As I often tell people these days — stop me if you’ve heard this one before — while the growth of Savannah itself over the past decade hasn’t been all that remarkable, the growth of the local arts and cultural scene has skyrocketed exponentially. (A cynic might say it’s too bad that our staff and budget haven’t also skyrocketed exponentially to keep up! But I’m not a cynic so of course I’d never dream of saying that.) A cynic might also say that Savannah’s clear and sincere devotion to the arts is one of the major reasons to stay here at all, considering the staggering poverty, ridiculous violent crime rate and the poor state of the school system. And there’s some truth to that — if you’re going to literally risk life and limb to live somewhere, that place better offer something that most other places don’t. And Savannah does. I challenge anyone to find a market of comparable size in the U.S. that offers as wide a variety of high– quality, affordable arts and culture. What’s more: Savannah offers a remarkable assortment of free cultural events. As much as I bash the City of Savannah government in this space, I have to give credit where it’s due: This is thanks primarily to our Mayor and City Council (current Mayor Edna Jackson as well as former Mayor Otis Johnson) deliberately making the arts a priority for funding. Cities always have a choice whether or not to invest in the arts. Thankfully, our city leaders have so far seen the wisdom in opting to do just that. Savannah offers so many high-quality free events, in fact, that sometimes arts groups in town who sell tickets will occasionally grumble that it’s hard to sell culture when the city gives so much of it away for free. I suppose they may have a point, but that’s a subject for a different column. We celebrate Savannah’s cultural scene this week with our annual Fall Arts Preview special issue. Yup, if you’re counting, that’s our second special issue in a row, along

with last week’s College Student Guide. What can I say? We’re productive as all get–out over here. Gracing our cover this week is a specially commissioned design by local artist and all-around righteous dude Jose Ray, who I think you’ll agree captures the essence of Savannah’s cultural ethos — as we had every faith that he would. While like most of you I thoroughly enjoy attending concerts and shows around town, the only disconcerting part of the experience is the fact that I typically see so few school–age people in attendance. I get the fact that parents need a grown– up night out every now and then, believe me I do. But it’s part of parenting to expose your children to arts and culture. This is true whether you can afford a ticket or must limit yourself to the many free offerings that Savannahians are fortunate enough to have available. And the argument about the extra ticket or two for the kids costing too much doesn’t wash either, because, you know, babysitters. To be clear, I’m not talking about bringing your babies or toddlers to shows — please don’t, and leave those ginormous double-wide strollers at home too! — I’m talking about that wonderful, crucial, impressionable (and generally well– behaved) age range between about 8–14. Call it middle school age, give or take. Whatever the label, it’s an extremely important time in a young person’s moral, emotional and spiritual development, and I think it’s no coincidence that most behavioral problems tend to manifest at that age, if they’re going to manifest at all. For example, when I take my daughter to the Savannah Music Festival — which regularly brings in some of the best musicians

in the world, generally at reasonable prices — she’s often the only person remotely in her age group in attendance. I worry about the overall mental and spiritual education of the many more children who are not afforded these opportunities, often by parents who can clearly afford to take advantage of them. These are often literally once–in–a–lifetime opportunities which have the power to literally change lives. Why not invest in the most precious person in your life by taking them to see such a thing? I interviewed local dancer and choreographer Karen Burns for a story this issue about a Savannah Dance Festival event. One of her quotes which didn’t make it into the story — but which I think illustrates my point well — is this: “Nothing against sports, but parents take their kids to sports events all the time, and then they’ll talk about them afterwards,” says Burns. “Why not do that with the arts?” Indeed. One might be tempted to respond, well all this is easy for you to say, Jim, since you get all those free tickets to things. It’s true that one of the perks of this job is occasionally getting to attend the occasional show for free. But that’s not always the case, and as I said in any case it’s a parent’s job to expose their children to the personal development that the arts offer. Rant over. So this week please enjoy our Fall Arts Preview to mark the more–or–less official start of the autumn festival season. We’ve done our level best to provide a complete, accurate listing of upcoming events on stage, on screen, and in the galleries. There’s no doubt in my mind that there are some things we missed! The remedy for that is to simply make sure and check out each weekly issue of Connect Savannah as it comes out, either in print or online.

The (Civil) Society Column

Please don’t (breast)feed the squirrels There it goes again, that skreeky garbled chatter. Two squirrels are noising it up in the water oak in my front yard, bickering over who left the top of the acorn open, or whatever it is squirrels argue over. From the ground it sounds like Charlie Brown’s teacher and her friends downed too many Red Bulls. Since I already have two human children nattering at me, I throw a pinecone into the canopy and watch them scatter. Usually, I go gaga over Savannah wildlife—I almost crashed my bike yesterday following a massive hawk through Daffin Park—yet I tend towards the apathetic about squirrels. My spirit droops every time I see one of them flattened in the street,

Squirrel-hunting season in Georgia ends Feb. 28

but there’s no denying they look like big–eyed, bushy–tailed rats. And rats simply don’t count—there’s the whole bubonic plague thing, plus the fetid little f@#*rs snarfed all the peppers in our garden this summer. Squirrels fall into the same nebulous category of urban wildlife as pigeons: Cute critters that will eat out of your hand or disease–ridden pests? A wholly unscientific inquiry conducted on Facebook last week revealed that it can go either way, depending on how many of them are breeding in the fiberglass insulation in your attic. There’s also another role these beguiling rodents can play that many of us haven’t considered, since we are soft and spoiled and like our meat already skinned: Apparently, squirrels make pretty good eatin’.

Many of you adore squirrels and find their ubiquitous chatter delightful. You may have even, so help me, touched one. But there is a line: A few weeks ago, my daughter and I were sitting in front of Brighter Day enjoying some tempeh salad when a couple and their son came out of the store and sat down. The mother cuddled a tiny squirrel while the father shmushed what looked like peanut butter into an eyedropper. We watched with eyebrow–raised interest as the mom, wearing a strapless maxidress, made a nest of paper towels on the ample shelf of her bosom and nestled the animal into her cleavage. My daughter looked at me in horror. A baby anything is pretty darn cute, but this was getting weird. Over the next 10 minutes, several people stopped to coo over the mother’s breasts, sharing their squirrel rescue stories while we tried to finish our lunch. A lady came out with her groceries and squealed. “Oh, wonderful! Have you raised squirrels before?” The family admitted they hadn’t. The lady commenced an informative lesson for the new squirrel parents, explaining that the most important thing was to keep it hydrated. She then relayed that the last squirrel she raised after it fell onto her porch seemed to really enjoy breastmilk. At this, kombucha sputtered out my nose. “Excuse me, ma’am, but did you just say you BREASTFED A BABY SQUIRREL?” All of them looked at me. The woman sniffed as the other squirrel mother shifted her chest nest around to protect it from such rudeness. “Well, no. I pumped it first.” My daughter exploded into a hacking cough designed to cover up an acute case of the giggles. The woman turned back to her squirrel–raising proteges and continued her lecture on imprinting, pouring a slosh of her $4 coconut water into their eyedropper. I could take no more. We tossed our recycling and got on our bikes. I may never be able to hunt a squirrel—no matter how dire the circumstances—now that I cannot shake the image of the lady breastfeeding a baby squirrel. What’s worse, someone just told me that Hilton Head has squirrels the size of small dogs. cs


I wasn’t aware that Georgia’s official squirrel hunting season opened up a month ago, but Dept. of Natural Resources regional supervisor David Mixon assured me that it’s a venerated fall pastime across the state. “It used to be more popular, and in certain areas it still is,” says the Brunswick–based regional supervisor. “It’s a good way to introduce young people into sport hunting.” To legally hunt squirrels until the season closes on Feb. 28, you must first obtain a license, use a registered firearm and observe the maximum daily limit of 12 dead ‘uns. Before y’all go around shooting up the neighborhood, please note that discharging a gun anywhere in the city limits will bring a SWAT team down upon you and get you permanently disinvited to block parties. If I need to tell you that hunting squirrels in parks and other public property is a no–no then you may need a short vacation somewhere with straightjackets. These are the legalities for small game, but Mixon told me that the game warden isn’t going to cause you any issues if you off a squirrel with a BB gun or air rifle in your backyard for eating the birdseed. Though I’m not sure I want to come over for a BBQ anytime soon. Then again, I’ll eat pretty much anything as long as someone else cooks. Speaking of which: According to Mixon, squirrel does not, as the old adage goes, taste like chicken, but rather has a taste all its own. His recipe? “I wrap it in bacon and bake it. It turns out great.” Our family has been watching episodes of Man, Woman, Wild on Netflix lately so it’s heartening to know there’s a plentiful food source should our minivan break down on the Truman Parkway and we must survive off the land while waiting for AAA, which in our experience can take upwards of three days. I’m pretty sure my husband can start a fire with a Styrofoam cup and marsh gas. Please know that I am NOT advocating the death of any squirrels here; I am simply providing information to the subset of the population that has a special revulsion for them. I personally have nothing against squirrels and think fondly back to when my son would only wear a white shirt to Forsyth Park so his furry friend Rico—distinguishable by a notched right ear—could recognize him.

