Cover Story

CULTURE|

by Jim Reed

FOR SEVEN GLORIOUS YEARS, Cathie Ryan was a member of the popular women’s ensemble Cherish The Ladies. That group, which celebrated traditional Irish songcraft with a flair all their own, helped catapult the Detroit-born soprano to international prominence, and in 1995 she struck out on a solo career. Since then, this daughter of Irish immigrants has steadily released 4 full-length albums on the respected roots label Shanachie Records – each one to great critical acclaim. Named Female Vocalist of The Decade by Chicago’s Irish American News, and deemed “one of the leading voices in Celtic music” by The Los Angeles Times, her eagerly awaited appearances at this year’s Savannah Irish Festival (in support of her bewitching new CD The Farthest Wave) are expected to be highlights of the long-running, familyoriented event. We caught up with the affable and gracious artist one recent afternoon.

Connect Savannah: Where do you think the new album fits into the grand scheme of your career, both as a solo artist and as a member of Cherish The Ladies? Cathie Ryan: It comes right out of where I’ve been, my time with Cherish and all the years on my own with my band. My

music’s grown up a lot, especially over these past few years. A lot has happened that has taken me deeper into song. So, what I’m singing now is more personal, more about where I am in my life. I think where lots of us are at this age.

Connect Savannah: Was there a lot of thought put into the overall feel, or were you more concerned with getting a great representation of the chosen songs? Cathie Ryan: Once I’ve got all the songs chosen and written I do think about the overall feel and sound. I like a record to sound cohesive – like it’s telling a story. I’m lucky to have a great producer on this CD, John McCusker. His musical sensibility is very like mine. We love acoustic guitar and fiddles and whistles – Celtic instrumentation. And, thankfully, he doesn’t ever want anything gimmicky to get in the way of the song.

Connect Savannah: How is your role as bandleader and frontperson different than when you were merely a featured member of a well-known group? Does “the buck stop” with you these days? Cathie Ryan: Yep! (Laughs) And that buck can stop pretty hard sometimes. It is great because I can sing what I want to, tell a story through the songs and 4:00 - THE DADY BROTHERS 5:00 - CATHIE RYAN BAND

connect to the audience in my own way. But taking care of all the details of touring is hard work. The whole band lives for our time onstage. That is the bit of magic that keeps you going!

Cathie Ryan: No. I do have my moments where I wished I had more of an outlet for the country songs I write. I love American music. I love singing it, and I don’t do it enough. But I’m doing a gig with (former U.S. Poet Laureate) Billy Collins. He’s a great harmony singer, and we’re gonna do Hank Williams and all those great low and lonesome country songs. I can’t wait!

Connect Savannah: Was it a difficult decision to strike out on your own, or did it seem to be a natural progression?

Connect Savannah: People often assume the music someone performs must be the only type of music they enjoy, although that’s usually not the case at all. Who are some artists that are personal favorites of yours which might surprise your fans?

Cathie Ryan: It was the right time to leave. But it was very hard. I agonized about it for two years before I did it. I’m not so good with change. I’m getting better though. I’m trying to see that not knowing how things will turn out doesn’t mean they’ll turn out badly!

Connect Savannah: In the States at least, Celtic music seems to act as a “gateway genre” to other types of world music. As a well-known Irish-American artist, Does that responsibility weigh heavily on you? Cathie Ryan: No, I love it. I just finished a workshop with a group of high school kids in Seattle, and it was great. I love talking about Irish music, it is so full of living energy, so full of beauty. And it’s fathomless. I’m still, after all these years, discovering traditional songs I’ve never learned and stories I never heard about songs I know. Irish music is a deep and nourishing well. And these kids at the workshop today got that immediately. The humanity of it, the gorgeous melodies, are accessible and speak to the heart. It’s great to see how an old song could make them laugh, and free them in that way.

Connect Savannah: Do you ever tire of playing Irish-based music?

Cathie Ryan: I love Lyle Lovett, John Prine, Bruce Springsteen, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton, Rickie Lee Jones, people who sing great songs. I also love Van Morrison. There’s so many. When I’m cooking, I like to put on The Gypsy Kings or “Satchmo” and Ella. And I really love watching Elvis concert videos. Wasn’t he great?

Connect Savannah: What did you glean from your father’s work as a vocalist and your grandmother’s fiddling and singing that’s featured in your own music? Cathie Ryan: The love of the music, the joy in it. It is healing. I would watch my grandmother play and she would sit there with her silver hair braided into a bun, smiling. When she played, I knew what she looked like as a girl. It transformed her. Even in the end when she had Alzheimer’s, when she was no longer “there,” I once sang to her and she came back, fully back. She knew me, and she was like she always was – full of love and music. Singing allowed me to be with her again. My dad was in a lot of pain in his younger years and I know the music was an outlet for him. He could express emotion in his songs and his singing that he couldn’t share otherwise.

EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT to know him better and, maybe even, to forgive him some of his hardness. I think I understand now that when I sing, it isn’t about me or singing perfectly or correctly. It is about the song and what it says. It is about the sharing of the song, the way it connects us all. It is the one communication I know of that goes right to the spirit of the singer and the listener.

