says Keeley. Depending on how palatable the final product is, the governor and Legislature will either vote it up or down as a whole or break it down to chew, digest and vote on piecemeal. On the California Forward side of things, the group is putting together ballot measures for 2010 designed to limit lawmaker spending, force politicians to explain how their programs will be paid for and give local governments more control over tax dollar allocation. There is also a possibility the group will have a ballot measure that will eliminate the two-thirds majority needed to pass a state budget, a rule shared only by Arkansas and Rhode Island and one that has become increasingly unpopular over the course of the crisis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a distortion of democracy,â&#x20AC;? says Keeley. The group is still trying to decide whether to recommend a simple 50 percentâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;plus one majority or a slightly higher 55 percent. Still a third effort,

Raspberries Over Strawberries As two berry festivals prepare to face off this weekend, we review their short, messy history 0G83AA71/:CAA3<6=>


T STARTED OUT, simply enough, as a celebration of the crop that put Watsonville back on the map. The Monterey Bay Strawberry Festival had enjoyed 14 summers of peace and prosperity in various locations in and around town, where many of the men and women who pick the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top crop live and work, and where nationally renowned apple orchards had once reigned supreme. But in these not-so-innocent times, the festival became divided against itself, and in the chaos two competing festivals have emerged: festival promoter Leslie Peterson leading the Monterey Bay Berry Festival on the one side and city leaders championing the Watsonville Strawberry Festival at Monterey Bay on the other. Both are to be held this weekend. One festival will claim victory, the other will be ridden out of town on a rail (maybe). But the dust will not settle come Monday morn. Peterson is all but certain to sue, the City Council is mired in in-fighting and allegations of racism have entered into this very strangest of food fights. Suffice to say, the situation has gotten berry, berry sticky. Where did the rot slip in? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recap. Flashback: the year was 2008, the president was George W. Bush and the Watsonville City Council had decided it was time the city came into its own, strawberry festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;wise. In an Oct. 28 vote, the council decided to move the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;Watsonvilleâ&#x20AC;? to the fore of the festival name â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monterey Bay Strawberry Festivalâ&#x20AC;? in order to better promote a city whose reputation has suffered from gang violence. The festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promoter, Leslie Peterson, objected because of what he said were business and marketing reasons. Things quickly turned from sweet to sour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I say, Forget you,â&#x20AC;? said Councilmember Antonio Rivas presciently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be running the strawberry festival. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need him.â&#x20AC;? Though Peterson ultimately backed down, in late May, when he announced his decision to pluck the festival from Watsonvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ramsay Park and move it to the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds just outside of town, the city called foul and fired him for breach of contract.


â&#x20AC;&#x153;What else might be done without our knowledge, with the city of Watsonvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name on it?â&#x20AC;? said Councilmember Kimberly Petersen of the decision. Promoter Peterson announced almost immediately that his festival would move ahead as scheduled, and after a 6-1 council vote, the city countered that it would hold its own Strawberry Festival in downtown Watsonville, same Battime, same Bat-channel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was probably the most foolish decision they could have made,â&#x20AC;? said Peterson. Foolish or not, the line was drawn in the sand. Councilmember Manuel Bersamin is in hot soup for writing to Petersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headlining act, Malo, asking them to pull out of the festival run by the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anglo promoterâ&#x20AC;? and instead support the City Council, which is â&#x20AC;&#x153;fighting to uplift our Raza.â&#x20AC;? And Peterson, who says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already taken a financial hit, is winding up to pitch the final, and perhaps inevitable, curveball in this parable: a lawsuit. Bersamin may be due for council censure, Councilmember Emilio Martinez is asking for his resignation and the Op-

Ed pages of the Register-Pajaronian are buzzing with local movers and shakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; opinions about whether this is about being Latino or Anglo or just loco. But in the meantime, county residents and tourists are left with a choice as epic as Coke vs. Pepsi: Which berry festival will earn their attendance? There are a few helpful differences. The Berry Festival will have national name acts such as Malo, El Sapo and Richard Bean, while the Strawberry Festival will have, in Petersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words, â&#x20AC;&#x153;a bunch of 7-year-old girlsâ&#x20AC;? performing (well, that plus a clutch of local bands). The Strawberry Festival will have beer and wine for sale by the Freedom Rotary club, while the Berry Festival goers will be high and dry. The Berry Festival will host full-blown carnival rides, while the city has opted for tamer, family-oriented rides like the Merry-GoRound. And the nonprofits have been cleaved neatly down the middle in terms of who is fundraising where. Now only time will tell which festival will lord it over the other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year, one will be successful and one will not,â&#x20AC;? predicts Pajaro Valley Chamber of

