live. Luckily, they won’t be competing with any presidential elections in the Twitterverse as was the case during the first screening of the season! Join the conversation at #OCchats. Open Cinema screening Play Again, Wed., Nov. 7 at the Victoria Events Centre (1415 Broad). Doors open at 5:30pm and the film begins at 7pm with a suggested donation of $10-20. Refreshments available. Open to all ages. — Colin Cayer

Cloud Atlas mostly vapour OVERWHELMING COMPLEXITIES, UNDERWHELMING STORIES By Robert Moyes arts@mondaymag.com

ith a running time of nearly three hours, the wildly ambitious Cloud Atlas offers viewers a whole bunch of movie. Too much, in fact, and a lot of it mediocre and pseudo-profound. Based on the supposedly “unfilmable” novel of the same name by David Mitchell, Cloud comprises six separate plotlines that include an 18th century seagoing yarn, a diverse trio of stories from the ’30s to the ’70s, as well as a sci-fi tale of a fascist future Asia and ultimately a postapocalyptic account of neo-primitives set even further ahead in time. Trying to knit all this together are actors in multiple roles throughout the movie’s sprawling timeline (said actors sometimes shifting age, gender, and race in the process). There’s also a mysterious birthmark that recurs on various characters, and themes of honour, evil, redemption and reincarnation that are mostly heavy-handed tropes that get vigorously waved like flags at various junctures. In short, this is a movie that makes a great deal of noise about its own high-flying ambitions. And maybe it’s not too surprising that three directors collaborated on a project this big, with Germany’s Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) joining forces with Lana and Andy Wachowski (The Matrix) to get it all done. Although Cloud is easy to follow for a film this complex, it’s often annoying to watch due to the frequency with which we skip between subplots. This crosscutting is executed with technical cleverness and is used to underline thematic connections — which presumably was fun for the filmmakers but can be irritating to viewers who feel the emotional power of the individual stories becoming weakened. Equally wearying is the cumulative impact of a couple of

the performers. A very hairy and latex-covered Tom Hanks is onscreen for much of the movie; he plays, amongst several roles, a dentally-challenged doctor sneakily poisoning a patient, and a cowardly member of a primitive tribe. It’s painful to contrast his laboured efforts with those of England’s superb Jim Broadbent, who does so much more with an equal amount of screen time. And Halle Berry similarly fails to bring much interest to her bevy of roles. And for a film with a great eagerness to be inspirational, it is disappointing that there is really only one storyline — a musically gifted “rent boy” (Ben Wishaw, I’m Not There, Bright Star) who becomes the exploited amanuensis to a once-brilliant but now faded classical composer (Broadbent) — that seems to resonate with the truth you expect from a thoughtful novel rather than the plot-driven distractions of pulp fiction. (The subplot about the half-dozen seniors trying to break out of a nasty care home is sweet and very funny but little more than a lark — albeit one that echoes more serious concerns with fascism raised elsewhere in the film.) It’s hard to imagine who exactly is going to applaud Cloud, or tell their friends to rush out and see it. It’s a well-advertised “event” film, and one that could garner several Oscar nods. But most viewers will likely be overwhelmed by Cloud’s complexities at the same time as they are underwhelmed by the oftensketchy storylines. As grandpa used to say: what the Dickens?

CLOUD ATLAS ★★½ Directed by Tom Tykwer, Andy and Lana Wachowski Starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, R - 164 minutes Continues at the Odeon & SilverCity

FILM & CINEMA CALENDAR OPENING FLIGHT -(Odeon/SilverCity) Denzel Washington stars in a drama about a heroic pilot who "impossibly" saves an airliner from certain destruction, only to find himself in a world of trouble for unexpected reasons. Starts Fri. THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS -(Odeon/SilverCity) Russell Crowe, Lucy Liu and a small army of martial artists get their "fu" on with a rousing tale of gold fever and blood lust as rival warriors, bandits and assassins descend on a small Chinese village that supposedly holds a fortune ready for the plundering. Starts Fri. WRECK–IT RALPH -(Capitol/ SilverCity/Westshore) John C. Reilly provides the voice for a video-game villain who tires of being a bad guy and sets out on a quest that throws an entire video arcade into chaos. This animation lark includes the voices of Sarah Silverman and Jane Lynch. Starts Fri. ★★★½ END OF WATCH -(Caprice) Jake Gyllenhaal stars in a gripping and very realistic crime drama about a pair of L.A. cops who are marked for death after they confiscate some drugs and guns from a violent cartel. Starts Fri.

