More valuable than freedom 
Leave your dignity at the door 


l. is a high stakes game in these 
days of terror. A concept enacted 
With no tolerance for disruption. 
Passing through the gates, you must 
have current photo ID. You are >a< 
number, a precise piece of Lego to 
be wedged into the proper slot. 
Your cell phone is taken from you 
and sealed in a plastic bag. Your CD 
Walkman, too — anything electron- 
Ic. 

Don’t even think of bringing a 
¢amera through, you fool. And you 
Will be patted down, no matter 
what, there’s no dodging these 
intense troopers. Too much is at 
Stake. Don't consider crossing back, 
either; your name will be taken 
down by the men at the door, even 
your selfish bowels must wait. 
These people enforce the new law, 

rding something much more 
valuable than dignity, freedom or 
human life. 

You see, they're guarding a movie 
Screening, in this case Lord of the 
Rings. And it may seem petty to go 
after the effort that ensured no boot- 
leg copies of the film made it to the 
ae py eight-inch-wide visual glory 

e Internet a week back, but the 
Beier should hardly be 
immune from discussion. 

Before seeing the film, each 
reviewer across the country, was 





forced to sign an embargo that 
there'd be no reviewing until the 
release date. ‘Forced’ may be a bad 
word. It’s like going through cus- 
toms at the airport. No one has to 
have their bag searched, but, as they 
qualify on the friendly signs by the 
X-Ray machines, it’s a free country, 
as long as you don’t get on the 
plane. No signy no flicky. 

I bring up airports for a reason. 
We've all been thinking about them 
a lot, of course, and if you dare to 
suggest the fact that nothing’s really 
changed, you'll hear real fast that 
the airports are no longer the fun 
places they used to be. It’s loosely 
true. I was in LAX a few weeks ago 
coming back from Mexico, and sure 
enough, like all good Third World 
countries, soldiers of at least six feet 
were pacing the airport with drawn, 
pointed and obviously loaded 
machine-guns, the proud boys 
wearing camouflage from cap to 
toe. Jungle camouflage, mind you, 
which meant they stuck out some, 
as was intended. If they really want- 
ed to blend in, they should have 
worn men’s bathroom door cos- 


tumes, or dressed like hot stew- 
ardesses from Korea. But, they 
wanted everyone to be simultane- 
ously at peace and completely 
afraid, the American way. Still, a 
couple stern and visible soldiers and 
a few more minutes at the ticket 
counter were inevitable anyway. 
Would have happened sooner or 
later. Lives are at stake. 

Which kind of brings us back to 
all that business of having your 
belongings taken away and being 
groped by some under- or overpaid 
corporate monkey before you walk 
into a movie theatre. Because the 
security there was a lot symbolically 
meaner, insulting and patronizing 
than you'll find at any airport, 
unless you’re the wrong colour, of 
course, another discussion. 

And when one of the Sun chain's 
reporters east of here broke the 
dumb embargo, with an early 
beaming review of the film, mind 
you, they were yelled at, threatened 
and given a hell of an earful for dis- 
cussing a film that already had 
reviews all over the Internet, from 
American critics and lucky geeks 
alike. The dollar fellators were mad 
because they didn’t get to use the 
local media precisely according to 
their national marketing plan, and 
abusive in response. It is a high 
stakes game in these days of terror, 
for the terror comes from within. 
There is something sinister about 
the tightass in control. Keep your 
eye on him 

Remember: he needs you to be 
entertained, shall we say happy, in 
order to thrive.

Welcome, Ed 

Editor, SEE: 

OK, I normally don’t write let- 
ters to publications because after 
over 25 years in the journalist /lit- 
erary field I like to get paid for my 
work and opinions. That and the 
fact most of the gutless, disease- 
ridden editors at word-fabricating 


sweat mills are so afraid of offend- 


ing the thick-headed public or that 
what I write may end up with 
them losing advertisement dollars 
that | have generally regarded it 
as waste of my time. 

This time however I couldn’t sit 
back, no matter how much liquor 
I poured down my throat, and lis- 
ten to the justifications of small 
minded art-fags (and I would like 
to clarify that “art-fag” has noth- 
ing to do with sexual orientation) 
and panic-stricken editors have to 
say about the appearance of the 
Edmonton Journal's attempt to 
move onto the journalistic grid- 
iron of arts reporting by publish-

ing ed. 

I myself welcome this as I have 
a suspicion that at least the rats 
mutated by an increasingly failing 
education system at ed will not 
only pay better but because of 
their links to a strong, though 
obviously corrupt, media and 
power base will have what Tony 
Soprano calls cajones to print what 
their writers really think of local 
artists. These two things alone are 
probably enough to send atomic 
blast waves of fear through your 
small weasel-like hearts. 

also remember the unfortunate 
length of time both publications, 
SEE and Vue, took to review the 
Jennifer Gibson CD Be the Woman. 
The answer was very simple and 
obvious to anyone who wasn’t 
tone-deaf or devoid of a function- 
ing number of brain cells. The CD 


ATTENTION READERS! [egsuukocs 






was not only below par but most 
likely sea level as well. It wasn’t 
until someone was found who 
was willing to pimp their opinion 
like a Boyle Street drug addict 
(while wearing a plaid shirt and 
comfortable shoes I’ll wager) that 
anything was published. I have 
seen this editorial attitude reflect- 
ed for too long and if another 
paper means more accurate and 
better coverage of the arts scene 
here in Edmonton, then maybe I 
can start to regain respect for the 
arts weeklies. Also maybe I can 
see some of the writers with real 
talent and personal opinions cre- 
ate something informative and 
entertaining. This brown nosing 
editorial policy covers every 
aspect of both the independent 
arts weeklies, including restaurant 
reviews and vacation spot cover- 
age, that I am surprised not to see 
them both printed on toilet paper.

SEE*POV 


Police abuse 
power with 
hooker-sweep 
tactics 


Novoay in their right mind 
would dispute the assertion that 
street prostitution wreaks havoc 
on neighbourhoods. Regardless of 
where you stand on the question 
of legalizing and regulating the 
sex trade, there’s no doubting that 
when left on the streets, it 
destroys communities. 

No one in Norwood can be 
blamed for wanting police to 
crack down on it. Residents don’t 
want their children to go out- 
doors. Some women are afraid to 
walk the streets of their own 
neighbourhood for fear of being 
harassed by johns in passing cars. 
In essence, they’ve become prison- 
ers in their own homes. It’s a hor- 
rific situation, to be sure, but that 
doesn’t mean the end justifies the 
EPS’s means. 

