Statewide Ballot Initiatives Prop. 19

Prop. 21

Regulate and Tax Cannabis

Vehicle Fee for Parks



Thirty-eight years ago, in November 1972, there was a marijuana-legalization measure on the November ballot in California, also called Prop. 19. Strikingly similar to this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s model, the proposition failed when 60 percent of Californians voted to keep pot illegal. Almost four decades later, marijuana is easier to find than it ever was, proving that the criminalization of marijuana does nothing to prevent its use. Meanwhile, drug crime has explodedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;our prisons are packed and our streets are less safe. These are the direct results of this archaic law. The Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010 will provide the state with significant tax revenue. It is estimated that a $50-per-ounce levy has the potential to raise $1.4 billion a yearâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;money which now winds up in the hands of drug traffickers and illegal gun dealers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for this foolish prohibition to be abolished.

Prop. 21, the Vehicle License Fee for Parks Act, is exactly what it sounds like: a fee ($18 per year) tacked on to the fees California drivers pay annually to the DMV. The roughly $500 million that the initiative would raise would go toward maintaining the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 278 parks, which are plagued by slashed budgets. Most California drivers would get free access to the parks, and $130 million would be directed to the cash-starved general fund. While any added fees imposed on residents should be treated with skepticism, there is no doubt that keeping state parks open is a worthy moveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not only to attract the millions of tourists who routinely visit the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks, but also to allow all Californians to share in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rich natural heritage.

Prop. 20


Congressional Redistricting

In the past year the Legislature, facing a horrendous deficit, has exercised its authority to take money from local redevelopment and transportation agencies in what is universally described as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;raidâ&#x20AC;? on local funds. On its surface, this proposition, which would end that practice, seems to make sense. And were it proposed in a different year, in a different economy, and in more moderate form, it might well be worth recommending. But at a time when nearly every state in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is strained to the breaking point by the largest economic downturn in a century, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense to pass a law that would prohibit even 1 cent of variation in shares of state and local revenue, even in the event of natural disasters. Among the many structural problems facing our state, one is the inflexibility forced on the Legislature because of â&#x20AC;&#x153;budgeting by ballot.â&#x20AC;? This proposition would make matters worse.

G3A This is inside politics that matters. For years, the boundaries of Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Assembly and state Senate districts were drawn up, every 10 years, by the assemblymembers and senators themselves. That scheme had predictable results: The elected officials created districts that were favorable to themselves and their parties. Essentially, they were able to choose their own voters. And so we get districts that are â&#x20AC;&#x153;solidly Democraticâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;solidly Republican,â&#x20AC;? making political compromise unnecessary and gridlock inevitable. Two years ago, California voters did away with that system. With 2008â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Prop. 11, voters approved the creation of an independent citizens commission to take over the drawing of legislative districts. (For more on this, see Prop. 27 endorsement below.) Prop. 20 expands that commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mandate, empowering it to also draw U.S. congressional districts. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea for the same reason Prop. 11 was a good idea: Many elected officials in Sacramento today hope to move on to jobs in D.C. someday, and they have their eyes on that prize when they draw congressional districts.

Prop. 22 Ban on State Borrowing From Local Governments

with the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020. Now that statewide unemployment is hovering around 12 percent, anti-regulation groups are targeting the climate change law and its objective, saying environmental regulations are the cause of the Golden Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial woes. If passed, the law would suspend most of the provisions of A.B. 32 until the state posts unemployment figures of 5.5 percent or lower for four straight quartersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; something that has happened only three times since 1980. Curbing greenhouse gasses is a responsibility that runs deeper than the ebb and flow of unemployment figures, and the revenue generation estimated to be produced by axing the law is modest by nearly all accounts.

