‘Bull Durham’ has always been a great movie

— now, it’s entering

the canon BY ALYSSA ROSENBERG The Washington Post

MAY 17–30, 2018

Try to define what counts as a classic work of art, and you’re virtually guaranteed an argument. But in film, one potential measure is whether a movie makes it into the Criterion Collection, a series of carefully preserved and presented home-viewing editions of “the defining moments of cinema.” So it was with total delight that I learned that Ron Shelton’s “Bull Durham,” one of the greatest movies ever made about baseball, a brilliant romantic comedy and a film that stands as a rebuke to many of the false choices the entertainment industry now seems to take for granted, is getting a Criterion Collection release in July. “Bull Durham” takes place over a single summer, or more precisely, over a season for the Durham Bulls minor league baseball team. It concerns a love triangle among the team’s biggest fan and part-time English professor Annie Savoy (Susan Sarandon), rookie pitcher Ebby Calvin LaLoosh (Tim Robbins) and aging catcher Crash Davis (Kevin Costner), assigned to prepare LaLoosh for the majors. Annie, who takes a new player as a lover each summer, identifies the two as “the most promising prospects of the season so far.” And though she ends up with LaLoosh, whom she nicknames “Nuke,” when Crash explains that “after 12 years in the minor leagues, I don’t try out,” she can’t get the older man out of her head — not least because he sees baseball the same way she does: as the encapsulation of a

certain American idea and a particular approach to life. It’s easy to get hagiographic about the national past-time, and part of the charm of “Bull Durham” is that Annie makes the idea of baseball as a religion literal instead of metaphoric. “There are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball,” she explains in the movie’s iconic opening monologue. “When I learned that, I gave Jesus a chance. But it didn’t work out between us. The Lord laid too much guilt on me. I prefer metaphysics to theology. You see, there’s no guilt in baseball, and it’s never boring.” But unlike some other, more saccharine baseball movies, “Bull Durham” is sly enough to note that the game Americans have chosen to represent as our national character is full of cruelties, ironies and inherent disappointments. Bad trades are part of baseball, as Annie points out. Marginal differences in talent and marketability make the difference between being rewarded with immense riches and facing the fact that you’re considered worthless in middle age and the job you’ve had so far has given you few skills that will sustain you in another profession. “Bull Durham” knows that the story we tell ourselves about baseball and about America may be an opiate. Still, it sees the sweetness in the drug and in transcending it. One of the central insights of “Bull Durham” is that baseball and sex and romance are of equal interest to men and women.

This is not a movie where a woman blithely wanders into a male realm she knows nothing about and finds love, nor one where a hard-bitten professional man finds himself distracted by a woman who reminds him that domestic life has its charms. Instead, Annie and Crash are both deeply knowledgeable about baseball history and the technical aspects of the game, even if they disagree about the best way to improve Nuke’s performance. “Bull Durham” is


MAY 17–30, 2018


a love triangle, with Nuke and Crash competing for Annie’s attention, but it’s also a triangle built around mentorship, with Crash and Annie jostling for preeminence in Nuke’s journey to the big leagues. When “Bull Durham” begins, Annie’s summer romances are based on the idea that she has something to impart to the young men she takes into her bed, but that she might not get equal care and insight in return. And when Crash arrives in Durham, he’s suspicious of the idea that this particular woman has set herself up as an expert on the game he has devoted his life to. Before they can be together,

each needs to evolve. Annie has to reach a place where she recognizes that a man could give her as much as she gives him. And as he nears the end of his playing career, Crash has to get to a point where he can recognize that Annie’s pride in his minor league accomplishments and her sense of the glorious metaphysics of baseball have helped restore his love of the game to him. There are a lot of things about “Bull Durham” that make it feel unmoored from the present moment: the clothes, the reference to Susan Sontag’s novels during a literary argument, the use of landline phones. But most

of all, the movie is unencumbered by some of the anxieties that burden contemporary moviemaking. “Bull Durham” makes no apology for being a romance movie; it takes for granted the idea that two grown-up people finding their way to each other, and finding new places for themselves in the world, is a subject of interest. The film is also comfortable assuming that its audience is literate and intelligent, that they know what quantum mechanics are and who Walt Whitman is, or at least that they’re not going to feel insulted when those terms get thrown around in conversation.

This is not a movie weighed down by the need to make sure that members of a certain demographic are lured into theaters. In 1988, “Bull Durham” pulled in almost $51 million at the box office, making it the 18th-highest grossing movie of the year. Maybe you can’t go back to 1988 again. Maybe it’s crazy to find glory in minor league baseball the way Annie Savoy does. But “Bull Durham” was one of the movies that made me love movies. If its enshrinement in the Criterion Collection reminds an executive somewhere in Hollywood that movies can still feel like this, then the whole idea of a canon might seem worth it.

