Preservationists & historians fight against time to save the Cockspur Island Lighthouse

F

or over 150 years, the Cockspur Island Lighthouse has stood at the mouth of the south channel of the Savannah River, serving as a warning to ships, a witness to history, and a beacon to travelers by water and land. Despite its survival over the generations, the lighthouse is in a new war that threatens to bring down the historic landmark, the result of an infestation of shipworms eating away at the lighthouse’s wooden foundation. Earlier this month, the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation placed the lighthouse on its 2008 list of Places in Peril, a warning to government agencies, historians, and the community at large. “Cockspur Island Lighthouse is the most environmentally threatened of any of the sites,” on the Places in Peril list, says Greg Paxton, president and CEO for the Georgia Trust. “The place where it is located is a big challenge. But it does have interest in getting the restoration done.” Paxton and others familiar with the project consider being placed on the Places in Peril list a mixed blessing. “It’s obviously bad news that a place gets put on the list,” says Mark McDonald, executive director of Historic Savannah Foundation. “It means it has advanced to a level of deterioration that’s of concern for everyone. But it’s good in that it means it’s an important place and it will receive some attention,” he says. “People will be thinking about it more than the many other places in our culture that are slipping between the cracks.” Cockspur Island Lighthouse is one of five lighthouses remaining in Georgia, significant also because of its role as witness to the attack on Fort Pulaski during the Civil War. On April 10, 1862, Union forces on Tybee Island and Confederate troops in Fort Pulaski waged a 30-hour-long battle, firing mortars at each other across the mouth of the Savannah River, with the lighthouse directly in the line of fire. “Five thousand rounds going over head, Confederate and Union, and miraculously the lighthouse is unscathed,” says Charles E. Fenwick, superintendent of Fort Pulaski National Monument, which owns the 46foot tall brick structure perched off the east-

Above, Charles E. Fenwick, superintendent of Fort Pulaski, next to the original cupola of the Cockspur Island Lighthouse; at left, as recently as the ‘80s the Lighthouse sat on an identifiable land mass, now almost completely eroded (Ft. Pulaski is in the background)

ern end of Cockspur Island. “It’s the only thing here today that was here at the time of the battle,” he says. Since its original construction in 1849, Cockspur Island Lighthouse has been bombarded by forces of water, wind and oxygen. Designed by New York architect John Norris — whose other Savannah work includes the Andrew Low House and the Mercer House — the lighthouse tower was toppled by a hurricane in 1854 just five years after its commissioning. It was rebuilt in 1856 using Savannah Gray brick. While the structure itself has remained mostly intact since then, the small island underneath it has fared less well. An aerial photo from the late 1980’s shows the land mass about three times larger than the present day island. Currently, at high tide the land under the lighthouse is completely underwater, as are the first several steps to the lighthouse’s doorway. As the island washes away, it no longer protects the lighthouse foundation from its ocean-borne enemies. “The wooden base that the lighthouse sits on is exposed to water. It was never intended to be,” says Fenwick. “Shipworms start chomping on the wooden foundation. If the foundation fails then the lighthouse falls into the water. If you deny the shipworms air, you kill the current infestation

and prevent future infestation.” In early 2006, an informal committee convened to work on saving the lighthouse, spearheaded by Cullen Chambers, Executive Director of Tybee Island Historical Society. Two Tybee Island residents “both called me within three days of one another, asking if there was anything we could do,” says Chambers. “I said unless we could do something on a local level to try to raise awareness and alarm, due to lack of federal funds there wouldn’t be much done. We’d have to take a local initiative to try to do something.” Chambers enlisted the support of “a network of people we thought would be important to solving this threat,” that includes the two original citizen callers, Tybee Island city council member Paul Wolff, staff for Congressmen Jack Kingston and John Barrow, the Corps of Engineers, County Commissioner Pat Farrell, and Fenwick, who’d become Fort Pulaski’s superintendent only a few months earlier. The proposed solution is to rebuild a portion of the island, constructing a barrier of rip rap in a ring around the building “to break up some of the wave energy,” combined with “fill material like oyster shell and salt marsh grass to preserve the foundation of the lighthouse,” says Fenwick. “We want to do, not the minimum, but the least costly solution that is sustainable and will as closely as possible allow the lighthouse to maintain its historic appearance.” Still in the conceptual stages, the tentative price tag for the project is $1.4 million.

Fenwick has requested the funds through the Park Service’s regular funding sources. “I’m competing with the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Yosemite,” he says. “We were the number two priority for the region and placed on a five-year funding cycle” for fiscal year 2011. “The question becomes, can we wait that long?” Instead of waiting for funds, the committee is investigating other sources. Options include Corps of Engineers funding that requires a local match, and soliciting private contributions. “It’s kind of like a horse race. Whoever gets there first saves the lighthouse,” says Fenwick. “The Park Service has moved mountains to facilitate this process,” says Chambers. “I was afraid that given the past lack of funding that they’d resign themselves, that there wouldn’t be much they could do. I was really impressed with Charlie Fenwick’s willingness to step up to the plate in finding some direction for this effort.” Inclusion on the Places in Peril list is not accompanied by financial or legal incentives, but committee members believe the listing will heighten the public’s awareness of the urgent need for saving the lighthouse. “Anything that can be done to save it quicker, that’s what I’m interested in,” says Fenwick. “I’m not a marine biologist, I’m a historian, but it’s a matter of years, not decades.” w To comment e-mail us at letters@connectsavannah.com

Georgia’s other ‘places in peril’

T

important educational center for Winship Heights/Montpelier area, and is owned by the Bibb County Board of Education. Abandoned neighborhood schools have become a statewide problem. Neighborhoods are becoming threatened by these former anchor institutions that now sit vacant, making revitalization more difficult.

Sunbury Historic Colonial Town Site, Sunbury Founded by the Puritans, the 17581864 site of Sunbury was once an important colonial port, trading regionally with Savannah and also with New England and the Caribbean colonies. At one time, this bustling seaport was busier than the port at Savannah. Now high density residential development is nearby and coming closer; ten years ago the historic cemetery was nearly bulldozed. The owner of a critical 40-acre tract agreed to donate it but died before changing his will.

Old Clinton Historic District, Gray Established in 1807, the community of Clinton served as an economic and cultural center for the Georgia frontier. Buildings date from 1808-1835 and together provide a rare example of a largely intact Georgia rural frontier village that combines commercial and residential structures. The corridor of the south side of US 129 has been lined with strip commercial development within the last 10 years. Recently the city approved a bypass that will come within several hundred yards of the district.

