NO PAY TO PLAY Years ago, a developer pledged money for an East Falls playground. So where’s the cash? By Theresa Everline

N

estled next to the Schuylkill about five miles northwest of Center City, East Falls has many nice amenities. But something the neighborhood doesn’t have is a playground. One is on the way — actually, it’s been in the works for a half-dozen years — and hopefully, when a playground finally gets constructed, it will be a joyous little place. But the road getting there has been bumpy. Back in 2006, the Inquirer reported on a community tussle over the initial choice by the playground committee of East Falls Community Council (EFCC) for the site of the slides and swings. About two years ago, a new location was determined: As committee member and East Falls Development Corp. executive director Gina Snyder puts it, a “flag was planted” with a decision to put the playground at Inn Yard Park, a slip of green between Ridge Avenue and Kelly Drive. But how to pay for it? Councilman Curtis Jones helped. “He put in as much capital funding as he could,” says Jones’ communications director, Michelle Wilson. That amounted to $100,000. The whole time, though, EFCC has been counting on up to $50,000 in matching funds pledged for the project by Westrum Development Co., which has been building a development of townhouses in the neighborhood called Hilltop at Falls Ridge. “We pledged money as part of the overall approval process,” explains CEO John Westrum.

As is often the case with proposed businesses or developments, the neighborhood association gets involved in a give-and-take with the business owner. The community can’t necessarily block a proposal, but its input gets strong consideration when the city makes zoning and permitting decisions. For the Hilltop project, the process included community requests dealing with such things as traffic control. When Westrum made alterations to the plan, “We supported their changes when they went back to the zoning board,” says Meg Greenfield, EFCC’s first vice president. “They’ve gotten nothing but our support.” As for the playground, “We did not ask for the money until we had a plan and site,” says Greenfield. “It’s come time for Westrum to pay up.” But that isn’t happening. “The world’s a completely different place now economically” than it was in 2006, says Westrum. The pledge was based on sales of the townhouses, which are still being built in phases. “We’re behind where we want to be,” Westrum admits. “It’s just taken longer than we had hoped.” Not surprisingly, the company’s marketing paints a different picture, with a January 2011 press release titled “Hilltop at Falls Ridge Is Selling Strong!” Greenfield says her Westrum contact has blamed the lender for the delay. “If the bank is discouraging them from funding this, the bank is discouraging [fulfilling] a contract,” she notes. The Development Corp.’s Snyder sees one way out for Westrum: “The hope is that he’ll finish the Hilltop.” Willing to float the idea of a lawsuit, Greenfield is more blunt: “It’s time to pay the piper.” (theresa.everline@citypaper.net)

“They’ve gotten nothing but our support.”

✚ NOT-STRAIGHT SHOOTING This has been a busy week for gay rights legislation in Pennsylvania: inheritance rights, gay marriage and protection from discrimination have all been addressed. The general public — yes, even in Pennsylvania — supports most gay rights, including a remarkable 50 percent who favor same-sex nuptials. But the Republicans who control the governor’s mansion and state legislature disagree. Indeed, as we noted a few months back in a cover story [“Right Makes Might,” Daniel Denvir, July 28, 2011], far-right state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe is now a major power in Harrisburg, anchoring the right wing of a fantastically conservative GOP caucus. As a reminder, here’s a description of Metcalfe from the story: “He opposed Philly’s program to market the city to gay tourists, saying that tax dollars should not be used to ‘promote immoral behaviors’; he tried to cut state funding to universities such as Temple because they offer domestic-partner benefits; he sued a gay New Hope couple for attempting (and failing) to get a marriage license; and he opposed Domestic Violence Awareness Month, calling it part of ‘the homosexual agenda’ to support a ‘sinful lifestyle’ because it recognized male victims of rape.” But as state Sen. Daylin Leach recently told the Daily News, the political shift is generational — and thus inevitable. “Every day a supporter of equality is born,” he said, “and an opponent of equality goes to heaven.” Here are the sorts of protections future legislation is likely to enact. Rep. Dan Frankel (D-Allegheny) has reintroduced legislation that would add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity or expression” to the state’s nondiscrimination law. Metcalfe objected,

telling the Inquirer that “Rep. Frankel’s obsession with putting sexual behavior into law is offensive to people.” Metcalfe, of

course, harbored no such obsessions when he introduced a constitutional amendment to bar gay marriage. He doesn’t even really think about gay dudes. Really, almost never. State Rep. Babette Josephs has introduced legislation that would include domestic partners along with married couples on the list of people exempt from paying state inheritance taxes. Josephs’ bill would be somewhat moot, however, if gay marriage were legalized. So Josephs also introduced legislation to legalize gay marriage. —Daniel Denvir

✚ SCENES FROM REDISTRICTING Things are not always what they seem in City Council. Last Thursday, the body met and, with little fanfare and — seemingly — little trouble, gave final approval to a new redistricting plan for the city. Behind the smooth-looking vote, though, things have been somewhat rocky. The week before, Council held a marathon, daylong session — most of it behind closed doors and in tight huddles on the Council floor, all during an official “recess” in activity — on two different redistricting proposals. One was proposed by a working group appointed by Council President Anna Verna; the other was offered up by Council members Frank DiCicco and Jim Kenney. The difference, ostensibly, was the placement of a single ward: the politically volatile 56th, which no councilperson seems to want in his or her district. The working group’s plan split that >>> continued on page 10

