Sound the Alarm Firefighters bear the brunt of the city’s budget cuts. By Aaron Kase

akase@philadelphiaweekly.com masochism. Nutter cracks the whip, and firefighters, decked out in black rubber, bend over and feel its lash. At various protests, press conferences and hearings throughout the summer, Gault’s demeanor has vacillated between angry, apoplectic and apocalyptic as he decries repeated cuts to the department by the man he calls “Mayor Cutter.” And last week, the firefighters were at it again. The latest protest isn’t even over money, per se, but the removal of paramedics from the firefighters’ union. “We’re the dog he keeps kicking,” Gault

protected until November at least, when another ruling will be made if they can’t reach an agreement with the city first. And in the long term, the problem with the paramedics may not have a huge practical effect: If the labor board’s decision is upheld, they can reorganize into a kind of auxiliary union with the firefighters, similar to the Sheriff’s Office employees’ relationship with the Fraternal Order of Police. But what’s troubling is the perception of the Nutter administration once more sticking its thumb in the firefighters’ col-

lective eye. So the city lost a case and had to shell out for some extra overtime. Did it really need to break up the union? Deputy Mayor for Public Safety Everett Gillison says yes. “The city does have an obligation to ensure there is a proper alignment of various bargaining units,” he says. “They placed the city in a position where a federal court ruled that [medics] are not firefighters, so we asked for a clarification from labor board.” He says the city was just protecting its interests and needed a concrete answer as to how the medics should be classified. Gault, of course, disagrees. “That’s a

October 20 - 26, 2010

says about Nutter. “I don’t know what I’ve done to this guy.” The roots of this particular dispute date back to 2003, when some medics sued the city to exclude themselves from rules that preclude firefighters from collecting overtime in certain cases. In 2008, the medics finally won their case, so the city appealed to the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board to have them removed from Local 22. Last month, the board ruled that paramedics are not firefighters and therefore can’t belong to the union. The union appealed, so the medics are

complete lie,” he says. “They did not have to do it. It’s nothing but vindictiveness and retaliation.” His point is that while medics don’t actually squirt water on buildings, they coordinate with the firefighters on everything, helping victims at fire scenes, while in turn the firefighters run first response when all the ambulances are tied up on other jobs, which is frequently. Even if the Nutter administration is legally correct, this is shaping up to be a political disaster. Why keep messing with the firefighters? Especially if—as is the case here—it isn’t necessarily going to save any money. It looks bad to voters. City Council is against the move and it could even cost Nutter one of his few reliable allies, Councilman Jim Kenney, who has spoken out against the mayor’s actions. Last spring, Council passed an ordinance affirming that medics count as firefighters, and when Nutter vetoed the measure, they unanimously voted to override his decision. Now, after the labor board’s ruling, Council passed Kenney’s resolution last week urging the mayor to leave the medics’ status untouched while they hire a lawyer to help with the appeals process. And maybe that’s the real lesson here. The city paid out more than $7 million to settle the original paramedic overtime suit, $725,000 of it for attorney and court fees. And according to Gault, a big chunk of the rest of it also ended up in lawyers’ pockets. Now what’s our solution to a dispute over the medics’ status? Pay more lawyers. Philadelphia’s a mess and people might be dying because of it, but no matter what happens, rest assured that while we bicker and squabble with each other, the lawyers will still get paid. n

After a year and a half of waiting, the Fire Department got a bit of good news last week: They were finally awarded a new contract with the city and it looked like the arbitrator had given them a favorable deal, with 3 percent annual raises over the next three years and no furlough days. Mayor Nutter, of course, promptly appealed the deal, calling it too expensive. “We simply can’t afford this,” he wrote in a news release. Many of the Nutter administration’s decisions make sense individually—the city does need to find savings somewhere. But taken as a whole, it appears the Fire Department is bearing the brunt of the consequences of the city’s inability to bring its finances under control. And when the Fire Department gets bled out, city residents are the ones who suffer in the form of potentially deadly delays to emergency response. “We’re like the personal ATM machine for the city,” laments Firefighters Union Local 22 President Bill Gault. “It’s all fun and games until someone dies.” In the past two years, the Fire Department has seen millions of dollars in budget cuts, seven permanent station closures and “rolling brownouts,” the temporary closure of others. There hasn’t been a new class of recruits for more than two years. And firefighters will be big losers if the city’s special retirement benefit program—DROP—is eliminated. Firefighters must be serious gluttons for punishment. Not because they run into burning buildings, but because of the heaps of abuse the city piles on, consistently and relentlessly, while they have no choice but to grin and bear it. The relationship between the city and the Fire Department has devolved into sado-

Amazing.

Feedback Well at least if he is making money off the haunted house, then he has some incentive to not raze the buildings and build a mini mall. I would love more than anything if a non-profit organization would take over the place and convert it to a stabilized ruin. They should use Eastern State Penitentiary as a model and open areas to the public as funds are gradually raised to make the buildings safe. ESP is run by a loving and dedicated staff. With all of the intrigue surrounding Pennhurst, I am sure it would not be difficult to find similar people to volunteer their time to preserve history.

Regarding Michael Alan Goldberg’s cover story about Pennhurst Asylum: Your article about Pennhurst was right on time for a real life Halloween story. Two of my cousins, Gabriel and Paul were institutionalized in Pennhurst because of severe mental retardation and one of them died there at age 12. I only learned this from my family when the story of Pennhurst’s transformation into a carnival came into the press. I cannot fathom how Randy Bates and Chakejian can make light of abuse, degradation, rape and death without conscious and deliberate ignorance toward the thousands of impoverished people who lived in that hell. The one thing that your article left out was that the people who lived at Pennhurst were very poor or abandoned. When parents did not have money to care for kids with special needs they were signed over as wards of the state. Parents did this thinking that their children would be better off and able to get care they could not get at home. The state now owes those who lived there justice for the wrongs committed there and could easily stop the injustice now. I hope there is a huge backlash for the new owners of this place. Making your money from the suffering of others is beyond bad karma. DIANE FLEMING-MYERS

Let’s build an amusement park at Krakow, charge admission and advertise ‘if you want to be a starving scary Jew’, come and pay your $25 to be thrilled. Unlike many concentration camp survivors, Pennhurst survivors are still alive and able to relive their story. My one friend, who is now 84 years old, left Pennhurst in 1974 and will not discuss his experiences there. It is far too painful and unspeakable. It is 2010, and apparently it is still acceptable to laugh at and further stigmatize the disabled as scary and dangerous. Think. Feel. Respect. Haven’t we allowed far too much exploitation to occur?

I like the idea and look forward to going to Pennhurst. But then again I am an urban explorer/ghost hunter and live for this kind of stuff.

No More Domestic Silence We’ve got a long way to go, baby. By Tara Murtha tmurtha@philadelphiaweekly.com

What struck me most while reading Leonard Shlain’s The Alphabet Versus the Goddess—a great read, by the way—is a section where he states that about 4,360 years ago, when the world’s first lawyer had a chance to whittle a stick down to a sharp point and etch history’s first written law onto a cave somewhere in Mesopotamia, he set about legally securing a big advantage in the bloody battle of the

carried less jail time than rape of a nonspouse. Here’s something to think about for Domestic Violence Awareness Month: We are the first generation in the history of the entire world to be raised with a consciousness of domestic violence and laws that come close to egalitarian protection from abuse. Enforcement, of course, is another story.

The term domestic violence didn’t even

We could use more awareness. Some-

how, the message isn’t getting through. Talking about it and writing about it and sharing experiences with one another helps. Deeply entrenched cultural biases built up from thousands of years of oppressive laws aren’t going to disappear overnight, or in one generation. So run a 5K, or buy a colored ribbon magnet, wear a purple shirt on a given day, donate your Facebook status. But what we need more than awareness is money. The parents and kids who are victims of domestic violence can’t be saved by one building with 100 beds. After all the laws that protected abusers for literally thousands of years, the U.S. government and the city of Philadelphia owe it to victims of “intimate partner” violence to support their escape from a situation they have been complicit in endorsing. Consider it reparations. n

being told by our mothers that no one has the right to hit you, married or not, living together or not. And that if they do, they will likely do it again, and it will likely be worse the next time. If we didn’t learn that at home, there’s a good chance we learned it at school. I have friends who told their moms, pamphlet in hand, that she didn’t have to put up with dad’s abuse anymore. Yet, girls 18 to 24 are now experiencing the highest percentage of physical abuse in relationships. Women in college—presumably so they could be independent— are more likely to get raped than women in the general population. Now, one in three teens, who should be enjoying the progress their parents made, are in abusive relationships and their “awareness” is alarming. Last year, after the infamous incident where Chris

by-product of awareness. We’re not surprised by domestic violence. But bizarrely, we’re still shocked when it leads to murder. At his arraignment hearing last month, Stephen Benford, a local ex-con known as “Punk Rock Sean” who hung out at Mako’s on South Street, confessed to killing his girlfriend, 22-year-old Gina Schickling, by stabbing her 60 times in their Kensington apartment this past June. Schickling was last seen alive at the Fire at Fourth Street and Girard Avenue, just a half-block from where 20-yearold Sabina Rose O’Donnell was murdered weeks earlier. Yet the Shickling case barely made a ripple in the media, while the O’Donnell murder dominated headlines. The Shickling case is an outrage because Benford is an ex-con who, if he hadn’t been sprung early on parole for trying to run over a cop in 2005, would have been sitting in jail the night he murdered Schickling. On top of that, he was somehow able to do drugs—and openly brag about it on Twitter—and drink at bars while on parole, but that’s another story, and one I hope sees the light of day. I had the opportunity to briefly talk off the record with a person who knew both Benford and Schickling. According to rumors, Schickling showed up to a party with a black eye a few days before her murder and openly blamed the bruise on Benford. We knew he had hit her, said the friend, but how we were supposed to know he was going to kill her?

exist until the 1970s. Naming the issue illuminated its prevalence and, even more radical, defined it as a problem worth attempting to fix. There was a time when Philadelphia was progressive on the issue. Local organization Women Against Abuse (WAA) was the first legal center in the country to address domestic violence within the justice system. Today, Philadelphia lags far behind comparable cities in providing services for victims of DV. WAA runs the only

sexes. And so it was written: “If a woman speaks out against her man, her mouth shall be crushed with a hot brick.” The writing has been on the wall, so to speak, ever since. In 1736, Sir Matthew Hale made matters even worse by explicitly endorsing marital rape in Historia Placitorum Corona (History of the Pleas of the Crown). The concept thrived in the U.S. as late as 1993, when North Carolina became the last state to declare spousal rape illegal. I recently learned that only 15 years ago in Pennsylvania, the rape of a spouse

Brown hit Rihanna in the face, a study conducted by the Boston Public Health Commission showed that almost half the Boston teens surveyed thought it was Rihanna’s fault.

domestic violence shelter in Philly. A single building with 100 beds is the only emergency shelter for domestic-violence victims in our city of 1.5 million, even though current statistics estimate that up to one in three women are battered in their lifetime. To make matters worse, WAA recently reported a dramatic increase in request for services. They attribute the spike to the bad economy: money struggles aggravate household tension and make it logistically more difficult to leave. In fiscal year 2010, WAA denied almost 6,000 requests for shelter, up from 2,552 in FY 2009. Where there’s more violence, there’s more murder. According to the Philadelphia Police Department, last year, 36 people were killed in Philadelphia by partners, up from 21 in 2008. Yet WAA continues to get hit with budget cuts. As I wrote about in a cover story last year, the city chiseled $300,000 from WAA’s budget in 2008. “Every budget cut reduces our lifesaving services, leaving more victims in violent homes,” says Jeannine L. Lisitski, Executive Director at WAA. “It’s important to remember that behind each statistic is a real person ... the government and private sector can either work with us to help these victims now, or pay for it later with high homicide rates and violent neighborhoods.” Just this week, WAA received official notice that 2011 will be worse, when the Department of Justice cuts another $150,000 in funding. After millennia of laws protecting men from repercussions of beating and raping their wives, we’re just one generation into equal legal protection from violence, and funding for domestic violence is already being slashed from all directions? Seems for every two steps forward, we slide one step back.