Music, food, drink and art -Irish style The 15th Annual Savannah Irish Fest covers all the bases WELL, IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR again. No, not St. Patrick’s Day – but don’t worry, that’s coming. Now in its 15th year, The Savannah Irish Festival is a jam-packed two-day showcase of Celtic music, storytelling and revelry that’s become one of the most highly anticipated festivals of the season. Entertainment-wise, organizer and Festival Chairman Jimmy Buttimer is fond of referring to this as “the best deal in town,” and one would be hard-pressed to argue that point with him. For a bit more than a standard-price movie ticket, adults can spend an entire day roaming from stage to stage and from booth to booth. They’ll get up close and personal with many of the top names in the American Celtic music community, and get to sample plenty of Irish delicacies made fresh by local Irish societies, such as The Friendly Sons,The Emerald Society, and The Ancient Order of Hibernians. Many of the vendors – selling everything from handmade linen to crystal, as

well as inexpensive souvenirs – travel to Savannah from their native Ireland specifically for this event, and Buttimer says it’s not uncommon for the same artisans to return year after year – many of them building repeat customers (and sometimes making friends) along the way. The festival is also a treasure trove for Celtic music collectors, who can browse through hundreds of rare import CDs which are normally hard to come by in the States – if available at all. Still, it’s not the recorded music that holds the crowd’s attention. It’s the live sets by a cross-section of both Irish and contemporary acoustic folk acts that are the main draw for young and old alike. “We look for artists of Irish traditional music as well as American performers of Irish descent who are accomplished in their fields,” explains Buttimer. This year’s lineup includes local names such as songwriter and guitarist Harry O’Donoghue, regional acts such as continued on page 8

Cathie Ryan: I wish I could observe a strict diet! I can’t most of the time, but before I sing I don’t eat dairy. It just clogs up the vocal chords. I also drink lots of water. And I do vocal exercises. The vocal chords are a muscle and need warming up to keep them supple and strong. If you don’t use it you lose it. I do need to do more aerobic type exercise. That helps with breath control and having full use of the body as an instrument.

“be” there – meet up with friends, share some Southern food, walk the streets downtown. It is a charming and welcoming place.

Editor, Thank you for your recent excellent article by Nadra Enzi (“Saving Which Savannah?”, Jan. 18). I particularly was enlightened by the facts relating to the powerlessness of the democratically-elected mayor and city councilmen. It reinforced my feeling that when black or white poor enter the political arena, all of the power mechanisms are pulled out from under them, and they are left to function only as the image of a multi-ethnic democratic society. They can also be targeted for complaint when the social structure fails. Sounds like a good system if you’re on the right side. Unless, of course, you happen to reap the inevitable dark side of poverty and exclusion -- as the young white lady in the park did, however much she herself was not to blame. Mr. Enzi’s article was naturally concerned with the obvious racism of this town and of course the entire country. But there is something else to add: Americans are focused on racism (not changing it, just talking about it) and never use the term “class.” The massive numbers of white poor go unreported, leaving it to look as though blacks and their culture are somehow responsible for their own poverty. After all, every white person is doing OK, right? Wrong. There is an entire white working class that is hanging on by their fingernails and finding that if they do not engage in some kind of underground economy, i.e., drugs, theft, illegal making and selling of alcohol, they and their families will disappear. And they are right. There is no help for them. In fact, it is my belief that the working class, which includes most black people and a vast number of European background folks, are targeted for elimination in one way or another. Prisons are there for them. (That’s why drugs were put on the street and then criminalized.) Or they can be cannon fodder for the massive military buildup to Armageddon the U.S. is engaged in.

What is clear is that no future society of technocrats can (or will) tolerate vast armies of unemployable, unsocialized people roaming free. That racism and poverty have been perpetuated as useful tools for some to amass capital and land and get work done with practically no outlay of expenditure (how about the minimum wage scam? You’d have to work three full-time jobs to exist) is beside the point. We are looking at a future that is as black and void as at any time in history, with a fearful and ruthless oligarchy crouching within gated communities, sometimes sallying forth into a city of strangely cinematic facades, which when leaving the main tourist areas turn into sinister pathways of ruins, despair and whatever crime comes to hand to get along until tomorrow. Make no mistake. The lines have been drawn for decades. The choices have been made, just not by us. Well then, let’s let those whose decisions really count make them without us colluding. Let them meet without us, without any of our representatives, look across the room and see only each other. They may begin to feel uncomfortable, unsure of themselves. They may begin to wonder what happened to those folks they’ve come so to rely on, to use and to abuse, to blame for all their own failures, sometimes to torture, always to ignore. Until massive change is forced on this society by those who have to have it to survive, the working class, including most blacks, must remain the objects of history, not the subjects. Abiezer Coppe

Second arrest in Ross case A second arrest has been made in the Dec. 24 shooting of Jennifer Ross. Detectives last week charged Kevin Huckabee, 20, of Savannah. Huckabee was already in jail on charges unrelated to the shooting. The Feb. 7 Huckabee charging of Huckabee comes on the heels of the Jan. 31 arrest of Michael Thorpe, 25, for the same crime. Acting Police Chief Willie Lovett commented that “Homicide investigations in general are very complex, particularly when you are dealing with multiple suspects. The key to solving cases like this rest with producing a domino effect,

A search of the car turned up “more than three pounds of marijuana, five tablets of the designer drug XTC, 20 grams of crack cocaine, and one 45caliber handgun,” police say. Because of the quantity of drugs, the Counter Narcotics Team took over the investigation. Wright is now in the Chatham County jail.

A Fowlkes-y welcome About 120 guests filled up the historic, elegant but little-visited Alida Harper-Fowlkes House last Thursday in one of the opening events of Georgia Days 2006. In a gala sponsored by the Georgia HIstorical Society and catered by John Nichols, guests got a chance to mingle in the Orleans Square headquarters of the local Society of the Cincinnatti. The Harper-Fowlkes home was deeded to that organization in 1985 and since than has been open by invitation only.