From our readers

FOLLOW THEIR LEAK Our story regarding the unrepaired leaks in a Section 8 apartment complex [“Attention Deficit,” Daniel Denvir, Sept. 22] received several citypaper.net comments. Remyy wrote: “I have worked with Section 8 tenants for a long time. What I’ve observed is a symbiotic relationship. The tenants get a place to stay and have something to complain about without attempting to ever better their conditions, and the owners receive the subsidized guaranteed money every month for providing substandard housing. I have no doubt the house has been leaking for years. But the tenants have done nothing about it, and the one guy is a selfproclaimed ‘handyman,’ for heck’s sake.” Dctophilly countered: “As a landlord, it’s my responsibility to make repairs so that tenants are provided a safe and livable environment. [The handyman] probably isn’t allowed to make the repairs. I mean, tenants have to get clearance to even paint their walls.” “Like I’m supposed to feel sorry for Section 8 people,” wrote Danny C. “Try getting a problem Section 8 tenant evicted.They have a million and one rights and the taxpaying homeowners who have to deal with them have slim to none.” Suzy Subways noted, “It’s become commonplace to blame poor people for the conditions they live in. … Right-wing think tanks have been pounding us with the idea that poor folks are lazy and deserve their suffering. Meanwhile, the same think tanks have persuaded government to hand over our tax dollars to private companies, like these landlords, that get away with humiliating their tenants.” DOUBLE SPACED The story about an art project based on the practice of saving parking spaces with things like chairs or recycling bins [“Save Situation,” Lee Stabert, Sept. 15] was dismissed by commenter UncleStosh:“This in no way is art. First of all, it doesn’t happen all over the city. There is a class association with the practice. It also happens only in neighborhoods that at least at some point were mostly populated by a single ethnic group, where the neighborhood really is almost a private enclave, at least to the people who live there. It’s their turf. Lastly, the threat is real, not implied. If you move the cone, sawhorse or cinder block, you will return to a damaged car. In no way does this facile attempt at exploring a very complex subject amount to art.”

City Paper: Is this a war-on-drugs success story? Eric Schneider: It was not the spread of crack

per se that drove up crime rates. Homicide rates increased in the 1980s because of the competitive nature of crack cocaine markets. Once markets became organized, there was less need to kill rivals, hence declining homicide rates beginning around 1991-92. Policing has very little to do with crime, in my opinion. CP: It’s a recession. Why aren’t there more crimes? ES: The lowest crime rates in the U.S. occurred dur-

ing the Great Depression. Shared misery does not drive crime up; inequality and the perception that some are illegitimately doing better than others might. So I might expect an increase in crime postrecession, Once some people start doing better, the ones left behind will likely get more antsy. CP: Some conservatives like to argue that impris-

oning more people per capita than any other nation keeps us safer. ES: It makes intuitive sense that people in prison can’t molest citizens, but much of the “three strikes”-type legislation was passed after violent crime had already started to decline. People are now getting out of prison and emerging into a stagnant economy, yet we have not seen a significant increase in crime. In other words, if all this were so simple, we wouldn’t be having a conversation about it! —Daniel Denvir

Sort of. ward between the 10th District, represented by Councilman Brian O’Neill (a Republican), and the 6th District, likely to be represented this January by Democratic candidate Bobby Henon. The Kenney/DiCicco plan gave the entire 56th to O’Neill. The difference, realistically, was more complicated. Pushing hard for the working group’s plan was Council Majority Leader Marian B. Tasco, who hopes to become Council president next year. Fomenting support for the alternative plan was Councilman Darrell Clarke, Tasco’s presumed rival. The machinations were many and complex (see our Naked City blog at citypaper.net for a longer account), but Tasco’s aim was to spare O’Neill half the 56th and, presumably, secure his vote for her presidency. Clarke’s aim was to upstage her — either by delivering for O’Neill himself or by keeping the 56th away from Henon, whose own campaign enjoyed the support of union boss John Dougherty and former Mayor John Street, both of whom backed several candidates who pledged not to vote for a “DROP-enrolled Council president” — i.e., Tasco. The simple redistricting vote

had become, in other words, a kind of royal rumble. At one point, while much of the room had emptied, Kenney turned to Clarke and nodded at the empty dais, from which the president presides. “Are you de facto leadership?” he asked, addressing the fact that, absent the president and the majority leader, Clarke was, technically, in charge. “Let’s just call a vote.” It was a joke — sort of. Clarke looked from him to the dais and back again: “You talking about something freaky?” he asked, chuckling. Such dramatics proved unnecessary. While both plans would pass the eventual vote, it was clear by just before last week’s second vote that Tasco’s favored bill was dead on arrival. “I think the Kenney/DiCicco plan will probably prevail,” Tasco told City Paper just before it did, in fact, prevail.“And I think people are happy with that. … Let’s not use the word happy.” —Isaiah Thompson

“I DON’T LIVE WITH REGRET, THOUGH, BECAUSE I’M HERE.” But when it comes to visibility, Ingram’s already several steps ahead of the game. As a member of the Ryan White Planning Council, she reviews local statistical data and helps allocate funds for the cause. She is chaplain of the Lutheran Youth Organization, where she teaches area youngsters about the importance of making responsible sexual decisions. And she’s frequently asked to share her story in different congregations throughout the region — an experience that she admits usually leaves her feeling “exhausted” and “vulnerable.” “When [the speaking engagements] are over, when I’m walking to my car … it’s just a lonely feeling,” she says. “I know I’ve done a good thing, but I always ask myself, ‘Why me?’ ‘How come I can’t get a break?’” So what’s her answer? “Because I made the wrong choices.” On some accounts, though, it seems like she has gotten a break. Thanks to medication, her HIV test results have come back undetected for the past nine years. She has an upstanding career and three healthy, well-adjusted children. But this kind of thinking, she says, is one of the biggest misconceptions in an age when new life-saving HIV meds make it seem like you can pop a pill and be OK. “It’s still a big deal,” she says, pointing out the draining regimen of medication she takes every day — currently a four-pill HIV cocktail and numerous others to offset serious side effects like diabetes II and high blood pressure. “I may seem fine now, but it’s a constant concern,” she says. “I don’t live with regret, though, because I’m here. I know that everything I’ve gone through is to get me here — to be helpful for somebody else.” (josh.middleton@citypaper.net)

