The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895

SUB comes alive for Friday Night Live SAC kicks off Welcome Back Days

By John Scott @JScott050901 On Friday, Aug. 19, Lobos flooded the Student Union Building at the University of New Mexico for Friday Night Live, a one-night activity event kicking off Welcome Back Days. Laser tag, casino games and free food were just a few of the highlights from the late-night gathering. This event was only the first in a series of events called Welcome Back Days, aimed at welcoming students back to campus after summer break — other planned events include the Class Crawl, Movie on the Field, President’s Ice Cream Social and UNM Community Day. The primary purpose of this kickoff event was to connect students not only with one another, but with the various organizations and clubs available on campus, according to Student Activities Center advisor Rudy Montoya. “It’s primarily intended to get students connected; it’s a little bit more social … We’ve invited chartered student organizations to showcase their work …

It’s a good chance for them to share who they are, what they’re doing, recruit new members,” Montoya said. For Ethan Krammer, a senior studying nuclear engineering and former president of the American Nuclear Society at UNM, the event helps with networking and getting the word out about their organization to students as well as spreading the word about nuclear engineering more broadly. “It works for us two-fold. Our first thing is obviously to get people that are interested in nuclear policy and energy and power and get them involved in our student section here on campus, but we’re also here to inform people about nuclear energy (so they) know … it’s a thing that is good for combating climate change,” Krammer said. Montoya emphasized how an event like this can allow new and returning students alike to form new connections with people and organizations across campus. “The biggest opportunity is connections. It allows people to meet each other … We get a lot of brand new students who’ve just

moved to campus; they’ve been in the residence halls around campus for an entire day at this point … It’s a great way for new people to have an experience and become friends. It’s a great for returning groups, returning friends to connect with each other and be in campus and in

person and sort of just engage all around,” Montoya said. The event helps to make starting college a less intimidating experience, according to Rosie Deal, a freshman exercise science major. “It makes it a little bit less scary, too, because I feel like

them to be more prepared for their work. “So we’re making progress on having a two-step process where there’s a draft contract that has these assistantship duties and descriptions that can be negotiated before it gets sent for final approval by graduate studies office,” Vigus said. However, the Union did face arguments with the University over a grievance clause, which is outlined by the Public Employee Bargaining Act as an avenue where employees — but not the University — can file grievances; the University has been calling for equal power to enact grievances through this same process, according to Cooney. Cooney is concerned about the potential room for abuse if the University is able to use it as well. “I think it’s also important because the University itself has a lot more money than employees do. And if they were wanting to take us to arbitration and spend an exorbitant amount

The United Graduate Workers of the University of New Mexico just wrapped up another bargaining session on Friday, Aug. 12 and are preparing for the next on Monday, Aug. 29, with a walkin planned for Monday, Aug. 22. While the Union is making progress, they still face difficulties from the University, according to Samantha Cooney, a member of the bargaining committee. “We’ve made a lot of movement with the UNM bargaining team towards an agreement on what those assistantship contracts should say and how much clarity we should have the right to before starting our job duties each contract period,” Cooney said. Previously, many graduate workers had experience with being asked to do personal tasks for advisors as a part of their job, according to Union member Megan Vigus. Having definitive job descriptions would also enable

game and role-playing game club Tabletop Tavern, recalled his own experience of joining Tabletop Tavern and how clubs and organizations on campus can help students find a sense of community. “I was looking specifically for a place to play (Dungeons & Dragons). It wasn’t until this club was made that I had that sort of club … And from this, I’ve met half the people I hang out with on campus. Without it, honestly, I wouldn’t know a lot of people,” Ruiz said. The importance of Welcome Back Days as a whole comes

down to community, according to Montoya. “It’s one thing to look at a ton of brochures and emails that students have received … It can be easier and more engaging to be able to walk around a set of tents or tables or in a building and actually see the people who are behind these programs and services. Not just to realize how vast and diverse the UNM community is, but also to be able to find their place and see what works for them, what’s interesting to them,” Montoya said.