250-382-5853 sopranoskaraoke.ca

730 Caledonia Ave

★★★½ ARGO -(Capitol/Uni 4/ SilverCity/Westshore/Caprice) Despite some liberties taken with the facts, this account of a CIA agent who managed to smuggle six Americans to safety from Iran during the famed 1979-'80 hostage crisis is surprisingly even-handed, very suspenseful and truly entertaining. Directed by and starring Ben Affleck. ★★ THE BOURNE LEGACY -(Caprice) The hyper-kinetic spy series gets a flaccid and disappointing reboot with a new director and new actor (Jeremy Renner). Co-starring Rachel Weisz and Edward Norton. FUN SIZE -(Odeon/SilverCity/ Caprice) A teen girl has to babysit her little brother the night of a big Halloween costume party. Hey, what could go wrong?

★★½ CHASING MAVERICKS -(Odeon/Westshore) Gerard Butler plays a grizzled surf champ who agrees to mentor a young lad desperate to ride really big waves. Decent family fare, albeit a bit plodding. Based on a true story. ★★½ CLOUD ATLAS -(Odeon/ SilverCity) German director Tom Tykwer (Run Lola Run) combines forces with Andy and Lana Wachowski (The Matrix) to take us on an exotic, wildly ambitious trip as characters lead parallel and contrasting lives in six different storylines in the past, present, and future. Starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Hugh Grant. See review. DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: DOG DAYS -(Caprice) Greg is totally ready for summer when suddenly his plans all fall apart. What's the poor guy gonna do now? HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA -(Capitol/ SilverCity/Westshore) A hotel where vampires and sundry other monsters hide out from humans gets a big scare when a backpacking dude shows up looking for a room. This animated comedy features the voices of Adam Sandler, Kevin James, and Andy Samberg. ★★★½ LOOPER -(Odeon/SilverCity/ Westshore) This trippy, noir-tinged sci-fi thriller is a stylish mash-up of hitmen and time travel. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Premium Rush), Bruce Willis, and Emily Blunt. ★★★ MADAGASCAR 3: EUROPE'S MOST WANTED -(Caprice) Those mouthy NYC zoo escapees are up to their usual colourful antics in a wittily entertaining animation romp. THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN -(Caprice) Disney Studios produced this rather fantastical family-friendly tale about a childless couple who end up with a young boy under distinctly magical circumstances. Starring Jennifer Garner. THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER -(Odeon) This coming-of-age romantic drama focuses on a freshman introvert who is befriended by a small group of slightly crazy friends.

★★½ THE PAPERBOY -(Odeon) This lurid "swamp gothic" thriller is set in '60s Florida and features a man on death row who may be innocent, and a bunch of scuzzy characters who are certainly guilty of something. PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 4 -(Capitol/SilverCity/Westshore) The once-interesting trick of using faux found footage to give a spritz of realism to horror flicks is becomeing duller with every sequel to this series about spooky doings in the suburbs. ★★½ PARANORMAN -(Caprice) In an amusingly morbid slice of family animation, a misunderstood boy who can talk to the dead is the only hope to save his town from an army of zombies and ghosts activated by a centuries-old curse. ★★½ PITCH PERFECT -(Westshore) It's a gals-versus-theguys vocal throwdown, as competing campus choirs seem to have gone to college only to major in Glee. Although not exactly Oscar bait, this is lots of fluffy fun. ★★★★ THE SEARCH FOR SUGAR MAN -(Uni 4) This musical documentary features the incredible quest of two South African men to discover whatever happened to a Bob Dylan-style troubadour from the early '70s who never amounted to anything in his native America but became a huge superstar — and revolutionary influence — in South Africa at the height of Apartheid. ★★★ SEVEN PSYCHOPATHS -(Capitol/SilverCity) A struggling screenwriter accidentally gets mixed up with some really nasty criminals and lots of people die. With Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, and Christopher Walken. Not to all tastes, but this is a smart, darkly funny black comedy from the writer-director of In Bruges. SILENT HILL: REVELATION -(Capitol/SilverCity) This video gameinspired horror series goes 3D -— if only to give some depth otherwise lacking to its cliché characters and stock situations. SINISTER -(Caprice) Some gruesome "found footage" is at the centre of this horror flick that seems to owe a large debt to The Ring. Starring Ethan Hawke. Note: moves here from SilverCity on Friday.