Prop. 24 Repeal of Corporate Tax Breaks G3A This proposition reverses three tax breaks, negotiated during the last two yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; state budget showdowns, which primarily benefit multinational businesses. They represent about $1.3 billion a year in lost revenue to the state. A yes vote will ensure that money stays in state coffers rather than going to a few well-lined pockets. One of the breaks lets interstate businesses pick their in-state share of business taxes from a menu: choosing whether to pay on the property they occupy, their payroll value or sales. The second allows distribution of tax credits to affiliatesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a game that some companies have gotten too good at playing. And the third allows corporations to collect refunds of past taxes during years in which theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve shown net losses. The California Chamber of Commerce has labeled this prop a â&#x20AC;&#x153;jobs tax,â&#x20AC;? claiming that it will reduce new hiring. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the tired old trickle-down argument. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy it.

Prop. 25 Majority Rules on Budget G3A

Prop. 23 Suspend A.B. 32, the Global Warming Act <= Californiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landmark antiâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;global warming legislation, A.B. 32, was passed in 2006

In some ways, this is the only proposition that matters. California currently requires the approval of two-thirds of both legislative houses to pass a budget, a threshold shared only by Arkansas and Rhode Island (the other 47 states require simple majorities). The result, here in the

eighth largest economy in the world, is budgets that are almost always late, a fixed system of minority rule with a legacy of intense gerrymandering to maintain it, suspended services and a credit rating nestled snugly between those of the Czech Republic and Greece. Opponents say that if passed, Prop. 25 will allow lawmakers to raise taxes with only a majority vote. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s false. State law will continue to require a two-thirds vote in the Legislature to raise taxes. What Prop. 25 will do is set the conditions for a realistic public conversation about spending and revenue in California to take placeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and that is a necessary first step to recovery.

Prop. 26 Supermajority Rules <= The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association is sponsoring this initiative. If it passes, its primary funders, Chevron and Occidental, as well as MillerCoors and AnhueserBusch, will get their way, as all levels of government, from city councils to the state Legislature, will have to achieve two-thirds vote thresholds to raise any fee for any activity or any levy for violating any law. That includes environmental law, which is where this prop got its nickname: The Polluter Protection Act. This proposition is corporate cynicism at its worst.

Prop. 27 â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Incumbent Protection Actâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; <=

The sponsors of this measure, a group of Democratic incumbents (many of whom we generally support) have named it the Financial Accountability in Redistricting Act. They claim its intent is to save money, because the state cannot afford to pay a small citizens commission to handle the chore of drawing legislative districts. Its true intent is to make it easier for them to keep their jobs. Prop. 27 would repeal the voter-approved Proposition 11, which authorized the creation of the commission, and return that responsibility to the Legislature itself, where it would no doubt result in more gerrymandering. Voters in Santa Cruz County have a stake in the outcome of this decision. In the last round of redistricting, parts of the county were included in a Senate district that stretches down to Santa Maria, ensuring that nobody from our part of California will ever win that seat. A citizens commission will almost certainly redraw this district more fairly. If Prop. 27 passes, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the chance to do that.

Catalyzed by Katrina â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Village Called Versailles,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; part of the Pacific Rim Film Festival, shows how an embattled community of Vietnamese fought off the city of New Orleans 0G@716/@2D=<0CA/19


ANY IMMIGRANTS to the United States have had the experience of not understanding that they were really and truly American until that moment when someone suggested otherwise. Such a moment might be seen at the end of Leo Chiangâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s documentary A Village Called Versailles, one of the highlights of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pacific Rim Film Festival. Six months after Hurricane Katrina, a small, insular community of Vietnamese immigrants

has emerged to protest a 90-foot mountain of toxic garbage planned for the edge of their neighborhood. As they gather to picket at the gate, a dump security guard tells them, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not Vietnamese [sic], this is America . . .â&#x20AC;? as if sticking up for your rights was only allowed elsewhere. When Katrina struck, one district of New Orleans flooded out was the community of Versailles. Technically called Village de lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Est, the hamlet was nicknamed after a low-income apartment complex called the Versailles Arms

where a few families settled in the late 1970s. They were Vietnamese Catholic refugees who had been kept after arrival at Fort Chaffey, Ark. You could name a dozen Vietnamese enclaves in bigger cities, from San Jose to Falls Church, Va., to the central part of Orange County. But Chiang found in Versailles something different: a particularly tight, traditional and unassimilated town with roots in the old country. They survived by fishing in the swampsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need English to be fishermen,â&#x20AC;? says one observer. ¨