economic bargaining, and it’ll be higher, of course, than what the University offered,” Cooney said. There is still no agreement over the union rights, which would include details about the Union’s ability to collect dues. The University is trying to push forward on its management rights, which would include details about rights over employment and operations. Cooney said they will not discuss management rights until union rights are agreed upon. They plan to move into discussions on economic barrag-

ing soon, however, they are still at stand-still in regards to the nondiscrimination article and have yet to reach an agreement on discipline and discharge. The Union is continuing to advocate for representatives present at any meetings involving repremands, according to Cooney. “We do still need to find an agreement on employee contracts and discipline on discharge, but we do hope to move on to economic sections soon, which would be about pay for grad workers and health insurance benefits, that sort of thing.

One of the things though, that has continued to stay stagnant is the nondiscrimination article, which is incredibly frustrating, of course, for our members,” Cooney said.

of money that the employees and Union just doesn’t have, I think it’s quite important that that right remains solely within the Union,” Cooney said. Another point of contention that was brought up was the University retracting raises that were given to some graduate students, claiming it was illegal to do so while bargaining with the Union. However, Vigus said there is no legal substance to the University’s claim; the raises would be illegal had the University used them to encourage graduate workers not to be in support of

the Union, but this was not the case. The raises are currently still retracted. “They’re trying to claim that they think that because they’re negotiating with the Union, departments aren’t able to offer raises, which is not true legally,” Vigus said. The University also argued that the raises would cause pay discrepancies between departments. This is already the case and the raises would not have a large impact, according to Vigus. “(We are) going to push for raises, of course, when we get to

LOBO OPINION REVIEW: ‘Bodies Bodies Bodies’ stacks up the schlock in satirical slasher The Independent Student Voice of UNM since 1895

Monday, August 22, 2022

Opinion Editor / opinion@dailylobo.com

By Spenser Willden @spenserwillden This review contains spoilers A24’s new satirical slasher “Bodies Bodies Bodies,” directed by Dutch actress Halina Reijn, seemed awful by the first trailer — a typical thriller told through the gimmick of influencer culture. To my pleasant surprise, the actual movie offered up a strong visual identity, intelligent humor and a passable story to tide audiences wary of hearing the same generational jokes we’ve heard thousands of times before. Though still gimmicky, and in many ways unoriginal, “Bodies Bodies Bodies” is an entertaining and aesthetic ride. The film follows recovering upper-class party girl Sophie (Amandla Stenberg) and her new lower-class girlfriend Bea (Maria Bakalova) as they hunker down for a hurricane party at her friend’s mansion. Animosities, secrets and fake friendships lead to an evening of tense confrontation and bloody fights for survival when members of the group turn up dead one by one. The performances in this film are exactly what one would expect from watching the trailer: broadly disappointing, but showing real strength in parts. As the night gets bloodier

and the ensemble gets trimmed, the performances get stronger — it helps that Pete Davidson’s phonedin “David” is the first to go. The four women who make it furthest in the film give by far the strongest performances, particularly Rachel Sennott as Alice, a vapid, drug-addled podcaster; Sennot shows a clear understanding of the source of the satire more than any other actor in the cast. It’s clear Sennott’s strength in “Shiva Baby” was no fluke — this is an actress and comedian to watch. Though “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” standout Bakalova also delivers a strong performance, it’s dampened by a lacking chemistry between her and Stenberg. The satire in this film works far better than the trailers would suggest. Though the first act suffers from what is clearly the voice of a screenwriter who is not part of Gen Z (Sarah DeLappe) ringing clear in the Gen Z dialogue, the satire grows sharper and more vivid as the titular bodies begin to pile up, reaching a pitch-perfect high point in the bloody third act confrontation between four of the survivors. “Bodies Bodies Bodies” exists in a space between slasher and whodunnit. Unlike the quintessential slasher-whodunnit “Scream,” “Bodies” finds pleasure more in the idea of a mystery than in actually setting