The villain in “Avengers: Infinity War” is more nuanced than in most comic-book movies. Created from CGI motion capture, Thanos is voiced by Josh Brolin.







hat does Thanos want? That question lies at the heart of “Avengers: Infinity War,” the at-once dark, maddeningly open-ended yet fiercely entertaining new chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), which pits the titular global do-gooders— still scattered hither and yon after their 2016 falling-out with one another in “Captain America: Civil War”— against a cosmic villain who has been coyly signaling his evil intentions ever since the very first “Avengers” movie, in 2012. And that’s without ever really appearing on-screen, except in teasing cameos. Oh sure, everyone knows he wants the Infinity Stones. Or at least everyone who’s been paying attention to the previous 18 MCU movies. Ever since 2008’s “Iron Man,” these interconnected installments have introduced audiences to the six gemlike “singularities”: color-coded stones controlling power, space, time, mind, soul and reality. Taken collectively, these artifacts are the mother


of all MacGuffins— plot devices that drive the narrative, but may or may not have much to do with the true message of the story. But what does Thanos want with them? That question is answered, in a film that presents a villain in a more nuanced, complex (and arguably even sympathetic) way than most comic book movies do. That’s especially unexpected, given that he’s a purple alien (voiced by Josh Brolin), created from CGI motion-capture, with skin that looks like a cantaloupe. What is not unexpected is the film’s death toll. Fanboys and fangirls have already steeled themselves to the eventuality that favorite characters will die here. Opening with a distress call from the Asgardian refugee spaceship that was seen fleeing planetary destruction at the end of last year’s “Thor: Ragnarok,” “Infinity War” gets that outcome out of that way early, paving a path forward for a film that, while very funny for much of its 2 ½-hour running

time, ends on an almost stunningly somber note. It should be mentioned that there is already a sequel planned for next year that is likely to act as a corrective— short of bringing people back from the grave. In the manner of the second and third “Matrix” films, and the “Deathly Hallows” segments of the Harry Potter films, you can expect that upcoming movie to be more of a conclusion to a giant, two-part saga— complete with this installment’s cliffhanger ending— than a freestanding sequel. Death and destruction, of course, is what Thanos has in mind. But unlike many cartoonish villains, his motives, as explained in flashbacks and speeches, are not those of universal domination. Rather, he wants to kill half of the universe’s population— which is threatened by overpopulation and dwindling resources— to save the other half. His coldblooded calculation is not only a perversion of altruism— it’s an argument for extermination. But, for a superhero movie, the nuance with which the film

presents this horrible scenario is refreshing. As “Infinity War” gets underway, Thanos has already acquired the Power Stone and is seeking the other five— four of which are in the control of characters we know from previous films. The location of the sixth, or Soul Stone, has long been unknown, but it will bring Thanos the power he seeks, not to mention to a moral and emotional precipice that will probably strike many viewers as startling for a film of this kind. I heard audible gasps, more than once, at a recent press screening. I also heard lots of laughter. The entertainment media has made much of so-called Avengers Fatigue, from Marvel exhausting its storytelling capabilities— as well as our attention span. But brothers Anthony and Joe Russo, who return as codirectors after “Civil War” and its predecessor, “Winter Soldier,” move the pace briskly and with frequent levity, as heroes from various Marvel franchises keep throwing things— sometimes literally— at Thanos, and as the scene of the action

shifts from the “Guardians of the Galaxy” team’s spaceship to Black Panther’s African homeland of Wakanda to, at one point, Scotland. It is there that the synthetic humanoid known as Vision (Paul Bettany)— who wears the Mind Stone like a diadem on his forehead— and girlfriend Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), have gone off the grid. Needless to say, that cozy love nest won’t stay cozy long. “Infinity War” is big, blustery and brave, taking viewers to places that they may not be used to going. Whether Thanos ends up getting everything he wants is one thing. But audiences should be warned that they probably won’t. — Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post

called Ponyboy on Uptown 23rd next to the Tower Theatre. Luring folks into those entertainment districts is a snap, but drawing them to a part of the city newly minted for nightlife is a work in progress. “We know this area is prime for growth, but we’re just a little ahead of it,” Cope said. “So we thought we would expand our menutogive people some more reasons to come in and hang out.” Kitchen firing on all cylinders Chef Miguel Barrera has been in the kitchen since Revolucion opened, gradually working his way to the lead spot. He has ample support from 84 Hospitality corporate chef Chris Becker, who lent his considerable talents to make sure new items are not only delicious but potential Instagram pinups. The additions don’t remove LOOKATOKC.COM