University of Georgia (UGA) Marine Institute and Administration Complex, Sapelo Island The UGA Marine Institute and Administration Complex on Sapelo Island includes a circa 1925 administrative building and greenhouse structures built by Howard E. Coffin, automobile pioneer and principal landowner of Sapelo Island from 1912-1934. The greenhouses have been abandoned since 1976 and are quickly deteriorating. The administrative building was abandoned in 2004 when UGA closed its doors. It has yet to be mothballed as agreed by UGA in 2004. Adam-Strain Building, Darien A rare example of historic tabby construction, the 1813 Adam-Strain Building in Darien was built as a waterfront warehouse, survived looting and fire in 1863, and was refurbished in 1870. Darien has a low tax base and faces strong development pressure. After being denied a demolition permit in 2006, the owner put the building up for sale at a speculative price. Nearby dense residential development and the recent demolition of the eighteenth-century D’Antignac House have caused local concern to reach a new high. Meriwether County Jail, Greenville Located just off the courthouse square, the Meriwether County Jail is one of Greenville’s earliest structures. Like many historic county jails statewide, this jail is not capable of serving its original purpose, suffers from deterioration and needs structural attention. A.L. Miller Senior High School for Girls, Macon The 1930 A.L. Miller Senior High School for Girls sits in the middle of a historic neighborhood in Macon that is in much need of revitalization. It once served as an

Spencer House, Columbus The Spencer House is the 1912 home of William H. Spencer, Columbus’ first Superintendent of Colored Schools, who worked tirelessly to establish an accredited high school for African American students in Columbus. His goal was ultimately achieved when Spencer High School was built in 1930, five years after his death. The house is currently part of Columbus’ African American heritage tour and is owned by the Owlettes, Spencer High’s alumnae association. However, the Owlettes are dwindling as the group grows older. Trinity C.M.E. Church, Augusta Constructed in Augusta between 18891894, Trinity Church is the mother church of the Christian Methodist Episcopal (CME) denomination in the United States. Remodeled in 1920-1923, it is the last remaining building in a historic 19th-century African American neighborhood. The building is vacant and deteriorating and is located near a portion of the Augusta Canal that is marked to be redeveloped. The area surrounding the church has already been cleared for development. The Castle, Atlanta Built 1909-1910 by Ferdinand McMillan as his retirement home, The Castle adjoins large Midtown office buildings and the Woodruff Arts Center on Atlanta’s Peachtree and 15th Streets. Threatened with demolition in the mid-1980s, the building was called “a hunk of junk” by Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young in June 1986, sparking the strengthening of the local preservation ordinance. There is little activity at the property as it stands empty and deteriorating. Purchased in 2002 for $1 million, the property currently has a $4 million asking price. w Source: Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation (www.georgiatrust.org)

ally appropriate way,” she said. The gallery’s closing show will present new work as well, including Polaroids Leigh shot throughout his career that have not been publicly exhibited before. Some work printed by Leigh will be exhibited, as well as the first of Leigh’s images to be reproduced by Craig Stevens using carbon pigment technology, representing the new direction of the Jack Leigh archive, as it heads away from darkroom printing. New and archival work by Laney, Beasley, Robinson and other Leigh-represented artists round out the offerings of the gallery exhibit. “There are things still developing. We continue to work on the website and on placing Jack’s work in museums and collections,” says Laney. “Some major museums are interested in the archive. We’re not rushing into any major decisions.” When Laney says “we” she refers to a small board of advisors that includes people integrally involved in Leigh’s work and life for the past 15 years. In addition to the advisory board, “the girls are very interested in what’s going to happen with his work,” referring to Leigh’s daughters, Jessica Miller, 19, and Gracie Leigh, 16. For the past year or so, Jessica has helped out in the gallery with Laney, particularly in the past month in preparation for leaving the gallery space. During the last years of his life, Leigh and his family lived upstairs.

“I remember my littler sister and I would come down here for lectures on Tuesday nights,” said Jessica. “We would throw in our little two cents. We’d peek out from the back and say ‘tell them about the part where….’ My sister would draw pictures and occasionally people would buy them.” “It’s bittersweet,” said Jessica. “It’s good because I know that closing will allow more time to set up an archive, which is what Jack really wanted to happen. It’s really hard for that to be done without Susan’s full attention.” “The closing of the gallery is a very sad moment in some ways but in other ways it’s a wonderful celebration, it means his work is finding a place in a broader spectrum,” said Robinson. “So many people have come in and said ‘this is so sad,’ but it’s really not. It’s just time,” said Laney. “It just felt like Jack was up there saying ‘it’s time to close up and move on to the next chapter.’” w “Snowbound” lecture & book-signing by photographer Lisa M.

Earlier this fall, visiting a friend in the hospital, I was greeted in the central lobby of the contemporary building by familiar black and white photographs of live oaks arching over river banks, limbs reaching down toward the water’s smooth surface. Empty wooden rowboats pulled up onto the mud alongside the saltmarsh. These images by Savannah photographer Jack Leigh were a welcomed sight, a flash of recognition grounding me to home in an environment that otherwise could have been Anywhere USA. Many Savannahians know the Jack Leigh story—starting his photography career in the early 1970’s after formal instruction at University of Georgia, his reputation growing over the decades for capturing the essence of the often unseen South. The success of Leigh’s 1993 photo on the cover of “the book” — Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil — led circuitously to the opening of the Jack Leigh Gallery on the corner of Oglethorpe Avenue and Abercorn Street. Originally Leigh’s studio, the low-ceilinged nook with its wall of windows served as exhibit space for the work of Leigh and

for a team of protégés, some of whom staffed the gallery. When Leigh died in 2004, the gallery continued as he wished it to, under the direction of gallery manager Susan Laney and master printer Ben Beasley. In those years, the gallery has continued to sell Leigh’s work and to represent artists trained or apprenticed by him, including Laney, Beasley, and Savannah native Lisa M. Robinson, who first took photography from Leigh while in high school. For Jack Leigh Gallery, 2007 has been “times three the best financial year we’ve ever had,” said Laney last week, in a breather from her preparation for the gallery’s last show, which runs December 1 through 14. “We’d rather go out on top.” The exhibit space is closing at the end of the year, but to label this show as “final” seems to be a misnomer. For starters, the gallery is sponsoring a lecture at the Jepson this Thursday by Robinson, to launch Snowbound, her first book of photography. “It was Jack who recognized that this body of work would comprise my first book,” said Robinson last week. “In February 2003 I showed the images to Jack and Susan [Laney]. He wrote on a piece of paper that morning, ‘Snowbound. Photographs by Lisa Robinson.’” “With the gallery wanting to do something with the book, it was an obvious beginning point for the tour for me, it represents the culmination of the project in a re-

Tracks of her tears S

he’s a flatlander, I’m a city boy, and we’re in the mountains. Talk about a couple of fish out of the water. Generally, we vacation at the beach, but this year we did something different. My older sister has a chalet on a mountainside in North Carolina that everybody in the family has visited except us. It was our time. Long story short, we got out of town and headed uphill. I’m scared of the mountains. I don’t like the twists and turns, don’t like not knowing what’s around the corner. Can’t seem to get my bearings or confidence as I barrel up and down the uncertain roads. I don’t find them exhilarating, rather I find them disconcerting. Once we established base camp at my sister Barbara’s, we made daily expeditions exploring the countryside. Minnehaha Falls is our destination today. About a 40-minute or two beer drive from where we are staying. There are many betteradvertised sites, but a local recommended this, and we are both suckers for waterfalls, so let’s go. Parked the car and had to walk about ¾ of a mile up this trail. I’m in shape, she’s not. So I guide her, I prod her, and I try to make a track that she can easily follow. She’s my girl and I’ll do anything I need to do to allow her to share this moment with me. It’s hot and we are sweaty when we finally come out on the clearing at the base of the falls. There’s a roar, a cool breeze, and a peacefulness that is palatable. We’ve arrived. We rest and take a few photos and generally enjoy the small triumph of making the hike to be able to experience such a beautiful sight. We’ve earned the coolness and tranquility of this wonderful place. I am one of the safest most conservative people you would ever venture to meet. That said, let me tell you what I did. I don’t know how tall this falls was, pretty tall would be my best guess. Anyway, I could see a path leading up the right side of the falls; people had climbed up there before me. I left my baby at the base and started across the water on dry rocks to ascend on the other side. I’m hearing protests as I go, unheeded by me on this day I continued. Twenty minutes and much effort later I climbed out on the top, inched slowly out on the rocks and looked down on a glori-

