THE BULLHORN

Arana Gulch Defenders Speak Up 0G83/<0@=19:30/<9/<2;716/3::3E7A

S

UPPOSE someone came to your home, demanded you give up your dining room for an important project, and said your family would still be able to live in the home but would have to accept the intrusion and the loss and just, well, get on with your life? Suppose when you asked why, the answer was to fight global warming? If you responded that there were already 211 miles of bike lanes in the county, three other east-west routes with one designed for expanded bike lanes and sidewalks (Murray Street) and a fourth that would offer 32 miles of unbroken bike trails and sacrificing your home was not needed to fight global warming, and the $4 million could be better spent in maintaining, enhancing and restoring those existing 211 miles of bike lanes and encouraging people to use them, would you be called unreasonable? Friends of Arana Gulch supports the Arana Gulch Master Plan (a well designed resource management tool), contingent on the removal of the Broadway-Brommer paved transportation project. Why? In declaring 2010 the International Year of Biodiversity, the United Nations said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Biodiversity, the variety of life on Earth, is essential to sustaining the living networks and systems that provide us all with health, wealth, food, fuel and the vital services our lives depend on. Human activity is causing the diversity of life on Earth to be lost at a greatly accelerated rate. These losses are irreversible, impoverish us all and damage the life support systems we rely on every day. And we can prevent them.â&#x20AC;? The pertinent question is not how many individual plants will be killed by construction of the paved bikeways routes (there are two, not just BroadwayBrommer). The question is how is habitat (think of it as your home) diminished by the project. Approving the Broadway-Brommer paved bikeway project risks reduction of the biodiversity of Arana Gulch and increases the risk of extinction of an endangered species. It will do this by bifurcating critical habitat of the endangered tarplant and all of its many associated coastal prairie species. The central question for the Coastal Commission is: will approval of a nonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x153;resource-dependentâ&#x20AC;? project in an Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Area that is also designated as â&#x20AC;&#x153;critical habitatâ&#x20AC;? of an endangered species be a violation of Sec. 30240 of the Coastal Act, as all opponents of BroadwayBrommer assert? The more pertinent questions for Santa Cruzans are: when is enough enough, and how much do we demand of the natural world for our pleasure, our entertainment, our recreation, our convenience? Can we be generous enough to let a small fragile place, in the middle of our urban city, be free of wide paved routes for the multitudes? Friends of Arana Gulch does not suggest excluding people from this small fragile place, since one can already walk or bicycle in Arana Gulch, accessing it from two directions. We are simply asking people to enjoy the place on its own terms. Regarding access for mobility impaired residents, Friends of Arana Gulch presented its Restoration Alternative, including such access, to the city almost five years ago. The city ignored our alternative. Fortunately, we do not need Broadway-Brommer to provide access for mobility-impaired visitors to Arana Gulch. Friends of Arana Gulch is a countywide association that counts bicyclists among its members. Jean Brocklebank is a biologist and grandmother who has worked for 15 years to protect Arana Gulch. Michael Lewis is an anthropologist and a daily bicycle commuter who supports practical and responsible bicycling.

Wallpower Elijah Pfotenhauer spreads the love of art one mural at a time AB=@G0G83AA71/:G=<A>6=B=A0G1C@B7A1/@B73@