Walking in Memphis For the younger generation riding the wave of possibilities, the talk was babies and unions. One woman I’ve known most of her life is pregnant and happy, happy, happy. Who cares if the father, a poet just turned 50, has six kids? Another young woman I just met - a fortysomething niece to the birthday girl -- came with her 14-month-old son. His twin sister stayed home in Los Angeles with his other mother -- one is mommy, the other mama -- and a 7-year-old sister. All three children share the same father, an anonymous soul, bless his heart, who donated his sperm. The women -- one gave birth to the twins, the other to the older child -- have each adopted one another’s children. Not to leave race out of the picture, since it’s as much a part of our looney, hypocritical society as high taxes, corrupt government and personal trainers, there were the people who came into the kitchen, saw three cooks in white chef’s jackets -- two white men and one black man -- and immediately assumed one of the white men was the one in charge. Wrong. Gosh, all this and more. We can only wonder where the next few decades will take us. ◗

“So are you going to wait for 65 or take it at 62?� “You’ve got a personal trainer, too? Good. I don’t feel so extravagant.� “What? Your mother is nearly 100? And living by herself? Amazing.� The night before the party, the twentysomething, who lives in Brooklyn, was eating Thai food with her mother and the host only to leave the restaurant and find all her things stolen, including the pearls she just got from her late grandmother, pearls the thrifty woman from Missouri never took out of her dresser. “The only time I wore them was to the funeral,� said the twentysomething. The talk was politics, from left to right. One bumper sticker on the Volvo of a former journalist read: “Clinton lied but no one died.� But the biggest beef this man had was picking up a paper and suffering through poor editing, unnecessary words, incorrect syntax. “It drives me crazy to read about something that happened at the intersection of Elm and Washington streets,� he said. Then there were some of the relatives from Texas -- dyed-in-the-wool Republicans who could not bring themselves to vote for W (or Kerry or Gore).

Ever considerate of a crowd who may not know or remember one another, the birthday girl, a high school classmate of Harriet Miers (Harriet who?), and her daughter asked invitees to wear name tags and to describe how they knew the guest of honor. Most complied, however generically. Former neighbor. Oldest friend. College roommate. Business partner. Fellow board member. Former publisher. But with a timeline of six decades in a world turned upside down and then some, it was the story behind the name that made for more interesting discussion - the dental student turned carpenter then developer, the astrologer turned personal coach, the art student turned leather entrepreneur, the potters from Missouri. That and the bits and pieces of conversation between friends and with strangers. Somehow it doesn’t matter where anyone lives, west coast, east coast, prairies. Everyone has basically the same concerns - when to take social security; firsthand experience with crime; what to do about elderly parents; and health, high taxes, computer dating, real estate.

FOR THE EVENT, a 60th birthday celebration, the birthday girl, a woman of many talents, left no stone unturned, no detail untended. But we know this about her -- and her daughter, a frisky twentysomething (with a penchant for red Wellington boots) and the one who really got the ball rolling. We know the crowd these two can attract. Which is why so many people traveled so far for the soiree at a recently restored house in Memphis’ historic Overton Park, including a former exchange student turned airline worker from Denmark and a college friend from Los Angeles who “chapters DVD’s.� The French meringue birthday cake -baked and hand-held on the plane by a beloved brother-in-law-slash-professional -caterer-from-New York -- would have been enough.

There was nothing shabby about the ribs, either, complemented by a Mongolian barbecue sauce, sweet and savory, that simmered for two days, a perfect reminder of how long it takes to

from recent Savannah/Chatham Police incident reports

AN UNKNOWN SUSPECT allegedly pointed a pistol at a motorist after a traffic altercation. A man called police to say he and his female passenger were leaving the area at Windsor and White Bluff roads when a vehicle in front of them wouldn’t go when the light turned green. The man said he blew his horn, then the suspect slowly pulled off, but when the man passed him, the suspect gave him the middle finger. The man sped past the suspect, who then sped up behind him, flashing his headlights and blowing his horn. Then the suspect pulled up on the side of the man’s car and pointed a gun at him. The suspect then went north on White Bluff Road and east on Montgomery Cross Road. His vehicle turned into a parking lot of a gentleman’s club and turned around, then continued east on Montgomery Cross Road, then turned around again. The vehicle was last seen going south on White Bluff Road, but the victim and witness were able to describe the vehicle and give officers the vehicle’s tag number. • More than $800 in cash was stolen from a Mall Boulevard fast-food restaurant. The owner told police an employee was supposed to close the business, put the money from the cash registers in a deposit bag and then lock the deposit bag in the business safe. But when his day manager came in and opened the safe in the presence of armored-car service personnel who were to take the deposit to the bank, the deposit bag and cash were not inside. The owner said the night manager had worked for him about two months and claims he put the money in the safe after closing. • A woman who saw children throwing rocks at her car told police she asked them to stop. She said the children’s mother then got into her face and pointed at her, saying she would “kick her ass.” The woman called police. A witness across the street confirmed that the suspect pointed her finger in the complainant’s face, but could not hear what was said. The suspect admitted she got in the woman’s face and said she did so because the woman was cursing at her children. However, she said she did not threaten to “beat her ass.”

to administer corporal punishment by striking the girl on the legs with a belt. But the girl resisted and punched her mother in the face. The woman had a red mark on her cheek, but the officer was not sure if the woman was flushed or the mark was the result of the blow. The girl confirmed her mother’s story. The woman said she called police in order to get a police report about the incident so she could get advice from juvenile justice. • A Garden City police officer’s squad car was nearly struck by a vehicle driven by an unlicensed driver. The officer said he was traveling south on Dean Forest Road when the car nearly struck his vehicle. He initiated a traffic stop and spoke with the driver. The man stated he does not currently have a valid driver’s license, but he did supply a Georgia ID card. He was arrested for driving without a license and taken to jail, and his car was turned over to his wife. • A local auto sales agency repossessed a truck, only to discover it had been damaged. The man who had purchased the truck had been arrested for driving under the influence and is now in jail. After the vehicle was towed from his residence, it was discovered that the windshield was cracked, the left headlight was torn out and the passenger window and back windshield were shattered. Also, a powdery white substance was found on the floorboard. The owner of the auto sales questioned the suspect’s family, but they wouldn’t say anything, so he called police. ◗

Guess Who I Saw?