Revolucion’s taqueria and cantina conception. Diners will still find plenty of both and perhaps even better than when the restaurant first opened. But now they are available on platters rather than just a la carte. Fillings come in carnitas (slow cooked pork), carne asada (grilled steak), picadillo (ground beef), chicken tinga and fish that’s either fried or pan-seared. Your choice of three comes with rice, beans and salsa verde for a little less than $12. However, you’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t start with Queso Fundido AND Picadillo Loaded Tots AND an order of Cochinita Pibil tostadas. One of the great developments in the last few years is the embrace of Queso Fundido by local Mexican restaurants. This is the real deal, a hot castiron skillet topped with bubblingChihuahua and Monterey jack cheeses is mixed with house-made chorizo, pickled jalapeno and served with flour tortillas. As for the tots, they get a heavy dose of chile dust before

they become a nest forpicadillo, fancy queso, pickled jalapeno, pickled onions and cilantro. Gulp. All that said, the Cochinita Pibil tostadas are the single best addition to the menu. They work as an app, but I can see getting an order of three for myself for lunch or dinner. A crisp fried corn tortilla is topped with black beans and pork that is slow roasted in citrus, achiote and red chile for hours plus pickled red onions and queso fresco crumbles. That’s really all I ever need, with just a little salsa verde on the side. The habit-forming green sauce comes from a recipe Barrera learned in his mother’s kitchen. The Torta Burger might be the coolest addition to the menu. Revolucion doesn’t pretend to represent authentic Latino culture. Rather, it takes inspiration from the generations who’ve made Mexican food so popular across the country and added Oklahoma hospitality and personality. First, understand hamburgers (called hamberguesas) are incredibly popular in Mexico

and the Hispanic culture, and tortas are Mexico’s most popular addition to the sub sandwich family. At Revolucion, the burger patty is a blend of ground beef and house-made chorizo. Barrera tops it with cucumberradish slaw, shredded lettuce, cilantro, mole mayonnaise, and a mound of the aforementioned chile-dusted tots. It’s a big, brawny, brunette bombshell local burgerphiles should be tripping over each other to test for themselves. Nachos, a burro and a quesadilla round out entree options, along with the fajitas Mexican restaurant law requires. Vegetarians will either have to shoo carnivorous tablemates away from their Oaxacan Pizza — a crispy 10-inch corn tortilla topped with black beans, lettuce, tomato, avocado, crema, salsa verde and queso fresco — or make them order their own with some meat added. But the dish you don’t want to miss is theCauliflower al Pastor. Ask for some flour tortillas to go along with this tender roasted cauliflower smothered in a fingertip-

smooching bacchanalia of red chile and pineapple. You’ll sop every drop, mixing and matching bites ofBecker’s divine quinoa salad and slices of grilled pineapple. Fiesta available for takeout As has been the case since it opened, Revolucion specializes in cocktails and beer. It features a strong selection of Mexican beers and tequilas few places can match plus the standards you expect. Cope said perhaps the most important addition to Revolucion is general manager Rachel Ferren, who came by way of Cafe 501 in Edmond and El Toro Chino in Norman. One of Ferren’s focuses is Revolucion’s new catering program. The restaurant is now available for office parties and all kinds of occasions off property. However, warmer temperatures are imminent, and Revolucion’s spacious front patio is ideal for private parties, too.

Here’s how Beau Jennings re-recorded band’s debut LP without playing a note A promotional photo of Cheyenne from 2005. Frontman Beau Jennings is located in the foreground right of center. [PHOTO PROVIDED]