Part of the police crackdown 
includes the threat to record the 
licence numbers of vehicles seen 
stopped by known prostitutes and 
sending a “dear john” letter to the 
home of the car’s registered 
owner. This measure is nothing 
short of an abuse of police power. 

Think of the potential for error. 
What if the car is stolen, or even 
borrowed? What if the woman on 
the sidewalk isn’t a prostitute? 
There are myriad possibilities for 
erroneously ruining lives, to say 
nothing of the fact that police will 
be punishing people for doing 
nothing wrong. the last time we 
checked, talking to someone isn’t 
against the law. In fact, prostitu- 
tion isn’t illegal — only communi- 
cating in public for the purposes 
of prostitution. The “dear john” 
campaign throws due process out 
the window. 

The people of Norwood deserve 
to be helped, but the police 


shouldn’t have to abuse basic civil | 


liberties in order to do it.

@ KING OF WOOLWORTHS 
@ MING STAR 
i MANTRA/BEGGARS GROUP 

Wow. If you haven’t heard of 
King Of Woolworths, you soon 
will — that is, if your CD collec- 
tion includes the likes of Aphex 
Twin. In Fact KOW has been 
referred to as a “creepy, lo-fi, 

break-beat fuelled” version of 
Richard James. Ming Star is the 
debut album from England DJ Jon 
Brooks, a.k.a. King Of 
Woolworths. 

It was just over a year ago he 
was sending his music on CD-Rs 
to a “wish list of celebrity fans” 
and flooding the web, making his 
work available for download. His 
self-promotion style is now pay- 
ing dividends. He has a record 
deal, a new album and a growing 
international fan base. 

The CD is sample heavy, but 
kind of a DJ Shadow-style. Ming 
Star has a very cinematic feel, with 
snippets of British TV and past 
and present film dialogue to twist 
your brain if you’re caught with 
your guard down. Spaced-out, 
synthy and slick, each song melts 
into the next. A glistening trip 
through electronica — lasers, com- 
puter circuitry, squelches, blips. 
It’s all here. Technically, the pro- 
duction on Ming Star will make 
the hair on the back of your neck

X/HEATHER HEART 
W@ Sonic GROOVE: DEFINED 
W INsTINCT RECORDS 

The Sonic Groove Record 
Shop / Label was founded by 
Adam X in 1990. This CD was put 
out to celebrate the anniversary, a 
techno time machine to bring you 
back to the good old days, or give 
you a peek at what you missed 
the first time around. 

The album features Frankie 
Bones, his brother Adam X and 
techno goddess Heather Heart 
slapping down 21 tracks in an 
impressive tag-team DJ set. Bones 
is synonymous with techno, and 
Heart can usually be found next t 
him on the decks. As the three leg- 
ends spin, they suck you into the 
Sonic Groove with Defined. “No 
edits, just us having fun,” as 
Frankie puts it in the liner notes, 
“doing it our own way.” They dig 
out the gold from the Sonic 
Groove archives circa 1990 to 
2001, including works from Miss 
Dinky, Polaris, Directional Force 
and an impressive armada of oth- 
ers.

ous - 83 Miles Form 
ere (a locally produced 
featuring area acts like 
ch as well as some 





Charlie’s younger brother, and 
every bit as talented. 

Embrace - If You've Never Been: 
Grand, sweeping pop-rock from 
Britain. Reminiscent of Mojave 3 
and the Red House Painters’ best 
work. Sounds huge without being 
over-produced. 

The Watchmen - Slomotion: 
Specifically, the disc of new mate- 
rial. I’ve never been the biggest 
fan of the band, but this is really 
different for them, at times melan- 
choly, and just really finely craft- 
ed. 

Buddy & Julie Miller- s/t: At last, 
a “real” album from the two of 
them, and as to be expected, it’s a 
gem — gritty, heartfelt country 
music with soul. Why aren’t these 
two better known? 

Alejandro Escovedo - A Man 
Under the Influence: As far as I’m 
concerned, this man can do no 
wrong. A must for fans of music 
with guts — roots, rock, or other- 
wise. And the players are top 
notch too. 


Radiohead - | Might be Wrong (live 


recordings): I’m the first to admit 
that I didn’t really like Amnesiac. 
Even though this mini-album is 
mostly tunes from that record and 
Kid A, which decidely did not 
“rock,” there’s something about 
this that just begs to be played 
loud. 

Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra & 
Sammy Davis, Jr. - The Rat Pack 
Live at the Sands: Recorded 1963 
and long unissued, this is perhaps 
the pinnacle of political incorrect- 
ness... but it’s so damn funny 
AND it swings harder than Ken 
Griffey, Jr. 

Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun and 
Si*Se: Ok, so I’m cheating — but I 
really couldn’t decide which of 
the two I liked better. Both kind of 
trippy, both sung mainly in for- 
eign languages, and both really 
cool. 

Guilty Pleasure of the Year:

FREQUENTY ASKED QUESTIONS 


FAVOURITE TEACHER: 
Professor Sondra Neissen at the 
U of A. There are teachers who 
simply impart information and 
there are teachers who believe in 
you and help push you along 
the way. Professor Neissen 
believed in me. She taught me a 
Human Ecology course and that 
belief she had in me is really all 
you can ask of any teacher. 


IF YOU COULD LIVE 
ANYWHERE: It would be in 
the middle of the rainforest in 
Oregon. It’s peaceful, it’s beauti- 
ful and the people are very nice. 
The forest goes right to the edge 
of the ocean and you can even 
surf there. I spent some time 
there once and Id do it again in 
an instant. 


DEFINITION OF PERFECTION: 
My daughter Nneka. She’s 
almost four.

Proud papa 


Hi-phonigs singer digs disc, daughter 


STORY BEHIND THE SONG: 
There’s a track on the EP called 
Montreal. Before we actually 
went to that city it was just a 
destination. Now that we've 
been there it’s a fulfilled destiny 
The song really sums up the 
feeling of arriving at and being 
in any place you've every really 
wanted to go, 


PHRASE YOU OVERUSE: 

I’ve been told I’m full of those. 
Hm. “Late Night with Swerve 
Griffin.” That one comes up far 
too often concerning me. 