Commerce director Jerry Beyersdorff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The event that is not as successful will decide, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Do we want to do this again or do we want to make an accommodation with the other event?,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which is what I would hope for.â&#x20AC;? And we are left to ask, at the end of the day: all this over a berry festival? More importantly, which one should we go to? To those members of the festival-going public lost in the maze of seeds and stems, we offer a helping hand (page 14) and wish all involved a berry lovely time. ¨ "

B6=A3E6=93:>B63;A3:D3A Local artists like Kirk McNeill, whose work is shown above, lead hands-on workshops as part of this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Art Extravaganza.

Garden of Artsy Delights Art play among the succulents 0G;/C@33<2/D72A=<


HIS WEEKEND, grownups and children alike can plunge their hands into wet goop and shape it into musical instruments good for a lifetime of whistling, shaking and general merriment, or perhaps make like Monet with loaded palettes and paintbrushes to capture the glory not of Givenchy but of Watsonville reveling in midsummer bounty. Dad always warned against playing with melting candle wax because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d burn, right? But hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chance to sculpt it into Rodinesque figures working from a live model or layer its milkily transparent richness over photos and drawings to make encaustic paintings. Have a window that needs a dazzling glass mosaic? Make it. Or fashion a garden sculpture out of plastery gunk and chickenwire. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to release that pentup child into the garden of creativity. The Art Extravaganza is two days and 21 one-to-five-hour workshops, with a dozen ongoing art demonstrations and slide presentations for adults and children in the sprawling gardens of Watsonvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sierra Azul Nursery. Here the spirits-

lifting outdoor sculpture exhibition, Sculpture Is, sprouts over 100 artworks of all conceivable materials and styles amid colorful shrubs, succulents and towering trees. The exhibit and the Art Extravaganza are presented by the Pajaro Valley Arts Council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever been anything like this,â&#x20AC;? says Susana Arias, a widely exhibited Santa Cruz sculptor and this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-curator of Sculpture Is. She organized the Extravaganza as the next logical step in the four-year development of the extraordinary confluence of art and nature that Sculpture Is has become. Like the 14-year old, six-acre Mediterranean-inspired demonstration garden and nursery located across from the Watsonville fairgrounds, the Sculpture Is exhibition has matured beautifully; the exhibition is now considered one of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most important art events. The Rydell Fund of the Community Foundation of Santa Cruz County awarded them a grant twice the amount that the Pajaro Valley Arts Council requested.

B3/163@43/BC@3 Anna Martin, creator of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Currents,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; leads a workshop in hydrostone sculpture on Saturday.

Jeff Roendale, Sierra Azul Nursery owner, has been co-curator of the Sculpture Is each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have always loved the way that sculpture interacts with nature in a garden settingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much life to it, a contrasting expression of beauty, one that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be cultivated,â&#x20AC;? he says. As a businessman, he also hopes that the exhibition will encourage more homeowners to invest in sculpture for their own gardens. He sets the example; each year he purchases works for Sierra Azulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing permanent collection. Co-curator Arias wanted to give the public a chance to have the experience of making art. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a tough time right now, we all need more positive things, to share positive experiences,â&#x20AC;? she says. Evidently others felt the same. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I began by approaching a few friends,â&#x20AC;? she continues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody volunteered.â&#x20AC;? The core grew to over 30 artists. Many, like Tobin Keller, Rose Sellery, Dale Bates and Andy Ruble, are among the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most beloved art teachers, expert in coaxing out that creative force in students and helping them succeed. They created the highly structured workshops that provide all materials and the guidance to

enable participants to enjoy themselves and walk away with something substantial. Workshops cost from $10 to $50, depending on the materials and the length. Since the opening reception for the exhibit in May, attended by more than 700 people, the workshops have been filling steadily. Some are already at capacity. However, observers are welcome at all workshops. Some, like Marilyn Kukshtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s metal sculpture using wirefeed welding, or the ongoing drawing or painting from a posing professional model, are open for drop-in participants. Free demonstrations take place throughout both days.