A Village Called Versailles has some 1970s news footage of Plaquemines parish party boss Chalin Perez on television denouncing the Vietnamese fishermen as people who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand the ways of the locals. To contextualize for a second, Chalin was the son of the infamous political boss Leander Perez, notorious for public pronouncements like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for your daughter to be raped by those Congolese.â&#x20AC;? By â&#x20AC;&#x153;Congolese,â&#x20AC;? the elder Perez referred to those black Louisiana citizens who wanted to integrate in the 1960s. Aside from this and other frictions, Versailles grew on the edge of New Orleans East into a village that was a kind of cross between Vietnam and America. The American-born children went to school and then returned to traditional homes; they shopped at a public Saturday market and attended mass at Mary Queen of Vietnam Catholic Church. When Katrina struck and the levees broke, Versailles was hit hard. Some of the locals actually took refuge at Fort Chaffey, where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been billeted 30 years previously. When they returned, they went through the whole sad business of salvaging and fungiciding their homes. The film underscores the sadness: these were people forcibly uprooted twice before, not just in the 1970s when they fled the Communists by boat, but before that from the villages

in the north of Vietnam, where they fled after the U.N. partition in 1954.

Lying Chief Work went fast, and locals were ready to celebrate the Tet Festival in February 2006. Thousands showed up; New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was invited to the fest but stayed away. The locals found out why later that February: Nagin overrode his city council and decided to put a massive dump of Katrina wreckage right next to Versailles. The mountain of garbage would contain an unknown quantity of toxins, stashed right over some soft waterfront soil just right for leaching. The dump was to be named after nearby Chef Menteur Highway. Perhaps some of the elder Vietnamese had enough French to know that name meant â&#x20AC;&#x153;lying chief;â&#x20AC;? the story goes that some Indian chief in the area used to mislead the settlers. Considering the actions of New Orleansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chief Nagin, it was a well-picked name for the Chef Menteur dump. The community had to face down the possibility of being polluted out of their homes and gardens. In its concise and well-researched 68 minutes, A Village Called Versailles follows how they rose up. We learn how the effort to fight the dump knitted together the young people who were looking forward with the elders who looked back in the past. The effort to remove the dump involved ¨ $

African American New Orleans City Councilwoman Cynthia Willard-Lewis. Vietnamese-American TV journalist Mimi Nguyen joined in too, since she had come to New Orleans to translate for FEMA. (She tells Chiangâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camera that she was as surprised as anyone to hear there were Vietnamese in New Orleans.) Chiang, a San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based documentary maker, heard the story of Versailles village from a friend who was a professor in Arizona. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She had been down in New Orleans to study the recovery after Katrina of different communities of color,â&#x20AC;? he told me by phone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I also heard about what Father Vien Nguyen was doing, leading the fight against the dumping site. The more I listened, the more I liked, so I tagged along with her and did some research.â&#x20AC;? As one can guess from seeing eight translators credited in the film, Chiang doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak Vietnamese. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Actually, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the beauty of doing documentaries, going into communities you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about and finding out about them,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone can relate to what the people of the town went throughâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the displacement and the sense of longing for home.â&#x20AC;? And yet Chiang was still an outsider. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the time I got there,â&#x20AC;? Chiang explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;they had realized that they had to talk to the outside world to achieve their goals and get their story heard. They were already talking to CNN and other major news outlets. In some ways, it was helpful to be Asian Americanâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it made for a little bit closer of a connection. Of course, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of those communities where if the leadership thinks youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re OK, everyone cooperates, and Father Nguyen gave me some help here.â&#x20AC;?