HOW YOU PASS THE TIME: 
Basketball or squash. I have a fever 
for both of those games. 


FAVOURITE BOOK: I’m reading 
the Robert Jordan series The Eye 
Of The World. Y'm finishing vol- 
ume nine and I believe volume 
10 is due later this winter. It’s 
such a sprawling story, though, 
that who knows whether the 
next book will bring it to a close. 


FIRST CONCERT: My dad took 
me to see Tony Bennett at the 
Jubilee Auditorium about 10 
years ago. It was amazing. We 
were sitting in the second bal- 
cony. He did one song without a 
microphone, hit a top note, and | 
could hear it clear as a bell.

A NEW MORNING 


THE (UTERNATIONAL) NOISE CONSPIRACY 


1. The (International) Noise 
Conspiracy A New Morning 
(Burning Heart/ Epitaph): Well, 
fuck, have you listened to it? Rage, 
fationality and art in perfect bal- 
ance, and that’s without even see- 
ing the video for Capitalism Stole My 
Virginity. 


2. Spoon Girls Can Tell (Merge): 
Ina more perfect world, there 
would be volumes being written 
about these guys as the saviours of 
rock, but in a more perfect world, 
teck wouldn't need saving. 


3. The Strokes Is This It (RCA): 
But as long as rock does need some 
helping hands, there are five 
Strokes in total, meaning ten highly 
capable hands in all. Also: Woo! 
YEAH! 


4. Beulah The Coast Is Never 
Clear (Velocette): Two guys who 
don’t even like each. other all that 
much, and they make such crafty 
pop music! How? And what have 
we done to deserve it? 


5. Jerk With a Bomb The Old 
Noise (Scratch): How I wish I 











made rock and roll crossword 

puzzles or edited Vue, for I too 
can pun! 4 down: Fables of the 
self-destruction. 


6. The Poets of Rhythm 
Discern/Define (Quannum): 
Funky, funky Germans finally get 
a handle on their nostalgia for old 
‘70s fusion, sending it careening 
decades into the future in the 
process. Hear this album! 


7. Edith Frost Wonder Wonder 
(Drag City): She’s wry, she’s dry 
she'll make you cry. She’s Edith 
Frost, I wish she was my older 
sister, and it’s about time you 
indiepopchick fiends got a freak- 
ing clue because she’s a freaking 
genius. Now get out of my sight 


8. Ass Ponys Lohio (Checkered 
Past) C’mon, I’m joking! Come 
back so I can tell you about how 
the Ass Ponys, heretofore produc- 
ers of albums of vastly disparate 
quality, got it all together at one 
time in one place, put a picture of 
a lady in her underwear on the 
dashboard of a car on the cover, 
and came up with my eighth 
favourite album of the year! 


9. Moldy Peaches S/T (Rough 
Trade) Pop music idiot savants, 
with the emphasis on “savant” as 
they do a slow ba-ba-ba on the 
horn riff from Low Rider, “idiot” if 
you're digging all the sex, drugs 
and porn. Too stoopid to hate! 


10. Ludacris Word of Mouf 
(Def Jam) When Eminem has 

nightmares, they’re about 
Ludacris Take that, motherfucker! 
BLAM! BLAM!

The Man Who Wasn’t There 


DAVE ALEXANDER’S 
TOP 15 FILMS OF 2001 


1. The Others — a lesson in how 
to tell the perfect ghost story. 

2. O Brother, Where Art Thou? 
(officially released in 2000, but 
didn’t play E-town until 2001) — 
classic Coen comedy with brilliant 
characters. 

3. The Fellowship of the Ring — 
Peter Jackson + epic fantasy + big 
budget = deserving blockbuster. 
4. Gang Tapes — inventive and 
powerful urban gang drama that 
garnered rave reviews at Local 


Heroes. 
5. Memento — a unique narrative 
structure and bold concept makes 
for a very satisfying mindfuck. 
6. Sexy Beast — punchy British 
gangster flic with darkly humor- 
ous characters. 
7. Waking Life — brave new 
foray into animated surrealism. 
8. Zoolander — underrated come- 
dy with well-executed gags and 
killer costumes that was released 
at the wrong time. 
9. Moulin Rouge — unapologeti- 
cally insane exercise in style. 
10. Ginger Snaps — intelligent 
Canadian werewolf story about 
female puberty. 
11. Ghost World — nobody 
knows the intricacies of being a 

ee nerd like Terry Zwigoff. 

Apocalypse Now Re-dux — 
more epic and twice as intense 
with additional footage. 
13. Cure — bizarre Japanese seri- 
al-killer art film that was a high- 
light of the Metro season. 
14. Tailor of Panama — under- 
stated spy thriller with Pierce 
Brosnan taking the piss out of his 
Bond persona. . 
15. Session 9 — the abandoned 
mental hospital set is beyond dis- 
turbing. 
nn 


DAVE ALEXANDER’S 
BOTTOM FIVE FILMS 
OF 2001 


1. Ghosts of Mars — John 
















Carpenter continues to work 
towards a dishonorable discharge 
from the rank of sci-fi/ horror 
director. 
2. Planet of the Apes —Tim 
Burton + cult classic + studio con- 
trol= ape shit. 
3. Sugar and Spice — the world 
does not need a comedy about 
bank-robbing cheerleaders. 
4. Pearl Harbor — Jerry 
Bruckheimer is a blight upon 
humanity, period. 
5.13 Ghosts — 13 ghosts but zero 
plot, credible performances or 
intelligence. 

ao 


JAIME FREDERICK’S 
TOP 10 FILMS OF 2001 


1. Songs From the Second Floor 
— With its long takes, static com- 
positions, ghostly Otto Dix- 
inspired characters, bleakly poetic 
dialogue, and aggressively anti- 
capitalistic standpoint, a more 
psychologically abusive film is 
hard to imagine in our beleagered 
capitalistic times. Thankfully, 
director Ray Andersson also has a 
sick sense of humour (no matter 
how dry), and although it seems 
like he’s saying “We are the 
dead,” he also treats us to a few 
moments of uncomfortable levity 
to break up the gut-wrenching 
horror. Should it receive a theatri- 
cal run in Canadian cinemas, this 
one is definitely not to be missed. 
2. Waking Life 

3. Mulholland Drive 

4. The Man Who Wasn'’t There 
5. In the Mood for Love 

6. Un crabe dans la téte

LOUISVILLE LIP in contrast to Muhammed Ali’s flamboyant public persona, Michael Mann’s film bio of the 


boxing great focuses as much on his quieter personal side. 