Tony Monaco’s jazz adventure A master of the B3 organ headlines the Savannah Jazz Festival by Bill DeYoung |

Said Critical Jazz Review: “Tony Monaco may be the best organ player you have yet to hear of flying stealth while playing arguably some of the hottest B-3 around.”

For the 31st annual Savannah Jazz Festival, the Coastal Jazz Association has assembled a particularly smokin’ array of musicians both young and veteran. With such a fine and venerable track record, there’d be no reason to expect anything less from the CJA, which has been the banner–carrier for jazz in Savannah since the 1980s. The festival begins Sept. 23 and runs a week. And everything is free. For that, you get concerts and jams with all or most of Savannah’s finest players, in various configurations, plus appearances by Lil’ Ed and the Blues Imperials — a smoldering electric Chicago–blues band — and Columbia’s gypsy jazz outfit Swing 42, plus a documentary film about jazz piano legend Marian McPartland and loads of other cool stuff. This year’s headliner is Hammond B3 organ great Tony Monaco, whose work with guitarist Pat Martino (last year’s headliner) is the stuff of legend. Monaco is a world–renowned jazz player who’s toured the world numerous times

For me, the B3 sound is such a silky sound, inextricably bound with jazz. How did it find you? Tony Monaco: I started playing accordion when I was 8 years old. When I was 12, I was given a Jimmy Smith record to listen to. And that hooked me, man. I had a little record player that I used to play the Beatles 45s on, like “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” I put this LP on, and the whole side of the album was one song, “The Sermon.” Twenty–two minutes. And probably two seconds in, I was glued. I kept staring at the record. The album cover had these long black fingers, you know? And I listened to this velvet sound coming out of this little record player, and it was just like “Man, I want to do that!” I was hooked. That was it.

It’s not like playing the piano, is it? Tony Monaco: Quite opposite. I think the organ’s closer to the accordion in terms of its capabilities. It’s difficult to learn music, and most people who begin the journey as a musician end their journey still trying to learn it. It’s a lifelong thing just to be a musician, anyhow. Yeah, it’s a difficult instrument to learn. You’re playing left–hand bass, and you’re coupling it with your foot. If you really ever get to that point — a lot of organ players bang on the pedals, but they don’t know what they’re doing. I’m actually playing real, coordinated left–hand basslines, and the feet are coordinated as well, whether it’s a choice to tap as percussion, or to double the notes, or play octaves. That takes a long time to coordinate that. Then you’re right hand has to be a soloist and a guitar player while comping, and you have to learn textures and sounds. So the comparison to the piano would be the fact that it has a keyboard. The difference is, the organ you can sustain forever, and you change the volume with a pedal. And the piano, you have to constantly re–strike and you change the volume

by how hard you hit the keyboard. So the harder you hit the organ, the more it goes against you. You want to develop a touch that’s light and use your foot for expression. It’s a total immersion into the instrument. I’ve developed this technique for teaching online, and I find the more I teach, the more I need to learn. I love that part of the journey as a musician. I love learning. Running into Joey DeFrancisco was a major turning point for you, wasn’t it? Tony Monaco: I had kind of put away the dream of travelling around the world playing jazz organ. I was divorced and raising three daughters, and working hard running a construction business. So I just played on the weekends to make extra money and have fun. I met Joey, and he said to me point–blank “Why aren’t you doing this for real?” it sort of re– sparked my belief that I could. I have not stopped. I’m trying to constantly develop new ways to make a living as a full–time musician. Because it’s not like a job, it’s an adventure, you know? CS

“I find the more I teach, the more I need to learn,” Tony Monaco says. “I love that part of the journey as a musician.”

A capacity crowd of 7,500 filled the Martin Luther King Arena last Saturday to hear Sir Elton John and his band - the largest Savannah audience since the 65-year-old British legend’s last show here, in 2008. Opening with “Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)” and “Bennie and the Jets,” John performed for 2 1/2 energetic hours. The set list included one massive hit after another - “Rocket Man,” “Philadelphia Freedom,” “Daniel,” “I’m Still Standing,” “Your Song,” “Crocodile Rock” and even deep-cut favorites like “Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters” and “Grey Seal.” The band included guitarist Davey Johnstone and drummer Nigel Olsson, Elton’s longtime musical collaborators.

Bonnie Raitt

Ron White

Ron White

Sept. 30, Johnny Mercer Theatre. With a wit as dry as the flat prairies of his Texas home, White’s a veteran of the semi–legendary Blue Collar Comedy tours. But his humor – pithy and sarcastic – has grown exponentially, and he’s many miles ahead of Larry the Cable Guy. Expect 90 minutes of hilarity as White puffs on a cigar and drinks from his ever–present glass of onstage Scotch.

Bonnie Raitt

Oct. 13, Johnny Mercer Theatre. The raven–hair blues rocker makes her second Savannah appearance in two years; she’s got a fine new album out called Slipstream, which NPR’s Ken Tucker called her best work since the mid 1970s: “Raitt has always possessed a gift for taking a familiar phrase and rendering it in a manner that compels a listener to think anew about what the words really mean.”

Louis C.K.

Oct. 17. Johnny Mercer Theatre. Daniel Tosh has already been to Savannah this year (two sold–out performances in April), so it’s only logical that another of America’s hottest and most cutting–edge comics pays us a visit. The bitterly angry and perpetually perplexed Louis (Emmy–nominated for Louie on the FX Network) has mellowed a bit, according a recent review in Entertainment Weekly: “It was a fresh mix of the I–hate–myself–and–want–to–kill–you–while– making–you–all–cringe Louis that made him famous, with the a–little–more–okay–with–himself–and–the– world Louis.”

Quicksilver and others. Just too good.


Louis C.K.

Ingrid Michaelson

Oct. 18, Trustees Theatre. Singer/songwriter Michaelson’s music was used extensively in the TV series Grey’s Anatomy during its peak years. Hey, “The Way I Am” was ubiquitous, as were the Old Navy commercials that used it as a hook. On this tour, she’s joined by Sugar + The Hi Lows.

Savannah Philharmonic

Oct. 19, Lucas Theatre. For the second Lucas concert of the season, artistic director Peter Shannon conducts a “Celebrate America!” program, with music from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and An American in Paris, plus Leonard Bernstein’s uber–dramatic (and oh–so–American) West Side Story and On the Town, film music by Elmer Bernstein and more. Vocal soloists: Ann Marie McPhail (soprano) and Joshua Carswell (tenor), co–winners of the 2012 American Traditions Competition.

The Boxcars

Oct. 26, Randy Wood Guitars, Bloomingdale. Mandolin master Adam Steffey and fidder Ron Stewart front this high–energy bluegrass outfit. Between them and the other guys, the band’s pedigree is a mile wide, with stints with Alison Krauss & Union Station, JD Crowe & the New South, Doyle Lawson &

Nov. 8, Johnny Mercer Theatre. This South Carolina Christian rock band reached the (secular) Top 20 with the 2009 album The Outsiders, and last year’s The Reckoning did even better, peaking at No. 6. The Dove Award–winning Needtobreathe opened Taylor Swift’s 2011 tour; “The type of people we’re looking for are people who dig what we do,” says guitarist Bo Rhinehart. “And that’s it. So we welcome any type of fan.”