ous site. Clearly, I shouldn’t have done it, I was warned by the signs not to do it, it was totally out of character, but guess what? I did it. Took some photos while I was up there, and then worked my way painstakingly back down. Found my girl crying at the bottom when I arrived. She was scared. She was shook. She saw her life without me and she felt alone. She had me falling, she had me hurt, and she had herself all alone. It’s so nice to be loved. It is such a warm and satisfying feeling. It gives meaning to my life. I’m sorry it took some cockamamie stunt like the one I pulled off to get her to express herself, but I’m not sorry I did it and I’m not sorry she felt as she did. I would never intentionally cause anybody pain, it’s just not me. I’m far too sensitive myself. My motive for climbing that falls wasn’t to solicit this kind of response or emotion, matter of fact my motive was far less. I had a camera, there was a path, it was a rare combination of challenge meets beauty. So what was my payback? A tough old broad who will not give me an inch is reduced to a sniveling gal who saw her future and her man taken from her. She saw the potential for loss, and realized the value of what she possessed. I didn’t and do not take any sadistic pleasure from that. She possesses me and I’m thankful for it. Is there any better feeling in life than to be loved? Is there any other reason to live? If we cannot acknowledge our existence by the love that we receive, what else is there? When you realize you are loved, I believe you appreciate your place in this life. You understand that what you are and what you have done has meaning for someone besides yourself, and that in itself legitimizes your existence. You have served a purpose. What more can we expect out of our lives than to serve a purpose? We have affected someone else. We have left some mark however insignificant it is on someone else in the world. Our existence has mattered. I made someone cry today. It’s not something I am happy or proud of, but I’m glad for both of us that it happened. w E-mail Tom at tparris@bellsouth.net

from recent Savannah/Chatham Police incident reports

Back Door Man

• Two women began fighting after one accused the other of stealing money from her. An officer arrived to find the two women had already been separated. The first woman told the officer she had been at her aunt’s house to wash some clothes. The second woman came in and they began arguing. The first woman said she accused the other of stealing from her, but the second woman told the officer that the argument began because the first woman was talking loudly on her telephone. The first woman said the second came out to the front porch and punched her in the mouth, causing a minor laceration and swelling to her upper lip. She said she defended herself, resulting in the fight. The second woman said the first came from behind her and, for no reason, hit her in the head with a child’s plastic golf club and started pulling her hair. Human hair was found in front of the house, lying next to one of the women’s cars. Although both women sustained injuries, both refused treatment by EMS. • While an officer was patrolling the area of 33rd and Montgomery streets, a man pulled out in front of the patrol vehicle on a bicycle. TThe man was stopped, and seemed very jittery when he was questioned. The man’s eyes were glassy, he was sweating profusely and he appeared very nervous. He denied drinking alcohol or being under the influence of any drugs. He gave the officer consent to search his person and belongings, which were in a basket on the front of the bicycle. While conducting the search, the officer found a small plastic bag containing two off-white rock-like substances and a glass crack pipe, which was warm to the touch. The man was cited for failing to stop at the stop sign and arrested for possession of a controlled substance and a drug-related

object. The off-white substance tested positive for cocaine. • A nurse at a Reynolds Street medical office told police that after lunch, she changed her clothes in the locker room behind the nurse’s station and placed $15 in her pants pocket. When she was leaving work that night, she noticed the money was missing. A student nurse said the same thing had happened to her and that $4 had been taken from clothing she had in her book bag. The women said the clothing is kept in the locker room unsecured because there is no place for them to be secured. The unit clerk said that she can see who comes and goes to the locker room because she’s located at the nurse’s station. She said she went into the locker room and noticed the suspect going through some bags. She said she believes she startled the suspect because the woman stopped going through the bags when she walked in. The security director said a similar incident had occurred where the suspect was seen in the locker room at the time cash was taken.

• A student at a Ferguson Avenue school sustained a broken leg after a second student jumped on him. Both students were walking on school grounds when the incident occurred. A teacher told the officer the incident was considered an accident and not an attack on the injured student. According to another student who was walking with the injured boy at the time the incident occurred, the second boy jumped on the first in a piggyback manner, and both fell to the ground. The second boy fell on top of the first and the apparent shift of weight and impact of falling caused the broken leg. The witness said nothing was said before or after the incident to suggest it was an attack. The witness also said he is unaware of any problems between the two students. w

A man and his wife returned to the Pine Valley Road house they are renovating to find the back door wide open. They discovered that a television and some wine glasses were missing, and food had been taken from the freezer. The trash can had been dumped onto the kitchen floor, and feces were in the toilet. Another television had been taken from the front room, but it was found sitting in the middle of the floor. The man told police no one lives in the house. He said he and his wife had left the house earlier in the day to go to a doctor’s appointment. The painter who has been doing work for them told them he had seen a man in a green car pull up to the back of the house and go inside, but thought it was just a member of the family.

Fine Points of the Law

(1) The Wisconsin Supreme Court ruled in October that attorney Michael Inglimo did not violate a state regulation that bars a lawyer from having sex “with a current client”: Inglimo had sex with a client’s girlfriend during a three-way session, but according to the judges, the regulation bans only direct sex with the client. (However, the court suspended Inglimo’s license based on other grounds.) (2) Philadelphia Municipal Judge Teresa Carr Deni outraged women’s activists and the local bar association in October when she dismissed rape charges against four men who had sex with a prostitute at gunpoint. Because the woman had initially agreed to a business proposition, said the judge, the men should properly be charged with “armed robbery” for “theft of services.” Said Deni, “She consented, and she didn’t get paid.”

Science on the Cutting Edge

Babies Out of Order: (1) Amelia Spence, 29, gave birth in Glasgow, Scotland, in October to two babies, one just minutes before the other, but they were not twins. The apparently super-fertile Spence, though on contraceptive pills, conceived twice in a three-week period with eggs from successive monthly cycles (“superfetation”). (2) In Cary, N.C., a woman gave birth to twins early in the morning of Nov. 4, one at 1:32 a.m. and the other 34 minutes later, at 1:06 a.m. (after Daylight-Saving Time ended).