Pretty great 


Ali affirms Smith’s actor credentials 


by Stephen NOTLEY 


A: is a Will Smith movie for 
people who both like and hate 
Will Smith. The folks who like 
him, they'll be happy to see him 
stretch and show the world he 
really knows how to act (not that 
they had any doubt). Those who 
hate him, they should be amazed 
at how un-Will Smithy he is. He's 
done a great job of corking, for the 
most part, his peppy energy and 
his snappy patter, the Will Smith 
thing from movies like Men in 
Black and Independence Day. 

You see flashes of it, of course, 
as Ali spars with the reporters, 
rhyming and riffing with Howard 
Cosell, but even then he doesn’t 
sound like Will Smith doing a 
Smirking Ali impression. He just 
sounds like Ali. 

And when he’s not turning on 
the Ali charm, it’s an oddly 
restrained performance. There’s 

ing slower, heavier about 
him, and I’m not just talking 
ibout the weight and muscle he 
ton for the role. His voice is

white — white shoes, white 
shorts, white robe, white walls, 
even strong overhead light that 
whitens Ali’s skin. It’s probably 
too obvious to say that Aliis a 
black man in a white world, but 
there it is, and it pays off in the 
bursting vibrancy of his trip to 
Zaire, surrounded by yellows and 
oranges and tans and the browns, 
browns, browns of the sea of 
happy African faces. 

Ali covers a fairly thin slice of 
Ali’s life—basically the Champ 
years, from his defeat of heavy- 
weight champ Sonny Liston in 
1964 to his victory in the Rumble 
in the Jungle over George 
Foreman in 1974. There’s boxing 
in the movie, but Ali isn’t as con- 
cerned with Ali the boxer as it is 
with Ali the private man. The film 
reads like a tour of ‘60s American 
history, starting with Ali’s friend- 
ship with Malcolm X (played by 
Mario Van Peebles), moving 
through his complicated relation- 
ship with the Nation of Islam, 
then dealing with the controversy 
surrounding his refusal to accept 
the Vietnam draft. 

Ali is the story of a winner, even 
though there's a sense of 


inevitability to his victories, and

THIS MORTAL QUOYLE Kevin Spacey is less than ideal as the hapless 
Quoyle in Lasse Hallstr6m’s The Shipping News. 


Troubled waters 





Another ‘fine’ film from Hallstrom™ 


by Kevin X. WILSON 


Lok: Your laminated particle 
board table is going to be perfectly 
functional, attractive even, but 
when you rap your knuckles 
against it, it’s going to lack the sat- 
isfying thunk of solid wood. 

Of course, Perfectly Serviceable 
has an audience, and that’s why 
Hallstr6ém’s Fine Films (Lasse 
Hallstrém, prop.) now single- 
mindedly devotes itself to the pro- 
duction of expertly crafted cine- 
ma,_.mixing promising stories with 
broadly drawn characters, hyper- 
rich images, easily wrassled 
iconography and frequent soppi- 
ness. Cinéma enthusiasts have 
taken to the firm’s clean lines — 
witness the reception for The Cider 
House Rules and Chocolat — but 
one wonders whether E. Annie 
Proulx’s wildly popular Pulitzer- 
Prize-winning novel The Shipping 
News deserved more. 

The story was certainly rife with 
possibilities. Timid Quoyle (Kevin 
Spacey), a heartbroken American, 
relocates to Newfoundland with 
his daughter to make a fresh start, 
only to run up against history, 
mystery and destiny. There, in the 


RING in the New Year_ 





The Shipping News 
Opens Wednesday, 
Dec. 26 

At the Garneau Theatre 
***1/2 (out of five) 


isolated home port of his ances- 
tors, Quoyle encounters the 
colourful inhabitants, learns the 
local lore, gets a job at the local 
paper, meets the alluring Wavey 
(Julianne Moore) and grows up. 
Proulx deftly braided the threads 
of her story, added unblinking, 
perceptive characterization, and, 
with artful artlessness, invested 
the proceedings with a solid help- 
ing of Newfoundlandia. 

Though in many ways a hand- 
some film, the cinematic Shipping 
News narrows the focus pre- 
dictably (Suck it Up, Get the Girl) 
and takes pity on the exegetically 
impaired: events approach with 
the stealth of ocean liners on calm 
seas, the director takes pains to 
connect the dots obviously and 
repetitively (one more shot of 


it u: Sy. 








singing steel cables under tension 
and you'll be off to Revy for 
heavy cutters), and every moment 
of portent gets the “pay attention” 
treatment with a few measures of 
moody, heart-jiggling bhodran ‘n’ 
bass. We’re in the Maritimes, 
y’see, famous as the birthplace of 
brooding new age noodling. 

Elements of the story have also 
been rejigged to indulge our taste 
for the maudlin, with every 
prospect of success. That dewi- 
ness is a shame, since Proulx so 
thoroughly eschewed sentimental- 
ity — how better to unravel the 
self-pitying Quoyle? The same 
dry-eyedness made the comedy 
crackle. When the film offers 
glimpses of the novel's wit, it usu- 
ally hits, but more typically 
Hallstr6m abandons Proulx’s 
fizzing flavour in preference for 
spooky atmospherics and melan- 
choly mooning. 

Kevin Spacey and his mannered 
acting might, at first blush, seem 
ill-suited to the portrayal of 
Quoyle. His caricatured, unaffect- 
ing performance does nothing to 
diminish that reservation, a bit of 
central miscasting that hollows 
out the film handily. Spacey can’t 
invest the character with any con- 
tinuity: We never think that the 
timorous and the assertive 
Quoyles were ever the same per- 
son. Who thought it would be a 
good idea to have such a self-con- 
scious artiste acting next to the 
uncontrived Judi Dench? 

Given that the supporting cast 
(with the exception of Dench and 
Cate Blanchett, as Quoyle’s erst- 
while wife Petal) is of uneven 
quality, it’s too bad that so many 
of the performers had to be 
natives of Pennsylvania, 
Minnesota and Old Blighty, when 
local (or relatively local) fellers 
like Gordon Pinsent and Robert 
Joy do such a nice job. 