Jake Owen

Nov. 10, Johnny Mercer Theatre. A native of Vero Beach, Fla., Owen sometimes gets lost among the cookie–cutter country singers being churned out by the Nashville machine. But don’t the radio–friendly party anthems (“Yee Haw,” “Barefoot Blue Jean Night”) turn you off; he is a great singer with a barrel–chested, Haggard–esque baritone (see “Don’t Think I Don’t Love You” and “Alone With You”), and his stage shows are celebratory affairs.

Savannah Philharmonic

Nov. 17, Lucas Theatre. Soprano Rebecca Flaherty, tenor Cooper Nolan and bass Keith Harris join Peter Shannon and the Phil, plus the Savannah Children’s Choir, for selections from Carmina Burana, Peer Gynt and Finlandia.

Fall Arts Preview: performing arts Karen Burns, center, shows dancers a move

SAA dancers in poodle shirts on stage at the school’s auditorium



This is festival season in Savannah. One of the newest and most long–awaited entrants into that already–crowded field is the Savannah Dance Festival, which makes its inaugural debut next year. An important event leading up to the Dance Festival is a combo funds–and–awareness-raising performance this weekend. “Pina with a Twist” actually comprises two nights of dance–related entertainment: The multi–genre show Twist at Savannah Arts Academy Saturday night, and the acclaimed dance documentary Pina in three screenings Sunday at Muse Arts Warehouse. You can go see one or the other or both, and combo tickets are available at Contributing choreography and performance to the show is a who’s– who of local creative dance talent, including Christine Shawl, Vincent Brousseau, Muriel Miller, Darrell Davis, Elizabeth Newkirk, Trina Dodd and Nora Clark. Karen Burns, one of the choreographers and dancers in the production — who’s also directing the show

— explains the idea behind it. “The idea of the choreography is that everyone was supposed to be inspired, if even in the tiniest way, by a fairy tale. That’s why it’s called with a ‘Twist’ — it’s a twist on a fairy tale.” But there’s a larger goal as well. “We’re hoping to get more people aware of the different types of dance there are in town. We’re not touching on everything. There’s no ballroom and we’re not doing Highlands, or things like that. Those seem to have their own followings,” Burns says. “But modern, ballet, jazz — the followings for those here seem to be the parents and friends of the people in the shows. We’re trying to change that so that people will come to a program because they’re interested in it, not just because they know someone in the show.” The Twist show at SAA involves a diverse cast including not only SAA

dance majors, but several adult pro dancers as well, including Serguei Chtyrkov, who many local aficionados will recognize from his annual Nutcracker performances. Burns, who contributes choreography, dances as well. “I’m dancing a little bit, doing some semi–serious dancing and some silly dancing,” she says. “We’re using a huge mix of different techniques, but also we just want to show what you can do with dance. It doesn’t all have to be serious.” The film Sunday, Pina, is by Academy Award–winning director Wim Wenders and is a loving eulogy to the choreographer Pina Bausch. While the immediate object of the two events of “Pina with a Twist” is to raise funds to help bring in high–profile dance companies to the Savannah Dance Festival itself, Burns says event organizers share a larger mission of building the dance scene in Savannah at the grassroots level. “We hope to bring more professional dance to town, in order to create more professional dance in town,” she says. “A lot of times great dance

performances will come to town and they’re barely attended. The hope is to change that and it will sort of circle around, and people will go to see things out of town and love that, and then see performances in Savannah.” While technically this isn’t a Savannah Arts Academy production, the high school is contributing the space and some cast members. “They’ve been unbelievably supportive by giving us this space, otherwise the show wouldn’t be happening,” says Burns, who teaches classes in conjunction with the SAA dance program. “I’ve seen the dance program here grow so much, and it would be awesome if some day the people who graduate from here can then go into a company that’s also here,” she says. “So they won’t necessarily have to leave town to get a job.” cs Twist When: Sat. Sept. 22, 7 p.m. Where: Savannah Arts Academy, 500 Washington Ave. Cost: $15 adult, $10 student Info: Pina When: Sun. Sept. 23, at 2, 5 & 8 p.m. Where: Muse Arts Warehouse, 703 Louisville Rd.

Fall Arts Preview: Visual arts



Call them “the usual suspects” of Savannah’s cultural change movement. Around a table at the Sentient Bean are Molly Lieberman, the director of Loop It Up at the West Broad YMCA, Citizens Advocacy director Tom Kohler, and artist/activist Jerome Meadows. And though none of them would wear a sash denoting them as such, they are all indeed part of a recurring cabal that relentlessly works to cross boundaries and demolish old perceptions. Specifically, along with many others, these three have helped organize Journey to the Beloved Community, a series of art shows and events

inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of an all–inclusive, compassionate society. The journey began in July with Beth Mount’s vibrant story quilts and Lyn Bonham’s provocative photographs at the Jepson Center for the Arts; the show’s opening reception was a joyous affair that brought together people from all corners of the community. Mount returns next week with the three–day Art of Social Change conference, featuring a gallery talk with Bonham. The end of September also brings continues on p. 26

celebrity bartender: malcolm but ler

malcolm butler | the fiduciary group | savannah-born & raised

What drink will you be serving up this Thursday? I want to serve a spiked Arnold Palmer. I don’t know if such a thing exists, but we’re going to create it. Interesting choice! So, what’s your FAVORITE drink then? I am one that has diversified taste buds. My favorite currently is a vodka cranberry with club soda. No way, mine too! What are some of your other go-tos? One that I really like in the wintertime is Jack Daniels and Blenheim Ginger Ale. This is is a spicy ginger ale, and I’m telling you—ooh!—it’s really good with bourbon. That would certainly warm you up! Have you had any previous experience has a bartender? My last name is Butler. I’ve had plenty of experience. I’ve just never been paid for it. And would you consider yourself a savvy drinks master? I can tell you that the patrons will think I’m an excellent bartender; I’m usually very generous. You can be my bartender any day! So, let’s say you’re on a tropical island. You’re tired from a long day of golfing and just lounging on the beach. What drink is in your hand? A Mount Bay Rum and Tonic. Any closing thoughts? I presume I shouldn’t be wearing my coat and tie to this thing?

‘Team Ronald & Chris’: part of the concurrent ‘Eye to Eye’ show at Indigo Sky Community Gallery

forth the work of the folks now sitting at the table. On Thursday, Sept. 27, the kids of Loop It Up take center stage at the reception of I Am the Beloved Community: Story Quilts of Our Savannah, an unlikely fibers collaboration between Lieberman’s young charges from the YMCA and the Kayton Homes Boys & Girls Club, seniors at the Hudson Hill Golden Age Center and a group of English as a Second Language (ESL) SCAD students. Considering the disparate ages and backgrounds of the participants, the project’s quilting format was at once a practical technique and a telling metaphor. “With quilting, you have all of these pieces, and you never know how they’re going to appear, just a hunch that they’ll work well together,” says Lieberman.  “As we were getting everyone together from these different places, it seemed like a clear artistic reference to the Beloved Community.” While the intent behind the project was to provide a space to explore the differences in the participants’ lives, she was surprised how their similarities quickly became the focus. “It was especially a big deal when we brought in the international students. Most of them had just come to Savannah the week before for their first quarter at SCAD from China and Mexico and Bosnia. And our Savannah is not the Savannah that someone who moves here for SCAD sees right away,” confides Lieberman, referring to the housing projects surrounding the West Broad YMCA. “Initially, their role was to just come document and take photos, but the kids were talking, the seniors were talking, and they wanted to tell how they related to this stuff, too.” The result of many afternoons of drawing and cutting and storytelling are 11 dynamic, multi–hued quilts, as well as several framed drawings depicting the brainstorming sessions. The ESL students also kept a blog of photos and writings throughout the process, compiled into a book that will be available at the reception. The quilts will hang until Dec. 16. For Lieberman, the showing of the quilts at the Jepson—a place where many of the project’s artists have never set foot—validates the uniting effect of programs like Loop It Up on Savannah’s cultural landscape. Back in 2008, as a fiber studies student at SCAD, she had no idea she’d become so invested in fostering change when she heard about what was then a volunteer opportunity to keep little hands busy after school at the West Broad YMCA. “It sounded like something I wanted continues on p. 28