News & Opinion The Big Sharkey Show The unthinkable happened: I was wrong. By John Sharkey III feedback@philadelphiaweekly.com

P H I L A D E L P H I AW E E K LY October 20 - 26, 2010 • 8

In my last column I sort of went out on a limb and said the national media have started to come around to the Phils, giving respect and credit to their achievements. It would seem fitting, as our Men have bashed through weak wine-cooler teams like the Giants for the last four years on their way to a dynasty in the making. It would make sense that the Phillies’ brand would be firmly planted on the ass of every baseball-loving American given what they’ve brought to the arena in terms of power, aggression, arrogance and presence. It almost started to feel as if this nation that we live and breathe in, and its sports’ media, had finally accepted our Fightins’ fierce dominance. Well, let me be the first to say that I was wrong. Game 2 of the NLCS has just ended with a 6-1 result in the Phils’ favor, yet I still sit with a gripe. I should be in the streets, drinking irresponsibly, but I’m sitting here typing away like some disdainful little jerk-off troll in Umbro shorts, and I have nothing but hate in

my heart. As a Phillies fan this is nothing too uncommon, but I find it a tad distressing at such a joyous occasion. Let me elaborate for those unfamiliar. As you know, the national TV networks TBS and FOX take the reigns away from our boys Chris Wheeler and Tom McCarthy to fill our ears with tepid nonsense and verbal urine throughout the course of the post-season. The men these networks deemed fit to fill these positions for this and many sad nights are named Joe Buck and Tim McCarver. The latter is an ex-catcher, and the former is the son of broadcasting great Jack Buck, who used to call the Cardinals games back in the ’70s. They are both notorious for having very little to say while somehow never shutting the fuck up. Throughout this game of excellent Roy Oswalt pitching and offensive advantage-taking, these assholes dissected and belittled every single positive play the Phillies made. I don’t think I heard a single positive sentiment come out of either of these gentlemen’s mouths with

regard to our Phillies. In a game we were winning. Droll banter and left-handed disparaging garbage just tumbled out of their mouths every time they spoke. It was like they were creating a new language, but it all seemed so familiar. After six innings of those clowns, I turned to the radio and flipped on 97.5 ESPN as an alternative source, but shit actually got worse. Dan Shulman and Dave Campbell are calling the game and they seriously sound like they want to kill and piss on every single man in a Phillies uniform. If it wasn’t a friendly wind keeping a ball in the park for one of the Phils to make the catch it was one of them suggesting that the Giants were basically gift-wrapping the Phillies runs through sloppy mental errors in the field. The way they were able to somehow discount a Jimmy Rollins three-run double while not gagging is extremely impressive. Every single positive outcome was whittled down to a stump, and somehow they managed to calculate that of the six runs the Phillies scored, only one of them was worthy of their praises. It doesn’t matter what our Fightins do, we’re always gonna have know-nothings on network television champion the other team. It’s been like this for as long as any of us can remember. We deserve better, but our team isn’t gonna get it. As this post-season plods on, it’s becoming more and more apparent. Now in a sort of domino-effect of scathing feelings, this rage has bled toward our foes from the Bay. Right now I hate the Giants more than life itself. In the span of Games 1 and 2 of the NLCS, I’ve gone from a respect-the-enemy sportsmanship to a full-on bloodlust. Watching that bearded mutant Cody Ross glaze three home runs off our Roy’s helped a bit, as did Pat Burrell and his smug facial expressions after every tiny bit of offense they muster. Brian Wilson, with his dorky Mudvayne beard and his corny little tantrums, didn’t help either. Maybe it’s all the concessions allowed to them by the announcers, but I no longer want the Phillies to simply win against these

pricks, I want them to annihilate them mentally and physically. All bets are off and I don’t give a fuck who’s next in line. I want these micro-brew sipping drongos under the Phillies’ heal. Even the Giants’ fans are garnering my wrath. Last week in preparation of the NLCS, a San Fran native who somehow ended up in my city called into my favorite sports radio show, “The Tony Bruno Show.” He came with a slew of horseshit about how the Phillies fans were “drinking the Kool-Aid too much,” and how our “funny little names” for our players like Flyin’ Hawaiian and H2O were boorish and gauche. Now, I’m no expert in irony, but any fan of a team with a player nicknamed Kung-Fu Panda in which other fans wear cutesy little fuzzy panda helmets in support really should just keep his asshole of a mouth shut. This is Baseball, not Nick fucking Jr. I understand these feelings are completely unhealthy and counterproductive, but they still linger ever so steadfast. No matter what, the Phillies Phaithful will always get the raw end of the ram-rod. I realize now that what I was mistaking for respect was really fear. Fear of the Phillies and their rabid supporters, that they may one day overtake the land and impregnate your daughters with Yuengling-swilling, battery-chucking swine. Let them hate our baseball team because of us, they’re ours anyway. Think of us as you will, we’re not going anywhere and we’re certainly not gonna soften up. We’ll still fill the seats for our team in good times and bad and we’ll always put cities like Atlanta and their tomahawk-chopping zombies or San Fran and their dorky, orange pom-pomwaving white people to shame. There is no reason to deny your inner-self any longer, people. We live for our Phillies and we live to be hated. Go Phucking Phillies, bring us home another championship to stick up the world’s ass! n Want more gratuitous use of the f-word and references to male anatomy?

Murder

October 20 - 26, 2010

Filmmaker’s new TV series seeks to solve murders in the city he calls home.

On the front page of the Sept. 17 issue of Westside Weekly is a graphic photo of murder victim Rasul Gresham lying face down on the street, blood pooling from a head wound. “We hope this makes you sick,” editor Tyree Johnson wrote in the accompanying article. “We also hope this picture spurs you to do something about the violence.” Gresham, 32, was killed Sept. 16 while bicycling down the 5900 block of Pine Street. No arrests have been made in the case. As of Oct. 6, 115 of the 248 murders committed in Philadelphia this year were still under investigation. Seventy-seven percent of victims in these unresolved cases are black males—79 percent of them under the age of 30. And of the 1,436 homicides in the city between 2006 and 2009, 558 remain unsolved. The numbers tell an old, yet pervasively disturbing story of inner-city violence tearing families and communities apart. Equally disturbing is the idea that there are potentially hundreds of murderers still out there on the streets. The problem has persisted for decades, but West Philly native Grady Jones thinks he’s found a way to help. Sporting a closely cropped beard and hair just starting to grey, 45-year-old Jones says: “Nothing would please me more than to have some of these murders solved.” Jones, founder of the start-up film studio Life Media Studios, is launching a television series called “Unsolved Philadelphia,” scheduled to debut in November on the city's four public access cable channels. “It’s kind of like America’s Most Wanted,” he says of the show, which is designed to spread information about killings in which the perps got away. The hope is that viewers will phone in tips about the crimes—information they were unwilling or unable to tell police. “I guarantee there’s someone out there who knows something,” Jones says. “If you want to make a difference you need to be on television. You can reach so many more people.” Each episode of the show will feature interviews with people close to the victims, discussing what they know about how their loved ones met their deaths. While the friends and family members tell their stories, the show alternates between the interviews and background images of the streets, homes and alleys that served as the settings for the gruesome crimes, which are re-enacted to give viewers a visual clue of what happened. To help create the show, Jones enlisted a crew of longtime friends, including several he grew up with on the streets of West Philly and share his passion for the cause. Now in their 30s and 40s, Jones and his boys—Darryl Gresham, Earl Brooks, Ron Henry, David Daniels and Paul Smith—are ready to make their contribution to fighting crime in Philadelphia. “People complain, ‘the cops aren’t doing this, the Mayor’s Office isn’t doing that,’” Smith says. “So why don’t we

happened on that day,” he asks, prompting Maria to recount the story of her niece’s death. “They just left her there to die,” she says to the camera. Choked up, she stops to regain her composure, and then explains why she’s appearing on the show. “It’s not going to bring her back, we all know that, but at least it could give us some closure,” she finishes, wiping away tears. The crew exchanges hugs with Maria at the end of the shoot. “Man, my eyes were watering up,” Smith says. “That’s gonna be the toughest part, trying to stay cool when someone’s telling a sad story. Once the filming is finished, Gomez asks the crew, “Why are you guys doing this? Jones answers. “There’s a lot of crime out there that’s not getting solved,” he says. “And there’s a lot of details about the cases that people don’t know.” He’s referring to details like car model, for example, which could jar the memory of a potential witness. “Plus, it’s old news,” Jones continues. “Some of these cases happened 10 years ago and people have forgotten about them.” It’s his goal to bring them back continued on page 14

and tees. Jones and several guys in his crew are wearing white “Life Media” shirts. Playing the role of the show host, Smith is the exception, dressed in a crisp black suit. He says he’s ready to make an impact. “People are tired of feeling unsafe in this city,” he says. “It’s very important that we get a grip on this.” Jones jumps into producer mode, making sure everyone’s in the right place. “OK, Maria, you sit down and look at Paul—that’s where you got to be when the camera’s rolling,” he says, directing her to a set chair. A red backdrop is stretched out behind her. Smith sits directly across from her, off camera and in front of an umbrella light while Henry holds a boom mic. The result is the illusion of an insular space inside the unfinished room. Despite the open ceilings revealing beams, pipes, wires and ductwork all spreading across the expanse and the naked plywood floor, through the camera the room looks like a professional studio. The shoot begins. “We can’t have no walking around, no keys jingling or nothing,” Jones tells the room. “That mic will pick up anything.” Smith poses the questions. “Tell us what

One man described a white, Americanmade “box style” car from the late ’80s or early ’90s with a few dents and scratches, but that was it. “In these neighborhoods, nobody wants to speak out,” Gomez says. The police haven’t found any suspects yet, so Acevedo’s family members have been searching for clues themselves, every weekend going out to neighborhoods all over the city to hand out fliers, trying to find any information that could lead to an arrest. They’ve even raised a $15,000 reward and advertised through the Citizen’s Crime Commission and put up a billboard at Second and Erie, but no one has come forward with any tips. So when Jones offered to put them on “Unsolved Philadelphia,” the family jumped at the opportunity. “We’re looking for any exposure we can get,” Gomez says. Five months after meeting Jones and the Life Media crew, Adames and Gomez are in the studio ready to tell Acevedo’s story on film.