³ IN 1990, Aspects of Love was Andrew Lloyd

Webber’s Broadway follow-up to Phantom of the Opera.I don’t need to tell you it fell short of that juggernaut, and Aspects is rarely revived. So it’s a treat to see it stylishly mounted at the Walnut, where it proves something of a guilty pleasure. Aspects is less grand romance than kinky bodiceripper. In a French regional theater, pretty actress Rose Vibert is appearing in The Master Builder. (She seems a little slutty for Ibsen, but never mind.) Dashing young Alex Dillingham sees Rose perform, falls madly in love with her, and they run off to his Uncle George’s villa in the Pyrenees. It’s 1947, but if you’re imagining postwar austerity, think again. Life is caviar, glamorous locations and lots of sex. Yet Rose likes old Uncle George at least as much as she likes Alex, who goes off to war in Malaya. (Act 1 curtain.) In Act 2, Rose is starring in A Month in the Country.(She’s also too slutty for Turgenev, but never mind.) She reunites with Alex backstage, and brings him home. Oh, George is there, too. (It’s 13 years later, so everybody’s older, but not really wiser, and certainly no less sexually overwrought. If I had more space, I’d tell you about the smoldering Italian mistress.) Now there’s also a beautiful 15-year-old daughter on the scene, and … well, let’s just say it’s all either very sophisticated, or very Woody/Soon-Yi creepy. Judge for yourselves. Of course, Aspects’ money shot isn’t its story, nor Don Black and Charles Hart’s lyrics (summary: Love is complicated). It’s all about the score. Webber plays his trump card at the beginning with “Love Changes Everything,” the kind of climactic, effulgent ballad he does best, and if the rest of the throughcomposed work doesn’t deliver on the same level, it’s always tuneful and lush. Think of Aspects as the musical equivalent of the Olive Garden’s neverending pasta bowl — more quantity than quality, but still yummy. Through Oct. 23, $10-$75, Walnut Street Theatre, 825 Walnut St., 215-574-3555, walnutstreettheatre.org. (d_fox@citypaper.net)

BUILT TO LAST Young Philly theater companies in need of a place to call home take matters into their own hands. By Mark Cofta

T

he economy stagnates, unemployment increases, and government, corporate and foundation arts funding shrinks, while our leaders focus on mutual destruction in the next election. Not a great time to open a new theater space, right? “The planets really aligned on this one,” Azuka Theatre artistic director Kevin Glaccum explains of the kitschily named OffBroad Street Consortium — a group of six small professional theater companies, including Azuka, 11th Hour Theatre Co., Brat Productions, EgoPo Classic Theater, Inis Nua Theatre Co. and Mauckingbird Theatre Co. — and its rise from a humble idea to an ideal home. Glaccum says Off-Broad Street was formed “basically to do marketing” for the six homeless but increasingly successful companies, which all hire union actors, raking in rave reviews and Barrymore Award nominations. Then last spring, A. Robert Jaeger of Partners for Sacred Places, which matches arts organizations with churches looking for partners, contacted the Theatre Alliance of Greater Philadelphia. Were any of the Alliance’s 140 member companies looking for space? Soon, the match was made: First Baptist Church at 17th and Sansom streets will convert a large, high-ceiling room into a 100-

seat theater, and all six companies will have office space in the building. In October, Azuka makes the first move, baptizing the as-yet-unnamed space with Jordan Harrison’s Act a Lady (Nov. 320), followed by local playwright Genne Murphy’s Hope Street and Other Lonely Places in March. “We’re first, so we go in and face all the kinks,” jokes Glaccum. “I’m so excited, I’m probably overlooking how horrific the move will be.” For Azuka and the Consortium’s other companies, First Baptist ends “the amount of time, energy and agita I spend looking for space,” Glaccum says. No more rushing back and forth from the office to the rented theater; no more audiences showing up at their office thinking the business address is the performance venue. “It will be like a big headquarters,” Glaccum gushes, “a base of operations for all of us.” First Baptist has been “unbelievably wonderful to deal with,” Glaccum adds. Like Partners for Sacred Places’ other Center City successes, namely First Unitarian Church and the Broad Street Ministry, they’ve realized that hosting arts events generates not only income, but renewed community participation. First Baptist, Glaccum adds, has already suggested creating a separate theater entrance on Sansom Street — tangible evidence of a long-term commitment. Norristown’s Theatre Horizon is likewise growing, earning nine Barrymore Award nominations for last year’s hit The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. The company, founded by

[ sanded down and repurposed ] ³ chillwave/sampledelic

Emanating wintry calm and sober, classically restrained elegance; using a palette that feels even more spare and restricted than it actually is — glacially patient, cavernously reverberant piano; spartan, poignant cello; judiciously sparing percussion; and achingly delicate, boyishly whispered vocals, often harmonized and layered to exquisite effect — Somerville, Mass.’ Gem Club have birthed a starkly simple but deeply affecting debut LP in Breakers (Hardly Art), one which bears an almost uncanny likeness to Sufjan Stevens at his softest and most heartbreakingly sincere. —K. Ross Hoffman

Minnesota-by-way-of-Tumblr duo Elite Gymnastics — rare Stateside inhabitants of that fertile breeding ground of Balearic dance beats and indie-pop sweetness (plus a healthy dollop of new-age kitsch) pioneered by St. Etienne and lately colonized by Swedes like Air France (both bands are seemingly referenced in the title of their “Minneapolis Belongs to You”) — get viscerally physical on Ruin (Acephale), which consolidates a pair of web-issued mirror-image EPs. One side’s glitzy, jungle-tinged breakbeats are sanded down and repurposed for side two’s lumberous, mood-enhancing slow jams. —K. Ross Hoffman

³ folk/pop/rock After winning and wooing with 2009’s Yeah So, lovely British duo Slow Club has returned with something darker and deeper in Paradise (Moshi Moshi). The peppy doom of the old stuff like “Because We’re Dead” has given way to “If We’re Still Alive” and other worried, uncute rock songs that charm as they unsettle and seem to contemplate regret in every verse. Turns out there are fears worse than death. —Patrick Rapa

flickpick

³ rock/pop “In Your Dreams,” the opening track on Dark Dark Dark’s sophomore LP, Wild Go, barges into the ear with an abrupt lunge of accordion and percussion, clearing a path for Nona Marie Invie’s winsome voice. The Minneapolis chamber-pop sextet is at its best in such disarming moments, exposing a raw, earnest quality in its melancholy ballads and Balkan carnival accents. Those tendencies can also topple over into preciosity, but overall its strange charms compensate for any maudlin misstep.