Leslie I know Atlanta’s Cogburns are headlining (and that Atlanta raunch-rawk act with matching white shirts and skinny ties is tight as all get out, plus good to tap your foot – and raise a glass – to), but for my money, opener Leslie is the band to beat. Named after the rotating speaker which provided the swirling psychedelic tone for everything from Booker T.’s Hammond to Jimi’s Fender, they’re one of the freshest and most asskicking bands I’ve heard come from Charleston in, well, ever. Like The High Numbers getting tore up on Mickey’s Widemouths with Steve Wynn and Peter Case at an EC & The Attractions show circa ‘78. Loud, brash and ballsy. Great, great stuff. Pick up on it.

The Wiyos

This “rumbustious” Canadian band (of Scottish and Irish heritage) serves up sweaty, Black-and-Tan, fist-in-the-air mantras a la their heroes The Pogues. They’ve been known to pack this long, narrow hardwood pub on their increasingly frequent East Coast assaults. For this show (a hard-rocking counterpart to their appearance at the 2006 Savannah Irish Festival), they’ll be joined by none other than McConnell, whom many have hailed as one of the finest Celtic rock songwriters and frontmen Canada has ever produced. To some, his band The Mahones are as iconic up there as The Tragically Hip or Cowboy Junkies. This should be a wild and raucous evening of high-energy U.K. punk in the vein of The Clash. Sat., 10 pm, Finnegan’s Wake.

Cutting-edge films presented during Black Maria and Jewish film festivals

A still from Seed, a claymation short by Bennett Cain SOME REVOLUTIONARY AND unusual films are coming to Savannah in not one, but two, film festivals. The 25th Black Maria Film and Video Festival will be Friday, Feb. 17, at 8 p.m. at Trustees Theater. And the 2006 Joan & Murray Gefen Memorial Jewish Film Festival is Feb. 18-19, 23, and Feb. 25-26 at Trustees Theater. The Black Maria Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission is to exhibit and reward cutting-edge works from independent film and video makers. A rigorous jurying process selects the 50 or so films and videos and in January, those films begin traveling to more than 70 institutions, with each stop being custom-tailored to the venue. Michael Chaney, SCAD professor of film and television, has more than a passing interest in the Black Maria. In 1995, his own film, Rock of Ages, Putt With Me, was accepted into the festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival has all kinds of fun stuff,â&#x20AC;? Chaney says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be three films, two animation and one documentary, made by SCAD students.â&#x20AC;? The documentary Band of Sisters was created by SCAD grad Joel Fendelman. The animation shorts are Seed, a claymation short by SCAD animation student Bennett Cain, and 30 Ways to Walk by SCAD animation student Jeff Gill. Viewers will see Emily Hubleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s animated short, Octave, a lively and colorful offering. Flag Day is a documentary by Kristy Higby that depicts a man who has

created a garden of flags that represent the soldiers lost in Iraq. In At Hand, Andrew Busti has burnished and liquefied the emulsion of the film to create unforgettable images. Lot 63, Grave C by Sam Green takes a look at the murder of a black man by the Hellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angels at the infamous Rolling Stones concert at Altamont. For sheer fun, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Here by Fred Worden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really crazy,â&#x20AC;? Chaney says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He takes clips from other movies to make a film that feels exciting and fun.â&#x20AC;? Although the subject matter and techniques used vary, the films all have one thing in common: Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re short. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The longest film we have is 12 minutes,â&#x20AC;? Chaney says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most run 7 to 8 minutes. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like one, just wait 5 minutes and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be another one.â&#x20AC;? SCAD has hosted the festival since 1999. Tickets to the festival are $5 for the general public, and free for SCAD students, staff and faculty with SCAD ID. The festival takes its name from an invention by Thomas Edison. In 1893 Edison created the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first known motion picture studio, an odd-looking structure with a hinged roof that rotated on a circular wooden track. He called it â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Black Maria,â&#x20AC;? pronounced â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mariah.â&#x20AC;? The Black Maria is an important festival, because it is recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as an Academy Award qualifying festival for short films.

The term â&#x20AC;&#x153;groundbreakingâ&#x20AC;? has been used so often to describe new films, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lost much of its impact. But the film that opens the Jewish Film Festival, the Israeli film, Ushpizin, truly has broken new ground. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the very first time that the Orthodox community has been involved in working on a feature film,â&#x20AC;? says festival organizer Lynn Levine says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The film industry in Israel is very strong, but it is mostly a secular industry.â&#x20AC;? The star of the film, Shuli Rand, was a secular film actor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He rediscovered his religious roots and became an Orthodox Jew,â&#x20AC;? Levine says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had gotten away from the industry.â&#x20AC;? When approached about doing the film, Rand agreed, but only after two conditions were met. One was that his reallife wife, Michal Bat-Sehva, portray his movie wife, the other was that the film not be screened on the Jewish sabbath. In the film, Moshe and Malli are a poor, childless couple who pray on the Sukkot holiday for a miracle. The film is in Hebrew with English subtitles, but its theme is universal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we felt could appeal not only to our community, from Reform to Orthodox Jews, but to the community at large,â&#x20AC;? Levine says. On Sunday, Feb. 19 at 2:30 p.m. at Trustees Theater, A Cantorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tale will be presented. This documentary follows Cantor Jacob â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jackieâ&#x20AC;? Mendelson on a