On a recent Saturday afternoon, the men gather inside Life Media’s Port Richmond studio to prepare for the first episode. The front room of the studio could easily double as a clubhouse. Located on the second floor of an old warehouse, the guys furnished the space with a conference table, pool table and a screening area, plus several recording studios down an unfinished hallway. Even when they aren’t working on a film project, they come to chill and watch football on the huge TV. The fellas joke around while setting up the shoot. “Turtle, stop breathing so heavy,” Jones says to Henry. “It’s getting picked up by the mic.” Henry shakes his head and grimaces. Why Turtle? “Cause he’s slow motion,” Jones says. Soon, though, the group gets down to the business of solving murders. They are interviewing for their first episode, featuring the story of Liliana Acevedo, who was killed by a hit-and-run driver in North Philly last May. Jones says the crew came across Acevedo’s story by accident last May. “We were driving around doing another shoot and I saw all these dolls on the sidewalk.” He stopped the car and jumped out to find a vigil for Acevedo, so he pulled out his camera to capture the scene for part of a separate documentary about violence. “We looked across the street and saw some guys filming,” says Acevedo’s cousin, Kenny Gomez. The family and the filmmakers approached each other and Jones explained his idea for the unsolved-murders show. “We were overwhelmed … that Jones was out there trying to help out with open cases,” Gomez says. “It gave us a little relief at that time.” Liliana Acevedo, 29, worked as an admissions clerk at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Her father, Wilfredo Acevedo, was a boxer who was killed in the ring when she was 5. She and her family still loved the sport, and gathered on May 1 at an aunt’s home to watch the Mayweather-Mosley fight. According to Gomez, Acevedo had just pulled up to the house at Third Street and Erie Avenue and must have gotten out of her car and opened the back door to get her bag when she was struck by a passing vehicle. “We heard a thump,” says Maria Adames, Acevedo‘s aunt-in-law. “Everybody ran outside to see the commotion.” The family saw people crowding around a body in the street, but they didn’t realize the victim was one of their own until one of Acevedo’s nephews recognized her bags strewn across the asphalt. “By the time the rescue squad got there it was too late,” Adames says. Down the street an outdoor party was taking place, and police and family members talked to everyone they could find, though they didn’t get much information.

“Nothing would please me more than to have some of these murders solved,” says Grady Jones. into the public eye and keep the spotlight shining on the violence by humanizing it. “I want to make people feel like it’s their sister or brother getting killed,” Jones says.

“Everything is gunplay nowadays,”

says Jones on a recent drive through the ’hood while pointing out his old West Philly haunts—bars, barbershops and corner stores, almost all under new names and ownership since his youth. He stops on a small side street near 60th and Vine streets to film a mural memorializing 17 people killed in the few surrounding blocks over the past 15 years. “This used to be a major drug market,” he says, pointing to the deserted alley, then turns the car south back to the street he grew up to show where more people have been killed over the years. “Right on this very block,” he says, gesturing toward the street corner near his old house. “Two murders here. One over there. Two more on the far corner. Go two blocks in either direction—forget about it,” he says, shaking his head. Jones was 10 years old when his family first moved from the “badlands” area of North Philadelphia to 59th and Rodman streets in 1975. His parents separated when he was 13, and he spent most of his youth being raised by his father, who worked as a prison guard. Jones counts himself fortunate to have had his father in his life to steer him on the right path. He reminisces about his old group of friends, most of whom had working fathers to help keep them on the straight and narrow. “Everyone with same mentality hung together,” he says. They would play basketball and go to DJ Jazzy Jeff parties, avoiding the bad kids who tried to drag them into trouble. “The guys I grew up with, we all were going to school, all of us graduated, most of us went to college, all wanted to do something,” Jones says. Gresham and Daniels were part of the group, while Henry, eight years younger and living on the same block, followed their example. “He was like a little

brother,” Jones says. Though they chose to avoid the temptations and dangers of street life themselves, the men were still all too familiar with that world and its propensity for sudden violence and death. “Growing up, we’ve known a lot of people who’ve either been killed or suffered through losing a loved one,” Henry says. “I could probably name 10, if not more, that I know personally,” Jones adds. “Many more that I know of, a friend of a friend.” One murder hit particularly close to home. When Jones was in his early 20s, his best friend, Tawny Arnold, was shot dead in the street after a dispute over a girl in a nightclub. “One night I’m saying see you tomorrow, next day his brother’s calling to say he was murdered,” Jones says. Tawny’s killer, unlike so many others, was caught and sent to jail. Jones stayed in West Philly for 25 years, watching the neighborhood fall apart around him and his friends and neighbors lose their lives. He admits there was a time when he got “really emotional” about the senseless killings, but over time he began to ask himself: “What can I do?” The problem still weighed on his mind in 1999 when he moved to Delaware, where he currently lives with his wife and two daughters. While Jones spends his days arranging leases and permits for cell phone network infrastructure, he still has family on Rodman Street and is in Philly at least three days a week visiting and working on various projects. In 2003, Jones and his buddies moonlighted as music promoters, most notably for the Philly-based boy band DDQ. Jones taught himself how to create movies by watching YouTube instructional videos, with the aim of creating music videos for the groups. In the process, he stumbled across a greater passion. “I realized at my fingertips I had resources to create a movie,” he says. So he did, founding the Life Media company and bringing in his usual crew to create “The Only Way Out.”

Monique Irvis shares the story of her son's murder. West Philly residents should recognize familiar landmarks in the movie—streets, playgrounds and William’s Barber Shop on Rodman. Jones took advantage of the kindness of friends and former neighbors to use their houses and shops for filming, often with very little notice. “It was like guerilla warfare,” he says. “We’d just show up and shut down streets.” The film took almost a year to shoot through 2007 and 2008, the cast and crew working weekends to accommodate their jobs. The plot centers around West Philly youth struggling to make the right decisions in life and touches on the usual themes of friendship, drugs, violence, basketball, girls and family. The film premiered in August and is for sale on Life Media’s website. “We want to show people what you can do with no money and no film school,” Jones says. Meanwhile, the unrelenting violence surrounding the shoot that year gave Jones and friends the idea for their next project. “Within a four- or five-block radius, nine or 10 people were killed,” Grady says of the time they spent filming “The Only Way Out.” “We decided to do a documentary about it.” For the film, called “Philadelphia: A City in Mourning,” Jones and his crew traveled to areas of the city with high murder rates asking kids and residents what was responsible for the mayhem. “It’s mind-boggling what you find out when you interview people,” Jones says. He has heard all kinds of details about crime and killings, a wealth of knowledge on the streets. But few people share that information with police, a testimony to just how engrained the no-snitch culture is in the ’hood.

Further testimony to the ongoing no-

snitch ethos was provided at a recent community meeting with police at Sayre High School, where frustrated residents of West Philly’s 18th District gathered to speak about it, among other problems. About 25 people sat in the front of the expansive auditorium, mostly older people—the same group that attends all the meetings, as

several of them pointed out. They seemed eager to sound off about neighborhood crime, silence within the community and problems with police credibility, but there was also an air of resignation: the same people saying the same things to the same cops, an endless cycle with no way out in sight. “When people say things, they get targeted,” declared a man in the audience. “Drug dealers come up and say, ‘I heard you went downtown.’ That’s why people don’t wanna say nothing.” Julia Chinn, a community activist and leader of the Concerned Block Captains of West and Southwest Philly, testified that neighbors are so afraid of retaliation that they call her with crime reports and ask her to call the police so their number doesn’t show up in the 911 system. “They’re all scared their names will get out there. Well, I’m not scared,” she said. District Captain Hugh Lynch told the crowd that his cops complain all the time that people won’t tell them anything. He added: “We need your help, too. Police can’t solve all these problems.” The Life Media crew empathizes with the cops’ frustration. Henry says the culture of not talking to cops is counterproductive to creating safe neighborhoods. “People wear ‘stop snitching’ T-shirts,” he says. “But people need to wear shirts that say ‘tell the truth.’” However, actions by the police themselves feed into the reticent mindset of the community. An arrest-filled summer and fall for the PPD—particularly the five officers caught stealing drugs—does little to reassure neighborhoods already spooked by the cops. A videotaped police beating of an unarmed man outside a Chinese restaurant in West Philly last month further strained relations. Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey is trying to regain public confidence, increasing hiring standards, expanding the Internal Affairs Division and holding meetings like the one at Sayre to give people a chance to sound off and receive a response. However, a good relationship between the continued on page 16

police and the community is not created overnight, and in the meantime the list of unsolved murders grows. The police urge people to speak out about the killings, emphasizing the ability to turn in tips anonymously over a phone number or through the police website for those scared of drawing attention to themselves. And an investigation is never officially closed until it’s solved, says PPD Spokeswoman Tanya Little. However, it’s impossible for the cops to be actively investigating every murder at all times, so they need to make decisions about when to pull resources away from a case. “The assigned investigator will make that determination along with the supervisor once all evidence has been exhausted,” Little says. “Once any type of evidence comes up again, it’ll be opened back up.” Jones says he’s trying to work with the police to facilitate communication if his show does manage to turn up something new—he submitted documentation about the show to the Public Affairs Department and is waiting to hear about having a contact assigned to work with him—but adds that in the meantime, “we’re using our own tip line for people to call in. We can’t wait on them,” he says.

Murder was in the air on Aug. 1, 2007, when 19-year-old Eric Woods and two friends were walking home from a basketball tournament at Kinsessing Playground in SouthWest Philly. They only made it

half a block down Divinity Street when an assailant dressed in black ran up, fired his gun at Eric and then took off down a narrow alley between some row houses and a dilapidated garage. According to the sparse information Eric’s mother was able to glean from neighbors, the shooter then crossed Chester Avenue and escaped through the playground, past the very ball courts Eric and his friends had just left. Eric graduated from Bartram High the year before he was shot and was working as an Allied Barton security guard. “He was a good kid,” says his mother, Monique Irvis. She says Eric loved playing basketball despite his struggles with asthma. His frequent illnesses caused him to be a target for bullying, she says. “It seemed like people were always picking on him.” Eric died at the hospital before his mother could see him one last time. Ever since, Irvis has been canvassing the streets with fliers offering a $5,000 reward, looking for any information about her son’s killer. She’s been in the Westside Weekly, the Metro, on Fox News and Channel 6’s Crimefighters program, but despite the publicity the killer still walks free. And Irvis says the two friends Eric was with the night of his murder—the only ones who would be able to make a positive ID—aren’t talking, whether scared of the cops, scared of the perp, or hiding something else they don’t want brought into light.

Three years after Eric Woods’ murder, Jones is on the scene. To create the “B” roll, he sets up in front of the row houses on Divinity with a video camera to recreate Eric’s passage from the playground to his death, shooting still and video footage of the courts, the street and the alleyway where the murderer escaped. For the interview, Jones sets up his camera in Irvis’ living room. She tries sitting in a few different spots to limit interference from the mirrors lining one wall of the glittery stucco interior. Eventually, they settle on a spot by the front window, in front of a school picture of Eric strategically placed on the sill. Jones uses a makeshift set of lamps from around the house to get the light just right. He’s working alone today; the rest of the crew is busy so he watches the camera, works the mic and conducts the interview all at once. “If somebody‘s watching the show, what would you want to tell them? What would be your plea?” he asks Irvis. “That somebody comes up and stands up and just says who actually killed my son,” she answers. “Nobody knows what a parent or family goes through when they lose somebody that tragically.” She speaks slowly, hands in her lap, pausing frequently to maintain her composure. “We have to learn to stand up and give justice. Don’t wait until it happens to you.” Irvis has worked in the past with

Mothers in Charge, an organization for women who have lost loved ones to violence, that’s helping Jones find people to appear on future episodes of the show. Dorothy Johnson-Speight founded the group in 2003 after her own son was murdered over a parking space. That case was solved after Speight saw a similar murder on the Channel 6 news spot “Crimefighters” and worked with the other family to find the killer. Now, she’s hoping Jones’ show can call more attention to other cases that have been neglected. “Something of this magnitude keeps it in front of folks,” she says. “Hopefully if someone’s seen it they will want to come forward with information about the murder.” It’s difficult enough for anyone to lose a child, but when the crime goes unsolved it only complicates the grief, Speight says. “The person who murdered their son or daughter could be shopping next to them in the supermarket or riding next to them in the bus,” she says. Or worse—plotting to kill again. Jones and friends are hoping "Unsolved Philadelphia" can help by providing a new way for Speight and her mothers to reach their audience and find clues to help in bringing criminals to justice. Starting small on public access, Jones dreams large about the impact the show can make in the future. All it takes is one big break. “The moment it’s gonna be big is when someone phones in a tip and a crime gets solved,” he says. “Then the sky’s the limit.” n

Got a scoop on a philly event?