A Real Career Versaillesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recovery now is mostly complete, in contrast to the majority of New Orleans East and the Ninth Ward. Chiang and his crew arrived a year or so after the storm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were there a year afterâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a lot of the footage we used was from other folks, we actually werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there when Katrina hit or right afterwards. To find the footage and acquire it took a year.â&#x20AC;? Chiang was born and raised in Taiwan. His family immigrated to San Jose (â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used to go over the hill to Santa Cruz in the summers,â&#x20AC;? he adds). He studied electrical engineering at UCâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Santa Barbara and then worked for Apple for a few years.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stoke my passion, working there. I was fascinated with films and film watching. But being an immigrant from Asia, film didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to be an acceptable career path. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that my folks were against it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that I kind of internalized the idea that it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work as a real career.â&#x20AC;? Eventually, Chiang attended USC film school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I studied both fiction and nonfiction filmmaking, but I focused on documentaries, mainly because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the patience to do the writing and the money raising. With documentaries you can just pick up the camera and go. I enjoy traveling and meeting people and studying the anthropological differences between us.â&#x20AC;? With the help of the Center for AsianAmerican Media, a San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;based organization that funds and distributes films, Chiang will be commencing his next film about a man mentioned in passing here: Anh â&#x20AC;&#x153;Josephâ&#x20AC;? Cao, the first Vietnamese-American congressman. Cao is a surprising character: he was elected in a primarily African American district in New Orleans, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pro-health care, global-warmingacknowledging Republican in a district that had been going Democrat for 110 years. Cao recently did something that could only be described as delightful. Lamar McKay, the resigned BP exec, turned up at Congress to explain himself last June. Cao had some words for McKay. Back in Asia where he came from, Cao noted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do things differently. During the samurai days, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just give you the knife and ask you to commit hara-kiri. My constituents are still debating on what they want me to ask you to do.â&#x20AC;? This was controversial, as well as unfairly baroque; likely most local fantasies had been simpler, something like the Mark Wahlberg torture scene in Three Kings. Drink up, boys! â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard that Spike Lee just gave Cao a samurai sword as a gift,â&#x20AC;? Chiang notes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be following him through the election. Hopefully Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be done next spring for TV broadcast, and maybe the San Francisco Asian American Film Festival if I can get it done in time.â&#x20AC;?

OR YEARS, the relationship between the United States and the Mariana Islands could be called â&#x20AC;&#x153;give and takeâ&#x20AC;?; the islanders gave and the United States took. Vanessa Warheitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Insular Empire: America in the Mariana Islands is an exploration, among other things, of what the U.N. describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Guam Question.â&#x20AC;? This Stanford-educated filmmaker, now a Vancouver resident, sums up the last few decades since these islands ended up in our domain. Guam itself was a spoil of the Spanish-American war. The northern Marianas were taken from Imperial Japan and given to the U.N., but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so firmly in the U.S. domain that this legal status is almost fictional: we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t test many

H-bombs on much of the U.N.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other protectorates. The islands are subject to a bewildering patchwork of legal statuses, which Warheit explains quite adequately. In small, we see some of the history of Hawaii repeated here, including the efforts to wipe out of the native language and to use the terrain for military purposes. Considering the previous management by the Spaniards, Guam is estimated as the longest continually occupied colony in the world. In some respects, the citizens of Guam are more American than the Americans, if one cites their contribution to the U.S. wars. The islandsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sons become Uncle Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soldiers; their casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan alone are far out of proportion to the size of the local population. ¨

B@7AB3B@=>71A Colonialism is always ambiguous, as Warheit explains, and it goes beyond an appreciation for Coca-Cola and ice cream. The biggest national holiday in the Marianas is the military parade in honor of the liberation from the Japanese. And the northern Marianas are still considered sacred places in U.S. Marine military history: ask a leatherneck about the islands of Saipan and Tinian. Despite all this, Guam and the Marianas remain without adequate political representation. The people have U.S. passports but a distinctly secondclass citizenship. Liberation in World War II ended with the military seizing lands that were paved over with airstrips or used as CIA, Navy or Marine bases. What Warheit doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t report on here, likely because of the lack of cooperation from the local military commanders, is the even worse news to come. Ecologically disastrous plans are being drawn up for the as-yet-untouched parts of Guam, such as a proposal to smash a coral reef to make a port for nuclear aircraft carriers. Koohan Paikâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article in The Nation this April, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Living at â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Tip of the Spear,â&#x20AC;? outlines some of the plans; director Warheit mentions these troubles only in passing, essentially as a huge increase of population as U.S. soldiers arrive to man newly built bases. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the matter of the Marianasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; more recent notoriety as a floating sweatshop, where slave-labor made clothes were branded â&#x20AC;&#x153;Made in USAâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;see Alex Gibneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s documentary Casino Jack and the United States of Money for that sordid tale. The future of these islands is discussed with locally famed politicians and activists. One is former Miss Guam, ex-senator and current Chamorrolanguage revivalist Hope Cristobal, whose namesake daughter is continuing to petition for Guamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights at the U.N.. And after years of political activism, Saipanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lino Olopai is now trying to keep alive maybe the most amazing cultural achievement of the people of the South Seas. This itself is a subject perfect for a film festival dedicated to the Pacific Rim: namely, the art of celestial navigation, which enabled the Polynesians to throw a civilization over the vastest spaces on earth.