50/50

He hasn’t had time for regret.

WHAT’S THE BUZZ?: Joseph Gordon-Levitt displays emotional range in 50/50, while Seth Rogen’s slacker sidekick is nothing but static.

LIGHT HEARTED ³ IF YOU WERE a tween in the mid-’80s and you loved to sing into your hairbrush, you had your pick of pop idols. But if you wanted to sing and make coy faces while playing air guitar, your role models were seriously limited. Thank God for The Bangles,who gave you three options: girly-voiced Susanna Hoffs; slightly cynical Vicki Peterson; or tough but vulnerable bassist Michael Steele. (If you wanted to sing and hit the skins at the same time, you could look to drummer Debbi Peterson, but I don’t remember anyone fighting over her role at slumber parties.) The Bangles hit the TLA on Saturday to support Sweetheart of the Sun,their first album in eight years and their first since Steele retired. Sweetheart’s blend of shimmery psychedelica and fuzzy garage rock is unlikely to inspire today’s tweens, but it’s a swell addition to The Bangles’ discography, with plenty of pleasing harmonies and chiming guitars. While Hoffs still coos like a kid on “Under a Cloud,” she’s acquired an appealing rasp that adds some depth. “Circles in the Sky,” Vicki Peterson’s stab at romance, suggests she should stick to cynicism, while sister Debbi ably fills the kiss-off slot with “Ball N Chain.” The gaudy solo betrays the song’s age — it dates to the early ’90s — but if you’ve been meaning to dust off the old air guitar, here’s your excuse. If you last listened to Different Light in your slumber-party days, here’s a refresher:The Bangles’ second album is the one with the biggest hits. “Manic Monday,” “Walk Like an Egyptian” and, to a lesser extent, “If She Knew What She Wants” have done the most to cast the band as fun and flighty gals. But though those tunes — all written by outsiders and all sung by Hoffs or the ensemble — have lingered on the airwaves, it’s the spare “Following” that carries the most weight. Steele’s portrait of romantic obsession — which relies on her bruised voice, acoustic guitar, atmospheric synths and just a hint of the harmonies that buoy the rest of the record — is the one that separates those who like music from those who can’t live without it. (m_fine@citypaper.net) ✚ The Bangles play Sat., Oct. 1, at the TLA.

you know that 50/50 is a “cancer comedy” from the Apatow camp that basically consists of Seth Rogen reacting to his best friend’s potentially fatal condition with hilarious one-liners riddled with pop culture references. Except that, in the parlance of the impersonal, antiseptic hospital rooms and offices where Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Adam spends much of the film, that description is a false diagnosis. Will Reiser’s script, based on his own experience as a young cancer survivor, takes a more nuanced approach, perfectly willing to find comedy in a horrible situation but equally unafraid of venturing into downright sentimental territory. It lunges too far in each direction at times, finding easy humor in the distracted mien of Adam’s doctor or falling back on indie-rock-scored montages for weepy reflection. But Gordon-Levitt evens out the film’s uneasiest tonal shifts, conveying a range of warring emotions from rage to frustration to incomprehension. Adam is still working out what his life is, juggling unsteady relationships with mother, girlfriend, best friend, job, when he suddenly discovers that it might be coming to an abrupt end. He can’t even look back on a life of wasted opportunities because he hasn’t had time to form regrets yet. The disease doesn’t make Adam’s life messy, just messier. He’s virtually living with a girlfriend (Bryce Dallas Howard, cornering the market in insincere beauties) who’s obviously wrong for him, working for a Seattle public-radio station where his efforts are unappreciated, and spending the bulk of his time with his responsibility-immune best friend (Rogen, playing the slacker sidekick role he should have graduated from by now). Anna Kendrick enters his life as a novice shrink so green as to still be reciting textbook entries whole cloth and experimenting awkwardly with reassuring gestures, charming enough to give him another messy reason to live. —Shaun Brady

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being a theater company on the run is not the best way to produce art.â&#x20AC;? Erin Reilly and director Matt Decker, is outgrowing its rented space for performances, offices and a dynamic education program at Norristownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Montgomery County Cultural Center, where another small professional theater, Iron Age, also resides. They looked one block up DeKalb Street, now dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arts Hill,â&#x20AC;? found an empty shell waiting for a tenant, and have already raised $525,000 of the $750,000 needed to transform it into a 120-seat theater and the office, rehearsal, classroom, technical and storage space they need. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you want to get something done,â&#x20AC;? says Reilly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;you just have to do it. â&#x20AC;Ś Being a theater company on the run is not the best way to produce art. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve performed in seven different venues in our seven years; this will be a big leap forward.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopeful that this season â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Deckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acclaimed production of Kimberly Akimbo (through Oct. 2), a new Christmas show in December and How I Learned to Drive in April 2012 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will be Theatre Horizonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; last at the Center Theatre. An additional benefit, both Reilly and Glaccum point out, is that the spaces they once rented will host other up-andcoming companies. Collaborators more than competitors, all seven companies nurture young talent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a launching pad for a new generation of actors and designers,â&#x20AC;? says Reilly. Horizon and the Off-Broad Street Consortium join other young companies growing in their own spaces, like West Phillyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Curio Theatre Co. at Calvary Church; Flashpoint Theatre Co., which manages Second Stage at the Adrienne and produces a three-play season there; and B. Someday Productions, which runs Fishtownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Walking Fish Theatre. Against what seem like tough economic odds, small theaters in Philadelphia are booming. Meanwhile, job creation and growth stall in the for-profit sector. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is what artists do so brilliantly,â&#x20AC;? says Reilly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit on your resources. You have to take risks.â&#x20AC;? (m_cofta@citypaper.net)