The result: you've never heard 
mouths full of marbles produce 
such varied interpretations of 
“Newfie talk,” to be sure, but that 
won’t matter to anyone but us. 
Movies like this concern them- 
selves with polished images and 
tidy sentiments. Sometimes 
adding authenticity to your 
handiwork just puts chips in the 
veneer 


Meg’s a charm 


Ryan rescues marginal comedy 


by Rachel SANDERS 


L... get something straight 
right off the bat: if you dislike 
Meg Ryan, you will find Kate and 
Leopold detestable and absurd. 
Let's not kid around here. This is 
a film with a ridiculous premise. 
It relies almost solely on the 
appeal of its acting talent to pull 
it through the tough times. Some 
of us, however, find ourselves 
somewhat charmed by Meg’s 
blue-eyed vivacity. There’s noth- 
ing wrong with that. Even the 
most black-hearted among us 
have secret weaknesses that 
make us go all warm inside, be 
they for fudge brownies or crack 
cocaine. Or, hey, maybe even 
both. And as weaknesses go, 
watching Meg Ryan, though per- 
haps not as edifying as reading 
the complete works of Proust, is a 
fairly harmless one. 

But onwards! Leopold (Hugh 
Jackman, with an impressively 
flawless British accent) is the 
inventor of the elevator and 
inheritor of a bankrupt dukedom, 
He is visiting his uncle in New 
York, where he is being forced to 
choose a rich wife from among 
the buck-toothed socialites of 
1876. Poor Leopold. Luckily, his 
great-great grandson, Stuart — a 
visionary and inventor — comes 
through a time portal from 2001 
and accidentally drags him back 
with him. From thence, Leopold 
has a week to killuntil the next_ 
portal open’ arid gives hima ~~ 
chance to get back home. The 
possible consequences of his fail- 
ing to return to the 19th century 
are conveniently illustrated by a 
sudden and widespread failure 
of elevators all over the city. 

When Stuart falls down the 
shaft of one of said elevators and 
breaks several limbs, Leopold is 
left to his own devices. Lo! He 
meets Stuart’s neighbour and ex- 
girlfriend, Kate (that’s right, that 
would be Meg Ryan), a sensible 
but slightly neurotic woman who 







Kate and Leopold 
Opens Friday, Dec. 21 
Starring Meg Ryan 
Cineplex Odeon 
*x1/2 (out of five) 


works at a market research com- 
pany. Love is fallen into and the 
two are left wondering: what are 
the logistics of maintaining a 
relationship from 125 years 
apart? Is it really going to be 
worth the long-distance phone 
bills? 

Naturally, acceptance of the 
silly premise is vital to even the 
scantiest enjoyment of the film. 
There is, nonetheless, enjoyment 
to be had here. Aside from a few 
dog poop and erection jokes, 
some of the dialogue is surpris- 
ingly smart. Or, at least, not com- 
pletely fatuous. “You have every 
convenience, but no time for 
integrity,” rages Leopold of New 
Yorkers in 2001. Later, Stuart 
likens the idea of humans being 
able to see the flaws in time to 
the idea of “a dog finding a rain- 
bow.” Dogs, of course, being 
colour blind. 

And Meg? Well she’s cute, as 
ever, and it’s nice to see SO many 
women over the age of 30 contin- 
uing to play the love interest 
these days instead of being rele- 
gated-to the frumpy miont rOles. 
On the Meg scale, this one is a far 
cry from the triumph of When 
Harry Met Sally but, thank the 
fickle gods of Hollywood, it’s cer- 
tainly no vomitous You've Got 
Mail. 

Kate and Leopold contains all of 
the usual romantic comedy flaws 
but manages to be a little charm- 
ing all the same. Crap? Sure. But 
not the really super stinky kind. 
It’s a fairytale: silly but sweet. 
Not bad for a mid-week video 
rental in frigid February.

Travolta plays a divorced dad whose

usual problems with his new stepfather

remarkably lean on thrills, or anything 
else to recommend it. Maybe Travolta 
can prepare for his next scheduled 
comeback in 2011 by dropping off the 
silver screen for a little while. * (RS)

either mad or brilliant. Director 
Alejandro Amenabar is the later. This 
story of a family trapped in a house 
on an island has a rare, haunting 
resonance that grips the spine and 
raises the hairs on the back of the 
neck. **%&** (DA)

Year starts strong, finishes stronger 


by Gilbert A. BOUCHARD 


Can up with a 2001 Top 10 
theatre list is kind of hard, given 
how powerful the start of the 
2001-2002 season was. 

Without any debate, September 
and October saw some of the 
finest theatre on Edmonton’s 
boards in years: each theatre com- 
pany seemed to be striving to top 
the other with flawless launches, 
from a rollicking Studio Theatre 
take on The Caucasian Chalk Circle 
and a Broadway-quality produc- 
tion of Cabaret at the Citadel. 











WORKSHOP WEST’S MESA 





This should not be interpreted 
to mean that the tail end of the 
2000-2001 season was chopped 
meat, given that it also boasted a 
great selection of above-average 
productions. The challenge is 
knowing how to balance out the 
praise fairly across the calendar 
year. \ 

Taking this into consideration, 


here’s my take on the top 10 most 
memorable productions of the 
first year of the 21st century. 


1) The Citadel Theatre’s reprise 
adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A 
Christmas Carol. This play 
deserves top listing if only for its 
stunning stage-magic. Not to say 
the acting was grand or the text 
not a brilliant dramatic interpreta- 
tion of a Victorian classic, but both 
these massive strengths were 
totally blown out of the water ina 
full-formed and stunningly craft- 
ed piece that defines the wonder 
of live theatre. 


2) Michel 
Tremblay’s 
The Pleasure 
of Seeing Her 
Again. For my 
money, 
Tremblay is 
one of 
Canada’s top 
three contem- 
porary play- 
wrights and 
this Theatre 
., Network pro- 
z duction of his 
4 most recent 
g play was a 
= textbook 
delight. This 
tour-de-force 
is no mean 
feat, given the 
work’s claustrophobic kitchen- 
table tightness and the potential 
for sentimentality embodied in 
any memory play. 


3) Yasmina Reza’s Art. One of the 
year’s smartest plays managed to 
explore, in a wildly engaging fash- 
ion, the contorted world of art the- 
ory and male friendship. Tom 


Wood ruled the vast Citadel 
Theatre Shoctor Stage as he is 
wont. 