Jennifer Haley’s darkly funny horror play Neighborhood 3:

Requisition of Doom serves as the season opener for Azuka Theatre. A cautionary tale about the dangers of online gaming and parental indifference, the play focuses on a violent online game that allows players to turn their own neighborhood into a zombie feeding zone. The neighborhood kids are obsessed with the game to the point where it becomes increasingly difficult for them (and the audience) to distinguish the difference between the real and virtual world. Under Kevin Glaccum’s direction, Azuka’s production will use projections, recordings and a very human avatar to further

It’s time for a little sociology lecture. There’ll be no quiz, you’ll get no grade, but you’ll surely walk away schooled. The speaker? Professor Paul Mooney—Mr. “Everybody Wants to Be a Brotha But Nobody Wants to Be a Brotha” himself. While today he’s probably best known from his spots on Chappelle’s Show (in “Mooney at the Movies” and as Negrodamus and A Black Dude in “Ask a Black Dude”), Mooney’s been putting in work for eons. Some of his most notable work was with comedic prophet Richard Pryor; he wrote material for some of the comic’s historic standup routines and was head writer of The Richard Pryor Show (an evolutionary predecessor of Chappelle’s Show) as well as for TV treasures Good Times and Sanford & Son. From Red Foxx to Pryor to Chappelle, Mooney’s a major contributor to golden comedic eras—and school is in. ryan sMith

Concrete, Steel, & Paint Normally, crime victims and their families don’t have to (or get to) confront the person who victimized them. Often, they wouldn’t be interested in doing so if they could. But in Mural Arts Program’s Healing Walls project, victims and criminals were asked not just to confront one another, but to work as a team to create art. The film “Concrete, Steel, & Paint” documents Healing Walls, which resulted in two murals, each completed in 2004, and it maps the journeys of both victim and inmate as they process their trauma and guilt. In a city like Philly, where crime has such a solid history and reality, it’s always refreshing to watch something creative and cathartic emerge from negative experiences. eMily CraWford 7pm. Free.

P H I L A D E L P H I AW E E K LY October 20 - 26, 2010

obody works the large-scale decadence better than Greg Dulli, whose Afghan Wigs distilled the neon-lit desolation, the Saturday night nihilism of Rust Belt America. That band’s Gentleman set the standard for dark, over-driven guitar rock in the mid1990s, its blues-infused riffery at once sleek and lacerating. Lately, Dulli has been pursuing the same undeniably epic rock aesthetic with fellow 1990s icon Mark Lanegan in the Gutter Twins. All that—plus the solo work, the Twilight Singers material and the occasional wise-ass cover—is fodder for the set list. There will also be some new songs from a Twilight Singers album coming in early 2011, one of which is a duet with Ani DiFranco. Jennifer Kelly

Andy Laster’s Sounds of Cairo It’s said that New York’s downtown improvisers don’t bother traveling north of 14th Street. But they’re as geographically adventurous as it gets, incorporating sounds from Eastern and Central Europe, the Middle East and just about everywhere. Andy Laster— when he’s not lending his alto and baritone saxophone talents to groups led by Satoko Fujii, Erik Friedlander, Bobby Previte and others—has made a good showing with his own projects, including the bands Hydra and Lessness. This week he’ll rummage through the history of Egyptian popular song, performing early 20th-century works by Jewish composers including Zaki Murad and Dawud Husni. Also on board will be Alex Waterman on cello, Curtis Hasselbring on trombone and Kermit Driscoll on bass. david r. adler 8pm. Free. The Rotunda, 4014 Walnut St. 215.573.3234 arsnovaworkshop.org

Peoplehood 2010 is modeled on discussions between Spiral Q artists and their neighbors about discrimination, with Spiral Q spinning stories from the community into oversized puppet-art performance. The parade of giant puppets, aiming to connect the community through creatively expressing their ideas on topical issues, begins at the Paul Robeson House and progresses east to Clark Park, where the pageant will be performed at 2 p.m. Arrive at noon to join in on the puppetry.

The Walkmen + Japandroids

sunday

For the past 10 years, the Walkmen have consistently created clever indie rock that concurrently captures celebration and defeat. Lisbon, their newest album, is no exception. From the high-energy, Link Wray-inspired anthem “Angela Surf City” to the prom-nightdance-vibes of “Torch Song,” the quintet joyfully navigates the dread and cobwebby memory dungeons of being in a relationship, sublimating such that tragedy becomes victory. It’s only appropriate that they’re sharing the bill tonight with Vancouver fun-boys Japandroids, whose Post-Nothing debut was a road album motivated by the endless quest for breakable hearts and youthful invincibility. “Let’s get to France so we can French kiss some French girls,” the duo sings. Is there any better reason? elliott sharP 9pm. $18.50. With Blood Feathers. Trocadero, 1003 Arch St. 215.922.6888. thetroc.com

24 Erin McKeown It’s been thousands of concerts, six albums and 10 years since Erin McKeown released major label debut Distillation, a landmark album that saw “Blackbirds” fly to the top of radio charts. Recorded with a friend on her own dime while still a college student, the album’s success catapulted Ms. McKeown into the limelight, where she has continued to command attention, whether going Grand, covering American standards, innovating new business models for indie musicians or campaigning for net neutrality. While songs like “Blackbirds,” “Queen of Quiet” and “La Petite Mort” are still concert favorites, quieter and darker songs like “How to Open My Heart in 4 Easy Steps” slipped off set lists crowded by an ever-expanding catalogue of new favorites. For this special anniversary concert only, Erin will play Distillation in its entirety followed by a second set of fresher faves. Old fans will rejoice; new fans are just people who haven’t seen her play yet. tara Murtha

Eisley The family that plays together stays together. And so Texas quintet Eisley—siblings Chauntelle, Stacy, Sherry, and Weston DuPree, plus their cousin Garron DuPree—keeps on truckin’ despite some recent career upheaval that’s included a departure from Warner Brothers. In the past, Eisley’s made some dramatic, romantic Narnia-rock that tasted like Sixpence None the Richer’s chocolate dropped inside some Coldplay/Radiohead peanut butter. If that sounds, well, mehhh to you, know that the DuPree sisters’ heavenly vocal harmonies—like kittens and those Coca-Cola polar bear commercials—can charm all but the most miserable bastard. Give in to the Eisley, and you may be rewarded. Tonight, they play a bunch of new stuff. Michael

In 2007’s The Rest Is Noise, New Yorker music critic Alex Ross tackled the often head-scratching development of 20th-century classical music from Mahler to atonality to György Ligeti to Steve Reich. After receiving tons of critical praise, a Pulitzer Prize nomination and a MacArthur Fellowship, Ross is back with Listen To This, the text he’ll be discussing tonight. His goal this time is to investigate the seemingly disparate narratives of classical and pop music in search of commonalities that might make sense of the transitions from Schubert to Björk and Mozart to Led Zeppelin. With chapters focusing on Kiki and Herb, Cecil Taylor, Sonic Youth, Frank Sinatra and Kurt Cobain, arrive expecting a wild, paradigm-shifting ride. ellioTT Sharp

OK, I never wanted to hear “Mandy” again, either. Still, if you’ve got to revive the god awful 1970s of Barry Manilow and Elton John and Rick Springfield and John Denver, why not do it Fat Wreck style, with doublespeed choruses, jump-cut to punk-pummeled drums and slathered with industrial grade irony? There will be goofy matching costumes too, and a kind-of all-star line-up with guys from Lagwagon, NOFX and Swingin’ Utters. If you really aren’t curious about a ridiculous oi band’s take on Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl”—and take it from us, you should be—fill out one of the song request forms. Just don’t write in “Freebird,” because they might actually do it. J.K.

 he back room of Fuzion Grill (460 N. SecT ond St.) was hardly the setting I imagined for a “Vegas quality performance.” But every Friday and Saturday the restaurant/ social club plays host to “The Men of the Cave,” Philly’s all-male strip revue, and that’s how they bill it. “Experience the evolution of man,” it says on their website, menofthecavephilly.com. There was little time for me to marvel at the sleaziness of the room before the emcee/DJ came out to get “Fantasy Friday” under way. “Are you ladies ready to see some penis?” he shouted a few times. Having already imbibed quite a few cocktails by that point, indeed I was. First up was Carlos, “The Latin Lover.” His nips were pierced, his eyebrows waxed. Due to uncontrollable giggling, I missed the first few minutes of his performance. By the time I was able to compose myself, a bride-to-be was in the “hotseat” getting jack hammered from behind. And then from the front. And then sideways. Thank God she was smart enough to wear pants. Next came a man dressed (but not for long) as a firefighter who had huge tribal tattoos covering his biceps. Though I think I got more action from my friend on the undesignated dance floor, Mr. Firefighter did get on top of me and gyrate a bit. Was I aroused? Definitely not. As if I could even think about his cock with those gross tribal tats in my face. I just sat back and pretended to be a helpless kitten stuck in tree.

Up next was Emilio, “The Sexy Sergeant,” who managed to rip off his cameo getup in one fell swoop. He was also the only guy to completely disrobe (but cheekily kept his junk hidden behind a small white towel). Though ultimately denying us full-frontal, Emilio did proceed to invade the personal space of several women without his skivvies. Unfortunately, the ridiculousness of being rubbed up against by buff dudes in a back room killed whatever lady-boner I could have had that evening. If I left feeling hot and bothered it was only because I had just spent an hour watching live soft-core porn completely hammered. But what brought me to see the Men of the Cave in the first place really wasn’t the desire to see well-groomed beefcakes bump-and-grind. More than anything, I was there hoping to observe a celebration of female sexuality. Although, the scenario I envisioned of me as a wallflower in a room full of rowdy women screaming and waving dollar bills quickly went out the window. In reality, there were only about 15 ladies in attendance, including two bachelorette parties. My friend and I quickly assumed the role of the two drunk chicks trying to crash the party. While everyone else retreated to the tables in the back, we immediately claimed one of the black velvet couches surrounding the stage. When the strippers left the stage to mingle with the audience, we took a dance break. Of course, some gals were more into it than others. One of Emilio’s targets immediately darted off the stage the moment he turned his back. Meanwhile, her friend relished the opportunity to take her place. I didn’t see a single gal stuff any cash down a dancer’s boxer briefs. Toward the end of the night, I actually began to feel really guilty about not having tipped any of the dancers, especially since we didn’t end up paying the $15 cover. So I decided to approach the emcee—who doubled briefly as a stripper for part of the night—and slip him a dollar. To avoid the awkward struggle of trying to get it in his jeans, I simply handed him the money and said the first thing that came to mind: “You were the best of the evening.” He thanked me then smacked my ass as I turned to walk away. Normally an unsolicited ass-smacking from a strange dude would have sent me into a drunken rage. But it seemed like an appropriate ending to a smutty Friday night. n

lucky when they confess to their wives that they’re nixing their next Le Bec Fin dinner to experience Rock ‘N Roll Fantasy Camp’s puky promise: “an unforgettable opportunity to move from spectator to a member of the band, sharing the stage, sharing the limelight with living legends.” The price tag for crossing the barrier is hefty—between $2,000 to $3,000 for categories ranging from “Rock Star” to “Superstar.” The performance on Sunday is to see and hear those who paid the cost to be like the Boss perform in bands they’ve formed over the three-day camp, and live out their rock ’n’ roll fantasies, their rock ’n’ roll dr-e-e-e-eams: an “all-star jam” featuring wife-beating Betts, Kip Winger, Hooters drummer Dave Uosikkinen and a few other utility players you’ve never heard of.