up compelling questions. Though many have lauded the twist ending, it felt like it undercut the promises of both genres far too much. Unlike “Scream,” the solution was evident by the second or third gorey execution, and as the misdirections gathered, they felt just like that — obvious misdirections. Though the camera work was as obfuscating as one would expect from what might be described as a chamber slasher, there were moments when the lack of contrast became almost too overbearing. It not only obscures the audience’s senses, but the script’s structure as well, especially in the middle

of the second act when the characters’ movements through the house felt unmotivated — wanderings and separations designed only to provide opportunity to raise the tension. Still, though this is only Reijn’s second feature, there are times where she shows great utilization of film’s visual language. The camera is hyper-cognizant of what light is coming from where, so through the survive-the-night section of the film, I’d recommend viewers pay close attention to the lighting, both diegetic and nondiegetic, while trying to notice the things the camera barely shows you. In classic slasher

fashion, your eyes only tell part of the story. This movie, while better than I was expecting, was still lacking in a lot of areas, but all in all, it’s worth checking out. Be prepared for an ambling-sort of film — not frightening or funny enough to fully fall into either camp, but enough of both to justify itself to its audiences. Come in with the trailers under your belt, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised with a perfectly fine night at the movies. Spenser Willden is the culture editor at the Daily Lobo.

Murphy and a young Amy Adams in her film debut, the movie actively avoids many hallmarks of the coming-of-age genre through its pitch-black comedy. This is not a movie focused on young love or personal acceptance, but rather a loss of naiveté concerning human life and the senseless acts of violence occurring right on the surface of our world. Tragedies in this movie are a dime a dozen, but they’re meaningless — the world just doesn’t care beyond the next scene when a beauty queen is blown to smithereens or a young man is shot between the eyes after scorning Richards. Horrible things happen, and it’s Dunst’s character who has to believe in some broader purpose in order to grow up. This isn’t to dissect the frog, though — what’s best about this movie is its razor-sharp humor. Though extremely dated at times, the movie is a cult classic for a reason, not just for Denise Richards performing a tone-deaf impression of Franki Valli to a pa-

per mache Jesus Christ on a cross. Like any movie featuring the late Brittany Murphy, “Drop Dead Gorgeous” is camp and imminently quotable. Awful pacing aside, this is the perfect movie to put on while you kick back with friends. Zara’s Pick: “Welcome to the Dollhouse” dir. Todd Solondz Cruel and heartfelt, unflinching and empathetic, Todd Solondz’s 1995 film “Welcome to the Dollhouse” is certain to make you laugh and immediately feel terrible for laughing. The film follows a twelve-year-old Dawn Weiner (Heather Matarazzo) as she navigates the harrowing world of middle school and attempts to come to terms with all of the new feelings and relationship dynamics that come with adolescence — sometimes blissful, sometimes tragic.

This film’s progression is objectively grim, as Dawn is the subject of bullying by peers, neglect by her parents and constant foibles in her pursuit of the ever-alluring high schooler Steve. However, there is a beautiful honesty that comes with Dawn facing increasingly awkward and terrifying events. As she’s slowly stripped of the guards humans often pad themselves with, she is left only with her innermost core of being. While her story ends on a minor key, there is a certain soothing quality to realizing that I was not alone in feeling like middle school was the end of the world. The film is chock-full of Solondz’ signature grim humor, which I think he executes fairly tastefully in this film. Dawn feels entirely real even when placed in totally unreal situations: the perfect embodiment of the isolation of

entering a new period of your life with nobody to guide you. The truth is that change can be ultimately painful, but even in the bleakest of situations, small moments of comfort may light your way. John’s Pick: “Days of Heaven” dir. Terrence Malik At first glance, Terrence Malik’s sumptuous 1978 film about life in the Midwest just before the Great Depression might not seem like a coming-of-age film. However, this film astutely exhibits the potential subtlety of the coming-of-age film and is one of the finest examples of subversion within the genre. Our three main characters — Bill (Richard Gere), Abby (Brooke Adams) and “The Farmer” (Sam Shepard) — all appear to be in their very early twenties, but are already faced with heavy, concep-