voyage that explores the American roots of hazzanut, Jewish liturgical music. The Seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Matinee on Thursday, Feb. 23 at 1:30 p.m. at the Jewish Educational Alliance will feature To Be Or Not To Be, a 1942 comedy with Jack Benny. On Saturday, Feb. 25 at 8:30 p.m. at Trustees Theater, King of the Corner, a comedy-drama by Peter Riegert, will be screened. Watermarks, a documentary, will be presented with bagels and coffee on Sunday, Feb. 26 at 11 a.m. at the JEA. It tells the story of the Jewish sports club and its champion women swimmers. This is the third year the festival has been presented. It began after Levine approached the JEA about developing an annual Jewish film festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I grew up here, but lived in Washington, D.C., for a long time. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tremendous Jewish film festival there. When I came back to Savannah four years ago, I wanted to see something like that started here,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always enjoyed good movies and I decided to do something about it.â&#x20AC;? Individual ticket prices are $8 for adults and $5 for students (with the exception of Watermarks, which costs $6 for adults, and To Be or Not to Be, which is free for seniors). However, the Full Festival Pass costs a mere $18. â&#x2014;&#x2014;

Has any superstar of the past 20 years bungled his career as thoroughly as Harrison Ford? It’s only been about a decade since blockbusters like The Fugitive and Air Force One kept him at the head of the class alongside Hanks, Cruise and Gibson, but one bad choice after another has dropped him out of contention while the other three actors continue to drive the box office. His fall from popular grace would be easier to swallow if his duds were at least artistic productions that found him attempting to stretch or make personal statements, but instead, they were safe, predictable choices that offered nothing new -either to himself or audiences (Ford famously turned down the Michael Douglas role in Traffic, not long after announcing that he was ready to start making edgy, provocative films). Firewall is such a tired copy of Ford’s past adventures that it almost verges on parody. Once again, the actor plays an upstanding guy who must save his family from dangerous foreigners, an angle previously tapped in Air Force One and Patriot Games (to name but two). In this case, he’s Jack Stanfield, a bank executive responsible for creating the computer programs that prevent the facility from ever getting hacked. But when Eurotrash bandit Bill Cox (Paul Bettany) and his gang of techies snatch Jack’s wife Beth (Virginia Madsen) and their two children, our hero has no choice but to aid them in their scheme to siphon millions of dollars from the accounts of the bank’s wealthiest clients. Madsen, whose career was revived via her smashing turn in Sideways, finds herself relegated to cheerleader status as her character has nothing to do except wait to get saved by her hubby -- she doesn’t even warrant an Anne Archer moment to call her own. As for Ford, it’s almost painful to watch him going through the motions here. The twinkle of mischievousness and sprinkle of levity that he brought to many of his most memorable films -- even the dramas like The Fugitive and Witness -- are conspicuously missing here, replaced by a cranky fatigue that’s difficult to watch and impossible to enjoy.

THE PINK PANTHER ✰1/2

continued from page 19

Suffering from a particularly misguided delusion of grandeur, Steve Martin has elected to co-write and star in a new version of The Pink Panther. But why stop there? While he’s busy plundering the cemetery of iconic movie roles, he might as well try his hand at another Casablanca or a new Citizen Kane. It would only be a slightly less ludicrous endeavor. The original 1964 film only features Inspector Clouseau in a supporting role. But it immediately became obvious - to series creator Blake Edwards and to viewers -- that the real prize here was the performance by Peter Sellers as the bumbling police inspector. The names of Peter Sellers and Jacques Clouseau became synonymous from there on out, with the actor returning to the role several times before his death in 1980. Were the movie surrounding Martin a top-flight comedy, it might be easier to let him slide in the role. But this new Panther is as clumsy as its leading figure. The basic story is prime material for this sort of outing -- a French soccer coach (an unbilled Jason Statham) is murdered during a championship game, and Chief Inspector Dreyfus (Kevin Kline, too restrained to provide the original series’ Herbert Lom with any serious competition) decides to put a moron in charge of the investigation so that he may quietly nab the culprit himself. Dreyfus settles on provincial policeman

Clouseau, not aware that this imbecilic officer will embarrass him in ways he never dreamed possible. For the most part, the gags dreamed up by Martin and co-writers Len Blum and Michael Saltzman aren’t particularly fresh, mildly amusing bits are repeated until they lose every ounce of appeal, and the efforts to cater to modern audiences (a pop performance by co-star Beyonce Knowles, the unsettling image of Clouseau preparing to take Viagra) are ill-conceived. Most damaging of all, though, is the inconsistency in the central character. Sellers’ Clouseau was a standoffish moron through and through, and the fun was in watching how he repeatedly stumbled into solving the mysteries at hand. Martin, in that phase of life in which many aging actors try to endear themselves to audiences no matter the cost, softens Clouseau into a sweetly sentimental schlemiel.

FREEDOMLAND ✰✰✰

An adaptation of Richard Price’s novel that itself owes a debt to the real-life Susan Smith incident, Freedomland is a forceful drama that would be compelling enough without all the needless fuss made by director Joe Roth. Two hardhitting lead performances combine with some salient points about racial tensions to produce a powderkeg of a movie, a far cry from the insipid drivel usually tossed out by studios at this time of year. Samuel L. Jackson stars as Lorenzo

Council, a detective assigned to question a woman (Julianne Moore) who claims a black man from the projects stole her car while her young son was sleeping in the back seat. The inner-city locals are outraged at the media attention -- where were all the cameras when their own kids were in danger? Lorenzo turns to a missing-children activist (Edie Falco) to help him determine what really happened to the distraught mom’s boy. Moore’s performance is hard to take in its intensity, yet it’s true to the character and her circumstances. Yet it’s Jackson who holds our attention throughout, making an indelible impression as an African-American lawman whose loyalties are questioned by both his friends in the projects and his acquaintances on the force.