to do,” says the native Northeasterner. “It turned out to be exactly what I wanted to do.” After the 5 p.m. reception at the Jepson, authors Tom Kohler and Susan Earl will stage a reading of their paean to social change, Waddie Welcome and the Beloved Community. The story of Waddie Welcome, an adored Savannah citizen who made grand strides as a disabled rights activist despite being confined to a wheelchair his entire life, exemplifies

what a person can achieve when support, non–judgment and everyday love abound. Welcome’s legacy lives on in the pairs of people put together by Kohler through Citizens Advocacy as well as what Kohler calls “the continuing conversation about the art of social change.” The celebration of Beloved Community continues the following evening, Friday, Sept. 28, at Indigo Sky Gallery on the east end of the city. Eye to Eye: The Making of We marshals

the work of five heralded local artists, each who spent time observing a Citizen Advocacy relationship and interpreted their impressions through a variety of media. “This is not your standard works on the wall–type of show,” says Indigo Sky director and collage artist Jerome Meadows, who has steadfastly advocated for the revitalization of Waters Avenue. “This is an installation of a mixture of artistic methods—in some cases

things will be suspended from the ceiling, some will be audio/visual, there’s a slideshow—it’s going to give a holistic sense of what the artists have discovered about the dynamics between these teams of advocates and proteges.” Included in Eye to Eye are works by encaustic painter Christine Sajecki, photographer Jerry Harris, poet and painter Suzanne Jackson, sculptor Veronica Cabrera and Meadows’ own mixed media. While the nature of the

of the needle. The teams for the most part have not seen what the artists have been creating. Once we’re in the gallery together, that’s a rite of passage. This is the culmination. We’ll be standing there wondering, how do we move forward?” That’s the big question for these movers and shakers of community activism. Lieberman will continue her work with Loop It Up, allying with other community centers and inviting others to go through the collaborative art process, and Meadows and Kohler will keep on with their partnerships and projects. All three agree that the advancement of a local and global Beloved

Community must be “organic, spontaneous and natural,” a balm for the political divisiveness that’s raging in the atmosphere these days. “Cultural change doesn’t happen at that level anyway,” declares Kohler. “Most of it happens inside people’s hearts. If you can get something happening inside people’s hearts, then you begin to see it in people’s minds and actions.” As that happens, expect to see many more join the line–up of Savannah’s “usual suspects.” CS

artistic process is to create alone in a studio, Meadows admits that emotional attachments were formed as the artists spent time with their subjects. “This was all very hands–on and intimate, we ate lunches together, putt–putt golf… it was in–depth, involved,” he says. “We as artists became so connected to a team, and in some cases the team so enthralled by the artist. It’s gotten personal as we’ve observed the connections within the beloved community that make it beloved.” Meadows alludes a possible “separation anxiety” now that the project is almost over. “We’re about to go through the eye

Jean-Michel Cousteau is the eldest son of pioneering oceanographer Jacques-Yves Cousteau

special guest at this year’s Gray’s Reef Ocean Film Festival, Sept. 20–23. The four days include screenings, lectures and environmental panel discussions, all focused on the marine environment — what’s great about it, and what’s wrong with it (hint: Humans are responsible). Cousteau, who was a co–producer of the Undersea World of Jacques–Yves Cousteau series more than 40 years ago, will talk and show a selection of his films, including a just–finished biography of his father. If you had one minute to speak to the world right now, what would your message be?

Not so long ago, Jean–Michel Cousteau came to Savannah to film at Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary, which is about 17 miles off the coast of Sapelo Island. “We were unpacking our truck, our diving equipment and cinematography equipment,” says the legendary underwater documentary–maker, the eldest son of pioneering ecologist Jacques–Yves Cousteau. “And one gentleman walked by and asked my team, what are you doing? We told him, ‘We are doing a show on the marine sanctuary.’

“And the guy looked at us and said ‘I didn’t know that the Marines had a sanctuary.’” At that moment, Cousteau says, it became crystal clear that education must be a major component of whatever it takes to get the hurting oceans saved. “That,” he explains, “was a kick in the butt.” The native Frenchman, 74, is the

Jean–Michel Cousteau: If you protect the ocean, you protect yourself. It’s very simple: No water, no life. Every human being, every animal, every plant, whether it’s above water or below water, is completely dependent on water. And the quality of that water is linked to the quality of life. Including our lives. And if you live anywhere along a coastline, people have a tendency to take it for granted. If you live away from the coastline, way inland, most people do not make the connection between the glass of water they drink, which comes from the ocean, or that when they go skiing, they’re skiing on the ocean. All that water is part of a one–water cycle. Ice and snow melts, it makes

little streams, which go into rivers which go to the ocean. It evaporates, and creates clouds. Those clouds are being moved with weather, with the wind, and it goes right back on top of that mountain, perfectly clean. And people? Jean–Michel Cousteau: Where we come into the picture is in between. We use that water system as a universal sewer, and as a garbage can. And garbage is something we’re very sensitive to because we can see it. But what we don’t see, we don’t relate to. Which are chemicals and heavy metals, and those are now affecting a lot of the marine life, including the marine life that we capture and put on our plates, to feed ourselves. As a result of that, we’re finding out a lot of people are being affected. To the point where you have problems with attention spans in children, thyroid problems, cancer rates, the sperm count of males is going way down. Young mothers wanting to be pregnant having much difficult time. All of that comes from mis–management of the water system. We didn’t know before. I didn’t know when I was a kid. Today, we know. So now we know what needs to be done, and we can do it, and that’s why I think this country and other countries have a very important role to play. And the fact that

Is the process reversible? Jean–Michel Cousteau: Well, if I didn’t believe that we can do something about it, I wouldn’t be speaking to you today. Sometimes I feel a little bit discouraged, but I look at it through the eyes of a 5–year–old, 10–year–old, and am I gonna let them down? No. Absolutely not. And that re–charges my batteries and I go back to work. We need to reach the young people, the future decision–makers. They will make better decisions. I’m not talking about the climate change which has happened long before we showed up on the planet. Today, our responsibility is that we are accelerating the process, and that has dramatic consequences because many species cannot adapt to the fast change. But if we can slow our impact, we can go back to the natural process. And it’s a big job. How do you do that through filmmaking? Are we just talking about education? Jean–Michel Cousteau: Ocean Futures Society, which I created after my father passed away, to honor his philosophy, we are doing three things which are all having to do with communication. We continue doing television programs, which is now spreading gigantically over the Internet. That’s mass exposure, which is what my dad was doing — and in those days, the choices were pretty limited. You had five, 10 television channels. It is pretty superficial, but at least it shows you the beauty of the ocean. It shows you some of the problems, and how we are connected to it. The second thing is education. We have programs called Ambassador of the Environment, which are reaching younger people. We have it in more and more places, in hotels, on an island, on a cruise ship and so on. We also have, as part of the education program, sustainable coral reefs. In other words, we provide different countries with the educational material that can be put in the hands of teachers and children. All of French Polynesia, the British Virgin Islands, American Samoa, all of these places are now sharing that information.

The third communication system that we use in Ocean Futures Society is diplomacy. Never point a finger, always try to have a dialogue, whether it’s with industrial representatives or government representatives. Let’s not get into politics, it doesn’t matter. As long as you can sit down with those people and have a chance to express yourself and reach the heart. And when you reach the heart, all the defense mechanism goes away. I can tell you, I would have given up a long time ago if I didn’t believe it worked. CS

James Dean doesn’t have suburbia on his mind in Rebel Without a Cause

horror screenings on Friday nights. Here’s George Romero’s pioneering zombie apocalypse classic in all its bloody glory.