THE PVACâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S ART EXTRAVAGANZA is Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sunday, Aug. 1â&#x20AC;&#x201C;2, 10amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5pm, at Sierra Azul Nursery and Garden, 2660 E. Lake Ave., Watsonville (across from the Fairgrounds). Enroll at www.pvarts .org or 831.722.3062. (Note this is also the weekend of the Monterey Bay Berry Festival at the Fairgrounds; plan travel time accordingly.)

Stranger Than Fiction @@8=<3A

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Shipwrecked!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; maroons audience on island of laughs in SSC production 0G1C@B7A1/@B73@


HEY SAY truth is often stranger than fiction. But in a tale told by master raconteur Louis de Rougemont, both fact and fantasy have their place. Explorer, seaman, survivalist and con artist, de Rougemont, as played by seasoned television and stage actor Dierk Torsek, spins his greatest yarn ever in Shakespeare Santa Cruzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of Shipwrecked! An Entertainment: The Amazing Adventures of Louis de Rougement (As Told by Himself). The play was a hit with the sold-out crowd at its July 24 opening at UCSCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s indoor Theatre Arts Mainstage. The only non-Shakespeare play to be part of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SSC festivities, the production, which was written by Pulitzer Prize winner Donald Margulies, was for all intents a beautifully animated extended monologue by Torsek. The story follows de Rougemont, who serves as both the main character and the narrator, on a fantastic, if wildly embellished, adventure that takes him from the bustling streets of London to a pearling ship off the coast of Australia to a deserted island in New Guinea to an aboriginal camp in the Outback and back again to England. Aided by a mere four additional actors, each playing no fewer than five roles apiece, the play triumphed in its use of simple means to tell an epic story. Torsekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acting, especially considering his curtain-to-curtain stage time, was dazzling. With a booming, Britishaccented voice, the white-bearded actor gave vivid life to lines that were joyful, terrified, witty, dejected, vengeful and desperate. He showed a palpable bond with his old mother, the dog Bruno, his aboriginal wife and even an

awestruck little boy he meets in London. Moments in the play, like a delightfully choreographed wedding dance ceremony and a sea-turtle-riding grand finale, were particularly moving. The rest of the cast performed superbly as well, with the only criticisms residing in a few upstaged visuals and a couple of stuttered lines. Perhaps best loved was the adorably loyal hound Bruno. Played by Mike Ryan in an orange, earflapped winter hat, Bruno dog-paddled through the water with his drowning master, barked at menacing aborigines and regularly showered de Rougemont with lickings. Karen Aldridge, who played a multitude of roles, also shone as the salty sea captain and island wife of de Rougemont. Aside from Torsekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brilliant portrayal, the playâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest success was in its set design. Made up of a simple wooden floor strewn with changing arrangements of travel boxes and suitcases, the stage was backed by a clothesline hung with sheets and flanked by odd items like sheet metal and cowhide drums, which were used for sound effects. Like the supporting characters themselves, each piece of the set also had several different roles. The travel boxes were stacked and used to form a massive sailing ship, a blazing

campfire and even an English bathtub. The clothesline curtain at one point was crowned with several colorful masks, becoming instantly a group of tribal elders. And the stage itself, with the aid of innovative lighting and shadow puppetry, was everything from a roiling ocean to a crowded street. The story, though undeniably comical, told a deeper and more poignant tale of deception. By combining elements of books heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d read and stories heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d heard, de Rougement sprinkles his mild three-year adventure with romantic ornamentations and a few outright lies. Yet the lesson learned by the end of the play, with an impoverished de Rougemont discredited, broken and perhaps senile, is that the difference between fact and fiction is only a minor detail. The story itself is the most valuable thing of all.