Injudicious Judges

Pennsylvania Superior Court judge Michael Thomas Joyce, 58, was indicted in August for fraud in connection with $440,000 he received after his car was nudged (at 5 mph) in a 2001 accident. Joyce claimed that he was in such neck and back

pain as to be prevented from certain activities such as holding a coffee cup, but prosecutors said he not only played golf frequently after that but went scuba diving, renewed his scuba instructor’s license, went inline skating, and went through private pilot training and licensing (50 flights). In testimony at his divorce hearing (according to transcripts obtained by KUSATV), federal judge Edward Nottingham admitted that he had visited strip clubs in Denver, and on two consecutive nights had run up tabs of over $3,000, but that he didn’t know what else happened those nights because he was too drunk. Judge Nottingham’s behavior was not courtroom-related, but the charge against Cincinnati Municipal Court judge Ted Berry in July was. Berry had just sentenced Ivan Boykins to 30 days in jail, provoking Boykins to shout, “F--- you,” which prompted a return “F--- you” from Judge Berry. (The bar association’s response has not been reported.)

Least Competent People

In November, Britain’s new weatherthemed Cool Cash lottery game was canceled after one day because too many players failed to understand the rules. Each card had a visible temperature and a temperature to be scratched off, and the purchaser would win if the scratched-off temperature was “lower” than the visible one. Officials said they had received “dozens” of complaints from players who could not understand why, for example, minus-5 is not a lower temperature than minus-6.

Recurring Themes

(1) Once again, someone found a suspected live explosive on his property, put it in his car, and took it to the local police station (this time, a hand grenade, in Devon, England, in November). (For the record, emergency personnel would rather be told about an explosive than have it brought into their building.) (2) Once again, a motorist casually traveling on a highway had his vehicle crushed by an airborne cow (this time, near Manson, Wash., in November). The 600-pound cow had fallen off a cliff, totaling the minivan but not injuring the driver, who was quoted in an Associated Press dispatch saying repeatedly, “I don’t believe this.”

Feuds

(1) The Catholic archbishop overseeing a convent near Bari, Italy, closed it down in August after the mother superior was attacked and beaten by her two nuns, who were angry at her authoritarian ways. (2) Exparishioner Angel Llavano, who had left a phone message for Father Luis Alfredo Rios criticizing one of his homilies, filed a defamation of character lawsuit in September after Father Rios retaliated by denouncing him in front of the Crystal Lake, Ill., congregation. Asked Rios (perhaps rhetorically), “Should we send (Llavano) to hell or to another parish?” w

The WHO has ruled out the possibility that the illness is due to a virus since it appears not to be transmitted from one person to another. Investigators believe the outbreak, which began in early October in Cacuaco, north of the capital of Luanda, is due to some kind of toxic exposure.

‘Hot Wire’ Barrier

Wildlife authorities in northeastern India have begun using the world’s hottest-tasting chili peppers to keep wild elephants from trampling human settlements and devouring crops. Forest rangers in Assam state initially tried electric fences to provide protection, but had to try another “hot wire” method after those efforts failed to keep the marauding pachyderms at bay. Rope barriers smeared with grease and Bhut Jolokia pepper oil, stretched around settlements bordering the forest, appear to be doing the trick. “The grease acts as a waterproof. The moment the elephants make contact with the rope it causes irritation to the animals,” said Assam’s forest and wildlife minister Rockybul Hussain. Destruction of habitat is forcing many of Assam’s estimated 5,000 elephants into populated areas. w

2nd Annual Help Save One of Our Own Chili Cook-Off

Last year was the first time that area poprock band Liquid Ginger had thrown an outdoor benefit for a local person in need, and to call the weather was uncooperative would itself be charitable. “It was 50 degrees and pouring rain,” recalls vocalist and organizer Ginger Fawcett. “But, we sold out of chili and raised $7,000! This year it’s supposed to be sunny and 70, so we hope for much more.” The recipient of all this goodwill? 39year-old JCB employee David Sisk, who travels to the Mayo Clinic for treatment for primary pulmonary hypertension and may face heart and lung transplants. It’s free to listen to the music by mainstream local acts like LG, young reggae-influenced soul singer/guitarist Tubby Love, southern rock and country band Hazzard County (feat. the Courtenay Bros.), acoustic roots-rockers Two Path Road, as well as the slick, Greenville, S.C. modern rock/hiphop trio EPDMK. The 501C-3 nonprofit roganization generates money from the 12 flag football teams registering to compete and the restaurants in the Chili Cook-Off, as well as from sales of hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken fingers and fries, plus drinks (Budweiser and Coke products) — all donated by Kroger, Spanky’s, Roger Wood and the beverage distributors. There will also be a raffle for tons of prizes, T-shirts, face painting for kids, etc... “One thing I love about Savannah,” says Fawcett, “is how giving people are.” “There are so many worthwhile events going on that day downtown. We’re all in this together, and if people tire of one event, they can move on to the next.” Sat., 11 am-6 pm, Forsyth Park. w

The Ellis Square Merchants Association formed in the wake of the massive demolition and construction project adjacent to City Market which aims to restore one of Savannah’s original “lost squares.” With hundreds of nearby parking spaces eliminated overnight, and foot traffic impeded, a few business owners in the immediate vicinity banded together in 2006 to collectively promote their unique offerings. Last December’s inaugural Silent Auction to benefit the Backus Childrens Hospital saw the organization welcome over 40 merchants in the general vicinity of Barnard and Broughton Streets into their fold for an innovative (if logistically daunting) charitable promotion: an ambitious, family-oriented strolling, shopping and dining experience featuring live outdoor entertainment from a local jazz quartet — with all proceeds going to a worthy local cause. This year, the group (which has grown to include over 50 merchants) has thrown caution to the wind, increased the scope and length of the event, added more live music, and set their fiscal goals higher. “We have the full Equinox Jazz Orchestra, songwriter Lauren Lapointe, The Asbury Handbell Choir, the First African Baptist Choir and Memorial’s Feel Better Singers,” says association President Michael Meeks. “It’s now an all-day event, so people have time to bid on everything as well as kick back and enjoy the music.” Since it is also “1st Saturday” on River St., and the staging area and kick-off for this event doubles as the finish line for the city’s Christmas Parade, Meeks views this benefit as “the grand finale of them all.” “Last year, we raised $6,000 — every penny of that for Backus,” Meeks says, adding: “We’d like to raise $10,000 this year.” As folks stroll from shop to shop, investigating the thousands of dollars worth of items and services up for bids (and hopefully doing some holiday gift shopping as well!), they are encouraged to relax. “We’re blocking traffic from Barnard to Bryan and from Jefferson to Whitaker,” explains Meeks. “We’ll have tables and chairs set up in the streets like a European-styled gathering. People can get take-out from nearby restaurants and eat outdoors while listening to the live music.” Meeks admits there are no contingency plans in the event of inclement weather. “We can’t repeat it. It’s rain or shine. We just keep praying for a nice day!” Local celebrity Paula Deen’s sons Bobby and Jamie will be on hand after their stint as Grand Marshals in the Christmas Parade, as

However, those who live for the kind of passionate, mesmerizing connections that can only be made between attentive audiences and piercing, otherworldly talents should make a beeline to this gig.