C

USTOMERS coming into Santa Cruz Stoves & Fireplaces sounded alarm bells. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a kid outside the store with cans of paint,â&#x20AC;? they told employees worriedly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He looks like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to spray the walls!â&#x20AC;? Spray the walls is exactly what Elijah Pfotenhauer was intending to do. It was late 2006, and Pfotenhauer had already established himself as a talented Santa Cruz muralist with two other projects, one depicting dancers on the former Motion Pacific building on Front Street and another at the former Santa Cruz Teen Center on Laurel. The three-panel scene outside of Santa Cruz Stoves & Fireplaces would be his largest project to date. And some shoppers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to think of the young black man outside the store armed with spray paint and a vision. Nearly four years later, Pfotenhauer, 29, leans against the back of his truck across from the mural. Paint stains his jeans and the brown hoodie pulled over his head. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willowy and speaks in a voice so soft you have to lean in to hear him over the traffic. It all started when the shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner, Steve Vorhees, commissioned Pfotenhauer to paint a bamboo-themed mural in his home. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d seen Pfotenhauerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work, and the two men shared mutual acquaintances. While the two talked one day, Vorhees mentioned the Water Street building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, that place?â&#x20AC;? Pfotenhauer remembers saying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That building has a crazy wall. I always wanted to tag it at night with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the mural?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? So Vorhees suggested painting his store first. He wanted a mural depicting Vulcan, the Roman blacksmith god of fire and volcanoes, and a modern-day family around the hearth: fire past and fire present. The third scene, a mechanical fire-breathing dragon, was all Pfotenhauer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took it as three time periods,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;ancient, modern and futuristic, with my own spin on heat.â&#x20AC;? Lava f lows through the Roman godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tunnels and turns to fire in the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wood stove before moving through the vents surrounding the futuristic dragon. As with mostâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if not allâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;of Pfotenhauerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s murals, symbols abound. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fire as renewal,â&#x20AC;? he says. A scarab and phoenix decorate the molten walls of the first scene. Framed pictures of a pinecone (â&#x20AC;&#x153;They need fire to spread their seeds. Fire destroys and fire renews. Nature has it all figured outâ&#x20AC;?), a sunrise and Burning Man decorate the family room walls in the second scene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pictures within pictures,â&#x20AC;? Pfotenhauer says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cool to go into a space within a space.â&#x20AC;? The dragon in the third scene snakes around in a figure 8â&#x20AC;&#x201D;an infinity symbolâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and f lowers fall out of the vents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s futuristic and industrial,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel passionately that for us to evolve, technology has to evolve with nature.â&#x20AC;?

ertain themes appear frequently in Pfotenhauerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art, among them the balance of nature and technology and our connection to both. Native people, plants and animals. Infinity symbols and the number 8. His website, www.paintedladder.com, and T-shirts show a boy painting a ladder, climbing it as he paints. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means rising up creativity,â&#x20AC;? Pfotenhauer says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Turning metaphysical into physical. Art has the power to do that.â&#x20AC;? It also has the power to turn a superhero-loving kid into a professional painter. Pfotenhauerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first gig as an artist was as a superhero. He posed for a drawing class at the California College of Arts and Crafts while iguanas crawled around the room. He wore his costume under his clothes, went into a closet and came out clad in a red cape and blue suit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was iguanas and a little black 5-year-old Superman,â&#x20AC;? he says. At the time, his mother attended the Oakland school and Pfotenhauer frequently attended art classes and lectures with her, bouncing between Santa Cruz and the Bay Area as a kid. He liked to draw teenage mutant ninja turtles, stick figures killing each other and violent robots. After graduating from Santa Cruz High School in 1998, Pfotenhauer took classes for a couple years at Cabrillo before traveling across Europe, painting murals in exchange for places to sleep and do his laundry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paris, Barcelona, parts of Italy, Switzerland, Prague, Amsterdam, southern France. I painted in every country except for Italy. I toted spray paint in a shoe box outside my bag.â&#x20AC;? Traveling, painting, taking classes and traveling some more became Pfotenhauerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s routine for a half-dozen years. He studied animation at the California Institute of the Arts in Southern California between 2003 and 2005. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was inspired by animation, its platform to be a lot of disciplines,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can incorporate storytelling, visual arts, music.â&#x20AC;? When he was 25, he dropped out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feeling it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Was it school or me or just us? I felt really removed, isolated, which is an opportunity in itself if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the right state of mind. But it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what I was looking for at the time.â&#x20AC;? Again, he hopped on a plane and flew overseas, painting a teen-center mural in Vietnam and an underwater scene at a dive school in exchange for scuba lessons

and certification in Thailand. Then he returned to Santa Cruz.