NEW MEXICO DAILY LOBO tually adult issues. Bill struggles to find work, The Farmer has come down with a serious illness and Abby just wants to settle down (an unfortunately weak character arc). We see them having to mature, or come of age if you will, through poetic vignettes of American life. But it’s through Linda, Bill’s younger sister and our narrator (brought to life by a brilliant Linda Manz,) that we find the essence of this coming-of-age tale. Through Linda, we see that our characters are given almost no time to be young. They find brief respite once harvesting season is over on The Farmer’s farm, but they are largely stuck — and history, as well as the film’s ending, tells us that things will not improve for these characters. They never grow and move beyond their immaturities like other films in the genre, but will stay stuck in a cycle of negation

and tragedy. The coming-of-age genre is broad, as are the experiences of growing up in different American eras and climates. No matter your experience, whether bitter and bleak, or exaggerated and meaningless, there’s a movie to reflect your perspective and help you find solace in the shared pain of getting older.

The Vortex Theatre presents “As You Like It” on Thursday, Aug. 19 as part of the New Mexico Shakespeare Festival.

tic director Peter Kierst, who has been a part of the festival since its inception in 2010. In 2019, the festival moved to the NM Veterans Memorial Park in partnership with CABQ and was officially renamed the New Mexico Shakespeare Festival. Peter Kierst, a constitutional law professor and Shakespeare scholar who plays Lear in this year’s production, performed cuts on the scripts to make them suitable for a modern audience. “We want to make sure that at all times the story is clear. As theater artists, we’re primarily storytellers … So we make them accessible by editing them so they are easy to understand. We don’t dumb them down, we don’t change the language, but (we make) sure the story is moving forward in a coherent fashion,” Peter Kierst said. “As You Like It” is this year’s comedy, concerning the niece of a duke fleeing into the forest to escape persecution and finding love in the process. It’s a pastoral comedy featuring classic Shakespearean hallmarks such as the wise clown, crossdressing woman and a marriage finale tying all threads together in holy matrimony. What drew Thudium to this

play in specific was the openness it offers and the way it lends itself so easily to music — the entire cast plays instruments in a Celtic folk style to accompany the play, ranging from the ukelele to the mandolin. “(The cast) is all incredibly musical and have this sort of wonderful, full feeling when they’re all jamming … I always knew I wanted this sort of Scottish/Celtic vibe to it,” Thudium said. “King Lear,” this year’s tragedy, follows a mythological British king as he rejects the daughter who loves him and embraces the two who flatter him, going mad with the end of his reign. Debi Kierst directs her husband Peter Kierst in the titular role. “It’s huge and canonical, and it’s a gigantic process … A project as big as ‘Lear’ probably requires deeper digging and a richer thought process,” Debi Kierst said. For Debi Kierst, herself a retired theater teacher, directing Shakespeare provides its own sets of challenges, including increased rehearsal, research and teaching the actors to understand the text itself. This process is often arduous — rehearsals began June 27 after months of


preparation, with auditions being held in January. “I find directing Shakespeare so much more fulfilling. It’s really exciting and fun to work on a play that is so rich and so full … It’s kind of you and the bard, you and Shakespeare. Obviously there’s collaboration with everybody else too, but the material is so rich that, honestly, I prefer it,” said Debi Kierst. Though it’s often dependent on weather, the festival averages out at about 200 audience members per performance, according to Peter Kierst. He credits the low ticket prices for drawing such a wide and diverse audience. “We are a New Mexico Shakespeare festival. We’re very much committed to being a homegrown, by-New Mexicans, for-New Mexicans Shakespeare festival. We don’t need to go any place else to find talented actors,” Peter Kierst said. A complete calendar of performances is available on the festival’s website. Spenser Willden is the culture editor at the Daily Lobo.