Along with rock, pop and Americana acts like The Winter Sounds, The Whigs, Modern Skirts and Ken Will Morton, these truly buzz-worthy psychedelic alt.rockers (with a strong pop sensibility) are helping to redefine and push the famed Athens underground music scene into the 21st Century. Simultaneously dreamy and straightforward, they turned their back on a promising major label deal to become the flagship band of the newly reconstituted ultra-indie hometown Kindercore imprint (previously home to such lauded, left-of-center artists as Japancakes, Dressy Bessy and Of Montreal). Acknowledged influences such as The Magnetic Fields and Belle & Sebastian shine through in their recorded work. You can hear a full gig from this past January online at www.gpb.org/public/radio/ index.jsp?pcode=streaming) With rising local electro-pop act Unsolved Mysteries (whose quirky, synth-heavy efforts deserve more notoriety).

elles is a play that tells the story of the six Walker sisters, who grew up in Memphis. Over the years, they have moved away and now all six are scattered across the country. The play will be presented Nov. 30 through Dec. 2 by the Armstrong Atlantic State University Masquers. Each sister has her own distinct personality, which audiences get to explore because they keep in touch by telephone. The oldest, Peggy, keeps the others updated about their mother’s illnesses. The second, Aneece, is a bitter alcoholic. Roseann is the wife of a minister -- who is in the process of leaving her. Audrey is the eccentric sister, a ventriloquist, while Sherry has gone New Age and wants everyone to start calling her “Dust.” Finally, there’s Paige, the youngest, who is looking for a man. Director Michelle Fekete is a senior at Armstrong who is majoring in theater and will graduate next December. She chose the play not only because it was written by a Southern playwright, but also because she thinks it will speak to

audience members. “The playwright, Mark Dunn, calls it ‘a play in two acts and 45 phone calls,’” Fekete says. “We have a lot of phone conversations. It was definitely a challenge because everyone is on the phone. We don’t get the luxury of showing people’s connections through interactions.” That’s because of the distance between the sisters. “One might be in Atlanta, while the other is in Seattle,” Fekete says. While the play is a comedy, it does explore some difficult, even tragic, moments in the sisters’ lives. “They’ve all grown up in the same house, and gone through the same things,” Fekete says. “Each sister takes a different approach to how she handles life.” There are only six characters in the play, and the sisters are on stage at all times. “Each one has her own section she must stay in,” Fekete says. “I was a little concerned about that at first,” she says. “You must keep the audience’s attention. But it is a really fastpaced show.” Six AASU students have been cast in the show. They are Barbara Erwin, continued on page 26

Danielle Conti, Hallie Mosley, Whitney Williamson, Witney Chappell and Samantha Noon. The sisters don’t only talk to each other, they also talk to friends. “You don’t hear the other person’s part of the conversation,” Fekete says. “But you know what they’re saying by the characters’ reactions.” The audience learns about each of the sisters through her conversations with others. “They also talk about each other, and you learn even more,” Fekete says. “You find out more about one sister through conversations between two other sisters.” Each sister has something unusual or quirky about her, Fekete says. “And each of them have a good quality about them,” she says. “The audience members will each have a sister that they just love.” The play will be presented at the Armstrong Center, a somewhat unusual location. The Masquers’ home, Jenkins Theater, is undergoing a 12-month total renovation. At first, plans outlined last spring projected that the troupe would have to vacate Jenkins before the start of fall semester. However, the closure was delayed just long enough to allow the Masquers to present a few performances there. The troupe is expected to move into new temporary headquarters at the AASU Chinese Theater, a former Chinese restaurant located in the Armstrong Center. However, preparations to that space haven’t been completed, so Belles will be presented in a meeting suite at Armstrong Center. “The space is great, but there’s going to be limited seating,” Fekete says. “We had always intended that it would be a black box show, so I already knew there would be limited seating.” Fekete has appeared in many Masquers productions. “I am a Southern girl, born and raised in the Lowcountry of South Carolina,” she says. At the age of 13, Fekete got a part in Dames at Sea. “I thought, ‘I want to do this,’”

she says. “Then I realized I couldn’t sing. I knew I should realize my limits.” Fekete grew up watching movies and television. When she was 18 and 19, she appeared in productions for CBS and NBC. “I got to be a stand-in,” Fekete says. “I thought, ‘This is the life.’ But then I got to be an extra and hated it.” Fekete was cast in other productions. “I never got the lead,” she says. “I always got a small part. It’s really difficult to get cast when you have hundreds of people trying out for the same role.” At AASU, Fekete has played the lead, she’s directed, and been involved in all aspects of theater. “That’s the great thing about Armstrong,” she says. “Everyone has the opportunity to perform, work on the tech side, design or direct. I love it all. I’m just as happy off-stage as I am on stage.” Because of her role in How I Learned to Drive, Fekete has been nominated to attend the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival, where she will compete with other college theater majors from around the country. “Nothing is set in stone,” Fekete says. “I’d love to go to graduate school. I have every intention of keeping on auditioning and performing. I’m married and have a child, and that takes precedence, but I’ll always be involved in theater.” Fekete hopes Belles does well. “Everyone has put so much effort into it that we want everyone to come out and see it,” she says. “There are some great, funny moments so many women can relate to,” Fekete says. “It has a great story with a very serious meaning. It’s about family, forgiveness and all the stuff families go through. You don’t have to have a sister to enjoy this show.” w The AASU Masquers will present Belles Nov. 29 and 30 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 1 at 3 p.m. in the Armstrong Center Meeting Suite. General admission is $8. Call 927-5381 weekdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Christmas story. “It was very small, and we did it in a worship service many years ago,” she says. “When I was appointed here, there were some very talented people here. I wanted to do something to showcase their talent, so I enlarged that earlier story.” Church members are performing the roles and designing and making sets, costumes and lighting. “We’ re trying to get the word out that we’re doing this,” Drake says. “It’s part of our mission. All proceeds will go to mission work.” The production is for audience members of all ages, young and the young-at-heart. “It lasts an hour and 15 minutes,” Drake says, so it won’t tax a young child’s patience. When the story opens, the book, star and swaddling cloth are stored in a church’s attic. Ladies from the church’s altar guild are beginning to set out Christmas decorations. “One has been in the attic, and it was a mess,” Drake says. “They don’t want to put out the Christmas decorations. “They sing a song, ‘Who’s going to notice if we take a year off?’ They make one more trip to the attic. In the process, they hear noises and get scared.” The ladies also awaken the sleeping storybook, who at first can’t remember anything. “The star awakens the angel and the swaddling cloth,” Drake says.

“They begin helping the storybook find the story. In the meantime, the altar guild meets with the pastor about a family in need. They realize the importance of helping others and decide to set out the Christmas decorations.” The storybook gradually begins remembering the story, which is about the true story of Christmas. “He knows why the star, angel and swaddling cloth are there, but asks, ‘Why am I here?’” Drake says. The storybook can only remember a Bible verse, but in the end, remembers the whole story. Something good also happens to the angel, star and swaddling cloth, but we’re not about to spoil the entire story. Suffice it to say the ladies of the altar guild return to the attic and notice the decorations. “The last phrase is, ‘We just needed a light,’” Drake says. “The music is lively and from various musical genres,” she says. “It’s everything from boogie woogie to gospel.” A lively sense of humor is revealed, too. At one point, the characters sing, “We are more than Styrofoam, more than glitter and gold.” “Everyone is very excited,” Drake says. “Our music director, Les Taylor, does theater in Savannah. Some of the kids had been wanting to do a musical. “There will be four daytime performances,” she says. “We want children to come out, as well as older people who might not want to come at night.” w A musical production, The Christmas Storybook, will be presented Nov. 29 and 30 at 7:30 p.m., Dec. 1 at 1 and 3 p.m. and Dec. 2 at 3 and 5 p.m. at Wesley Oak United Methodist Church, located at the corner of East Victory Drive and Mechanics Street in Thunderbolt.