Page 14

May 17 - May 30, 2018





Fifteen years ago, Beau Jennings was excited to explore anything through a song. The Oklahoma-born musician, now 38, was navigating his 20s and stitching together his first batch of tracks under the moniker Cheyenne. These days, there’s less banjo and more Springsteen-induced bravado, but Beau’s early songwriting blueprints seemingly have never been a source of embarrassment. That’s the thing about Cheyenne’s debut LP, “I Am Haunted, I Am Alive.” It’s a loud first impression full of mostly somber, soul-searching meditations. The alt-country leaning 2005 album marked Beau’s lo-fi emergence out of a bedroom laboratory and into laying the foundation for a sound that helped define the local music landscape. “I Am Haunted” also acted as an early reference for Blackwatch Studios engineers, another unmistakable force in Oklahoma-bred music. “When I think back on the album, I can see, definitely see, where Cheyenne was defined,” Jennings said. “A world was made and … it was a concept record even though I wasn’t trying to make one.” I was surprised to hear Beau not only planned to rerelease the record but also aimed to recruit former bandmates, buddies and contemporaries to rerecord the whole LP. So, why’s the original “I Am Haunted, I Am Alive” worth the fuss? A lot of artists probably would pay you to destroy their first record. For one, the title feels like a rallying cry. “I Am Haunted” succeeds as an auditory promise that Beau and Co. would foster into more disciplined songwriting efforts. Sort of like how his fascination with Will Rogers slowly grew into “The Verdigris,” a heartfelt documentary film and complementary record that arrived much later. Beau hatched the scheme to collect covers after meeting with Chris Stellman — who’s a doctor when he’s not putting out records on his recently revitalized Clerestory AV label. Stellman thought it’d be fun to work with the band again. It wasn’t a stretch. His boutique label had put out a couple Cheyenne EPs back in the day. That new, vinyl-only reissue landed last month, amid Cheyenne reunion rehearsals for what may have been the band’s final gig at the Norman Music Festival. What began as an idea for an “I Am Haunted” rerelease grew into something a lot bigger. More than two dozen artists got involved in covering the record and the project swelled to include 27 tracks from Cheyenne’s song collection. The digital companion piece is called “Cheyenne Songs” and is packaged with the vinyl. Everyone from Samantha Crain and Travis Linville to Student Film and BRONCHO had a connection to the Okie band. Weatherford’s Jared Deck didn’t hesitate joining this project. When he bought the band’s very first EP, he played the CD so often it died. “That CD won’t play anymore,” Deck said with a laugh. “The song ‘I’ll Be Gone’ is on that. I always loved that track. ... When the cover opportunity came around it was a no-brainer.” Another notable piece of the new collection invited Tulsa’s John Moreland to interpret Cheyenne’s rollicking “Big Weather” as a stripped-down guitar ballad. It’s different from the original track in the best way. I sat across from Beau as he picked apart a plate of Pepe Delgado’s green chili pork — he’s also a bona fide spicy stew expert — while he chewed on the song’s inspiration. “That’s a great example of me feeling like I had lost the plot of the song,” Jennings said. “I wasn’t sure exactly where it was going when I wrote it. Sonically, Cheyenne ended up making a nice recording of it, but I never found the emotional center.” Jennings said Moreland restyled the song — which actually comes from a Cheyenne follow-up called “The Whale” — and in doing so pinpointed a stirring core. The deconstructed rock track definitely retains its roots as a Tom Petty-esque banger, but Moreland’s weathered voice amplified the sentiment. “I think ‘Big Weather’ was ultimately about uncertainty or dread,” Jennings said. “Some verses are trying to be defiant in the face of something oncoming. ... ‘Big Weather’ existed as one thing for me, and I just appreciate how John flipped it on its

When I think back on the album, I can see, definitely see, where Cheyenne was defined,” Jennings said. “A world was made and … it was a concept record even though I wasn’t trying to make one.” BEAU JENNINGS

START, CONTINUED FROM PAGE 15 head and found something else in it.” CHEYENNE REVISITED Beau’s bandmate Chase Kerby has been a fan of “I Am Haunted” since he caught Cheyenne performing live at The Conservatory a decade ago. From the minute the show started, Kerby knew he had a new favorite band. “That record is my all-time, favorite release of any local band,” Kerby said in an interview. “Every time I listen to it ... feels like the first time I’ve heard it. Beau’s style is so unique in his storytelling. He paints such a vivid mental picture that it feels like reading a book when you hear a song.” Kerby recruited Cheyenne regulars Michael Trepagnier and Dustin Ragland to help him kick off the new edition

of “I Am Haunted.” “This record is a testament to how close the Oklahoma music community is,” Kerby said. “It’s cool to be a part of something so tight-knit where everybody involved has a special memory or attachment to that record.” Early “I Am Haunted” inspiration started while Beau was working log home construction in Wyoming. Jennings overheard his boss asking a homeowner how her writing was coming along. Annie Proulx said it was going well, and she went back inside. An avid reader, Beau researched her work — you’d know her best for writing the short story “Brokeback Mountain” — and found “Close Range: Wyoming Stories.” When the job was done, Beau left for London to study abroad and brought the book along. He started writing songs in England. Almost everything on “I Am Haunted” started pouring out. In a way, he missed home.