:/@37</ THE STADIUM lights glare and erase the presence of an audience as every muscular contour of a left jab from Carina Moreno becomes visible. Is it really the glare of the stadium lights or just the skylight and track lighting? While the subject matter of W. Scott Berryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carina Moreno/ringside,â&#x20AC;? stands in stark contrast to the mood music and dĂŠcor of LuLuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the Octagon, the actual layout of the photos along six walls just works. The action shots lend themselves to a movie reelâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;style feeling as the viewerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes track the 21 black-and-white silver gelatin prints around the circular room. Moreno herselfâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;daughter of the Moreno family famous for its Water Street taqueria and a rising star in boxingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is in fine fettle. In a photo taken at a bout in San Jose against Mayela PerĂŠz, her arm makes a powerful horizontal line straight to her opponentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face; the startling image is further accentuated by the pitch-black background. By far my favorite is an image labeled as a training session sometime in July of 2006. Silhouetted against the open training room door, Morenoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upper body seems to radiate light. Despite her blurred torso, the focus on her dancing legs and feet is sharp. Leaving the Octagon, visitors cannot help but notice one picture completely different from all the rest. Slightly blurred up close, Moreno appears in a very feminine and vulnerable photo. Eyes closed and relaxed, she uses a towel to wipe her face during practice. Some of her hair has escaped in wisps from the bun she wears. The ropes of the ring on the left and the beams on the right sides frame her soft-lit face, bringing the observer back to the focus: Carina Moreno, Watsonville boxer. (Kat Lynch)

W. SCOTT BERRYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhibition CARINA MORENO/RINGSIDE is on display through Sunday, Aug.16, at LuLuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the Octagon, 118 Cooper St., Santa Cruz. Free.

He and his group of enlightened teachers, the Masters of Wisdom, are returning to the everyday world to help us solve our most critical global problems. They are here to inspire us to create a new civilization based on sharing and justice, so that all may have the basic necessities of life: food, shelter, health care, and education.



This is the moment awaited by Maitreya, the World Teacher, for his public emergence, says Benjamin Creme. Maitreya is a colossal cosmic avatar with limitless love and immeasurable wisdom, and at the same time is a friend and brother of humanity.

Look for a star-like luminary of brilliant power, visible in the sky night and day, as a sign that their open mission is about to begin.

A film in shining bad taste: thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;BrĂźnoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; @716/@2D=<0CA/19


ACHA BARON COHEN, late of Borat, plays an extra-tall, tousled-hair Aubrey Beardsley imp in BrĂźno. He purports to be the one-named BrĂźno, Austrian star of Funkyzeit, the most popular fashion show in the German-speaking lands (â&#x20AC;&#x153;except Germanyâ&#x20AC;?). He is a pasthis-prime, mid-1990s club kid, whose claim to fame was a tryst with Rob Pilatus of Milli Vanilli. (Brunoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sĂŠance with the ghost of the dead â&#x20AC;&#x153;singerâ&#x20AC;? is the kind of humor that staggers you too much to laugh.) Fired from his show, BrĂźno seeks greater fame. Run out of L.A. after a fateful celebrity interview with Paula Abdul, he goes first to Jordan to try to bring peace. He faces the problems of the Middle East commentator who confuses the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hamasâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;hummus.â&#x20AC;? On the basis of the fame of three big movie stars whose heterosexuality no one would like to bet their lives on, BrĂźno decides he must be converted to straightness in order to succeed. The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beguiling bad taste includes the hero trying to tackle some of Rev. Phelpsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fag-hating f lock, while naked and draped with more chains than Marleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ghost. Cohenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice dog-German is classic even by this standard comic gold mine: â&#x20AC;&#x153;arseschwitz,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;arschenhowerâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;schtinkerâ&#x20AC;? are all terms for the same much-f launted part of BrĂźnoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anatomy. The finale is the sweetest spot. Cohen does a mass chumping of a Ft. Smith, Ark., auditorium to the music of Celine Dionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest hit. This dangerous-looking scene gets into the real dirt of anti-gay prejudice. Cohenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drastic comedy insists that all the worst fears of gay haters are true and screws that point down. It argues that gay people are into f lagrantly

PALE HORSE, PALE RIDER Sacha Baron Cohen gets on his high horse for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;BrĂźno.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

bizarre sexual practicesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;practices that that surpass even an Internet surferâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty good knowledge of what his fellow earthlings get up to. It insists that gay people will try to recruit straight people relentlessly, and that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tease and seduce even the violently uninterested. BrĂźno, then, is not a plea for understanding, but a shout of rage. There canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be anything playful in this urge to incite fury or to be hounded out into the night by security guards and everyday joe-sixpacks alike. Watching Cohen in his disguise is like reading H.L. Menckenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;amusement at the rude wit is followed by nauseated despair at universal gullibility. Even Congressman Ron Paul, whom so many had set their hopes on, swallows BrĂźnoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bait like a starved crappie. But

the congressman looks sad, shabby and gray as he falls for it; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little comedy in an aged congressman sitting on the edge of a hotel bed at the behest of someone he thinks will help his career. One can be slightly cheered by less well-known citizens who mustâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you prayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;have either been in on the joke or had enough good humor to play dumb for this amazing Technicolor Teutonic faun.