feature | the naked city a&e

very year, the Toronto International Film Festival grows a little more front-loaded, cramming more star-studded titles and presumptive Oscar contenders into its opening weekend. But the films keep showing long after the buzz-hunters and gossipmongers have tweeted their last. As a festival juror, I was due at the awards banquet on the final day. But staying also allowed me to watch one of the world’s largest and most influential film festivals evolve over its full length, from feeding frenzy to a simple celebration of movies and the people who watch them. With my final tally at 50 movies — a personal best I’m not eager to repeat — programming currents seemed to run in every direction. Perhaps it’s a coincidence that I heard the word “vaginoplasty” twice in consecutive days, once in the Korean thriller Countdown, the other in the new film from a major director I can’t reveal without spoiling the plot, but the intersection of sex and transformation was a persistent object of study. In A Dangerous Method, Michael Fassbender’s Jung and Viggo Mortensen’s Freud turn their gazes on Keira Knightley’s Sabina Spielrein, honing their techniques on her and, in the process, helping a patient become a psychiatric pioneer. But apart from the way Knightley’s jaw threatens to unhinge when she’s first brought to Jung’s clinic, her face roiling until she’s on the verge of going Brundlefly, Method is more dull than dangerous, full of words but few ideas. Fassbender’s skills, as well as everything else, are on far better display in Steve McQueen’s visually commanding Shame, just announced for the Philadelphia Film

Festival in October. Michael Glawogger’s documentaries have the graphic strength of abstract art, but Whores’ Glory balances the broad strokes with humanizing detail. A triptych surveying the skin trade in Bangkok, Bangladesh and Reynosa, Mexico, the film functions as a mirror image of Glawogger’s Workingman’s Death, in which male manual laborers subject their bodies to a different kind of grind. Set in a Parisian brothel at the dawn of the 20th century, Bertrand A Dangerous Method Bonello’s House of Tolerance circles an ensemble of high-class whores, catering to a clientele that encompasses aristocrats and industrial magnates. Danger still lurks, as a violent incident makes cringingly clear, but there’s a strange sort of intimacy, as well, even if it’s merely transactional. Speaking of transactions, Jennifer Westfeldt and Adam Scott forge a doozy in Friends with Kids, pacting to conceive and raise a child while remaining sexually single. It’s a goofy premise, but Westfeldt, who also wrote and directed, turns it toward pressing and painful questions about midlife anxiety and baby fever. That goes double for The Oranges, in which the lives of neighboring suburban families are upended when dad Hugh Laurie starts an affair with his best friend’s daughter (Leighton Meester). Despite the whiff of American Beauty, the film’s assault on conformist malaise is refreshingly uncynical. Most of the old hands fumbled the ball: Francis Ford Coppola’s

[ arts & entertainment ]

Twixt was a bizarre if fitfully giddy doodle,

mixing personal tragedy and Edgar Allan Poe in the mind of a sozzled horror hack (Val Kilmer). The film is functionally unreleasable, although Coppola’s plan to tour with it, Kevin Smith-style, should bring in the crowds. William Friedkin’s Killer Joe, however, is one of his best, a deliriously unhinged and yet perfectly calculated provocation. Reteaming with Bug playwright Tracy Letts, the film limns a seedy white-trash family who hire dirty cop Matthew McConaughey to bump off dad’s ex-wife so they can cash in her life insurance. McConaughey oozes easygoing menace, and Thomas Haden Church is equal parts moron and monster as the father who pimps out his jailbait daughter (Juno Temple) as an advance on the hit man’s fee. The film’s gleefully depraved climax had the audience gasping, not all with pleasure, but I was grinning like a fool; it was my last night in town, and the festival had delivered the perfect going-away present.

Dream House A haiku: Who killed those people? Was it butterface James bond? All signs point to yes. (Not reviewed) (Pearl, UA Riverview)

Happy, Happy|B the first 10 minutes of this ironically titled Norwegian comedy features several hilariously offensive exchanges â&#x20AC;&#x201D; about subjects as touchy as adoption, slavery and AIDS. As Sigve (Henrik rafaelsen) and elisabeth (maibritt Saerens) get to know their new neighbors, eirik (Joachim rafaelsen) and Kaja (Agnes Kittelsen), considerable inappropriate behavior occurs. After an uncomfortable â&#x20AC;&#x153;couples game,â&#x20AC;? Kaja gives Sigve a blowjob â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which soon escalates into a full-blown extramarital affair. then eirik makes an inappropriate pass. especially horrific is the master/slave â&#x20AC;&#x153;gameâ&#x20AC;? played between one coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son and the otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adopted African child. In an effort to reduce their pain, the characters humiliate each other â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is what makes this shrewd film so darkly humorous. When elisabeth prompts Kaja to perform a solo of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amazing Graceâ&#x20AC;? in the local choir, is she being sincere or sinister? the fact that everyone is so clearly ashamed and unhappy is hardly revealing. but the excellent cast â&#x20AC;&#x201D; particularly the sublime Kittelsen â&#x20AC;&#x201D; makes viewers care about these screwed-up characters. As the quartet of desperate adults scramble to find happiness, a barbershop quartet punctuates the action with catchy songs. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice, perhaps inconsequential touch, in a nice and perhaps inconsequential film. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Gary M. Kramer (Ritz at the Bourse)

