Are you ready to watch some local doctors perform with a different kind of sharp instrument? The Physician Talent Review returns this year, showcasing the talents of local physicians and friends, at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 27 at the First Baptist Church Banquet Hall, 715 Green St., Gainesville. The event is the annual fundraising dinner for Good News Clinics in Gainesville. The show will feature entertainment by Drs. John Darden, Cathy Finch, Mike Gottsman, Bill Hallowes, Holt Harrison and Tennent Slack as well as Fred Mulkey, Allen Nivens and Christ Wright. The lineup has been expanded to include Drs. Tim Scully and Jack Griffeth. “Last year, this group received rave reviews by those in attendance,” said Dr. Richard Bennett, GNC board chairman. “We’re very excited and appreciative that these physicians are donating their time and talent to help support the much needed services provided by GNC.” Tickets are $50 per person or $400 for a reserved table for eight. Preferred seating and a table for eight are available with a silver sponsorships for $1,000 or gold for $2,500.

When: 6:30 p.m. Sept. 27 Where: First Baptist Church Banquet Hall, 715 Green St., Gainesville How much: $50 per person, $400 table for eight, silver sponsorship $1,000, gold sponsorship $2,500

The evening includes a seated dinner and presentation of the Dr. Sam Poole Volunteer of the Year Award to an outstanding volunteer. Funds from the event will help the clinics meet a recent fundraising challenge to raise $80,000 by the end of September for a matching grant. The money will go toward annual operating expenses so volunteer physicians and dentists can continue to serve those in need in Hall County with free health care services.

Since 1993 Good News Clinics has been offering free health care services to uninsured residents of Hall County whose income falls below 150 percent of the federal poverty level and who have no other means of health care. During a span of nearly 20 years, the scope of services offered by the nonprofit has grown to include medical care, dental care, medications, patient education and specialty care referrals from volunteer medical professionals.

‘Curve’ throws a strike, thanks to stars JEFF MARKER jmarker@gsc.edu

Film Review It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to say this: the new Clint Eastwood film is a great date movie. “Trouble with the Curve” comes billed as a sports movie, but baseball serves merely as a backdrop and a source of conflict for two intertwined stories, one about a father and daughter bonding and the other about two opposites falling in love. The movie is formulaic and offers nothing new, but the story is told capably and the actors give strong performances. It was also shot in Athens, Hall County and surrounding areas and features the Atlanta Braves, Warner Bros. Pictures which adds a layer of pleasure for North Georgians. Clint Eastwood, right, and Amy Adams walk at Turner Field in Atlanta in a scene from “Trouble with the Curve.” The All of this elevates a film, about an aging and ailing baseball scout, will be released on Sept. 21. predictable story up to the level of satisfying entertainment. But Mickey harbors much an Eastwood film. expected, tearful conversation The movie begins with Gus resentment toward her dad, The screenplay also makes with her, which ends with Gus (Clint Eastwood) wandering onto who was absent throughout a few huge, unmotivated leaps. singing “You Are My Sunshine” to a convention stage and talking her childhood and is generally Mickey and Gus don’t slowly the tombstone.

the tempo slows and the energy drops. Yet whenever they are on screen with Adams, the movie becomes irresistible. Adams stands toe-to-toe against one of the most imposing figures in all of movie history. She and Eastwood spar and admirably plumb what little depth the screenplay gives them. Adams and Timberlake also find the joy in a painfully predictable romance. The movie will underwhelm those looking for great drama, but it combines drama, comedy and sports in a way that should please moviegoing couples.

Movie reviews from Associated Press. Stars out of four.

Opening

‘Trouble with the Curve’ ■ Review, 10

‘Dredd’ H½ (R for strong bloody violence, language, drug use and some sexual content.) Say whatever else you want about Sylvester Stallone’s kitschy 1995 turn as futuristic comic book judge-jury-executioner Judge Dredd, the dude wore the helmet. Karl Urban replaces him in the new “Dredd 3D.” And frankly, the helmet wears Karl. He never takes off the oversized thing. It closes off his performance and masks his charisma. We only see his scowling

jaw and hear his hissed one-liners, chewing out the rookie mind-reading judge (Olivia Thirlby) who forgets to wear hers. In a future when much of America is irradiated and 800 million people are crammed into MegaCity, tens of thousands are packed into mega high-rises, many at the mercy of mega criminals. The judges are

all that stand in the way of anarchy. They’re wired-in, hi-tech hunter/ prosecutor/ killers, men and women who solve (sort of) crimes, catch criminals and dole out punishment, on the spot. When Dredd and the “mutant” psychic judge-intraining, Anderson (Thirlby), nab one of a drug lord’s thugs (Wood Harris), of course this means war.