P

fotenhauerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest mural decorates pull-down doors outside of Good Guys Biodiesel on Water Street near Santa Cruz Stoves & Fireplaces and Charlie Hong Kong, where he recently finished a birds and vines mural inside the eatery. He also spends a lot of time with kids, volunteering at DeWitt Anderson School and Renaissance High School, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taught mural classes since 2007. A handful of kids at the high school help him paint murals on the weekends, and have supervised mural projects with youngsters at MacQuiddy Elementary and Rolling Hills Middle schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Santos, Shasta, Carlos and Pedroâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the next generation of muralists Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m watching come up,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Santos went up to Oakland with me to paint murals, and wrote the grant for the Books Not Bombsâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;sponsored mural [at Renaissance.]â&#x20AC;? But funding for arts programs at all schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including DeWitt and Renaissanceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has been cut to the quick, so Pfotenhauerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still looking into grants and other sources to pay for his time, art supplies and gas to and from both locations. He recently started a few new paid teaching gigs: art at Star High School on Frederick Street, beat making at Highlands Park Community School and set design at Happy Valley Elementary School. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also offering private and small-group classes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elijah plays an essential but often underappreciated and under-resourced role,â&#x20AC;? says Sandino Gomez, youth empowerment coordinator at the Resource Center for Nonviolence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really unfortunate that art programs have been cut so thoroughly in schools. People like Elijah go above and beyond any official capacity or responsibility to bring art to kids.â&#x20AC;? When Youth Coalition Santa Cruz teens said they wanted to paint a mural, Gomez asked Pfotenhauer to mentor the group. Together, they built a giant frame for one mural, learned to draw and paint, and even silkscreened T-shirts at Barrios Unidos for a second mural. Both now hang in the Santa Cruz Library. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bookscapeâ&#x20AC;? is upstairs (with help from Renaissance High teens) that shows a girl reading under a tree with leaves made from pages; below her, paper swells from a purple sea meet a town built of books. The youth group also completed an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Energy Conservationâ&#x20AC;? 3-D ¨ "

mural that hangs above the downstairs computers. In it, people hang clothes to dry on a line out the window, and real T-shirts with energy-conservation images and messages hang on a real clothesline between the two canvases. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Elijah puts brushes in kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hands,â&#x20AC;? Gomez continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He puts paints in kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hands, and he has them do it. He meets them where they are at, and gives them the encouragement they need to shine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He sees the world as a giant playground-slash-canvas that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just lucky enough to interact with.â&#x20AC;? Pfotenhauer himself takes a democratic view of art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to articulate is how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all artists,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be cool to not even use the word art, just to say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;expression.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Expression is just another part of life. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty valid. We all do it in different ways. The way I do it is a classic way.â&#x20AC;?

I

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Friday afternoon, and Pfotenhauer is the only male in the room. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teaching an art class at DeWitt Anderson, an alternative school for girls ages 12 to 18. This is volunteer workâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he used to get paid but now the moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run outâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;so twice a week, he drives to Freedom with art supplies to teach. Last year, he and the girls created a mural titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Women We Admire in

Artâ&#x20AC;? featuring Kat Von D, French graffiti girl Fafi and Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own DJ Eko, among others. Today the girls are making dream pillows, ironing silkscreen images onto fabric and then stitching and stuffing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pillow that inspires youâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to look at it every night before you go to sleep,â&#x20AC;? says Janelle Carranco, cutting out images of dancers to iron onto her pillow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mine is dance. I want to be a choreographer.â&#x20AC;? Another girl chose a photo of the Bay Bridge at sunset; another picked an ultrasound image of her baby, due in a month. Pfotenhauer circles the desks, threading needles and giving advice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a talented artist, an inspiring, creative leader with a big heart,â&#x20AC;? says teacher Lissa Downey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His style is really easy, really encouraging of the girls. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gentle, and to have an experience with a young man who is so gentle is important to them. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very real with them.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;So after these pillows, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our next project?â&#x20AC;? asks Jyzenia Maldonado. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? Pfotenhauer answers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s figure it out together.â&#x20AC;?