The tweezers-wielding flea-circusmeister never looks up from his work and barely speaks, and the camera stays on his face and hands as he works on his tiny props— a cannon, trapeze, carts—although there’s a quick-but-important cameo by a fly (the difference: Flies fly, fleas jump, hence their usefulness in circuses—it’s much easier to saddle up a wingless flea). Being so uncomfortably close to Vanderwold feels like a burden, like the viewer is spying on him and passing judgment. In the foreground, Vanderwold’s black pet rat runs on a flywheel in its cage, and the ringmaster himself is caged, his obsession locking him into this fantasy playground. Even though the video, co-directed by Lisa Marie Patzer, Ian Markiewicz and Doris (Chia-Ching) Lin with sound design by David Miranda Hardy, is blown up so large, searching for the tiny performers themselves in video seems futile; every time Vanderwold’s tweezers seem to drop a flea onto the trapeze, there’s nothing there but air, making you question your eyes, the character’s sanity and eventually your own. And without giving away the punch line, let’s just say that it turns out that Vanderwold doesn’t like insects. n

the story, and so developed the concept of “alienation:” intermittently applying sharp jolts of reality to wake up a lulled audience, often by breaking the fourth wall. Producing Brecht’s work, then, must be a careful balancing act of involvement and alienation—when done properly, it’s a uniquely jarring and rewarding experience. It’s at this balancing act that the Arden’s Threepenny doesn’t succeed. Director Terrence J. Nolen uses a full array of Brechtian alienation techniques; throughout the production, the dressing areas for the actors are visible on either side of the stage, and the eight-piece orchestra sits in plain view. The actors break the fourth wall, effectively halting the story in its tracks (notably during the play’s otherwise melodramatic conclusion), and obvious slogans like “It is better to give than receive” and an anachronistic “Yes we can” are projected on a screen behind the stage. Even Weill’s songs can be alienating, juxtaposing cheerful melodies with cynical, bitter lyrics and purposely ending many on a whimper rather than a bang. But Brecht knew that to jolt an audience, you first have to draw them in—and the Arden’s production seems to have skipped over that part. We only become involved on three brief occasions: the familiar opening number (made famous by Sinatra) “The Flick Knife Song (Moritat)” which is sweetly sung by Tony Lawton, a wonderfully catty scene between Mack’s two wives Polly and Lucy (Liz Filios) and the play’s final moments as Mack approaches the gallows, which in a parody of musicaltheater deus ex machina is abruptly halted by a last-second pardon. But three involving scenes in a threehour production aren’t even close to what’s needed to balance an otherwise deadly evening of theater. The Arden has long been one of the area’s most reliable companies, but here they fail to either entertain or provoke moral outrage. n

A macroscopic look at the microscopic world, Troupe de Fetishe, a video installation involving a tiny flea circus projected onto the 100-foot-long, 25-foot-high east wall of the Icebox at Crane Arts, is just the latest in a string of entomological art that’s been exhibited in Philly. There’s Jennifer Angus’ miniature Victorian sitting rooms that utilize insect carcasses as patterned wallpaper (currently up at the Philadelphia Art Alliance) and fruit-fly lab employee Talia Greene’s Wooly Willy-style portraits with scanned bunches of flies arranged around human faces in the shape of hairdos, beards and mustaches. There’s even been another flea circus, from Colombian artist Maria Fernandez Cordoza, which was at the Fabric Workshop and Museum in 1996 and again in 2008. Insects in art represent death and decay, and while many artists work that subject area, few use actual insects. When they do, it’s usually to trigger revulsion— a visceral response most art can’t and doesn’t necessarily want to provide. Troupe de Fetishe, though, made by a team of MFA students and teachers in Temple’s film department, is a nice take on the classic idea of a man trapped by obsession. Oskar Vanderwold, played by Mum Puppettheatre’s Robert Smythe, is a study in obsessive behavior, captured with extreme and almost claustrophobic closeups that don’t give much of an idea of the larger studio Vanderwold is in.

The Arden Theatre Company opens the season on its F. Otto Haas Stage with a disappointing production of Bertolt Brecht’s and Kurt Weill’s play with music The Threepenny Opera. Threepenny, a musical adaptation of John Gay’s 1728 play The Beggar’s Opera, was a sensation when it opened in Germany in 1928, and its status skyrocketed abroad when it was banned by the Nazis as degenerate. The Arden presents a version of Threepenny originally performed at London’s Donmar Warehouse in 1994, which (sort of) updates the story to the 20th century and has new translations of the lyrics and dialogue. Gay’s original is set in plague-stricken London on the eve of Queen Victoria’s coronation. While there's no mention of a plague in Threepenny’s London, things are bad. This is a stratified, capitalist society of haves and have-nots; though the characters are beggars and thieves, the presence of the unseen upper class is felt, particularly in how the upcoming coronation affects the underworld of London. The ruler of London’s thieves is master criminal and really terrible guy “Mack the Knife” Macheath (Terrence Archie, whose routine portrayal is neither charismatic nor ruthless enough to make a compelling gang leader). As the play opens, Mack has just married Polly Peachum (sweet-voiced Victoria Frings), a union that doesn’t sit well with her parents (Scott Greer and Mary Martello), who run a business for enterprising beggars. They live the middleclass lifestyle by renting out a selection of calculatedly shabby costumes of archetypes like “war veteran” and “vehicular accident victim” and offering instruction in how to arouse genuine pity through artifice. While Peachum’s means may not be ethical, one has to admire his flair for the theatrical— Greer’s Peachum is a larger-than-life character, hypocritcally fond of quoting the Bible while exploiting the misery of others. Sound fun yet? Brecht, one of the 20th century’s most influential dramatic theorists, believed that theater had a dual purpose, giving equal weight to entertainment and instruction. He felt that when audiences become too caught up in the passive act of absorbing a play, they tend to lose themselves and miss the message for

The boy is mine: Left to right: Liz Filios as Lucy, Victoria Frings as Polly and Terrence Archie as Macheath in the Arden's production of Threepenny Opera .

When self-taught guitar impresario Marnie Stern answers her phone, she sounds disoriented, her voice downright froggy. “You woke me up!” she protests, after a hazy greeting. Yeah, world’s smallest violin, Sleeping Beauty, it’s noon on a Tuesday. Fortunately, once Marnie fully regains consciousness, she switches from disoriented and mildly cranky to pleasant and affable, despite the fact that the vestiges of the previous night’s debauchery weigh heavily in her scratchy voice. According to Stern, the previous night consisted of the company of some friends and “a bunch of cosmopolitans.” Sounds like the appropriate cocktail choice for her tony Manhattan stomping grounds. “I’m very out of place in the Upper East Side,” Stern says of the rent-controlled apartment she took on from her mother, who recently moved to Florida. “I like it that way because I’m a weirdo, There are no young people here. It’s very isolated and very pretty.” Stern is a thin blond toting her teacup Morkie (cross between a Yorkie and a Maltese), so she can’t be too out of place in Blair Waldorf’s coveted ZIP code. But that matters little, as her neighbors probably never lay eyes on her. She’s a self-described shut-in, and admittedly isn’t much of a social animal. More often than not, she’d rather be holed up in her apartment reading, playing computer games, watching movies, knitting or playing one of her many guitars. Of course, touring is a welcome disruption to her comfortably solitary lifestyle. Unfortunately, the return home won’t be a pleasant one. “This tour will put me in so much debt that I’ll have to get a job as soon as I get back,” Stern laments. As many a musician can attest, critical acclaim doesn’t pay the bills. “I’m broke. I live off credit cards. I’ll never get a job because I’m a lazy bum,” she says. It’s a shame tearing up a fret board with almost surgical proficiency doesn’t come with a 401(k) and a dental plan. This might be a good time to dust off her unused NYU

journalism degree (not that it would pay any better). Speaking of guitar skills, when Stern’s reputation as “the girl who shreds” is brought up, she lets out a frustrated groan.“I don’t know how many times I can say that I’m not that great of a guitar player!” she says. This may sound like false modesty, but her tone suggests otherwise. She addresses her frustrations with being treated as a novelty on the track “Female Guitar Players Are the New Black,” off her third LP Marnie Stern. What doesn’t get enough credit is Stern’s voice, a glistening falsetto that’s heavy on the treble and takes on an almost otherworldly and pleasantly unsettling quality, especially when augmented by the bouncy, manic energy of her songs. Her wail countered with her music’s relentless tempo and thunderous drums (provided by Hella phenom Zach Hill) would almost be overpowering if it wasn’t blanketed under the perfect amount of fuzz. Still, there are worse things to be known for, especially given the fact that many female musicians struggle to be acknowledged for their skill instead of more trivial fare like their sex appeal or dating history. Perhaps Stern is starting to make some peace with the guitar impresario label. “It is flattering and nice, I don’t mind it,” she eventually concedes. What she’d rather people notice is the new direction she took on her self-titled album, namely the fact that she delves into personal themes for the first time in her lyrics. “It’s a really vulnerable record,” she says. “I hope it moves people.” It’s certainly hard not to be moved by opening track “For Ash,” an emotional salvo dealing with the suicide of an ex-boyfriend. The decision to delve into her own life was less deliberate and more a natural by product her own tumultuous circumstances. “It just happened. My life and my music are pretty much the same thing. I couldn’t stop it,” she says. “When you’re writing, you’re not thinking that anyone is going to hear it. After the fact ... I can get a little self-conscious.” That’s not to say that she has any regrets about putting her emotional demons out there. Quite the opposite, in fact, since she emphatically agrees with the suggestion that writing about her ex’s death served as a form of therapy. Although the album’s confessional themes are daring and refreshing, they don’t overshadow the fact that her guitar work is still as artful and electrifying as ever. Much to her considerable chagrin, she won’t be shaking off the perception that she’s the indie answer to Yngwie Malmsteen any time soon. She’s not really concerned with that at the moment. At the top of her priority list is going back to bed once she hangs up the phone. Everything else can wait. n Marnie Stern performs Mon., Oct. 25, 8pm. $12. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N.

In Benchtime Stories, Roni uses a simple wooden park bench as his voice. This lonely bench will witness the unraveling relationships between people from all walks of life, some dramatic, some humorous and some abstract. The creation of Benchtime Stories was supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

If you could go back in time, what would you change? Would you change anything or would you do it the same all over again? In Somewhere in Between, Roni challenges both the viewers and himself with these questions. It is a reflection on the past, a pause to recognize and remember forgotten dreams, while still looking towards the future. It is only in acknowledging your strengths and weaknesses that you can move on with renewed and clearer vision. This piece is inspired by the words of Karl Mullen as Roni breathes new life into his work and discovers how the past has shaped his present.

me. Once you can do shows here and people think you’re funny, you know you have something going on, because that could be a rough crowd. I remember doing shows in a sports bar when the Flyers were in the playoffs and they didn’t shut off the TVs. It was brutal. People would cheer and it’d just be Lindros scoring. How many people come to your gigs  because of Crank Yankers? When Crank Yankers was in its heyday, there were a lot of younger kids who watched Comedy Central and a lot of girls who loved my Special Ed character. They’d come thinking I was going to perform with the puppet and do a Special Ed show. Then my first joke was about banging my sister and they’re like, “Where’s the puppet?” I was like, “Close your eyes, I’ll do the voice.”