BRĂ&#x153;NO (R; 83 min.), directed by Larry Charles, written by Sacha Baron Cohen, Anthony Hines, et al., photographed by Anthony Hardwick and Wolfgang Held and starring Cohen, plays countywide.

Fri 7/31 & Sat 8/1 @ Midnight Next Week: The Thing

A movie with this title can only mean one of three things: (a) PBS, having run completely out of ideas, is hiring extraterrestrials to travel around and appraise family heirlooms; (b) James Cameron, having run completely out of ideas, has reshot his 1986 science-fiction hit in his momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loft; or (c) Hollywood, having run completely out of ideas, is desperately trying to combine the

alien-invasion genre with family fun. OK, the answerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;c,â&#x20AC;? but it would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;aâ&#x20AC;? if PBS had thought of it. (Opens Fri at Santa Cruz 9, Scotts Valley and Green Valley.) (SP) B631=::31B=@(R;

146 min.) Forget Adam Sandlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return to an actual dramatic role, what shocks everybody about this movie is the trailer that reminds

them this is only â&#x20AC;&#x153;the third film from the director of Knocked Up and The 40-Year-Old Virgin.â&#x20AC;? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all sitting there going, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wait, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Judd Apatow make every comedy now? No? Then why the hell is Seth Rogan in all of them?â&#x20AC;?

you do youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss the sweet nothings of odd comedy that made this a groundbreaking movie. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something naked, hanging out and embarrassed about the humor in Wes Anderson and Owen Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scripts. Their characters are always trying to hide so much from each other, to make everyone see them exactly as they want to be seen rather than how they really are. But how they really are canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but slip out a little bit at a time, and the high/low in the comic timing

And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to â&#x20AC;&#x153;getâ&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; you might want to nod a lot and tap your fingers on your lips to make sure everyone knows that you do! Just a tip! Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this one about, you ask? Well, like it matters, but if you must know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about a student whose mysterious family history becomes a class project and an Internet sensation. Did I mention itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mysterious? And important! Like my name! Atom Egoyan! Peace out! (SP) /E/GE35=(R;

98 min.) Burt (John Krasinski), an alternainsurance broker, and his pregnant mate, the dour, nervous Verona (Maya Rudolph) seek a community. Sadly, they learn that America is a beautiful country full of ugly people. Not enough jokes, by a long chalk. Alison Janney, the standout, as a sharptongued mom, is only temporary relief from the two leads: the moral and physical center of

this movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s universe. The writers are San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dave Eggers and his wife, Vendela Vida, who seek the wonder and freshness in aged platitudes about the innocence of children. (RvB) 0@s<= (R; 82 min.)

One of the grand horizontals of Parisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Belle Epoque, Lea de Lonval (Michelle Pfeiffer) is ready for retirement and a hobby. She picks a ruinous kind: the care and feeding of a beautiful, diffident young man, nicknamed ChĂŠri (Rupert Friend). ChĂŠri is the son of Madame Peloux, Leaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frenemy. In Cheri, director Stephen Frears reunites with scriptwriter Christopher Hampton and star Pfeiffer to revisit the type of games all three of them played 20 years ago in Dangerous Liaisons. The film brings out Pfeifferâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gloriousness, her translucent skin, the limbs and hair still golden. Yet Kathy Batesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Madame Peloux walks away with this picture, not that she does much walking. She spends a good deal of the film with feet propped up, a half-smile on her face. (RvB) #2/GA=4 AC;;3@(PG-13; 95

min.) Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a greeting-card writer, has his heart broken by a girl he knew for about two years. She was called Summer (Zooey Deschanel), and she drifted in and out of his embrace and finally out of his life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s either an evil, emotionless human being or sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a robot,â&#x20AC;? Tom sums up. As he recalls this antilove story in randomaccessed moments, we begin to see the bigger picture. (500) Days of Summer is the best of a lot that includes Away We Go and Juno. It might have been about the same one-dimensional romance chronicled in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sudden reverse angle. At long last, we learn why there was a good reason Summer kept her

distance. She expresses it in a handsomely curt sentence, a real epitaph to a relationship. (RvB) 4==27<1 (PG; 101 min.) The most necessary film of the summer. The outrages of corporate food production are exposed in this fast and infuriating documentary by Robert Kenner, who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be accused of starry-eyed idealism. Food, Inc. reminds that if the United States could make Big Tobacco come to heel, then agribusinessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wasteful and deadly practices can be stopped. (RvB) B636/<5=D3@(R;