macHiNe GuN preacHer|D pitched somewhere between Hotel Rwanda and Rambo, Machine Gun Preacher tells the true story of Sam childers, a junkie biker ex-con turned contractor, preacher and defender of children in Sudan. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unlikely story, as childersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; actions find him maneuvering as many moral minefields as literal ones as he hurls himself into a civil war halfway across the world with the uncomplicated fervor of the born-again, forsaking criminal violence for righteous violence in the name of protecting defenseless children. Unfortunately, director marc Forster typically operates only at a single speed: overwrought. Scenes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so much cut together as butt up against one another. Sam stabbing a hitchhiker in a strobe-light frenzy is suddenly usurped by him vomiting and pleading for help; his baptism, construction of a new church, and decision to become a missionary in Africa follow with bludgeoning force. Gerard butler bulldozes his way through the role, showing the characterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intensity but never hinting at any deeper motives. the question of childersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tactics is raised only by the man himself, in actual footage that plays out over the end credits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If a madman or terrorist stole your child,â&#x20AC;? he poses to critics, â&#x20AC;&#x153;would it matter how I got them back?â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s somewhat chilling that he asks this question rhetorically; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worse that the film asks it not at all. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Shaun Brady (Ritz East) restless|C calling Gus Van Sant â&#x20AC;&#x153;unpredictableâ&#x20AC;? is only sometimes a compliment. Granted, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rare quality in any filmmaker that you truly have no idea what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come up with next, but in Van Santâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too often left wondering why he decided to come up with it.

the time is 689 A.D., and empress Wu (carina Lau), china’s first female ruler, is awaiting her coronation. While Detective Dee (Andy Lau) objected to a woman assuming power, he has since been released from prison to figure out why folks are spontaneously bursting into flames. Dee is a keen observer, following everyone’s motivations — even those of his plucky bleach-blond sidekick, officer pei

A TSUI HARK FILM

DriVe|AIn Danish director Nicolas Winding refn’s Drive, a film every bit as brusque and spare as its title, ryan Gosling plays a Hollywood stunt driver by day, wheelman for hire by night. Gosling wears the stoicism of the steve mcQueen or clint eastwood action hero like the expressionless masks he dons to mimic the film stars he doubles while driving, a man not only without a name but without an inner life. He stares out at the city while a hokey song about being a hero serenades him on the soundtrack, though refn isn’t interested in parody or even homage as much as dissection. —S.B.

the setup is straight out of slasher 101: A group of clean-cut teens head out into the woods to camp at the site of a long-forgotten massacre. en route, they have a run-in with a pair of creepy hillbillies, presaging more horrifying encounters to come … only when Dale (tyler Labine) approaches the group, laughing maniacally and wielding a scythe, it’s only because he’s kinda nervous around girls. eli craig’s horror-comedy, which from this point on switches protagonists to its title rednecks rather than the considerably more unpleasant city kids, kicks off winningly enough with a clever premise: rewrite the standard summer camp brutality as a farcical series of misunderstandings (albeit gorily fatal ones).

Maude: “oK, kid hangs out at funerals, but can we make the old broad a cute young blonde? she can still die, just make it a disease so people can cry at the end. And how about adding a ghost for the kid to talk to?” Jason Lew’s script may not be that cynical, but that doesn’t excuse its ample borrowings and emotional manipulations. Wes Anderson’s own debts to Harold and Maude are well-documented, but Lew and, unfathomably, Van sant simply rehash both, piling on quirks from the archaic names (Henry Hopper’s funeral-addicted enoch and mia Wasikowksa’s dying Annabel) to the cat stevens song on the soundtrack. And that’s without mentioning the dead WWII kamikaze pilot (ryo Kase) who serves as enoch’s confidante. Restless is shameless in both its blatant thefts and its maudlin sensibility, but thankfully that shouldn’t point the way to where Van sant will head next. —S.B. (Ritz Five)

are just a pair of not-so-bright buddies out for a fishing weekend at their rundown vacation home, and can’t be blamed for all these teens who somehow keep impaling themselves on tree branches and hurling themselves into wood chippers in the harmless country boys’ presence. the problem, like most of the slasher flicks it parodies, is that the film is after that point basically a series of variations on a theme, with only the one joke up its dismembered sleeve. craig too often defaults to his leads’ cuddly niceness rather than actual comedy, no matter how many times he drenches them in arterial spray. —S.B.

exploits of Gerry Boyle (Brendan Gleeson), an acid-dropping, hookerhiring, socially stunted police officer who could very well be the last clean cop on the Emerald Isle. What makes The Guard such a watchable black comedy, aside from its grinningly McQueen-like pace, is Gleeson’s serrated performance, at once childlike, cold and chummy. —Drew Lazor (Ritz Five)

KILLER ELITE|BThough its gaudy trailer might have you believe Gary McKendry simply persuaded Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro to knee each other in the ribs while “Rock You Like a Hurricane” blasts from a battery-powered boombox, Killer Elite is actually an intricate sociopolitical thriller. Set in the early ’80s, the movie follows the perpetually scowling Danny (Statham), the archetypal

best-in-the-biz “cleaner” haunted by his past sins and looking for a way out. The script is cocky and gratuitous, but McKendry deserves much credit for his spirited action staging and tireless, stylish adherence to the technological limitations of the period (you’ve never seen this many pay phone calls in a modern action movie). —D.L. (Pearl, Roxy, UA Riverview)

A PLEASANTLY WARPED DRAMATIC COMEDY. ”