Oct. 7, Muse Arts Warehouse . Based on true events, Compliance is a disturbing drama about a prank caller (Pat Healy) who convinces a fast– food manager (Ann Dowd) that one of her employees is a thief, with disastrous results. The controversial film premiered at Sundance last January.


Sept. 29. Lucas Theatre. Alfred Hitchcock’s World War II espionage tale re–teams two of the stars of Casablanca – Ingrid Bergman and Claude Rains – and the leading men to end all leading men, Cary Grant.

Blotter All cases from recent Savannah/ Chatham Police Dept. incident reports

Meth makes it to Ardsley Six people have been arrested in connection with a meth lab at 730 E. 50th St. in Ardsley Park.

A citizen called police after observing suspicious activity. Police responded to the possible burglary in progress and surrounded the residence. Within minutes, three people were in custody. Police entered the house to check for any additional persons at which time police observed what they believed to be a methamphetamine lab inside. Police maintained a perimeter around the residence and contacted the Chatham–Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT). CNT agents identified the three persons found inside the house as 30–year–old Robert Trichie, 31–year–old Zefani Moss and 32–year–old Darien Pringle, all of Savannah. Based on the initial meth

lab finding, CNT Agents charged all three persons with Manufacturing Methamphetamine and Possession of a Controlled Substance within 1,000 feet of a School. CNT Agents applied for a subsequent search warrant. A week earlier CNT agents had already become acquainted with the same house residence following complaints from neighbors concerning possible drug sales there. On Friday, September 7, 2012 CNT Agents made contact with the homeowner, 30– year–old Eric Strong and a roommate, 35–year–old Christopher Hewitt, both of Savannah. Agents conducted a search of the residence resulting in the seizure of a non–active methamphetamine lab. At the time of this incident, both Strong and Hewitt were wanted by the Chatham County Sheriff ’s Office on Probation Violation charges. Both Strong and Hewitt were arrested on the outstanding warrants and not charged with any drug related charges at that time. Strong was expect to be charged

How many ice cubes would it take to put out the sun? I am five, and have been wondering about this for almost half my life now. —Rei Mordue You’re one articulate five-year-old, Rei, and plainly your mum is also no dummy. Let’s clear up some misconceptions. First, and you’ll excuse me if this seems picky, ice cubes have never been the firefighting methodology of choice. Second and more important, technically the sun isn’t on fire. What you’ve got up there is a nuclear furnace. Having started out as a huge cloud of gas and dust, the sun was condensed by gravity into a ball, its temperature rising steadily in the process. After the summer we just had, you may think you know hot. You don’t. When a gas-and-dust ball gets up to about 10 million degrees Celsius, nuclear fusion begins. That’s hot. During fusion, hydrogen atoms combine under enormous pressure and temperature to make helium and release energy in the form of heat, light, high-energy radiation, neutrinos— always with the neutrinos, the crumbs of the universe— and other miscellaneous particles. Long story short, there’s no fire in the usual sense. In fact, if you were somehow to throw an ice cube into the sun, the effect would be the opposite of what

twice the volume of the sun’s core. Its size alone might be enough to tear the sun apart—but again, only temporarily. Gravity would consolidate the solar fragments, the temperature would rise, and the thing would re-ignite like one of those trick birthday candles. OK, so how might one permanently extinguish the sun? A nearby black hole could tear the sun apart and swallow it, as was witnessed recently by astronomers in a cataclysm so powerful it was detected 2.7 billion light-years away. It’s also possible that collision with enough non-fusible material, such as a mass of nickel-iron asteroids, could dissipate the nuclear fire and almost certainly lead to formation of a black hole. One last thing. The cosmic ice cube posited above would have one-third the mass of the sun. Given enough time to compact itself, it would eventually heat to the point of fusion and become its own little sun. A mere 0.08 solar masses is required for this purpose. So, Rei, when you’re packing snowballs this winter? Don’t make ‘em too big. cs By cecil adams

you’re hoping. First the ice would quickly melt and turn to steam. After heating to over 5,000 degrees Celsius the steam would turn into plasma, meaning the hydrogen and oxygen atoms would fly apart and shed their electrons. The hydrogen would serve as more fuel for the nuclear reaction, and given the right conditions so would the oxygen. Another nontrivial problem is how you’d get the ice to the sun without having it melt. Comets, composed of ice, plunge sunward once in a while, but rarely arrive intact. Last summer, for example, comet C/2011 N3, fairly hefty at 132 million pounds, got within about 60,000 miles of the solar surface and vaporized completely. That’s not to say you couldn’t theoretically douse the sun with ice cubes. Suppose you could teleport a monumental quantity of ice into the heart of the sun. The sun’s core provides almost all the nuclear fusion that powers it, and bubbles along at about 15.7 million degrees Celsius. Bringing that temperature down below 10 million degrees might halt fusion briefly. Gravity pulling everything together is what led to all that heat in the first place, and that’s not going away. So after the initial temperature drop and a period of reorganization, fusion would start up again—this time with even more hydrogen to burn. But we’ll ignore that for now. How much ice would you need? It’s tricky, since the laws of Newtonian physics don’t apply in the heart of a star. Making certain bold assumptions, my assistant Una determined that chilling the sun’s core to below 10 million degrees would require an ice cube 562,000 miles on a side. If you were planning on using standard-sized cubes from your kitchen freezer, you’d need about 45 nonillion of them. That’s 45 followed by 30 zeroes. Anyway, it’s a lot of ice, more than

Among the students featured in Popular Science’s September list of young inventors was Fabian Fernandez-Han, 14, of Conroe, Texas, who invented a bicycle that, when pedaled, also desalinates seawater (via reverse osmosis) from replaceable 15-gallon canisters. One hour of pedaling produces 20 gallons of drinkable water. Jack Andraka, 15, from Maryland, created a test for pancreatic cancer that is demonstrably much faster and more accurate than current diagnostics (using carbon nanotubes that can be specially activated by applications of the signature pancreatic-cancer protein, Mesothelin).

We’re From Here weaves influences from all over the place, and the album’s soulful take on traditional and non–traditional acoustic music is the result of a vagabond lifestyle, having spent a year on the road together, just the two of them and their instruments, in a little car. They’re from everywhere. “We went to 29 different states, we played 125 shows, and we met a ton of different people,” explains Erin Frisby, whose middle name happens to be Shevaughn. “We noticed that

people really responded to our music in a way ... it was new music they’d never heard before, but there was something really familiar about it.” Yuma Wray is Chris Stelloh. Both musicians are proficient on several instruments, and the Wormhole bandstand at this week’s show will be covered with guitars, mandolins, banjos and the like. An a piano.

Frisby, born into an Arkansan musical family, started singing the high stuff, folk and gospel, as a child. She grew up in New Orleans, studied opera and sang with rock ‘n’ roll bands, and the resulting seasoned alto has a world– weary and strongly emotional feel. She is, to be sure, a great singer.

The songs, she explains, changed a lot as they road–tested them in each new town. “It’s a complex feeling, and I think that had a lot to do with the intensity of travel,” Frisby says. “It’s kind of lonely, but it’s exciting at the same time.” The music, she adds, “also has sort of a long–distance element of mine and Chris’ musical journey, throughout our entire life, tied into it. A lot of the music we grew up with, a lot of the influences that we pull from, are types of American music that are inextricably linked to our identity.” Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray perform at the Wormhole Wednesday, Sept. 19.