CAPOTE ✰✰✰

The selling point in Capote is the excellent lead performance by Philip Seymour Hoffman, that character actor extraordinaire who has contributed finely etched portrayals to such films as The Talented Mr. Ripley and Magnolia. Constantly punctuating the air with his whispery wit and entertaining other people as if to the diva manner born, Hoffman's Capote is an odd figure against the barren backdrop of the Kansas flatlands, where he has come to learn about the brutal murders of a respected family of four. Accompanied by his friend Harper Lee (Catherine Keener), whose own book is about to make her a celebrity in her own right (a running gag is that nobody can recall the name of her upcoming novel, just that it has something to do with killing birds), Capote gets to know some of the locals and, eventually, the two drifters found responsible for the repugnant killings. He forms a bond with one of them, a pensive type named Perry Smith (Clifton Collins Jr.). But as time passes and

Capote keeps needling Perry for specific details on the murders it becomes unclear -- perhaps even to Capote himself -- whether the author is merely using Perry for his own purposes or whether the doomed convict has indeed stirred Capote's own humanity.

MATCH POINT ✰✰✰

This picture represents Allen's best work since 1996's overlooked Everyone Says I Love You, but it hardly belongs in the pantheon reserved for the likes of Annie Hall and Hannah and Her Sisters. Yet the hosannas are understandable: It's nice to have Allen back again, even if it turns out to be only for a short visit. Forsaking his beloved New York City, Allen has made a film that's set -- and shot -- in England. Also gone is another mainstay: the nebbish protagonist, generally played by Allen himself but on occasion portrayed by a younger actor like John Cusack or Jason Biggs. Clearly, the leading character here is no nervous, self-effacing nerd. Chris Wilton (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is handsome, charismatic and secure enough to know what he wants out of life. A tennis pro employed at a posh London club, he makes the acquaintance of dashing rich kid Tom Hewett (Matthew Goode), who then proceeds to introduce Chris to his sister Chloe (Emily Mortimer). Chris' life in the fast lane, however, encounters a speed bump in the curvaceous shape of Tom's American fiancée, Nola Rice (Scarlett Johansson). Eventually, the two engage in an adulterous tryst that has the potential to bring down Chris' carefully constructed lifestyle. Match Point is exceedingly well-written and exquisitely performed (Johansson stands out in her best performance to date), yet what causes it to come up a hair short of true greatness is that, for all its dissimilarities to past Allen films, it still ends up largely playing like a remake of the "Crimes" half


SB

of Crimes and Misdemeanors, the section of the two-story film that focused on the adulterous duo portrayed by Martin Landau and Anjelica Huston. For the sake of avoiding spoilers, I won't specify exactly where the films line up and where they deviate, but suffice to say that this new drama could have offered more surprises and still retained Allen's thematic stance.

Any ambience created in tandem by ace cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki Lubezki and director Terrence Malick repeatedly dissipate in the face of the plodding treatment of fascinating material: the founding of Jamestown in 1607 and, more specifically, the relationship between lithe Native American girl Pocahontas (Q'orianka Kilcher) and sensitive English settler John Smith (Colin Farrell). As a look at the despoiling of untamed territory by brutish Europeans, this can't touch Herzog's Aguirre: The Wrath of God -heck, it's not even up to the shaky standards of Hector Babenco's At Play In the Fields of the Lords. Malick’s indifference to the accomplished performers milling around the set (Christopher Plummer and Christian Bale among them) is so apparent that one almost wonders why

he didn't just cast this with mannequins. He seems equally bored with prose, considering some of the dead-weight exclamations uttered by various characters. To even attempt to compare The New World with Disney's animated Pocahontas would be a pointless exercise in futility, far beyond apples and oranges. But I will say this: Where's a mischievous raccoon when you really need one?

NANNY MCPHEE ✰✰1/2

Nanny McPhee may be based on Christianna Brand’s “Nurse Matilda” books, but its cinematic predecessor is clearly the family film that turned “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” into the longest household word ever recorded. Reminiscent of the black comedies routinely made by Danny De Vito (most notably his delightful Matilda), Nanny McPhee finds director Kirk Jones and Emma Thompson (who also penned the script) similarly employing menacing situations, questionable comic material and oversized, often grotesque characters in an unorthodox attempt to arrive at a sentimental conclusion. Thompson, delivering a sharp performance under pounds of facial latex, plays the title character, a snaggletooth, wart-sprouting nursemaid who mysteriously shows up to help a widower (Colin Firth) contend with his seven monstrous

children. As Nanny McPhee helps transform these little devils into little angels, she also becomes involved in the family’s strained affairs with an interfering aunt (Angela Lansbury) and a husband-hunting harridan (Celia Imrie).

SOMETHING NEW ✰✰1/2

From Silver Streak to Bringing Down the House, there have been countless movies in which an uptight Caucasian is taught how to loosen up by an AfricanAmerican acquaintance. Something New reverses that formula, but beyond this little-seen novelty, there’s not much about this modest romantic comedy that transcends the story’s expected ebb and flow. Here, the rigid individual is Kenya McQueen (Sanaa Lathan), a workaholic who doesn’t have time to look for her IBM (ideal black male). When she finally does make time to go on a blind date, she’s stunned to discover that the guy, a landscape architect named Brian Kelly (Simon Baker), is white. Initially resistant, she soon finds herself relaxing in his company and comes to realize that he’d make a suitable boyfriend. But once Kenya is eventually introduced to her “perfect mate,” a black businessman (Blair Underwood) who shares her work ethics and outlook on life, she’s forced to make a decision between what she wants and what society expects. This potential

sleeper from director Sanaa Hamri and screenwriter Kriss Turner (both making their feature-film debuts) is a diamond in the rough, blessed with a vibrant leading lady and choice moments dealing with racial tensions but marred by occasional clunky dialogue and perfunctory supporting characters.