min.) The vast problems of the U.S. public school system distilled into a quick documentary. Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) follows five young students as they try to get into private schools. (One is eighth-grader Emily of Redwood City, whose parents are concerned that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be pushed onto a noncollege track.) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guggenheimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contention that school funding has doubled while test scores continue to descend. Guggenheim has a point: the dropout rate and the failing students are a hell of a problem. Yet this documentary has the kind of ideology even Meg Whitman can wrap herself around: you can watch it and come to the conclusion that privatization and union-busting is the answerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the same answer weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been given since the 1980s. This may not have been Guggenheimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intention. But as always in this passionate-intensity style documentary, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the possibility of deliberate misreading, thanks to the lethal combo of stridency and slipperiness. (RvB)

@3D73EA 1/A3!'(R; 109 min.)

Kindhearted social worker Emily Jenkins (RenĂŠe Zellweger) brings home an abused 10-yearold girl only to discover that her parents had several good reasons for trying to send her back to hell and that her baggage might be hard to handle without a few lakes of holy water. Jenkins turns out to be as determined as she is kind, and spends the rest of the film fighting to free her charge of demons. 1/B47A6(PG-

13; 94 min.) The new documentary Catfish does for social networking what 1999â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blair Witch Project did for hand-held film. It deals with the problem of the realer-than-real

illusion imparted by documentaries and social networking. The narrow field of vision and depth in portable cameras creates some haunting images: the Michigan town, under flat blue skies, is as empty as the plaza in a de Chirico painting. The sequence of the team exploring a deserted farmhouse, by the green light of night vision at 3am, creates stomach-turning tension. The payoff is diabolically plausible and definitely tragic: thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true horror in such a pitiful need for recognition. And the culture of fame and the age of digital film is creating such horror stories by the dozen every day. (RvB) 3/AG/(PG-13; 95 min.)

High school girl Olive (Emma Stone) gets her reputation ruined and decides to revel in it, accessorizing her outfits with the scarlet A she just read about in Nathaniel Hawthorne in English class. An urbane and sly comedy, vastly superior to Juno; the appealing lead name-checks John Hughes films but this surpasses his conformist work, despite director Will Gluckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tendency to shoot the exteriors of Ojai homes with Nancy Meyersâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;like fussiness. Good work by Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci as Oliveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debonair parents; Scripter Bert V. Royalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gags are almost syncopatedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t relentless joke-joke-joke. The laughs come with the grace of a word to the wise, and the sense on how to emphasize sting at just the right time. (RvB) 63/@B0@3/93@

(PG-13; 105 minutes) A French romantic comedy about three people who make a business (literally) of breakingup other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationships.

101 minutes) Based on the novel by Ned Vizzini, about a depressed teenager (played by Keir Gilchrist) who checks himself into a psychiatric hospital.