On Friday, the Central Jersey native headlines the TLA, returning to the area where he cut his comedic teeth. “When I started doing comedy, Philly and South Jersey are where I got most of my work,” Florentine says. “It was a bunch of shitty one-nighters in VFW halls, firehouses, and little beer-and-shot bars on the corner.” We raise a glass to how far he’s come.

Aside from telemarketers, what’s your  favorite comedic target? All the hip-hop guys. I totally destroy them. Hip-hop hasn’t evolved at all and nobody ever calls it out. Twenty years later, they’re still writing about, “I’m in the club, I got my bling, I got my bitches and my ho’s.” If hair metal did that for 20 straight years, they’d get crucified. And every video is scantilyclad chicks dancing around with big asses, with the rappers in a strip club throwing money up in the air. If Poison put out that video, the critics would start a campaign to get them thrown in jail. Speaking of, you co-host That Metal Show on VH1 Classic. Who’s been the biggest hard-rock dick you’ve interviewed? Honestly, no one has been a dick. The only one I ever had a problem with was Marilyn Manson.

ture. I said to my friend, “Here’s my camera, just snap it. We gotta get it quick because he’s in a bad mood.” So I go, “Marilyn, can I get a picture with you?” And he just looked at me with this dead stare. I heard later that he doesn’t like being called Marilyn, but Manson. I didn’t know that. You’re also emceeing the current Anthrax/ Megadeth/Slayer tour, doing comedy in  between sets. How do you win over those  crowds? It’s going to be rough. I may be having shit thrown at me. Slayer is a band who even other bands don’t want to open for because their crowds are so crazy. But it’s going to be 95 percent male, so you just do sexist, misogynist jokes and they’ll go nuts. You were talking sports with Cataldi on  WIP recently. What’s your take on the  Kolb-for-Vick switcheroo? I give Andy Reid credit. He had balls to make that decision. He looked at the tapes and said, this is the guy I need. He’s better than Kolb at this moment. [Players] have to be able to take it. This guy beat you out? Too bad. It’s like being a comic. I’ve done shows where at the end of the week, they put the emcee in my feature spot because he was doing better than me. What was I going to do, cry? That’s just the way it goes. You cut down Brett Favre as the NFL’s  “grandfather” on Twitter. Which rock god  is past his prime?

critic's pick

Gary Numan

 England’s eyeliner rocker Gary Numan returns to the states for his first American tour since 2006. The former commander of the Tubeway Army will honor 30 years since the release of 1979’s Pleasure Principle by playing the newwave masterpiece in its entirety. When rock critics dismissed Numan’s music as overly machine-made, the performer thumbed his nose at the industry and abandoned his guitar. The result was his synthesizer-heavy Pleasure Principle, the record that delivered Numan’s only hit single in the U.S., “Cars,” in 1980. The synth composition would influence a generation of American and British newbies, and wind up being sampled in a handful of hip-hop breakbeats decades later. Opener Rasputina is a cello-laden trio from New York City promoting their seventh album, Sister Kinderhook. Group leader Melora Creager toured as Nirvana’s cellist just before Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994. (Patrick Flanary) Thurs., Oct. 21, 8pm. $26. Trocadero, 1003 Arch St. 215.922.6888. thetroc.com

If you’re not familiar with Happy Rooster’s past, the menus and paraphernalia from legendary French restaurants dotting a wall of the humble, understated space might seem incongruous. But midway through a meal at this newly spectacular Center City fixture, it begins to make all the sense in the world: Southern- and Frenchinfluenced dining is being taken to heights here that more than justify the benchmarks set by the wall’s references to legends like Le Grand Vefour and Troisgros. A late-summer heirloom tomato salad, for example, should have been a been-there-done-that experience—the Philly equivalent of a Shanghai resident slurping down yet another perfect soup dumpling. But though we’ve been enjoying this year’s marvelous tomato harvest for months, this stood out. Steak-fry-thick wedges of tomato may have been given yet another star turn here, but, like in a Mamet movie, the bit players provided the depth— red onion shaved to translucence, French feta anchoring it all with an almost subterranean sharpness, dots of fresh oregano bringing it all out of the dish in a latesummer perfume. The kitchen here, under the relatively new direction of Chef Jason Goodenough, fares just as well with more difficult, labor-intensive preparations. Poached-then-grilled baby Spanish octopus was visually stunning, the tentacles vogueing as if posing for a movie poster. The flavors ran the gamut from the saline funk of olives and capers to the sweet concentration of a tomato compote to the orange and lemon zest in a citrus vinaigrette that framed it all without calling undue attention to itself. Pan-roasted jumbo scallops were poster children for culinary vision grounded in well-honed technique. A brown crown from the pan’s heat extended barely a millimeter or two below the surface of the otherwise snow-white scallops, yet still lent its caramelized sweetness to each bite. This was set against the earthy heat of the long-hotflecked “Mexican” cornbread rounds each scallop perched on; the backdrop a Lancaster County corn soup whose creamy texture evoked New England chowders and whose flavor combination was as classic as it comes—an evocative, thoughtful palate of American flavors. Oxtail was braised in a house-made veal stock and then plated with a bit of that elixir, and the addition of raisins, pine nuts and mirepoix added sweetness and depth. Posturepedic-soft gnocchi, dusted with parmesan, brought a delicacy to the composition that kept it all even-keeled and compulsively impossible to stop eating. Shrimp and grits featured the kind of mammoth headon prawns that too few restaurants employ, even those at twice the Rooster’s check average. These lobster-tail-textured beauties, with their quick swim through a delicately spiced citrus marinade five minutes prior to hitting the heat, found their ideal counterpart in grits smoky with Benton’s bacon and heady with fontina. A quick drizzle of a double-lobster stock gilded an already gorgeous lily. Lobster roll was classic, an embodiment of this kitchen’s comfort in its own convictions. Maine lobster, Hellmann’s mayonnaise, celery, cayenne and a bright hit of

Strike a pose: Poached-then-grilled baby Spanish octopus at Happy Rooster was a great visual; tentacles vogueing as if on a movie poster.

lemon juice shouldn’t be this addictive, but the ratio was so well-calibrated that I found myself shaking my head in amazement with each bite. And how can you not love the cookout reference and impeccably chosen New England hot dog bun it’s served in? The burger, too, takes a casual, quintessentially American item and gives it some thoughtful love with an ingenious bacon-onion jam that finds its center of gravity in the dead center of the sweet-savory continuum. There are only two desserts on the menu, both made in-house and both worth the somewhat considerable wait. The time it took for them to come out was quickly forgotten once they arrived. Apple crumble is a seasonal fantasy, the honey crisps cooked down in sugar and butter, the creme fraiche (the one part of it not made here) a round reminder of cooler days to come. Zeppoles with a side of dense, bitter-hinting chocolate sauce are among the airiest in the city, their fried, cinnamon-and-sugardusted jackets crumbling into a dough more air than mass. Aside from wanting a few more options in the beer department (food this good deserves more suds-love, though sous chef Matt Savastano said later that the Rooster is looking to expand its beer program), the Happy Rooster is hitting every right note. It’s been around for more than four decades, and has seen this city through a thousand food trends and restaurant fads. Now, it seems, under the relatively recent ownership of Debbie and Norris Jordan and the vision of chef Goodenough, it’s staking out its own spot in the city, crowing for a little attention and stunning at every turn. n

ACTUAL SANDWICH

The tradition of Shank’s dates back to 1962 when Shank’s and Evelyn’s (“Shank’s“) opened its doors to the Italian Market near 10th and Catherine Streets. Shank’s known best for its Giambotti, hearty soups, steak sandwiches, roast beef, pork, meatballs, chicken cutlet sandwiches and Italian greens, became an Italian Market tradition. Zagat rated Shank’s year after year for :the best sandwiches in the world” Movie Stars, Politicians, Dignitaries and food lovers from around the world frequented Shank’s for nearly half a century making the luncheonette famous for excellence in authentic Italian food with no nonsense service.

SIX PACK Six Models Who Can Actually Act By Matt Prigge mprigge@philadelphiaweekly.com

Bad Romance in Stone Lurid pulp is too ridiculous even for its genre. By Sean Burns

sburns@philadelphiaweekly.com

Cameron Diaz: Audrey Hepburn started out as a model, as did Marilyn Monroe. There’s no reason a pretty face can’t also deliver a fiery monologue. Or a tear-stricken Oscar speech. Or, wearing a wig that resembles a natty broom, outright steal Being John Malkovich from a supposedly more qualified cast. She’s a dementedly enthusiastic presence in even Knight and Day. Vincent Gallo: Calvin Klein models tend to be more interesting-looking than dashing, and interesting definitely describes everything about Gallo, a writer/director/ actor/musician/CK model who also sells his sperm on his personal website. Apart from intense turns in Tetro and Trouble Every Day, the unlikely Republican is also the creator of unique, delicate and frankly amazing auteur projects, one of which may or may not involve him getting a real-life BJ from Chloe Sevigny. Milla Jovovich: Last year, this Ukrainian model delivered a bizarrely credible performance in The Fourth Kind. It’s a secret that Jovovich, when she’s not taciturnly kicking ass in Resident Evil and its sequels and Ultraviolet, is (possibly) a freaky-alert thespian. Don’t be too shocked by her high marks in Stone—it wasn’t Elle MacPherson who fluently rattled off a made-up language in The Fifth Element. Cybill Shepherd: It was a Glamour cover

Charlize Theron: In last year’s The Burning

the stuffy old man, setting a honey trap that’s bound to spring the moment Milla Jovovich sashays onscreen. These two are obviously aiming to lure De Niro’s constipated churchgoer into some conduct unbecoming of an officer, which will no doubt influence his report for the parole board. Already, the logic strikes me as suspect. Let’s just say you ended up sleeping with a dangerous

“Edward Norton in cornrows is actually one of the least ludicrous things you’ll see in Stone.” convict’s wife—wouldn’t it be in your best interest to make sure the guy stays behind bars for as long as humanly possible? Nonetheless, it isn’t long before Jovovich is seated across from De Niro at a picnic table in short-shorts, suggestively sucking on hard-boiled eggs while Curran’s camera caresses those legs that stretch halfway up her back. But surprisingly, if anyone escapes Stone without embarrassment, it’s Jovovich—a remarkable physical actress who has been stranded for so long

Grade: D+ Director: John Curran Starring: Robert De Niro, Milla Jovovich, Edward Norton Running time: 105 minutes

The setup is the stuff of pure pulp. Norton stars as a greasy gangbanger, currently serving year number eight of the 15 he was sentenced as an accessory to the murder of his grandparents. (Yes, you read that right—his grandparents.) Robert De Niro plays his stubborn parole officer, who of course happens to be one month away from retirement.