We all talk a lot about Savannah’s music community, which is a tightly knit as they come. Everybody helps everyone else. The genre– splitting collaborations get the most attention, of course — ever seen the Train Wrecks doing hip hop night at the Jinx with Basik Lee and Dope Sandwich? Happens all the time. Among metal, punk and hardcore players, there is a particularly viscous stream of shared blood. Guitarists, bass players and drummers routinely shift from one band to another, and in times of crucial need — say, one band’s lead player can’t make a gig — inevitably someone from another group will step up and sit in. This week sees the release of a seven–inch slab of vinyl split between two bands from Savannah’s fraternal hardcore community. Black Tusk, of course, has been touring the world behind the acclaimed Relapse Records album Set the Dial. They’ve got two new songs on the record; the other two are by Dead Yet?, a shorter–lived Savannah band with no less passion for the power of the angry musical throb. “Those guys are three of our best friends,” says Dead Yet? bassist Ben Maher of Black Tusk. “We thought it’d be a fun idea to cover each other’s songs.

Good time at Sparetime

My first step into Sparetime left me somewhat taken aback by the austerity of the place. Considering its rep as the city’s premiere craft cocktail establishment, my expectations ran to walls of art and comfy chairs. Instead, I found myself pondering the vibe perched on the edge of a notthat-comfortable bar stool. Then it hit me like a 106–proof whiskey. It’s the perfect blank canvas to encourage conversation. The right style in which to enjoy the handcrafted and labor intensive drinks. The zone where music matters — without fluff and facade. Well into my first drink — a concoction of cantaloupe, Boyd & Blair vodka and a hint of mint — I realized the house tunes come from a turntable and a vinyl collection that requires more storage than the bar’s glassware. Well–played nuance, Sparetime. Well–played. My bartender Andy plays oboe with the symphony. Besides choosing great tunes for the small Monday night crowd, he also knows his liquor. He quickly discerned my lust for small-batch whiskey and poured a couple of tastes. Tonight however, was a clear liquor night for me. I groove on gins the way I relish a long B.B. King riff. I was drawn to the Ka–Kaw — featuring a housemade flavored gin, homemade tonic and lemon bitters that were, yes, made in–house. Purists would find nothing in this cocktail resembling gin and tonic. Again, I was shocked – but that’s the nature of Sparetime. I settled in and rode this Collins glass to the bottom – refreshing, fresh and courageous for breaking out of the Tanqueray box. The sight of a Neapolitan–style pizza caught my eye and I ordered one topped with marinara, fontina, Spanish chorizo, red chiles. This may well be the best little pie in town. The small menu allows dishes to be crafted and cooked to order, meaning mine arrived ridiculously hot from the oven and brimming with fresh flavors. Originally, I planned on taking half of it home. I didn’t – I ate the whole thing. Aah, but don’t fret for me. I washed

Did someone say marinara, fontina, chorizo and red chile Neapolitan pizza?

it down with yet another cocktail: a gin sling dosed with lovingly made St. George gin. This very small California distiller is known for extracting made flavors for its family of gin, vodka and absinthe. Mango and other ingredients made for a remarkably smooth companion to my spicy little pizza. Happy hour prices for these specialty cocktails are great values. Non– drinker in your party? No sweat, there are plenty of fresh mocktails to enjoy. The mood is relaxed and easy. Upstairs is often home to live music or DJs — all of which you can find info on at 36 MLK Jr. Blvd.

Coffee, grapes and hops

Landmark coffeehouse The Sentient Bean on the south end of Forsyth Park is a mecca for Fair Trade and organic coffees, music and art. Now, the popular gathering spot is offering a hand–selected menu of craft beers and wines. Count on an evolving list that is off the beaten path relative to other beer bars. I am a bit put off by the wine descriptions on the website, especially saying that Viognier is “comparable to a Riesling.” Still, I applaud the new options. 13 E. Park St.

Trouble with the Curve; The Master

Fall films worth falling for Ten notable movie releases between now and the holiday season

by Matt Brunson |

I’ll go ahead and say it: More great movies are being released this fall than perhaps during any other period in film history. That’s a bold statement, but I’m prepared to back it up. To wit: Raiders of the Lost Ark is being released Sept. 18. Goldfinger and other James Bond titles come out Sept. 25, as do numerous Alfred Hitchcock classics (including Psycho and Vertigo). A slew of horror staples (Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolf Man, etc.) on Oct. 2; E.T. The Extra– Terrestrial on Oct. 9; more Hitchcock that same day; Blade Runner on Oct. 23; the list goes on and on. To clarify, these are all Blu–ray releases. Hey, I never specified theatrical releases in my grandiloquent opening. But since you asked, let’s take a look, shall we? As is often the case this time of year – that roughly two–month

window between summer blockbusters and year–end holiday fare – the pickings are mighty slim. September offers a fifth Resident Evil flick (Resident Evil: Retribution, Sept. 14) and a Nicolas Cage thriller (Stolen, Sept. 14) that looks so similar (even in title) to Taken that Liam Neeson should beat down Cage. Speaking of Taken, October opens with that exciting film’s dubious sequel (Taken 2, Oct. 5) and ends with two even more dubious sequels (Paranormal Activity 4, Oct. 19; Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, Oct. 26). So is there anything worth a damn? Sure thing. Admittedly, I had to struggle to fill out the list, but here

are 10 films (listed chronologically) that might prove to be winners. Trouble with the Curve. Clint Eastwood stated that Gran Torino would be his last on–screen appearance and that he would solely focus on directing, yet his new film finds him once again in front of the camera while somebody else (his frequent producer, Robert Lorenz) is sitting in the director’s chair. That’s fine with me: He should excel in the role of an Atlanta Braves scout who’s about to be out to pasture by the home office. Before that happens, he and his estranged daughter (Amy Adams) head to North Carolina for what might be his final assignment. If nothing else, being out publicizing this film should keep Clint from talking to empty chairs for a while. (Sept. 21) The Master. Writer–director Paul continues on p. 50

OPENING SEPT. 21: Dredd End of Watch House at the End of the Street Trouble With the Curve Unconditional


In these United States of America, it may be all about The Avengers and Avatar and Armageddon, but in the rest of the world, where subtitles aren’t viewed as a national threat but as a fact of life, there’s also been room for The Intouchables on the all–time box office champs list. A global word–of–mouth smash, this French seriocomedy has earned an astonishing $350 million, a hefty figure that has allowed it to become the highest grossing non–English–language film in history. That such a slender but admittedly agreeable movie would be the one to hold such a distinguished title seems a tad disheartening, considering all of the truly great foreign flicks that have come before it. Then again, Americans spent that same amount to go see Transformers: Dark of the Moon, so who am I – or any other stateside citizen – to criticize? It’s easy to see the feel–good appeal of The Intouchables (simply Intouchables in France), which currently ranks #80 on IMDb’s Top 250 list (just above, uh, Kurosawa’s landmark Rashomon). Based on a true story, it centers on the relationship between Philippe (Francois Cluzet), a millionaire who’s been a quadriplegic ever since a

paragliding accident, and his caretaker Driss (Omar Sy), an ex–con from the projects who reluctantly accepts the position even though he had planned on continuing to collect those welfare checks. Philippe is cultured, reserved, but not without a sense of humor; Driss is boisterous, crude, and willing to joke about anything. Philippe appreciates that Driss doesn’t pity him – if anything, Driss goes out of his way to mock his employer’s immobile condition, his love for the arts, and his taste in music (he asserts that Bach was an “18th century Barry White”) – and it’s not long before the men come to genuinely care for each other. There’s been some criticism regarding the decision of writer– directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano to turn Driss into a black man (something he wasn’t in real life), but I’m inclined to think that choice was made in order to cast the popular comedian Omar Sy in the role. Still, the film’s examination of class differences is often

heavy–handed and condescending – when Driss, who shares a tiny bathroom in his slum home with a half–dozen family members, first spots the luxurious bathroom that will be his and his alone in Philippe’s house, did we really need to hear Franz Schubert’s “Ave Maria” playing in the background? Some plotting issues also threaten to undermine the goodwill generated by both the film and its characters. At one point, Philippe elects to send Driss back to the projects to tend to his family, a decision that makes no sense considering Philippe’s enormous wealth (he couldn’t have helped the family himself?) and the dead–end options available to Driss there. (If this vignette was based on fact, the real–life Philippe suddenly becomes a lot less appealing, though of course here his decision is framed as a noble one.) Thankfully, the superb lead performances hold everything together. Initially, Cluzet (known to U.S. art–house audiences for continues on p. 52

the hit thriller Tell No One) seems to have the more difficult role, since he can only move from the neck up – his stillness requires as much attention to detail as would, say, a performer essaying the role of an ice skater. But over the course of the picture, it’s Sy who snags MVP honors (indeed, he beat Cluzet for France’s Best Actor Cesar Award). He’s strong in the dramatic moments, but he’s even better when his character is allowed to cut loose and display a skewered joie de vivre. He rises to the top even when the script tries to hold him down.