100 min.) A satisfyingly low comedy with a sturdy plot and the wit to realize that the Three Stooges format is solid gold.Stick with it, since the first third is hit and miss; later, director Todd Phillips solidly builds the situations, thinking up strategies to bolster the risky comedy. (RvB) 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. However, The Hurt Locker takes an essentially knightly view of the war, of men suiting up and closing their visors. Thus this is the first Iraq film an American audience can feel good about. Boalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s script does discover the hollow inside the brave James: the missing part


comes from when the characters are at their most manic or most depressed. Rushmore is perhaps the pinnacle of this balance so far, as their previous film Bottle Rocket leans toward the manic and The Royal Tennenbaums settles into depression. Still, at least all of those films gain meaning and yuks over repeat viewingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;by The Life Aquatic, Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s increasingly glacial style has finally ground into inertia. (Plays Fri and Sat midnight at the Del Mar.) (SP)

that made him never stop to realize why he did his job. That final revelation is smart filmmaking. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that the hollow inside this movieâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;inside almost all the war movies, even the good onesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as easily seen. If war is a drug, as The Hurt Locker claims, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pushing it? (RvB) 713/53(2/E<=4 B6327<=A/C@A(PG;

94 min.) Many Internet posters are extremely angry that this third film in the popular animated series shows ice-age mammals and dinosaurs existing at the same time, which of course they did not. Fans, meanwhile, say they should get over itâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;after all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a documentary, right? Right, except for the part about Ray Romano being trapped in the Ice Age, which will soon be true, since I am building a time machine for the sole purpose of sending him there. (SP) ;==<(R; 97 min.)

Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is a miner, assigned to a three-year shift on the dark side of the moon. His only companion is a living computer named Gerty, with an emoticon face and measured, ambiguous voice by Kevin Spacey. Sam is counting the days until he gets to go home, but matters start to go wrong. Already, communications with the Earth (and with his beloved wife) are fritzing out, and he sees strange glimpses of another figure through the stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monitors. The film has its points. Director/writer Duncan Jones does bring home the moon on $5 million. He did this with oldfashioned ideas like the use of miniatures and a lunar set. Some fans of Moon argue that its not the technique, or the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s derivative sourcing that matters, as much as what the film has to say about identity. It makes you wonder: how much science fiction writing do science fiction film fans read? Like all horror stories, Moon must face that terrible point where the audience says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;There must be a reasonable explanation for this.â&#x20AC;? Ultimately, Jones gives



us the reasonable explanation, but he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t supply a great final twist on a story that would have been deft at 60 minutes on The Outer Limits. (RvB) B63>@=>=A/:(PG-

(R; 141 min.) Michael Mannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; carries out this study of John Dillingerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career from its middle to its end in darting, little-cam movements. The photography often uses high-def synthetic light: yellowish-white flares of gun bursts and gritty magenta torches burning. Surfaces come to mindâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what this skin-deep film gives you when you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear the dialogue or canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell who the new characters are supposed to be. In numberless close-ups, Johnny Depp emphasizes surface, too. The movie makes the master bank robber a gent, a showman, an ardent monogamous lover; when he takes hostages, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to relieve them of the humdrumness of their lives. But Public Enemies never takes us hostage;

it never establishes that link it reaches for, the link between those hard times and ours. (RvB) B3B@= (Unrated; 134 min.) Francis Ford Coppolaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new work is set in Buenos Aires. Bennie (Alden Ehrenreich), a waiter on a cruise ship, descends on his long-lost halfbrother, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renamed himself Tetro (Vincent Gallo). This brokenlegged lone wolf winds his way through a series of cafes, having written off the writing life. His adoring wife Miranda (Maribel Verdu) tries to smooth the roughness between the brothers, but Bennieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own ambition to become a writer inflames matters. Decrypting a hidden stash of notes for an open-ended modernist novel, Bennie discovers the truth about his own family. (RvB) B@/<A4=@;3@A( @3D3<53=4B63 4/::3<(PG-13; 150