“I was trying to process all these things that had been happening in my life,” Beau said. “It was like a combination of the landscape of the Southwest, the imagery and the influence of her writing. All that congealed into a collection of songs.” Tragedy, God, love and war; it’s all there. The universal themes and modern folk sounds might be why they lent themselves to be covered. But there was an initial hesitation to put together the “I Am Haunted” compilation. “Can we ask people to do this?” Beau wondered. “It feels a little presumptuous ... but the enthusiasm was great from the artists who said they’d do it. “I would get songs back, and it was thrilling to hear new takes. They sounded like new songs. I didn’t think of them as songs I’d written.” Everything felt amplified, Beau said. Songs he was proud of back in the day he became especially proud of. It also reminded him how far he’s come as a song-

writer. Overall, it was just a joyful experience. His former bandmate Ryan Lindsey tackled “Anymore” and turned the sleepy number into a glammy, garage rock ballad his band BRONCHO would slow down a concert with. “I just never would’ve done that,” Beau said. “Ryan played that song with us hundreds of times. He had played piano and sang harmonies. I love that he didn’t play it straight this time. He found his own version of it.” Beau’s attitude on the compilation was to tell everyone to go nuts because nobody’s gonna mess it up. “Some people were very cautious about it, and some sent me the craziest thing and didn’t even ask,” he said. Recordings ranged from studio efforts to bare-bones iPhone voice memos. One showed up entirely in French. You never know what you’re going to get from Cheyenne fans. BANDING TOGETHER Oklahoma City’s Sherree Chamberlain was a teenager when she first heard Cheyenne. She was aware of their records, but she didn’t have them memorized. She used the opportunity to cover the track “Houses” as a refresher. “Beau’s been so supportive of me and invites me to sing harmonies at his shows,” Chamberlain said. “He’s a great songwriter. I approached the cover as if I were to write a Beau song then what would it sound like?” She gave the song a listen while quickly scribbling down lyrics and tried playing her version of a first impression. It’s not a straight cover but almost like a documen-


tary of how a song lingers. Penny Pitchlynn, of LABRYS, took a different approach. She spent eight hours recording with Brine Webb at Lunar Manor, a literally underground recording studio in OKC. “I came in with the intention of speeding it up,” she shared in a text. “I’ve been in this slow groove place, so that’s where the initial boom chick beat kinda started. ... I listened to the song a few times to get the melody in my brain and just added some of my natural melodic inclinations to the progression Beau already had in place. The original version is super minimal, so I didn’t wanna muck it up too much.” Dustin Ragland — who also plays with Beau’s current full-band collective known as The Tigers — took a left -of-center approach covering “The Prose And Not The Poetry.” He decided to give the intimate, guitar-driven track an experimental edge. He synthesized vocal samples into keyboard sounds and created “a strong dynamic contrast between the verses, with their Civil War — era tale of loneliness, and the instrumental sections in-between.” Ragland’s drawn to the song’s melancholic chord progression and storytelling. “When you have a story that is ostensibly ‘out there’ in time frame — like the late 19th century — yet you can locate yourself in the story then it makes a unique authenticity possible in the music,” he said in an email. “Beau has become a friend, an artist and father I admire and learn from. I am biased on the legacy of Cheyenne.” Ragland says Beau represents a songwriter who can embody Oklahoma music but can’t easily be roped into one genre — rock, folk and country all come to mind. He

recently joined Beau onstage at what could have been the last Cheyenne concert ever at this year’s Norman Music Festival. THE PLOT REMAINS THE SAME There’s a great line in some old Cheyenne promotional material that reads: “Beau Jennings can’t decide which is more important — his day job as an architect or his real job as the singer and songwriter for his band Cheyenne. Or maybe he shouldn’t have to.” Architecture metaphors ensued, but I had to ask Beau if that schism still exists — or could it ever not? Beau used to think quitting one or the other would be inevitable. He just never did. “At this point in my life, I don’t want to be away from home,” he said. “Family goes into the records I make. It’s what I write about now.” In a 2005 interview with The Oklahoman, Beau had a similar train of thought about balancing music with a 9 to 5. “I’m realistic enough to know that one’s a little more certain than the other as far as making any kind of living,” he told Gene Triplett. “But so far, I’ve been able to balance the two and stay afloat. I’d also like to think they help each other out.” With another “I Am Haunted” in the books, Beau’s getting more help than he could’ve imagined.