THE MIST  The Mist marks writer-director Frank Darabont’s third adaptation of a Stephen King property, and because he’s not shooting for Oscar gold this time around (the previous titles were the reasonably enjoyable but grotesquely overrated pair, The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile), he’s able to ease up on the pedal of self-importance and deliver an old-fashioned “B”- style genre flick. But even here, Darabont hasn’t completely abandoned his high-minded ideas, meaning that The Mist manages to offer some accurate evaluations of human nature in between all the expected bloodletting. Owing a nod or two in the direction of John Carpenter’s The Fog, this concerns itself with a group of people who, in the aftermath of a horrific storm, are gathered at the local supermarket stocking up on emergency rations when a mysterious mist envelops the entire area. It soon becomes clear that something evil resides in the fog — oh, about the time that a bag boy gets shredded by a monstrous tentacle beyond anything witnessed in 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea — and the shoppers wisely decide that they should remain indoors rather than venture out into the parking lot. It’s here that Darabont’s script (adapted from King’s short story) reveals its cynical roots, as Mrs. Carmody (Marcia Gay Harden), a religious zealot certain that the creatures outside are God’s final solution in response to humankind’s litany of sins, converts many of the frightened survivors to her mode of thinking, a dangerous path that eventually leads to a Jim Jones-like environment and at least one human sacrifice. Religious nutjobs are usually tiresome (and rather benign) characters brought in to add some superficial tension, but propelled by Harden’s scary performance, Mrs. Carmody is a genuine threat, and she validates Darabont’s contention that times of crisis are as likely to turn people against each other as they are to unite them against a common enemy. Darabont’s pessimism extends to other areas of the script, to favorable (i.e. less predictable) advantage: It’s not always easy to figure out who will survive and who won’t, and the ending (altered from King’s original) will keep audience members’ tongues wagging as they exit into the parking lot — one, I hasten to add, hopefully not blanketed by a similarly impenetrable mist.

I’m Not There1/2 It wasn’t necessary to be a Beatles fan to enjoy Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe, and it’s not required to be a Bob Dylan devotee to appreciate I’m Not There. Of course, some familiarity with the life and times (and personas) of the former Robert Zimmerman can’t hurt, but equally integral to one’s appreciation of Todd Haynes’ latest film is a willingness to allow the standard screen biopic to push through all the sides of that

ever-confining envelope. Having said that, it also should be noted that Haynes (whose Douglas Sirk homage Far From Heaven was the best film of 2002) and co-writer Oren Moverman have crafted a motion picture that’s as infuriating as it is inventive, hindered by a strain of affectation (some would say pretentiousness) that turns entire sections into a tough slog. Given Dylan’s status as a musical giant, it’s not surprising that Haynes hired six different performers to play him. Or, rather, six different performers

play variations of him (none are named Bob Dylan), each representing the man at different stages in his life. We first meet him as the self-named Woody Guthrie (Marcus Carl Franklin), a black boy who rides the rails in 1959, reaching back into American’s recent past for his material. We also see Dylan incarnated as Greenwich Village mainstay Jack (Christian Bale), unhappily married actor Robbie (Heath Ledger), Old West cowboy Billy (Richard Gere), poet Arthur Rimbaud (Ben Whishaw), and folk-rock revolutionary

Jude Quinn (Cate Blanchett, achieving high scores in both appearance and attitude). Like Taymor, Haynes pays tribute not only to his subject (some scenes include lyrics like “Just like a woman” spoken as dialogue) but to music’s relationship with cinema: Don’t Look Back and Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid are referenced, of course, but so is A Hard Day’s Night (with Blanchett’s Jude playfully wrestling in the grass with The Beatles). But while Haynes admirably doesn’t pretend to “know” the real Bob Dylan, neither does his movie suggest any possible insights, preferring to merely offer clever riffs on the icon’s established reputation. A second showing would doubtless reveal more of Haynes’ intentions, but a solitary viewing leaves too much blowin’ in the wind.

No Country for Old Men



The Coen Brothers have always been known for the ease with which they’ve jumped from genre to genre — screwball comedy with Raising Arizona, gangster saga with Miller’s Crossing, neo-film noir with Blood Simple, etc. — but with their superb new picture, No Country for Old Men, they seem to be tapping from various wells at once. Certainly, their adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s novel smacks of a contemporary Western through its wide-open settings and signals a crime thriller via its “law and disorder” plotline. But may I add the classification of monster movie to the mix? That might seem like a stretch, but as I watched Javier Bardem’s seemingly unstoppable Anton Chigurh shuffle his way through the picture, killing left and right without remorse, I realized that it’s been a looong time since I’ve seen such an unsettling creature on the screen. Chigurh is just one of the several fascinating characters occupying screen time in a delirious drama that in its finest moments echoes such classics as Psycho, Touch of Evil and Chinatown, not only in its intricate and unpredictable plot structure but also in its look at an immoral world in which chance and fate battle for the upper hand and in which evil is as tangible a presence as sticks and stones. Chigurh, who finds it easier to murder an innocent bystander than to crack a smile, is described by another character as operating by his own set of principles, and only in a topsy-turvy world could a fiend such as this be described as principled — and, more disturbingly, possibly even deserve the designation. Chigurh spends the film, set in 1980 Texas, on the trail of Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin), a cowboy who stumbles upon the aftermath of a drug deal gone wrong in the desert (lots of guns, lots of spilled blood, lots continued on page 32

If the Hasbro toy company elects to issue an updated version of its popular board game Clue, it can dispense with Colonel Mustard in the billiard room with the lead pipe as one of the murder scenarios. Readily available to replace it is Mr. Magorium in the wonder emporium with the gag reflex. Suffering from a fatal attack of the “cutes,” this family-aimed fizzle marks the directorial debut of Zach Helm, who caught everyone’s attention last year with his innovative script for Stranger Than Fiction. Helm’s screenplay here, though, is as lackadaisical as his previous one was inspired, with Dustin Hoffman cast as a kindly 243-yearold man who decides it’s time for him to graciously leave this earth (his reason being that he’s down to his last pair of comfortable shoes). He hopes to leave his magical toy store in the care of his assistant Mahoney (Natalie Portman), but she doesn’t think she can handle the responsibility, even with the shop’s workaholic accountant (Jason Bateman) and its best customer, a lonely little boy (Zach Mills) with a penchant for hats, around to assist her. The G-rated film combines Peter Pan’s message — the whole “Clap your hands if you believe in magic” spiel — with Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’s stuffed-to-the-gills set design, but with no real dramatic tension (where’s Kevin Spacey as an obvious villain when you really need him?) and a visually drab shop that re-

mains cluttered rather than captivating, the end result is a bland confection that features an atypically bad Portman performance. And, perhaps most critically, with no playthings on the order of Buzz or Woody to enliven events, this proves to be one toy story that’s easy to skip.