Writer Sholem Aleichem (born Solomon Rabinovich) used Yiddish to create, convey and preserve a culture, chronicling Eastern European Jewry even as it was in “great upheaval.” Joseph Dorman’s documentary recalls that effort, and contextualizes it within Aleichem’s own tumultuous life. While most Jewish writers in the early 20th century were using Hebrew, Aleichem’s decision to write in Yiddish was a function of both class and culture: He meant to tell the stories of the common man. Using photographs and interviews, the film concludes that Aleichem’s work

was “exploring one question: how to be Jews in a modern world,” noting it’s a question that remains unanswered. —Cindy Fuchs (Ritz at the Bourse)

³ BACK TO EARTH We’re still feeling a little hung over from the high-energy buzz of the Philadelphia Collection and FBH Philly Fashion Week. While the real go-getters among us may already be champing at the bit to get their hands on this season’s newest iterations of scarves and sweaters, we’re not quite ready to bundle up. We’re slowing our roll and saying adios to summer with this wave of nature-centric handmade jewelry from the locals. Sherry Tinsman Trunk Show Sat., Oct. 1, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., free, James A. Michener Museum, 138 S. Pine St., Doylestown, 215-340-9800, michenermuseum.org.³ Like many artists, Sherry Tinsman lists nature as one of her biggest inspirations. The influence is clear with the metal flowers (pictured) she creates, but there are subtler echoes of the natural world hiding beneath the surface, too. The soft ripples in the chain of a necklace are like an ocean wave, the rough surface of a pendant reminiscent of tree bark. All this, plus the mesmerizing spiral theme that comes up in several pieces cast in metal, makes for a fine tug-of-war between dainty and rugged. Tinsman’s whimsical work gives away her free-bird spirit, too. “I seldom draw my ideas on paper. Instead, I draw with my torch,” she says. “In doing so, I give myself the freedom to take the silver beyond its limits and see what happens.” Zivile Pupinyte Sat.-Sun., Oct. 1-2, noon-6 p.m., free, Gravers Lane Gallery, 8405 Germantown Ave., 215-247-1603, philaopenstudios.com. ³ From subtle to undeniable, here’s a jewelry designer whose work is typically drenched in natural influences — from plants to wood to bits of shell. Yet her newest line, Screwed Forever, squashes those delicate ideas and opts instead for something harder. Get a peek at Pupinyte’s edgier designs during Philadelphia Open Studio Tours,and you’ll find sleek lines paired with bolts and screws presented as stunning accessories.

The word “culture” may conjure thoughts of colorful Indian saris, ancient foreign languages, African ritual dances or long-held traditions of far-off places. Yet culture is less a static portrait of a people and more a malleable, adaptable form of identity. In celebration of this idea, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology is hosting a film series on cultural adaptation. Running throughout the 2011-12 academic year, the series features a new film every month, each focusing on a different cultural story and followed by a short presentation by a related speaker. For October, Jane Kauer, an expert on food and culture in Penn’s anthropology department, will present an episode of writer/director Cheuk Kwan’s series on Chinese restaurants. Present in almost every country across the globe, the Chinese restaurant adapts Chinese culinary customs to local tastes and

through snarling garage-punk, Goth-damaged post-punk, shoegaze and more (not to mention the far-flung genre dabbling of the band’s side project activity). This summer’s Skying (XL) finds them again expanding their parameters (and their hitherto rather monochromatic palette) for an atmospheric set of gleaming, nuanced, grandly tuneful and loosely psychedelic synth-rock echoing the dreamily lush 1980s “new pop” of bands like Simple Minds and the glammy swagger of early Brit-pop.

WAH DO DEM ³ STELLAR FRIED CHICKEN is supposed to

come from a dinged-up cast-iron pan in the lardcovered kitchen of a kindly black grandmother in the American South, not out the back of an unremarkably decorated Pakistani restaurant in West Philly. But everyone who’s tried the Lahori Chargha from Wah-Gi-Wah swears it’s The Truth. I am one of these people. The small halal eatery, which Atif Khan, a native of the food-obsessed Pakistani city of Lahore, opened last year, trades in Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Indian specialties, many recognizable — chicken tikka, kebabs, curries, steaming-hot naan so delicate it should be the official bread of the antigravity industry. But it’s chef Abdul Saboor’s chicken that’s turned the most non-native heads. “American people — they love it,” says Khan. “I didn’t expect it.” Unlike traditional brined-and-battered fried chicken, Lahori Chargha is carefully rubbed and left to marinate for six to eight hours before hitting the fryer — think of it as South Asian jerk. Saboor starts with whole chickens that weigh about 3 pounds, carving dramatic scores in the breasts and butterflying out the legs to speed up both the marinating and the cooking. Then, like a thorough masseur, he works each bird over with a special paste that combines flavors such as cumin, chili powder, salt and crushed garlic, all mixed with a little oil and lemon juice to help it catch. Each chicken (just 12 bucks a pop!) is fried to order, and arrives on a white plate scattered with cilantro and red onion about 20 minutes after you say the word. Breast side up, the bird’s legs and wings come outstretched in an awkward sort of perpetual free-fall pose, like the dude who gets booted into that big pit in 300.The servers provide a fork and a serrated knife, but all you really need is your fingers — the scores, in addition to helping the marinade infiltrate all those hard-to-reach places, make for breezy meat-ripping. It’s probably the most spice-symphonic food I’ve eaten solely with my hands, a nearly citric start that leads into waves of cumin punch and friendly chili heat. It’s difficult to stop once you start. Wah-Gi-Wah honors extra-spicy requests, as well; if it gets too fiery for you, shovel down some rice or dunk your next bite in the minty, garlicky yogurt dip served on the side of nearly every dish. “Breaded fried chicken is everywhere,” says Khan, who, believe it not, owned a Crown franchise before opening Wah-Gi-Wah. “The difference here is I give the taste from my city.” (drew.lazor@citypaper.net) ✚ Wah-Gi-Wah, 4447 Chestnut St., 215-921-5597.