orman Music Festival started 11 years ago with an unbridled enthusiasm for making a free music festival happen in downtown Norman. It’s grown in both size and ambition, featuring more than 300 bands on several stages throughout the college town’s Main Street drag. Last month, I saw that visionscratch at perfection. The ideal weather, savvy talent bookingand huge crowds blended together three days in a row during one of Oklahoma’s busiest weekends. Yet, NMF felt so laid back. I spent nearly 20 hours at the festival and it rarely appearedlike anyone was running the show. Sure, there were a few hiccups but nearly everything ran smoothly. Not bad for a festival with a lit-



MAY 17–30, 2018

Norman Music Festival hits high note in 2018 erallocomotiverunning through it. It’s hard to complain about much after seeing how Saturday afternoon was a near polar opposite to the rained-out conclusion to 2017’s festival. You couldn’t have purchased a more pristine weekend in April. Here’s a few more observations from the 11th rendition of NMF. 1. This NMF belonged to the ladies Thursday’s festival headliner Japanese Breakfast snagged a flower

from the crowd. She looked at the gift and asked the Opolis crowd if Norman could get any more beautiful. She could’ve been referencing the pitch-perfect weather, but it must have been aimed at her warm reception. The Philadelphia-based band, led by Michelle Zauner, was one of many female-centered acts that left me floored at NMF. Zauner’s original material gets more room to breathe in a live setting, but it was her gorgeous Cranberries cover of“Dreams” that will stick with me forever.

Tune-Yards, Kississippi, Snail Mail, Casii Stephan, The Lamps and Lincka also set the standard for great performances this year. “It’s been a long time since people have sung the words to our songs,” Kississippi singer Zoe Allaire Reynolds said. “We just got off the road opening for Dashboard Confessional, but tonight is just so special.” Agreed. 2. Surprises were everywhere I had big expectations for Republican Hair, and the pop-rock confections from the mind of Oklahoma’s own Luke Dick didn’t disappoint. His band— dressed in all white— drove all the way from Nashville to make their Saturday set before putting on a second surprise show at midnight. That’s the kind of awesome reward SEE NMF, 19

you get for making the trek to Norman. Horse Thief alsosqueezed in alast-minute set at Sooner Theatre with a guest appearance from sideman extraordinaire Kyle Reid. It’s inspiring to see that sorta enthusiasm from both bands and fans. Sometimes surprises lean the other direction. Parquet Courts headlined Friday night of NMF, but singer/guitarist Andrew Savage had pretty much lost his voice. Kudos to him for shredding through more than an hour of concert like nothing was holding him back. 3. Parking woes A word to the wise: Don’t plan on LOOKATOKC.COM

parking along Main Street after Friday evening on NMF weekend. I saw several cars getting towed to make way for the festival’s main stage and even a few performers’ cars made the trip to the tow yard. Parking signs lined the streets leading up to the weekend, but those warnings might’ve been hard to see if you were in a hurry to get to a gig or catch a concert. It’s a bummer, but if organizers want to start building the main stage at 5 a.m. Saturday, then those streets have to be empty. 4. Chill out As much fun as it is to catch a rowdy, outdoor act, I enjoy the relative serenity of a Sooner Theatre performance. I caught both Andy Adams and Jason Scott, along with comfy seating and air conditioning. The two Americanaleaning songwriters recruited excellent

backing bands to fill the room with clever sounds and songs. Relaxingbetween sets is something I forget to do. I’m always in a hurry to squeeze in at least one more show. I’m glad I took the time to grab a plate of gooey cheese fries and sit backstage to soak in Anna Burch on Friday night. “I’d like to thank NMF for inviting me to play when I had no other shows booked,” Burch told the crowd. The Detroit-based singer providedafitting soundtrack to the beautiful evening. I enjoyed the break. After all, a festival shouldn’t have to always feel like work. 5. The big finish It’s funny to think how on Thursday afternoon youcouldn’t tell that thousands of people were about to descend onto NMF. It looked like any other

spring day excluding the solo street performer betting out a Killers track to no one. He was more than ready. By Saturday night, tens of thousands of music enthusiasts dotted every inch of Main Street. City Councilman Stephen Tyler Holman surveyed the crowd as the festival came to a close. Before introducing Tune-Yards, he told the main stage crowd it might be one of the biggest festivals to date. I wouldn’t be surprised. If you care about creating an experience for music in Oklahoma— and didn’t have to be up at dawn Sunday for theOklahoma City Memorial Marathon— then there’s a good chance you were in Cleveland County. NMF continues to set the standard for big-scale concert experiences in Oklahoma. Organizers sure set a high bar for the encore. MAY 17–30, 2018