min.) Off to college goes young Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) trying to forget the trauma of watching the robots destroy L.A. The government covered it up. Sadly, a chip of the spark cube stuck to Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shirt, and that Opens the whole mess over

again: indistinguishable robot-clobber with warlike threats. Manly Air Force officers in camouflage strut in slomo amid more cargo planes than one would see in an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Army of Oneâ&#x20AC;? commercial.(RvB) B63C5:GB@CB6(R; 96 min.) After getting stuck with Seth Rogan as an arrested-development geek in her last romantic comedy, Katherine Heigl now gets Gerard Butler as a douchebag radio personality. This woman deserves combat pay. (SP) C>(PG; 96 min.) During

the last Depression, a reject kid named Carl becomes fascinated with that darling of the newsreels, the intrepid dirigible pilot Charles Muntz, who discovered the bones of an immense bird in South America and was declared a fraud. Fast-forward and Carl (voiced by Ed Asner) is a square-headed, Spencer Tracy lookalike of 78. When trouble comes, he escapes in the only direction open to himâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;straight up, with his battered house as the gondola to thousands of balloons, Unfortunately, a pesky 7-year-old scout, Russell (Jordan Nagai), is clinging to the front porch. The pair land in

South America, where they discover a 13-foottall iridescent goonie bird and eventually Muntz himself (Christopher Plummer). The news that Up is one of the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best films isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really news; Pixar has faith in an audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to feel without being manipulatedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes them more than just a studio with an unusually dazzling command of the vocabulary of animation. (RvB) E6/B3D3@E=@9A

(PG-13; 92 min.) Very minor and musty but often funny misanthropy comedy by Woody Allen. Larry David plays Boris, formerly a physics professor; today, he is retired, a free-range castigator, living in a brick-lined vault in Manhattanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chinatown. A waif called Melodie (Evan Rachel Wood) drops into his lap; she takes Borisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; imprint completelyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;his rants, his phobias and his dislike of sexâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and marries him. A year afterward, the in-laws arrive (Patricia Clarkson and Ed Begley Jr.), While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often canned corn, give it its props; Allen knows how to make a civilized comedy even when denouncing civilization.

/@73A(March 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;April 19): Are you a gelatinous pool of longing yet? Are you a perfumed garden of madly blooming purple explosions? Are you throbbing and gooey and half-nauseous with that delicious sickness some people called love? If not, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to tell you. By all astrological reckoning your gut should be swarming with drunk butterflies and the clouds should be taking on the shapes of mating horses. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not half-drowning in these symptoms, I implore you to find a way to pry open the floodgates.

In fact, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m playing with the fantasy that you are now the living embodiment of a lucky charm. At no other time in recent memory have you had so much power to reverse the effects of perverse karma, bad habits and just plain negative vibes. Your hands and eyes are charged with good medicine. Other parts of you are, too, which means sexual healing could be in the works. But as you embark on your mission to cure everyone you love, remember the first law of the soul doctor: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Physician, heal thyself.â&#x20AC;?

Cheryl Stromstad- Snyder Designer Lemonade Turn life events into meaningful experiences for personal growth.

53;7<7(May 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;June 20): The Norwegians used to have a concept called svoermere, which meant something sweetly futile or deliciously unprofitable. While I can see the appeal that your particular version of svoermere has had for you, Gemini, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to think about moving on. According to my reading of the omens, you have both a right and a duty to seek out more constructive pleasures that not only make you feel really good but also serve your long-term goals. 1/<13@(June 21â&#x20AC;&#x201C;July 22): Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Freedom from Want Week! For Cancerians only! During this uncanny grace period, you might actually feel perfectly contented. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite possible that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be free from the obsession to acquire more security, more love, more proof of your greatness, more tchotchkes, more everything. You may even make the shocking discovery that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need nearly as much as you thought you did in order to be happy; that maybe you have a lot to learn about getting more out of what you already have.

:3=(July 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Aug. 22): Would you like to spend the next 30 years working your assets off to make your bosses rich? If not, I suggest you start formulating Plan B immediately. The astrological time is not exactly ripe to extricate yourself from the wicked game, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ripe to begin scheming and dreaming about how to extricate yourself. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tip to get you in the mood. Assume that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some validity in the meme that mythologist Joseph Campbell articulated: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Follow your bliss and the money will come.â&#x20AC;? Then ask yourself, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do I even know what my bliss is? Not my mild joy or diversionary fun but my unadulterated bliss?â&#x20AC;? Once you know that, you can follow it. And then, inevitablyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;although it may take a whileâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the money will follow.

