It's Darkest Just Before the Curtain

Michelangelo Antonioni's gift to the world: Jeanne Moreau, Marcello Mastroianni, and Monica Vitti in bad moods. In a classic of epically Italian proportions, these thespian geniuses are condemned to confusion, drunken wandering, and posession of just enough depth to wonder what's wrong with their lives. Overall, the world of 1961 upper-class intellectual existential lovelessness makes audiences feel good, if they don't identify with the characters, or bad, if they do. Not the feel-good jam of the summer by any stretch of the imagination, just a brilliant, beautiful film.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