‘The Words’ HH (PG-13 for brief language.) It boasts an impressive cast and some glimmers of strong performances, notably from a grizzled Jeremy Irons, whose character sets the film’s many storieswithin-stories in motion as a young man. And it kinda-sorta explores the notions of art, fraud and the need to sleep at night. But ultimately, “The Words” seems more interested in melodrama than anything else. The writing-directing team of Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal direct for the first time here. While they’ve come up with a clever nugget of a premise, they’ve couched it in a gimmicky package that

keeps us at arm’s length emotionally. “The Words” begins with celebrated writer Clay Hammond (Dennis Quaid) reading excerpts from his latest best-selling novel to an enraptured crowd. As Clay begins to read, the film flashes to the characters in the book and their story, which is probably where

the film should have started all along. Cooper plays Rory Jansen, who also happens to be a celebrated writer appearing before an enraptured crowd. Rory is receiving a prestigious award for his debut novel, the one that made him an instant literary sensation. Trouble is, he didn’t actually write it.

goo movies ‘The Master ’ HHH (R for sexual content, graphic nudity and language.) Viewers hoping for a juicy expose of the supersecretive Church of Scientology might want to adjust their expectations just a tad. Writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson has acknowledged that the cult leader of the film’s title — played with great bluster and bravado by Philip Seymour Hoffman, one of his longtime players — was inspired by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. And certain key phrases and ideas that are tenets of the church do show up in the film. And yet, the church — or rather, “The Cause,” as it’s known here — emerges relatively unscathed. Hoffman’s Lancaster Dodd, whom

gainesvilletimes.com/getout | Thursday, September 20, 2012

inebriated Freddie Quell, seems at his happiest once he’s safely ensconced within the group. But “The Master” isn’t interested in anything so clear-cut as joy vs. misery. It’s about the way people’s lives intersect, if only briefly and perhaps without a satisfying sense of closure. Anderson, long a master himself of technique and tone, has created a startling, stunningly gorgeous film shot in lushly vibrant 65mm, with powerful performances all around and impeccable production design. But it’s also his most ambitious film yet — quite a feat following the sprawling “Magnolia” and the operatic “There Will Be Blood” — in that it’s more impressionistic and less adherent to a tidy three-act structure.

Japanese ceramic masters on display at Piedmont From staff reports Like Northeast Georgia, the Echizen region of Japan has been home to generations of potters. But while regions like Mossy Creek can claim a 200-year tradition of wood-fired ceramics, the artisans of Echizen have been producing distinctive pottery for more than 800 years. Some of the best works representative of Echizen potters will be on display Sept. 20 through Oct. 20 at the MasonScharfenstein Museum of Art at Piedmont College in Demorest. The show is curated by Chris Kelly, chair of the Department of Art at Piedmont, and Preston Saunders, associate professor of art at Bridgewater State College. The museum is located at 567 Georgia St. in Demorest, and is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Titled “The Heart of Echizen: Wood Fired Works by Contemporary Masters,” the show focuses on a diverse group of potters working in Echizen today. “Developing a theme for a cohesive show originally proved difficult,” Kelly said. “Today’s potters in Echizen are remarkably different now than they were throughout the majority of Echizen’s ceramic history. Then, potters fired their ceramic work in community wood kilns

out of necessity; now, most potters have their own wood kiln and firing with wood is an aesthetic choice.” In order to explore the diversity found among potters in Echizen, the curators chose a variety of potters. Juroemon Fujita IX made traditional utilitarian pottery, continuing techniques and reproducing surfaces in his kiln passed down for eight generations, Kelly said. Naoki Izumi moved to Echizen because of its rural setting and long tradition in wood firing. Yasumi Hattori feels the wood-fired surface complements the forms she creates for use in the Japanese tea ceremony. Kuroemon Kumano fires his kiln to uncommonly extreme temperatures. What makes the Echizen pottery especially prized is that many of its potters continue the use of extremely high-temperature, wood-fired kilns called anagama kilns. They typically use no glaze on the pots, relying on the ash from the fire to melt into the clay, producing earth tones of grays, greens and browns. The ash also produces unique textures on each pot that can vary from baby smooth on one side to sharkskin rough on the other, depending on how the pot was exposed to the heat. The Heart of Echizen is the third exhibition focusing on Echizen ceramics to travel to the United States.

Her uncertainties about motherhood trigger an impulsive road trip to the source of her anxiety: her long-estranged mother living far away. Annie J. Howell and Lisa Robinson co-directed this comic coming-ofparenthood tale for the Internet age. Notable film reviewer Roger Ebert wrote in the Chicago Sun-Times that the film “is effortlessly engaging in introducing us to the characters.” He refers to Hollyman as having “a lovable screen presence” with “the sort of

charm we felt from the first films of Sandra Bullock or Greta Gerwig.” Upcoming films in the series include “Otis Under Sky,” Oct. 18 at Gainesville State College, Martha Nesbitt Academic Building; “Smokin’ Fish,” Nov. 8, at Gainesville State; “Girl Model,” Feb. 14 at Gainesville State; “Free China,” March 28 at the Smithgall Arts Center; and “Strong!” April 18 at the Smithgall Arts Center.