It’s difficult to feel sorry for pampered Hollywood stars who make more money in an hour than most of us make in our lifetimes, but there is a pang of pity whenever a formidable talent is reduced to appearing in dreck like this. Sigourney Weaver, who last year suffered the indignity of backing up Taylor Lautner, for God’s sake, in the daft Abduction, now finds herself essaying the role of the villain in another action flick that’s nearly as dopey. As the duplicitous CIA agent Jean Carrack, she squares off against Will Shaw (Henry Cavill), who’s after a briefcase that Carrack swiped from Middle Eastern spies (we never learn the contents of the briefcase, but don’t expect a denouement worthy of Kiss Me Deadly or Pulp Fiction). The ruffians are holding Will’s family hostage, and they’ll kill the clan unless the briefcase is returned to them. Carrack isn’t about to let that happen, and with the help of her weaponry and her vehicle, she seemingly destroys half of Madrid to achieve her goal. It’s hard to tell whether Weaver is patterning her performance after Schwarzenegger’s taciturn turn in The Terminator or if she’s merely embarrassed by the whole thing, but either way, she’s woefully ineffectual. Cavill will be playing Superman in the upcoming Man of Steel, but based on his charisma–free work here, he appears to be no Christopher Reeve – or Brandon Routh, for that matter. As for the film itself, its dialogue is dull, its characters even more so, and its action sequences pack all the excitement of a Tide commercial. It seeks to emulate the Bourne films but merely ends up stillborn.



For approximately a quarter–century, we’ve been witnessing a remarkable renaissance in the animation field, blessed with a number of toon flicks that have constantly tried to up the ante in regard to more complex storylines, richer character development and, of course, revolutionary graphics: Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Beauty and the Beast, Toy Story, Chicken Run and Spirited Away all managed to introduce viewers to something they hadn’t quite experienced before. Pixar/Disney’s Oscar– winning Finding Nemo, which has been theatrically re–released in 3–D on the eve of its Blu–ray debut, comes close to such touchstone status only in one respect: Its animation is truly stunning, awash (pun intended) in a dazzling array of colors and creating the impression of a living, breathing sea. For all its visual splendor and adult–oriented gags (nods to Psycho, Jaws and The Shining are included), Finding Nemo falls short of most Pixar films primarily because many of its characters lack depth. Unlike, say, Toy Story, where each player is beautifully delineated, too many here seem more like “types” than unique individuals. Still, it’s downright curmudgeonly to remain focused on the negatives when the rest of the picture is saturated with invention and wit. With Pixar’s hot streak ending with Cars 2, this critical and commercial smash serves as a reminder that things have generally gone swimmingly for a company that continues to set the high watermark in animated entertainment.



Fully aware of the blasphemous nature of this statement, I nevertheless will go on record as acknowledging that I’ve always felt John Carpenter was better as a composer than as either a writer or director. His excellent scores for (among others) Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween and Escape from New York are highly effective in their relative simplicity, and it’s impossible not to respond to their hypnotic rhythms. With writer– director–composer Benh Zeitlin, it’s too early to make such a call, given that Beasts of the Southern Wild

marks his feature–film debut in all three capacities. Admittedly, I left the screening raving about the score he co–crafted with Dan Romer, but that’s not meant to take away from the lyrical script he penned with Lucy Alibar or his masterful direction of this unique movie. Belonging under the same umbrella of “magical realism” that also informed works as diverse as Amelie, Like Water for Chocolate and The Tin Drum, this new picture centers on 6– year–old Hushpuppy (Quvenzhane Wallis), a headstrong girl from the Louisiana bayou. With her mother long absent from the scene, she lives in a ramshackle home next to that of her father Wink (Dwight Henry), a man whose often harsh manner with his daughter isn’t child abuse as much as an extreme – and, given the surroundings, usually necessary – form of tough love. The poor people who populate this community are rich in spirit, so after a brutal storm (obviously Katrina) decimates the area, the survivors elect to engage in a celebration replete with booze and seafood. But Wink, who has already been succumbing to a mysterious ailment, shows no signs of getting better, and Hushpuppy’s angst over his condition is compounded by the fact that the melting polar ice caps have released an army of long–extinct aurochs (presented by this film as killer cattle) which is inexorably marching toward Hushpuppy’s terrain. This is a story of survival, of recognizing and respecting the rules of the natural world. It’s also highly imaginative, doubtless able to charge young minds more than any assembly–line Hasbro adaptation.

Premium Rush


A movie built around a bicycle messenger is a risky venture – as an adrenaline–pumper, it sounds about as promising as Driving Miss Daisy – but writer–director David Koepp invests in our need for speed right from the first frame. Employing stylish graphics and a muscular shooting style, he immediately thrusts us into the story of Wilee (Joseph Gordon–Levitt), a New York City bike messenger who gets high off his breakneck job. Enter Bobby Monday (Michael Shannon), a corrupt cop who simply must obtain what’s inside the envelope that Wilee is presently

carrying to an unassuming shop in Chinatown. Since most of Bobby’s actions are illegal, he’s forced to provide a fake name whenever anybody asks him to identify himself. So he goes with Forrest J Ackerman. The late, great Ackerman – a childhood hero, it should be stated – was the editor of the influential magazine Famous Monsters of Filmland, and it’s just the sort of pop–culture factoid one can expect from Koepp, whose previous credits as a screenwriter include such exciting franchise–starters as Jurassic Park, Spider–Man and Mission: Impossible. But Koepp (sharing scripting duties here with John Kamps) has more on his mind than in–joke asides. Despite its A–list credentials, Premium Rush feels like a B–movie beauty, smaller in scale than its summer brethren yet outclassing most of them with giddy irreverence. Gordon–Levitt again demonstrates that he’s one of Young Hollywood’s best hopes, Shannon is terrific as a dirty cop whose quirky sense of humor remains intact even as his desperation mounts, and rising actresses Dania Ramirez and Jamie Chung excel.



A marginal improvement over the first Expendables romp, this sequel offers expanded roles for Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger (whose appearances in the first film amounted to nothing more than cameos), casts another ‘80s action star as the villain (Jean–Claude Van Damme as ... groan ... Jean Vilain), and, perhaps in a dubious attempt to expand the audience beyond action–crazed young males, adds group newcomers in the form of a pinup heartthrob (The Hunger Games’ Liam Hemsworth) and a kick–ass woman (Nan Yu). The team’s mission is twofold: Stop Vilain from using his plutonium supply to conquer the world and exact their revenge on said villain for murdering one of their own. As the team leader and his right– hand man, Stallone and Jason Statham awkwardly exchange male– bonding barbs. One of the franchise stars appears only at the beginning, leaving audiences to wonder if he was downed by pneumonia for the rest of the shoot.


The stop–motion animated feature ParaNorman arrives courtesy of the same production company responsible for Coraline and Corpse Bride, so parents had best not take their small fry to the theater expecting to see talking cars or dancing penguins or anything else that would send the wee ones off to Dreamland with a smile on their face and a teddy bear in their arms. Instead, this PG–rated attraction is open season on any child who’s still afraid of the dark. Everyone else, though, can expect a good time from this imaginatively designed and sharply scripted tale about young Norman (voiced by The Road’s Kodi Smit–McPhee), a sensitive boy who, like Haley Joel Osment, sees dead people. This ability makes him the freak of his town, and only the equally lonely Neil (Tucker Albrizzi), the butt of endless fat jokes, wants to be his friend. But when Norman’s estranged uncle (John Goodman) warns him that Blithe Hollow will soon be destroyed by a centuries–old witch’s curse, it’s up to Norman and Neil to uncover the witch’s secret, fend off shuffling zombies, and prevent the panicky townspeople from obliterating their own community.