pichatpong Weerasethakul likens film to a crippled angel, an art form that is “limiting but divine.” The ongoing efforts of the esteemed Thai filmmaker, who won the top prize at France’s 2010 Cannes Film Festival, to push through the limitations of the medium appear to literally burst at the feet of visitors to the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, where his exhibition “The Serenity of Madness” is making its last North American stop. His innovative video installation “Fireworks (Archives),”

featuring a group of actors setting off firecrackers on the night-shrouded grounds of a Buddhist monastery, is projected through panels of glass, giving the impression that the sparkles of light are leaping out of the frame and onto the museum floor. “I tried it with another piece in Sharjah (in United Arab Emirates). We showed the work in a historic library. I liked the architecture and wanted it to be part of the experience,” Apichatpong said of using glass panels to create the immersive effect. “I cherish the moment when we are mindful of our waking moments. When you see a film SEE MADNESS, 21

or television, you forget the frames, you follow the story and forget yourself,” he added in a recent email interview with The Oklahoman. “When you see (that) the image spills out of frame, I hope the viewers will be aware of the space and the act of watching this light, the illusion. Your body and your awareness of image and sound become equally important. “Fireworks (Archives)” is one of about a dozen experimental short films and video installations featured in “The Serenity of Madness,” the Oklahoma City Museum of Art’s first exhibition to focus primarily on video art. “It was an incredibly challenging exhibition … from the standpoint of the technology,” said Michael J. Anderson, the museum’s director of curatorial affairs. “The quality control and technological requirements of this were unlike anything we’d done before. … And we’ve gotten wonderful feedback.” International artist OKC is just the fourth city in the United States to host a solo exhibit of Apichatpong’s work and the second to show “The Serenity of Madness,” Anderson said. “The three other cities were New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, so it’s pretty heady company,” he said. “What’s really interesting and I think important about him is he’s somebody that moves between the gallery (world) and theatrical releases probably better and more successfully than any other artist today.” The traveling exhibition, which is curated by Gridthiya LOOKATOKC.COM

Gaweewong and produced by Independent Curators International in New York, comes to OKC after stops in his native Thailand, Hong Kong, the Philippines and Chicago, with Portugal scheduled as its last stop. Born in Bangkok, Apichatpong, 48, grew up in Khon Kaen, a rice-growing region of rural northeasternThailand. He said he doesn’t remember much about his first film, except that he slept through much of the Thai film but that it featured a helicopter flying over the sea and bank notes flying like birds in the sky. He studiedarchitectureat Khon Kaen University, but in 1994, he made his first film, an experimental silent short exploring light and time called “Bullet,” which is featured in the OKC exhibit. He earned his master’s degree in filmmaking from the School of theArt Institute of Chicagoand in 1999 formed a production company called Kick the Machine. The following year, he made his first feature-length film, “Mysterious Object at Noon.” Special events In 2010, Apichatpong’s

lyrical feature “Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives” became the first Thai film to win the Palme d’Or, the top award at the Cannes Film Festival. His latest feature, 2015’s “Cemetery of Splendor,” was a nominee for another prestigious Cannes award, “Un Certain Regard.” His feature films and his gallery works occupy the same universe and often are closely connected, Anderson said. “He often makes them in concert. There will be actors from the features in the videos, but they’re made with a very different type of exhibition in mind. … They’re related to his features, and there’s a narrative throughout the course of the exhibition. But the individual works themselves have shorter maybe kind of micronarratives or even they’re more poetic,” Anderson said. “Because of the popularity of our film program, we thought this was a very rare opportunity to show kind of the breadth of his work that most other museums can’t do.” In conjunction with “The Serenity of Madness,” the museum is planning “Strange Creatures— The Feature Films of Apichatpong Weer-

asethakul,” a retrospective series, through May31 in its Noble Theater. The exhibit will be on view through June 10. Among the most striking works is Apichatpong’s latest, 2016’s vast “Invisibility,” which incorporates a system of shutters on an automated loop synced with the video work and twin projectors situated on the gallery floor. “So, you hear the shutters, you become aware of the darkness, you see these little glimpses of the narrative … and everything that you see in the videos are shadows. So, the fact that they’re on the floor is important because you walk in front of the projectors— there’s no other way to do it; you can’t walk behind them— so you become a part of the work. You become another shadow on the wall,” Anderson said. “When I was here with my nieces, I told them, ‘It’s fine. Stand in front of it. Make shadow puppets.’ That’s really part of the work. The works are very responsive.” Apichatpong said “Invisibility” is an example of the way he hopes to continue to make films more like dreams. “We go to cinema because we want to experience this


