THE CURRENT WAR

t's that time of the year again, just before the holiday blockbusters hit the theaters, and the distributors are pushing their leftover stock of mediocre films. The Current War is a prime example. It sat on the shelf unreleased for two years, ever since its less than spectacular premier at the Toronto Film Festival. However, during that time, in an attempt to fix the movie, the filmmakers reshot, added, and deleted scenes. It didn't help. What we have here is a clear illustration of a great story killed by a poor script and an attempt at some kind of stylistic visualization that falls flat on its face. It's a shame that so much time, money and such great actors were wasted on this project. I certainly didn't expect that to be the case, especially coming from the director of the Indie film Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, which I enjoyed a lot.

Thus begins one of the greatest, no holds barred corporate feuds in American history. It's a great story. Also, historically correct as told. However, in this film, by the time it concludes I found myself bored and disappointed. Here are a couple of reasons why:

Here's the storyline…

The film starts out on the fly, literally at breakneck speed, without much explanation of what's happening, you have to figure that out for yourself, and added to that is this confusing funky stylistic filmmaking that is jarring and hard to get used to. Next, there are important scenes that never have any impact, for instance, when Manhattan is finally lit up, it's still dark, I mean dark. No big change. You would expect the first lighting up of America to have great visual impact; it had none.

The year is 1880 and the industrial revolution is upon us. The two greatest inventors of the time, Thomas Edison (Cumberbatch) and George Westinghouse (Shannon) begin a battle of technological ideas to determine whose electrical system will power this new age.

The whole film is like that; it builds up your expectations and then lets you down. The only consistent parts of the movie are the performances of the actors. Michael Shannon is the best he's ever been here, and Benedict Cumberbatch is a wonderful young Edison.

Also befuddling is the fact that it's being presented with the added "Director's Cut" to the title, as though it's been released to the public before. I'd like to know who came up with that marketing gem. Oh well, such is the film business.

DIRECTED BY: CAST: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, SCREENPLAY BY: Nicholas Hoult, Michael Mitnick Tom Holland, Katherine Waterston, Tuppence Middleton, Matthew Macfadyen

ideal method for bringing electric light to a country still using candles to illuminate their homes. Westinghouse, on the other hand, sees the 'risky' Alternating Current (AC) as a better way to generate the power needed to light up the world, and with the help of futurist Nikolai Tesla (Hoult) develops his system.

Edison, funded by billionaire mag- My take… If you're a 'Turn of the Cennate J.P. Morgan (Macfadyen), be- tury' history buff you might like this lieves his DC current system is the movie. I did not. The Current War Rating: 2 Stars (out of 5) Rated: PG-13

I had the distinct pleasure of personally tasting Chef Sandoval's Friendsgiving dinner. My Thanksgiving dining experience started with the following appetizers, Apple & Carrot Curry Soup; Baby Beet Salad with baby kale, green beans and Stracciatella; Pork Belly with cornbread and carrots; and Acorn Squash Fritters with truffle aioli and Parmigiano. The entrées included the Achiote Chicken with arroz con gandules, piquillo peppers, tostones and cilantro sauce; the Pork Pernil with mashed yuca, chicharron and red onion mojo; and, of course, the Roasted Turkey with sweet potato bravas, jalapeño honey butter and kimchi Brussels sprouts. For dessert, I satisfied my sweet tooth with the Chocolate Caramel Pecan Pie and Maduros Cream Pie. I also enjoyed two refreshing craft cocktails and a great wine pairing with dinner.

VERSACE

SPRING-SUMMER 2020 COLLECTION By Rafa Carvajal | Photos provided by Versace

Versace celebrates contemporary masculinity for its menswear Spring-Summer 2020 collection. According to Donatella Versace, "For this collection, I wanted to explore the elements that empower a man. It's definitely the confidence, the freedom and desire to express himself without hesitation." It also brings iconic house codes and prints mixed in with new styles in the Versace style we all know and love. The collection is reminiscent of a young man's coming of age path, his journey to finding that inner confidence that only comes with age and self-discovery. "The Versace man is free to self-express with no limitations." An ode to '90s culture is also visible throughout the collection with inspiration from the British band Prodigy, widely accredited to the rave moment. Prints on prints are also huge this season with leopard, the Prince of Wales fabric, the archived hand painted Roman god Bacchus print, and many more. Many iconic pieces are reimagined in vibrant saturated colors. The menswear challenges masculinity with Versace's maximalist style through tailoring, fabric and prints.

BOSS

SPRING/SUMMER 2020 COLLECTION By Michael Bustamante | Photos provided by Hugo Boss

BOSS makes its way from New York to the Italian fashion capital – Milan. Both the city and BOSS share a passion for craftsmanship, style and personal expression that allowed a new collection to come to fruition for Spring/Summer 2020 – BOSS Individuals. The collection brings a fresh attitude to BOSS, one that revolves around an individual's power in self-expression. In addition, BOSS kept a little bit of New York with it, designing garments that are influenced, as per usual, by skyscrapers, waterside location, and New Yorkers. The collection brings suits that are a bit more relaxed and sportswear that is a bit more formal, allowing for them to be styled together in endless possibilities without forgoing the unmatched tailoring that has become synonymous with BOSS. The colors this season are light and airy. Think shades of navy, ocean, chambray and pool blue, as well as mint green, sand and cream, with the occasional burst of red and yellow for dramatic effect. The looks also have geometric patterns and color blocking. For shoes, chunky-sole Oxfords and sneakers are the way to go. To view the full collection, visit hugoboss.com.