C@0/<@3/:7AB7< B634/@E3AB BURT LEVITSKY left New York more than 30 years ago, but the streets of Manhattan still pulse to life in his realist oil paintings. Trained as an illustrator and Madison Avenue ad designer, Levitsky recalls working on ad layouts by day and coming home to paint all night. Studying with Frank Reilly and Max Ginsburg, Levitsky mastered contemporary realist imagery that was always haunted by the moods and hustle of urban life. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of George Tookerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ennui and Thomas Hart Bentonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vitality in his ambitious portrayals of people embedded in their metropolitan landscapes. And while he still travels to New York each year to see family, Levitsky has been a familiar feature of downtown Santa Cruz since 1973. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just going to stay for a little while,â&#x20AC;? he jokes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I kept coming back.â&#x20AC;? Admitting that his figurative style went against the fashionable grain of abstract expressionism and, more recently, conceptual art, Levitsky is passionately dedicated to old masters techniques of careful preliminary drawing, chiaroscuro underpainting and then a build-up of glazes that lends depth and color brilliance to his work. Of the 16 paintings on exhibitâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;midscale oils on linenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;most bear the lineage of his urban illustration days. Streets slick with rain, richly rendered architectural motifs, skyscrapers lost in the clouds. A few of the works are sensuous still-lifes, with lustrous drapery and gleaming pewter echoing the great tradition of northern Renaissance style. Levitsky admits his meticulously detailed realism hearkens back to earlier trends in painting, but he has no regrets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As you look backâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and at my age you can see decades pastâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you can see what your work was all about.

CGI-heavy take-off on the Lewis Carroll books about Alice has the smell of his other remakesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; gaudy, over-the-top and ultimately pointless.

94 min.) You sank my battleship! Either that or youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve discovered this Ăźber-cool 2004 cult film about an undercover cop out to save Paris from a neutron bomb in the near future . . . of 2010. Whoops! Anyway, I have no idea why The Matrix got so much attention, while this movie that was just as much a leap in filmmaking vision and concept, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the credit it deserves. Just because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s French? Quel dommage! ( Plays Fri-Sat midnight at the Del Mar.) (SP)

like a Jason Bourne sequel, but really itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Matt Damon in an Iraq War thriller about a conspiracy to lie about the existence of weapons of mass destruction, as a justification for U.S. invasion.

B630:7<2A723 (PG13; 126 min.) The film focuses on Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), who overcame homelessness as a teenager to received a football scholarship to the University of Mississippi and later played in the NFL. Oher succeeded with the help of a wealthy Christian couple, Ole Miss grads Leigh Anne (Sandra Bullock) and Sean Tuohy (Tim McGraw), who took Oher in and made him a part of their family.

(R; 133 min.) The stories of three seemingly unconnected police officers turn out to beâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;intertwined! No way! I did not see that coming. By the way, is there any person in the world whose story does not somehow intersect with every other person in the world? Cause thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my takeaway from this endless slew of popcorn flicks aspiring to Altmanness. Point of interest: one of the cops is Richard Gere. Oh, you know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handling the prostitute beat! (SP) 1=>=CB (R; 110 min.) Kevin Smith doing a movie about cops somehow seems every bit as wrong as Ice T playing a cop on TV, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty wrong. This is the first movie Smith didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t write himself, although I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whether thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better or worse. In any case, it has Bruce Willis as a New York cop trying to retrieve a baseball card with partner Tracy Morgan. (SP) B631@/H73A (R; 101 min.) Made for $275,00 in 1973, George Romeroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Crazies had no right to be anywhere near as good as it was. But it hit the perfect paranoia pitch for the era, featuring government troops in shocking white hazmat suits invading a small town to â&#x20AC;&#x153;clean upâ&#x20AC;?