LAST HOLIDAY ✰✰1/2

A remake of a 1950 British comedy starring Alec Guinness, Last Holiday is better than expected thanks to its retooling as a vehicle for Queen Latifah. Latifah stars as Georgia Byrd, a working class woman who, upon learning that she’ll die in three weeks, cashes in all her assets and heads off to the Czech Republic with the intent of winding down her life in luxury. While at the hotel, she befriends the cook (Gerard Depardieu -how I’ve missed him!), offers sage advice and butts heads with her former boss, the hardhearted CEO of a national retail chain (Timothy Hutton). Meanwhile, her love interest (LL Cool J) back home discovers her dark secret and hightails it to be by her side.

BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN ✰✰✰1/2

The secret behind Brokeback Mountain is that, behind its convenient (and infuriating) designation as “the gay cowboy

movie,” this is as universal as any love story Hollywood has produced in recent times. As Jack, Gyllenhaal delivers a nicely modulated performance that’s by turns silly and sullen. The weakness in his work -- that he doesn’t completely disappear into his character -- is only noticeable because his co-star is operating at such a stratospheric level. Ledger, in short, is phenomenal as Ennis, the sort of pensive individual who’s so reluctant to speak that it appears as if uttering a syllable is as strenuous for him as lifting a refrigerator is to the rest of us.

MUNICH ✰✰✰

Munich is a strong film, an important work, and already a lightning rod for controversy and (one hopes) healthy debate. But another instant Spielberg classic? Not quite. With a script drafted by heavy-hitters Tony Kushner (Angels In America) and Eric Roth (Forrest Gump), Munich is largely a fictionalization of the events that transpired after that tragic day at the 1972 Olympics in Germany, when a group of Palestinian terrorists known as Black September slaughtered the Israeli athletes they were holding as hostages. The movie reveals that, in an effort to exhibit their toughness to the world, the Israeli government sent a select band of assassins to eliminate everyone who was responsible for the

Munich massacre. Spielberg and his writers bring to vivid life this motley crew of enforcers.

HOODWINKED ✰1/2

Clearly aping the Shrek films, this attempts to put a spin on the classic children’s fairy tales by adding all manner of so-called “hip” references and grownup-geared plot maneuverings, approaches that grow more stale with each passing year.

FUN WITH DICK AND JANE ✰✰1/2

GOOD NIGHT & GOOD LUCK ✰✰✰1/2

Good Night, And Good Luck, which marks George Clooney's second stint as director, looks at an inspiring moment in US history, when Murrow, more or less backed by an uneasy CBS, did the unthinkable by standing up to Joe McCarthy, the junior Senator from Wisconsin who was destroying lives left and right. The movie's stroke of genius, however, is in its masterful integration of actual newsreel footage into the fictionalized framework. No actor was hired to play Joe McCarthy because none was needed. ◗

Just as Ray lived or died on the performance of Jamie Foxx, so too does Walk the Line depend on the mesmerizing work by Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon (who both do their own singing). Phoenix commands the screen, yet even he's topped by Witherspoon in her most fully realized performance since Election. Phoenix may provide the movie with its voice, but it's Witherspoon who delivers its soul.

Jim Carrey and Tea Leoni play the new Dick and Jane, who find themselves in a similar predicament once the CEO (Alec Baldwin) of Dick’s company bails out, leaving thousands of employees without jobs, pensions or benefits. After working a series of low-paying odd jobs (the picture’s funniest sequences), the couple eventually turn to robbing local shops with a squirt gun, earning enough dough to engage in even more elaborate heists.

Free Will Astrology

ARIES (March 21-April 19): In his book *And They All Sang,* Studs Terkel interviewed jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. “When people say, ‘I don’t understand your music,’” reported Gillespie, “I say, ‘Don’t try to understand it, just try to *feel* it.’” That’s excellent advice to keep in mind as you weave your way through the complicated, uncanny, revelatory weeks ahead. Full comprehension of the meaning of this era may not be available until later. But that won’t be a problem if you live your life as if it were a song you love. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “Dear Dr. Brezsny: I dreamed that an angel who looked like Angelina Jolie was teaching me how to gather energy high in the sky and release it in the form of lightning bolts. It required great upper arm strength because I had to make broad sweeping motions with my arms that gathered the necessary electricity into a vortex that would serve as my launching area. I was exhilarated, though nervous about how much force I had at my disposal. What does my dream mean? -Taurus with Goose Bumps.” Dear Taurus: Your dream is a symbol of the situation many Bulls are facing right now. You have enormous energy at your disposal. Here’s my advice: *Don’t* use your lightning bolts to intimidate people and institutions that have offended you. Instead, put on a demonstration of strength, impressing everyone--adversaries and allies alike--with your ability to command great power responsibly. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Last Christmas Day, I had dinner at a sushi restaurant in downtown San Rafael, CA. The place was deserted except for a drunk at the bar, me and my two companions, and the table next to us, which was occupied by actors Sean Penn and Robin Wright and their daughter. I thought of going over to compliment Robin on her work in various films and to tell Sean how much I loved his articles in the *San Francisco Chronicle* about his travels in Iraq, but I decided against it. *Don’t* follow my example in the coming week, Gemini. Express your appreciation to those whose work has inspired you, even at the risk of appearing foolish. It’s a perfect moment to explore

the emotions of admiration and respect, and to pay homage to your influences.