4) Conor McPherson's The Weir. 
A risky start to 
the Shadow 
Theatre season, 
this talky Irish 
ghost-story- 
laden narrative is 
endlessly engag- 
ing, and it played 
to well-deserved 
sold-out houses. 


5) Moliere x 3. 
This hilarious 
and witty pro- : 
duction certainly 
put the talented 
Studio Theatre 
class of 2001 
through their 


play virtually defined deft. This 
work managed to embrace sweet 
ness and kitsch without veering 
into coy or saccharine territories 





paces, under the SHADOW THEATRE’S THE WEIR 


direction of 
Québécois theatre 
guru Micheline Chevrier and 
working with fresh translations of 
the historic French playwright by 
Stewart Lemoine and David 
Belke. 


6)Manon Beaudoin’s Terre Bleue. 
It’s too bad the language barrier 
kept a wider audience from seeing 
this engaging and slickly pro- 
duced written-in-Alberta French- 
language play by L’Unitheatre. 
This production also reminded me 
how great a theatrical space the 
Cité Francophone is. 


7) Eric Bogosian’s Suburbia and 
Sex Drugs Rock and Roll. You, 
know, ona textual/intellectual ~ 
level I’m no fan of Bogosian, but 
he sure does produce well. We 
were lucky enough to enjoy two 
local productions of the play- 
wright, one played out in a bar 
and the other at the Fringe — 
appropriate venues for such edgy 
work. 


8) Doug Curtis’ Mesa. Workshop 
West's effervescent production of 
this inter-generational roadtrip 








9) Sir Noel Coward’s Blithe 
Spirit. It’s a comedy by Coward 
directed by John Hudson. Need | 
say more? 


10) Audrei-Kairen’s Big Mama: 
The Willie Mae Thornton Story. 
This brilliant “show-she-never- 
gave” musical was so totally sky- 
high on the veracity metre, some 
patrons forgot they were watchin: 
a play and were shocked when 
actress Jackie Richardson didn’t 
come back for an encore! Not that 
I blame them. I’ve seen many a 
real-life concert that came 
nowhere near the energy of this 
fictional cabaret.

aspect we occasionally forget 
lucky we are to live in 
nton and how many advan- 
this city offers. 
in point: our vibrant and 
id restaurant scene. 
rics we might not have all 
the grand named-after-its-famous- 
Pd eateries that larger centres 
‘but we do very well indeed 
it comes to accessible, medi- 
ae establishments and 
independent joints. 

Good eating is certainly to be 
had as well as friendly service and 
dining rooms where you actually 
Want to relax and spend an 
evening. 

In no particular order, here’s an 
across-the-genres top 10 list of 
eateries I’ve written about in the 
last year that stand out in one way 
or another. 


LOS ANDES RESTAURANT 
3903 - 99 ST. 
Great home-style cooking best- 


ed by a novel Chilean menu. 
Nothing really fancy here, but 
truly one of those rare “hidden 
gems” that you endlessly hear 
about but seldom get to enjoy 


SAVOY 
10401 - 82 AVE. 
FLY BAR AND KITCHEN 
10314 - 104 ST. 

You know, I don’t ask for much 
when it comes to a cocktail lounge 
except for a well-mixed drink and 
a serviceable bare-bones menu 
prepared with some panache, and 
I still come up short so often. All 
the more reason why it’s so 
important to heap praise on clubs 
like Savoy and Fly that do the 
cocktail boite to such perfection. 
Kudos for the atmosphere in both 
gin joints. 


DADEO 
10548 - 82 AVE. 
Boasting a brand-new owner- 
ship as of August (and a slightly 
re-jigged menu as of this month) 
this two-fisted ’50s-era diner and 
its classy take on home-style 


Cajun cookery remains as friendly 
and ultra-hip as ever. Many a 
restaurant could use this popular 
hangout as a template for service 
and dining comfort. 


KOUTOUKI TAVERNA 
10704 - 124 ST. 

Not only does this restaurant do 
Greek dishes to lip-smacking levels 
of decadence, they’ re next door to 
the Roxy, making for a great din- 
ner/ theatre night out. 


DANTE’S BISTRO 17328 - 
STONY PLAIN RD. 

Speaking of restaurants cen- 
tring on a famous chef, Dante's is 
the brainchild of chef Emmanuel 
David (formerly with the Westin 
Hotel) and the most talked-about 
restaurant opening of 2001. The 
food deserves all the buzz and 
then some. 


SUSHI WASABI 
5714-111 ST. 

In a sentence: you can taste the 
love in this endlessly authentic 
Japanese sushi establishment. This 
joint will make you a convert. 


RIVO TAPAS RESTAURANT 
9707 -110ST. 
This relatively brand-new kid 


on the block boasts a broad menu 
that’s deft enough for most and 
friendly to boot. Not to mention 
this restaurant has one of the bet- 
ter views in town. 


THE HARVEST ROOM 
HOTEL MACDONALD 
10065 - 100 ST. 

You can’t ask for a better, more 
elegant surrounding to have a meal 

in than the Harvest Room, an 
eatery that’s still more affordable 
than you'd guess. I’m also a big fan 
of their commitment to Alberta 
ingredients and the development of 
a true prairie cuisine. 


PARIS MARKET 
10363 - 104 ST. 

What a total hidden-lunchroom 
gem. A perfect little diner boast- 
ing, accessible blue-ribbon conti- 
nental cuisine with a New York 
City flair. 


JULIO’S BARRIO 
BOURBON ST. WEM 
After ruling over Whyte Avenue, 
the entry of Julio’s in to the WEM 
dining scene means there’s now at 


least one good place to nosh at the 
mall that ate West Edmonton. 






























*s on First 10117-101 St., 
nonton: 425-6151: It's no surprise 
iy Zenari’s is such a hot downtown

Sherlock Holmes Pub downtown: A hop- 
ping joint and a long-time after work dar-

good beer selection and a menu that goes 
well beyond the expected pub fare. 
Overall rating: & +. 
Stonehouse Pub on the corner of 
Jasper Ave. and 111 St., Edmonton, - 
420-0448: Every neighbourhood needs 
its very own watering hole and Oliver 
is lucky to have Stonehouse Pub. A 
rf friendly joint, this establishment 
kinda place boasting 


modeled on Tokyo's ubiquitous noodle 
shops (Japanese take on fast-food), 
this ultra-hip Garneau Lofts restaurant 
instantly became a Whyte Avenue 
institution. Super-affordable, | espe-

lightly fried Salmon Karaage. Overall

BRUNCH & BREAKFAST FAVOURITES | 


Twig ’n’ Berries, 8430-103 St., 413-6282 
—It's tiny, it keeps strange hours, but it's 
a hidden gem. Everything's comfortably 
home-style, made from scratch and you'll 
be hard pressed to get friendlier service. 
A great place to unwind after a Saturday 
morning at the Farmer’s Market. Overall 
rating: k#**. 