But a sum that large isn’t about to be written off by the crime bosses, and so here comes Chigurh (working for an outfit independent from the Mexican dealers) to take care of business. The cat-and-mouse chase between Chigurh and Moss is enough to propel any standard narrative, yet tossed into the mix is Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones), a weary sheriff who, baffled and deflated by the wickedness that has come to define his country, nevertheless trudges from crime scene to crime scene, hoping to save Moss and stop Chigurh. As we’ve come to expect from a Coens feature, interesting players can be found around every corner — there’s also Moss’ baby-faced wife (Kelly MacDonald), kept in the dark by a husband whose increasingly frantic behavior threatens to put both of them at risk, and Carson Wells (Woody Harrelson), a jocular bounty hunter who functions as a walking encyclopedia when it comes to detailing Chigurh’s crimes. All of the performances are exceptional, yet this is clearly Bardem’s picture. So magnetic and full of life in his Oscar-nominated turn in Before Night Falls, he takes the opposite stance here, portraying Chigurh as an emotionally withdrawn individual whose only defining trait (outside of his imaginative choice of weapon) is the whimsical manner in which he allows a potential victim the opportunity a coin toss to decide their fate.

Beowulf 

Director Robert Zemeckis, whose 2004 The Polar Express felt like an animated feature that had been embalmed, again employs the “performance capture” technique (or “digitally enhanced live-action,” per the press notes) with far greater success, overlaying real actors with a cartoon sheen and placing them in the middle of a CGI landscape. In 2D, which is how the film is being shown in most theaters nationally, this runs the risk of looking as soulless as many other CGI works, but in 3D (presented only at select venues), it results in a positively astonishing experience. Tossed coins roll directly toward the camera, spears poke directly out at audience members, and even an animated Angelina Jolie’s, umm, assets seem more pronounced than usual. Based on the ancient poem, a staple of most school curriculums, the script by fantasy author Neil Gaiman and Pulp Fiction co-writer Roger Avary doesn’t always match the movie’s visual splendor (burp and piss scenes show that the makers are clearly hoping to attract the fanboy crowd), but their modifications to the ancient text are more often than not respectful. After the gruesome monster Grendel (voiced, or, more accurately, snarled by Crispin Glover) wreaks havoc on the castle of King Hrothgar (Anthony Hopkins) and his followers, the heroic (and boastful) Beowulf (Ray Winstone) arrives to save the day. Yet he finds himself not only having to

confront Grendel but also the misshapen creature’s mother (Jolie), envisioned here as a seductress with the power to lead any noble warrior astray.

Enchanted 1/2

It’s a nice touch having Julie Andrews serve as (unseen) narrator for the bookend sequences in Walt Disney’s Enchanted. Andrews, of course, played the title nanny in the studio’s Mary Poppins, which contains the famous phrase “practically perfect in every way.” And I can’t think of any better way to describe Amy Adams’ performance as Giselle, the animated damsel who doesn’t long to be a real girl but becomes one anyway. Enchanted begins in the style of the classic Disney toon flicks of yore, with the beautiful Giselle, at one with nature and its furry inhabitants, longing for “true love’s kiss” from the lips of a handsome prince. She gets her wish when she meets Prince Edward, but his scheming stepmother Queen Narissa, not wanting to relinquish the throne, banishes Giselle to a faraway land, which, it turns out, is our own New York City. Now flesh and blood, Giselle turns to a stranger, a buttoned-up divorce lawyer (Patrick Dempsey), to help her survive in this bewildering city; meanwhile, others arrive in the Big Apple in pursuit of Giselle, including Edward (James Marsden) and the evil Queen (Susan Sarandon).

August Rush 1/2

The sound of music comes alive in August Rush, a charming family film that pushes the always-welcome message that the arts — in this case, music — can inform and enhance our lives, leading us to places we’ve never been and allowing us to establish meaningful contacts with other like-minded people. There’s no denying that the movie, which often plays like Oliver Twist as conceived by the dance troupe Stomp, is sweet and heartfelt and full of passion. But there’s also no denying that it’s clunky, haphazard and not especially well-written or efficiently directed. If you’ve seen the trailer, which seems to go out of its way to reveal every important scene (even the climax), then you already know that August Rush is the story of Evan Taylor (Freddie Highmore), an orphan whose parents — a cellist (Keri Russell) and a guitarist (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) — don’t even know he exists (Mom was told by her controlling father that he died during childbirth). But young Evan is determined to find his parents, and he believes that through music they can be reunited; i.e. that they’ll be able to magically hear him and locate him. Thus, he escapes from the orphanage, making his way to New York City and falling in with a band of street kids working for a Fagin-like musician-promoter (Robin Williams). That Williams’ character turns out to be a controlling bully is one of the picture’s few surprises; everything else

falls neatly into place, thanks to a script that needs about 128 coincidences to retain its forward momentum. The best way to enjoy August Rush, then, is to accept it completely as a fantasy; applying any sense of realism to any of its scenes might cause one’s head to explode.

Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead 

Lions for Lambs  Say this for Hollywood: At least it’s trying to inject some semblance of sane debate into the Iraq War debacle. But do they have to be so ineffectual? On the heels of Rendition comes Lions For Lambs, another drama whose noble aspirations are bungled by hamfisted storytelling. Director Robert Redford uses three concurrent storylines to stir debate about what’s happening in our country and our world. In the first, newspaper reporter Janine Roth (Meryl Streep) interviews Senator Jasper Irving (Tom Cruise), tagged the future of the Republican Party, and learns that he has a strategy for winning the war on terror. In the second plot thread, two soldiers (Michael Pena and Derek Luke) involved in the senator’s master plan find themselves stranded on a snowy mountaintop in Afghanistan with enemy combatants closing in fast. And in the third story arc, college professor Stephen Malley (Redford) urges a promising if self-absorbed student

(Andrew Garfield) to get off his complacent behind and take a stand on issues that really matter.

What’s Playing Where

Unfortunately, Bee Movie is the same nondescript toon tale we’ve pretty much come to expect from any animated outlet not named Pixar. In this one, it’s Jerry Seinfeld contributing the vocals to the central character, a bee (named Barry) who, not content to work inside the hive until the day he dies, opts instead to see what’s going on in the world outside. He finds a New York City full of sound and fury, but also one that contains a sweet florist named Vanessa (Renee Zellweger). Breaking the long-standing rule that bees must never talk to humans, Barry makes contact with Vanessa, and the two strike up an unorthodox friendship (although Barry’s constant ogling of Vanessa makes it clear that she stirs strange sensations in his stinger). But Barry freaks out once he spots the rows of honey lining supermarket shelves: The bees Dan in Real Life, Bella, Why Did I work hard to make that honey, and he feels his, Get Married Dan in Real uh, “people” are being Life 1/2 exploited by humans.