7<13>B7=< (PG-13; 148 min.) The basic idea of Christopher Nolanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film is simple. Led by Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio), a sort of Impossible Mission Force, working for a Japanese trillionaire (Ken Watanabe), descends into the sleeping subconscious of the plutocratâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young rival (Cillian Murphy), using technology that allows them to design dreamscapes. Because of the complexity of this operation, the team s forced to create dreams within dreams, and each deeper dream takes place in an exponentially larger time frame. The film is audacious and frequently thrilling, especially when Nolan folds Paris in on itself and Escherizes interior spaces. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visionary filmmaking, uncommon at this scale.

target for bullies. This is when Abby (Chloe Moretz) shows up. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pale girl with dirty bare feet, and she only comes out at night. What Owen doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know is that Abbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father (Richard Jenkins) is a serial killer who ritually murders his victims, draining their blood into a jug. All in all, Reeves does a fine job of delivering the forlornness, solitude and shame of this story, which only uses the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;vampireâ&#x20AC;? once: the focus is not on blood for bloodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake but on the tragedy of inexplicable need.

min.) Director Matt (Cloverfield) Reevesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; respect for the original Swedish film, Let the Right One In, makes this an honorable and chilling movie about the uncanny. It has that element of pity that results in genuine horror, instead of a series of ever-noisier and yet ever-diminishing shocks. The action takes place in Los Alamos, N.M., in the winter of 1983. Raised by a drunken but pious single mom, Owen (Kodi Smit-McPhee) is getting to the stage where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less interested in candy and more interested in knives. Skinny, pale and with disturbingly wideset eyes, he is a natural

(R; 88 minutes) A 3-D horror film from director Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street; Scream). Local lore in the town of Riverton holds that the Ripper, a serial killer who terrorized the town 16 years before, will return to kill those who were born on the day he supposedly died. <3D3@:3B;35=(R; 103 min.) Keira Knightly, Andrew Garfield and Carey Mulligan star in a tale of three boarding school chums who face a â&#x20AC;&#x153;haunting realityâ&#x20AC;? along with the general bummer of growing up. A31@3B/@7/B(PG; 116 minutes) Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s riddle: When is a horse a bum

steer? I was ready to believe that Seabiscuit ended the Depression. You have to give a good film some slack. I was alive in 1973, the year Secretariat won the Triple Crown. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recall his victory healing our divisions over the Vietnam War, though director Randall Wallace coaxes us to believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true. Secretariat is inbredâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the offspring of too many similar sports films. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relentlessly thickâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;custard-thickâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and cheap-looking, too, and its story is as fishy as 3-day-old salmon; it tries to make an underhorse out of a very blueblooded steed. Diane Lane, ordinarily a fine actress, gets no help from the script which seems to be trying to make her an anti-heroine. Lane plays throughbred breeder Penny Chenery. Ultimately, Secretariat is more fundraising pitch than race track action. It is scenes of cold calling, scratching names off a list and fretting over the money more than the races. (RvB) B63A=17/: <3BE=@9 (PG-13;

120 min.) Fiendishly clever and funny movie about the creation of an Internet monster. As Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Jesse Eisenberg gives a master

class on recessive acting: heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beady eyed and covert, with the occasional pit-viper-like sway of a truculent, lowered forehead. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the kind of remorseless superiority that can only look comically childish and wounded onscreen. The film shuttles between the present-day deposition of the now arrogantly rich Zuckerberg, as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sued by a quartet of burned partners (among them his former best friend Eduardo, played by Andrew Garfield). In flashback, we see his own historyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a Jewish student at WASP-ridden Harvard, a social reject whose grudge-hacking was his entry into fame. Later, Zuckerberg meets the founder of Napster, Sean Parkerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;played by Justin Timberlake, excellent as a happy wastrel. The Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross score is closer to the sinister Byrne and Eno we loved once than the flowery, love-struck Byrne and Eno in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. Fincher regular cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth keeps us oriented by making the walnut-lined tombs of Harvard so different from the lambency of the sun in Palo Alto.