The Campaign


Set entirely in North Carolina but filmed entirely in Louisiana, this comedy casts Will Ferrell as Democratic congressman Cam Brady, a four–term incumbent who expects to waltz unopposed to a fifth term. But an adulterous fling has left him vulnerable, leading the powerful kingmakers the Motch brothers (John Lithgow and Dan Aykroyd) to back a challenger who could potentially win the district and thereby allow the Motches to build a Chinese sweat shop on U.S. soil. They choose Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), a naive and mincing nobody. The Republican Marty hopes to win so he can genuinely serve his constituents, but it’s an uphill battle considering Cam’s experience on the campaign trail. As the dapper yet duplicitous Cam Brady, Ferrell is allowed one or two of his patented freak–out scenes but for the most part keeps his over–the–top shtick in check. Yet the real surprise

is Galifianakis, who allows us to also see the man behind the public front: a sweet, soft–spoken simpleton with a penchant for loud, tacky shirts and calendars featuring animals dressed like humans.



Its sole, cynical purpose is to keep a franchise on life support so as to generate a few more box office dollars before the inevitable flatline. Fortunately, Tony Gilroy, who scripted the Matt Damon Bournes, has remained with the project – he’s now writer and director – and his continued involvement at least insures some sort of narrative cohesion. In between scenes introducing us to the character of covert operative Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), there’s much talk regarding the concurrent actions of Bourne himself. The action sequences, a vivid draw in the earlier Bourne films, run hot and cold.

Osteoarthritis Educational Seminar


(March 21–April 19) For every trillion dollars the U.S. government spends on the military, it creates about 11,000 jobs. That same expenditure, if directed toward education, creates 27,000 jobs. Personally, I’d rather have the taxes I pay go to teachers than soldiers –– especially in light of the fact that the U.S. spends almost as much money on its military as all the other nations in the world combined spend on theirs. I suggest that in the coming months you make a metaphorically similar move, Aries. Devote more of your time and energy and resources to learning, and less to fighting. Ironically, doing that will ultimately diminish the fighting you have to do. As you get more training and wisdom, you’ll become more skilled at avoiding unnecessary conflicts.


(April 20–May 20) Now is an excellent time to cull, prune, and winnow. I urge you to look for opportunities to pare down and refine. On the other hand, don’t go too far. Be careful that you don’t truncate, desecrate, or annihilate. It’s not an easy assignment, Taurus. You will have to be skeptical about any temptation you might have to go overboard with your skepticism. You will have to be cautious not to allow your judicious discernment to devolve into destructive distrust.


(May 21–June 20) Why did people start drinking coffee? Who figured out that roasting and boiling the bitter beans of a certain shrub produced a stimulating beverage? Historians don’t know for sure. One old tale proposes that a ninth–century Ethiopian shepherd discovered the secret. After his goats nibbled on the beans of the coffee bush, they danced and cavorted with unnatural vigor. I urge you to be as alert and watchful as that shepherd, Gemini. A new source of vibrant energy may soon be revealed to you, perhaps in an unexpected way.


(June 21–July 22) “Hello Dear One: My name is Lorita. I am a beautiful heartfelt woman from Libya. I was browsing online through the long night when I came across your shiny

dark power, and now I must tell you that I am quite sure you and I can circle together like sun and moon. It would give me great bliss for us to link up and make a tender story together. I await your reply so I can give you my secret sweetness. – Your Surprise Soulmate.” Dear Soulmate: Thank you for your warm inquiry. However, I must turn you down. Because I was born under the sign of Cancer the Crab, I have to be very careful to maintain proper boundaries; I can’t allow myself to be wide open to every extravagant invitation I get, especially from people I don’t know well. That’s especially true these days. We Crabs need to be extra discriminating about what influences we allow into our spheres.

and can lead to depression and malaise. But medical researchers in the West have come to the exact opposite conclusion: The more climaxes men have, the better. According to them, frequent sex even promotes youthfulness and longevity. So who to believe? Here’s what I think: Every man should find out for himself by conducting his own experiments. As a general rule, I recommend the empirical approach for many other questions as well –– and especially right now for Libran people of all genders. Rather than trusting anyone’s theories about anything, find out for yourself.


(Oct. 23–Nov. 21)

Questions and more questions! Will the monkey on your back jump off, at least for a while? Will the sign of the zodiac that you understand least become an X–factor in the unfolding plot? Will a cute distraction launch you on what seems to be a wild goose chase –– until it leads you to a clue you didn’t even know you were looking for? Will a tryst in an unsacred space result in an odd boost to your long–term fortunes? The answers to riddles like these will be headed your way in the coming weeks. You’re at the beginning of a phase that will specialize in alluring twists and brain–teasing turns.

The 19th–century Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen was an iconoclast who relished exposing the hypocrisy and shallowness of conventional morality. While working on one of his plays, he kept a pet scorpion in an empty beer glass on his desk. “Now and again,” he testified, “when the creature was wilting, I would drop into the glass a piece of fruit, which it would seize upon in a frenzy and inject with its poison. It would then revive. Are not we poets like that?” Keep these details in mind during the coming weeks, Scorpio. You will probably have some venom that needs to be expelled. I hope you’ll do it like Ibsen writing his brilliantly scathing plays or the scorpion stinging some fruit.



Want to submit a letter to the editor of a major newspaper? The odds of you getting published in the influential Washington Post are almost three times as great as in the super–influential New York Times. The Post has a much smaller circulation, so your thoughts there won’t have as wide an impact. But you will still be read by many people. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you’re in a phase when you should be quite content to shoot for a spot in the Post. Please apply that same principle to everything you do.

“There is nothing more difficult for a truly creative painter than to paint a rose,” said French artist Henri Matisse, “because before he can do so he has first to forget all the roses that were ever painted.” I’d love to expand this principle so that it applies to everything you do in the coming week. Whatever adventures you seek, Sagittarius, prepare for them by forgetting all the adventures you have ever had. That way you will unleash the fullness of the fun and excitement you deserve.


(July 23–Aug. 22)

(Aug. 23–Sept. 22)


(Sept. 23–Oct. 22) According to the Asian spiritual traditions of Tantra and Taoism, it’s unhealthy for a man to have too many ejaculatory orgasms. Doing so depletes his vital energy,

(Nov. 22–Dec. 21)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22–Jan. 19)

Where do you belong? Not where you used to belong and not where you will belong in the future, but where do you belong right now? The answer to that question might have been murky lately, but the time is ripe to get clear. To identify

your right and proper power spot, do these things: First, decide what experiences you will need in order to feel loved and nurtured between now and your birthday. Second, determine the two goals that are most important for you to accomplish between now and your birthday. And third, summon a specific vision of how you can best express your generosity between now and your birthday.


(Jan. 20–Feb. 18) Are you excited about your new detachable set of invisible wings? They’re ready. To get the full benefit of the freedom they make available, study these tips: 1. Don’t attach them to your feet or butt; they belong on your shoulders. 2. To preserve their sheen and functionality, avoid rolling in the muddy gutter while you’re wearing them. 3. Don’t use them just to show off. 4. It’s OK to fly around for sheer joy, though. 5. Never take them off in mid–flight.


(Feb. 19–March 20) You know that leap of faith you’re considering? Now would be a good time to rehearse it, but not do it. How about that big experiment you’ve been mulling over? Imagine in detail what it would be like to go ahead, but don’t actually go ahead. Here’s my third question, Pisces: Have you been thinking of making a major commitment? My advice is similar to the first two issues: Research all of its ramifications. Think deeply about how it would change your life. Maybe even formulate a prenuptial agreement or the equivalent. But don’t make a dramatic dive into foreverness. Not yet, at least. This is your time to practice, play, and pretend.