High Level Diner, 10912-88 Ave., 433- 
0993 — An excellent overall restaurant, | 
just love the High Level’s brunch and 
breakfasts. From super-decadent to total- 
ly healthy the offerings at this Edmonton 
eating-out-institution are always top- 
notch and served with an enviable 
panache. Go early on weekends though.

The Year in Sex 


Josey recounts the year that was 


2001: 
e Asex odyssey. 


Here's but a sampling of weird and 
wonderful news from the world of 
sex. 


JANUARY 

W Researchers discovered that — 
wait for it, kids — pot makes you 
horny. According to a study pub- 
lished in the National Academy of 
Sciences, THC, the active ingredient 
in marijuana, increases dopamine (a 
chemicai that makes your randy) in 
the brain. If only you could get off 
the couch and do something about 
it. 


FEBRUARY 

@ Organized by Club Hedonism 
as a mass nude wedding, 11 couples 
tied the knot in the buff on 
Valentine’s Day in Runaway Bay, 
Jamaica. One question: Where does 
the best man keep the ring? 

@ Dr. William Masters, who with 
his former wife, Virginia Johnson, 
wrote the 1966 book Human Sexual 
Response, died at age 85 of complica- 
tions from Parkinson’s disease. 


MARCH 

@ Ellen Fein, one of the authors of 
that oh-so-enlightened book, The 
Rules: Time tested Secrets for Capturing 
Mr. Right, announced she was 
divorcing her husband of 16 years. 
Fein ‘fessed up just prior to the 
release of The Rules III: Time Tested 
Secrets for Making Your Marriage 
Work, in which fe and co-author 
Sherrie Schneider suggest women be 
subservient to their husbands. So 
much for that, huh? 


APRIL 
Two lesbian brides and six gay 
4 See as the world’s first 
Eoreseor 0 to 







tion.” According to the American 
Academy of Family Physicians up to 
40 per cent of U.S. males have diffi- 
culties with premature ejaculation 
(PE) at some time in their lives. 
Smoke a little pot, pop a Deferol and 
yer off to the races! 

@ The Brava Bra was introduced. 
The battery-powered vacuum bra, 
which sells for around $2,500 U.S., 
can reportedly enlarge breasts by up 
to one cup size. Good Morning 
America’s Holly Millea tried it, say- 
ing; “I feel like I have plungers on.” 
Wow, just the way I like my breasts 
to feel. 


JUNE 

@ Health Canada approved clini- 
cal testing on a reversible male con- 
traceptive implant. The Intra Vas 
Device is composed of two tiny sili- 
cone plugs which are inserted into 
the vas deferens tubes (they carry 
sperm from the testicles to the penis) 
to block sperm. I’m sure the boys 
will be lining up for that one. Most 
men won't even get swabbed! 


JULY 

B Berlin motorcyclist Michael 
Gruber crashed into a tree and man- 
aged to rip his willy off. Gruber got a 
brand-new penis fashioned from 
muscle tissue in his arm. A tube 
inside the muscle allows him to uri- 
nate properly and he can even get an 
erection. He’s also developing quite 
a tricep in his dick. 

@ Turkey's Health Minister 
Osman Durmus introduced legisla- 
tion that subjects girls studying at _ 
adalat ede te and 





virginity tests were common in 
Turkey until the practice was banned 
in 1999 after five girls took rat poison 
rather than submit to the examina- 
tions. 


AUGUST 

B Jonathan Heatley, a 45-year-old 
doctor in Britain, performed a vasec- 
tomy on himself using only a local 
anaesthetic and scalpel. The GP, who 
already has three children, complet- 
ed the procedure in 20 minutes while 
a nurse and his wife stood by in case 
anything went wrong. Dr. Heatley 
was back at work the next day. 
What's next? Do-it-yourself brain 
surgery? 


SEPTEMBER 

@ After the Sept. 11 attacks in the 
U.S., psychologists and therapists 
have described an increase in what 
they called “terror sex” — a phe- 
nomenon seen as an expression of 
our life-affirming need to connect in 
times of trouble. (Apparently, people 
were going at it like rabbits after 
Pearl Harbor, too.) 

@ Researchers revealed a proce- 
dure to help women undergoing 
chemotherapy remain fertile. In two 
cases, doctors implanted sections of 
ovaries into their patients’ forearms, 
where they developed into “mini- 
ovaries” that produce eggs. They 
hope to harvest the eggs for future 
in-vitro fertilization. Excuse me... 
you've got a little egg on your arm. 

Dr. Jocelyne Piret of Laval 
University in Quebec City intro- 
duced the “invisible condom,” an 
experimental, heat-activated gel that 
reportedly prevents the transmission 
of HIV and herpes. It also prevents 
pregnancy. Applied in liquid form 
inside the vagina, the body’s heat 


turns the “condom” to a gel that may. 


be effective for up to six hours. 
Clinical trials are underway, and 
researchers hope the product will hit 
the market sometime in 2002. Honey, 
have you seen the condoms? 


OCTOBER 
A New Jersey entrepreneur 
developed Osama bin Laden con- 


doms. Jeff Weiss said his “al-Qaeda” _ 


ndon 





unclogging all those toilets. 

@ The world’s first Oral Sex World 
Championships were held in the 
Black Sea resort town of Mamaia, 
Romania. “Claudia,” a brothel owner 
from Amsterdam, won the $1,000 
award by demonstrating to the all- 
male jury her expertise based on 
speed and artistic merit in “techni- 
cal” and “freestyle” heats. I’m work- 
ing on a little routine for next year. 


NOVEMBER 

@ Buildings were evacuated and 
traffic stopped in Toronto after a 
woman mistook a vibrator for a 
bomb: She found the vibrator stuck 
to a length of pipe and wrapped in 
black electrical tape in a café toilet. 
Police determined the bomb was a 
fake in less than five minutes. And 
the vibrator was taped to bathroom 
pipes because...? 