Connect Savannah Nov. 28th, 2007 www.connectsavannah.com

If I’m still around at the age of 83, I doubt I’ll even be able to successfully navigate the remote control. Yet here’s the great veteran director Sidney Lumet (Twelve Angry Men, Dog Day Afternoon, The Verdict, and on and on and on), who, just two years after winning a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy, has made an impressive picture that’s earning him his best reviews in ages. And for at least three-quarters of the way, Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead deserves those stellar notices, as it shapes up to emerge as one of the best films of the year. But like a long-distance runner who miscalculates his own endurance level, it falters at the very end, with a two-pronged wrap-up that disappoints with both barrels. \Philip Seymour Hoffman heads the powerhouse cast as Andy, who, sensing that money might be the way to save his faltering marriage (to Marisa Tomei’s Gina), talks his weak-willed younger brother Hank (Ethan Hawke, never better) into taking part in the the robbery of a jewelry store — the one owned by their parents (Albert Finney and Rosemary Harris). Andy envisions it as one of those victimless crimes — use a toy gun, rob the place when there are no customers, the owners recoup their losses via insurance, etc. — but we all know what happens to the best-laid plans. At first glance, Before the Devil is one of those postMemento neo-noirs that believes it’s necessary to tell its story in a fragmented style that skips between past and present. But as played out, this technique isn’t merely for show but as an immediate way to pinpoint how each dire consequence is the result of several major and minor decisions.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): How much more can you hold? How much further are you willing to reach? How much bigger of a big picture can you open your mind to see? We will soon discover the answers to those questions, as well as several others that have to do with the themes of unbinding, emancipation, and the loss of inhibition. Judging from my reading of the astrological omens, I’d say the prospects are high for you to achieve a record-breaking state of relaxed and curious expansiveness. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Explore the off-limits area of your imagination, Taurus. I’m talking about that barely conscious part of your psyche where taboo fantasies and unruly notions have been steadily growing in the dark, accumulating the dark luminosity that all secret things do. If you consort with them now, you’ll be just in time to prevent them from becoming monstrous and reeling out of control. Even better, you’ll have a good chance of shaping them into resources that will serve you well. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I recommend that you read one of those ground-level books on intimacy skills, like *Relationships for Dummies* or *The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Romance.* It’s not that you are any dumber about these matters than the rest of us; it’s just that this is a favorable time for you to work harder than usual on boosting your Love IQ. Remedial efforts taken now will generate assistance and inspiration from unexpected sources. For best results, I suggest you consider keeping a journal about the lessons you’ll be asked to master. Entitle it something like “How I’m Becoming as Smart about Love as I Am about Everything Else in My Life.” CANCER (June 21-July 22): During the heyday of samurai culture, the Japanese word *tsuji-giri* meant “to try out a new sword on a passer- by.” After analyzing your astrological omens, Cancerian, I’m appealing to you not to commit the metaphorical equivalent of that

in the coming week. Here’s what I mean: You’ve got good reasons to use the metaphorical equivalent of a new sword, and you will wreak some constructive havoc if you direct your warrior attitude at the right targets. But if, on the other hand, you carelessly slice and dice passers-by and other innocents who don’t deserve it, you’ll waste that valuable resource and won’t correct the problems that have piqued your sense of injustice. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “When love is not madness, it is not love,” said Spanish dramatist Pedro Calderon de la Barca. But according to my analysis of the astrological omens, you will dramatically disprove that notion in the coming weeks, Leo. In fact, I’m betting that love will make you stark, raving sane. It will calm you down, heal a wound or two, improve your eyesight, help you understand yourself better, improve your digestion, and stimulate you to become you more tolerant and forgiving towards the entire world. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): First let me make it clear that I’m not predicting you will face difficult events in the coming days. Not at all. Second, I’m not saying you will have to endure more pain than usual. Third, I believe your suffering will be about average -- similar to what normal people bear in normal times. Having said all that, though, I encourage you to be aggressively exploratory toward the pain you feel. Have long talks with your murky fears. Gaze bravely into the parts of your life that make you sad. Why? Because it’s a favorable time to search for treasure that’s buried in the shadows -- to enhance your psychological health by dealing with what’s not so healthy. Recall Carl Jung’s wise words: “The foundation of all mental illness is an unwillingness to experience legitimate suffering.” LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Some years ago, in an advertisement designed to attract Spanish-speaking flyers, U.S.-based Braniff Airlines bragged about its leather seats with the phrase “viajar en cuero.” But that phrase

actually means “to travel stark naked,” not “to travel on leather.” The marketing department goofed. One of your main goals in the coming week, Libra, should be to prevent comparable outbreaks of the “lost in translation” syndrome. In fact, I urge you to act as an interpreter in situations where different worlds overlap. Be sure, for example, that extroverts and introverts understand each other. Facilitate the communication between cynics and optimists, morning people and night owls, caffeine addicts and pot heads, dreamers and realists. Be especially alert for misunderstandings that may arise during interactions between the right and left sides of your own brain. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Are you ready for your next big initiation? Probably not, but that’s OK. Your upgrade to the next level should go fine, even if you wobble and sputter for a while before and after. Just to let you know, there may be no single striking event to dramatize it for you. It could arrive almost secretly in a roller coaster dream, or announce itself with a warm rush of unfamiliar emotion while you’re in the middle of lunch. But however it insinuates its way into your awareness, Scorpio, it will open you to the possibility of seeing things that have been invisible to you before now. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “I need a strategy for bringing constructive change into my life on an ongoing basis,” a Sagittarian reader named Ursula wrote to me. “I want to figure out how to arrange for a never-ending series of gentle wake-up calls. When that happens, I will have mastered the sinewy magic of being permanently unstuck. I will have made it a habit to be highly alert and wildly responsive in the most relaxed ways possible. The world will look completely different to me then; reality itself will have mutated. I won’t cling to little scraps of hope that make me feel secure, but will instead be on the prowl for fresh challenges that constantly expand my love for life.” Ursula’s longing is a brilliant articulation of what I think all of you Sagittar-

ians should quest for in the coming weeks. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I think it’s a good idea for you to give up mediocre pleasures that drain your energy and diminish your intelligence. I also wish you would sacrifice irrelevant fantasies and deluded hopes that lead you away from your riveting dreams. On the other hand, I will rejoice if you commit yourself twice as intensely to the robust pleasures that refine your energy and boost your intelligence. And I will love it if you take three practical actions to supercharge one of your riveting dreams. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): What if I told you there will be 13 militantly helpful angels in gossamer armor standing guard around your bed every night, fighting off nightmares and ensuring that your dreams are blessed with floods of sublimely practical revelations? Would you regard what I said as a poetic metaphor, as the hyperbolic fantasy of a kooky astrology writer? Or is there a chance you’d take me literally? That you’d consider my vision to be the prophetic truth about an actual event? If it’s the latter, then I urge you to be aggressive about asking the angels for the very best mojo they can muster. This is one time when you have license to be greedy about tapping into the primal power of supernatural goodness. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This would be a good week for you to tell people’s fortunes at parties and help the police solve crimes with your clairvoyant abilities and read the minds of those you love in order to communicate with them better. What? You say you don’t have any psychic powers? That’s a dirty lie! You most certainly do. It may be true that your culture has brainwashed you into denying and suppressing them. But I assure you that they are lying there half- dormant, just waiting for you to believe in them and use them for everyone’s benefit. And this is an ideal time, astrologically speaking, for you to do just that. w