dream-like phenomenon. But in dreams we can move and look around, we are more active. So, technology is pushing towards that direction. VR is still young and awkward. But I like the idea. I want to evoke this awareness of freedom in some of the works,” he said by email from Colombia, where he is working on his latest feature film. “For the past few years, I have been fascinated with sleeping and jotted down my dreams. ... I don’t watch that many films lately. This personal cinema at night is much more interesting.” Memories and dreams Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton talks about her dreams in his lovely 2013 short film “One Water,” on view at the OKC museum. Swinton revealed last month that she will star in Apichatpong’s upcoming film “Memoria,” his first filmed in Colombia, or anywhere outside his homeland. “I am still developing it. I don’t know if it can be considered sci-fi. It’s a medical symptom of this person … thatsynchronizes with the land’s memory,” Apichatpong told The Oklahoman by email. “I visited Colombia and loved its landscape. Then I read, made friends, and discovered many beautiful stories of others. I’d like to try not working on my materials of Thailand for once.” He said he hopes visitors to his Oklahoma City exhibit bring and make their own memories. “I hope they bring their memory, feelings to interact with these lights,” he said. “I hope they feel comfortable in the dark and enjoy the works on the primitive level, like watching a bonfire. Nointerpretationneeded.” MAY 17–30, 2018

he National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum will pay tribute to the original food truck with a variety of family activities and, of course, tasty food over Memorial Day weekend. “The chuck wagon was America’s first food truck and remains an iconic symbol of the American West,” said museum President and CEO Natalie Shirley in a statement. “The other familyfriendly activities connect people with the West of the past, but also very much the West of today. This weekend is one to be remembered for years to come!” Preparations are underway for the 28th annual Chuck Wagon Festival, set for May 26-27 inside and outside the museum. Half a dozen chuck wagons are expected to set up in the museum gardens and serve up hearty fare throughout the two-day event. “They cook nonstop. They’re up at the crack of dawn getting the fires ready so they can have food ready when folks are walking in the door at 10 o’clock. Believe, there are folks that are in line for stews and beans and potatoes at 10:05 with their tasting cup,” said GretchenJeane,the museum’s education director. “They’ll be serving stews, cobblers, biscuits, potatoes, beans

and did I say cobblers already? The cobblers are always popular. You can tell when the cobblers start being served, because that’s when the line shows up — and the line moves pretty quickly, too.” Long-standing tradition Along with the chuck wagon treats, the family-friendly festivities will include a petting zoo, artisan demonstrations, Western re-enactors, face painting, leather stamping, square dancing and more.

Youngsters can try their hands at a bow and arrow, courtesy of the Trosper Archery Club, and they can get their photograph taken astride a Longhorn named Rowdy. Craft activities like making a corn husk doll or action figure and decorating a bandanna have become family traditions for many visitors. “We do have families that come every year. ... We typically have the Ward Family Trick Ropers come out making ropes for everybody, and we have families that’ll come up and say, ‘I have a rope from every year that you’ve had it,” Jeane said.

“It’s kind of a nice mix of activities and art and food and music.” Plus, the museum galleries will be open so that festivalgoers can explore the art and artifacts on view. “It’s the largest outreach program that we have for the community. It provides us an opportunity for folks to get in touch with their Western culture (and) sample some great food, similar to what cowboys would have been eating on cattle trails — although our food is probably a little tastier than what they had. It’s an opportunity to connect folks to the past,” Jeane said. “We’re always looking at building the next generation of museum lovers and museumgoers.”

Rain or shine The Chuck Wagon Festival is the Oklahoma City attraction’s biggest family event of the year by far,and Senior Marketing Manager Tara Carr said the museum has been putting more emphasis lately on family programming. “This is our big, premier festival for kids and families, and we hope to build on that in the future with other opportunities,” Carr said. “This has been around so long, and people... love bringing their families here. We just want people to know that this is place for everybody. It’s not just a place that you come for your fourth-grade field trip and don’t come back; it changes every year

and there’s a lot going on. It’s just a fun way to spend the weekend with your family.” Admission is free for children 12 and younger. Families of Last Frontier Council Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts, many of whom volunteer to help out with the festival every year, also receive discount admission. “It happens rain or shine. You never know what’s going to happen Memorial Day weekend. But if it does rain, we will still be having Chuck Wagon Festival,” Carr said, adding most of the activities will move indoors in the event of wet weather. “I remember working some of those weekends with galoshes and raincoats — and the wagons are still cooking,” Jeane added with a laugh.