the mess that it made when it let an army virus infect a small town. The basic idea of â&#x20AC;&#x153;undead by infectionâ&#x20AC;? was the second big idea Romero would contribute to the zombie movie; it took longer to catch on but now is one of the most popular genre staples. Think the people behind this remake can do better with $12 million? Not bloody likely. (SP) 1@/HG63/@B(R;

119 min.) Crazy Heart gives Jeff Bridges a belly-baring role, with his slit-eyed country singer Bad Blake as a kind of Bad Lebowski, a morose sweet-talking satyr drinking his way to the grave. On tour in his ancient 1978 Chevy Suburban, he meets a former Oklahoma newspaper reporter, Jean (Maggie Gyllenhaal). What truly concerns Jean is the influence this charismatic wreck of a man will be on her young son. Robert Duvall, who coproduced, plays a clean and sober bar owner in Houston who is also Badâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mentor. Ultimately, it may be that Bridges is more fun to watch as a drunkardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;his Bad has a hostile, coolly funny mean streak that goes away when he gets dry and sensitive. (RvB)

108 min.) Dear John is based on Nicholas Sparksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; epistle romance between a big, shy lug of a Green Beret named John Tyree (Channing Tatum) and Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried), a well-off college girl who lives by the beach in South Carolina. She is a good girl who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drink, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smoke and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sleep around. Tyree begs Savannah to wait for her while his tour of duty ends. Then Sept. 11 strikes: a choice between his country and Amanda Seyfried. The Forever War is cornstarch to hold this batter togetherâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the movie shuns female curves and goes full porno on the fuselages of cargo planes instead. Director Lasse HallstrĂśm does a few things neatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a matching shot between a fountain of brass shell casings and tumbling of coins at the mint. (RvB)

(PG-13; 95 min.) Lone Scherfigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s British coming-of-age film ends with a marathon session of tea brewing, but it has its good points. The look is coolâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;1960ish England may be more interesting than the full-blown and overexposed later â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s. Twickenham-raised Jenny (Carey Mulligan) is studying for Oxford when she gets picked up by David (Peter Sarsgaard), a slightly older rotter; his slightly cruel eyes and flat smile forecast trouble to come. Until then, Jenny gets to see London high life and nightclubs, and voyages to Paris. Smelling class, and wanting to make their hard-working daughter happy, Jennyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents (Cara Seymour, Alfred Molina) relax the leash. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the young girl learns how David makes his money without working days. Mulligan is charming, the meet-cute is deft and Olivia Williams bears all the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spine as a deliberately drabbeddown English teacher. Nick Hornby screenplay from the Lynn Barber memoir. (RvB) B6356=ABE@7B3@

(PG-13; 136 min.) See review on page 29. B636C@B:=193@

(R; 138 min.) The soldiers of Bravo Company are stationed in Baghdad for the 2004 fighting. Central to the film is the mystery of Staff Sgt. James (Jeremy Renner) who comes in to replace a slaughtered demolition expert. Jamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; risk-taking amazes and angers his subordinate, Sgt. Sanborn (Anthony Mackie). The suspenseful, grimly funny script is by co-producer Mark Boal. Renner is outstanding as the inhumanly brave demolition expert. Director Kathryn Bigelow does what Howard Hawks would do; she finds the cooperation between men of great competence in a killing trade, rather than pumping up rivalry. Bigelow breaks through the sense of anonymity that characterizes most Iraq war movies, where helmeted men move alike and talk the same terse slang. (RvB)

program is under the direction of a chainsmoking biologist (Sigourney Weaver). The politics play it both ways; letting us swoon over the military hardware and still lament for the plundered forests. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to see it, see it in 3-D. (RvB)