D7@5=(Aug. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Sept. 22): As the season of riddles and paradoxes kicks into high gear, I present you with a two-part quiz. Question 1: Since it has taken you your whole life to become the person you are today, is it reasonable to expect that you can transform yourself in a flash? Question 2: On the other hand, since you are more creative than you give yourself credit for, and are also in an astrological phase when your ability to change is greater than usual, is it reasonable to assume that you must remain utterly stuck in your old ways of doing things? :70@/(Sept. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Oct. 22): So much to say and do. So little time. Is it OK if I pepper you with pithy hints? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only way to fit everything in. Here goes. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strength in numbers, Libra. So travel in packs. Round up support and whip up group fervor. Always say â&#x20AC;&#x153;we,â&#x20AC;? not â&#x20AC;&#x153;I.â&#x20AC;? Add at least one new friend and bolster at least one old friendship. Think before you act, but always act instead of watching from afar. Avoid doing stupid things in smart ways. To court good luck, do charity work. To ensure that extra favors will come your way later this year, do extra favors now. A1=@>7=(Oct. 23â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Nov. 21): The biblical book of Isaiah prophesies a future time of undreamed-of harmony and cooperation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wolf will romp with

By Rob Brezsny

the lamb,â&#x20AC;? reads one translation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cow and bear will graze in the same pasture, their calves and cubs will grow up together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox.â&#x20AC;? I have it on good astrological authority that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now eligible for a preview of this paradisiacal state. To receive your free introductory offer, you need only meet one condition. You must vow not to harm any living thingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not even a cockroach. Not even the person you love best.

A/57BB/@7CA(Nov. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Dec. 21): You Sagittarians are famous for filling your cups too full. Sometimes this is cute. Sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a problem for those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like cabernet sauvignon sloshed on their handwoven Persian rugs. This week, however, I predict there will be little or no hell to pay for overflowing. So go ahead and transcend your containers, you beautiful exaggerators. Feel free to express yourself like a fire hose. Now enjoy a few gems from your fellow Sagittarius, the extravagant poet and painter William Blake. 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.â&#x20AC;? 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Exuberance is beauty.â&#x20AC;? 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The lust of the goat is the bounty of God.â&#x20AC;? 4. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never know what is enough unless you know what is more than enough.â&#x20AC;? 1/>@71=@<(Dec. 22â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Jan. 19): Constant vigilance, my friend. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I advise. Be attentive to details you sometimes gloss over. Wake up a little earlier and prepare for each encounter with greater forethought. Stare a little harder into the hearts of all those whose hidden motivations might detour your destiny. Monitor every communication for hints that all is not as it seems. Most importantly, guard against the possibility that you may be overlooking a gift or blessing thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being offered to you in an indirect way. /?C/@7CA(Jan. 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Feb. 18): â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keep exploring what it takes to be the opposite of who you are,â&#x20AC;? suggests psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of the book Creativity: Flow and the Psychology of Discovery and Invention. This advice is one of his ideas about how to get into attunement with the Tao, also known as being in the zone or getting in the groove or being aligned with the great cosmic flow. How would you go about being the opposite of who you are, Aquarius? According to my reading of the omens, that will be an excellent question for you to muse about in the coming weeks. As you stretch yourself to embody the secret and previously unknown parts of you, I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be pleased with how much more thoroughly that allows you to be in sync with the rhythms of life. >7A13A(Feb. 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;March 20): Internet addiction has risen to epidemic proportions in China. In early 2009, psychologists in Shandong province began offering an alleged cure that involved the use of electroshock therapy. Parents of 3,000 young people paid Dr. Yang Yongxin and his team over $800 a month to hook their anesthetized teens up to machines that sent electricity through their brains to induce artificial seizures. After four months, the Chinese government intervened and halted the treatment, noting that there was no evidence it worked. This practice might sound comically barbaric to you, but I think it has a certain resemblance to the way you have been dealing with your own flaws and excesses: with inordinate force. In the coming weeks, I really think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important not to punish yourself for any reason, Pisces, even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a supposedly good cause. The lesson of the Chinese experiment is: not only is it overkill, it also doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have the desired effect.