B An Italian woman gets pregnant 
while pregnant. Twenty-year-old 
Flavia D’ Angelo was in her sixth 
month of pregnancy when routine 
tests revealed an extra set of triplets, 
just three months along. If the fetus- 
es live to term, this would be a first. 
Experts say women shouldn’t be 
able to conceive once pregnant 
because ovulation ceases. However, 
the condition — known technically 
as superfecundation — does occur 
rarely in animals. Reminds me of 
blowing bubbles inside of bubbles. 
Too weird. 


DECEMBER 

@ Scientists at Concordia 
University in Montreal are develop- 
ing a spray-on aphrodisiac. The 
nasal spray, which contains PT-141, 
a chemical that stimulates sexual- 
response centres in the brain, has 
been tested on rats. Psychology pro- 
fessor Jim Pfaus says female rats 
given the spray were more likely to 
solicit sex from their mates. 
Anytime, anywhere. The drug, if 
successful, won't be available for 
about four years. Spray-on hair, 
spray-on sex, where will it end...

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22- Jan. 19) _ 


Be extra careful at the start of the New Year 

‘cause visibility on the path that you've chosen 
won't be all that clear. In fact, it's gonna be doi 

right foggy and if, on top of that, you're mind's all I 
groggy, you won't be ready when the road gets © 
rocky. That’s why it’s important now for you to\be # 
cautious, not cocky! | 


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 19) 

Aquarius, you're scarin’ us! We look up to you ag | 
someone who can make it through almost any- 
thing ‘cause you know what to do to stay true toy 
your beliefs. But now, at the most delicate time/af |

ARIES (March 21 - April 19) 

You're the first sign in the Zodiac and if you want

down to Karma, there ain't-no place for you to

Be assertive! 


ot getting what you want? Try Sane 


1m in my 30s and I've had a 
ir bit of sexual experience. Not 
wch surprises or shocks me, 
d to say, but this time I'm 
jumped. Here’s what happened: 
as at a club with someone I'd 
et a few weeks prior and we 
sre getting pretty steamy. We 
ere off in a corner, watching the 
nd. He placed me in front of 
and then freed his “mem- 
er.” He took my hand and put it 
1 his penis — and this is where 
pu come in, Dan, because ques- 
ons raced through my mind: 
as | supposed jerk him until he 
me? Ifso, where exactly would 
come? What if something got 
n my black shirt? 
Have you got any insight into 
at a guy might be expecting 
en he does something like 
is? | feel as if | must be miss- 
j the logic somewhere along 
line. 
We're Still Goin’ Clubbing 


is a few of my female readers 
ently pointed out, “[women are] 
ight to be passive and nice and 
imidated by men.” (In the same 
umn, another easily intimidated 
mber of the weaker sex told me 
“shut the fuck up,” called me a 
pid asshole fuck.”) So before |

ing yourself but you're concerned 
about, say, him spoogin’ up your 
black shirt — ask a few questions 
but ask them sexy. He puts his 
dick in your hand in a public place. 
Fine. You’re not opposed to a little 
PDE (public display of erection). 
But how far does he wanna go? 
Does he want you to make him 
come? Or is he just messing 
around? To find out which it is, 
hold on to his dick like you have 
no intention of letting it go, lean 
back, smile, and say, “And just 
what do you want me to do with 
this thing, huh?” 

If he shrugs or grunts or doesn’t 
answer, keep holding on to his 
dick, keep squeezing, and say,

night, and I’ve been “too busy” at 
the restaurant to see her. 
Essentially my questions are: 
How (else) should | have handled 
the oral sex situation? And am I 
doing the right thing by, ahem, 
blowing her off? 

What About My Needs? 


Oh, Jesus, when are you women 
going to learn to speak up for 
yourselves? All you had to do was 
open your mouth and say — Hey, 
wait a minute, a closer reading of 
your letter reveals that you're a 
man, WAMN. You're one of those 
people who're supposed to be 
pushy and demanding and selfish, 
not passive and nice and intimidat- 
ed! What the fuck is wrong with 
you? 

You may not be a woman, 
WAMN, but my advice for you is 
the same as my advice for WSGC: 
All you had to do was goddamn 
mouth and ask a simple goddamn 
question. In your case the ques- 
tion was, “Hey, I'd like to get off, 
too... so, uh, howzaboutit it?” 
That question would’ve put ancient 


‘Being too passive during a sexual 
encounter can leave a woman feeling 
used or worse. So be assertive.’ 





until you tell me exactly what I’m 
supposed to do with it, you freaky 
boy.” Or whatever. Put to him that 
way, he’s in no position to refuse 
you an answer. And if he wants 
you to jerk him off in public, and 
you're turned on by the idea, how 
can you avoid soiling your shirt? 
You can point his dick in some 
other direction when he’s about to 
come. Or, if the club is crowded, 
you can point it at someone else’s 
shirt. 


| have a question about eti- 
quette. | was working at my 
restaurant when a girl-style cus- 
tomer hit on me. I’m a 21-year- 
old heterosexual male. She wait- 
ed for me at the bar until | got off 
work, we went to another bar and 
danced until 5 a.m. Then | met up 
with her the next day and found 
out that she’s a lot older than | 
thought she looked in dim bar 
light. She’s in her mid to late 
30s. She was giving birth to the 
first of her two kids when | was in 
third grade. She’s a recent 


_ divorcee. All fine. I’m thinking 
we're e gonna have a very physical 
- relationship. But all 





girlfriend in the position of having 
to explain herself or put out. Since 
she’s still calling, it’s not too late 
to ask her why she was so insensi- 
tive to your needs and, best of all, 
it’s not too late for her to put out. 
The next time she calls say, “Look, 
| made you come, and | wanted to 
come, too, and | thought | made 
that pretty clear. But you didn't 
seem interested in reciprocating. A 
guy who doesn’t care about a 
woman’s sexual fulfillment is con- 
sidered a lousy, selfish lover. So if 
you can offer me some explanation 
for your behavior that night that 
convinces me you're not a lousy, 
selfish, inconsiderate lover, | 
might want to see you again.” 


Here’s another point of view on

wish | could remember her 
name) who recounts being young, 
somewhat buzzed, and not really

made a huge pass at her, and she