min.) For Terry Gilliam, Don Quixote is still the ur-text. Despite the various stops and starts he has had adapting the Cervantes classic, Gilliam repeatedly makes films about fantasy as an escape from a cruel world. The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus has Christopher Plummer in the Man of la Mancha role this time, with Verne Troyer as Percy, a dwarf Sancho Panza. Plummer plays Doctor Parnassus, an immortal sage reduced to busking in a horse-drawn Gypsy wagon. He and his crew set up their stand in the streets of modern-day London, trying to lure patrons in to a world beyond the doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mirror. On board is his daughter, who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that she has been promised to the devil on her 16th birthday; Mr. Nick (Tom Waits) is sniffing around already. During their travels, the group rescues a hanged man named Tony (an irresolute Heath Ledger). (RvB) B63:/ABAB/B7=<

(R; 112 min.) Well cast, visually pleasant yet strangely toneless film about Tolstoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last days. Around 1910 in Moscow, Valentin (James McAvoy) is recruited by Chertkov (Paul Giamatti), who is dedicated to carrying out the authorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reformist ideas regarding celibacy and manual labor. Valentin will live on Tolstoyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commune and record the great manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thoughts. Tolstoy (Christopher Plummer) is enjoying a sort of Indian summer, watching his minifarm bloom and receiving the adulation of the world. But the countâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s countessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Sofya, his wife of nearly 50 years, played by Helen Mirrenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;has tired of her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s utopian politics. Mirren does the great lady thing with ease. (RvB) B63;=AB 2/<53@=CA;/<7< /;3@71/(Unrated;

Ellsberg tried to leak them to the Senate; the solons showed little desire to hold the hot potato. The spud in question passed to The New York Times. When the papers were published, Ellsberg became a fugitive, persecuted by a vengeful President Nixon. Not overly nostalgic for the smell of vintage tear gas, for a change, and Ellsberg shows heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still on the frontlines of protest. Concisely and intelligently told, this is a story to refresh the memories of the old and inspire the young. (RvB) >@317=CA0/A32 =<B63<=D3:>CA6 0GA/>>67@3(R; 110

min.) Much lauded, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bulldozer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1987, during some of Harlemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most suffering years. A girl of immense girth, 16-year-old Claireece (Gabourey â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gabbyâ&#x20AC;? Sidibe) makes her way through life. She has intelligence, but she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t focus, and we learn why in flashback; she was serially raped by her motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boyfriend. Her scathing, angry mother, Mary (Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nique), blames Precious for

this and her resulting pregnancy), urging her to stop this foolishness about school and go on welfare. Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nique is great, but Precious has a judgmental streak that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quit. (RvB) A6CBB3@7A:/<2

(R; 138 min.) In 1954, two federal marshals, Teddy and Chuck (Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo), are sent to a Skull Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;like promontory in Boston harbor. They match wits with the lord of the place: Dr. Cawley, the bald head psychiatrist (Ben Kingsley), and his assistant, a Mahlerloving Mitteleuropean (Max von Sydow). The two supervise a weird staff; we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell them from the inmates without their uniforms. Bad storm, check; power outage, check; escaped lunatic, check. The traditions are honored: nightmare sequences, statues flickering in lightning and visits to Teddy by the ever-more persistent ghost of his dead wife, Dolores (Michelle Williams). The all-you-can-eat buffet of fruitcakes includes a disfigured Elias Koteas, Patricia Clarkson as a tragic cavewoman, Emily Mortimer as a suburban Medea and Jackie Earle Haley. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all

laid out with panache, if with stagy chunks of backstory. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an entertaining throwback, not a step forwardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a stumbling block for a baffled audience trained to believe â&#x20AC;&#x153;it must be important, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Scorsese.â&#x20AC;? (RvB) /A7<5:3;/< (R;