Aaron Sorkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wild, witty script hands out punishment that goes beyond the financial penalties: this is a comedy in the Balzac sense, a balancing act; the mockery and the disgust for greed matches the essential lightness of the situation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only Facebook, after all. (RvB) B63B=E<(R; 125 min.) Routine plotting, if some rousing action sequences, in this Boston crime drama with Ben Affleck, a hunk-sized hole in the screen. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the old twobrothers plot, foster brothers though they be: Affleck as criminal paragon and his younger nutty-buddy Jim (Jeremy Renner of The Hurt Locker) ready to lash out and hurt someone. We keep waiting for Jon Hammâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unshaven FBI agent Frawley to rattle the cages. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blake Lively, as an Oxycontin-fancying tramp, who gets the brunt of Hammâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power; she does some excellent reacting to a little bar-side lecture Hamm gives about a $20 bill. Rebecca Hall has too much presence to be just the girl whose entry into the plot causes friction between the two main thieves.

The much-rewritten script is choppy and undermotivated, though Chris Cooper and Pete Postlethwaite are outstanding in tiny roles. (RvB) E/::AB@33B( ;=<3G<3D3@ A:33>A (PG-13; 133

min.) The film starts with a critique of capitalism that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really want to critique capitalism and keeps going. Shia LeBeouf plays Jake Moore, who is busting his figs on the Street to finance his pet project, described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;that little energy company in California.â&#x20AC;? Turns out that his girlfriend is Gordon Gekkoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estranged daughter Winnie (Carey Mulligan). As Gekko, Michael Douglas is just about completely mush. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reformed, written a book called Is Greed Good? and is blatting out platitudes. Director Oliver Stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-known immunity to shame flabbergasts you anew. The world has changed since the 1987 original (documentaries now give us a better idea of how the Wall Street mess hit the fan). Here, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the stale breath of melodrama that overwhelms you, not the breathtaking qualities of the barbs aimed at the master class. (RvB)

Astrology Free Will

By Rob Brezsny

For the week of October 13 /@73A(March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19): Until recently, no cricket had ever been observed pollinating a f lower. All the evidence showed, in fact, that crickets donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help f lowersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;they devour them. Then one night last January on the island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean, researchers discovered that the species known as the raspy cricket was responsible for pollinating wild orchids. They even caught the magic act on film. I regard this turn of events as akin to an upcoming development in your life: Someone or something that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never thought of as a fertilizing force for you will become one. B/C@CA(April 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;May 20): My date and I decided to go see the film You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. As we entered the theater, we passed a short, elderly Chinese woman in a brown uniform. She was bent over sweeping the f loor. Suddenly she stood up straight, looked me in the eye, and extended her left hand toward me. Confused, I reached out toward her. She quickly pressed something in my hand, then returned to her sweeping. As I walked on, I unrolled the small paper scroll she had given me. It read, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tell your Taurus readers they should be alert for helpful messages coming from sources they would usually ignore or neglect.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing what she suggested.

53;7<7(May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20): Of all the signs in the zodiac, you are currently the best at carrying out the following activities: gliding, flowing, leaping, skipping, twirling, undulating, reverberating, galloping, and rub-a-dub-dubbing. I suspect that you will also excel at rumbling, romping, rollicking, cavorting, and zip-a-dap-doodling. If all goes well, Geminiâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which is to say you show how much you love your body and throw off any inhibitions you might have about celebrating your instinctual natureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;then you will be at the low end of the scale in performing these activities: shuffling, drooping, mumbling, wallowing, pigeonholing, and pussyfooting. 1/<13@(June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22): A reader wrote to

me bemoaning the fact that her new Cancerian boyfriend is addicted to safety. She speculated that since he is a member of an astrological sign renowned for its timidity, she should probably either get used to the suffocating lack of action or else bolt from the relationship now. In reply, I sent her a quote from one of the most heroic Cancerians of the 20th century, Helen Keller: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.â&#x20AC;? Moral of the story: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ripe time for you to rise up and refute the people in your life who think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a brooding wallf lower.

can literally enhance your strength. A Harvard study ( proved that people who did good deeds or even visualized themselves doing good deeds had increased physical endurance and willpower. Unfortunately, the study showed that those who harbor nefarious intentions are also able to draw on extra fortitude. In other words, you can boost your energy by either being compassionate or evil. I highly recommend the former over the latter, Leo, especially now that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re entering a phase when it makes a lot of spiritual sense to build your courage, vigor, and tonicity.