It might be hard to believe, but the sight of Edward Norton in cornrows is actually one of the least ludicrous things you’ll see in Stone. Director John Curran’s melodrama is so awesomely overripe, so cataclysmically misjudged at every turn, that it eventually inspires a strange fascination. By the end, I couldn’t take my eyes off the screen for wondering what wrong choice could possibly come next.

Plain, the South African model/actress played the daughter of Kim Basinger. Both actresses are models who improbably won Oscars. The difference: Theron’s closer to really earning hers.

shot that caught the eye of Peter Bogdanovich as he was casting The Last Picture Show. Shepherd proceeded to wreck her director’s marriage, but also to prove herself an able comedic talent. Apart from holding her own on Moonlighting, she’s a sneaky presence in Taxi Driver and quite sharp in Bogdanovich’s actually-not-bad bomb At Long Last Love.

in schlock that she’s learned to make the most of movement. Jovovich also comes off quite sprightly playing against the lone grumpy facial expression Robert De Niro has been passing off as a performance for the past decade. You would think that after that one wretched scene in Steven Spielberg’s otherwise astonishing Munich, directors everywhere would have realized that gruesome slayings crosscut with explicit sex scenes are two great tastes that most decidedly do not taste great together. Alas, Curran juxtaposes the nasty spectacle of Milla Jovovich astride Robert De Niro with an even nastier prison shivving, prompting snickers and inevitable penetration jokes from the peanut gallery. While witnessing the murder, Norton has some sort of bizarre epiphany, prompting him to join a wacky made-up religion that seems to be based on cosmic audio frequencies, and that’s when Angus MacLachlan’s screenplay pretty much loses its damn mind. Stone flips from lurid noir to spiritual inquisition, pontificating endlessly about religion and its role in society. In case we’re in any danger of missing the point, De Niro is never not listening to Christian talk radio, and the fire-and-brimstone hosts are always conveniently discussing a subject related to whatever just happened in the previous scene. Norton’s embrace of aural Zen gobbledygook has him aspiring to become “a human tuning fork.” I’m not sure what that means, but at least he loses the cornrows. He also stops talking like Eminem and lapses into breathy, hayseed philosophizing that sounds like a parody of the narration in Terrence Malick films. Curran shoots this hokum almost exclusively in background-flattening telephoto close-ups that asphyxiate the frame. Much ado is made about the De Niro character’s history of violence, yet the closest our lazy legend can come to volatility is muttering the c-word under his breath at work. He and his wife (Frances Conroy) spend an inordinate amount of screen time reading the Bible, guzzling whiskey and staring into the middle distance. When the fires of Hell finally make an appearance, they’re hardly enough to shake off the torpor. MacLachlan and Curran obviously have a lot on their minds regarding sin and redemption. But whatever Stone actually has to say about such matters remains beyond me. n

The brunt of Cameron Yates’ doc isn’t the scandal, but its less-skeezy aftermath— what becomes of the news sensation once the sensation ends? The film, a blob of home-movie-looking footage, follows Maier as she tries to get a new job, watches the TV movie made about her career and waits for journos to bang on her door every time one of her prominent clients is busted. This sad and often shitty-looking film doesn’t seem fully to know what to do with what it has in front of it. Thurs., Oct. 21, 7pm, RA; Sat., Oct. 23, 5:45pm, AC.

plays the Venezuelan globetrotter as one of the era’s endless supply of sexy terrorists.

The Philadelphia Film Festival is starting its second week of showing more than 100 films from around the world. Here are 11 of the most interesting selections opening this week; visit philadelphiaweekly.com for even more coverage.

In 1976 Germantown, two former Black Panthers (Kerry Washington and Anthony Mackie) reconnect, while an abused neighborhood kid (Amari Cheatom) adopts the mythological violent version of the Panther ethos as a solution to his problems. The feature debut of local Tanya Hamilton gently explores the repercussions of the past and how noble ideas can have unexpected, and sometimes destructive, consequences. Peerlessly acted, including fine turns from The Wire’s Jamie Hector and Wendell Pierce, Night is sometimes subtle to a fault, but there are worse problems to have. (See interview with Tanya Hamilton, next page.) Fri., Oct. 22, 7:30pm, PMT; Sat., Oct. 23, 12:30pm, R5.

The latest assault from late-period JeanLuc Godard plays, for its first half, like Love Boat as violently reconceived by the maker of Weekend, with a cruise ship of war criminals, Russian detectives and little girls spouting its maker’s trademark gnomic aphorisms. Switching between widely varying video stocks and languages, it’s funnier and pissier than average Godard—because some of us find Godard to be, to a large extent, a cranky comedian. The key quip: “But what has changed today is the assholes are sincere.” Too true. Wed., Oct. 20, 7:30pm and Sun., Oct. 24, noon, RA.

The Housemaid: C+ A South Korean redo of one of South Korea’s film classics—which you can and should catch just prior to this one’s lone appearance—Im Sang-soo’s psychodrama is remake as inversion. In the 1960 original, the titular staffer played predator to a wealthy family’s prey; here, it’s the wealthy family who devour a helpless housemaid. It’s an intriguing switch-up—remakes

Concerned the spastic behind Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire will calm the fuck down with a film depicting loneliness? Pshaw. Danny Boyle directs the real-life tale of a reckless adventurer (James Franco) who belatedly summons the will to amputate his trapped arm like a Gatorade commercial—X-treme isolation. At least he avoids bad surrealism (sofas in caves?) until the back third, and Franco is appropriately annoying. Sat., Oct. 23, 7pm and Sun., Oct. 24, 7:20pm, PMT.

The Princess of Montpensier: BFor nearly three reels, Bertrand Tavernier (Coup de Torchon, ‘Round Midnight) tricks us into thinking he’s done something novel with what is, storywise, boilerplate period romance. He hasn’t, but this is still a tough film, filled with muscular camerawork and clipped, no-nonsense performances. Lambert Wilson’s disgraced count vies for the affections of the titular babe (Mélanie Thierry) with lesser rivals, and though Tavernier runs out of steam well before the

bloated length is up, their courtship is more duel than dance. Sat., Oct. 23, 2:30pm, R5.

Raspberry Magic: BA nice, harmless, forgettable Amerindie, Leena Pendharkar’s dramedy watches as an Indian family nearly implodes in American suburbia. As her computer-game-inventing father suffers a breakdown, an 11-year-old struggles to win a science fair. Nothing you haven’t seen before, right down to the old-fashioned robot, but familiarity doesn’t necessarily breed contempt. Sat., Oct. 23, 8pm, IH.

The Room: F/A Great bad movie or the greatest bad movie? Only one way to find out. Fri., Oct. 22, 11:59pm, IH.

A Screaming Man: B From Chad, Mahamat-Saleh Haroun’s drama plays like a remake of F.W. Murnau’s The Last Laugh, in which the elderly lead—here, a pool attendant who loses the job that is his pride and whole identity— sells his son to the army so he can get his job back. No, I’m not buying that either, but get over the improbability hump and there’s plenty to admire, from the savage social commentary to the striking cinemascope long takes that let our antihero’s guilt sink right in. Fri., Oct. 22, 5:10pm and Sat., Oct. 24, 12:10pm, R5.

Secret Sunshine: BJeon Do-yeon (also in The Housemaid) scored the Best Actress trophy at Cannes for Lee Chang-dong’s 2007 griefathon. An already fragile single parent collapses utterly following her young son’s murder. She then proceeds through various stages of grief, making pit stops at religion, anonymous sex and other unhelpful aids. Lee’s calm, patient direction stands in too-tidy counterpoint to the gruesome plot turns he’s devised, but the presence of Song Kang-ho as the eternal arm to cry on undercuts the borderline exploitation. Thurs., Oct. 21, 7pm and Sat., Oct. 23, 4:55pm, R5.

White Material: B Downright conventional for French sensualist Claire Denis (Trouble Every Day), this war saga is still a challenge. Isabelle Huppert plays the matriarch of a coffee plantation in an unnamed African country. Civil war comes to town, affecting both their lives and the film’s structure, which jumps around differently hued sections. The idea is to simulate lives thrown into disarray, rendering its Western colonialists neither bad nor good and, in the case of Huppert’s young adult son, spectacularly confused. Fri., Oct. 22, 7:35pm, R5. n


Mother Night The director of Night Catches Us on history, Philly and the Panthers. By Matt Prigge mprigge@philadelphiaweekly.com

When Tanya Hamilton was 16, she discovered that her mother’s good friend Carol, who lived with them and whom she considered a second mom, had spent a year in jail for political activism. She had no idea that this cranky woman she had known for so long had had this alternate life—a youth spent in sit-ins. She was intrigued. Carol materializes, albeit modified, in Hamilton’s debut feature, Night Catches Us, an indie filmed last year in Germantown that’s now one of the Gala Screenings at this year’s Philadelphia Film Festival. She’s now the more-loving Patricia (played by Kerry Washington), a lawyer, mother and former Black Panther in 1976 Philadelphia. Her past returns in the form of Marcus (Anthony Mackie), another ex-Panther who years back was falsely accused of ratting to the police and getting her husband killed. “I wanted to look at the Panther movement as a metaphor for war,” says Hamilton. Though the Black Panthers aren’t physically in the film—apart from sporadic newsreel cutaways—their presence haunts the portrait of a less-hectic but in no way peaceful bicentennial America. Patricia and Marcus are older, wiser and calmer than their rash younger selves. “The Panthers are so fascinating to me because they were made up of people who were massively young,” says Hamilton, pointing out that Panther deputy chairman Fred Hampton was assassinated when he was 21. She remembers being a “narcissist” herself at that age. “I think it’s chemical. Maybe there’s a rare 24-year-old who’s not a huge narcissist.” The combination of youth and social

distress, she argues, birthed the Panthers. “You have these people who have so much at stake, because they’re living in a world that for them is upside-down. But then there’s also this emotional thing, about being young. There’s a clash.” Hamilton was born in Jamaica, raised in Maryland and educated at Columbia. She moved to Philadelphia about a decade ago, not long after her first attempts to write what would become Night Catches Us. She describes the first drafts as “terrible,” including the one she submitted to the Sundance Lab. Her script improved; Hamilton eventually went with private financing. A period piece on a tight budget is tricky business—unable to afford ’70s classics for the soundtrack, she managed to land the Roots to compose and record the retroyet-modern score. Luckily, her current home proved an ideal setting for a movie set in that era. Germantown still looks like the 1970s, and thanks to our city’s wealth of stocked thrift stores, she scored couldn’t-be-more-authentic clothes and period details for a song. The producers, however, originally wanted Brooklyn. “But there’s a rawness to Philly,” she says. “There’s something very Southern. The history of black people and their clashes with the police is so distinct here. Brooklyn does not have that raw history.” Nor did it have the specific, volatile relationship of the black community with police commissioner and future Mayor Frank Rizzo. With cameras soon set to roll, she was still hearing horror stories. A fellow filmmaker told her about the time in 1970

that Rizzo raided the Panthers in search of evidence in the shootings of two cops the previous nights. About a hundred officers descended on their Philadelphia offices right before a national Panthers convention at Temple. Though they found no evidence, the police forced the Panthers to strip down before news cameras. Hamilton worked a similar scene in Night Catches Us. But the revolutionary spirit materializes most explicitly in the character of Jimmy, a young, unemployed local whose frustrations are so profound he winds up emboldened by the Panther mythology— not the actual one, but the stereotype. One key scene involves a comic encouraging Panthers to kill cops. Marcus points out it was created by the feds to instill a fear of the Panthers in the general population. “There’s the idea that the Panthers killed people or blew things up, when in fact they came out of grassroots. They came out of community organizing, the kinds of things we’re surrounded by now,” she says. “I saw Jimmy as all the kids I went to high school with in the ’80s: Latching onto somebody else’s history, someone else’s ideology, and getting it wrong. Because it’s not yours.” All this said, Hamilton does not see Night Catches Us as about the Panthers, or even as a political film. “I wanted the smallness of moments,” she says of a film that is anything but pushy. “I do not like messages. I love metaphor. I love minutiae. I pushed for subtlety a lot. You could look at a scene and think it’s flat. But there’s so much in the unspoken. There’s so much in between the lines.” n