109 min.) Based on Christopher Isherwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early-1960s novel, canonical in gay literature but slightly dusty today. A British professor (Colin Firth) teaching in L.A. loses his longtime companion in a car accident and has decided he can no longer stand the pain. He finds some consolation with a harddrinking old friend (and ex-lover) called Charley (Julianne Moore); on his route, he encounters young men who are both interesting and interested. Noteworthy as a great comeback performance by Firth, who has had much substandard work to deal with lately. Firth plays George with sensitivity and grace, and a sense of the era that most of the performers here lack. Director Tom Ford shows his roots as a fashion designer, focusing on surfaces. The clothes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the men. (RvB)

B63E=:4;/<(R;

102 min.) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a perfect film, but The Wolfman is a loving remake, made by people who understood the romance, pathos and torment of the original 1941 film. This new animal has speed on his side, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more viscera flying around. In 1891, after the horrific death of his brother, the noted Shakespearean actor Lawrence Talbot (Benicio del Toro) returns home to his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mansion. This means a re-encounter with his estranged father Sir John (Anthony Hopkins). The town gossip has it that Lawrenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother was killed by a tame dancing bear owned by a band of Gypsies; when investigating on a moonlit night, Lawrence himself is nearly killed by the real culprit. The fiancĂŠ of the late brother (Emily Blunt) stays to nurse Lawrence back to health And when the next moon rises, well, you know. The Talbot scenes suggest Del Toro was cast for his resemblance to Lon Chaney Jr., with his clouded, thick features and his air of suffering. We see the human under the fur. (RvB)

By Rob Brezsny

For the week of March 10 /@73A(March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19): Sarah Bernhardt (1844â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1923) was called â&#x20AC;&#x153;the most famous actress the world has ever known.â&#x20AC;? She did a few films in the early days of the cinema, but most of her work was in the theater. At age 70, she played the role of the 13-year-old Juliet in Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Romeo and Juliet. I commend her on her refusal to act her age, and recommend that you make a comparable effort in the coming weeks. For example, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in your twenties, try something you thought you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do until you were at a very ripe age. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re over 50, be 25 for a while. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an excellent time to do this kind of timetraveling. B/C@CA(April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20): You might have to use primitive means to accomplish modern wonders. It may be necessary to hearken back to what worked in the past in order to serve the brightest vision of the future. Take your cue from Luis Soriano, a saintly teacher who carries a library of 120 books on the back of a donkey as he meanders around the back country of Columbia, helping poor kids learn how to read.

53;7<7(May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20): Humans have been baking and eating bread for at least 5,000 years. But it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until the 20th century that anyone figured out a fast and easy way to cut it into thin, precise pieces. Then Otto Rohwedder, who had been working on the project for 16 years, produced a machine that cut a loaf into individual slices. I bring him to your attention, Gemini, because I think you are in a phase of your life when you could very possibly create an innovation that would be as intimately revolutionary as Rohwedderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was for the masses. In fact, why arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you working on it right now? 1/<13@(June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22): In order to heal deep-seated problems, people may need to engage in long-term psychotherapy, patiently chipping away at their mental blocks for many years. But some lucky sufferers get their neuroses zapped virtually overnight, either with the help of a monumental event that shocks them out of their malaise or through the work of a brilliant healer who uses a few strokes of kamikaze compassion to creatively destroy their deluded fixations. I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now a candidate for this type of correction, Cancerian.

:3=(July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Aug. 22): To discover the most useful truths, you will have to peek behind the curtains and root around to see whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cloaked in the dark and maybe even explore messes youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather not touch. What complicates your task is that the fake truths may be extra loud and shiny, distracting you from the down and dirty stuff with their relentless come-ons. But I have confidence in your ability to outmaneuver the propaganda, Leo. You shall know the hype, and knowing the hype will set you free.