★★½ TAKEN 2 -(Odeon/Westshore) Liam Neeson reprises his role as a retired CIA tough guy who has to use his nastiest skills when his wife gets kidnapped by the vengeful father of the goon that Neeson killed in the last movie. ★★½ TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE -(Caprice) Clint Eastwood plays an ailing and aging baseball scout who takes his estranged daughter (Amy Adams) along on one last recruiting trip. This predictable but engaging comedy-drama also stars John Goodman and Justin Timberlake.

Let’s face it, when you’ve taining; for others, it will be an opportunity got your eye on pretty goodies, money is so for closure; and for a few, it will be hell. (“Not handy, isn’t it? this again!”) Don’t worry. The lovely combo of Jupiter and Venus will bring more fun LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) and pleasure your way than any other sign. This particular Mercury retrograde is rather Enjoy parties, fun times, vacations, romantic lethal for your sign because it really does interludes, sports events and delightful times aggravate your daily tasks, your paperwork, with children. This energized Venus might all your communications with others on

a daily basis and everything to do with short trips and travelling. Flat tires, stalled cars, missed buses, traffic fines and parking tickets will be classic outcomes this month. Cheques will be late in the mail and you will definitely have confused communications and delays with many things you try to do. Don’t worry, you’re not losing it. It’s just what it is. But you can more easily finish writing projects and other business on your plate. (Cool!) Plan on socializing at the end of the week because you’re in the zone. You will dazzle others with your charm and diplomacy! SCORPIO OCT 23-NOV 21 Old money issues seem to be back on your plate again. (This could be good news or bad news.) Those of you looking for work should go back to where you have worked or applied before. Retrace your steps and work with prior contacts. You can more easily finish work projects now but getting paid for something could be delayed. Important purchases might be possible now, especially if you have been saving for something or hoping to get a particular item. Personally, life will take on a more rewarding aspect later in the week. You will have a warm feeling in your tummy about everything and you’ll feel loved. SAGITTARIUS NOV 22-DEC 21 You’re befuddled and frustrated by delays and snafus because this is one of the rare times that Mercury retrograde is happening in your sign! (Suck it up, cupcake.) Forgive my glibness, but you have no choice. You will have an opportunity to finish old business and gain closure with others about something important to you (perhaps). The lovely Venus/Jupiter influence later this week will bring you contact with friends (especially artistic types) and people from other countries or different cultures. You might travel with a group. You will certainly have fun and learn a lot in group situations, whether they are casual get-togethers or large meetings. Aside from these annoying little mistakes and delays, it’s a great week for you!

bosses, parents and VIPs, some of you will strike up a flirtation with someone older, richer or in a position of authority. (An affair with your boss?) Hmmm. AQUARIUS JAN 20-FEB 18 Old friends from the past will make life interesting now. Admittedly, running into some acquaintances could be a pain. However, your sign loves the gamut of the human condition. You like to observe people, especially in groups. You’ll get a kick out of reconnecting with many acquaintances at this time. By all means, grab every opportunity to travel for pleasure because this will fall in your lap later this week. Because your appreciation for beauty is heightened, give yourself a chance to enjoy museums, art galleries, parks, gorgeous architectural buildings – something. You’ll also love learning new

information about another culture or a different place. It’s a stimulating week! PISCES FEB 19-MARCH 20 Many of you will be involved with parents you haven’t seen for a while or you’ll run into bosses from your past or other authority figures. This could be interesting or it could be angst-ridden, depending on your past history with these people. It might be your chance to clarify or explain something or you might want to tell them to go jump in the lake. It is encouraging, however, to note that later in the week, gifts, goodies and favours from others will come your way. Keep your pockets open! Not only that, physical intimacy will be sweet, reassuring and fun-loving. Romance with someone from another culture could blossom. (It’s all very heady.)

Job Options BC (Victoria)

CAPRICORN DEC 22-JAN 19 While some people are really plagued by this particular Mercury retrograde, in large measure, you can benefit from it because you have a chance to go back over old issues that might have been troubling you for some time and finally put them to bed. (“Bye!”) You’ll also find that any research you have to do this month or digging for answers and solutions will be surprisingly easy and successful. It will be like a hot knife cutting through butter. And later this week, you will be getting such great press! In fact, you are looking so good to