Virgo. I predict that you’ll turn crap into treasure.

controversial truths, reach out to those who disagree with you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): The mayor of Las Vegas has suggested a novel idea for discouraging graffiti on his city’s highway walls. Oscar Goodman envisions televised spectacles in which the vandals’ thumbs are cut off. His proposed punishment goes too far for my tastes, but I’m wondering if you might approve of it. Lately you’ve been having bouts of overreaction, entertaining extreme fantasies in response to circumstances that don’t necessarily warrant them. I’m not saying your intense emotions are completely unjustified, Cancerian, nor do I recommend that you repress them. I’m simply asking you to let some time pass before you take action on your feelings.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Mirrors should think longer before they reflect,” said French filmmaker Jean Cocteau. That’s especially true for you this week, Libra. You shouldn’t automatically believe every bit of feedback about yourself that comes your way, either from mirrors or any other source. Be skeptical of every image that people have of you, and don’t sit there passively while they barrage you with their expectations. In order to further upgrade your integrity (a project I hope you’re in the midst of), you may have to make yourself immune, at least temporarily, to what everyone thinks of you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Readers sometimes ask me about Ophiuchus, the supposed 13th constellation. They’ve heard that it should be included in astrological thinking, and that it messes up the whole zodiacal system. Here’s the truth: The proponents of Ophiuchus are selfdescribed debunkers who hate astrology. Furthermore, they haven’t actually taken the trouble to educate themselves about the ancient art. If they did even a smattering of honest investigation, they’d see how irrelevant their theory is. Let this serve as a cautionary tale, Capricorn. Right now it’s crucial that you get your facts straight before critiquing anyone. Make sure that those who want to analyze you do the same. And beware of red herrings, straw men, and fool’s gold.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): An executive at the UK’s biggest pharmaceutical company admitted that most prescription medicines aren’t very effective. “The vast majority of drugs only work in 30 or 50 per cent of the people,” said Allen Roses of GlaxoSmithKline. His explanation: Many patients have idiosyncratic genes that prevent the medicines from functioning as they were designed to. In my opinion, Leo, there’s a similar principle at work regarding just about everything that conventional wisdom says is good for you. That’s always important to keep in mind, of course, but especially for you right now. More than ever, you’ll benefit profoundly from not only questioning authorities and experts, but giving them the third degree. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The elegant, shimmering fabric known as silk is obtained from the cocoon of a worm larva. Typically the cocoon is dunked in boiling water to kill the pupa inside before it can chew its way out. Another precious material with gross origins is ambergris. It’s a foulsmelling excrement that sperm whales vomit. After years of exposure to the sun while floating on the ocean, it transforms into an aromatic, waxy substance that’s used as a major ingredient in perfume. Silk and ambergris are your personal power symbols in the coming weeks,

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Imagine that you’re a circus acrobat whose specialty is working high in the air. You’re skilled at swinging from one trapeze to another. You have utmost confidence in your timing and concentration and grip, so that when you let go of one bar and are flying toward the next, there’s no doubt you’ll make it. I believe that your life has now brought you to a transition that’s metaphorically similar to the moment of being in between trapezes. Don’t think too hard as you soar across the abyss; trust your instincts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Sagittarian Shirley Chisholm was the first black woman elected to Congress. While serving seven terms, she was an outspoken warrior who fought tirelessly for the rights of women, minorities, and the poor. “My greatest political asset, which professional politicians fear,” she said, “is my mouth, out of which comes all kinds of things one shouldn’t always discuss for reasons of political expediency.” Yet one of Chisholm’s most famous exploits was her visit to segregationist politician George Wallace in the hospital after he was shot. Her supporters complained that she was consorting with the enemy, but years later it paid off. Wallace helped her win the votes of southern congressmen when she sponsored legislation to give domestic workers a minimum wage. Be like Chisholm this week, Sagittarius: Even as you open your big mouth to articulate

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Fashion designer Ennio Capasa was asked if he found his work difficult. “If it wasn’t difficult I wouldn’t enjoy it,” he replied. That’s the kind of activity you will specialize in during the coming week, Aquarius. The more it stretches your capacity and forces you to dig deeper into yourself for stamina and willpower and resourcefulness, the happier you’ll be--and the more successful, too. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Life is stark at the U.S. Navy base in Guantanamo Bay, even for the people who aren’t imprisoned there. *Newsday* reports that there are 23 men for every woman among the 2,800 free Americans. Raccoon-sized rats are fixtures in the local wildlife. The border between the base and the rest of Cuba is littered with underground mines. In recent months, however, a few luxuries have begun to arrive. There’s now a Starbucks, Pizza Hut, and miniature golf course. I don’t want to make light of the situation, but I do want these new developments to serve as a metaphor for you. What’s the most desolate, forbidding area of your psyche? Build the equivalent of a miniature golf course there. ◗

IT’S YOUR DECISION! Buying a new car is, for some people, a major purchase. First, you compare features, design, mileage, and dependability. You identify several suitable makes and models, and then compare price. With all features and benefits being equal, would you choose the most expensive, or look to the one offering the best value? You wouldn’t pay more than you have to, and homebuyers are no different. When selling your home, the asking price determines your success. Although you and only you make the pricing decision, it is wise to approach your real estate representative for advice. The agent knows what buyers have been willing to pay for other homes similar to yours. Your price must be com-

petitive against those, and no higher. Buyers often pay full price when they recognize a good value, yet rarely consider an overpriced home. Really, it is the buyers who set the sale price. No matter what you ask, until a buyer is willing to pay your price, no sale will take place. How do you determine the right price? Look closely at each sale that your agent has researched, comparing time on the market, features, financing offered, and then the final sale price. Your home’s ideal price can be found in the maze of statistics provided by your agent. Price your home to sell, and buyers will compete for it.