THAI FIGHTER: Sawatdee’s fried tilapia fillet, served in a tamarind chili sauce. NEAL SANTOS

[ review ]

MELLOW HELLO Sawatdee plays it too safe with its Thai’d and true cooking. By Adam Erace SAWATDEE | 1501 South St., 215-790-1299. Lunch Mon.-Fri., 11 a.m.-3 p.m.; dinner Sun.-Thu., 5-10 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 4-11 p.m. Appetizers, $3.95$8.95; entrées, $9.95-$15.95; desserts, $4-$5.50. BYOB.

O

n a fall Friday night as crisp and clear as spring water, a crowd gathered on the 1500 block of South Street. Not for Bob & Barbara’s, nor for a show at Tritone. Not even for a flash mob. Right on the corner, in digs that used to house Pico de More on: Gallo, curry hounds had claimed all 34 seats of Sawatdee, the new Thai venture that replaced Pico in July. Outside, hopefuls waited on standby, peering ruefully through the electric-green BYOB’s storefront windows like old ladies staking out hot slots. Sawatdee (“hello” in Thai) is the brainchild of Tou “Tony” Inchote, who first visited Philadelphia on his honeymoon in 1994; a year later, he came back for good. Trained at his family’s restaurant in Bangkok, the longtime chef has spent the past 16 years cooking at local restaurants (Nan, Susanna Foo, Twenty Manning, Friday Saturday Sunday, Dmitri’s). With Sawatdee, he’s finally added owner to his résumé. It’s taken only a few months for Sawatdee to gain traction in the

citypaper.net

neighborhood, judging by the crowds. And I have some good news for them: I will not be trying to steal their spot. I didn’t start out feeling this way. In fact, during one lunchtime visit, I was just like those peeping toms, on the outside looking in, eager to eat there. Having shown up at 10:50 a.m. for lunch, I found Sawatdee’s door locked, and so I rapped on the window to get the attention of a staff member seated at a table engrossed in his Mac. Huffy, the guy poked his head out the back and curtly informed me the restaurant would open at 11. He shut the door, locked it and went back to his computer. I didn’t mind waiting, but I did mind the dickish attitude. That’s not hospitality, and certainly not Thai hospitality, which prides itself on making strangers feel welcome. But the encounter didn’t sour me on Sawatdee. The frustratingly inconsistent food did. World-weary Philadelphia tongues MORE FOOD AND lament our city’s lack of good Thai food, DRINK COVERAGE which is bullshit. There’s legit Thai food AT C I T Y P A P E R . N E T / here if you know where to look; it just so M E A LT I C K E T. happens that most spots inspired by the Land of a Thousand Smiles spin from the same turntables, all playing an endless muddled megamix of familiar recipes safely watered down for a farang clientele. Sawatdee is one of these places, where you have to ask for chopsticks and plead for spice. On the other hand, Sawatdee is also fast, affordable and mostly decent. It’s just your friendly neighborhood Thai joint, and so what if the curries are made from store-bought pastes. Just like at your friendly neighborhood pizzeria and your friendly neighborhood Chinese place, convenience often trumps excellence. >>> continued on page 36

Sawatdeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value is more of an attraction than the flavors.

And Sawatdee is all about convenience. On that lunchtime visit, I was through three courses in half an hour. Inchoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tom kha was top-notch, a creamy, cockleswarming coconut soup laced with lemongrass, galangal and kaffir lime; it tasted like an old family recipe, something perfected over generations in a steamy Bangkok kitchen. But the fried tofu wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t crisp enough, and came with a sweet-and-sour dipping sauce that tasted like the last sip of Coke after most of the ice has melted. Evenly breaded and expertly pan-fried, a fillet of tilapia wore a sheath of crunchy, golden-brown crumbs, but the flow of tamarind chili sauce beneath it had all the fire and spunk of Chinese duck sauce. At $9.95 for an appetizer, soup or salad, and entrĂŠe, lunch is such a steal it should earn you fantasy points, and the savings carry over to dinner, where nothing costs more than $16. Inchote definitely gives his patrons their moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth, and this value is more of the attraction than the flavors, which spit and smolder but never shine. Panseared dumplings, for example, benefitted from a fresh, light filling of ground chicken and shrimp, but arrived mummified in thick, gummy skins. The beef satayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s curry powder/coconut milk marinade added genuine flavor (as did the massaman-style peanut sauce and cucumber vinegar dip), but the planks of steak chewed like rawhide. Some dishes satisfied, like the wussy but tasty red and green curries, while others were uncharacteristically bland. The lab gai was damp and sweet, with none of the tang and funkiness that normally lurk in the corners of this punchy ground-chicken stir-fry. And while I loved the tom kha, its no-coconut cousin, tom yum, had no personality. Could be because Sawatdeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version swaps out the soupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s typical chicken stock for water? Swell for vegetarians and horrible for everyone else. The biggest impression maker was the ba mee moo dang, sliced roasted pork with wispy egg noodles anointed with garlic oil. Boiled and shocked with a dancerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s timing, the noodles were perfectly cooked, and the tender pig crackled with the honey, soy and garlic it had absorbed over a two-day marinade. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d seek that out. Same with the desserts made by Inchoteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Wanchen Choosang. Unlike the majority of the savory menu, her sweets include some unexpected, delectable additions, like soft bananas poached in warm coconut milk and a not-too-sweet coconut custard steamed inside a cute Asian pumpkin. Fortunately, the other servers I encountered during my visits to Sawatdee would have made Inchote proud, and once the restaurant was officially open for lunch that day, even Timmy Timex managed a begrudging smile. But the toothiest grin wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make me rejoin the hopefuls outside. If I lived at 17th and Bainbridge or Broad and Lombard, maybe. As it happens, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already got my friendly neighborhood Thai joint, and like mechanics and hairdressers, you really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need more than one. (adam.erace@citypaper.net)