D7@5=(Aug. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sept. 22): The evil geniuses of the advertising industry are hard at work in their labs dreaming up seductive new mojo to artificially stimulate your consumer lusts. Meanwhile, the mediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relentless campaign to get you to believe in debilitating fantasies and divert you from doing whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really good for you has reached a fever pitch. And hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the triple whammy: Even more than usual, some of your relatives and cohorts are angling to convince you that what pleases them is what pleases you. So is there any hope that you will be able to hone in on what truly excites you? (Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially important that you do so right now.) The answer, in my opinion, is a qualified yesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to conduct intensive research into the idiosyncratic secrets of what makes you happy; and IF youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not scared to discover who you are when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re turned on all the way. :70@/(Sept. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 22): If you were living in Greece in the fifth century B.C., Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d urge you to bathe in the healing spring at the shrine of Asklepios in Athens. If you were in 19th-century France, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d recommend that you trek to the sacred shrine at Lourdesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;being sure to crawl the last half-mile on your hands and kneesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and sip from the curative waters there. But since youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a busy 21st-century sophisticate and may have a limited belief in miracles, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll simply suggest that you visit the most interesting tree you know and spill a bottle of pristine water over your head as you confess your sins and ask the sky for forgiveness and sing songs that purify you to the bone. A1=@>7=(Oct. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov. 21): Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite possible that the nature of consciousness is in the midst of a

fundamental transformation. The human race seems to be getting more empathetic, more compassionate, and even more psychic. Many of us are having experiences that were previously thought to be the province of mystics, such as epiphanies that give us visceral perceptions of the interconnectedness of all life. Even as some traditional religions lose members and devolve into cartoony fundamentalism, there are ever-increasing numbers of intelligent seekers who cultivate a more discerning spiritual awareness outside the decrepit frameworks. If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been on this bandwagon, Scorpio, nowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good time to jump on. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already on board, get ready for an accelerated ride.

A/57BB/@7CA(Nov. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 21): This week youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be working overtime while you sleep. Your dreaming mind will be playing around with solutions to your waking mindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dilemmas. Your ally, the wild conjurer in the ramshackle diamond-encrusted sanctuary at the edge of the deep dark forest, will be spinning out medicine stories and rounding up help for you. So of course you should keep a pen and notebook by your bed to record the dreams that come. I suggest that you also try to keep the first part of your mornings free of busy work so you can integrate the full impact of the nightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gifts. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t despair if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually remember any of your nocturnal adventures. Their tasty after-images will remain with you subliminally, giving your logical mind an intuitive edge. 1/>@71=@<(Dec. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Jan. 19): Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be an abundance of unambiguous choices for you to make in the coming days. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not implying theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be easy, just that the different alternatives will be clearly delineated. To get you warmed up for your hopefully crisp decisions, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve compiled a few exercises. Pick one of each of these pairs: 1. exacting homework or freeform research; 2. pitiless logic or generous fantasies; 3. precise and disciplined communication or heedless self-expression; 4. grazing like a contented sheep or rambling like a restless mountain goat. /?C/@7CA(Jan. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Feb. 18): Among Eastern religions, some traditions preach the value of getting rid of your desires. To be righteously attuned to current cosmic rhythms, however, I think you should rebel against that ideal, and instead cultivate a whole host of excellent desires. Use your imagination, please! Here are a few I highly recommend: a desire for a revelation or experience that will steer you away from becoming more like a machine; a desire for a fresh blast of purity from a primal source; a desire for an imaginary pet snake that teaches you how to be more playful with your libidinous energy; and a desire for a jolt of unexpected beauty that reminds you how important it is to always keep a part of your mind untamed. >7A13A(Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20): I used to have an acupuncturist who, as she poked me with needles, liked to talk about her understanding of Chinese medicine. Once she told me that every human being needs a â&#x20AC;&#x153;heart protector,â&#x20AC;? which is a body function thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;like a holy warrior who serves as the queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s devoted ally.â&#x20AC;? But the heart protector is not something youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re born with. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to grow it by building your fortitude and taking care of your body. I think the heart protector will be an apt metaphor for you to play with in the coming weeks, Pisces. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be an excellent time for you to cultivate any part of your life that gives your heart joy, strength, peace, and integrity.