D7@5=(Aug. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sept. 22): â&#x20AC;&#x153;The art of medicine consists of amusing the patient while nature cures the disease,â&#x20AC;? said French philosopher Voltaire. With this in mind, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evaluate your current discomfort. From what I can tell, healing forces beyond your control and outside of your awareness are going to be working their mojo to chip away at your problem. But it will still be wise for you to occupy yourself in activities that you think will expedite the fix. Doing so will minimize your anxieties, allowing nature to do what it does best. :70@/(Sept. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 22): Usually you specialize in having a light touch. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather nudge than push. Nimble harmony is more interesting to you than brute force. You prefer your inf luence on people to be appreciated, not begrudgingly respected. And I certainly donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want you to forsake any of those inclinations. But I would love to see you add a dash of aggressiveness and a pinch of vehemence to your repertoire in the coming week. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be thrilled if you raised your voice a bit and gesticulated more vigorously and projected your confidence with

an elevated intensity. According to my reading of the astrological omens, your refined approach will benefit from a dose of subliminal thunder.

A1=@>7=(Oct. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov. 21): Time magazine created a list of the 50 worst inventions. Included among the most terrible creations that human ingenuity has ever come up with are plastic grocery bags, sub-prime mortgages, hydrogenated oils, and pop-up ads. Now letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s switch our attention to your personal equivalents of these monstrosities. To climax the atonement phase of your own astrological cycle, I recommend that you do the following: 1. Identify the three worst ideas you have taken seriously during the past decade. 2. Carry out one formal action to correct or make amends for the consequences of each bad idea. 3. Really, truly, forgive yourself as best as you can. A/57BB/@7CA(Nov. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 21): For your assignment this week, I have borrowed from a list of suggestions offered by Sagittarius poet Kenneth Patchen in his book The Journal of Albion Moonlight. Feel free to improvise as you carry out at least three. 1. Discourage all traces of shame. 2. Bear no cross. 3. Extend all boundaries. 4. Blush perpetually in gaping innocence. 5.

1/>@71=@<(Dec. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Jan. 19): Among Google searches starting with the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;who is,â&#x20AC;? the top-rated is â&#x20AC;&#x153;God,â&#x20AC;? while â&#x20AC;&#x153;Satanâ&#x20AC;? is a distant tenth. Running ahead of Satan but behind God are Lady Gaga and Justin Beiber. If I were you, Capricorn, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be Google-searching any bigger-than-life entities like those four in the coming week. The characters you need to research are non-divine, non-celebrity types who might bring interesting inf luences into your lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;people who would have a direct inf luence on your access to resources and on your ability to call forth the best from yourself. /?C/@7CA(Jan. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Feb. 18): Explorers found a 30,000-year-old carved stone artifact in a German cave and brought it to the University of Tubingen for study. Experts there determined that it had a dual purpose for the ancient humans who made it. Phallic-shaped with rings around one end, it was obviously a sex toy. But other markings indicated it was also used to start fires by striking it against f lints. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to make this power object your symbol of the week, Aquarius. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a phase when you should be alert for ways to mix business with pleasure and practicality with adventure. >7A13A(Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20): Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not exceptionally scared of the dark, Pisces, but sometimes you seem to be intimidated by the light. You can summon the spunky courage to go crawling on your hands and knees through dank tunnels and spooky caves in quest of treasure thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s covered in primordial goo, but you may play hard to get when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re offered the chance to unburden yourself of your cares in wide-open spaces. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up with that? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of your capacity to wrestle with the shadows in the land of the lost; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gratified by your willingness to work your karma to the bone. But I would also love you to get a share of rejuvenating rest and ease now and then. Do you think you could manage to have it both ways? I do. 6][Se]`Y(4]`]\SeSSY^`SbS\Rb] OZ`SORgPSa][SbVW\Ug]c¸`S]\g]c` eOgb]PSQ][W\U@S^]`bg]c``SacZba PgU]W\Ub]4`SSeWZZOab`]Z]UgQ][O\R QZWQYW\UÂľ3[OWZ@]PÂś