“THE BEST CAST FOR AN ACTION COMEDY…EVER.” – Roger Moore, ORLANDO SENTINEL

New Releases

Vision: From the Life of Hildegard von Bingen: C

During the decade or so James Cameron spent toiling away on groundbreaking advances in 3D photography, I wonder if he ever imagined that all his hard work would someday result in a movie where some dude plays the trumpet with his asshole. Suck it, Avatar. Jackass 3D is a technological marvel, the first three-dimensional motion picture I’ve seen that justifies that garish surcharge at the ticket booth. Utilizing the cutting edge of stereoscopic effects and the newest high-speed Phantom digital camera, capable of shooting super-slow-motion at up to a thousand frames a second, this is stupidity with impeccable technical credentials. OK, so all these brilliant innovations are in the service of more genital trauma and fecal matter than Pasolini’s Salò, but it helps that I am a cretin and this kind of thing makes me laugh uncontrollably. The last thing we need is another academic defense of Jackass, so I’ll spare you the Dadaist, Buñuelian jargon that we pointy-heads use to justify giggling until our faces hurt. (I also probably already wrote one of those four years ago, when the last movie came out.) There’s a contagious jubilance to the idiocy of Johnny Knoxville and company—a strange camaraderie built on kicking each other in the nuts. They’re always cackling as they limp around in agony, heartily slapping each other on the back. An entire television series and three films’ worth of wall-to-wall scatology and extreme examples of physical pain should probably come off as sadistic, yet somehow the adolescent giddiness remains infectious. They’re not getting any younger, though. There’s a slight undercurrent of melancholy to this third and presumably final installment. The gags aren’t as death-defyingly baroque as in 2006’s Jackass Number Two, and the newly sober Steve-O in particular spends a lot of screen time wondering what the hell he’s gotten himself into this time. The closing credits sequence strikes a valedictory note, as if everybody decided it’s probably best to quit while they’re ahead—before somebody gets killed. It’s the rare sequel where no one actually says, “I’m too old for this

It’s impossible to shake the notion, during director Tony Goldwyn’s cuddly legal drama, that you could just as easily be watching the same movie starring Jennie Garth on a high-numbered cable channel some hungover Sunday afternoon when you’re too arsed to change the channel. A small-screen picture with a big-screen cast, Conviction tells the true-life story of Betty Anne Waters, a gutsy northern Massachusetts waitress whose wayward brother, Kenny, was wrongfully accused of a gruesome murder. As played by Sam Rockwell, Ken’s a bit of a hard-partying wild man, but he sure as heck ain’t no killer. Plucky Betty Anne is going to prove her big brother’s innocence—gosh darn it— even if she has to go to law school herself to get the job done! Hilary Swank headlines as Betty Anne, bringing that specifically Swank-ian strain of toothy gumption that can sometimes make you wish Clint Eastwood would drop by and euthanize her. The blandly inspirational Conviction goes down fairly painlessly, with a minimum of you-go-girl montages and even less suspense. Going from high school dropout to practicing lawyer looks awfully easy, especially for a single mom on a barmaid’s salary. Any big setbacks in the case are typically resolved by Betty Anne asking again, but this time really nicely. There’s just not a lot of conflict in Pamela Gray’s screenplay, which strikes me as slightly odd considering that it’s about a gross miscarriage of justice that cost a man 18 years of his life. We never have any doubt as to the outcome, nor any question of Kenny’s innocence. Rockwell does a fine job suggesting the ravages of almost two decades behind bars, yet the movie never allows him to suggest why such a harmless goofball would even be a suspect in the first place. There’s a tart turn from Minnie Driver as Swank’s no-nonsense best friend, while Juliette Lewis bites down on a nasty set of stained dentures that seem to have cracked on all the scenery she’s chewing. Hijacking the movie for 10 minutes of dropped R’s and boozed-up affectations, Lewis’ performance, much like The Town, confirms that

Review by Sean Burns

Review by Matt Prigge

The films of New German Cinema legend Margarethe von Trotta (The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum, Rosenstrasse) double as a catalogue of history’s proto-feminists— women who chipped away at the patriarchal system at large, but who are mostly recognized these days in 400-level history books. And at least in the last decade or so, they’re about as lively and deep as that description. It’s great to learn about Hildegard von Bingen, a 12th-century Benedictine nun and renaissance woman. She was a mystic who saw visions, a composer and a scientist, and, if that wasn’t enough, a naturalist with a yen for herbal remedies. It would be even better to learn about her in history class, or at least in a film that didn’t play, aesthetically, like a lessenergetic Wikipedia entry. Von Trotta regular Barbara Sukowa sneaks in some much-needed nuance as the simultaneously modest and ambitious nun who grows confident enough to preach against self-flagellation and argue that God wants us to be proud of the beauty He created. When she reveals that she’s been receiving word from upstairs, her crusty male superiors split two ways: Nicer monks are excited about a new prophet; other, meaner-looking ones remain meanly skeptical about someone, much less a woman, having been personally tapped by the supreme deity for the first time in ages. From there on out, Vision cites her many accomplishments on her rise to the glass ceiling. (Although not all: Apparently there wasn’t room to delve into her prolific, pioneering music career.) And it exercises the smug historical act of examining the past through the prism of the progressive present, right down to a homoerotic—but never close to consummated—relationship between Hildegard and one of her female charges. Hildegard was a force for progress and that’s that, though Sukowa’s performance gently suggests a certain arrogance, the lone flaw in her character. Otherwise, this is an indifferently filmed account, played out by actors forced to talk in stiff, declarative sentences, of a great woman who did great things—and isn’t that great? n

215-231-9937


My husband and I have had an open marriage for the last two years. Up until five months ago, it was working beautifully. At that point, however, I was sexually assaulted by a former partner. Since that incident, I cannot stand sex with my husband. I become panicked and feel repulsed. Those times when I go along with it anyway leave me feeling enraged and disgusted. I don’t think this is unheard of for someone who was assaulted, and I am considering therapy. The immediate “problem” is that I have no difficulty having sex with my boyfriend. In fact, the sex with him is amazing and leaves me feeling loved and and wonderful. This is breaking my husband’s heart. He has become jealous of my relationship with my boyfriend. He’s depressed. He’s angry. He wants me to stop sleeping with my boyfriend until our marriage is back to normal. I feel horrible, but I just can’t do that. I need that outlet. I need that support. And I admit I have a hard time believing that my husband and I will ever be able to go back to the way things were before. I feel like I’ve already lost my former partner and my husband. It kills me to think about cutting out the one positive relationship remaining. On the other hand, I do love my husband, and watching him suffer like this is unbearable. Potentially Traumatized Sexual Deviant

I am a 47-year-old gay man who has a desire to be humiliated and degraded—by a straight guy! How do I make this happen? Do I just walk up to a straight guy and tell him I want to get on my knees and clean his shoes with my tongue while he spits on me and calls me names? How do I approach some straight guy with my request without getting beaten up? Please don’t say, “Settle for a very straight-acting gay guy.” I have tried that, and it doesn’t work! The guy must be straight! Otherwise, it’s just not a turn-on for me. I’m so desperate that I’m almost willing to pay for it! Worthless Piece Of Shit

Long odds: If you have a wide circle of sexually adventurous straight friends, WPOS, and you were open with all of your friends about your kinks in a friendly, nonthreatening manner, maybe one or two of your straight male friends might be indulgent/perverse enough to want to engage in a little role-play with you. (And, yes, it’s possible to make someone feel threatened by offering to lick their boots and take their abuse.) Somewhat shorter odds: Don’t have friends like that? Well, there are a lot of BDSM groups and orgs out there that are mixed, i.e., they have gay, lesbian, straight, bi, and trans members, and most host mixed play parties. Get involved with one, be open about your kinks, and you’ll meet a few kinky straight male tops who would get a kick out of slapping you around. Best odds: Pay for it, already. I’m a het male professional in my mid-20s who wants to find a female dominant partner. Pro-dom services abound for stereotypes like me, but I’m looking for a D/s relationship rather than just playtime. Predictably, I can’t find one. Women I meet randomly are mostly socialized to want dominant men, and kink personal sites like FetLife only make my plight look even direr: Nearly all the doms are either pros or in their 50s. It’s a given that dominant women my age are unicorns, but how can I maximize those slim chances? Seeking Unrestrained Bitch

By keeping your kink personal ad updated—unlike unicorns, kinky younger women do exist, and you want them to be able to find your ad when they troll on FetLife—and by reconciling yourself to the fact that most submissive straight men in D/s relationships met vanilla women who weren’t perverts themselves but were pervertible.

Relaxation with a European flair! Enjoy a no-rush

I’ve never heard of someone with two clits— but I haven’t searched the medical literature or sought the opinion of an expert. And I’m not inclined to search or seek when a letter is so transparently fake. (Opaque fakes are fine; every letter that makes it into the

column is a good hypothetical question— for every reader save one.) People whose genitals are different or ambiguous or terrifying—maybe that’s not an extra clit but the tip of your parasitic twin’s nose— frequently have questions and concerns, TMF, but multiple earthshaking orgasms aren’t high on the list. You don’t have a single clit, TMF, much less two. You’re a horny boy with a dick, an email account, and an obsession with/ terror of a woman’s potential capacity for unlimited sexual pleasure. And I’m hoping—I’m hoping against hope—that seeing your letter in print isn’t your peak sexual experience. But odds are …

October 20 - 26, 2010

I have two clits. How common is this? I have never been able to ride a bike because I have an earthshaking orgasm as soon as I get on the seat. I come on the bus—the soft vibrations are too much! Walking in tight pants gets me moaning. Is there anything I can do, or rub on myself, to avoid having multiple orgasms in public? Two Much Fun

I’m sorry that you were sexually assaulted— that’s awful, PTSD, and I hope you went to the police and I hope you’re pressing charges. But I also hope you know that being the victim of sexual assault is not a Get Out of Being a Human Being Free card. Just because you’ve been victimized doesn’t mean you operate in an alternate moral universe where you’re not obligated to take other people’s feelings into consideration—particularly the feelings of people you profess to love and happen to be married to. Your first priority in the wake of your assault had to be your own physical and emotional safety, of course, but your behavior toward your husband is both cruel and selfish. If you truly loved your husband and valued your marriage, PTSD, you would’ve put the boyfriend on hold and gotten your ass into therapy without having to be told. So from where I sit—on the Bloomington Shuttle, headed to the Indianapolis airport—it looks to me like you want out of this marriage. But instead of taking responsibility for wanting out—not in love with the husband anymore—you’re playing the victim card while slamming both hands down on your marriage’s self-destruct button. To sum up, PTSD: You’re being a total shit. Do you love your husband? Is your marriage a priority? Then start acting like it: Cut the boyfriend off—for the indefinite future—and get your ass onto a counselor’s couch. If you’re not willing to do those things, PTSD, then stop emotionally assaulting your husband and put both your marriage and him out of their misery.
